Spirit, Soul & Body

If the Bible separates between the spirit, the soul, and the body, then we must differentiate between them too and know that this is important.   I was preaching at one place to a group of ministers and pastors, and I said this sentence, “We have to distinguish between the spirit, the soul and the body so that we can learn how to live by the Spirit …”   So one of the pastors interrupted me and said with a loud voice, “This should not be done. We are made up of the three parts and these cannot be separated from each other.” So I answered him: “if this is what the Bible says, I will agree with you, but the Bible says that we must differentiate and separate the three”. He was not convinced until after reading it from the Bible.   Come and see for yourself the key which after learning it, your spiritual life will change to a level you never imagined, and maybe you have heard of it but you have not yet experienced. Yes you will live the life of rest that God wants you to live. Let’s read the verse: Hebrews 4:11-12 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.   The Bible says that the rest (solution) is obtainable here on earth, by directing our thinking into the Word of God that differentiates between spirit and soul. The Word of God did that which no sword could have ever done, it has separated and differentiated between spirit and soul.   The word “rest” means “solution”, not an anesthetic of reality. You feel comfortable because the problem or issue has a solution, and not to become sedative towards the problem, so after a while you would wake up and find out that it is as it always was. No   My brother, my sister, this is not God … God does not give the ability to endure the problem but He solves it. God does not give drugs but solutions. Therefore he says: “Rejoice, O barren one for you shall bear children” Galatians 4:27, and Isaiah 45: 1.   Be relieved because there is a solution.   After gaining understanding of this, we can replace the word “rest” with the word “solution” … solution for the conflict with sin, solution to illnesses and solution to the difficulty of controlling the thoughts. Solution to any problems in life … Etc.   What is the solution? … It is to differentiate between the spirit, the soul and the body using the word of God that is the only solution.   Let’s see what the difference is:   As believers, we should not take our information from the world and be convinced of it, even if it seems correct for it is incompatible with the Bible. We have to take our information from the Bible because we were not called for failure but for success. But if we follow what the Bible says, we will live and succeed in all aspects of our lives.   Science says: Man is spirit, soul and body. It is as if saying a man is one-third spirit, one third soul, and one third body and all the three make up the human.   This is wrong. Why wrong? Because Scripture says that God is Spirit, John 4:24 … God is Spirit …   God is spirit   God is not a soul. The Soul consists of: thought, passion and will. Of course God has soul but not the same soul we have.   God is not a body. The body is the five senses. Of course God took a body and became in flesh but He himself is not a body.   We humans are created in the image of God Genesis 1: 26-27 “26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion . . . 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”   What is the image of God … God is spirit.   Let us follow up by reading John 4:24 “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” In spirit and in truth i.e. the two are one.   Therefore the truth is that man is 100% spirit and not having one third of his being as spirit.   This does not deny that he possesses a soul and lives in a body.   Example: You are John and you own a car and live in a house. Are you a car?!! No. Are you a house?!! Of course not. You own them, but you are not what you own. You are John and you own these things. The most important thing is John and not the car nor the house. But they are also important, but to a lesser degree than you.   Imagine that the car talked to you one day and said, “I do not want to go there because I do not like that place.” Of course you have control over it, and the car does not. This man that was created by God, works just like God, he is a spirit just as God is spirit. Whether born again or not, he is a spiritual being. His reality is spirit. His being is spirit. Even if you do not feel it but this is your truth. Whether or not you feel this will not diminish this fact. Man is a spiritual being, owns a soul and dwells in a body. . . You are 100% spirit. If we use an equation like that used by science, we will say it as follows: You consist of 100% spirit, 0% soul, and 0% body. Yes, do not look at the mirror while you are stroking your hair, and think you are the one you see. What you see in the mirror is the house you live in. It is not you. Do not also consider the emotions you feel are you, but the self that you own. If you are born of God, then your spirit has the ability to control what belongs to it and that is your soul and your body that your spirit dwells in. 2 Corinthians 5:16 “From now on, therefore, we regard (know) no one according to the flesh …” i.e. “So, from now on, we do not know anyone according to physical knowledge …”   When I say that you are a spiritual being, I do not mean the Holy Spirit but the human spirit. Your own spirit. Your Spirit that is born of God. The Spirit testifies to our spirits, Romans 8:16. Therefore the Holy Spirit is not your spirit. Yes, they have united to become one spirit now. 1 Corinthians 6:17. But I separate between them in my explanation, to make you understand what your spirit is now. Therefore I will talk about the sprit, the soul and the body in more details now.   1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.   Did you know that God wants you to be healthy and whole in spirit, in soul and in body; not only in your soul. This is to be experienced here on earth and not in heaven. This can be by knowing how the three work. Let’s discover who that is from the Word:

