5065 spirit, fallen and redeemed

5065 spirit, fallen and redeemed

Every aspect of the human personality, including the spirit, was affected by the fall. At regeneration the human personality is transformed by the Holy Spirit.

The human spirit is directly created by God

Nu 16:22 See also Isa 42:5; Zec 12:1; Heb 12:9 “human fathers” is literally “fathers of our flesh (bodies)”, i.e., there is an antithesis between those who are the fathers of people’s bodies and God, who is the Father of their spirits. Thus bodies are derived from parents but souls from God.

The human spirit was affected by the fall

Jer 17:9 See also Ge 6:5; Ps 64:6; Ps 78:37; Mt 15:19 pp Mk 7:21; Eze 18:31

The human spirit is renewed by the Holy Spirit at regeneration

Eze 36:26-27 See also Ps 51:10; Jer 31:33; Eze 11:19; Jn 3:6; Ro 8:10; Gal 5:22-23

The regenerated human spirit beyond death

It is perfected in heaven Heb 12:22-23 See also 2Co 5:8

It is incomplete without a resurrection body Ro 8:23 See also 2Co 5:1-4
