The Trinity of Man

We are a trinity made up of spirit, soul and body. This is very important, because your identification, rest, peace and joy as a Christian is all wrapped up in your understanding of this triunion. When we are saved or born again, Christ comes to live inside us in our SPIRIT. Your Old Nature is cast out. That makes you a Christ person and PERFECT IN CHRIST JESUS. Bet, no one has ever told you that you are PERFECT. If Christ lives in your Spirit! It is HE that is Perfect in you.. If Christ lives in you? Then you have eternal life, because of the birthing of His Son in you. HE cannot leave or go in and out of you, saved today and lost tomorrow. HE is a one trip Savior, because Salvation is a Person, and it is Christ Jesus. Jesus will finish in you what HE has started, believe me, I know. When the Father looks at you He only sees HIS SON JESUS IN YOU. Some documentation….

Col 1:28
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man PERFECT in Christ Jesus:                                                                                  
Listen to a short message from Rick Collins about the trinity man

(See Christ In You is PERFECT..) KJV

Col 2:10
10 And ye are complete (PERFECT) in Him, which is the head of all principality and power: KJV

John 17:23
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made PERFECT in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. KJV

The Christ that lives in your Spirit can not SIN, but you can in your Soul. Bet, no one has ever told you that there is a part of you that can not sin. Some more documentation…

1 John 3:9
9 Whosoever is born (BORN AGAIN- SAVED) of God doth not commit sin; for his seed (SEED IS CHRIST IN YOUR SPIRIT) remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. KJV

1 John 5:18
18 We know that whosoever is born of God (BORN AGAIN-SAVED) sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one (SATAN) toucheth him not. (You have eternal life and Satan can’t touch you, because you are a child of God.) KJV

In our SOUL- MIND is where we sin.

1 John 3:5,6
5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
KJV ( We abideth or live with HIM.)

1 John 1:8,10
8 If we say that we ( WE IS SOUL) have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Our spirit is saved or born again, but our soul is constantly being saved, renewed and taught by the Holy Spirit about the Christ that lives in us and desires to be our life. Our soul is made up of our knowledge, will and emotion. Problem with our souls is, it still remembers our Old Nature that is now dead and Crucified with Christ. It is also called the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil or living in the flesh. Our New Nature which is Christ in our Spirit, wants us to walk in the Spirit with HIM. So how do we bridge the gap between the Christ that lives in us, and we knowing about it in our soul. The Holy Spirit is the teacher of our soul, so we can know the Christ that lives in us and desires to be manifested as our life. The only life we have to live!!!! Here is documentation on the Holy Spirit as our teacher…

John 14:26
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring ALL THINGS to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. KJV

John 15:26
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of ME: (ME here is Jesus, and testify is teaching us about Jesus.) KJV

The third part of the trinity is our body. Our bodies have been given as a container or vessel to express our Spirit, which is Christ and our Soul, which is our mind, will and emotion. Christ died so He could live inside us and have oneness, union, communion and fellowship with us and be manifest in our bodies as an outward expressed to the world. If you don’t know that Christ lives in you as your life, and you are perfect and can’t be altered or changed. You are probably going to spend a large portion of your Christian life condemning yourself of past, present and future sins, which are paid for on the cross. If you don’t condemn yourself, people and religion will do it for you. Religion is working for something you already have or trying to be who you already are by the birthing. Christ in you is a be-er, and He does all the work, and you REST, but religion is a do-er and you do all the work until you’re burned-out an empty. Who are we anyway? We are born again Sons of The Living God, by the Birthing. Christ is birth in our container as our life. The liberty and freedom that we have in Christ Jesus through His Grace is wonderfully sweet.

Rom 8:1
8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation (CONDEMNING) to them which are IN CHRIST JESUS, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. KJV

John 8:32
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. KJV

John 8:36
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. KJV

You got sins you just can’t seem to get rid of or shake. Fall in love with the Christ that live in you and watch them fade away.
I hope understanding this helps someone like it did me.
Drop me a line and let me know…Thanks for reading this!!!!

