SOZO



We also are Triune : Spirit, Soul and Body
 

The word SOZO translated into English means Saved, and we usually consider Saved means to be Born Again in our Spirit. 

However in the original Greek language it has a deeper meaning that takes in the entire person: SPIRIT, SOUL and BODY.

When Jesus died and rose again, he enabled us to experience Salvation in our spirit, also Healing for our human body, and healing for our Soul (soul defined as “Mind, Will and Emotions.”) 


The soul is in your Head
Your spirit is in your Heart !
Some Christians in error believe the soul is what gets spiritually saved, but the truth is that our soul is in our head.  (Our Mind, Will and Emotions).

The spirit is in our heart.

 
We are in effect a triune person:  It is good to remind ourselves, “I am a Spirit (that unseen Real person which lives inside me) and that part of 'ME' dwells in my body (tent house) and I have a Soul.”  The Soul is where we usually have our problems.   Our thought life and our emotional outlook, and our will.
 
 Our wills are stubborn, and we desire our own way, and of course our emotions tip every which way at once like a teeter totter.

 
Our will must be given to Jesus first before we act on our own.
Not my will but thine be done!  We struggle with our emotions our fears and self doubts and our soul is in need to be redeemed.

 
Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.   
 

This is where the Word of God comes in and reading our Bible is important to renew our mind.  It is important to Memorize portions of scripture that speak to you and say them with your mouth to yourself when in trouble.  It is good to hear yourself say God's word.

 
So many of us hurt in our physical body, and although we realize that Jesus wants us well and healthy but this brings us a definite struggle when we do not immediately receive a miracle for our body.

 
Those who walk in miracle ministry tell us that as we seek the presence of Jesus that we enter into the supernatural where miracles happen. 

We cry “How long?” and God answers back, “It takes time for a birth and I am developing it.”

  1. As I was reading the words of Christ to His disciples popped into my mind, "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak." How long indeed, sister. Deep post... early thinking is painful! (kidding!)

  2. This was wonderful, Hazel. It's interesting to me that we are actually created in the image of God - and we do indeed possess body, soul, and spirit. I like the idea that the *real me* will never die!

    I also like the idea that God is *birthing* something in me - a new creation - fashioned to look like His Son! May it be so!

    GOD BLESS!
