The Trinity of Man
By Rick Collins
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 can not 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 KJV28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man PERFECT in Christ Jesus:
(See Christ In You is PERFECT..)
Col 2:10 KJVAnd ye are complete (PERFECT) in Him, which is the head of all principality and power:John 17:23 KJV
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.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 KJVWhosoever 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.
1 John 5:18 KJV
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.)
In our SOUL- MIND is where we sin.
1 John 3:5-6 KJV
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.
(We abideth or live with HIM.)
1 John 1:8-10 KJV
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 KJV26 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.John 15:26 KJV26 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.)
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 and outward expressed to the world. If you don’t know that Christ lives in you as your life and your 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 an you do all the work until you're burnt out an empty. Who are we any way? 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 KJVThere is therefore now no condemnation (CONDEMNING) to them which are IN CHRIST JESUS, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
John 8:32 KJVAnd ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:36 KJVIf the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.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…
