Give Your Soul A Break

Your soul is your heart and mind.  If you are a Christian you have the soul of Christ because He has made His mind clear to us with the reading of the Word.  In John 8:51 (NIV) Jesus said,

Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death.

You cannot lose your soul permanently unless you reject it in which case it would be glad to have you accept it and you can choose again to accept and receive your own soul.

Your soul, which is Christ, guides and maintains the universe because it is the universe.  All things come from God and we are all a part of God.  Do you eat meat?  You are eating your own flesh.  We are all one.  That is why you are sick and disabled because you are rejecting your own soul.

Isaiah 9:20 (NIV) states:

On the right they will devour,
    but still be hungry;
on the left they will eat,
    but not be satisfied.
Each will feed on the flesh of their own offspring:

Our souls, Christ, is healthy.  In Christ there is no disease or sickness.  There is no curse for those in Christ.  If you are united with Him (your soul) you are beautiful and whole.  Don’t reject the voice that tells you “I don’t like that” because it’s your own soul.  That is the voice of Christ.

Cain was cursed for killing his brother and made to be a nomad.  Adam was cursed for eating forbidden fruit when he knew he shouldn’t have.  Since, man has been fallen because he has rejected his own soul.  The Bible said in Genesis 3:17 (NIV),

To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.

God doesn’t curse but your own soul will curse you if you hurt it.  Eve was given painful childbirth but no one is forcing Eve to have kids.  If she stays with Adam who is cursed she will also suffer in childbearing.  Her kids will also suffer because as we see, Cain, becomes a murderer and kills his brother.

Ah is a sound that means “please” and that is where we get the name Isaiah.  It is your soul or God speaking back to you.  I recommend reading Isaiah for a take on what is going on in the world.  When your soul talks, listen.  It’s always there.  Listen when it’s hungry, thirsty, sad or happy.

Romans 12:20 (NIV) states,

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

Heaping coals on someone’s head warms their heart.  That is your revenge.  Romans 12:29 (NIV) said prior to this statement, “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay.”  Since we are all one, a vengeful person will eventually eat their own flesh.  In Matthew 26:52 (NIV), Jesus said,  “Put your sword back in its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”  Jesus’ words are a double edge sword that helps us trim ourselves and others.  In Hebrews 4:12 (NIV) it says,

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
