Hi everyone and welcome!  This is Virginia Franklin.  To find out more about me click here.

Below are several small excerpts from my new book called 'GOD, US, and SATAN' which is over 200 pages long and will be officially published this year, 2021.

About this book.  GOD, US, and SATAN' is the culmination of intense study, digging into ancient and modern Hebrew, ancient and modern Greek, Aramaic, the Dead Sea Scrolls, other various discoveries, history, and translational differences/opinions between Hebrew, Greek, and in English. The pictures are illustrations of this truth and were made specifically to make the truth easy to understand.  This book has taken a total of 7 years.


There is a huge amount of misinformation, confusion, and opinion, about who and what the 'human spirit' is (also known as 'spirit', 'being', or 'soul'). 

In my book 'GOD, US, and SATAN' and below, I use the term 'human spirit' instead of 'spirit', as do many others, because it can get confused with Spirit (capitalized - which is God's Holy Spirit).  I also explain the subtle difference between the 'human spirit', 'being', and the 'soul'.

When writing this book, I have been deliberately ignoring other's opinions, biases, and rumors.  I have had to dig deep into ancient and modern languages to establish and verify what God meant when He said it.   This book is what I unearthed.  Initially, I did this for myself in order to understand God and His book the Bible.  At a certain point of understanding and relief, I thought I would share it with you so that you could see for yourselves the truth as I found it.

Dear reader I want you to discover, along with me, God's Word in its raw form, without schools of thought, partiality, or prejudice draped over His word.

Let's first of all, see what happened the few days before God created the body for Adam and later on, for Eve. 


God created a whole environment to put His special man and woman into.

THE BEGINNING: The first seven days of God's creation:

  1. ​The first day heavens, waters, day, and night were created (Genesis 1:1-5)

  2. The second day - the sky, morning, and evening were created  (Genesis 1:6-8)

  3. The third day - dry land, seas, seed-bearing plants, vegetation, and fruit trees were created (Genesis 1:9-13)

  4. The fourth day - the Sun, Moon, and stars were created (Genesis 1:14-19)

  5. The fifth day - creatures that live in the sea and creatures that fly were created and blessed (Genesis 1:20-23)

  6. The sixth day - living creatures, livestock and wild animals, and 2 human spirits - made in the image of God - were created (Genesis 1:24-31)

  7. The seventh day - God finished his work of creation and rested, blessing the seventh day and making it holy. (Genesis 2:1-2)


NOTE: Genesis was written in Hebrew.  If you want to study the direct translation, from Hebrew into English, then I recommend you go to  Since there are so many translations of the Bible, it is sometimes a good idea to study the original.

On day six right after God has created animals, 'God is saying “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness so that they may rule over....”  My first question for myself was "Let us"?  To whom is God talking?  (see below)

Geneses 1:26; Then God said,“Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

God who does not exist in a human fleshly body,  is creating a “male and female” in His image.  Since God and Jesus (who God was talking to) were both Spirits, the “male and female” creations would have to be spiritual. ("in our image" Genesis 1:26 above).


Proverbs 8:22-23; The Lord brought me forth as the first of His works, before his deeds of old;  23 I was formed long ages ago,

at the very beginning, when the world came to be.

We can see from this verse that Jesus said: "The Lord brought me forth as the first of His works,". 

Since Jesus was "the first of His works", "Let us"  must be God and Jesus.  God is talking to Jesus when He says "Let us".

Geneses 1:27; So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them.

God creates His male and female spirits in His spiritual image (Genesis 1:27) 

Picture credit;

God tells His newly created male and female spirits about the world they are about to inherit - when they have bodies - and gives them instructions;

Genesis 1:28; God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Genesis 1:29; Then God said, “I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They shall be yours for food.

Genesis 1:30; And to every beast of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground, where there is life,  I have given every green plant for food. And it was so.

