We are a spirit who live in a body, and possess a soul. The Holy Spirit dwells within us. We contact the physical realm with our intellect, but we have a spirit that contact the spiritual realm.
12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
John 14:16-17; “16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[a]in you.’
2 Corinthians 5:17; “17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here!”
God will guide you by an inward witness; our own spirit does pick up bits from the Holy Spirit. Feelings is the voice of your body; reason is the voice of your soul; your conscience is the voice of you spirit. If you are not born again you can not trust your conscience, but once you become a born again spirit your conscience than becomes a reliable source. What you hear in the spirit becomes validated by God.
The means to check your validation are listed below:
1. Does what you hear require faith?
2. Does it go against the world beliefs? This should be yes.
3 Does it line up with the word of God?
4 Peace will rule your heart; does your thoughts bring peace?
5. Does it require courage? It should require courage in the world.
