"Truth will set you free."
Understanding of the truth of any spirit could be a very hard thing. However, to know the difference of different spirit is feasible through the understanding of what has been written in the Holy Bible.
As a Christ follower, I sought hard after a true meaning of the spirit. In the Bible, it was firstly defined as the breathe of G-d. Then, the word of spirit becomes an abstract term to me, and many other people. Some people deny the existence of any spirit, they called themselves atheists. Many other people acknowledge the existence of various kinds of spirits and choose to be spiritual or like spiritual. They called themselves various titles and names or religions. Even some consider to follow unknown aliens (different intelligent extraterrestrial beings). However, the Bible describes various functions and characters of what a spirit is. According to my own understanding, spirit is a core power to a human being body, like the power to a computer. Without spirit, human body could merely live with any good purpose. Just like a computer could not power up, what is good to keep it along? Describing one aspect of the spirit as a power cannot explain the existence of evil and good spirits. if all spirits are one kind of power like electricity, since electricity generated from different sources is essentially same. But spirits can be counterfeit. in order to describe what is counterfeit, an authentic spirit must exist in the first place. This spirit is the Spirit of the Holy G-d. Opposing to this one and only kind of Spirit, any spirit that mimics the function and power of this Spirit is counterfeit spirit. Do they exist or just a assumption? the Bible hints their existence in many places.
1. In Genesis 4, Cain killed his own twin brother Abel and was sentenced by G-d to wander on the earth. Hear what he said, "...I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me." As Christians, we believe that all recordings in the Bible are true. Then, who are those people whoever finds Cain would kill him? If we insist on Adam was the only human being created in the beginning and everyone was came after his lineage, how could these people coexist with Cain and Adam?
As I perceived from Genesis 1 and 2, I argued that there were different human beings created in the beginning other than Adam. Not so, they were created with a counterfeit spirit, which neither know the true G-d, nor can know the Truth.
The existence of such human beings with counterfeit spirit are defined as gentiles in the Bible in order to distinct them from the people after Adam's lineage.
2. In Gospel of Matthew 25, Jesus told a parable of ten virgins waiting for the Bridegroom. later the five wise ones told the other five foolish ones to buy oil for themselves. and they bought the oil and returned, but was refused by the Lord "I tell you the truth, I don't know you." Two critical points I would like to make them clear. (a) the purchased oil or spirit was not of that of Jesus. Why? Because the Lord Jesus Christ can not reject the ones who have his Spirit, for He died to save those who belong to Him. (b) the True Spirit could not be purchased or exchanged by any means. In the Bible, only demons and devils sell evil spirits and take others' corrupted or defiled spirits. however, they never can have the perfect and Holy Spirit of G-d. If they could sell it, it hints that they could sell portion of G-d. Can this be true if we believe that G-d exists and is the Only and One.
Therefore, there are counterfeit spirits both for human beings and some fallen angelic beings. However, I believe that creating angelic beings with counterfeit spirit could be much harder and restricted as angelic beings are constantly under the presence of the Almighty G-d.
This protesting board was intended to stir up the people's mind and thought to think who they truly are and to think what kind of spirits they have instead of whether they have any spirit.
The responses were very well while I was laboring in Downtown Vancouver area. Atheists, Muslims, Jews, and Monks stopped to ask some contradict questions, or proclaimed to me that he or she had no spirits, or very spiritual in other ways. However, the understanding of what and why they exist were very vain and skin deep. My heart was saddened deeply, would cry but could not cry when I was facing such reality.
May the Lord have mercy upon all of us. Amen.
