“Spirit and Soul”


The spirit of man is his intellect and his soul is the flesh. So often we read in scripture of the importance of repentance and how we need to renew our mind! “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.(Romans 12:2).

The days we live in our body (The Flesh) will one day be judged by what we did with it. What is of the flesh and what is of the spirit war against each other and when we say we are redeemed and saved yet live according to the flesh is like saying we are a little bit pregnant. “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit”.(Galatians 5:24,26). It just isn’t that way with the Spirit of God for the Spirit is given without measure. We are of Christ if we bring forth fruit fit for his kingdom and do not continue in the acts of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16-23).

“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul”.(1 Peter 2:11). It is written of the necessity of faith for the believer, as a Christian does not return to their old way of life they came from and they press forward in believing of the saving of the soul! “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition: but of them that believe to the saving of the soul”.(Hebrews 10:38,39).

The will of God is that we draw and stay close to him and stay away from evil so that we remain blameless of any sin committed. (1 Thessalonians 5:18-24). If we live our lives and not incorporate God into it and continue in sin then death to our soul is inevitable. And when all is said and done we stand alone before the judgment seat of Christ. “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him”.(Ezekiel 18:20).

  1. One statement is enough for a mature and evolved spirit to understand the immortal importance of a sentence, of a written line, due to its indestructible invaluable content that teaches how the spirit should act to develop the inner God, or to turn into Spirit and Truth, or to realise in it the teachings of the Bible – YOU ARE GODS.
    There are people who devour books, searching for religions, sects and banners, listening to the incarnate and the discarnate, but they do not change inwardly and do not really blossom… They are like mediocrity that goes around the PERFECTION, without ever reaching it…
    The Exemplary Word warned these people, by saying: “The Kingdom of God is inside each one, it does not come with external signs.”
    Therefore, those who do not know how to LOOK FOR THEMSELVES, and have not FOUND THEMSELVES yet, will have to search high and low, hovering unhappily, in the kingdom of emptiness and painful doubts.
    An old initiatic saying teaches: “The good disciple awaits doing good.”
    The Exemplary Word also taught: “Upon your patience you shall build your souls.”
    These abstracts say to the immature, to those empty spirits: “Learn how to run to your inner self, because it is there that God has placed His Divine Virtues, which, when blossomed, will make you a TOTAL ONE, GOD IN GOD, BECAUSE NO ONE WILL BE CHILD OF GOD ETERNALLY.”
    However, let us remember these wise words: “One word to those who understand it is worth a whole speech to those who do not understand it.”

    All the best. With love, Neil.

  2. Neil…….. Your analogy is correct to the point of the kingdom of God is within us, and we must personally search with our whole heart and draw closer to God. “Jeremiah 29:13”.
    Jesus spoke in parables for a reason, as we see when the disciples asked him why his message was spoken this way his reply was so those who are searching and know his truth will understand and that by repentance a person is healed and will then understand his message, Behold we know all things become new as we put of the old man and put on the new! A person is no longer blinded by their sin and is healed as we read this in “Mark 4:10-12”.
    When a person experiences Deja Vu they believe of past lives and aliens, but this is not why it happens as we read in “Romans 8:29-31″……We are a predestined people and many fall prey to the lie of aliens and past lives which is untrue and from the enemy of our souls who wants us to believe and look away from the truth of our soul as satan is a liar and the father of it! As Jesus said if we are of him we would believe him and not a lie.(John 10:10)……….(John 8:42-47).
    God Bless You Neil I enjoyed your comment, and pray for God’s guidance in your life.
