I will pause here so I can explain briefly, the three parts of man – for a complete teaching on it, click here and go to page 6 of my teaching, “What Is Hindering Your Healing?” The teaching, “Three Parts of Man” is on pages 6-17.
- Spirit: Our spirit man is who we really are, it is who God made us to be. Job 32:8 says, “But there is [a vital force and] a spirit [of intelligence] in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding” (biblegateway.com – AMP). God is a Spirit, we are made in His image and likeness, therefore we are a spirit first and God communicates with us through our spirit man, not through our soul or bodies – God does not live in these realms (soulish or physical). It is the spirit man in us that is reborn when we accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, not the body or soul (2 Corinthians 5:17; John 3:1-21) – this rebirth takes place in our human spirit. Apostle Paul lets us know in 1 Corinthians 15:50 that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God.
