There are Principalities, Rulers, Forces, and Dominions in place working out an entirely larger scheme that makes Earth more of a value subdued, than destroyed.

As with scriptural texts, all things are threefold. As with the scriptural revelation, there is a progressive nature in these things too. There is a Trinity in almost every natural state. From the Divine Triad of Father (Yahweh)-History, Son (Yeshua)-Blueprint, and Yahweh’s Holy Spirit-future recollection. Man, too has threefold form of Spirit, of Soul and a Body.

Let’s think of some examples of what we usually call polarity of black and white, hot and cold, up and down, male and female and Sun and Earth? For black and white, there’s grey; for hot and cold, there’s warm; for up and down, there’s the middle; for male and female, there’s a child, for the Sun and the Earth (male and female), there’s the Moon (child). Time is also in three components: past, present and future. The mental relationship of how we see space is with the x, y, z axes—front and back, left and right, up and down. Even in each of these three directions there’s a middle or neutral point, creating three parts.

You may not always be consciously considering a Plan B when you are making a decision, but that does not mean it does not exist. Researchers have discovered that the human brain's motor neurons will prepare for multiple actions before making a decision. The mind reads the environment as a range of potential actions, and that you are always considering options, even if you only ever decide on one. Let us utilize a practical example to explain these elements:

A woman gets the tidings of the sudden demise of her hubby. This is a "psychic" cause: we call it psychic because it is not the message as spoken that produces the outcome on her (she had often before felt the shock of the sound waves of the word "death"), but its significance for her, the effects and the perceived agony that she immediately anticipates or that she will soon have. We see an immediate attempt of the heart to drive sufficient Blood to the brain to stand the shock, the subsequent paleness, the stomach sickness, the trembling, and possibly the loss of consciousness, by which means nature delivers her from the agony of mental pain. As science now confirmed, there is actually some brain tissue around the stomach region, in short, the Yogi will remind you that the stomach area is the keeper of Chi/Force/Power as this is where it is harnessed and stored.

Also, somber music is known to send cold shivers down the spine and sensations of cold are assigned also with the sensing of that creepy feeling when walking alone through a dismal spot. These phenomena of the circulation and neural system are produced by a campaign that is purely psychical in origin, and prove that the intellect is indeed able to use the Body to press out its opinions and emotions, like happiness, fear or in sorrow. We are not limited by our bodies or the “laws" of physics!

Have you ever heard someone say that a certain person “clashes with my Spirit”? Obviously, the opposite is also often true. A friend of mine recently told me the story of her mother that was admitted to the hospital for kidney failure. While visiting her, a stranger who had also visited someone in that same ward during her visit, approached her and in casual discussion, asked if she would mind him praying for her mother. Being a devout Christian, she welcomed this apparent stranger, offering to pray for her mother. What came about then, was quite shockingly extremely accurate and although very much in line with her feeling, yet managed to surprise her. The gentleman had no idea what the cause was of her mother’s hospitalization, but during the prayer, he started to touch his lower back and he started experiencing pain around his kidneys. He completed the prayer and my friend asked him about these back pains. He temporarily felt the kidneys and then reassured my friend that although he now experienced pain, her mother would be okay. Irrespective of the outcome of this, it seems obvious that at some point here seems to be a definite parallel Spiritual connection that comes before a physical interaction. 

The physical body is a product of the continuous work of the soul, which acts upon it by the similar organism of the astral body, just as the visible Universe is only an energy of the infinite Spirit.

Human beings consist of three things:

