Teaching on the Body, Soul and Spirit
In the morning while I was praying, the angel appeared and asked, “Would you like to see three parts of you?”
I said, “What do you mean three parts of me?”
He said, “Come here! Stand next to me and I will show you.”
With his right hand, pointing to the ground, the angel instructed me to look down. As I looked down, all of a sudden, I was astonished to see three of me lying down. I could see three identical images of myself, lying on the ground, side by side. I had never experienced this before.
I said, “Oh my Lord! What does this mean?’
“I will show you,” said the angel. “You see, the first one is your body. The second one is your soul. The third one is the Holy Spirit. Then you become one. This is how the Holy Trinity designed you. This is for all of you. It is the same for each person in the world.”
He then said, “This is designed by the most Holy Trinity. Your body is the temple of the soul and of the Holy Spirit. Woe to those who abuse the soul and the spirit. They abuse God’s grace. When your life ceases on earth, then the body remains on earth, but the soul and spirit return to God. They belong to God.”
We should look after our body, soul and spirit, and not abuse them. We should live a chaste life, and we must be grateful to the most Holy Trinity.
The angel said, “Many people believe that after they die, there is nothing. However, there is a body, a soul and a spirit.”
Sadly, it is true, many people believe that once a person dies, there is only the body, but there is also the soul and spirit which continues. That is why God wants us to be purified one hundred per cent, before coming back to Him.
Thank you, holy angel for explaining this to me.
Lord, have mercy. Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we thank you for giving us the gift of life and explaining this to us.
