Man is made up of (3) parts. Spirit, soul, and body. Mans being is physical, spiritual, and eternal. Without Christ the make-up of man is without hope and destined for eternal punishment.
The Holy Spirit was sent down from Heaven to reveal human doubt. The doubting conscience of man can be turned away from lawlessness and rebellion…by the Spiritual presence of a living Christ. The ministry of the Holy Spirit causes fallen men to believe, surrender, and understand Christ.
The soul of man is man’s power to choose and decide. When you take doubt away men can believe enough to find Eternal Salvation by faith. Saving Faith can be maintained or lost as the soul of man unites or separates from the presence of a living Christ who saves, redeems, forgives, and sanctifies. the witness of God is greater than the natural witness of men.
Man can only have the certainty of hope if his faith in Christ stays connected to Christ. Through a Spiritual union – the soul of man finds peace with God, peace with himself, and peace with all humanity. What is man without Christ? Hopeless and separated. What is man that has Christ within? Connected with Eternal hope. A saved man is a man who stays in harmony with God Almighty. How does a save man stay in harmony? By being faithful to a God who saves and regenerates the human soul.
I once was lost – but now am found – was blind – but now I see. Glory! Faith in Christ allows God to help man make the right choices and decisions. Without faith in Christ its impossible to please the God of Salvation. When the Holy Spirit reveals doubt – man finds his inner most need to believe and trust Christ with everything within. Realization of a gift from Christ is the reason men can believe unto righteousness.
God given righteousness takes the believing soul to Heaven. Unrighteousness takes the unbeliever straight into the pits of an Eternal Hell. I am so glad any man can have a better life on this side of life and on the other side likewise. What is man? Happy in Jesus.
