In a conversation the other day, the person desired to live a full life, which is what most people would pray for themselves and their loved ones.
However, there is another level, apart from living a full life we must be hundred percent sure that we are going to spend eternity with God.
One of the main deceptions of Satan is that this time and space reality is all there is and the gullible people sign their life away in red ink and consequently hand over their soul. – Now that is so stupid.
Once you come the revelation that the human soul lives forever such idiotic acts will stop.
Let’s look at some more verses in the Bible quoted by Jesus.
what shall I do to inherit eternal life [to partake of eternal salvation in the Messiah’s kingdom]?
The above verse was a question by the young ruler, the 3 Abrahamic regions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam all have belief in eternal life. However, these religions believe differently on how a person inherits eternal life.
I can only talk for my faith – Christianity, which is to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and his death on the cross has redeemed our soul back to God, and this makes us saved.
We all know that our physical body ultimately turns back to dust, as our body is just a container for our soul.
At the time of death, our soul leaves our body and takes the spiritual journey, to a destination.
My point here is that the young ruler representing the Judaism religion, believed in eternal life, which is our soul, as our soul will be given a spiritual body at the time of death.
These three religions account for approximately 55 percent of the world’s populations with Christianity having 32 percent from the 55 percent.
In order to ultimately find the value of the Human soul, the next logical step would be to find out what happens to our soul when we die. However, before we get to this stage. Let’s a have to look at what King Solomon (the man known as the wisest person in the old testament) and Apostle Paul because he probably received more revelation that any of the Apostles in the New Testament.
To my disappointment, I couldn’t find anything of substance from Solomon in regards to the soul, the closest I could find was from Ecclesiastes 12:7 which says: the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who made it.
Now some people classify the spirit and soul the same, but I do not, I am not going to try and distinguish between the two since my primary objective to find what the value of the Human soul is.
What we should bear in mind is that when we get saved, we are giving a new spirit, not a new soul, the enemy is not after our spirit but people’s soul because whoever owns our soul will determine what type of spirit we have, which is either the spirit of God or the enemy.
In the next blog, there is a particular Bible verse I have in mind by Apostle Paul, which I find interesting and I hope to discover what it means: 1 Corinthians 5:5.
Remember Jesus Christ is the Light & Saviour of the World.
Until Next time, keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
Peace. Daniel – The Christian Activist.
