Spirit Series, Part 2 (Most Holy Place)
The climbers rest in each others’ skills and care.
The expertise of a few of them far surpasses that of the others, assuring a skilled oversight and a safer climb. The leader is the most skilled and the climber who brings up the rear must be ably experienced, as well, since his assessment of the wellbeing of the others is so important to the group. Any falter is more readily apparent to him than the man leading, whose back is to the group…
Does our personal spirit have faculties and administrations like the body and soul does?
Yes, in fact, the personal spirit has the very same number of faculties and administrations as the body and soul. However, just as the soul senses are different from the body’s, the spirit senses differ from the body and soul. These senses reflect the realm of its presence, origin and purpose within eternity.
The administrations of this sentient agency, on the other hand, have patently unique operations, but boast the same names as the administrations of first, the body and then, the soul. A subject we will cover in a different article.
An interesting side note: Because of the abiding eternalness of our soul and spirit, we sometimes experience a type of spillover into our conscious and subconscious minds, which is manifested as a feeling we have that we cannot die. Think, haven’t you experienced this manifestation? Many people do and we’ve seen it depicted in movies, as well. This feeling often runs contrary to the reasoning of our minds, which argues that we are, in fact, mortal.
The tangible, sentient ‘personal’ spirit is heavenly-conscious. Its gift is to interrelate with what Holy Writ calls ‘The Third Heaven,’ the mysterious realm all around us that remains just out of visual reach. Its senses and administrations operate there and interact with our soul. Your spirit is like a bridge between the Heavenly realm and your soul. What may be surprising to you is that it exists and that you have been a passive receiver of the benefits of its presence.
This loaned breath of God is invisible to our natural eyes. It is eternal. It always was and always shall be. It is part of the nature of the great I Am. That nature is divine, abundant life. It is glorious light. It is spiritual. Although it is of divine substance, it is but a taste of God’s nature, life, and light. As mind-filling as that might be, the personal spirit only tenuously reaches unto God’s omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience.
This personal spirit is clearly laid out in scripture.
It is written, “…we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? Hebrews 12:9 KJV
And it is written, “To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect…” Hebrews 12:23 KJV
What are the spirit senses?
Research states that a sense is best understood as the capacity of a sentient agent that provides information for perception. Therefore, senses render the capacity to perceive, or gain insight into, the realities they inhabit. Each spirit sense is Godly purposed to be a specialist for just you.
Still relying upon God’s teaching template…our physical body, something we know quite well, has five senses. In seven previous articles we argue that the soul has five senses. It should come as no surprise to learn that the personal spirit has five senses, as well. These spirit senses are…
- Worship (true) of God
- Fear of God
- Hope of God
- Faith of God
- Love of God
As previously mentioned, the administrations of the spirit will be addressed in a subsequent article.
In our next article, Part 3 in the series about the personal spirit, we will explain the spirit sense, ‘True Worship.’
