Do You have an immortal Soul? 03/04/2008
Countless millions of people believe that we have an immortal soul.
Stem cell reporters, ministers and scientists are asking does this
clump of cells have an immortal soul?
Roman Catholics pray for the souls of ‘the faithful departed’, whatever
Have you ever heard of anyone condemned to hell at a funeral?
How can we get through this maze of confusion that has earned the
Catholic church billions of dollars/pounds over the years, all based
on the immortality of the soul?
Does the bible say that God has a soul?
What do you believe?
What does the bible say ?
Leviticus 26:13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of
Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and
made you go upright. . . . . .
Leviticus 26:30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast
your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.
The Eternal God is saying that with His entire being he will loathe us because of our
The reality is that a soul is not something that you have,
but rather it is what you are.
We have to realise that when Adam was made from the dust of the
ground, he was actually a dead and lifeless body, just a corpse, no more than that.
If you have ever seen a dead body, that is precisely how Adam looked
at the moment he had been formed.
Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground,
. . . .
It was a separate act that moved him from being dead to the living.
Genesis 2:7 . . . .and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man
became a living soul.
The making of Adam and bringing him from death to life exactly mirrors our spiritual
condition prior to conversion.
No matter how wonderful we might think that we are,
none the less we were just the walking dead.
That is all.
Until the Eternal God breathes Himself into us, that condition
is how we will remain, until we return to the dust from which we have come.
A soul is the complex composite of the created man.
A man consists first of all of a human spirit, and secondly a physical body.
This body has to have the breath of life imparted to it to make it a living human being.
The Eternal God, breathes into that body, the breath of life.
There is no other source of life in the universe.
Whether the birth is legitimate of illegitimate, the life has to come from the Eternal God.
It does not matter whether it is physical life or Eternal Life.
Satan might well make lying promises, but what is certain is that he cannot deliver
to fulfil his lies.
Is this breath of life just the matter of forcing air into the lungs
of man, a sort of resuscitation?
You can force as much air into a dead body as you like,
and that will not bring the body back to life.
You can even circulate blood, and do absolutely whatever you want,
man has no means of restoring life to a corpse.
Jairus’ daughter !!!
Luke 8:49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the
synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the
Luke 8:50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not:
believe only, and she shall be made whole. . . . . .
Luke 8:54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand,
and called, saying, Maid, arise.
Luke 8:55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway:
and he commanded to give her meat.
This tells us that the little girl’s spirit had left her body,
but it was still in existence, it had not gone off to purgatory.
We are then told that after Christ told the maid to arise,
her spirit returned to her body from whence it had come.
When the Eternal God breathed into the man, he not only put air into his lungs,
but he also imparted his individual ‘human spirit in man’, into him.
Isaiah 42:5 ¶ Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched
them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it;
1) he that giveth breath unto the people upon it,
2) and spirit to them that walk therein:
Twice the bible states that the spirit in man is one of the most important
creations of the Eternal God. We are told that the spirit in man
was made at the same time that the heavens and the earth were created.
We saw the first, now this is the second time.
Zechariah 12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel,
saith the LORD,
1) which stretcheth forth the heavens, and
2) layeth the foundation of the earth, and
3) formeth the spirit of man within him.
This has nothing to do with the Holy Spirit.
We can see the clear distinction between the human spirit and the Holy Spirit.
In these verses we see that the fallen human spirit is replaced by a new spirit
and then the Holy Spirit, which is God, makes the converted person His temple,
His dwelling place.
Ezekiel 36:25 ¶ Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean:
from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and
ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
From these verses we can clearly see that it is the indwelling of God in the person that
enables the individual to obey the Eternal God. Without the Holy Spirit obedience
We also need to note that man was made in the image of God.
Gensis 1:26 ¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth.
Gensis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them.
Whatever we might think, let us make man, does not mean that there is more
than one God, as verse 27 clarifies.
Man was made in His image.
Before the fall man would have also possessed powers which he lost when he
He had the means to maintain the garden of Eden which was very large.
He most likely carried out his instructions by spoken commands.
He most likely was covered with the glory of a sinless body.
Therefore when they sinned they lost the glory and realised that they were
That is what they were trying to replace when they sowed fig leaves
Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that
they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves
The entire plan of God, and Christ’s sacrifice is to put us back to this position
of lives without sin, with the addition of a resurrection to immortal life.
If we already have immortal life indwelling, why did Christ have to suffer and
die on our behalf to enable us to receive the gift of Eternal Life?
If we are already ‘Eternal’ or in other words immortal, what is the point
of Eternal Life as a gift, if we already have it?
Christ specifically put Adam and Eve out of the garden so that they would not
be able to take of the tree of life, in their fallen condition.
He was put precisely where he had been made, before he had been brought into
the garden. Outside the garden it was a stark place,
without the joys of the garden, as he quickly found out.
A place of sweat and fruitless toil and misery as it is for most in the world today.
This is the exact spiritual position of everyone who has not as yet been born from above.
The few have the wealth but almost not a single one enjoy it.
The reason is that there are two distinct blessings, and the only receive one.
This makes the second one a curse and not a blessing!
Ecclesiastes 5:19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath
given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour;
this is the gift of God.
Ecclesiastes 6:2 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he
wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat
thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
Adam and Eve were driven out of the garden so that they could not take of the tree
of life, which would result in an everlasting life of pain, sickness, sorrow.
Death would henceforth take place to terminate this life of suffering, and the Eternal
God would intervene and by His sacrifice,
restore everything to how it was in the first place
Genesis 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the
garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way,
to keep the way of the tree of life.
This is a direct contradiction of the doctrine of the immortal soul.
I have asked bible scholars what they thought the spirit in man looked like.
