Soul or Spirit?

Understanding Spirituality in discipleship to Jesus Christ, will always be conducive to the Bible.

The functions of the Holy Spirit is rooted to the human spirit in conscience and intuition; whereas the soul is rooted to the emotions and intellect of the mind. Without a clear understanding of the scriptures, people often confuse “emotional intelligence” with the intuition of the Holy Spirit’s leadings as exemplified in the Bible. This is an “all to common mistake” made within the Christians development.

The Holy Spirit functions to show the believer just who the Lord is in Christ, by experience and personal revelations which are comparable to Jesus, Mathew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, and other early believers in the New Testament, who received the Holy Spirit on and after the day of Pentecost.

The Old Testament Saints are used in example to men’s hearts towards the Lord; if they be soft or hardened, while siting how obedience in faith was required in receiving the promises of the Lord.

David was an outstanding example of continued repentance of heart towards the Lord, and the infinite mercy shown to him.

The “Lamb of God” – Jesus Christ was the promised one (Messiah) first to the Jew, then to the Gentiles, who took away the sins of the world on a cross to all who would believe on him!

The law was given to Moses as an example of a school master – a measuring stick, to show how Holy the Lord God is, and how utterly hopeless humanity is in keeping even one aspect of the law within the hearts of men!      As an example; this is why adultery was used by Jesus in explaining even if a man didn’t engage in the physical act (like under the law of Moses) the human heart is still corrupted by sin, and even our thought life needs forgiveness!

Anyone who believes that apart from Christ, they can conform or perform to the Spirituality required to commune with the Father, has completely misunderstood the scriptural texts as to who Christ is, and the utter depravity of humanity!

The bottom line is that it is impossible to move in Holiness apart from the Spiritual connection to the Holy Spirit as for the atonement of Christ, and nothing less!

Paul said in Hebrew 6:1 “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,”

Paul understood that the atonement of Christ has already been made complete in Christ for the believer by faith, which is the “Doctrine of Christ”.  It is imperative for our understanding and growth that we grasp this doctrine fully.

He is speaking of the total depravity of man, and the tremendous cost paid for our sinful souls by Christ on the cross!

Without a complete understanding of this “sound” doctrine, we could end up like a bunch of Monks once did, while attempting to continually move in Holiness within in the dark ages from 5th–15th century – prior to the reformation! Legalism is always the result from the Scribes of old to the present age, if our minds cannot grasp the infinite grace and mercy shown to us by the completed work of Christ on the cross!

It is ironic how sound Biblical teachings of who Christ is to the believer spiritually, can be twisted by the mind and soul into a convoluted understanding of the New Testament Gospel as being soulish rather than spiritual, when confusing the emotional intelligence of the soul with the actual spiritual life, which once and for all was provided and completed for us in Christ Jesus.

One thing which I can testify to is that my life is not my own since coming to the Lord! Providentially, although I attempted to plan for my life, it is the Lord who allowed or disallowed how I attempted to move forward. A major example of this is how I tried to go to sea with the Merchant Marine after my time in the Coast Guard.

My application continually became ensnared within the hiring administration of the Military Sealift Command again and again, till I finally gave up and moved in the direction of obtaining a job as a Marine Machinery technician aboard Army watercraft instead. One of the reasons for this is that I would meet my future wife (who I had prayed for 20 years) and direct her towards Christ for her salvation.

It was not me who chose any of my life’s course, but rather Christ within me, and in whom the Father offered me my bride in 1997. Yet only after a years’ worth of confirmations (almost daily) to my soul of what the Lord had indeed orchestrated. It was the most transformative time in all my Christian walk!

I can still remember where I was standing on the day the Lord spoke to my heart proclaiming that “my life was in his hands”! What a joyous “Spirit filled moment” that was for my soul; and is one which has proven itself again and again even to the point of my own death, and afterwards when being accused of  loving the world more than the Lord, by some poor doctrinally confused brethren.

The main thrust of my point is; that understanding sound doctrine is imperative to ones emotional and spiritual health, even when the Lord has moved from within you by his spirit in giving significant understanding to our souls of just who we are, and the grace given to us freely in Christ by Grace, and not of our own merit!

