Body, Soul, and Spirit Understanding

Over the years, Sue and I have tripped up time and time again in our marriage and relationships because our understanding of the body, soul, and spirit remained unclear. Often our soul life ruled the roost. We had read Norman Grubb and Jesse Penn Lewis before, but it didn’t seem clear to me/us.

Last night the Lord wanted us to get this settled once and for all, so today in our home church, the Holy Spirit led us to get this teaching again through John Paul Jackson’s short video on Soul and Spirit:

The Rest of the Gospel by Dan Stoneand Dan Stone’s book, The Rest of The gospel: When the Partial Gospel Has Worn Out.

Just a few minutes into the video teaching, Sue remembered in Dan Stones book, Chapter 6 about the Swing. The recording below is Sue reading and our discussion and prayer.

We did go on to watch the remainder of the recording and gleaned two scripture verses that support this lesson:

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrew 4:12)


May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. (1 Thess 5:23-24)

Lord we pray that you grind this into us so we no longer trip up by our lack of understanding and we trust your anointing in us to teach us all things.
