"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
I am a retired pastor of
the Church of God (Tennessee).
My name is Isaac Livingston. I am from Neyyoor India.
The real "we" are our "souls", and the soul is given a body as the house or tabernacle to live in. You may see the details in this link: "Soul". The body birth, or the flesh birth is a process, from conception to actual birth. As the body is given to the soul, a spirit is also given to the soul for those who will ask God for it. This spirit is the holy spirit and is also called as spirit of man. This experience is called born again or as born of the spirit. As the physical birth is a process, the born of the spirit is also a process. The spirit is born as a candle light and will grow to be as the sun, which is the glory of Jesus Christ. You may see details on this link: "Born Again", "Born Again video". The process of born includes "Born of Water" also, which is the abiding of the word of God to the soul. The details are on this link: "The Word". In the born of the spirit, the spirit is the Light, which God has created on the first day of creation. The soul was created on the sixth day. The spirit is given to the soul as tabernacle, as in 2 Corinthians 5:1-5. You will find the details on this link: "Holy Spirit lesson". Since it is big and important topic, I had to use more links for references. Sorry for the inconvenience. I hope that you will enjoy the study.
God Bless You
