My purpose right now, is to help people understand they are 3 people. If people can get a handle on this, they will understand the Godhead (aka Trinity) and they will understand how God made them 3 in 1, too. Why is this important? Let me ask you a few questions:
1. What happens to your mind/soul when you die?
2. Does Satan attack your spirit, soul or body?
Some people mix scripture together and get all mixed up and confused when the scriptures are clear and understandable. Because the word of God is alive, it has several layers of applications. Baptism is showing the old you died and was buried and you are raised in newness of life. You still have the same ” flesh ” before baptism as you do after baptism. It’s not about your flesh in Christ. Your flesh is only a vessel to provide a way for your soul and spirit to accomplish things in this “natural” realm. 1 Corinthians 2:14,15 KJV
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.”
When you really, really understand the differences between your spirit, soul and body, scripture comes to life. Okay, you need some samples right?
Romans 8:16 – the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit – not our mind not our flesh but our spirit.
Colossians 3:2 – Set your affections on things above not on things on the earth. Affections are a soul attribute. Your soul is your mind, will and emotions. It does not say, set your flesh on heaven or your spirit, but your soul.
Ephesians 6:12 We wrestle not against flesh & blood but powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness.
What is amazing is when Paul teaches the church, he addresses our flesh, our soul and our spirit.
I tried to put a diagram together to present this in a picture. If you can start to look at things from a point of – does this affect my spirit, my soul or my flesh, you will have great revelation of God’s word. God sees your heart and soul but man only sees your flesh, your outward person. Unlock the Scriptures by looking at what you is God talking to.
