Man Became a Living Soul

The soul is the body… Man Became a Living Soul

What many people do not know is that the soul is the body.  It is commonly thought the soul is inside the body but the scriptures disagree with such theory.  God wants you to know the truth; that is why He had the scriptures written so we, as well as other generations before and after, can read it and know the truth.

God has a great life planned out for those that fear and love Him and believe on His Christ.  I remember a young lady who told me that we have a soul inside of us that goes back to Heaven upon our death.

This is not a far fetched theory; but look at what the scriptures says and see if there is congruency to such statement, the soul is inside the body.  In Genesis chapter two; God did something very mysterious:

No Breath of Life Leaves a…

7And 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.

(Emphasis mine)

God formed man out of the dust of the ground and breathe life into the man’s nostrils, which was the breath of life, and the man became a living soul.  If we reverse the hands of time before the breath of life, we would come up with the conclusion man would have been a dead soul.

This very scripture means man himself is the soul.  If not, the scripture would have read, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and put a soul inside the man.”

The body and the soul are one in the same; this is why Jesus prayed to God that He would not leave His Soul (body), in hell upon His death.  And consequently, when Jesus rose from the death, His soul was raised not just the spirit.

Not inside the BODY!

    MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL July 20, 2011

    “The body and soul are one and the same.”
    What about Matthew 10:28?

    • That is a good point…we checked on the people who told this particular story…it appears that the soul was used as spirit because it was used differently in other gospels… as in…Luke 12:
      4And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

      5But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

      Here it only refers to the body. The way Bible says that a fact is established by two or more witnesses…Matthew 10 would only be one witness…there are countless more witnesses for the soul being the body rather than separate. Does that make sense Terry?

    Matthew 10:28
    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.

    Ecclesiastes 12:7 after Matthew 10:28.
    I just came across this one.
