You are not a physical person in a physical body, but rather you are a spiritual being in a physical body. Do you need to think about that for a minute? You are not a physical person in a physical body. You are a spiritual being in a physical body. We live in physical bodies, with physical senses, and we live in the physical world. It is hard to imagine being anything but a physical being.
Almighty God, who created the universe, is a Spiritual being. David tells us in Psalms 139:7 that the presence of God is everywhere, His spiritual presence extends to the end of the universe and beyond. He created the universe, therefore it cannot contain Him. He is the absolute ultimate spiritual being.
Spiritual beings are everywhere. God, the angels, and yes Satan and his demons are all spiritual beings. Not just in heaven, but on earth and probably anywhere in the universe if they chose. Therefore it is not unreasonable that we are also spiritual beings.
Genesis chapter one, verse 27 tells us that God created us in His image. “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
God is a spiritual being. He created us in His own image. He created us as spiritual beings, just as the Godhead, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all spiritual beings with spiritual bodies. He created us as spiritual beings with a soul. We are not purely physical, our souls are spiritual. The animals do not have a soul, they are purely physical. They live and die and that’s the end of them. We, however, will never die! Oh, our bodies will eventually waste away and die, but when that happens, it simply means that our spiritual being will be released from being imprisoned in these earthly bodies, and we will soar away to heaven.(more…)
