HOW AND WHEN DO WE GET OUR HUMAN SPIRIT?

We can how Adam got his 'Image of God' (human spirit) See 'THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND'.  Now it just leaves the question of how do we get our Image of God into each one of our bodies? 

 

Here are 4 verses which show that God gave every one of us our human spirit while we were in the womb, and one verse which shows that God "forms the human spirit within a person".

Jeremiah 1:4; The word of the Lord came to me, saying, 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Psalm 139:13: For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Ecclesiastes 11:5; As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.

Galatians 1:15; But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his Grace,

Zechariah 12:1The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person…

MORE OIN THE HUMAN SPIRIT

The 'human spirit' (also referred to as "spirit" in the verses below) has been recognized, realized, accepted, and understood throughout the Old and New Testaments. Here are a few verses:

NOTE:  When the word "spirit" is lower case, it means the human spirit. 

When the word Spirit is capitalized, it is referring to God's Holy Spirit,

which comes to those of us who believe and ask Jesus for it.

The Holy Spirit is in addition to the human spirit.  We can each - potentially - have both.

Sometimes the translators have used the words 'human spirit, 'spirit' and 'soul' interchangeably, and that is why I refer to our 'spirit' as 'human spirit' and as a 'soul' when our human spirit is interacting with our bodies, as have many others.

Acts 7:59; They went on stoning Stephen

as he called on the Lord and said, 

“Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!”

Here Stephen is asking Jesus to "receive his spirit" (lower case = human spirit,).  In other words, Stephen knows he has a human spirit which is separate from his dying body and that Jesus will receive it.

Note: It is evident that Stephen is expecting his spirit to be received right away,

not in the thousands of years which is believed by some (soul sleep).

James 2:26; For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

James is letting us know that the body without "the spirit" (lower case = human spirit) would be effectively dead.

1 Corinthians 2:11;  For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them?

This verse is very specific and says “their own spirit (lower case) within them”.   What else could this be, but the human spirit?

NOTE: In the book God, Us, and Satan, there are so many more verses and pictures

on these subjects.
