TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING THE COMPOSITION OF MAN
Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:23 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.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Yesterday we did introduction on the subject of man the most most complex creature that can pursue, overtake and recover all.
Today, in our understanding of man, we shall be looking at the composition of man.
What are the composition of man?
Amongst God’s creations man is the only one that is tripartite! The composition of man is that he is a spirit that has a soul and lives in the body.
1 Thessalonians 5: 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.
So man exist as a spirit that that has a soul that was given a body! The material body was given to operate here on earth! The fact that man has a soul was attested by the Bible:
Genesis 2: 7. 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.
Although some have argued that the spirit of man and his soul are one!
However, I beg to differ on this matter because the spirit of man is what distinguished him from animals. Animals has soul but not spirit. All human beings are spirits that have a soul that lives in a material body.
The soul realm is what psychologist have tried frantically to study yet were kept in amazement of some spiritual behaviour that man exhibit!
This is why the Bible said:
Psalm 139: 14. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Beloved, the first thing to know about your self as a man is that you are a spirit! As a spirit, you are gods on earth.
The Bible said:
Psalm 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
By being gods on earth, you act in God’s capacity on behalf of God! You decide what happens here by allowing some things and disallow some.
The Bible said:
Matthew 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
So, binding and loosing is allowing some things and disallowed some.
This explains why you are fearful! The world of spirits knows you. They know you as a man who can operate in their world as well in this realm of physical world.
You have advantage over the realm of the spirit as well as this physical world. Amongst God’s creations there’s no other creatures with such rare privilege.
Beloved, the reason for attack on your health is to separate your spirit from your body so that you can no longer function in their realm again. All attacks that shows up as sickness and diseases has this target.
Apart from sickness and diseases there are other technology the enemy can deploy to separate the spirit from your body e.g accidents!
However God did not leave us at the mercy of the devil that is why He gave us the Dominion mandate!
Genesis 1: 26. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
With the dominion mandate, we are giving legislative power and this power is exercise in the place of prayer. If you can pray then you can control both realms(spiritual and physical).
If however, you can not pray you will be victims of other people’s activities who are manipulating the spirit realm to their own advantage.
Do you know that the occult man, that nicromancer, that sorcerer, that herbalist are men who have learnt the art of manipulating the spirit realm to their advantage? Refuse to be victims of witchcraft, occultic programming by exercising your authority as the gods on earth.
I speak to believers in Christ Jesus, if you are born again, you are primarily a spirit, words that proceed from your mouth are spirits. You can authorize things to happen in the realm of the spirit!
This explains why when you speak in tongues you are speaking the language of the spirit realm! It is not just a fun to speak in tongues but it is to articulate your spiritual organs of interaction with the realm of the spirit.
In my opinion Speaking in tongues is man’s spirit in collaboration with the Holy Spirit of God having a Koinonia!
The second thing we observed about man’s composition is that he is not just a spirit but also has a soul:
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! The decision of where to spend eternity with God is best made now. Give your heart to Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Father help me to know who I am and my importance on earth in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy you are released from what ever ties down your life on one spot in the name of Jesus
– Received the grace to operate your Dominion licence in the name of Jesus.
