Discovering Your *SPIRIT*


We are spirits, who live for a time in a physical body. Yes, we are created in the IMAGE of God, and God is a SPIRIT. In Genesis 1:26“ God said, “Let us make mankind in our (Father, Son, Holy spirit) image, in our likeness.” So, we were FIRST created as a SPIRIT. John 4:24 “God is a Spirit.”

Being born as a human, we receive a soul. This soul is our character, our personality, the uniqueness of who we are. We make human choices according to our soul.

Our soul can be beautiful, kind, endearing, empathetic, thoughtful, and generous. 

OR, our soul can be selfish, self-seeking, disruptive, deceptive, thoughtless, and unkind. 

Our SPIRIT lived - as a SPIRIT in Heaven with God before we were born. Jeremiah 1:5 confirms this, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”

Spirits come to earth to live the life as a human – much like Jesus did. The blood of Jesus was his Father God’s blood, so it was SINLESS, just as Jesus was sinless.

We are different. God knits us together in our mother's womb, but our blood can be that of either parent and because of this, it is sinful.  For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm 139:13).

The reason some babies are born with deformities is due to the parent's blood and DNA.

When we accept God into our life (by free choice) and recognize Jesus as our savor, we make the outward profession of our faith, by being baptized.

Baptism is Physical and Spiritual. Physically we are submerged in water as going into a grave and dying to self.  At this time, our SPIRIT is born anew – in the confession of our acceptance; that Jesus is Lord of our life. We rise UP from the water as if we are born anew. (In human birth a baby comes forth, with a rush of birthing water).

“Jesus answered and said to him, 'Truly, truly, I say to you unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.' John 3:3-7

The second baptism of faith is by fire. John the Baptist said,  "I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one (Jesus) who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and FIRE.”

Acts 2:1-4 “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit (of God) enabled them.

No everyone receives the Gift of Tongues. Many different gifts are given to a believer. READ: 1Corinthians 12. 
To come to Jesus, all you have to do is, -  tell him sincerely that you are sorry for your sins. Then ask him to be the Lord and Saviour of your life.                                                                                                      Find a Bible-believing church, and follow Jesus examples.                                                                           PLUS READ THE BIBLE SO THAT YOU ARE NOT DECIEVED.
