Man, a 3-part being.
Often, people refer to a human being as being made of two parts; body and soul.
For the most part, they are right because the 3rd component cannot be seen, proven, or tested. Nonetheless, it remains the most superior part of man. It can only be accepted by a critical factor called "Faith".
On a Christian aspect, man is a 3-part being, this term is referred to as trichotomy.
Man is composed of Spirit, Soul, and Body.
Apostle Paul said in
1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV
“ 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.”
The apostle is describing humans as a 3 part being and also in Order. Spirit, soul, body.
Why do we call the Spirit of man the Superior part of him?
Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
This is proof of the Spirit being a part of man. God Himself has breathed His life into us. That is how we became "a living being".
In this series, we will discuss the characteristics of each component. Today we will focus on the first faculty of the spirit "communion".
The spirit contains 3 major faculties: Communion, Intuition, and Conscience.
Communion means “ become one with” “united with”. Therefore, one of the attributes of the spirit is to Allow us to be in Communion with God, be united with Him.
Being in communion facilitates worshiping God. That’s why Jesus said to the Samaritan woman
God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
The Spirit helps us pray, He intercedes on our behalf before God, the Father.
In 1 corinthian 14:14
“For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful.”
What this means is that, when you allow your spirit to pray, your mind is inactive, it cannot comprehend the language that is being spoken. Only God can Understand and decipher such a message.
What is the Importance of such prayer you may ask?
Very good question!
There is a story of a man named Daniel, he went fasting before God for 21 days seeking Him concerning the nation. Something interesting happened, at the end of the fast, an angel of God appeared to Daniel and told him His prayers were answered since day one, however, the king of Persia detained him for 21 days. The king of Persia is an evil spirit known as a principality. Place in heavenly realms by Satan as a means to oppose God's will in men.
Sometimes, our prayers have to be encrypted. There are two ways to do so:
Pray in your heart, because only God can see into our hearts.
Pray in the spirit because this language is coded. The evil forces cannot intercept those types of prayer. This may help avoid delays that are not in God’s will. Letting the spirit lead our prayer is very efficient because it prays for what we do not know we need, for protection, and what God wants for us. It is important to start praying in the spirit more and more. I am implementing that in my life as well.
Hear from God.
Being in the Spirit allows you to hear from God. After praying, spend some time in silence so that you may hear from God. So often, we just go and give God a piece of our minds. God, I want such and such. Just like children asking for toys, but we rarely take the time to say, Lord, what do you want? What is it about me that you do not like and how can I do better? I promise if you keep it real with God, he will tell you straight up!
Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
This is what Jesus said to the Jews that were trying to kill him. As harsh as it sounds, it is true. If you do not hear from God, you are not of God. However, you can become one with God by accepting His Son Jesus Christ who is the road, the truth, and life.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
It is critical to get to know God’s Voice. If you cannot hear from Him, repent and ask Him to pour out His Spirit onto you, for it is through His Spirit He communicates with us.
If you have not yet decided to Give your Life to Jesus Christ, Now would be a good time because the wage of sin is death and whoever does not know Jesus will not be saved.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Jesus died on the cross for you, so that you may not die and have everlasting life. Do not let His sacrifice be in vain. If you so choose to accept Jesus as your Lord and savior. Please send a text to 786-657-6458. This number is also registered on WhatsApp for your convenience.
With your name and the message “ The Blood of Jesus”.
God Bless, please stay tuned for another post of the other faculties of the Spirit.
Today we focused on communion, we have Intuition next, followed by Conscience. Stay tuned. God Loves you.