The soul is an immaterial element; in other words, the sensitive consciousness/soul is Spiritual as well. It is the identical element in which reason, emotion, and free will are housed. Due to its subjective nature, a reductionist approach is having a difficult time in addressing some fundamental questions about consciousness/soul. The sensitive consciousness/soul is the element which controls the Body in three areas. The soul is immortal in the sense that it cannot be annihilated; therefore, it remains alive even if the Body is dead physically. The psyche is one of the three elements, and is the place of understanding and flair for arts and sciences; you can tune into the Body and sensitive soul using the Spiritual wavelengths your vision does not get to “see”. Since it is where free will is located; consequently, it is the very element that carries the massive burden of sin. Our sensitive soul gives us the power to think, choose, imagine, remember, and feel. Most significantly, the sensitive consciousness/soul is the very embodiment of our psyche. I suppose the simplest way to identify the sensitive consciousness/soul would be to say that it is one's personality.
The rational Spirit is from Yahweh absolutely; it interacts with Yahweh, and the Spiritual realm through its own circle of “sensations”, things like faith, Promise, and prayer or petition. We are taught to demonstrate faith in God’s ability to answer our prayers. The field of its activity is celestial and Divine, and Divine inspiration and influence pass through it to the material Body. The human Spirit is an element given to humans to enable them to know Yahweh intimately through a genuine relationship. Our human Spirit is what connects us with Yahweh. Thus, to be joined with Yahweh is to be alive Spiritually (Ephesians 2:5; Romans 6:11; John 5:24) while to be disconnected from Yahweh is to be dead Spiritually (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:1; Colossians 2:13). Our human Spirit is the factor through which the Spirit of Yahweh dwells in us after being restored by Him (Romans 8:15-16; 1 John 2:20). Man’s soul needs to be connected to Yahweh by the power of the Holy Spirit so that it can operate at the dimension of sensitivity and awareness that Yahweh wants. In other terms, man’s conscience needs to be cleared by the indwelling work of the Spirit of Yahweh. When we do not “believe”, we are not connected, we feel isolated, alone and scared.
The Body is the Earth. A home or vessel wherein our consciousness/soul and Spirit temporarily abide and perform their functions, having been married therein by Yahweh at physical birth. Immortality has nothing to do with living in the same Body forever. You are going to live forever anyway; and from your birth, you always will be, but you might not be conscious during all that time.

God dwells in the Spirit, self naturally dwells in the soul, while senses dwell in the Body. These elements of our being strives daily with one another, till the Spirit overcomes the sensitive soul, and thus attains Godly regeneration, or the Flesh overcomes the sensitive soul and thus attains ungodly degeneration. This intangible concept is hard to cut through. For the Holy Spirit instructs us therein how to divide Spirit and Soul experientially. We need to segregate a conscious mind from the biological brain.

The dividing of these two is not a mere doctrine; it is pre-eminently a life, a must in the believer’s walk. Just what is its essential meaning? It means; First of all, that by His Word and through His Indwelling Spirit God enables the Christian to differentiate in experience the operations and expressions of the Spirit as distinct from those of the soul. Thus, he may perceive what is of the Spirit and what is of the soul. It remains a mystery to figure out when it comes to the process of death, how we - and animals - actually experience it, from our bodies to our brains.

Raymond Moody, prominent American psychologist and physician, collected thousands of testimonials of people who had had out of body experiences, all sharing incidences that allegedly occurred in the space of time when a patient was considered medically dead. Moody says the testimonials provide irrefutable proof of the afterlife. A pair of studies from 2016 found that more than 1,000 genes were still functioning several days after death in human bodies. What that explains is that very strange things can happen at the moment of death and after death. And it was not a reflex or that they were taking longer than everything else to shut down either, they actually increased in activity following the moment of clinical death! The results merely prove that we understand no more about the post-death experience now than we did before, because the observations remain inconclusive and without biological explanation.

When we depict a human organism, or any creature, as having “perceptual experiences” or “conscious states”, we are talking about some of the most basic characteristics which separate living from non-living things. The Spiritual, continue forever, but carries on indefinitely in the realm it is a part of in the afterworld. When it comes to the brain and the mind, it is not a case of either/or, but rather both/and. The brain has its share in influencing the processes of the mind, and realize that the mind cannot afford to reject the advances of the Body, but must for its own health maintain harmonious relations with it. The brain and nervous system, being informed by the downward causality of man's soul and thus existing in a properly intellectual way, have a critical role to play when it comes to consciousness and perception. One of the most mysterious phenomena in science is the nature of the conscious experience. The brain not only acts upon the physical structure, but it delivers an increasing disposition to dominate the Body and control its sensations. Then let’s carry this a little farther and attempt to interpret the connection to the Spirit:

An experiment at the Max Planck Institute, Berlin, in 2008 showed that when you decide to move your hand, the decision can be seen in your brain, with an MRI scanner, before you are aware you have made a decision. The delay is around six seconds. During that time, your psyche is made up but your consciousness does not acknowledge the decision until your hand moves. Cognizance, the thing you think of as ‘you’ – is only a passenger in an automatic process. Your unconscious brain and your Body get on with running your life, and only report back to your conscious mind to preserve a sense of free will. But it is just as valid to say that when you reach a decision, there’s always background processing going on, which the conscious mind ignores for convenience. In the same manner, your eye projects an inverted image onto your retina, only your unconscious brain turns it the right way around.