Things the Bible Says We’ll Lose in the Last Days (link)

Apr 23, 2020

Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker talks about the things the world will lose in the last days according to the Bible. NOTE: I erroneously said that there were 250,000 killed world-wide by the CoronaVirus. That figure was a little high. As of 4/23/2020 the actual figure was: 190,788. So, I wanted to make sure I gave the actual figure as of the date I posted this video.

Out of Touch?

Poor Bible understanding of Isaiah and other scriptures create such fervent and even desperation in proving oneself worthy! Yet Christ is the only justification; for all to come to a saving faith in him. When Israel rejected Christ, then the Gospel went out to the Gentiles for salvation for those who put their faith in him. (Matthew 7:13-14).



Romans 9:27–28 (ESV): 27 And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved, 28 for the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth fully and without delay.”

Romans 11 – * referencing Isaiah

That Israel has not been forever set aside is the theme of this chapter.

(1) The salvation of Paul proves that there is still a remnant ( Romans 11:1 )

(2) The doctrine of the remnant proves it ( Romans 11:2-6 ).

(3) The present national unbelief was foreseen ( Romans 11:7-10 ).

(4) Israel’s unbelief is the Gentile opportunity ( Romans 11:11-25 ).

(5) Israel is judicially broken off from the good olive tree, Christ ( Romans 11:17-22 ).

(6) They are to be grafted in again ( Romans 11:23 Romans 11:24 ).

(7) The promised Deliverer will come out of Zion and the nation will be saved ( Romans 11:25-29 ). That the Christian now inherits the distinctive Jewish promises is not taught in Scripture. The Christian is of the heavenly seed of Abraham ; Genesis 15:5 Genesis 15:6 ; Galatians 3:29 and partakes of the spiritual blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant.

Life Shifted

Beautifully said G.W. , and most true! The only thing I might add is that immediately when my heart stopped the Lord was with me! Dying alone (without Christ) would have been the worst experience of my life, however with Christ it is NO BIG DEAL; I worried more about my wife, and completing my mission on earth, than myself! It was a feeling of freedom with perfect clarity of mind and vision which I had (looking down) ; but still the desire for those left behind was present within me. Suffering is apart of life, yet most wish to hold on, but often it takes more courage to fight to live than to die.  I think this is because death is still unnatural to how we were created! Wishing a long prosperous life to all, yet it is all just temporary – I once saw as a bumper sticker to an old man’s pickup!

His eye is on the sparrow


The confinement of enforced social distancing due to the latest world plague is a hardship passing. However, as life experiences go, it is not the most considerable difficulty I have known – up to this point. Admittedly, this is my personal experience of the current circumstances. Others have lost loved ones to this sickness, and those departed lost their very lives. Still increasingly more may know additional loss as no sure cure has been discovered of yet.

The standard world each of us had known suddenly moved, as the slow turning of view inside a kaleidoscope. A deep tectonic plate shifted the way life in this world is interpreted behind the eyes of the beholder.

But strangely enough, nothing has really changed except current events. The typical state of the world has always been one of these continual changes. New life coming as another breath departs has been the…

“Mark Twain” (Samuel Clemens) once said: “Lies, damned lies, and statistics”
A phrase describing the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics to bolster weak arguments. It is also sometimes colloquially used to doubt statistics used to prove an opponent’s point.

So, the believer must learn to yield to the Lord “in all things” when coming to a knowledge of the Truth! The “world” hasn’t this ability; yet the genuine believer has been given this ability to see in Christ!

The Righteous Live by FAITH – Not by sight. In other words, what you believe does not affect the indwelling work of the Holy Spirit within you. Remember, we are God’s work, and not our own, once we have been sealed for the day of redemption!

Experts Fear China “Weaponizing” Pharmaceuticals Sold To U.S.

As a Retired Military man, I’ve read allot on this possibility, if you notice the World Trade World Health Organizations and some others (globalists), seem to be subservient to the Chinese Communist Party money. This is no accident, the idea was if China could not beat the U.S. Militarily, other means needed to be developed. The CCP doesn’t give a hang who they hurt as long as they stay in power! The Wuhan level 4 Bio Lab had bragged about this development – then it got loose…

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

I was researching today about the percentage of pharmaceuticals and OTC pain relievers for which the U.S. depends upon China. That number hovers around 97%. 

