Man is not tripetal in nature:there is nothing like man is spirit, soul and body, that is an error and misleading. Man is spirit dwelling in a body:the spirit and body is what make the single entity called man. I know people will argue because this contrast what many have been taught, that man is spirit, soul and body.. If I may ask you what is the human soul. Many people that I've discussed with, that strongly believed this tripetal concept couldn't not explain what the soul is. They say soul is your intellect and your emotions, mind, by this we can say man is spirit, (emotions, mind, intellect) and body. It's not surprising to hear such things because people tend to attach supernatural meaning or explanation to things they cannot see. You cannot see your mind, you can't see anger, happiness etc but you can feel them. That doesn't make it another entity in man. Part of the nature of God that man share is that he is an emotional being. You can see in different part of the bible that about God's wrath, anger, jealousy etc. So man also share this, since he is formed in the likeness or nature of God. Emotion is an expression of the spiritual being( man) is. Not another dimension in man. Emotions are expression of the body and of the spirit. Let me explain: When you hold hot red charcoal, in your hands it burn your hands and you feel the pain, and cry.. That's body induce emotion. When you are praying, or listening to spiritual song and you start crying or laughing, joyful. uncontrollable, you can't explain it. That's spirit induce emotions Or you're walking down the street, suddenly you felt heaviness in heart, and you're grieved in your spirit, not that anything or someone caused you pain or something, you're even enjoying your day an instant feeling happy before it happened,the spirit is trying to convey a message to you. That's spirit induced emotions. Mind is in your brain, your intellect is in your brain. There are part of the brain also responsible for different emotions. And the brain is part of the body. So we can see that the tripetal concept is wrong. Drug addicts use drugs to stimulate the domain in their brain responsible for some type of emotions,so they can artificially produce certain emotional effects. For instance heroine produce a sensation of love. The soul and spirit is mentioned interchangeably in the bible. That's why there's confusion about the two. When the Bible says the spirit it means the strict meaning of the spirit which we all know. But when it's says the Soul its talking about the spirit of man occupying the body of man. The form of the spirit when it's in the body in the physical realm is called the soul. When it's outside the body strict meaning spirit is attached. So we can see that man is a spirit dwelling in a body. It's written that Satan is after your soul, its does not make sense that all he wants your intellect, mind or emotions. Although I agree that Satan use them to get to us, if left unguided as loopholes. But that not his main agenda. (revelation 18:13),(revelation 20:3-4) Emotions are very useful tool in prayer,it's give content to prayer. So has Satan can use it if unguided to get access to you.Also you can use it to get to God, the choice in our hands. Emotions is wonderful thing and should not confused with the soul, imagine God forbid at the demise of loved one, one would just be be like robot no feeling nothing. I mentioned Satan agenda's earlier, Satan want to steal you from God, why is it steal not win you,reason is that you are the creations of God, he is your father.him only should you serve.. Satan have no right to father over you. He wants to steal your soul which God as given unto you,he uses different devices to stop you from connecting with Jesus Christ,(with life )thereby killing your soul. He knows he is going to be destroyed cast into the bottomless pit on the judgement day. He doesn't want to suffer alone he wants as many people who have given their soul to him to perish with him. (revelation 20:3-4) JOHN10:10:THE THIEF COMETH NOT, BUT TO STEAL, TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY :I AM COME THAT THEY MAIGHT HAVE LIFE AND THAT THEY MAIGHT HAVE IT MORE. ABUNDANTLY Surrender your soul to lord jesus christ now, at this moment..repent from your sinful ways now that you are graced to do so. God loves you, it grieves the father that men should die. Come to jesus and have eternal life. Come and be free from from every chain, bondage, yoke. He is beckoning to you now, the hour as come.
