The Soul

Months ago during a discuss with a Rabbi. I was asked: ” Can you define what you mean by the word soul? You envision the soul being alive, being damaged, and dying.” Yes, I can. First, the Soul is the SPIRIT of GOD in the dirt. Second, I do. Who can kill the SPIRIT of GOD in the flesh, You and GOD.

The Evidence:

Soul is first referred to in Genesis 2:7 Then the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Now I follow the Law, on the witness of two or more you shall know the truth. The second place is as important that the first. Let’s take a look: Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said: ‘My spirit shall not abide in man forever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.’

The Spirit of GOD placed in the dirt(flesh), became a living Soul. A soul that is not of this earth nor even this universe, but from the Creator of ALL hence a spark of GOD in every person.(Could this be “The IMAGE” is spoken of in Genesis 1:26 And God said: ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, . . . .’?) Created as a ONE, not a pair, required in the simplest form, to choose to be  –For GOD(Father) or Against. Each action of a person is recorded by that soul.

As a minuscule part of the CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, expected to perform choices, GOD always knows what is happening. HE may choose to NOT HEAR than which is bad. Only you and NO ONE ELSE can damage your soul (take actions against GOD or SIN = blotted out of the book) Only the CREATOR can remove the marks(forgiveness is only the first step, to be Righteous and put in the book{Those Belonging to GOD}.)

Not even Moses could gain forgiveness by offering his name to be removed from the book the GOD is keeping. Exodus 32:32 Yet now, if Thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray Thee, out of Thy book which Thou hast written. Exodus 32:33 And the LORD said unto Moses: ‘Whosoever hath sinned against Me, him will I blot out of My book.’

[Witness of TWO: {Jeremiah 15:1 Then said the LORD unto me: ‘Though Moses and Samuel stood before Me, yet My mind could not be toward this people; cast them out of My sight, and let them go forth.;} THREE: {Ezekiel 14:12 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying: 13 ‘Son of man, when a land sinneth against Me by trespassing grievously, and I stretch out My hand upon it, and break the staff of the bread thereof, and send famine upon it, and cut off from it man and beast; 14 though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.}; FOUR:{Ezekiel 14:19 Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out My fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast; 20 though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.}  So what do you need to be: Righteous(+) not forgiven(0)!]

Example of GOD putting away sin: “2 Samuel 12:13 And David said unto Nathan: ‘I have sinned against the LORD.’ {S}And Nathan said unto David: ‘The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. 14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast greatly blasphemed the enemies of the LORD, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.’ ”

The LORD’S Offer one time to put away the sin of more than one soul: (Jeremiah 5:1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that doeth justly, that seeketh truth; and I will pardon her.) None were found.

Remember: Forgiveness or the putting away of your sin does not make you Righteous.

Ezekiel 18: 4 “Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine; the soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (This is hard for many to accept, and yet, the next quote is the LORD’s compassion) 23 “Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD; and not rather that he should return from his ways, and live?” I Suggested reading all of Ezekiel 18.

Jeremiah 17:21 thus saith the LORD: Take heed for the sake of your souls,

In Numbers 16:33 “So they, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit; and the earth closed upon them, and they perished from among the assembly. (Alive they went down — meaning that normally you go there dead.) The death of the Soul is what the ALMIGHTY is concerned about. What are you concerned about?

Ezekiel 37:4 Then He said unto me: ‘Prophesy over these bones, and say unto them: O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD:(Life for the body or the soul is in HIS HANDS. Only you can damage your soul, only the ALMIGHTY can clean it. )

Our misunderstandings are MANY with regards to the Writings of Moses, a.k.a. TORAH. For example death we view as being of the body, while the LORD speaks of the soul being dead(Important to GOD) as with this passage which contains the first sin and the soul marked for death, (The rule #1: Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.’ AND YET Genesis 3:17 And unto Adam He said: ‘Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying: Thou shalt not eat of it; cursed is the ground for thy sake; in toil shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.(Adam and Eve’s bodies did not die. MY GOD does not lie, the SOUL was marked for death and even the serpent knew of our misunderstanding and beguiled Eve with the statement Gen. 3:4…Ye shall not surely die.

The italic portion is to draw your attention to the Name of the Tree, hence what is this tree to teach? This is another major misunderstanding.

We, you and I plus Adam, Eve and every human that was ever on this earth have a soul(HIS SPIRIT) from the ALMIGHTY and a body from the dirt(Flesh). The dirt is simply a transport device given challenges, teachings, tests, more opportunities to learn and grow stronger for our soul. Yet, we are never given more than we are able to handle.

You have a soul, a piece from the ALMIGHTY, not created, this was formed in HIS Image.
All of this was created, the universe, so that, you and I have the opportunity to choose GOD or not, and thereby LIVE or die. Know that the SPIRIT OF THE ALMIGHTY is within YOU.

You must choose by your actions and deeds, to be HIS CHILD and HE YOUR FATHER but you must Diligently heed HIS WORDS, LAWS, and TEACHINGS or not.

This is not a difficult thing if you want to be HIS, however, the stream of people flow much easier toward evil, seeking a moment of questionable pleasure thereby giving up all that you would be as one of HIS OWN.

You have a soul, in an amount of  Spirit Of The LORD, which is worth more than you can grasp to the LORD and to your future. What you do, is on your soul and determines your reward from your CREATOR. If you sin, you can make it right, but you must admit your errors, seek HIS forgiveness and strive to be Righteous. Ask for help so that you don’t fail again, you can do it.

Last proof text to encourage you. “Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine; 6 and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.’”

Lest you consider this to be only for the Children of Israel;

Exodus 12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land; but no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. 49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.’

[On the Witness of Two or More]

Isaiah 56:6 Also the aliens, that join themselves to the LORD, to minister unto Him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be His servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and holdeth fast by My covenant: 7 Even them will I bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer; their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices shall be acceptable upon Mine altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.

So it is truly your choice. – 0 + ?
