According to 1 Thessalonians 5:23, man has a body, soul and Spirit.
Lets look at some facts about the body, soul and Spirit.
John 4:24 says God is a Spirit, this means, God created man and everything in Spirit. What you see in the realms of the flesh are all manifestations of God's creation. In Genesis 2:7, God breathed into man and man became a living soul not a living body; indicating that God's original creation was the soul not the body. This therefore means, the body is the manifested soul. That's why in our dreams the soul looks exact as our physical body.
1. No one can kill the soul except He who created it according to Matthew 10:28.
2. All souls are for God according to Ezekiel 18:4
3. The soul and the Spirit are linked according to Hebrews 4:12
4.When God has something for you, He gives it to your soul which is then manifested to the flesh through your faith, 3 John 1:2, 1 Corinthians 2:14, Hebrews 11:3.
The Spirit of man is the breath of life that God put into man. The breath of life was not just air but the Spirit of God that He put into man. God put His Spirit into man to connect man to Himslef (God). Is like having your fathers blood in your veins, you are then a true son of your father. God is a Spirit, hence, we have His Spirit in our soul, this makes us His children according to John1:12-13. In Genesis 2:7, God breathed into the nostrils of Adam and he became a living soul. Reading Job 27:3 from the old King James version or from the Jewish bible, Job said, the Spirit of God is still in my nostrils. This means the breath God put into Adam was His Spirit.
John 1:1-3,14 tells us that Jesus is God and all things were created through Him, infact Colossians 1:15-16, says Jesus created all things. Then we can conclude that Jesus breathed into Adam. Jesus was again breathing into man and this time around it was the disciples. He breathed into them and said receive the Spirit according to John 20:21-22.
1. The Spirit God put into man is a life giving Spirit according to Psalm 146:4
2.Without the Spirit one is dead spiritually according to James 2:26. Disconnected from God, think of it like having another man's DNA instead of your father.
3.The Spirit is from God according to Ecclesiastes 12:7, 1 Corinthians 6:19-22
4. The bible calls the Spirit the light of God according to proverbs 20:27, John 1:4-5.
5. The Spirit is the life of God that enables us to walk in the Spirit, the bible says the desires of the Spirit are in contrast with the desires of the flesh. Hence, walking in the flesh kills the Spirit in man according to Galatians 5:16-17, John 3:6, 1 Corinthians 6:17.
6. We serve God in our Spirit according to Romans 1:9.
In conclusion, man has a body, soul and Spirit. Your Spirit links you to God, hence, learn to walk by the Spirit.
