    of the wind, hence the wind itself
    breath of nostrils or mouth
    the spirit, i.e. the vital principal by which the body is animated
    the rational spirit, the power by which the human being feels, thinks, decides
    THE SOUL
    a spirit, i.e. a simple essence, devoid of all or at least all grosser matter, and possessed of the power of knowing, desiring, deciding, and acting
    a life giving spirit
    a human soul that has left the body
    a spirit higher than man but lower than God, i.e. an angel
    used of demons, or evil spirits, who were conceived as inhabiting the bodies of men
    the spiritual nature of Christ, higher than the highest angels and equal to God, the divine nature of Christ
    of God
    God's power and agency distinguishable in thought from his essence in itself considered
    manifest in the course of affairs
    by its influence upon the souls productive in the theocratic body (the church) of all the higher spiritual gifts and blessings
    the third person of the trinity, the God the Holy Spirit
    the disposition or influence which fills and governs the soul of any one
    the efficient source of any power, affection, emotion, desire, etc.    

    ECCL tells of the nature and fate of the human spirit.

    Ecclesiastes 8:8
    There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
    Ecclesiastes 11:5
    As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
    Ecclesiastes 12:7
    Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    But Scripture tells us man is body, soul and spirit and that there is a diviosion between soul and spirit.

    1 Thessalonians 5:23
    And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Hebrews 4:12
    For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    We should then try to find those verses where it is written SPIRIT but means SOUL.
    Who would like to offer some?


    Nick, as you have correctly pointed out, man is to be body and soul and spirit.  I Thessalonians 5:23

    “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    Regarding your request for places where spirit is referring to soul

    Consider the following passages:

    Matthew 27:50

    Mark 8:12

    Luke 8:55

    Luke 10:21

    Luke 23:46

    John 19:30

    Acts 7:59

    I Corinthians 5:4

    Galatians 6:18 or it could mean the innermost part of a man's being, ie, heart.

    II Timothy 4:22  or maybe means spiritually.

    James 2:26

    James 4:5

    I John 4:2  the second use

    I John 4:3

    I looked them up in a reference book, the work is not mine, but the author spent decades working the subject.

    Hi KW,
    Man is body soul and spirit.

    When a man dies his spirit returns to God.
    Souls go to the mansions of Christ or sheol.

    Nick,

    Man was created with two sides; the material from earth and the non-material from heaven.  Both the soul and spirit are non-material.

    The scroll of  Ezekiel forecasts that the spirit and heart are to be changed.  Can a soul be altered?

    Ezekiel 11:19
    King James Version (KJV)

    19And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

    What is meant by heart?

    Hi KW,
    So God gives us of His Spirit and works in us a transformation of our hearts and minds.
    We develop the mind and heart of Christ Jesus.

    Hi,
    Do you understand how God knows your thoughts and motives?
    Prov 20.27
    “The spirit of man is a lamp of the LORD searching all the innermost parts of his being”

    Nick,

    It is written:

    1 Corinthians 2
    King James Version (KJV)

    10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
    11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

    What meaning of spirit in man corresponds to the Spirit of God?  Is there a part of man and God where the deep things are stored?

    Hi,
    This can be a problem.
    Soul can be called spirit.

    There is a difference

    12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    Every persons soul is different,
    and will be judged accordingly.

    Every mans spirit is different also.
    Depending on each own lusts,and hunger.

    I hunger for seeking God;that is my spirit.
    My spirit does not hunger for things of the world.

    My soul is the essence of my being.
    What I am in God's eyes.

    wakeup.

    Nick.

    Dont twist my words.

    The spirit of man differs in each person.
    The soul is the essence of the person.
    The spirit of life is the breath of life.
    The spirit of Jesus is the Holy Spirit.

    The spirit of Jesus in a person,
    is the holy spirit in that person.
    He still has the breath of life in him,
    that can be taken away.

    wakeup.

    Hi TC,

    Heb 4.12

    For the word of God is alive and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit..
