If We Die is the Soul, Body and Spirit All Saved?
Thanks for the word in this article. Question is if we die is the soul, body and Spirit all saved? Where does the soul, body and Spirit go after death? Are the three all connected? Can we life without our soul or body or Spirit?
If not, did Jesus only die for our Spirit and we have to carry on working on our soul and body? Therefore Jesus did not once and for all saved us as we still have a part to play... Do we have to save our soul and body ourselves?
Please help just a thought,
Hello, thank you for your questions Mario,
If we die, yes the spirit the soul and the body are all saved. Jesus redeemed all of it. When we die our spirit and our soul goes to heaven as Paul said, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord ( II Corinthians 5:8 ). While our bodies are buried because we are still waiting for our final redemption, which is the body ( Romans 8:23 ), but Jesus has already purchased it. All three are interconnected and we need all three for life in this world. In contrast, to live out the life Jesus purchased for us, we do not need to work for it, we simply live by walking after the spirit so we do not gratify the desires of the flesh ( Romans 8, Galatians 5:16-18 ). Instructions on how to live by the Spirit come from the word of God which we must renew our mind (soulish realm) to ( Hebrews 12:1-2, II Peter 1:2-4 ). This is why understanding the Spirit, Soul and Body is so important because it shows us what has been purchased for us and how to live!
Hope this helps to answer your questions. God bless you as you seek him!
