Compelling and Competing Voices. (Part 1) 

Keeping God #1 in Your Business (PR_Vol_84)

(Galatians 5:16-26) [NLT]
16) So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.

In my last Press Release on the “Ultimate Identity Theft”, we established that each human being is a tripartite being (3 in 1) comprising of the Spirit, the Soul and the physical Body. In this Press Release series, I will discuss some attributes, influences, voices and impact of each entity in the life of a human being; both the Saved and the Unsaved. You will find that it is critical; what voices lead and guide you.

The Body: You contact and relate to the physical realm with your body. It is your earth suit; a required equipment for earthly existence. The devil is a spirit and even he realized that he needed an earth suit, so that is why he entered a serpent to physically engage Adam and eve (Genesis 3:1-15). He constantly looks for bodies to posses. If you went to space you would need a space suit. 

Your body is a slave to your soul. There is not an action that you have ever taken that did not first exist in your mind, and the voices of your body are your feelings of cravings, joy, sadness, lust, love, etc and your speech. (Matthew 12:34) “for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh”. Apostle Paul says, in (Romans 8:10) “If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin but the spirit is alive because of righteousness”.

The Soul: You contact and relate to the mental realm with your Soul. It is the seat of your mind, intellect, will and emotions. It is your thinker, feeler, chooser, analyzer, and personality. Your soul is different from your Spirit. (Hebrews 4:12) “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, …” They are not the same. 

Your soul is a slave to your human spirit. (saved or not). Your soul is also sometimes referred to as your flesh or your heart. The voice of your soul is your reasoning and rationalizing. When the word of God tells you to do something and you hesitate and start to reason and rationalize, you know that your soul is taking over.

The Spirit: You have a human spirit (Your Conscience) that is either dead or made alive, a slave and controlled by the Holy Spirit, or it is a slave and controlled by the devil; Depending on whether you are saved (born-again or not). Don’t take my word for it.

Consider this scripture and many others. (Ephesians 2:1-5) [NLT] 1) once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. 2) You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. 3) All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. 4) But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5) that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)” -  [Your spirit is the only part of you that got saved.] This is why Apostle Paul says to work out your soul salvation (Philippians 2:12)

God loves you so much that He freely gives you His Son and The Holy Spirit to guide you into a blessed lifestyle. He will fuse His Spirit to yours and guide you thereby. The voice of your spirit is your conscience. (1 Corinthians 2:12) “The Spirit of man is the candle of the Lord…”
(Proverbs 20:27) Your reborn sanctified spirit is also sometimes referred to as the
 “Inner man” What voices do you heed?

In (Part 2) I will cover how you know that you are listening to, and being guided by the Holy Spirit through your human spirit, so please stay tuned in.