  • The spirit (human spirit): This is you, this is your truth. If you look at yourself considering you are only a soul or a body, then you are making a mistake. You would be then walking by sight in the flesh. You must realize that you are a spirit. To realize is to be acquainted of, mindful of, convinced of the reality that you are a spirit.

I did not say that you should feel you are a spirit, for this spirit is hidden from the senses, therefore you (the spirit) are the hidden man of the heart … 1 Peter 3: 4 “but let it be the hidden man of the heart, . . .”, hidden means it is invisible from the five senses. Your five senses are not able to realize or catch signals from the spirit world.   If your body could communicate or catch signals from the spirit world, you would have realized now the thousands of angels that are around you in the room. Yes now. They are there to serve you, but you do not recognize them through your body but you recognize them through your spirit. You also could have realized that God dwells within you now, you will not touch him with your body but communicate with him by your spirit.   2 Corinthians 5: 16-17 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more. 17 Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new.   We do not know God now through our bodies (our five senses). Do you understand that? Because we recognize Him and communicate with Him with our spirits. Paul had known Him before in the flesh; he had lived during the days of Jesus, and when he knew Him according to the flesh he misjudged Him. But later on he knew Him through the spirit and his view was corrected, his life was transformed and so entered into the rest . . . He found the answer.   Let’s complete the reading to find out why we no longer know Him like this anymore:   17 “Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation . . .” “New creation” in Greek means: Another class of people, new type of creatures. This new creature is a son of God, and can communicate with God. It is your spirit and not in your spirit. I say it is you now.   This is perhaps the first time you hear these words, because there are many false teachings that have entered the Church and have not been examined by the believers.   These false teachings say that you are as you are before the second birth and after it, but God has cleansed you and dwelt in you. This is wrong. God has freed you from your old spirit and crucified it (it died) and then He recreated you again. You are now another person … There is an article on the site that talks about this at length, it is called “What happened to you in the second birth”.   Let’s focus on this point “You are a spiritual being”, your spirit is now precious and contains the same abilities of God. You are of a Father who is God and the desires of your Father you will to do. In fact you love communication (prayer) with God. You are born of the Word, you love the Word. Even If you feel the opposite, you have to know who you are. Your spirit is you. Your spirit has the same abilities as God.   Do not trust your senses more than your spirit.   Do you know that your spirit has two hands and two legs, has senses i.e. has two eyes that can see the spirit world, has two ears that can hear the Holy Spirit that is united with you now, has a mouth and a nose. God has made your body to suit your spirit and be the instrument that you the spirit being can use. Your spirit has the same form of your outer body.   You can walk by your spirit and make it dominate and rule over your body. Your spirit is not sinful and has no genes and attributes of sin. It has the genes of righteousness, the genes of God. The desires of your Father you will to do.   The word spirit in Greek means wind or spirit and does not determine whether it is the Holy Spirit or your spirit. Translators often misinterpret the spirit as the soul in the Old Testament, but in the New Testament most of the times when the heart is mentioned it is meant to be the spirit and are often correct.   Heart = spirit   So from now on when you read the Bible you have to distinguish what is being said, since not every time you the word “spirit” is mentioned it means the Holy Spirit. But it often speaks of the human spirit, this new creature your spirit. This becomes evident when reading the whole text and when you read it in the spirit of wisdom and understanding.   Paul often speaks out of his spirit and begins to talk about his body as something else. For example, he says in 1 Corinthians 9:27: “I subdue and enslave (I the spirit) my body … From now on read the Word in this light and you will see how Paul does it by his spirit who is capable of doing so.   Once the Bible says about him “the hidden man of the heart,” and another time “the inner man”. The Heart means the pulp or the deepest thing in your body. More precisely, you are the spirit living in the flesh. Do not forget your origin. You are not a body with a new spirit living in you. Rather speak in the language of the Bible that says you are a spiritual being, living in a body.   Look to the believers also not according to what is seen of the flesh, that is not through the five senses but see them inside within. God looks to the heart; that is to the human spirit, and you like God, do not look at what is seen outwardly but instead look to the heart; to the spirit of man.   This is what Paul or the Holy Spirit through Paul is saying that “I do not regard (recognize) anyone according to the flesh . . .” 2 Corinthians 5:16. So how should I be recognizing him? It is through seeing by my spirit the spirit of that person. For if Paul had looked on the outside of the people, he would have misjudged them and considered them as ordinary people. Because now they are not ordinary, but are now above ordinary, they are now new creatures, and of another kind of human beings. They may be as they look like from outside, but in the inside they are new creatures. The seed of God.   