Spirit Soul and Body


Published on

Man was created a tripartite. He is composed of spirit, soul and body. How man is composed explains why we had to be restored by a God Trinity.
Where does the spirit, soul and body reside after man's death? Man was made in the image of God, he is created to last for eternity. Reward or Judgment.

  11. 11. “… and man became a living soul .” BODY SOUL SPIRIT SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  12. 12. God did not call man a “man”, but He called him a “ soul ”. The reason for this is that a man is judged by his soul. The soul is the organ of man’s free will , and both human spirit and human body are incorporated into it. The soul has the free will. It takes as its master the part that it likes .

  18. 18. THE SPIRIT OF MAN SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  19. 19. The human spirit is not the soul and is not the Holy Spirit. John 4:24 says, 24 God is spirit , and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.&quot;
  20. 20. Man’s spirit is composed of three parts: Conscience – the discernment of right and wrong Intuition – the direct consciousness not dependent on anything else. Fellowship – our worship to God
  21. 21. THE SOUL OF MAN SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  22. 22. The soul is where man’s consciousness lies. Man is conscious of his own existence because of the activity of the soul. Everything included in man’s personality is a part of the soul.
  23. 23. Three main elements in a man’s personality: Will – deliberating organ where the power of judgment lies. Mind – thinking organ where intellect, knowledge and mental capacity resides. Emotion – organ of love, hatred, and sentiments.
  24. 24. Without the will , man would be a machine. Without the mind , man would become totally foolish. Without the emotion , man would be senseless like wood or stone. SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  25. 25. THE FALL OF MAN SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  26. 26. The man God created is very different from the other things that God created. When God created man, He gave man an absolute free will . Both obedience and disobedience are at his discretion , and he can choose either at will .
  27. 27. The temptation of Satan comes first to the body , then to the soul , and last to the spirit . … “ lust of the flesh ”… then “ lust of the eyes ”… and “ the vainglory of life .”
  28. 28. The tree of knowledge led to man’s fall, but God used the foolish tree to save man. 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree , so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. 1Peter 2:24
  29. 29. All the devil’s works go from the outside to the inside , while all the works of God’s Spirit go from the inside to the outside .
  30. 30. WAY OF SALVATION SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  31. 31. All of man’s spirit, soul and body have been permeated by death. Death is present at every part of man . Therefore, man has no alternative but to receive God’s life.
  32. 32. “ there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” Romans 8:1
  33. 33. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.   9 Since we have now been justified by his blood , how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! 10 For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son , how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Romans 5: 8-10
  34. 34. The cross bears the punishment of the sinner, the cross evaluates the worth of the sinner, the cross crucifies all sinners, and the cross releases the life of the Lord Jesus .
  35. 35. REGENERATION SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  36. 36. Before man is regenerated, his spirit is far away from God and is dead . The soul controls the whole man so that he lives either in his i deas or in his excitement . The lusts and desires of the body bring the soul into subjection.
  37. 37. To be born again is completely a matter in the spirit ; it has no relationship with the soul or the body. Only spirit can serve Spirit (Rom. 1:9; 7:6; 12:11), only spirit can know Spirit (1 Cor. 2:9-12), only spirit can worship God who is Spirit (John 4:23-24; Phil. 3:3), and only spirit can receive revelation from God who is Spirit (Rev. 1:10; 1 Cor. 2:10)
  38. 38. How can man obtain regeneration of the spirit? 5 If we have been united with Him like this in His death, we will certainly also be united with Him in His resurrection Romans 6:5
  39. 39. THE NEW SPIRIT 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26 SOLUS CHRISTUS www.salvation123.com
  40. 40. Man's deadened, fallen spirit is made alive by receiving God's life imparted through the power of the Holy Spirit. This is regeneration . The eternal life in John 3:16 is the life of God which is put into man's spirit by the Holy Spirit. Because this life is God's life , which can never die, all who have been regenerated have this life and are said to &quot;have eternal life.&quot;
  41. 41. This rebirth is the first step in the spiritual life . If after regeneration, a believer remains for a prolonged period of time in the flesh , God's saving way will not be manifested to be perfected in him.
