The Soul Exists

The Origin of Our Soul

A fundamental component of faith is the belief in the soul. Understanding the origin of the soul and where it came from gives us insight into where we are going and why we must believe in Christ.

“The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”

Genesis 2:7

“And the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”

Ecclesiastes 12:7

Through the verses in Genesis and Ecclesiastes, God lets us know the origin of the soul. God created us using dust of the ground, which represents the body, and the breath of life, which represents the soul or spirit. God gave us our soul. Our soul is our true essence giving life to our body. And our soul will return to God in the Kingdom of Heaven. This means that our soul previously existed in Heaven. Before our spirit came to Earth and took on the human body, we were in Heaven with God. And Jesus explained the reason we could not stay in Heaven.

Why We Are Here

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”

Luke 9:10 (NLT)

“Then he added, ‘Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: “I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.” For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.’”

Matthew 9:13 (NLT)

Our spirit was in Heaven with God and we sinned. As a result of the sins we committed in Heaven, we were born on the Earth to live a life that eventually ends in death.

“The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Roman 6:23 (NCV) 

Because of our sins deserving death, Jesus Christ came to Earth, preached repentance and taught us how to receive the forgiveness of sins.

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins.”

Ephesians 1:7 

Our life on Earth is our opportunity to prepare for our future. When we receive the blood of Christ through the New Covenant Passover, we can be forgiven of our sins (Mt 26:17–19, 26–28) and return to the Kingdom of Heaven.
