And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:26-27 ¶

FEATURES OF THE REAL YOU (SPIRIT)
Spirits do not go extinct, they don’t stop existing. All those who have died have simply transited by breaking the tie with their physical body and are very much alive in the spiritual world. It is this characteristic of spirits that gives relevance to the Lake of Fire. It is going to be the permanent place of incarceration for those who during their lifetime on earth, lived in contravention to the directives of God.
It is your spirit that was made in the image and likeness of God and therefore always seek to satisfy that longing desire. It is this driving force in your spirit that moves you into all kinds of spiritualisms. However, it is only in Christ that this thirst is satisfied.
God is spirit, Satan is spirit and angels are spirits. Amazingly, you are also a spirit, roaming in the same realm with these forces all battling to have an influence over you. You have what it takes to determine who influences you: the power of your choice.
In the realm of the spirit, there is no greater influence like words. Words determine everything. The kind of words you give yourself to hearing constantly will determine the direction of your life. It can open the door of faith and shut the door against fear
Make time with the Word of God. When revelation knowledge of the Word takes over your spirit, then your spirit, in turn, will take over your five senses. It is at this point that your judgement and perception of issues change. Read the whole Bible, but dwell more in the New Testament and the Epistles are actually letters written to the church. It is in them you will discover God's plan of redemption. Meditate on these things because they take you on a lifelong journey of renewing your mind.
The condition of your spirit will determine the happenings in your life.
It all begins with salvation in Christ Jesus. If you have not yet committed your life personally to Jesus, may I give you the opportunity to do so now.
‘Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I am a sinner, I cannot help myself. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with your precious blood. Deliver me from sin and Satan, to serve the living God. Today, Lord Jesus, I accept you as my Lord and my Saviour. Thank you for saving me! Now I know, I am born again!’
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name John 1:12
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 1John 3:1

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Acts 16:31
