Body, Soul and Spirit

This is based on the verses below;

Ecclesiastes 12:7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

The Spirit will always return to God with or without you.

If you pass, it will return with you. If you fail, it will return without you.

“And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment,” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭9:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. Whoever is victorious will not be harmed by the second death.” Revelation‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Also, the verse is clear that soul and spirit can be cut separating them.

“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”Hebrews 4:12 NLT

While the new body is based on the verse below:

“While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.” 2 Corinthians 5:4 NLT

We are actually like a computer:

  1. There is the hardware (Monitor/keyboard/mouse) = body
  2. There is the operating system (Windows/Mac) = Soul. When we are born, the soul in us is basically empty then, it accumulates consciousness together with the body up to the point of death. After that, it becomes the final version of us but not in the fleshly body anymore.
  3. And, there is the power (current) = spirit.

The hardware or body and Operating system are useless without the power (current).

Someday, the current hardware or body will corrode but the operating system or the soul can still live if placed in a new body but only if the power or, the spirit is still connected.

“While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.” 2 Corinthians 5:4 NLT

This spirit is the breath of God given to us. (Gen. 2:7)

The will of the spirit is not ours per se but of God, though we cannot impose our own will to the spirit that gives us life, it also does not intervene with our choices so that, whatever we choose is due to us not due to the spirit who gives us life.

For this reason, when the bible commanded:

“Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:37‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Spirit is not included because there is no need, for after all, the spirit is the God within you, not in exact quality as in the Son but a lesser quality and a part of God that gives you life from the moment you were conceive to date.