Pretty alarming – wouldn’t you say?

As I was researching various websites about this problem, I happened upon an article which was written during the time when Covid-19 was killing Chinese citizens, but the Communist government covered this up.

The article about pharmaceuticals from China was written on 12/20/2019.

A whistle blower from Wuhan, China who desperately wanted to alert the nations of the world that Corona virus was transmitting from person to person (Dr.Li Wenliang) was pronounced dead, then alive and then finally dead by the government of China. Most people believe that Dr. Wenliang was murdered for his attempt to warn the world of what was really happening.

Look at these pictures.  The first one is of the doctor when he was treating…

Stiff Necked

Oswald Chambers teaches on his April 7th devotional the following quote…

As the disciples were commanded, you should also say nothing until the Son of Man has risen in you— until the life of the risen Christ so dominates you that you truly understand what He taught while here on earth. When you grow and develop the right condition inwardly, the words Jesus spoke become so clear that you are amazed you did not grasp them before. In fact, you were not able to understand them before because you had not yet developed the proper spiritual condition to deal with them.

Our Lord doesn’t hide these things from us, but we are not prepared to receive them until we are in the right condition in our spiritual life. Jesus said, “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now” (John 16:12). We must have a oneness with His risen life before we are prepared to bear any particular truth from Him. Do we really know anything about the indwelling of the risen life of Jesus? The evidence that we do is that His Word is becoming understandable to us. God cannot reveal anything to us if we don’t have His Spirit. And our own unyielding and headstrong opinions will effectively prevent God from revealing anything to us. But our insensible thinking will end immediately once His resurrection life has its way with us.

“…tell no one….” But so many people do tell what they saw on the Mount of Transfiguration— their mountaintop experience. They have seen a vision and they testify to it, but there is no connection between what they say and how they live. Their lives don’t add up because the Son of Man has not yet risen in them. How long will it be before His resurrection life is formed and evident in you and in me?

It is headstrong and hypocritical to say that; others use the Bible to teach what they want, yet you yourself do the very same thing! (Romans 2:1-5)

How tragic to think that you are so spiritually spot on in your understanding, that you simply discard the discernment of others who have tried to share with you.

It is frustrating and almost laughable when we see a Bible study leader who “thinks” that they are so “very exclusively sanctified” in Christ; that no one else can move their heart towards seeing God move, beyond anything bigger than their own Cognitive Dissonance!

This is not Spirituality at all, but simply stubbornness and bull headed when even the closest of brethren are powerless to help, until one repents from such a comfortable yet prideful position of the mind, the one who is so blinded in their own conceits!  (Proverbs 26:12), (Romans 12:16)

Completed in Christ


The Great Seporation

The above Graphic has been changed as the idea that Sheol, Hades, (the place of death or sleep) known as Abraham’s Bosom – for the Old Testament Saints no longer exists today as for waiting for the Savior *Messiah and Redeemer. As He Has Risen from the Dead; Jesus Christ 3 days and nights after his Crucifixion on the Cross of Calvary. He descended to the “Bowls of the Earth” then ascended to the right hand of the Father. Not only was Christ resurrection witnessed on that day, but all the Old Testament Saints were resurrected as well!

Isaiah speaks about Hell being “expanded” to receive the masses of people who were not saved from sin.

It is likely that Hell now included Hades, and the great chasm which separated the Old Testament Saints in Paradise. 

The idea that Hades still exists as a receptacle for those who died without Christ, and that Hell is for the “Broad Roader” (who once came to a Saving faith, then leaves their Salvation in Christ) is unbiblical, and simply cannot be supported by scriptural texts when taken in the context of both the Old or New Testaments.

Poor understanding of the scriptures often results in a “customization of them”, in support of a particular doctrine. To me this is Heretical to hold and to teach such doctrines *with the full knowledge of scriptural texts which invalidates such doctrines, and therefore deceives many.

Personally, I have found that anything which detracts from the Lord Jesus Christ, his burial and resurrection from the dead as the Son of the Living God (God Man) and ascension into heaven at the right hand of the Father, is a dangerous president to preach against the totality of the completed work of Christ done on the cross.