To walk in the spirit means to walk according to your reality. This is the solution that you begin to walk in the spirit. To communicate with the spirit world which you have become part of since you were born again. You do not need to be in it, but what you need is to be aware of it and to know from the word how to use it as you use the visible world for your favor and for the favor of the kingdom of God.   Your spirit is you. And your spirit does not walk by sight but by faith. Therefore Paul says that we, the spirits, walk by faith, not by the five senses. 2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith, not by sight”. . . because we walk by faith not by sight.   Therefore you can communicate with God by faith, not by senses. You will not comprehend God by the senses, but through faith. That is, to realize God and the spirit world by your spirit. This realization will come only from the word of God, which is spirit John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life…”   Start now by reading the word to realize and understand your truth so you can to be spiritual. Only the Word can differentiate between the soul and the body.   Praying in the Spirit i.e. in tongues will help you understand the spirit world better. This is a golden key in the hands of every believer who is baptized in the Holy Spirit.   1 Corinthians 14: 2 “For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit . . .” In Greek it comes: in the Spirit he speaks in secrets. These are secrets to your mind and to the minds of others, but not secrets to your spirit.   You may be surprised to see Hindus heal the sick or walk on fire, because they are the children of Satan and the desires of their father they want to do. This happens by bringing out the evil forces that is in their spirits in cooperation with Satan to do so. This power is not inherent in their souls but in their spirits and they have developed it. Because the spirit of man falls by its same abilities. Just as the angel Lucifer fell by his own abilities.   But glory be to the Lord who has disarmed Satan and paralyzed him.   But He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. We are the original ones. Just as the magicians tried to imitate what Moses did by turning the stick into a snake. But do not forget that Moses’ snake-transformed stick ate all their snake-transformed sticks. Yes, it has devoured them all. Realize how much God made you great in your spirit. He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. The One who in you is greater, stronger, larger and bigger than him who is in the world and that is what came in the Greek of 1 John 4: 4. 1 “John 4:4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”   1 John 5:19 “We know that we are from God..” Yes! you are from God. Trust in that and do not try to feel it. You came out of Him. You (the spirit) have come out of God and are born of God.   You are a spirit so you ought to walk in the spirit and feed your spirit with sound, correct and healthy teachings; you also need to train your spirit to be in the front. Be clothed with the new spirit making it like putting clothes on your outside, i.e. let your spirit be the one confronting the circumstances. Make your spirit prevail over your five senses, that is your body.   Do you know why you find yourself disgusted by this life and fed up of it? Because you do not walk in your truth: “You are like God; you love to walk by faith”. Without faith, you cannot please God. You are also His son and His daughter, you behave like Him; loving what he loves and hating what he hates. Therefore, if God loves faith; you do too.   When you walk by faith, you will find yourself happy, because this pleases you the spirit, and thus you will be walking according to your reality.   Walk by your spiritual eyes and look to the spirit world. This is done through the Word that reveals what is in the spirit world. The more you look at the Word and know more details the more and more the spirit world will be clearer to you.   You will see your blessings and who you are very well. The mirror of the Word shows you your spirit. This way you shall be a veteran and an expert in the spirit world because you are spirit. You will conquer over the devil, and this is what the Lord desires for you. You will be at rest on every side. Yes; you may face problems but you will lead and manage the physical world from the spirit world.   The physical world is present as a result of the spirit world. That’s why you’re dealing with the root of things. The spirit world is more real than the physical world. What you see in the physical world is only a result of what happened in the spirit world, whether it is negative or positive.   – SELF (Mind & Emotion & Will): Proverbs 23:7 “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, says he to you; but his heart is not with you.” The mind is the one who claims and influences the emotion and the will. So if you want to affect your emotion and your will then you have to control and influence your thinking.   Self is something you the spirit being owns. It helps you communicate with the thought world and not the spirit world.   The mind becomes incorrect in its way of thinking because of the information brought into it daily from the world around us. These information enters our minds through the five senses, and are often contradicting to the Bible because the world has been placed in the evil one [the whole world’s system is under the control of the evil one – 1 John 5:19].   Therefore, the mind must be renewed and reprogrammed daily through the correct teaching of the Word of God from these sources:

