Advisory: The editorial board of HNewsWire adopted the official policy to bypass many social media platforms. Some of these include: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Parler, and YouTube. We believe these companies are responsible for many of the spiritual ills our world faces today. In some cases, however, we have allowed our guest contributors to include content from their YouTube channel while we search for alternatives.

This is what Jesus told the woman at the well when He said, “…Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:13,14.
The notion that one can die spiritually is another abominable by-product of the doctrine of original sin’s false narrative. Because that false narrative teaches salvation by works. But, as we just saw Jesus tell the woman in John4:13,14 there is no such thing as spiritual death. Because He said to her when we have drink from the water Jesus gives we have eternal life. Eternal life is eternal, not just until we do or think something bad. Hence the word eternal life.
So like the “sin nature” that is a derivative of the doctrine of original sin, the phrase “spiritual death” is also not found anywhere in the scripture. And just as the false doctrine of original sin must be read into the scriptures by falsely assuming that Adam was spiritual when he was made, so this false belief is read into the scriptures through the deception of the doctrine of original sin.
But, from what we saw Jesus say to the woman at the well spiritual death is an impossibility. Because once having drunk His water, once we have been born again, we have eternal life and there is no way to be un-born again.
The confusion known as spiritual death starts with a misunderstanding of the creation account in Genesis and Paul’s gospel. Because contrary to what the doctrine of original sin teaches, Genesis and Paul’s gospel teach that Adam did not possess a spirit when he was made. Nor does anyone who has only had the fleshly water birth from his mother’s womb.
This is why Adam is called a living soul in Gen.2:7. And not a living spirit. And why Paul said “that which was first(Adam)was not spiritual, but natural. And afterward(Jesus) that which is spiritual.” 1Cor.15:45,46. This is why Rom.8:6 says “to live after the flesh is death. But, to live after the spirit is life and peace.” Because to live after the flesh is to live only by what the natural senses tell us. But, to live after the spirit is to live in relationship with God and what He tells us.
To “live after the spirit” is life and peace because the spirit birthed in man when he is born again is forever joined with God by birth and will always live in His love, joy, peace, and the Holy Spirit. This is why to live after the spirit, which every man that has been born again grows in as he relates to God and God relates to him, is life and peace.
A man who is born of the Spirit lives after the spirit. He has been born a second time. Born again as Jesus said in John3. Because as Jesus plainly said “What is born of the flesh is flesh.” This birth pertains to those who only have the first birth from our mother’s womb. The birth that makes us natural just like Adam was when God made him. “And what is born of the Spirit is spirit.” This pertains to those who have been born the second time by the Spirit of God. Where we become a new creation wherein “old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” as Paul said in 2Cor.5:17.
Only those who are born of the Spirit inherit the kingdom of God. Because only those who are born of the Spirit of God are spiritual children and therefore heirs of God. The flesh can not inherit God’s kingdom because God’s kingdom is only for those who are His children by the spiritual birth. The flesh can not live after the spirit because it is only flesh and therefore is only suited for and can only relate to what has been made. And the spirit is not limited to only relate to what has been made as the flesh is because it is spirit.
This is why Paul taught that the flesh is at enmity with the spirit. Not because the flesh is evil and the spirit is good as pagan Gnostics that teach the sin nature doctrine believe. But, because flesh and blood are not spirit. And only those who are spiritual can relate to the Spirit. And because God’s kingdom is a spiritual kingdom only those who are spiritual can live there.
In Luke 5:34-39 Jesus gave a parable saying when new wine is placed in old wine bottles the bottles perish. And when new cloth is put on an old garment the same thing happens. Jesus was telling them that the new wine which is the spirit birthed in us, will exist in these old wine bottles which is our natural bodies, until our bodies, the old wine bottle or garment, perishes. After which we will put on the new one in the resurrection. The resurrected body.
This is why those who are truly in God’s family need never to fear death. Pr.28:1 says “the righteous are bold as lions”. This is because God empowers us by His Spirit. It’s not the strength of man’s own arm that gives him the kind of courage it takes to face down the power of death. It’s God by His spirit that He has birthed in us that gives us this power.
But, those who have not been born of the Spirit have not God and so they have no spirit in them. And though they may at times outwardly make a show of great bravado, some even having a form of godliness, even the most frail woman who is a strong believer will have greater courage and godliness than them. Because as Heb.2:14,15 says they are only flesh and live in the fear of death all their lives. This is because they are natural beings like Adam was when he was made that Paul said in 1Cor2:14 can not relate to spiritual things.
Once a man is born again he can not be un-born again. He can never return to being only a natural being who lives in the fear of death as the unbeliever does. He is related to God by birth now. And as such is and will remain His child forever living by the power of the Spirit. In the knowledge that death is only when we pass from this life into the next. So for those who have drunk from the water Jesus gives there is no fear in death.
As a natural man we are not spiritual and are subject to death. But, the spirit is not subject to death. Because once we are made a spiritual being by the new birth we are forever an immortal child of God and heir to His kingdom. And are no longer subject to death. This is why there is no such thing as spiritual death. And why the believer in Jesus should not fear death. Because he that is spiritual has drunk from the water Jesus gives. And he shall never die because Jesus has given to him eternal life.
Would you like this assurance? Would you like to be a child of the living God? Never to be left or forsaken? And never again to live in the fear of death?
All that is needed for this to happen is for you to trust in Him with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength as Jesus said. Confess Jesus as Lord. And believe that He has raised from the dead. If you do believe in Him then say to Him, I believe in you. And no longer will I seek my own will Lord. But for your will to be done in my life. Thank you for joining with me in my death. So that I could join with you in eternal life. Thank you for saving me from death to life by your resurrection. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
If you do that He will give you a new spirit that you never had before. So that now you can hear His voice and trust in Him. And know the power of God. And be heir to His kingdom. With the Holy Spirit as His seal to lead and guide you in all truth. And that you are His and He is yours forever.
See you there or in the air!
