Default The Threefold Nature of Man

Surprisingly ,

Man is a THREEFOLD BEING.

Body (soma) -Hurt is experienced in sickness, weakness, Disease, Pain

Soul (psyche)-Hurt is experience in Mental Anguish, Emotional Instability, Paralysis of Will

Spirit (pneumatic) - Hurt is experience in Emptiness, Hoplesssness, Futility, Lostness, Loneliness

The SOURCE of the may be in any one of these three realms, But the HURT affects the WHOLE person.

The soul and the spirit are not the same:
Hebrews 4:12
1 Thessalonians 5:23

If the soul and spirit are not the same what then is the difference?

Luke 13:11 ( example of a physical, or bodily, demonic affliction)


Matthew 17:15,18 (example of a mental, or soul, demonic affliction)
Our spirits are born again!

2 Corinthians 5:17
Romans 6:2-6
Ephesians 2: 1-3
Ephesians 5:26
Ours souls are not born again:

1 Peter 1:22-23
Romans 12:2

In the natural, the spirit realm cannot be seen of felt. The only way to accurately perceive spiritual truth is though the Spirit as He reveals Yahweh’s word.
John 6:3

II. "BODY AND SOUL BUT TRULY ONE"

362 The human person, created in the image of God, is a being at once corporeal and spiritual. The biblical account expresses this reality in symbolic language when it affirms that "then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being."229 Man, whole and entire, is therefore willed by God.

363 In Sacred Scripture the term "soul" often refers to human life or the entire human person.230 But "soul" also refers to the innermost aspect of man, that which is of greatest value in him,231 that by which he is most especially in God's image: "soul" signifies the spiritual principle in man.

364 The human body shares in the dignity of "the image of God": it is a human body precisely because it is animated by a spiritual soul, and it is the whole human person that is intended to become, in the body of Christ, a temple of the Spirit:232
Man, though made of body and soul, is a unity. Through his very bodily condition he sums up in himself the elements of the material world. Through him they are thus brought to their highest perfection and can raise their voice in praise freely given to the Creator. For this reason man may not despise his bodily life. Rather he is obliged to regard his body as good and to hold it in honor since God has created it and will raise it up on the last day. 233
365 The unity of soul and body is so profound that one has to consider the soul to be the "form" of the body:234 i.e., it is because of its spiritual soul that the body made of matter becomes a living, human body; spirit and matter, in man, are not two natures united, but rather their union forms a single nature.

366 The Church teaches that every spiritual soul is created immediately by God - it is not "produced" by the parents - and also that it is immortal: it does not perish when it separates from the body at death, and it will be reunited with the body at the final Resurrection.235

367 Sometimes the soul is distinguished from the spirit: St. Paul for instance prays that God may sanctify his people "wholly", with "spirit and soul and body" kept sound and blameless at the Lord's coming.236 The Church teaches that this distinction does not introduce a duality into the soul.237 "Spirit" signifies that from creation man is ordered to a supernatural end and that his soul can gratuitously be raised beyond all it deserves to communion with God.238

368 The spiritual tradition of the Church also emphasizes the heart, in the biblical sense of the depths of one's being, where the person decides for or against God.239

Indeed.

Your spirit cannot be touched by anyone or anything but YAHWEH. He will NEVER let the enemy have at your SPIRIT. AND is Quickened for those He seeks and those that accept and BELIEVE Him as the Father, The Son, and Holy Spirit. If not, your spirit is just like when we came into the world