  1. Reading the Word by yourself in the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation; Ephesians 1: 17-23.
  2. Listening to anointed teachers who preach correct teachings and reading spiritual books written by them.
  3. Interpreting the tongues you pray with where your mind is being unfruitful. 1 Corinthians 14: 13-14.

Meditating on the Word and on correct teaching is not for minutes but it is throughout your day. Let the Word reprogram your mind to taste what you have in Christ in order to truly test the good will of God for you and your family.   The Word is life; it is ideas and principles which are different from the world.   So do not try to add the Word to the ideas and principles you accepted before the second birth or to the ideas you hear daily from the world. No, but allow the Word to reprogram the way you think from scratch.   Yes, begin to give up any views and opinions against the Word. Begin to demolish human thoughts and theories regarding things. Make the word reload the right information into your mind. Do not just think about the word but think of the word. Use it in your thinking and introduce it into your life. Make it the subject of your thinking.   Salvation of the soul is saving it from the ideas and ways of the world. This is the salvation of the soul: to attain the highest level in your faith by saving your soul. It is not the salvation of the souls of others but of yours. This is the origin of the Greek in 1 Peter 1:9 “you have attained the target (goal, outcome, consummation) of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”   Get out of the ways of thinking of your tribe and of your land. I mean the thinking ways of your parents, of your people and of your world. Go out for your own advantage. Genesis 12:1 “Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your land and your tribe and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.” The word “go-out” comes in Hebrew in the preference form that is ‘go out for your advantage”. Do not say: “I was used to that, I grew up on failure thinking and on the mentality of poverty, disease and fear”.   In fact, Jesus did not leave anything He did not redeem you or save you from. Read this about you in 1 Peter 1:18 “You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold,” AMP Bible; your useless life, which does not correspond to what God wants for you. The solution is to get out of your parents’ ways of thinking and sticking to the thought ways of the Word.   The Word is the way to make your soul be in harmony with your new spirit. It makes your spirit bring out the goodness it contains. John 3:21 “But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God”. 1 Timothy 4:15 “Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress.”   Yes, there is something that appears to the public and is inside of you, it is you, your spirit. Therefore do not hinder its emergence and appearance with non-biblical thinking.   Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed [in Greek it means: do not be fashioned after and adapted to] to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.   Do not accept what you are now. If you are like the world defeated, sick and poor, do not accept it. You are invited to receive a blessing as mentioned in 1 Peter 3: 9 “. . . for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.” Romans 8:19 also says you are the solution to the world. Creation awaits your appearing to help it: “the manifestation of the sons of God.”   You are the one who holds the solution for them. There exists a wonderful plan that is designed for you. You have to bring your way of thinking back to zero, and begin to put new principles and surrender the worldly ideas. Also walk with the thoughts of your truth from which you are born, for you are born through the Word.   Just be exposed to the Word and you will be changed completely to become a completely different person. Yes the word “transformed” in Greek is Metamorphoo [metamorfoo] which means pivoting from one state to another completely different one. This Word is now used in science to explain how a cocoon is changed into a worm and then into a butterfly. Each one of these stages shows the butterfly in a completely different shape during its formation.   This is what will happen to you; you will become another person with the correct thinking about matters and not as the world thinks.   Note:

