The 3 Amigos,,,soul,body and spirit

Functionality of Spirit, Soul and Body

Author: Creflo Dollar


We have been conditioned to believe only what we can see, hear, touch, and smell; however, we must not forget that the spiritual realm is higher than the physical realm. All physical things originated in the unseen, spiritual realm, including all of mankind. We should keep in mind that we are spirits living in physical bodies, and the spiritual things we cannot see are just as real as the physical things we can see.


A.Man is a tri-part being—spirit, soul, and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
1.The body can be contacted with physical things, and the soul can be contacted with words.
2.However, the spirit of a person cannot be contacted by anything in this natural, physical realm.
a.The only way to contact the spirit is through the Word of God.
B.When we become born-again, our spirits become new (Ezekiel 36:26-27).
1.The prophet Ezekiel had a revelation of the born-again experience before it had taken place.
a.The Holy Spirit dwells within the born-again spirit.
b.The born-again spirit is one with God; it is as perfect, mature, and complete as Jesus is (Hebrews 12:23).
c.Our spirit has been sealed with the Holy Spirit and cannot be contaminated (Ephesians 1:13).
d.Everything we will ever need to live successful Christian lives is contained in our born-again spirits.
e.The spirit of might, which is the ability to do anything, is within us; however, the challenge for us has been making the connection with our spirits.
2.There are two things we must make a priority when we become born again.
a.We must renew our minds with the Word of God.
b.We must release things from the spiritual realm into the natural realm.
3.We should adopt the same attitude as Jesus did when He walked the earth. He was conscious of His oneness with God (Philippians 2:5-6, AMP).
a.As Christians, we are joined with the Holy Spirit. We are one with Him (1 Corinthians 6:17).
b.We should maintain an awareness of the Holy Spirit’s presence within us.
4.As Jesus is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).
a.Many of us do not know our identity in Christ, and Satan attacks our identity as a result.
b.He has attacked the identity of man since the beginning of time.
c.He attacked Adam’s identity, and attempted to attack Jesus’ identity.
d.We must look into the mirror of the Word of God each day to see a reflection of who we really are (James
