Human Series: Spirit

Part 1 – The Spirit of Mankind

According to the Bible, God formed man in His image and likeness, and through His Spirit, the breath of human life began. God made man distinct from all the rest of His creation, including the animals.

(Go back to Introduction Human Series)

As God is the Supreme head in the tri-unity, a group of three closely related members is known as Trinity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Man has three parts, Spirit, soul, and body.

Apostle Paul writes: “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely, and may your spirit, soul, and body be preserved complete without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” —1Thessalonians 5:23(NASB).

Note that the conjunction “AND” indicates that God himself, without ambiguity, that the three, the Spirit, soul, and body are distinct from one another. Yet many disregard this accurate word of God, and their understanding could spring to lost souls.

Spirit

A spirit can be a life force responsible for our daily survival. The atmosphere we associate with, people, our family, work, and even the pets we have and the food we consume daily are all part of our spiritual being.

The people we meet every day sometimes shape our mood for the day. It drives us to do better or puts us down sometimes. Therefore, it is wise to know who you are dealing with, either daily or from time to time. The Bible says to avoid dealing or fellowshipping with darkness, meaning people without fear of God.

God and no one else is the choice to be with us every day of our life; His Spirit gives life. When God is with you, no one else can be against you, and if there is one that will be against you, then you already know it is not of God. Spirit relates to our soul, and the body follows the dictate of our soul.

The relationship between God and humanity is through His Spirit.

Jesus said God is a Spirit, and whoever worships Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth. To sum it up, our relationship is through worship through prayer. Our obedience to His will and to accomplish His purpose for us to be like Him must acknowledge His wholeness and fullness that He is all in all.  

The giver of life rewards those with the Spirit of obedience and discipline. Christians emphasize that the human Spirit becomes a partaker of God’s Divine Nature once they become a New Creature in Christ, the core of Christian doctrine.

God is a Spirit with supreme power to think, see, and feel.   

In other words, whatever our souls possess, He has that too but more significant than what we have; but He does not need a body to communicate with us; he does not need a soul that dies; all in all, He is a Spirit that has everything with unlimited power, can be everywhere and knows everything. No matter how great we do here on earth, it is still nothing.

Our body decays in due time while the souls that sin die and the Spirit returns to God. God has feelings that when we idolize something, He gets angry. He is a jealous Father, and He punishes those who disobey His will but loves those who love Him.  

His Spirit is holier than our Spirit; His thoughts are higher than ours.  

What more do we need when we already have the Spirit of life? Seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and we can certainly have a better soul and a healthy body. What more do we need when we already have His Spirit in us?
 

Our being will be part of the essential seat of God’s existence that He established in our hearts through the Son Jesus. Our heart is the throne of our kingdom that was transformed when Jesus said that the kingdom is at hand.   

It is a declaration that the kingdom of God, God’s government, is here, and all we have to do is acknowledge and receive it. In Isaiah 11:1-3, the prophet describes the shoot that shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, “The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and understanding, A spirit of counsel and strength, a spirit of knowledge and fear of the Lord, and his delight shall be the fear of the Lord.”

Our human Spirit is the key to experiencing our relationship with Jesus Christ and living a genuinely Christian life not by professing but by confessing our belief and faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, who the Father raised after He completed his mission here on earth, that one day He will rule as King of kings and Lord of lords.

As the Father said that when we believe in Christ, we are redeemed of our sins and receive forgiveness. That being said, we are delivered from God’s eternal judgment, and the joy of everlasting life with Him fulfills His purpose to be with Him.

While we are here at the moment, the kingdom that Jesus announced during his life here on earth replaces the church when the Holy Spirit of God takes over upon our submission and allows Him to live in the deepest part of our being and enjoy our human life until the time comes that the final sanctification and then the glorification will be received. Jesus Christ, Himself, will be the faithful witness.

God will reform our body, and the Holy Spirit will renew our Spirit. The most beautiful thing that makes a thing a thing becomes the most wonderful Person in us. As it is written, “the first man, Adam, became a living soul’; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.” 1Corinthians 15:45.

One, who has believed in Christ, has also believed in His words, His teachings, and His promises, and to believe in Him is also to know Him more, and the more you know Him, the more you involve Him in your daily life.

The Lord Jesus has provided a great answer: our human Spirit.

A Human is a soul with a spirit that gives life and a borrowed vessel called flesh.

The human Spirit is the breath of life, and the Lord can be within us through Spirit.

2 Timothy 4:22 says: “The Lord is with your spirit.”—”God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.”— Genesis 2:7.

God is a Spirit, and definitely when He created Adam in His image and likeness. Adam’s Spirit is the Spirit of God and became the human Spirit when Adam fell from lies and deceit. The Spirit is the breath of life that makes a man a living soul; if not, without the Spirit, the man that God formed remains a three-dimensional image, a trophy with no life and just a statue.

Proverbs 20:27— says, “The spirit of man is the lamp of God.”

“The Spirit of God makes His direct contact to our Spirit, which lies in the deepest part of our being, the holy of holies. “Man’s spirit is his inward organ to contact God, receive God, contain God, and assimilate God into His entire being as his life and everything.” Genesis 2:7—Holy Bible Recovery Version.

