This is the foundational teaching on the human spirit. In the nurturing your spirit basic seminar, you will find an abundance of tools as Arthur explains the different dynamics of the spirit and the soul and how to direct nurture past the soul to the spirit. After laying the biblical foundations for ministering to the human spirit other tools are explored. Each teaching is followed by a demonstration from the audience and a time of question and answers. This process allows you to get a good handle on each of the techniques so that you can begin to implement them yourselves.
Many people found the nurturing your spirit series to be mind blowing. A sort of ‘where have we been as Christians all this time?’ Another transformational teaching to add to your tool kit. This teaching will in no way disappoint.
You all know this verse Hebrews 4:12 the Word of God being sharper than a two edged sword dividing asunder soul and spirit. When I was six years old, I remember going to mom in the kitchen after family devotions one night to ask, 'Why would anyone want to? What’s the point of dividing soul and spirit? What is God talking about here?' My mother is a very wise woman and said son, go ask your father. Dad didn’t know either, the theologians don’t know.
We have finally come to understand that God intends you to be able to recognize four voices. To know the voice of God, the voice of the devil, the voice of your soul and the voice of your spirit. God intends you to separate out the voices of soul and spirit so that you can know when your soul is speaking and when your sprit is speaking.
We are going to do some exercises later today and some of you for the first time in your life will hear your human spirit and know that voice as distinct form that voice you are so familiar to of your soul. God intended you to differentiate between soul and spirit and that’s normal. Christians in third world countries will be listening to this and saying, ‘Well yeah’. But we western Christians have meshed them together and just talk about us the one inner being but in reality we are spirit and soul.