TWO SPIRITS COLLAGE what they are going

Picture credit; & &

In Genesis 1:28, God tells His newly created 2 spirits about the world He is about to give them, and for them to "increase in number; fill the earth" and to "rule over" all His newly created animals and creatures. 

In Genesis 1:29, God is telling His 2 spirits, about the food He has for them when they have earthly bodies.  He says "I have given you every seed-bearing plant" and "tree that has fruit with seed in it".  He then says "they shall be yours for food".  They cannot eat yet because they are not in human bodies.

In Genesis 1:30,  God further tells these 2 spirits that He has also provided food for all the animals /birds/creatures "I have given every green plant for food".  

In other words, it is not necessary for these 2 spirits (since they are going to "rule" when they have bodies) to be concerned/worried about what every living creature will have for food, including themselves.

God now rests on the 7th day. He has created everything necessary for the self-sustaining of life on earth. Plus He has created 2 spirits which will rule over the life He has created when they have human bodies.

Next, God puts in streams which "watered the whole surface of the ground."

Genesis 2:5-6; Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 6 but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.

Mankind began here: 

Now we are up to Genesis 2:7 where God creates a human body for the male spirit He has created.

NOTE: God creates a body for the female spirit later in Genesis 2:22.

It's a simple verse, but it is packed with meaning.  It is actually in 3 parts. 

Genesis 2:7; And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 2:7; And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

GENESIS COLLAGE part 1 canva.png

This picture is God forming a body for the man spirit (for His male image created in Genesis 1:27) from the dust of the ground (God creates a body for the female later in Genesis 2:22).

This body at this time is not living.  It is in Step #2 below that this occurs.

GENESIS COLLAGE part 2 canva.png

This picture is God breathing the "breath of life" into the man's body to make it living as he had done with all the other animals.  See Usage Note for Breath of Life.


NOTE: Usage of the term: "BREATH OF LIFE". 


Geneses 7:22; Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 

We can see from this usage that 'breath of life' refers to the physical bodies of creatures, animals, and humans.  It does not address the spiritual.

GENESIS COLLAGE part 3 canva.png

At the same time as breathing "the breath of life" into the body to make it living (above)God puts His Image (created with Jesus in Genesis 1:27) into the now living body.


and the body becomes not only LIVING but also a SOUL. 


NOTE: This is a living body with the attributes of God because the living body now has God's Image within it.

NOTE: "living soul" in various translations is used interchangeably with "living being" and "living creature". The actual translation from Hebrew is 'soul'.  Translation verification.

This was the reason God created a male body was for His "image" who would help his man  rule all the other animals and creatures.

The addition of God's Image (Genesis 1:27) would make mankind different and superior to animals, birds and creatures, so he could rule over them, because he was not only living with a genetic program, as they were, but had  God's Image inside him (see Genesis 1:27, 1:28,1:29 and 1:30 above).

Just using pure logic, God would have to give this fleshly body + brain (with only a genetic program) something to make it superior to genetic animals, birds, and creatures in order for it to "rule" over them (Genesis 1:28, 1:29, and 1:30 above


This 'something' would be “His image” which has similar attributes as Himself (Genesis 1:27), to be able to accomplish these tasks.



God created a male and female spirit (in His image).  God is a spirit, therefore any image of Himself would have to be spiritual.  God then created a body from the dust of the earth - breathed into it the breath of life to make it living, (as He had done with all the various types of animals, birds, and creatures.)  God then simultaneously infused the now living body with 'His image' to make an intelligent, sentient, being who could rule over the birds and over all the animals and creatures that moved on the earth.   

How do we get our human spirit?:  We can see how Adam and later, Eve got their spirit.  Below, it shows below it shows how each one of us get our spirit (human spirit).

FETUS IN WOMB canva self com.jpg

Jeremiah 1:4-5; 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.”

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 gives every one of us our human spirit while we are in the womb, and one verse which shows that God "forms the human spirit within a person".

Ecclesiastes 11:5; As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything.


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

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.

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…

Much more on this exciting subject is in the new book God, Us, and Satan.

