All human beings have two natures-spiritual and physical. What is the difference between the spiritual nature of all human beings that returns to God after death and the Holy Spirit? How do they function together in the same body?

Nothing is stated in the Bible about mankind having two natures.  Genesis 2:7 teaches that God made man from the dust of earth then breathed life into him.  Man became a living soul. Soul = Body + Breath of life. He did not receive a soul with two natures. In fact, both the children of […]

The breath of man and beast are the same. But in Ecclesiastes 3:21, why does one go upward and another go downward to the earth?

“For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity. All go to the same place (the grave). All came from the […]

1 Thessalonians 5:23 says man has a spirit, soul and body. How do you explain this?

That the terms body, soul and spirit are not identical and interchangeable as many assume is shown in the use of all three terms in 1 Thessalonians 5:23. The Apostle Paul wrote, “I pray God your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless, unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” This prayer […]

When a man dies, does his soul go to hell or move to the middle of sky?

Man does not have a soul, but he IS a soul. 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.” (Genesis 2:7).  When a person dies, his body decomposes and the breath of life returns […]

How can we know that there is a soul after death?

Scripturally, the soul is defined as the whole human being. 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.” Man […]

What is the different between spirit and soul?

The word soul comes from the Hebrew word “nephesh” which means “a living being” in 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 the man became a living soul."  So when God created man, Adam, the body was not […]

Where are the dead and explain the meaning of soul with scriptural references.

Thinking about your question on where are the dead, makes me think of the scripture in Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom in the grave (Hebrew “Sheol”) where you are going.” When Jesus spoke of death, […]

Can the Deceased Communicate With Us Spiritually?

No, the dead cannot communicate with us. There is no scripture in the Bible that tells us that the dead can communicate, at all. On the contrary, Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 tells us: “the dead know nothing. … They no longer play a part in anything here on earth.” (New Living Translation) That would pretty much rule […]

Do God, Satan and angels have souls?

To answer your first question: Do God, Satan and angels have souls? Yes, they have souls as do all animals (Job. 12:10). The soul being the essence of what makes you, you—your memories, thoughts—like information on a disc, but in another sense, they are souls. The word “soul” is used a few different ways in […]

Do angels have souls?

What is the scriptural definition of soul?  Genesis 2:7 (King James Version), “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.” The Bible teaches the body plus the breath of life equals a living soul. Man did […]
