CONCLUSION:  The human soul and spirit is some kind of energy or essence with no physical form that we know
of.  This energy is some how embedded with a person’s brain.  This energy is invisible to the human eye.

The human soul and spirit is the eternal component of a person that is fashioned in the image of God and can
exist apart from the physical body.

Based on scripture, THE SOUL IS THE EMOTIONAL NATURE OF A PERSON.  The inmost being of a person that
feels distress, anxiety, grief, joy, hope, love and praise.

The soul or emotional part of a person can effect the physical body.  For example, if a person looses a loved one
and becomes very sad, chest pains may occur.

In reverse, the physical body can effect the soul.  For example, a handsome or beautiful person may be emotion-
ally confident.  A person who looses a limb may become depressed.

Based on scripture, THE SPIRIT IS THAT PART OF A PERSON THAT CAN COMMUNICATE WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Our spirit knowing the Holy Spirit brings joy, peace, love, and other good character traits to a persons life.  Also,
our spirit knowing the Holy Spirit brings wisdom.  The Holy Spirit can teach and testify to a believer.  THE
HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ULTIMATE SOURCE OF COMFORT TO A PERSONS SOUL.

Most importantly, OUR SPIRIT KNOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT BRINGS SALVATION OR ETERNAL LIFE TO A BE-
LIEVER.  Literally, the Holly Spirit dwells within the believer covering their sinfulness and unrighteous with his
righteousness and holiness.  This allows the believer to enter heaven after this life.

Next week, we will begin “The point of salvation.”  We will look at the history of salvation from before Jesus to
after Jesus and pin point the exact time of salvation in a believer.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

This week, the most important reason our spirit should communicate with the Holy Spirit.

Galations 6:8  … FROM THE SPIRIT WILL REAP ETERNAL LIFE.

John 1:12  Yet to all WHO RECEIVED HIM, to those who believe in his name, he gave the RIGHT TO BECOME
CHILDREN OF GOD.

John 3:5  Jesus answered, I tell you the truth, NO ONE CAN ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD UNLESS HE IS BORN
OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT.

I think you can see where the scriptures are pointing.  Our spirit knowing the Holy Spirit brings ETERNAL LIFE
WITH GOD IN HIS HEAVENLY KINGDOM.  Let’s read more scriptures.

Ephesians 1:13-14  Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, THE PROMISED HOLY SPIRIT WHO IS
A DEPOSIT GUARANTEEING OUR INHERITANCE.

2 Corinthians 1:22  He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put HIS SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS AS A
DEPOSIT, GUARANTEEING WHAT IS TO COME.

2 Thessalonians 2:13  … from the beginning GOD CHOSE YOU TO BE SAVED THROUGH THE SANCTIFYING WORK
OF THE SPIRIT and through belief in the truth.

YOUR SPIRIT KNOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT GUARANTEES YOUR SALVATION OR ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH
GOD.  As believers, the Holy Spirit literally dwells within you.  The person that receives and communicates with
the Holy Spirit receives the righteousness of the Holy Spirit.  Your sinfulness, your unrighteousness is covered by
his righteousness.  You have received your inheritance into heaven.

Next week we will conclude our study on the human soul and spirit.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Welcome.  Last week we read that the human spirit is that part of a human that communicates with the
Holy Spirit.

This week we will read why it is important for the human spirit to communicate with the Holy Spirit.

John 14:27  PEACE I LEAVE YOU;  MY PEACE I GIVE YOU.  I do not give you as the world gives.

Romans 8:6  The mind of a sinful man is death, but THE MIND CONTROLLED BY THE SPIRIT IS LIFE AND PEACE.

Galations 5:22  But the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITH-
FULNESS, GENTLENESS AND SELF CONTROL.

OUR SPIRIT KNOWING THE HOLLY SPIRIT BRINGS PEACE, JOY, LOVE AND OTHER GOOD CHARACTER TRAITS
INTO OUR LIVES.

John 14:26  But the counselor, Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS
AND WILL REMIND YOU of everything I have said to you.

Romans 8:26  In the same way, the SPIRIT HELPS US IN OUR WEAKNESS.  We do not know what we ought to
pray for, but THE SPIRIT HIMSELF INTERCEDES for us with groans that words cannot express.

OUR SPIRIT KNOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT BRINGS WISDOM FROM ABOVE.  THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN TEACH AND
TESTIFY TO A BELIEVER.

ALSO, OUR SPIRIT KNOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT ALLOWS HIM TO CONSOLE US WHEN OUR SOUL IS IN DESPAIR.

Next week, we will read most importantly why our spirit should communicate with the Holy Spirit.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Welcome.  So far we have read that the soul is the emotional part of a person.  Also, the condition of the soul
and body can effect each other.

Let’s now read about the HUMAN SPIRIT.

Hebrews 4:12  For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even
to DIVIDING SOUL AND SPIRIT, JOINT AND MARROW, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

1 Thessalonians 5:23  May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through.  May your whole
SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY be kept blameless at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The previous two versus tell us that THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS SEPARATE (A DIFFERENT ENTITY) FROM THE HUMAN
SOUL AND BODY.

Romans 8:16  The SPIRIT HIMSELF (HOLY SPIRIT) TESTIFIES WITH OUR SPIRIT that we are God’s children.

This scripture tells us that THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS THAT PART OF A PERSON THAT COMMUNICATES WITH THE
HOLY SPIRIT.

