I'm not to sure if Jesus saved us from anything? I believe that there isn't any war against the soul and the flesh! The war is for wealth and resources. The war is for life style. The SLAVE OWNERS have just morphed into the wealthy elite. US the people are the SLAVES. Now it's just like the man Malcolm X said..... There's the HOUSE SLAVES WHO GET THE CRUMPS FROM THE MASTERS TABLE and the FIELD SLAVES, like you and I who get the whip... High interest, debt, folk have to work 3 jobs just to survive. The field slaves in India make $9 for 12 hour day so that HOUSE SLAVES buy the NIKES and the STUPID BRAND NAME TATTOO'S for clothing and shoes at $300.00 a pair just like puppets, to keep the Masters House full WITH ABUNDANCE while you walk around with THESE MARKS... for the NEXT SET OF GAS CHAMBERS or a BIO-WARFARE or ATOMIC HOLOCAUST so that the MASTERS can CULL the populations and CAESAR has new territory to rape and pillage.... SIN what load of cogswallop..... There's no such thing!
Beware of quoting the Bible it was written by men hundreds of years after the events and contains the control and manipulation of the population and mythology. The fight for good or evil is within yourself and nowhere else. Inside the physical brain is the Holy Spirit and in today's terms, it is a quantum spiritual essence. The essence contains all physical and metaphysical memories in what scientists call a superposition. It is possible in dreams or otherwise for this essence to visit other realities that will be forgotten upon awakening. Even visiting the future has been realised and documented. The essence creates the mirror body on death. As an author, I have witnessed the future phenomenon that is explained in the book - Magical Theory of Life -and it can be viewed at - https://youtu.be/_xY5eeDpGgE
Soul= Your essence who you are.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became "a living soul." Gen 2:7. Man is soul.
Flesh = The body, the vessel that you i.e the soul uses to express itself in the material world. It could be likened to a container (body) which holds water (soul) i.e gives it shape. Water usually takes on the shape of the container that it is put inside. In like manner when soul incarnates "inside" the body, it identifies with it. It could also be likened to the clothing that you i.e the soul uses to clothe/cover itself . i.e without body, you are soul.
Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews. Job 10:11
Spirit= Life. God, The Spirit that gives the soul life/animation. God is Spirit. (John 4:24) God breathed his spirit into man's nostrils and man "became" i.e was transformed into a living soul. Without God, man is dead. When life
Many fine ANSWERS have been posted before this response, so rather than risking needless redundancy, I offer this LINK to a concise Scriptural insight on the subject @ mjthompsons.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/regarding-the-soul/. Peace!
Greetings, Golfer.. and to you and all.. Peace to YOU and YOURS! More than likely, there will be some (perhaps even MOST) who will disagree with me when I say, the 'soul' and the 'spirit' are the two primary immaterial aspects that Scripture ascribes to humanity. Keep in mind, when I use the word 'spirit,' I'm not talking about the HOLY Spirit! It can be confusing to attempt to discern the precise differences between the two (spirit and soul). The word SPIRIT refers only to the immaterial facet of humanity. Human beings have a spirit, but we are not spirits. However, in Scripture, only believers are said to be spiritually alive (1 Corinthians 2:11; Hebrews 4:12; James 2:26), while unbelievers are spiritually dead (Ephesians 2:1-5; Colossians 2:13). In Paul's writing, the spiritual was pivotal to the life of the believer (1 Corinthians 2:14; 3:1; Ephesians 1:3; 5:19; Colossians 1:9; 3:16).
Hello friend, "our fight isn't against flesh and blood." That's in Ephesians 6:12. It refers to spiritual warfare & explains the tools to battle the powers not of this world.
Whether the war is with soul vs. flesh, comes down to “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” “Spirit” refers to the soul of man or mind. “Flesh” refers to the human body and nature, with its moral and physical frailties. We know the right thing to do before God but fail to do it.
Yes, Jesus saves us. He cleanses us from all unrighteousness.
The sin nature is that aspect in man that makes him rebellious against God. We have a natural inclination to sin; given the choice to do God’s will or our own, we will naturally choose to do our own thing. Satan is always working to present us with a sinfully bad choices which appear to be good to us at the time, making God's Will less appealing to us. Satan is the embodiment of sin and is our enemy. Our war is with him and his followers.
Your soul is who you are. Your flesh is a temporary container for your soul. All animals live by survival instinct according to how their flesh is made. Humans are supposed to live by the Spirit of God but because of sin, humans are controlled by demonic worldly spirits that cause destruction. Only through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior can humans be set free from demonic spirits and the control of the flesh, and be brought into right relationship with God and have His Spirit leading you as you were created to live. When your soul departs this body of flesh, you will go wherever the spirit goes that is leading you. If you are led by the Spirit of Christ, you will go to God in Heaven where there is perfect peace and love and joy forever. If you are led by demonic spirits and the flesh, then you will go to Hell where the demons torment souls forever in an eternal lake of fire.
