Food For Thought:
My Friends, Remember always, that each one of us, has been created with a soul/spirit within; and that Soul /Spirit Will End up Somewhere, when we die, either in Heaven, or in Hell!
James wrote: “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith
without works is dead also” (Jam. 2:26). Man’s spirit inhabits and
motivates the body. Therefore, the body with the spirit is alive, but
the body without the spirit is dead. Whenever we stand before
an open coffin, we are reminded of this inescapable truth.
The Bible plainly, explicitly, and repeatedly sets forth the
fact of man’s having a spirit within his body. For example:
The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the
Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the
foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man
within him (Zec. 12:1).
Daniel declared, “I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the
midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me” (Dan.
7:15). Paul wrote about the spirit of the Christian, as the “inward
man,” “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward
man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day” (2 Cor.
4:16). While the physical body dies and returns to the dust, the
spirit lives on: “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was:
and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it” (Ecc. 12:7; cf.
1 Cor. 15:50-58; 2 Cor. 4:16-5:10; 1 The. 4:13-18). Jesus warned,
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill
the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul
and body in hell” (Mat. 10:28).
Concerning the continuing existence of man’s spirit, Jesus
spoke of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as yet living, although, centuries
earlier, they had passed from physical life on the earth:
But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not
read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I
am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the
God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of
the living (Mat. 22:31-32).
After death, man’s spirit continues to live in the
hadean (unseen) world. The departed spirit of man maintains
consciousness, identity, and memory in the temporary state of
either rest or torment (Luke 16:19-31). In the hadean abode,
departed spirits await the final judgment to be pronounced
according to the deeds of life (Acts 17:30-31; 2 Cor. 5:10).
Again, our Lord spoke of the eternal nature of man’s
spirit when He pictured this judgment scene (Mat. 25:31-46),
pronouncing the everlasting condemnation of the wicked and
the eternal reward of the righteous. He said, “And these shall
go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life
eternal” (Mat. 25:46).
Therefore, there can be no doubt that man, while he lives
on this earth, has, within his body, a spirit which shall live beyond
the death of the earthly tabernacle in which it temporarily resides.
This spirit, which is of greater worth than the world and all the
things within it (Mat. 16:26), must be born anew (John 3:3-5),
and then continue to grow in order to render faithful service
here and to be readied for entrance into the heavenly home
prepared for the redeemed (John 14:1-4).
In view of this marvelous truth, that man has a spirit within
him that shall live eternally, let us commit ourselves, each day
of our lives, to follow the way that leads to eternal life. As Paul
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue
in them: for in doing this thou shalt both
and them that hear thee. (1 Tim. 4:16).
And Finally My Friends, Remember always that its the Wise Man, that will Increase In Learning and Knowledge, and Its the Fool who despises Knowledge and Wisdom!
For Our Lord Jesus Will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who have chosen Not to Obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. For these will be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, forever!(2 Thess 6-9)
My Friends, Its my prayer for you this day, that you do not allow this to happen to you!
For Remember My Friends, Always, Trust & Obey, for there is know other way, but to just Trust & Obey!
For Remember Always my friends, that you do have a soul/spirit, and it will end up somewhere!