It is only by our Spirit that we can make a connection with God. Therefore, our human Spirit is critical to God to be holy. God desires to be with us in perfect holiness because God is perfect, and our imperfection needs more work for improvement through faith at work.

Justification by faith alone and justification by faith without work is dead should not become burdensome. Both will only lead you to get confused. The Bible said to work on your salvation, so do it. Justified but not sanctified is a study that was already explained to me under the process of salvation(http://amazingkingdom.org/salvation-process.html).

Our human life begins with the Spirit of God and not with the soul or the flesh. According to the book of John, two natures of the child of God: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” 3:6
God’s Spirit is Divine means holy and perfect, while human’s Spirit is imperfect, and we need to be regenerated, and the only way is through Jesus Christ; the way the truth and the life, and through Him, we will be a new creation, born from above and once this happened and continues a good work, we may become a new person and a partaker of God’s Divine Nature.

Regeneration is accomplished through the washing of our sin by the blood of our Savior Jesus Christ and to be regenerated is to have eternal life. When we are born of God, that will make us children of God, and our human Spirit becomes God’s Spirit.

We can practice now communicating with the Father and the Son Jesus through our Spirit (emphasizing that our Spirit is at that moment a Spirit) first thing in the morning as we wake up by simply calling their names and saying, “Thank you for the refreshing body and renewed spirit.” It is essential to ask for forgiveness for the day’s sin and do it before bedtime so we start a new day.   

Spiritual breathing through meditation is a good exercise for our souls.  

Please close your eyes and meditate on the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, then set up where you want to be with them.

It could be in a beautiful garden surrounded by beautiful flowers with colorful butterflies flying and friendly bees; it could also be your dream mansion or anywhere your thoughts will lead you to a very inspirational experience.

Start the meditation by inhaling the Spirit of the Father using our nostrils, not mouths, to admit God the Father to come into our senses. Then hold for three seconds and do this with tight lips, so the Spirit inhaled will not leak. At this moment, your thoughts should be with the Father; exhale from the mouth and let the day’s sin pass through, and keep your eyes close while meditating.

2nd inhale the Spirit of the Son using our lips slightly pressed together enough to hold the Spirit for three seconds (if you can’t hold the three seconds, do not do this exercise). Again, we want the mouth closed so the Spirit inhaled will not leak.   

At this moment, your thoughts should be with the Son, and then let the sins pass through by exhaling from the mouth, and that makes the sins of the day wholly washed out

3rd Spiritual breathing exercise. Inhale the Holy Spirit within using our nostrils and not the mouth and hold for three seconds (if you can’t hold the three seconds, do not do this exercise). Do this with both lips slightly pressed together enough to avoid the spirit inhaling will not leak.   

At this moment, your thoughts should be with the Holy Spirit in a welcoming mood, and hold your breath for five seconds only if you can and never force yourself that might give you more harm than good.

Exhale the same way as the first and the second exhalation process.

We must continue the meditation for ten minutes or more as our time permits or end it after the third exercise.   

Do not forget to give thanks to the Holy One. Remember that the Spirit of the Trinity is three people in one Spirit. Once we are one in Spirit with God and the Son, we can communicate with them in the Spirit within us.

As a partaker of the Divine Nature of God, communication in Spirit is the way, not through our emotions, which our souls drive. Therefore, when we pray using the Word of God taken from the Bible, it must be in Spirit, or we may only be making soul recitations that satisfy our feelings.

When you pray in public, avoid too many words that sometimes make the hearers lose their focus on the prayer and their ears turn itchy. We want to keep the Spirit flow and not to be destructed by using almost a vain repetition of the word like, for example, Father God and Lord God. This doesn’t help the listeners to be filled with the Spirit and enjoy the presence of the Holy Spirit; instead, they become burdensome.   
I am saying these things not because I am criticizing the leaders who do these things but to educate them on the proper way of spiritual blessings. Prayer can bless many hearers, and there is no doubt in my mind that we can make them closer to God and enlighten them through the help of the Holy Spirit.  

It is to be loved by God.

We can have all the things in this world, but without God, life can be meaningless, and without God, there will be no one to lean on in times of need. When we are emotionally destructed due to something that surrounds us, like the attitude and behavior of people, we turn to God rather than seeking an emotional solution.

Put the feelings aside and learn to turn intensely to the Father and the Son.   

We are not omitting the Holy Spirit because He is within us that guides us and always acknowledges His presence in our daily life. So when you think about the three persons in the Trinity, think about One Spirit, and we have it.
Our Bible is divided into three parts, and Jesus Christ updated us in the New Covenant, and now we live in the revealed part of the Bible where the Holy Spirit is in charge.

The Old, the New, and the present time are One Spirit, and do not be confused. We only have One True God and no one else.   

We should try to live a divine life and be with God all the days of our lives and let our hunger for His revelation increase daily as we continue to humble and submit ourselves to His wholeness and fullness.

As Jesus Christ, the Son of God, said, after the Father put all His enemies under His feet, He will submit to the Father our LORD, the Almighty God so that the Father will be all in all. Amen.