  • The soul is not crucified but renewed: Many people talk about “crucifying the soul” but this is not biblical and was never mentioned in the Bible. What they mean – without them having the right knowledge – is the crucifixion of the desires of the body.

 

  • There are no abilities in the soul. The capabilities are in your spirit. In order to control your thinking, you have to walk in your spirit, which has the power to control thinking.

 

  • You are not called to walk by the soul but by the spirit. By your origin.

 

  • If you pray in tongues, the only one benefiting from praying in tongues is you the spirit; while your mind does not comprehend anything. The mind does not have the right to rule over your spirit, but the opposite is true. The greatest benefit is that your spirit is built and this will make you assured and aware of things by your spirit and not by your mind. This leads you to understand them later by your mind. Because your spirit turns this understanding into thoughts your mind can then understand.

 

  • The body (the five senses): It is the house that you the spirit lives in. It is created to be your home or your outer skin. But many make it a prison for them and not an interesting home. How? By walking by it (led by their five senses) and not by their spirits. You are called to walk by your spirit and not by your body.

The body is not the works of the flesh:   Body: The Five Senses: that is hearing, seeing, tasting, touching and smelling.   Acts of the flesh: is the fruit of walking by the body and having the five senses rule over your spirit.   When your body wants to do something similar to the world, you ‘the spirit’ must subjugate it and crucify it. It is not renewed like the soul. Say to it “no” when it wants something which is not biblical. There is a power in your new spirit to do that. Just walk by your spirit and you’ll find it easy.   Do not feel that sin has authority over you. The problem is not in sin but in your wrong way of thinking. You were convinced and deceived by lies saying: “You are enslaved … you are not free … See you tried so much to stop doing this sin but you could not …”,   You need to meditate on the Word of God to know the truth that you are now completely free from sin and that it has no reign over you. Romans 6:12 “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions … 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.”   Romans 8: 9 “You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit..”   For you to walk according to this verse you ought to know what comes before the words “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body”, i.e. before verse 12, and you will understand how much the Lord Jesus has done for you, He came to give you a victorious life and dominion over your body. Yes, He came for you to enjoy your life on earth and to make the body a pleasant home and not a prison full of quarrelling.   You need knowledge rather than freedom. When you know the truth, this truth will set you free. John 8:32.   You will find this in two articles entitled: “Did you know that the old man has died” and “No problem with sin anymore”.   It will be easy to crucify the body after the renewal of the mind with the correct knowledge and meditation in the Word; where the human spirit and soul are united against the body, facilitating its crucifying, adaptation and acclimatization to what you ‘the spirit’ want; that is fulfilling the desires of your father God.   Do not say: “I am a normal person (or person) and I can be sad, afraid, and weak … This is normal …”. No this is not normal. You are no longer a normal person, but you are a human of a different kind. You are in partnership with God in His nature, He does not weaken nor fear, you are too. This is your spirit, this is you, therefore do not let the body control you but you control it. This is found at length in two articles: “Eternal life is in you now” and “Who is the spiritual human and how to be a spiritual human?”   Do not walk in the body or you will die. Yes, the Bible says that those who walk in the body, i.e., the five senses, will die. Why?

