Spiritual Guide to Human Existance
Understanding that humans have a spiritual side is not difficult. Most people can tell the nature of another person’s spirit just by listening or watching that individual interact. Some of us are more sensitive and sense the positive or negative nature of a person just by being in the same room.
This page, or spiritual guide, uncovers some of the mistakes made in the quest to understand human existence more fully, and some of the truths of the past and future. This entire website documents my personal beliefs, and all I ask is you consider following along in this Bible study, and then decide how this might help you evaluate and form your belief system, as well.
Misinformation About Our Creator and the Bible is Certain
As a child and raised as a Christian, the Holy Bible was my roadmap for humans to understand spiritual existence. As an adult, the full meaning of God’s message to us is interpreted with such a variety of contradiction that finding truth is elusive. Throughout history people have used religion to commit crimes, undermine society, and even go to war. Some religious television personalities in recent times were accused of violating the very principles they preach.
If you skim past the first two verses of the Bible without truly knowing what is said, you cannot comprehend this fact: your spirit existed in a past age, as well as now. Consider language for a moment. To know the meaning of a word in English, you need a paragraph from a dictionary. The Bible was originally written in ancient languages and then translated from Hebrew, Chaldee and Aramaic in the Old Testament, and Greek in the New Testament.
A single word from the Bible that you read in English may be taken back to the original languages for a clearer definition. The Spiritual Journey reveals words and phrases that take on new meaning once studied from the ancient text. The work of expert linguist EW Bullinger helps enlighten us through his Companion Bible written over 100 years ago with detailed insight into the language of the Old Testament and New Testament.
Important: Scripture may be literal, figurative, or by type. Learning the difference is critical to understanding.
Spiritual Existence in the Past, Present, and Future
From reading the Bible cover to cover multiple times over several years, and then again cover to cover while referencing the original Hebrew, Chaldee, Aramaic, and Greek, new truths are being revealed. This journey is an invitation to join me as I start again from the beginning and document these truths step by step.
Patience is required because this study is a long journey. Major points are covered in detail while you are encouraged to study finer points in depth. For now, consider these three verses about your spiritual existence in the past, present, and future:
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb… Jeremiah 1:5 (KJV)
O, Lord… for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Revelation 4:11 (KJV)
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Ecc. 12:7 (KJV)
All of us existed in a prior earth age in spiritual form before the downfall of Satan. This prior earth age is the topic of the very first lesson of Genesis. God created your unique soul (spiritual being) and spirit (mind and intellect) and knew you then. Each soul must pass once through this current second earth age in the flesh. Upon physical death the living spirit will immediately return to God awaiting judgment and the last earth age which is eternal.
Comparison of the Body, Soul, and Spirit
Comparing body, soul, and spirit in human terms your flesh and bone body is the temporary container for your soul and spirit in this life. Your soul is that living, unique, and recognizable supernatural being that includes your spirit which is the immaterial cognitive mind and intellect. Thus, when you die you return instantly to God, and you will know and be recognized by those who went before you.
