Soul Is Eternal
The soul is necessary
for existence of a human being. It is the eternal, nonmaterial
(spiritual) part of a person through which he or she understands,
reflects, feels, and desires.
Spirit properly means
wind or breath. In 2 Thes.2:8 it means "breath," and
in Eccles.8:8 the vital part in man. It also means the rational,
immortal soul by which man is distinguished from animals (Acts
7:59; 1 Cor. 5:5; 1 Cor. 6:20; 1 Cor. 7:34), and the soul in its
distinct state (Heb.12:23). A spirit is also an apparition (Job
4:15; Luke 24:37, 39), an angel (Heb.1:14), and a demon (Luke
In Rom.1:4, 1 Tim.
3:16, 2 Cor. 3:17, 1 Pet.3:18, it indicates the divine nature.
The spirit is also
called the inner man. This is what we will discuss; the soul or
spirit within us. Some people try to separate the soul and spirit
of man. They say that the spirit is the seat of intelligence
with which we reason and understand (Pro.20:27; 1 Cor. 2:11),
and the soul is the seat of our emotions with which we
feel love, hate, joy, sorrow (Heb.10:38; 1 Sam.18:1; Job 14:22).
The body is the seat of our five senses.
1 Thes. 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God
your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto
the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. [KJV] . . . I believe that
the spirit, soul, and body refer not so much to the distinct parts
of a person as to the entire being of a person. I think this is
Paulís way of saying that God must be involved in every
aspect of our lives. We cannot separate our spiritual
lives from everything else. We cannot obey God only in spiritual
ways and live for Him only one day each week. Christ must control
all of us, not just a "religious" part.
For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: (KJV)
. . . Since the believer is under grace, and his will is to desire holiness,
he truly delights in the law of God. Godís Law demands holiness,
and the new man within us, God created in true holiness.
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
(KJV) . . . Strength from the Spirit of God is in the inner man. It
is strength in our soul; the strength of faith, to serve God.
The law of Christ is written in our hearts, and the love of Christ
fills our hearts, because Christ lives there. Where His Spirit
dwells, there He dwells. The love of God in Christ is in our souls!
Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot
offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better
for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having
two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
(KJV) . . . We must remove all stumbling blocks that cause us to sin,
no matter how small. Jesus does not mean to cut off a part of
our body; He means that any person, program, or teaching in the
church that threatens the spiritual growth of the body must be
removed. For the individual, any relationship, practice, or activity
that leads to sin should be stopped. Jesus says it would be better
to go to Heaven with one hand than to Hell with both. Sin affects
more than our hands; it affects our minds and hearts.
And every one that hath forsaken houses,
or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children,
or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and
shall inherit everlasting life. (KJV) . . . Jesus assured
the disciples that anyone who gives up something valuable for
His sake will be repaid many times over in this life, maybe not
in the same form. For example, a person may be rejected by his/her
family for accepting Christ, but he/she will gain a larger family
shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me,
ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his
angels: (KJV) . . . God will separate His obedient followers
from pretenders and unbelievers. The real evidence of our belief
is how we act. To treat all persons as if they are Jesus is no
easy task. But one day there will be a final separation: the souls
of the faithful ones will go to be with Him. The souls of the
wicked (unbelievers) will go to Hell for eternity.
Mat.25:46 And these shall go away into
everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
(KJV) . . . The wicked (unbelievers, hypocrites) will go into
eternal punishment, but the righteous (believers) will go into
3:16 For God so loved the
world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (KJV)
. . . God loved the world (people) so much that He gave us His only
Son, so that EVERYONE who believes in Him will never perish but
have eternal life in Heaven above.
3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting
life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but
the wrath of God abideth on him. (KJV) . . . Everyone who believes
in Godís Son has eternal life. Those who refuse to believe in
the Son will NEVER experience eternal life, for Godís holy wrath
remains upon them.
4:14 But whosoever
drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of
water springing up into everlasting life. (KJV) . . . The water
(Holy Spirit, John 7:39) Jesus gives us takes away all our thirst.
It becomes a endless spring within us, giving us eternal life.
5:24 Verily, verily, I say
unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent
me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation;
but is passed from death unto life. (KJV) . . . All those
who listen to Jesusí Words and believe in God who sent Him have
eternal life. It begins the moment you accept Christ. They will
never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed
from death into life.
6:27 Labour not for the meat
which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting
life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God
the Father sealed. (KJV) . . . We should not be so concerned
about perishable things like food. We should really consider eternal
life that only the Son of Man, can give us. For God the Father
has sent Him for that very purpose.
6:40 And this is the will
of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth
on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at
the last day. (KJV) . . . It is God the Fatherís will
that all who SEE His Son and BELIEVE in Him should have eternal
life, and that Jesus should raise us up at the last day.
6:47 Verily, verily, I say
unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
(KJV) . . . Jesus tells us very clearly: I assure you, anyone who
believes in me already has eternal life.
John 12:50 And I know that his commandment
is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the
Father said unto me, so I speak. (KJV) . . . Our Lord
publicly proclaimed, that EVERY ONE who believed on Him, and was
His TRUR disciple, did not believe on Him only, but on the Father
who sent Him. When we SEE Jesus, the glory of the Father, we learn
to love, obey and trust in Him. We must look to Him daily; this
Saviour who came as a Light into the world, then we are more and
more freed from the darkness of ignorance, sin, and misery. We
learn that the command of God our Saviour is everlasting life.
But on the other hand, all those who despise, reject or neglect
Jesus, will most certainly be condemned to an everlasting Hell.
The soul is eternal and will live in one of two places: Heaven
OR Hell! We are clearly instructed in Godís Word how to achieve
eternal life;. Itís your decision IF you obey or not.
But now being made free from sin, and become servants
to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting
life. (KJV) . . . Since we are free from the power of sin
and have become servants of God, we should do those things that
lead to holiness and result in eternal life.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh
reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the
Spirit reap life everlasting. (KJV) . . . Those who live only to
satisfy their own sinful desires will harvest the consequences
of evil and death. But those who live to please the Spirit will
harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. Again I tell you, the
soul is eternal and will live in ONE of two places: Heaven or
Hell --- your choice!
2 Thes. 1:9
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the
presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; (KJV)
. . . ALL those who reject and refuse Jesus will be punished with everlasting
destruction, FOREVER separated from the Lord and from His glorious
power and all that is good.
2 Thes. 2:16
Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father,
which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation
and good hope through grace, (KJV) . . . Only our Lord Jesus Christ
and God our Father, who loved us and in their special way can
give us everlasting comfort and good hope. Without Christ you