Jesus as your life,

John 3:17
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.(KJV)

If Jesus does not condemn you, who does? Moses’ law always ministers condemnation. You will be condemned every time you fail and fall short of God’s standards, when you live under the law. You will feel that God no longer wants you because you are not good enough. Then there are all the doctrines and commandments of men, which include the touch not, taste not, and handle not commands. Many, who know not the Scriptures, are condemned by these commandments of men.
Rom 3:20
20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.(KJV)

God did not give the law to make us righteous through our own obedience. He gave us the law so that we would have the knowledge of sin. The law is good, holy, and spiritual. The problem is not with the law. The problem is our own flesh or carnal mind. No matter how hard one may try to keep the law and the commandments of men, they will fail. Satan will use God’s law as a weapon to condemn you. He will cause you to fall under condemnation, and you will begin to fear. God never gives anyone the spirit of fear. What does condemnation and guilt do to you? It causes you to run from God just like Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden after they had disobeyed.
Rom 8:1-2

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them, which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

The Law of Moses was designed to condemn you. It is the law of sin and death. It wasn’t designed to make you righteous. When you are in Christ Jesus, and He is living in you, begin to see yourself as righteous. Not because of what you have done or have not done, but because it is the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses you. He is righteous and is in you.
1 Cor 1:30 (KJV)
30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

When our Father looks at you, all that He sees is His only begotten Son, who is living in you. It is His righteousness and holiness that the Father beholds. It is the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus that makes you free from the law of sin and death. Freedom from sin does not come by your good works or by abstaining from evil. Christ in you is your hope of glory.
Rom 3:21
21 But now the righteousness of God without the lawis manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;(KJV)

“What will give you the boldness to go back to your heavenly Father after you have fallen short of the mark?” It is the knowledge of God’s love for you and the understanding of what Jesus accomplished on the cross for you. Jesus died for us when we were yet sinners. This means that the Father and Son loved us so much that He was willing to take our place and die for our sin, not His sin for He had no sin. This love is not dependent on anything you can do. You cannot make Him love you any more and neither can you make Him love you any less. He is love.

Look at the parable of the prodigal son and you will be able to see the heart of God. (See Luke 15: 11 –32) Although the younger son’s actions were very self-serving, the Father ran to meet his son and hugged and kissed him. He did not condemn his son. He gave his son the best robe and put it on him. He put a ring on his finger, and shoes on his feet. He called for the servants to kill the fatted calf and for them to eat and be merry. Your heavenly Father, when you turn to Him, will also run and embrace you even though you have failed. Jesus said, “When you have seen me you have seen the Father”. If Jesus did not come to condemn, neither does your Father. He will run to meet you with open arms full of love not condemnation.
2 Cor 5:19
19 To wit, that Gos in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

It is time to lay aside your religious ideas about God. He loves you just as you are. Run to Him and embrace Him even when you think there is no way that He could possibly love you. It is Satan that condemns you and accuses you. It is not the Holy Spirit convicting you. He never points out your faults. The Holy Spirit will only convict you of one sin, and that is the sin of unbelief, which is the sin of rejecting Jesus not believing in His finished work on the cross. (John 16:8-11) The Holy Spirit will teach you that even though you have failed, you are still the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Your Father is watching and waiting for you to come home. He longs to show you just how much He loves you!

John 17:1-3
1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (KJV)

Christ in you has all power over your flesh. It is also written that no man can pluck you out of the hand of your Lord and Savior. (John 10:28) Not even you can pluck you out of His hand. Your sins past, present, and future were paid for in the body of Jesus Christ on the cross. When you fail, accept His forgiveness immediately. Do not run away from Him. Learn from your mistakes. You are His workmanship. He is the One that will renew your mind and will bring you to the fullness of the stature of Jesus Christ. To know God and His Son, Jesus Christ, is to experience a love that is unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Jesus is your peace. Jesus is your forgiveness. Christ in you is the only life that you have after you have been born again. You are a new person in Him.

Gal 2:20,21
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

You too are crucified with Christ. Your sins were forgiven at the cross. God saw the sins of your entire life from the beginning to end and He forgave you. Simply receive His forgiveness. Do not live your life consumed and defeated by condemnation. Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away your sin. The punishment for sin does not fall upon you, because Jesus paid the price for all your sins at Calvary. Fall in love with Jesus, who suffered your punishment. Live victoriously in Him without any condemnation.

In everything give thanks,

Judy Carpenter

                                                                                BATTLE FOR THE SOUL                          Back to top

If Satan cannot stop you from being saved, He wants to keep you from knowing that Christ lives in you 100%. Thereby keeping you feeling defeated. You have all the benefits now and forever. You are a new creature or a person with a new nature belonging to a new race. However, Satan does not want you to know this. Satan likes to drive a wedge between your soul and your spirit keeping you from knowing about Christ living in you as your Spirit. Many Christians are not sure if Christ lives in them or just the Holy Spirit or both, or maybe His is not even there at all. They are not really sure how to divide the spirit, soul, and body. Neither do they understand the Holy Spirit’s purpose in our lives. How do I know that, because this was me for many years. You’ve got to get it straight in your mind to have the victory in this body. God created us to hear and receive this message of Christ in us as our life.

