What is the essence of life?

2020-12-10 13:37
While living, people have questions such as ; "What happens to a man when he dies?" or "Does a man really have a spirit"? or "Where does a man go when he dies?" This kind of questions have been a matter of great interest throughout human history, but no one has been able to answer them. So many people have put their efforts to find the answers to those questions but mere men could never get the answers.

It is only God who have the answers and can explain about the spirits of human beings.

Gen 2:7.... The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being....

The dust means body and the breath of life means the spirit. Actually the dust(body) itself is not the essence of life. God didn't name the dust itself a "living being." Only after God had breathed the breath of life(the spirit) into the dust, did He call it a "living being."

Through this, we can understand that the essence of life is not the flesh, but the spirit, the breath of life that God breathed into the dust. We can also confirm this fact through Jesus' teaching.

Matt 10:28 "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell."

In this verse, Jesus taught the death of body and the death of the spirit separately. A men's death can be separated into two events; the death of the flesh and the death of the spirit. Anybody can kill our body but it is only God who can destroy our spirit. It means that though our body dies and disappears after our death, our souls/spirits remain and live.

So, we should understand that the essence of life is not the body but the spirit.

    only God, the owner of our souls, can give the correct answers to that questions about soul. Actually, the Bible says that we were angels who lived in a glorous life with God but were cast down to the earth because of sin we committed in heaven. However, Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother has retored all things of truth of the new covenant which leads us to the kingdom of heaven for us. Thanks to Father and Mother.

    Amen. True ourselves are souls not bodies which are perishable.

  • 2020-12-10 15:19

    It's true. The essence of our life is the soul but not our body. So we must look at the Heaven where is our true hometown.

    The new covenant is the way back to the world of the soul and is the study of heaven.
    Everyone born on this earth is blinded by the sins of heaven and cannot see the spiritual world.
    Before I knew the new covenant, I also lived in the dark, trying to capture hopes like the wind, living only for physical life on this earth.
    The more we study the new covenant, the more our spiritual eyes open, we look to heaven and discover Christ.
    As Solomon wrote, God has filled our hearts that cannot be filled with anything on earth with Christ and salvation, the treasure of heaven.
    I am grateful to God Elohim for allowing spiritual joy and a new life of walking with God.

    That is water that we need the essence of our physical life. spiritual water is the essence of our spiritual life.
    The Spirit and the Bride give us the water of life in this age.

    • 2020-12-11 06:51

      Amen! For our spiritual life, Eternal life, we should seek and receive the Spirit and the Bride, Elohim God, who are the source of the living water. (Rev 22:17)

    We should live a spiritual life for the eternal life in the kingdom of heaven.

  • 2020-12-10 14:39

    The essence of my life is the soul.
    If we live only for the body on this earth and cannot prepare for the angelic world, how much regret will we be in front of the judgment after we die?
    we will have to live a life that prepares for eternal life.
    We truly thank God Elohim for allowing the Passover so that we can return to Heaven again and let us realize the soul.

  • 2020-12-11 04:43

    Right! The essence of life is the spirit. Therefore, we should prepare for the spiritual life. Let's prepare for it by keeping the New Covenant!

  • 2020-12-11 06:49

    That's right! If we realized the essence of life, we should become a wise man who prepare for entering heavenly kingdom where our spirit must go back.

  • 2020-12-11 09:11

    The essence of life is not the physical life but the spiritual life. Therefore, we have to prepare the spiritual life during living in this earth. Let's follow the teachings of God the Father and God the Mother and enter the kingdom of heaven.

    Human consists of the body and the soul. We just take care of our bodies, not the souls. However, now is the time to think about our souls which is the essence of life!!!

  • 2020-12-11 12:19

    Unfortunately, many people have no relish for this subject.
    God is pretty anxious to make us realize this spiritual thing.
    When people are indifferent to this subject, they just go after what is temporary and not everlasting.
    If anyone ignores this thing, then, he will not remain undisturbed before the judgment seat of God.
    His deeds will remain on God's memory!

  • 2020-12-12 15:51

    We must prepare to go back to our eternal Heaven!

  • 2020-12-11 15:49

    The criteria to judge "alive" or " dead" is whether there is a soul in a body or not. It means that a soul is the essence of life!

    Every creature should be approved as the living being. Every man is living but God Elohim don't accept that all of them are living. In the presence of God. Only God's people are approved as the spiritual living creatures. Let's all give our thanks to Heavenly Parents.

    Both the Old Testament and the New Testament teach us the soul and the spiritual world. Though we cannot see the invisible world, we can be confident that there is a spiritual world through Jesus' testimony.
    The fact that human beings have a place to return to after death makes our life more precious. It also makes me live and work hard, longing for a spiritual country. I hope all people focus on the words of God so that they come to realize the soul.
