I’m going to end this teaching regarding the God-kind of faith by giving you a capsule teaching on spirit, soul, and body which will further explain some of the insights into faith.
God is a Spirit and He’s a triune God – God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three persons make up the God-head – one God, three manifestation/personalities.
John 4:24 (KJV) 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Since we are made in the image of God, we have three parts also.
Genesis 1:26a (KJV) 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV) 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are not just a body and mind. Our spirit is our real self. We have a soul which is our mind, will, and emotions. And we live in a body which encompasses our five physical senses. Our body is our earth suit through which we operate on planet earth.
There are two realms that we deal with: the physical realm where we live and the spirit realm where God operates. The physical realm was created by the spirit realm and is therefore subject to it. That’s why we can change things in the natural realm by using our faith because faith operates in the spirit realm. Faith is the bridge between the spirit realm and the physical realm.
This might seem heavy, heavy, heavy to you if it’s the first time you’ve heard it but that’s how it is. I’ll be referring to this more and more as we go along. In the meantime, read this lesson over and over to better understand spirit, soul and body which is fundamental to walking with the Lord and operating in His faith.
Until next time — Pamela
