Soul Is Eternal
soul is necessary for existence of a human
being. It is the eternal, nonmaterial (spiritual)
part of a person through which he or she
understands, reflects, feels, and desires.
properly means wind or breath. In 2 Thes.2:8
it means "breath," and in Eccles.8:8
the vital part in man. It also means the
rational, immortal soul by which man is
distinguished from animals (Acts 7:59; 1
Cor. 5:5; 1 Cor. 6:20; 1 Cor. 7:34), and
the soul in its distinct state (Heb.12:23).
A spirit is also an apparition (Job 4:15;
Luke 24:37, 39), an angel (Heb.1:14), and
a demon (Luke 4:36; 10:20).
Rom.1:4, 1 Tim. 3:16, 2 Cor. 3:17, 1 Pet.3:18,
it indicates the divine nature.
spirit is also called the inner man. This
is what we will discuss; the soul or spirit
within us. Some people try to separate the
soul and spirit of man. They say that the spirit is the seat of intelligence
with which we reason and understand (Pro.20:27;
1 Cor. 2:11), and the soul is the
seat of our emotions with which we feel
love, hate, joy, sorrow (Heb.10:38; 1 Sam.18:1;
Job 14:22). The body is the seat
of our five senses. 1 Thes. 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.
[KJV] I believe that the spirit, soul, and
body refer not so much to the distinct parts
of a person as to the entire being of a
person. I think this is Paul’s way of saying
that God must be involved in every
aspect of our lives. We cannot
separate our spiritual lives from everything
else. We cannot obey God only in spiritual
ways and live for Him only one day each
week. Christ must control all of us, not
just a "religious" part.
Rom.7:22 For I delight in the law of God after
the inward man: (KJV) Since the believer
is under grace, and his will is to desire
holiness, he truly delights in the law of
God. God’s Law demands holiness, and the
new man within us, God created in true holiness.
3:16 That he would grant you,
according to the riches of his glory, to
be strengthened with might by his Spirit
in the inner man; (KJV) Strength from
the Spirit of God is in the inner man. It
is strength in our soul; the strength of
faith, to serve God. The law of Christ is
written in our hearts, and the love of Christ
fills our hearts, because Christ lives there.
Where His Spirit dwells, there He dwells.
The love of God in Christ is in our souls!
Mat.18:8 Wherefore if
thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them
off, and cast them from thee: it is better
for thee to enter into life halt or maimed,
rather than having two hands or two feet
to be cast into everlasting fire. (KJV) We must remove all stumbling blocks
that cause us to sin, no matter how small.
Jesus does not mean to cut off a part of
our body; He means that any person, program,
or teaching in the church that threatens
the spiritual growth of the body must be
removed. For the individual, any relationship,
practice, or activity that leads to sin
should be stopped. Jesus says it would be
better to go to Heaven with one hand than
to Hell with both. Sin affects more than
our hands; it affects our minds and hearts.
Mat.19:29 And every one
that hath forsaken houses, or brethren,
or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife,
or children, or lands, for my name's sake,
shall receive an hundredfold, and shall
inherit everlasting life. (KJV) Jesus assured the disciples that anyone
who gives up something valuable for His
sake will be repaid many times over in this
life, maybe not in the same form. For example,
a person may be rejected by his/her family
for accepting Christ, but he/she will gain
a larger family of believers.
shall he say also unto them on the left
hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting
fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: (KJV) God will separate His obedient
followers from pretenders and unbelievers.
The real evidence of our belief is how we
act. To treat all persons as if they are
Jesus is no easy task. But one day there
will be a final separation: the souls of
the faithful ones will go to be with Him.
The souls of the wicked (unbelievers) will
go to Hell for eternity.
these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous into life eternal. (KJV) The wicked (unbelievers, hypocrites)
will go into eternal punishment, but the
righteous (believers) will go into eternal
God so loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have everlasting
life. (KJV) God loved the
world (people) so much that He gave us His
only Son, so that EVERYONE who believes
in Him will never perish but have eternal
life in Heaven above.
3:36 He that believeth on the
Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth
not the Son shall not see life; but the
wrath of God abideth on him. (KJV) Everyone
who believes in God’s Son has eternal life.