To sum up, THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS SEPARATE FROM THE HUMAN SOUL AND BODY.  IT IS THAT PART OF A
HUMAN THAT COMMUNICATES WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Next week we will read why it is important for the human spirit to know and communicate with the Holy Spirit?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Last week we read that the soul is the emotional part of a person.  The inmost eternal part of a person that feels
distress, hope, anxiety, joy, grief, sorrow and praise.

This week, can the body be effected by the emotions or the soul?

Psalms 31:9  Be merciful to me O Lord, for I am in distress;  MY EYES GROW WEAK WITH SORROW, MY SOUL
AND MY BODY WITH GRIEF.

Psalms 63:1  O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;  MY SOUL THIRSTS FOR YOU, MY BODY LONGS FOR
YOU.

Proverbs 16:24  Pleasant words are a honeycomb, SWEET TO THE SOUL AND HEALING TO THE BONES.

Proverbs 4:22  (Gods words, consultation) for they are life to those who find them and HEALTH TO A MANS
WHOLE BODY.

Proverbs 15:30  A cheerful look brings JOY TO THE HEART (SOUL), AND GOOD NEWS GIVES HEALTH TO THE
BONES.

These scriptures tell us that THE THINGS THAT EFFECT THE SOUL CAN ALSO EFFECT THE BODY.  For example,
when the soul is deeply sorrowed or stressed, the body may feel chest pains or headaches.  When the soul is
joyful, chest pains or headaches may disappear.  When the soul is downcast, the body may slump.  When
emotions are good, the body is more upright.

This can also work in reverse.  If the body is tired or sick, it can effect your emotions or soul in a negative way.
When the body feels well, it can effect your emotions or soul in a positive way.

Next week, what is a person’s spirit?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Last week we read that the human soul and spirit is an energy or essence that is embedded within the brain.
Upon death the soul separates from the brain.  This week let’s begin reading about the difference between a
person’s soul and a person’s spirit.

Psalms 6:3  MY SOUL IS IN ANGUISH.  How long, O Lord, how long?

Psalms 42:11  Why are you DOWNCAST, O MY SOUL?  WHY SO DISTURBED WITHIN ME?

Psalms 34:2  I will extol the Lord at all times;  his praise will always be on my lips.  MY SOUL WILL BOAST IN
THE LORD.

Psalms 42:1  As the deer pants for streams of water, SO MY SOUL PANTS FOR YOU, O GOD.  MY SOUL THIRSTS
FOR GOD, for the living God.

Psalms 62:5  Find rest, O my soul, in God alone, MY HOPE COMES FROM HIM.

Psalms 94:19  When ANXIETY WAS GREAT WITHIN ME, YOUR CONSOLATION BROUGHT JOY TO MY SOUL.

Psalms 103:1  Praise the Lord, O my soul;  ALL MY INMOST BEING, PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME.

Isaiah 55:2  Listen, listen to me, eat what is good, and YOUR SOUL WILL DELIGHT IN THE RICHEST OF FARE.

These scriptures tell us that THE SOUL IS THE EMOTIONAL PART OF A PERSON.  THE INMOST BEING OF A PER-
SON THAT FEELS DISTRESS, HOPE, ANXIETY, ANGUISH, JOY, GRIEF, SORROW AND PRAISE.  THE INMOST PART
OF A PERSON THAT MAKES UP THEIR PERSONALITY, THEIR LIKES AND DISLIKES, THEIR FEARS.  IT’S WHAT
MAKES A PERSON DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS.

These scriptures also tell us that GOD IS THE ULTIMATE SOURCE TO COMFORT A PERSON’S EMOTIONS AND SOUL.

Next week, can a person’s body effect their emotions or soul?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Defining the human soul and spirit is very difficult.  I will share my point of view.  If you have a different point
of view or can expand on mine, please express your opinion.

Let’s begin by locating the human soul and spirit.  The soul and spirit is not located within the entire body.  If a
doctor amputates your arm or leg, you still have a consciousness, a soul and spirit.   If a doctor removes your
kidney, you still have a consciousness, a soul and spirit.

The human soul and spirit is some kind of energy or essence with no physical form that we know of.  This
energy is some how embedded with a persons brain.  This energy is also invisible to the human eye.

As best as I can determine, the human soul and spirit is the eternal component of a person that is fashioned in
the very image of God and can exist apart from the physical body.

When a person knows the Messiah, the Holy Spirit dwells within their soul and spirit.  As their human spirit
communicates with the Holy Spirit, they become “born again.”   The following scripture speaks to being
“born again.”  Being born of a new way of thinking, a new way of seeing things.

Romans 12:2  “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing
of your MIND.”

Here, I think the MIND is referring to the human soul/spirit which is different from the brain.  The brain is the
physical.  The mind or soul/spirit is embedded with the human brain and works with the brain in the physical
but separates upon death.

Another thing that happens when a person knows the Messiah and the Holy Spirit dwells within their soul/spirit.
God sees the human soul/spirit as righteous and pure, allowing their human soul/spirit to enter his presence after
physical death.  This is called “salvation.”  At the second coming of Christ, a persons righteous soul/spirit will be
reunited with their spiritual body.  The old sinful body cannot inherit the kingdom of God.  We will study this
more during Revelations.

Next week, we will start defining the difference between the human soul and spirit.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