FETUS pngwing.png


This is a human spirit given to each of us in the womb by God.

This is the body with the human spirit in it. 


It is now called a SOUL because of its association with the body and its brain


This body/brain is a mega survival recording system of all of its current and preceding genetic past recorded on it's cells. (DNA)

Photo credit

Here is the body/brain with both the human spirit and God's Holy Spirit, if you have one.  (SEE 'HOLY SPIRIT' below &' THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU, YOUR MIND, AND THE BRAIN' below)


When the pure human spirit gets put, by God, into the fetus of a pregnant woman, it becomes impure by association with the body+brain and its cellular genetic recorded past.   


Since the death of  Jesus, we can have, in addition to the “human spirit” (Given to each one of us in the womb), we can also have the Holy Spirit, provided we ask Jesus for it  and believe.  The Holy Spirit is sent to us to guide and work with our human spirit

This is Jesus talking to his Apostles letting them know that He will be sending them an Advocate (The Holy Spirit) and how He cannot send the Holy Spirit unless He leaves (to join his heavenly Father).


Galatians 2:20; I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

BRAIN attributes apr 2021 canva.png


Galatians 5:19-21The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Romans 8:5-6; For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

Corinthians 2:14;The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.

1 John 2:16; For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.

DEFINITION: The brain and the mind The brain is an organ but the mind isn't. The brain is the physical place where the mind resides. ... The mind is the manifestations of thought, perception, emotion, determination, memory and imagination. Mind is often used to refer especially to the thought processes of reason.


Galatians 5:22-24:  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Galations 5:6; So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, 

Ephesians 6:12; For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

HEALING flaming text crille.png

Isaiah 53:5; But he was pierced for our transgressions,   He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by His wounds, we are healed.

By His wounds, we are healed

This is the Law of Grace.

Picture credit: & &

Notice the wording is in the past tense. (check out the direct Hebrew/English translation "we are healed") It does not say 'will' be.  It said, "we are".  If you are afflicted in any way and you have accepted Jesus as your personal savior, and you have the Holy Spirit indwelling you, you can boldly declare: “By his stripes, I am healed”! 

Andrew Wommack has been my inspiration for this section.  This is a good introduction to Andrew.  God wants you well:  It is a series He can be found on Youtube or 


FAITH canva.png

Proverbs 23:7;  "For as he thinks within himself, so he is."

No one, including the Holy Spirit indwelling us, can help us if we waiver and are double-minded.  (See James 1:8; A doubleminded man is unstable in all his ways.)

Mark 11:24-25Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

It says that "whatever we "ask for in prayer" we "will receive", if we "have faith". so what happens if we pray and we don't receive?  It has to have something to do with our unbelief.  Unbelief can cancel out faith.


THE MOUTH collage canva.png

Proverbs 18:21; the tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

If "the tongue has the power of life and death", then it would mean what we say becomes real, especially if we get agreement from others.  Here is Jesus talking about agreement: “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. Matthew 18:19

Proverbs 21:23; Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity.

It's a difficult one.  For a while we might have nothing to talk about.  LOL.  What I did was listen to others and find solutions to their problems if that is what they wanted.  Some, as we all know, like their problems.

Matthew 15:11; What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”

"What goes into someone's mouth" (like food) "does not defile them" (See definition of 'defile' below), "but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them." 

Definition of 'Defile':Merriam Webster

  1. to make unclean or impure.

  2. to corrupt the purity or perfection of : DEBASE.

  3. to violate the chastity or virginity of .

  4. to make physically unclean especially with something unpleasant or contaminating.

  5. to violate the sanctity of 

  6. DISHONOR defile his reputation.                 

I know people who each day go around and share with everyone how sick they are and their various problems.  I guess they get some kind of gratification from sharing, but they are unwittingly 'defiling' their own bodies and life; and are putting more and more nails in their coffin.  One person actually said to me "It's only natural to get sick."

Romans 3:20; Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.

Under the Law of Moses, there were so many rules and penalties, people automatically became sinners.