They told me, that they did not know, and that it was something situated in the forehead !
Similar believers of an immortal soul can give you no idea of what it looks like.
We have a complete document dealing with “The Spirit In Man”, which deals with this.
The spirit in man looks precisely as the man looks right down to the most minute detail.
Think of it as the hologram of a man.
You see it, but there is nothing to touch, it is spirit.
Consider the report, which is not a parable, regarding Lazarus and the rich man.
It was their spirits which were communicating with each other.
They recognised, spoke to and reasoned with each other etc.
Is this an immortal soul?
No it is not because these spirits can be destroyed.
Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into
the lake of fire.
The Eternal God can destroy any part of his creation, whether it is physical or spiritual.
Why should we think that he cannot do so?
Once again this is very important for us today.
In these end times we need to be able to distinguish between spiritual
counterfeiters of even our friends !!
The point is the absolute accuracy with which a spirit can imitate.
That is Satan’s counterfeit of the spirit in man.
We have been given the tools to discern false from true spirits.
It all comes down to demanding that these people/spirits confess that Christ
has come in the flesh.
Evil spirits will not do this.
2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus
Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
Satan and his evil spirits hate even the name of Christ, as they have no choice but to bow
down to him.
These principles are very important for us today.
The spirits of the deceased are not permitted to communicate with the living.
However, millions of people sin and pay good money to speak to their dead relatives.
This is a gross deception.
Any spirit of the dead, is either a demon or a fallen angel,
and spells trouble with a capital T.
Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his
daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an
enchanter, or a witch,
Deuteronomy 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a
Deuteronomy 18:12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and
because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Deuteronomy 18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
Of course Satan knows that people have spirits, which many Christians have no clue about.
Not only does he know but he clearly sees the condition of their spirits and knows whether
they are genuine Christians or to use his own words, bible carrying ‘hypocrites’.
See: Emmanuel Eni Delivered from the powers of Darkness.
He deceives billions to join him on his bandwagon to hell.
It is quite impossible to legally separate a man from his spirit.
To do this is to die.
I use the term legally because those who have fellowship with Satan,
can illegally have this power, so that they can do such things, as astral
travel, which is empowered by Satan.
The spirit and the body are so closely intertwined, they are quite inseparable.
This is what the following verse is saying.
It shows how closely they are as one, just like the bones with the marrow.
Consider this amazing separating the thought from the intent.
The result is that it takes God to make the separation.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than
any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents
of the heart.
I believe that the spirit in man enters into a man at the moment of
conception, when a new life is formed.
The process of life is seen from the fact that the cells start carrying
out their God ordained functions, to ultimately form whatever part
of the body assigned to it.
We can forget about the blasphemous concept of evolution, which the bible
states is a doctrine of fools.
Psalms 14:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt,
they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Contraception is one thing, and destruction of a life, such as abortion and anything which
destroys life is an entirely different matter.
Paul makes it clear that immortality is something that the true believer
will eventually receive. It is not something that we already have.
1 Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this
mortal must put on immortality.
1 Corinthians 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
What would be the point of receiving something that we already have?
Does that make any sort of sense?
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the
second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
and shall reign with him a thousand years.
It is the second death which results in total oblivion.
This puts the final nail in the coffin of immortality of the soul.
It is no wonder that the Roman Catholic church hates, and tries
to avoid and do away with the book of Revelation.
It tells of Satan’s fate, as well as the fate of his rebellious followers,
and the wonderful reward of the faithful with a very real life in the New Jerusalem,
no purgatory, or other figment of the imagination ideas.
Job also makes clear that there is a spirit in man.
Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty
giveth them understanding.
The spirit in man is not immortal and it can also be destroyed.
The bible does not teach the immortality of the soul but rather the mortality of the soul.
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father,
so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
How plain is that?
Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the
iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son:
the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of
the wicked shall be upon him.
Numbers 15:28 And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that
sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make
an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.
No confusion here, it is crystal clear.
A soul can sin and a soul can die.
One function of the resurrection is to create a situation where
the wheat can be separated from the chaff, the sheep from the goats,
and then the whole man will either be resurrected to a new spirit body,
of completely destroyed as if he did not exist in the first place.
Am I saying that those who are not saved now are lost?
I am not saying any such thing.
At some point every one will be given the choice, to choose life or death.
It will be exactly as it is now, a voluntary choice.
If you chose life you will live.
If you chose death you will die.
It is very simple and very clear, indeed.
Revelation 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain
of the water of life freely.
Revelation 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things;
and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall
have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is
the second death.
Things a soul can do.
Leviticus 5:1 And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witnes
Leviticus 5:2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing
Leviticus 5:4 Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do good,
Leviticus 6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour
Leviticus 7:18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings
be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be
imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination,
and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.
Leviticus 7:27 Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even
that soul shall be cut off from his people.
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to
you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood
that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Leviticus 20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits,
and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against
that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
Leviticus 23:29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that
same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.
Genesis 35:18 And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she
called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.
Exodus 31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that
defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul
shall be cut off from among his people.
You no longer need to be deceived by the false doctrine of the immortal soul.
Maybe it is time to question the many other false teachings that Satan has been
vigorously promoting through the ‘fallen churches’.
We have seen that there is a spirit in man as distinct from an immortal soul.
Eternal Life is a destination that will be given to us either at the resurrection
or at the return of Christ, depending on our spiritual status.
It is not something which we all automatically have.
Wake up, as the hour is very late, and endeavour to be part of the manchild,
which is by far the best option for all of us. See our document for details.
. The only way out of this dilemma is Jesus Christ.
. He is the only way of escape.
. We have to be under His Care and Protection.

Simply does not exist.
