It's in the Blood
Last week I began teaching on what exactly our soul is and that Satan has continued his lie that death is not death to our present day. I'm going to try and do this topic as much justice as I possibly can in the short time I have every day. I will probably spread this across a couple days.
First off, I need to retread a little ground here. I wrote that our Souls are what result from the combination of spirit and body. I also wrote that animals also have a soul.
Yesterday I even added a postscript which I'll reiterate here. The modern translations of our Bibles have massively mistranslated the word Soul in both hebrew and greek to mean a variation of over 40 different words. In the Concordant bible, however, the translation for the Hebrew and Greek for Soul is literally translated to be SOUL.
This is incredibly important, because unless these words are translated correctly, the definition and understanding of what a soul is, is completely lost.
In Genesis 9 God tells us what our soul is;
Only flesh with it's soul, it's blood...
He continues on in that chapter equating the soul with Blood.
Again it is emphasised in
For the soul of the flesh, it is in the blood, and I Myself have assigned it to you to make a propitiatory shelter over your souls on the alter; for the blood, because of the soul, it makes a propitiatory shelter.
This is amazing and opens up a vast store of revelations as a result. Many people think God is just blood hungry, but that's simply not the case. The Soul is the blood. And in order to save our souls, we had to use the blood of animals to cleanse us from the sin of our souls. However, the old Testament sacrificial system was just a template of what Christ's blood would ultimately do.
This isn't blood hunger, this is a necessary EXCHANGE. The sin of our souls for the redemption of Christ's. HIS Blood, HIS SOUL, was exchanged for ours so we could be cleansed!! This is amazing.
I'll continue on track however.
Because our soul is in the blood, it's obvious we are not immortal. In fact, immortality is only mentioned a few times in the entire Bible and it is NEVER in reference to our souls.
In speaking of Christ;
1 Timothy 6:16
16 Who alone has immortality...
Jesus alone is immortal
1 Corinthians 15:53
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal put on immortality.
We are still corruptible, thus, we are NOT immortal.
1 Corinthians 15:22
22 For even as, in Adam, all are dying..
All are dying, nothing has changed since Satan told his lie. It's STILL a lie.
1 Corinthians 15:22
...thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified.
We aren't KEPT alive... we are MADE alive. Christ will vivify us. Another word for RESURRECTION. When are we vivified? Read 1 Corinthians 15 on your own. It holds a hosts of treasures.
So where do we go when we die? I'll answer that question tomorrow.
Continue to read the word, study what I've said. Get a proper translation so you can understand the word of God correctly. Trust me, these traditions hold no sway in the light of true and correctly translated scripture!
With all love,
