Everything God starts and does begins in the spiritual. The spirit is more real than the natural. The spirit is eternal; the natrual is temporal. Your natural cannot comprehend God.
Worship == Worth
“But a time is coming and is already here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers.” John 4:23
Your natural cannot assign worth to God, your spiritual can. God measures by the spirit not the natural.
“Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.” Genesis 1:3
When God speaks it transforms from preexisting in the spiritual to existing in the natural.
God cannot lie
Though it is not in His nature, it is not within His power. The nature of God prevents and precludes Him from forming any lie. When God speaks, whatever He says, is. If a thing has a particular property that seems set or constant, its property instantly changes to what He declares it is.
Your body is a container God made to temporarily house your soul which He created. After making your body, He placed your created soul within.
- To make is a reformation of original material in to a new material.
- To create is to generate something out of nothing.
You are a spirit, which possesses a soul, contained within a body.
God speaks to you and releases His word to your spirit. God always speaks invisible before it becomes visible. When God speaks, it is what He knows. The Word has to traverse through what you think.
Then he answered me, “This is the word of Adonai to Z’rubavel: ‘Not by force, and not by power, but by my Spirit,’ says Adonai-Tzva’ot. Zechariah 4:6
God prefers to use you in spite of you. God sees beyond the smell on you.
Your soul doesn’t possess you; you possess your soul. Your soul is where your emotions lay. Your emotions do not possess you, you possess them. No one can make you angry, sad, depressed, or otherwise emotional. They can evoke a feeling in you which you choose to act upon. You cannot prevent things from being thought, you can prevent thoughts from dwelling within your mind. Your flesh/body is where you’re world conscious.
Spirit == God conscious
Soul == mind conscious
Flesh == world conscious
For I know what plans I have in mind for you,’ says Adonai, ‘plans for well-being, not for bad things; so that you can have hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
In other words, do not let yourselves be conformed to the standards of the ‘olam hazeh. Instead, keep letting yourselves be transformed by the renewing of your minds; so that you will know what God wants and will agree that what he wants is good, satisfying and able to succeed. Romans 12:2
Everything you’ve experienced tries to dictate what you believe and think. Your soul is in the middle of a tug-of-war between what you think, what you’ve experienced, and what God knows.
