1 john 3:2-3, eph 5:25-271 Thessalonians 5:23
23And 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.
So I guess judging from this verse that both must be blameless before the lord but do they both go back with him? I think yes because where else would your spirit want to go?
That is correct. We are spirit beings created in the image of God. Also like God, we are triune beings; spirit, soul, and body. When we die, our spirit and soul live on (whether one goes to heaven or hell). Our body goes in the grave. At the resurrection, we will receive new, glorious bodies. I believe we will even look better than we do now. We'll be able to recognize one another as well. This is proven in Luke 16:22-25; the rich man in hell recognizes Lazarus in Abraham's bosom. We also see in this scripture, that we will be able to see, feel, and touch. Possibly smell and taste. For believers, those senses will experience pleasure in heaven; for sinners, torture, as we saw with the rich man, in hell. Our spirit man is the part that God communicates with. Satan has no access to the Born Again Believer's spirit. He only has access to our thoughts. That's why scripture commands us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). That way, when Satan tries to bring ungodly thoughts to our mind, we can come back at him with the word of God and he has to cease. It's so important to know the Word. God bless all.If you are saved our spirit and soul go to God when you die.
Azheis, first let me say greetings from a fellow Michigander, (temporarily living in the Tulsa area in the state of Oklahoma).Because soul life is in the blood: and flesh and blood
Ok Sheba â€¦.when someone asks you where your from in Michigan, do you hold up your hand and point to the place? I think people here would be lost without their hand.Azheis wrote:

I have to disagree that the soul is in the blood and flesh. Our soul is made up of the mind, will, and emotions. Our soul lives on (as does our spirit) when our bodies give out and die. The body is flesh and blood, and not part of the soul. We are tripart beings like our heavenly Father. Spirit, soul, and body (1 John 5:7-8). God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. Man is a spirit, who possess a soul (mind, will, and emotions), and who lives in a physical body (flesh & blood). Whether one goes to heaven or hell, his/her spirit and soul will live, though the physical body be dead. We will still be able to hear, see, taste, smell, and touch (Luke 16:22-31). God bless.
That's funny! Think I'll try that next time someone ask me.Ok Sheba ….when someone asks you where your from in Michigan, do you hold up your hand and point to the place? I think people here would be lost without their hand.

Okay, here's the thing about Leviticus 17:11. That scripture is talking strictly about animals. The life of the flesh is in the blood, that is in animals only. But Moses isn't speaking about the soul of man. Strong's Hebrew and Greek dictionaries define 'nephesh' as a "breathing creature that is animal". So we see the writer of Lev. 17 isn't talking about the soul of man.
As for Jesus speaking in parables concerning hell in Luke 16, that is a completely erroneous theory. But, I have class early in the morning and I'm unable to go into it right now. I shall however, return! God bless.
