Today is Tuesday April 5 2022, and in the word of God for today on this platform we are going to the 2 elements that make up a human being.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathe into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.(Genesis 2:7)
Now if we make a distinction between these two things that make up man i.e. the dust of the ground and the breath of life.
We will come to understand that ‘the dust of the ground’; is a non-living thing while ‘the breath of life’ is a living thing.
Because, if the breathe of life is detached from the dust of the ground, it can never live again.
Therefore, we can now establish that, our main self – the living being is not this physical body we see; but rather, the breath of life (Made in the image and likeness of God. Genesis 1:27), who lives inside it.
From here therefore, we can further come to the understanding that, the dust of the ground is like a building structure (which you can call house, temple, tent, and tabernacle etc.) which occupies the breath of life i.e. man as a living being.
This fact can be seen when God revealed to the Jews that He does not dwell in the house built with human hands, but rather, he moves about in tents and tabernacles;
“For I have not dwelt in a house since the time that I brought the children of Israel up from Egypt, even to this day, but have moved about in a tent and in a tabernacle.2 Samuel 7:6.
Though most of them did not understand that, God was referring to their dust of the ground i.e. human bodies – a house built by His own hands.
