Do We Have A Soul? Part 1

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7

The book of Genesis makes a revelation that humanity has tried to understand for centuries. What are we or who are we? Are we just matter or is there more to our physical bodies? God tells us when he created Adam and he formed his physical body from the dust. Then be breathed his Spirit into the body which became Adams soul

God specifically tells us we have a living soul. Yet many people today, even some Christians reject the idea of a soul. Think about this , if we are just physical bodies, then where does your emotions and memories come from? They would be just chemical reactions , molecules in motion, nothing more. Because we love, we know we have a soul. Because a physical piece of meat cant love anything , unless it has the capacity to love

The original Hebrew word translated as “Soul” is “nephesh” which is found 754 times in the Old Testament also translated as “Being”, “Life”, and “Person” and “Creature” This Nehesh is obviously a “Life Force” derived directly from God

The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life. Job 33:4

Job recounts the same thing, God formed him and Gods Spirit or Breathe (Rauch) has given him Life

But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. Job 32:8

Here again Job says God put a Spirit or Soul into man (humans) and it gives them understanding. Remember I said before if we are just physical bodies, what understanding would we have of love or emotional things? Without a soul this would not be possible

Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: Isaiah 42:5

The prophet Isaiah says the same thing, God gives his “Rauch” Breathe or Spirit into the people. The original Hebrew word “Neshamah” is used here not only meaning Breath and Spirit, but also means intellect. Again without a Living Soul there would be no intellect in our physical bodies

    Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Genesis 1:26
    Simply stated, the human soul is the part of a person that is not physical.The soul is an imperishable thing! 🙂

    Shalom bro! ❤