Today, there are many people who do not know of the fact that since Jesus we are given the Law of Grace, where we are released from the restrictive and condenming Mosaic Law.

Much more on this exciting subject is in the new book God, Us, and Satan. 

You can see the chapters here.

Matthew 16:24-27; Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.



Picture credit:

Jesus is talking about our "soul" as different from the human world which would include the body/brain/flesh.  Then it goes on to say how the "soul" will be rewarded "according to what they have done".  Which means the soul must live on after body death. 



There are various theories (see 1-4 below) about who or what is going to be judged on Judgement Day for its life choices.  This is what I found by looking at scripture about Judgement Day. We can see by process of elimination who or what is going to be judged:

  1. The body + brain (flesh)?

  2. The Holy Spirit?

  3. The heart?

  4. The human spirit?

Let us look at the Bible to discover the truth.  We will take up each one of these four.

Do we go to heaven right away?

NOTE: over the years 'heaven' and 'paradise' have been used interchangeably.  I have called 'heaven' the waiting place for the spirits who are waiting for Judgement Day and Paradise the place they go after Judgement.  I have not taken the time (maybe later) to locate the Bible verses necessary to establish which is which.  But we can tell there is a place where 'waiting spirits' go.  Certainly, this information will be in my book God, Us, and Satan.

Criminal going to  heaven/paradise that same day.:

Luke 23:39-42; One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Here Jesus is talking to the criminal being crucified beside Him.  He lets him know that "TODAY" he will be in paradise with Jesus. 

It doesn’t say anything about any time lag or I'll see you in several thousand years, as some belief. (soul sleep).

JUDGEMENT DAY collage canva may 2021.png

I believe in miracles and that miracles are given to us daily by God through His Holy Spirit.  I have so many I could tell you about.  Instead, I am going to write a separate book about those which have happened to me and others.

There are some who believe that miracles died with the apostles.

If miracles died with the Apostles, then it would mean the rest of the Bible died then too.  If we believe the Bible, it is impossible to exclude some parts of it.  The whole Bible either all lives or doesn't.

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.  Whenever 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.

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?

As we can see a woman is very happy on the beach.  All is going well.  This is when demons like to attack.   They come to lie, cheat, steal and destroy. 


Demons like to work with the brain, effectively having it go into worry. 


Demons can also take over body parts and make them SEEM painful. 


The woman above goes into worry. worry and more worry.  After a while, the woman goes to to the doctor. 


The woman having worried for several months has CREATED the cancer that she gets diagnosed with. 


I know it can be hard to believe, but it is all over the Bible about what you believe will occur.  I will look up some verses and put them in this section. 


It is not the doctor's job to show or demonstrate to you the power of your mind along with the Holy Spirit. 


The doctor's job is to examine what you have done to your body with the power of your mind.

Regarding Satan and his demons, there has been a very extensive study done along with valuable resources, so watch for  more that will be said on this subject, not only here but in the New Book God, Us, and Satan.

John 10:10; The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Satan "comes ONLY to steal and kill and destroy".  Jesus is telling us the truth.


A short essay on the body and the material ("seen") universe.


Picture credit &

Taking care of the body consumes most of our life, as we maneuver the body to help it survive by keeping it just the right temperature, undamaged, intact, and protected from harm.  Plus making money to drive it around, feed, clothe and house it.  And then there is differentiating its emotions and feelings from ours. Not to mention having to put it to bed 1/3rd of its life. 

So, body/s and keeping it/them healthy and alive becomes very important to us and there is a lot of attention on bodies; how they look and don't look, feel, etc.  Although bodies can be great, the reality is that which is 'seen' has the least importance, because it is going away and will not be here at all.  The body, every day it lives, is gradually decaying to its eventual ground destination, and the material universe around us that we see and place so much importance upon, crumbles the same way.

That is why it is vital to concentrate our efforts on that which is 'not seen'.


2 Corinthians 4:18; "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." ... For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal."
