The three phases of our spirit. a) Conciliated: Preexistence. Before the foundation of the world. (Romans 1: 5/ Ephesians 1: 4/ Job 38: 4-7) b) Destituted: We were dead by the sin of Adam. (Romans 3: 10-12/ Ephesians 2: 1, 6) c) Reconciled: We were reconciled to God through the death of His Son. (Hebrews 10: 10/ II Corinthians 5: 18, 19/ Romans 5: 10, 11) d) The carnal man is the temporary man – Genesis 2: 7/ Job 14: 1, 2 e) The spirit is the eternal man – II Corinthians 4: 16/ Romans 7: 22/ Ephesians 4: 16

Final Word: We have two paternities: our spiritual father, who is God himself; and our father according to the flesh, who is mortal, imperfect and worldly.

So be, thus saith the Lord!