Eph. 1:4 According as he hath chosen us IN HIM before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

John 14:23
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.(KJV)

For many, Salvation came at a very young age, and for others later in life. When we were born into God’s family as a baby, we really didn’t have a lot of knowledge about what had just happened to us. Most of us, as a baby in Christ, grew up in a religious system that taught you all about the external Jesus or Jesus as the man, who walked the earth and did great miracles and healing. I love to hear the stories and read about the Jesus in the flesh, but these stories only testify of Jesus’ life here on earth, and what He accomplished. Many do not really understand all that was accomplished at the cross. Only the Holy Spirit can teach you as He reveals Jesus to you.

John 5:39,40
39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. (KJV)

We must come to know the resurrected Lord, who now lives inside of us in our spirit.

Our Father never intended for us to continue to look at the flesh man Jesus for the rest of our lives here on earth. You might be asking the question why not? As long as you look at the Jesus on the outside of you, you will never find the Jesus, who lives within you in your temple. So many in the world are doing just that! Looking on the outside of themselves among their kinsfolk and acquaintances trying to find Jesus. Going here and there saying, “Do you know” or “Can you tell me”. You will not find Him until you go within your temple and look for Him there. Jesus walked on the earth in the flesh, was crucified on the cross, and now He is a Spirit. Jesus died so He could redeem us and set us free with His beautiful Grace. Father’s intention is to replace our Satan nature with His Christ nature and to live in us as our life.

We are not to know Jesus or other Christians after the flesh.

2 Cor 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. KJV

The birthing is an exchange of natures, not a remodeling of your old dead nature. A birthed child of God can only have one Father. Truth is, many Christians spend their entire life trying to fix up the old man who is dead. The old carnal man cannot be fixed up. He is the enemy of God and cannot enter the kingdom of God. We can’t live the dead-life an enjoy it. The liberty and freedom is in Christ Jesus. God wants to put His Son in us as our only life, now that’s moving on in the Lord! Many people never move on. They just stifle the Holy Spirit as their teacher of the Christ in us, and sit in religion all the days of their life. Never knowing the many splendors of a loving relation with our Father and the oneness that we can have in Christ Jesus as He lives His life through us.

It is true that the number one need in the world is simply to believe in Jesus and be saved. Now that I have eternal life in me, the number one need is for my mind to become renewed, and to grow in the revelation knowledge of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirits job is to teach us nothing but Jesus.

John 26  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

You see, Salvation is not something you receive, or a thing. Salvation is a Person and it is Christ in you.

Put yourself in these shoes so I can paint you a painful picture. How would you like it if you had a child and after its birth you had to give it up to live with another family? You are still the parent, but you wouldn’t be able to have a loving two-way relationship with your child. You talk about tearing your heart out – that would do it. Most parents want to love their children and to be close to them. They commit their total life to being a good parent. Well, I said all that, to say this is how our Father’s relationship is with many of His children today. They look for Him in all the wrong places and live separated from the Christ In them. Our Father loves to see one of His children come home. I was a Christian for 40 years before I receive the revelation that Christ was in me. So, I was in the wilderness or a Prodigal Son Christian for 40 years before I finally came home to the oneness and union I have with the Christ in me. He was there waiting for me all the time. Now, isn’t that just like your Dad!

Heb. 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Christ cannot leave you or go in and out of you. Saved today and lost tomorrow. He is a one trip Savior, because Salvation is a Person, and it is Christ In You. Salvation is not gained by yourself-effort, but is the gift of God in the person of Jesus.

The riches and the glory of this great mystery of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a life of the Holy Spirit revealing to us nothing but Jesus.

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ In You, the hope of glory: KJV
In Christ Jesus,

School is in session on this one an eternity.

8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Eph 1:4

His spirit and yours is one.
1 Cor 6:17
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.KJV

Holy Spirit as the teacher
John 15:26
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:KJV

Holy Spirit will teach us about the Christ that lives in us. What a GREAT Spiritual life to have all those above victories and have oneness, union, communion and fellowship with Him. WOW!!

In Christ Jesus,