  1. Because your spring of life is no longer from the body, but your spirit. If you do not follow your spirit, you will die, like a fish dies in the air.
  2. Because the body will provide you with wrong information that if you believe it, it will happen to you. So, let your knowledge come from the Bible and walk in what God wants from you,

After the second birth your life stems from your spirit and not from your blood as you were before the second birth. Now you are born of God. Galatians 5:25 and Galatians 2:20.   Romans 8:9 “You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit…”   If you believed your five senses that your disease is deadly, you will really die, but if you believed that you have been healed 2000 years ago you will live. You were healed by the wounds of Jesus. 1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” This verse is about physical healing and it is in the past tense; that means it has already been done. So walk according to it and declare it by your mouth. Choose to believe it and do not see before you anything else except this verse.   For the same Spirit that resurrected Christ dwells in you now. He gives your mortal body life from any disease that may afflict it. Yes, He gives life to your body, and your health grows quickly because of Him. Romans 8:5-11 “5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. 6 For to set the mind on the flesh [Greek is the five senses] is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. 7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. 8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. [because they walk not by faith but according to their senses and God is only pleased by faith] 9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him…”   Complete reading this verse and you shall find the solution to your physical illness also knowing that the Holy Spirit does not dwell in dead believers, but in the living ones, and this is the condition of the verse for this verse does not talk about the resurrection of the dead, but talks about us now ..   10 But if [this is a condition] Christ is in you [This condition does not apply on the dead because God does not dwell in the dead], although the body is dead because of sin [yes sin allows illness to enter the body], the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you [This condition does not apply on the dead because God does not dwell in the dead], he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies [that is prone to death] through his Spirit who dwells in you.”   This is how healing happens it is in not living according to the flesh (relying on the five senses) but living in the Spirit. By this the Holy Spirit will find an opportunity to restore the health lost by sin. The word sin in Greek comes in the sense of guilt as well. When you allow guilt, Satan will enter and find a place for your illness.   O! if believers were to discover what is inside them they would have not lived like this. They will find out that because this is the time when the Church will become without wrinkles.   Use your body as a machine in the hands of your spirit. Use it to work in getting money to invest for the Gospel. Use it to pray in tongues. Use it to teach the Word to others. Use it to lay your hands on the sick so that the power within your spirit is released to heal them.   Romans 6:13-14 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.   The tongue that is in your body: There is an important member in your body that is the tongue that dwells in your mouth. Your mouth is not for eating, but it is for uttering the Word of God; utter it daily over your life and it will occur.   Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue . . .” this is not metaphorical but real. The Word of God is real. It is the truth.   Maybe you’re looking for a way to adjust your troubled life and you are wondering how?   This way is in your body and in your hand, and not in the hand of God. We often hold God accountable for what we ourselves must do.   Where is your life rudder? It is In your mouth … It is your tongue .. James 3: 2 – 5   James 3:2-5 “2 For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body. 3 If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well. 4 Look at the ships also: though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. 5 So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!”   You are called not for a miserable life but to receive blessings. How? By knowing these blessings and uttering them with your tongue.   1 Peter 3:9-10 Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. 10 For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; [Negative talk is evil talk, the Lord said to Moses in Numbers 14:11 “How long will this people dishonor me with their words?”]   Summary:   The soul and the body are used to understanding everything from the moment you wake up, but they are not you, you are a spiritual being, you are a spirit that has a soul and lives in a body.   As well the most important thing is you ‘the spirit’, and the advantages you possess (the soul and the body) are of less importance and they do not control you.   You do many things without understanding them but you do them with conviction and repetition. For example:   You eat meat not because you studied what the piece of meat contains of proteins or vitamins, but because you knew it is important for your health. Whether you have studied or not studied what is inside this piece of meat, you eat it because of the knowledge of one information: “It is useful.” It is really useful and you do not have to understand how it is digested, or how it is spread in your body after digestion. You eat it with confidence that it is useful. Your knowledge or lack of knowledge of its content will not affect your benefit from it. What will affect you is eating it.   Yes you must believe before you see, you should do so. For this is your truth, you are created to walk by faith.   So do not try to walk by faith because walking in faith is your nature.   Walk in your truth. You are a spirit.