Those who refuse to believe in the Son will
NEVER experience eternal life, for God’s
holy wrath remains upon them.
whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall
give him shall never thirst; but the water
that I shall give him shall be in him a
well of water springing up into everlasting
life. The water (Holy Spirit,
John 7:39) Jesus gives us takes away all
our thirst. It becomes a endless spring
within us, giving us eternal life. (KJV)
verily, I say unto you, He that heareth
my word, and believeth on him that sent
me, hath everlasting life, and shall not
come into condemnation; but is passed from
death unto life. (KJV) All
those who listen to Jesus’ Words and believe
in God who sent Him have eternal life. It
begins the moment you accept Christ. They
will never be condemned for their sins,
but they have already passed from death
not for the meat which perisheth, but for
that meat which endureth unto everlasting
life, which the Son of man shall give unto
you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
(KJV) We should not be so concerned about
perishable things like food. We should really
consider eternal life that only the Son
of Man, can give us. For God the Father
has sent Him for that very purpose.
this is the will of him that sent me, that
every one which seeth the Son, and believeth
on him, may have everlasting life: and I
will raise him up at the last day. (KJV) It is God the Father’s will that all
who SEE His Son and BELIEVE in Him should
have eternal life, and that Jesus should
raise us up at the last day.
verily, I say unto you, He that believeth
on me hath everlasting life. (KJV) Jesus tells us very clearly: I
assure you, anyone who believes in me already
has eternal life.
I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the
Father said unto me, so I speak. (KJV) Our Lord publicly proclaimed, that
EVERY ONE who believed on Him, and was His
TRUE disciple, did not believe on Him only,
but on the Father who sent Him. When we
SEE Jesus, the glory of the Father, we learn
to love, obey and trust in Him. We must
look to Him daily; this Saviour who came
as a Light into the world, then we are more
and more freed from the darkness of ignorance,
sin, and misery. We learn that the command
of God our Saviour is everlasting life.
But on the other hand, all those who despise,
reject or neglect Jesus, will most certainly
be condemned to an everlasting Hell. The
soul is eternal and will live in one of
two places: Heaven OR Hell! We are clearly
instructed in God’s Word how to achieve
eternal life;. It’s your decision IF you
obey or not.
6:22 But now being made free
from sin, and become servants to God, ye
have your fruit unto holiness, and the end
everlasting life. (KJV) Since
we are free from the power of sin and have
become servants of God, we should do those
things that lead to holiness and result
in eternal life.
6:8 For he that soweth to his
flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption;
but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of
the Spirit reap life everlasting. (KJV)
Those who live only to satisfy their own
sinful desires will harvest the consequences
of evil and death. But those who live to
please the Spirit will harvest everlasting
life from the Spirit. Again I tell you,
the soul is eternal and will live in ONE
of two places: Heaven or Hell --- your choice!
Thes. 1:9 Who shall be punished
with everlasting destruction from the presence
of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; (KJV) ALL those who reject and refuse Jesus
will be punished with everlasting destruction,
FOREVER separated from the Lord and from
His glorious power and all that is good.
Thes. 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus
Christ himself, and God, even our Father,
which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting
consolation and good hope through grace,
(KJV) Only our Lord Jesus Christ and God
our Father, who loved us and in their special
way can give us everlasting comfort and
good hope. Without Christ you are doomed!
have brought forth many Scripture verses
on eternal life. It is absolutely certain
that your soul will live forever! IF you
do not accept Christ as your Saviour and
Lord, you will be doomed to an eternity
in Hell. This weighs heavily on my mind
and heart. God does NOT want any to perish
in Hell, and neither do I. 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his
promise, as some men count slackness; but
is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing
that any should perish, but that all should
come to repentance. [KJV] The Lord isnít
really being slow about His promise to return,
as some people think. Some think that because
He has not returned, they canít believe
Him no matter what He says. God CANNOT lie
(Titus 1:2). Itís just that His time clock
is far different than ours! 1000 of our
years is like ONE day to God (2 Pet.3:8).
The reason He has not returned yet is because
He is being patient. He does not want anyone
to perish, so He is giving everyone more
time to repent.
