Human Spirit is the Third and Most Vital Part of Mans Being
and obscured, there is an organ and faculty deeper within man
than his soul - it has remained a mystery
throughout all the ages. It is the unknown object of every
seekers search for reality and satisfaction. It is far
deeper than mans body and deeper than mans soul.
yourself you could never find it. You could meditate in your
mind but never find it. You could sit under a tree for hours in
the sun or shade, make vows, ponder and clear your mind of every
thought, recollect, concentrate, open up, hoping to be
enlightened, whatever… still you would not find it. That is
because the key to man is deeper than our soul and its
is Tri-part in His Make-up.
Thes. 5:23 …I pray God your whole spirit and
soul and body be preserved

is much misconception of the distinction between the soul
of man and the spirit of man,
in the world today, especially in the religious world yet there
is a very great difference in their purpose and function.
as the life-giving marrow as the source of life is twice hidden
in mans flesh and also then within the bone; hidden within
the body and the soul of man is deeper part, it is the
human spirit. The human spirit is so close to the soul,
so encased by the soul that it is often mistaken for the soul,
but it is not the soul. It is the spirit of man. Job 32:8
But there is a spirit in man: … Proverbs 20:27
The spirit of man is the candle (lamp) of the Lord
… Zech 12:1b …the spirit of man within him… Hebrews
4:12 … dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of
the joints and marrow…
and again comes the inner yearning, restlessness, a hunger for
fulfillment. It is a desire that emanates from our
unfulfilled human spirit. It is our empty spirit,
as a living and yet empty container, that gnaws at us,
desiring to be filled. If the human spirit is yet
empty while generating this desire and hunger, what does

God Himself, to be filled with God. God placed that desire in
mans human spirit that God and man might come to union.

is never satisfied because his deepest part still remains to
be filled with Gods very life and nature. Indeed, the
very purpose and function of man is …to receive, and be filled
with, the very life of God Himself. It is for this
purpose that man, unique among creation, was created with a human
spirit, the precise location and organ meant
specifically to relate to and ultimately contain the very life
of God who is The Spirit.
yes, our bodies make us to be world conscious, and souls to have
and communicate thoughts and have feeling, making us
self-conscious…but we have a human spirit to be the
correct organ to…receive… touch and… know God.

and be filled with God as the fulfillment of mans desire and
search for satisfaction by our spirit we have long desired completion.

is so available and so willing to fill the void that was created
in mans spirit especially to contain Him. Jesus now is the Spirit
of life in Christ Jesus (Rom 8:2, 2Cor 3:17a), and you have
a human spirit these were made to go together - in
you. 1 Cor. 6:17 But he that is joined unto
the Lord is one spirit.
