SOULED OUT

OBSERVATION: THIS STUDY ADDRESSES THE SOUL OF MAN IN RELATIONSHIP TO A CHRISTIAN’S WALK.

INTERPRETATION: THE FIRST REFERENCE TO THE TERM “SOUL” IS FOUND IN GENESIS 2:7 (NKJV) AND THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND, AND BREATHED INTO HIS NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE; AND MAN BECAME A LIVING BEING.

POINTS TO PONDER:

GOD FORMED MAN IN THREE PARTS, BODY, SPIRIT AND SOUL.

HEBREWS 4:12: (NKJV) FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS LIVING AND POWERFUL, AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD, PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVISION OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, AND OF JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART.

THE SOUL AND THE SPIRIT ARE CONNECTED, BUT SEPARABLE. THE SOUL IS THE ESSENCE OF HUMANITY’S BEING; IT IS WHO WE ARE. THE SPIRIT IS THE ASPECT OF HUMANITY THAT CONNECTS WITH GOD. (ANTHONY HOEKEMA)

THE TERM ‘SOUL” CONVEYS MEANINGS SUCH AS SELF, PERSON HIMSELF, MIND, SEAT OF EMOTION, APPETITES, PASSION AND WILL.

UNFORTUNATELY, MANY BELIEVERS OPERATE MORE IN THEIR SOUL THAN THEY DO IN THEIR SPIRIT. THE SOUL IS WHAT YOU THINK, WHAT YOU DO, WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT MOST AND YOUR OPINION. THE SCRIPTURE DEFINES THIS AS A “CARNAL CHRISTIAN”.

THE TWO EDGED SWORD, THE WORD OF GOD (HEBREWS 4:12) CAN QUICKLY DIVIDE THE SOUL PART OF MAN FROM THE SPIRIT PART OF MAN. THIS OPENS UP SPIRITUAL INSIGHT INTO HIS WORD!

THIS SEPARATION LETS YOU SEE GOD HAS WILL FOR YOUR LIFE AND ENABLES YOU TO WALK TRULY IN THE SPIRIT!

APPLICATION: BELIEVER, OPERATE IN THE SPIRIT REALM. GOD IS A SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH (JOHN 4:24).
