RSMI's Believers Bible Fellowship Notes Part Two

02/02/2011
Part Two
There Is an Identity Crisis in the Body of Christ. We don’t know who we are.


Who are you?
I Thessalonians 5:23
Spirit, Soul, Body= A three part being
Spirit = different from the soul
Soul= different from the body
Body = different from the spirit

When you do things or feel things, you need to know who you are to decipher whether or not it’s really you.

Hebrews 4:12
Only the Word of God gives the understanding of the difference between the three.
Spirit - Soul - Body - Heart

“When we find out who HE (Jesus) is,  We find out who we are."

Genesis 1:11,21,24,25,26,27
Law of Genesis =everything will only produce after its own kind
Ex: an apple will always produce another apple, an apple will never produce a monkey

How did God create you?
After HIS own kind!

John 4:24 “God is a Spirit….”
God is a Spirit, therefore you are a spirit.


Genesis 1:27
Male & Female created He them
Subdue & have dominion
We are eternal beings
We are born spiritually alive

Sin produces death. What is spiritual death? Spiritual Death is separation from God
We were separated from God but we are still eternal
Ex: When we die physically in our sins, we will spend eternity alive but separated from God, in hell.

God created you in His image (Spiritually)
The real you is a Spirit

Hebrew & Greek definition:
Soul: Mind, Will, Thoughts & Emotions
I am a Spirit I have a Soul and I live in a Body

Genesis 2:7
Formed=mold
Breath of life into the formed body
From Himself, He spoke Adam into existence, and placed him in a body.

v22 where did Eve come from?
He took her out of Adam.
-Adam called her Eve
-Eve had her own body
God created a family to have a relationship with Him. He created us to have a relationship with Him and to fellowship with one another in unity.

We were created to receive God, and give God to others
We were created to receive His love, and give His love to others.
We were created to receive His Spirit, and give His Spirit to others
We were created to receive His Word, and give His Word to others.

Unless we identify with who WE are, We will be deceived

We must be filled with Gods Word in our soul
The container that holds your Spirit is your soul
Eve was deceived

Adam was in the Transgression
This is when the Glory left

The battle is in our Soul
The first area of attack was Eves identity. Her identity was questioned (eat and be like God0
She was already like God
Adam did know and believed Gods Word, but choose to believe his wife’s word and acted upon it, over Gods word.

Romans 14:23 “…for whatever is not of faith is sin.”
Believing something other than Gods Word is Sin
Whatever is not Faith is Sin
Faith =Believing Gods Word

Ex: Nahman =became a believer
Did not believe in, or want to worship other gods
His master did. He had to go to ceremonies
To which he would have to literally do the act of bowing down, and worshiping his masters (man created) god.
As long as he did not believe that god or worship that god
from his heart, he was not committing sin.

John 3:3
Except a man be born again
Nicodemus identified with his body
Most people identify with their flesh as who they are

V5 I must be born of the spirit
V6 That which is born of Flesh is Flesh
      That which is born of the Spirit is Spirit

If you have been born again, you have been born of the Spirit(God) therefore You, the real you, is a spirit just like your Father!

Psalm 82:1-8
V6 Ye are, children of the most high God.

I am a spirit, I have a soul, and I live in a body while on this earth.