In the famous ‘rubber-hand illusion’, I ask you to focus your attention on a fake hand while your actual hand is kept out of view. If I then simultaneously stroke your real hand and the fake hand with a soft paintbrush, you may get the creepy feeling that the fake hand is part of your Body. This reveals a surprising flexibility in how we experience ‘owning’ our bodies and raises a question: That we truly cannot answer; How does the brain decide which regions of the world are its Body, and which aren’t? We are a bridge to another world. And we are living this bridge by just being alive in this incredible time. The deadly environmental issues around us are not a real problem when higher consciousness enters into the higher worldly realms, though from a material point of view, it does look like the end of life. If we were not Spiritual beings, if we were only physical bodies connected to Earth and had nowhere to go, we would be in a very serious dilemma. But because of who we are, what is about to happen on Earth could become a vehicle for enormous growth. Remember, life is merely a school.

Christianity, is that which sees materialism in its proper context as the stage for human life, and yet looks beyond the present world in faith, knowing that God indeed has "something better" planned for us, which we will receive from Him when we have matured to the point where we are ready to inherit it. Once the mental portal is reopened and the person becomes Spiritual enlightened, most of the instructions, activations, and experiences will happen during our meditation in the Word or when we dream. When you have dreams, you notice the shear detail that is involved in that environment you realize that there are a lot more than scientists are letting on.

The composition of man too, is composed of a mirror:

7 Mirror Stages of the Restoration of man

The Imperfect Body – Historical imperfection,
Untampered Soul, The wrong Blueprint,
Divine Spirit – Future aspiration.
The Spiritual enlightenment, rebirth and restitution sets in, our minds are renewed and we progress:
Divine Spirit-Perfection like Eden,
the Sensitive Soul-Uncorrupted Blueprint,
The Spiritual, Glorified Body - Future Restoration.

Paul speaks as an expert witness of the division of the natural and spiritual worlds. As seen earlier, there is a natural Body, and there is a Spiritual Body (I Cor 15:40). All men have a natural Body which live in the natural world, but man is also a Spiritual being with an eternal soul and Spirit. Man, is Body, soul, and Spirit. Our Spiritual being (consciousness/soul and Spirit) is part of a Spiritual world just as our natural Body is part of the natural world. The thief (Satan) cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy (this Spiritual Body); I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10), both in this world as well as in Heaven.

A current appreciation for miracles, angelic visitations, and li. fe-after-death experiences in popular culture, may signal a renewed awareness to forms and expressions of the Supernatural in everyday life. Although our overly material mind-set will tend to draw us to conclude there is no true Spiritual entity, Angels, Demons, Baalim, Gregori, Nephalim, Rephaim or Spiritual battles happening, there can be no denial that we do not fully comprehend the Cosmos and Reality for what it really is.

We think of Yahweh, the Devil and the Angels. Yet, the Scriptures speak of cherubim, seraphim, satyrs, Fire-breathing dragons and other types of creatures, some that we tend to toss into the class of “visionary” or “symbolic” Entities. We even have Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting serpent, and the dragon of the sea. In the Hebrew doctrines they classify their Angelic Beings as Aralim, Chesmalim, Aphanim, Ophanim, Malachim, Chioth Haqudush, etc. This means they do not group all their Spirit forces together and just call them all Angels in fact that term is foreign to them.

The Apocrypha contains an interesting explanation of an Angel directly interceding on behalf of Judas Maccabeus, the great Jewish leader who helped drive the Seleucids out of Israel in 2nd century B.C.:

“When Maccabeus and his men got word that Lysias was besieging the strongholds, they and all the people, with lamentations and tears, prayed the LORD to send a good Angel to save Israel. Maccabeus himself was the first to take up arms, and he urged the others to risk their lives with him to aid their kindred. Then they eagerly rushed off together. And there, while they were still near Jerusalem, a horseman appeared at their head, clothed in white and brandishing weapons of gold. And together they all praised the merciful God, and were strengthened in heart, ready to assail not only human but the wildest animals or walls of iron. They advanced in battle Order, having their heavenly ally, for the LORD had mercy on them. They hurled themselves like lions against the Enemy, and laid low eleven thousand of them and sixteen hundred cavalry, and forced all the rest to flee.” (NRSV, 2 Maccabees 11:6-11)
