The understanding of the Bible has become an ordeal the average believer cannot handle. There are innumerable voices trying to tell believers what they should understand as they study the Scriptures. Sadly, many of these voices or trying to get people to believe what they believe or, worse, trying to get them to join their program. Nothing wrong with programs except when they take away the primary message of who you are. Surely the Heavenly Father never intended to leave our personal relationship with the Lord in our study of the Scriptures to others who may not know our needs or personal walk in the Lord. It is my belief that any questions we may have with the Scriptures are best answered by the Bible alone. If we diligently search the Scriptures, they will explain themselves. The final gospel is most adamant about that. Paul, clearly lays out what we are to do about understanding the Gospel. He says plainly eight different times, in different ways, we are to follow him as he follows Christ. If we learn to do this most of our questions will be answered. Four instance, in first Thessalonians, fifth chapter, verse 23, Paul speaks of man being tripartite. This means Paul taught that there were three parts to the human: body, soul and spirit. Jesus gave this information to Paul and instructed him to pass it on to us. Such an idea, coming directly from Christ to Paul, explains some of the greatest questions humans come up with. Forexample, what part of the human is saved? Certainly not the whole human is saved at one time. When a sinner believes on Jesus Christ immediately Christ is joined to their spirit (1st Cor. 6:17), not to their soul and not to their body. Paul's meaning is clear salvation is man's spirit join to Christ's spirit, and, as a result Christ is all in all to the believer. We are never at no time Jesus Christ or any deity. At this point you must read the Scriptures clearly without the denominational glasses and see that we have been joined to Christ by a birthing. We now have a joint unto spirit. It is not just a union, as some say. It is Christ being the life of the New Creature. This joining together in Spirit constitutes a new man; it's a new person with the old man and old life passed away. I know at this point some believers would like to keep the old man, but he has been crucified. So do yourself a favor and do not drag the old dead man around, it's a real burden you will find out. This is more then a trip to heaven when a believer dies, it is the perfect work of God in completing the human being, Col. 2:10. The Christ-Life fits the human who seeks to become all He is in his salvation. A human is created as a vessel to contain Christ.
