Does the Bible say we have an immortal soul?

Do we really have an immortal soul? What does the Bible say about it? It’s time to UNLEARN the lies. UNLEARN Hey, welcome to UNLEARN. My name is Lex, and I’d like to invite you
to join us each week as we UNLEARN the lies and dig deeper into the truth of God’s Word. Now, let’s get started. Popular teachings about life after death center
around the idea that a person’s soul is immortal and continues to live on after the
death of their body. This idea has been very popular throughout
history, especially among the Egyptians and Greeks. Most religious and philosophical views about
the afterlife suggest that this existence takes place in a spiritual realm, not a physical
one. But what does the Bible have to say about
life after death? To get the proper understanding of life and
death, we need to start in the beginning. The first few chapters of Genesis explain
the origin of life, the cause of death, and the need for salvation. “And the LORD God formed man of the dust
of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living
soul.” – Genesis 2:7 Notice the Bible does not say that God took
a soul and placed it in the body. This means the soul is not pre-existent, and
that it was created by God in the body. Historically speaking, in Christianity, the
two main theories concerning where the soul originates are creationism and traducianism. Creationism teaches that God creates a soul
for each body at conception. This means that every time an embryo is formed
in a womb, God actively creates a soul and breathes life into the person. This was the predominant belief in Eastern
Christianity, while traducianism was more dominant in the West. Traducianism teaches that a person’s soul
is derived from the souls of his or her parents. This teaching is based on the idea that Adam’s
soul was created directly by God, then Eve’s soul was brought forth out from Adam, and
when Adam and Eve conceived Cain and Abel, their souls were derived from the combination
of Adam and Eve. This theory seems to help explain the transmission
of original sin. Both creationism and traducianism explain
that the soul comes into existence at conception. However, the pre-existence theory teaches
that every soul existed before conception, and enters the body sometime before birth. Some adherents to this theory believe the
soul is also eternal. It’s important to note that Greek Philosophy,
Hinduism, and Mormonism all affirm the pre-existence of the soul, while it has been almost universally
denied in both Christianity and Judaism throughout history. Hindus and Mormons also affirm the belief
in the immortality of the soul, and not just pre-existence but also the eternal existence
of the soul. This means that every person has existed eternally
with God or as a god. According to Hinduism, Krishna said, “Never was there a time when I did not exist,
nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.” (Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Deluxe) The idea that we have an immortal soul plays
well into the Hindu belief of reincarnation. They believe that every person continues on
an endless cycle of death and rebirth until they reach the final point of liberation. Their desire is to end the cycle, and cease
to exist. To them, salvation is the end of life, but
for those who believe the Bible, salvation is the gift of eternal life. Similar to Hinduism, the Mormon Doctrine and
Covenants states, “Man was also in the beginning with God. Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not
created or made, neither indeed can be.” (The Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants) The Mormons believe that we are co-eternal
with God, and that our soul has always existed with God, but if we’re immortal beings that
exist eternally, then we were not created by God. When you say that humans have an immortal
soul, you are essentially saying that we are gods. This doctrine is completely unbiblical, and
has no place in Christian thought. The Bible plainly tells us that only God is
immortal. “…He who is the blessed and only Potentate,
the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable
light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.” – 1 Timothy 6:15-16 This is why it’s so important for us to
understand the Biblical account of creation. The Bible tells us that man was created and
that he “became a living soul”. We did not exist eternally in an incorporeal
state before putting on flesh, to live a short earthly existence and later return to life
without a body. The Bible tells us that we were created with
a body and did not exist prior to the formation of our flesh. By saying we have an immortal soul, we are
robbing Yeshua of his glory and exalting ourselves as equals with Christ! He is the only pre-existent soul to put on
flesh, we were created in flesh, but He descended from heaven and put on flesh and dwelt among
us for a time. This is one of the glorious mysteries about
the nature of the Messiah, and by claiming that we share in his pre-existence, we diminish
Him. Listen to the way Paul describes the nature
of the Messiah. “…who, being in the form of God, did not
consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking
the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He
humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him
and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee
should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and
that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” – Philippians 2:6-11 The Mormons have no problem with the idea
of an immortal soul, because they consider themselves to be co-eternal with Christ. Their theology leads them to believe that
they can be gods of their own planet someday. However, if we take seriously the Biblical
account of creation, then we cannot conclude that we are anything more than created beings. The Bible also tells us that because of sin,
humans have not been given access to the tree of life, which is why we do not live forever. “Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man
has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take
also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever… So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim
at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the
way to the tree of life.” – Genesis 3:22,24 But, the Bible also tells us that those who
are saved will be given access to the tree of life. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from
the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” – Revelation 2:7 “Blessed are those who do His commandments,
that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into
the city.” – Revelation 22:14 The Bible never even mentions an immortal
soul or life outside the body, yet many Christians now believe in an immortal soul that continues
living after our body dies. So, where do these ideas come from and why
have they become so popular today? The Greek philosophers and Gnostics have had
significant influence on this line of thinking. “For we are influenced always more or less
by the Greek, Platonic idea, that the body dies, yet the soul is immortal. Such an idea is utterly contrary to the Israelite
consciousness, and is nowhere found in the Old Testament.” (The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) The Greeks believed the body hindered the
soul, and they looked forward to the time when the soul would be free from its shackles. They thought the soul was immortal, but was
trapped in a mortal body, and they looked forward to the day when their soul would be
set free from its body. This idea is quite different from the Hebrew
understanding about life being a gift from God. The creation is not something to escape, it’s
a blessing that we should delight in. We shouldn’t be seeking to escape our bodies,
but rather, rejoicing in the life we have been given. Sadly, the Biblical understanding of these
things has been forgotten, and replaced with Greek philosophy. “Unlike the Greeks, who largely understood
a person as a soul entrapped in a body, the ancient Hebrews depicted the person as a psychosomatic
(body-soul) unity. When this body-soul union failed in death,
the Hebrews did not visualize the escape of the soul from the body, but the actual death
of the self.” (Holman Bible Dictionary) Greek philosophy has led believers away from
Biblical truth, and I believe it’s this type of Platonic thinking that has also led
people to devalue life on earth. Many people have the attitude that they are
just passing time, waiting for the moment they get to go to heaven. They see this life as a hindrance to their
“real life” that they imagine will take place when their soul goes to heaven. Traditional teachings about the afterlife
are based on the belief that everyone has an immortal soul, and that soul must go somewhere
when their body dies. This concept of an incorporeal and immortal
soul is an ancient belief embraced by many Pagan religions, and is not at all Biblical. “The belief in a continuous life of the
soul, which underlies primitive Ancestor Worship and the rites of necromancy, practiced also
in ancient Israel, was discouraged and suppressed by prophet and lawgiver as antagonistic to
the belief in Yhwh, the God of life… As a matter of fact, eternal life was ascribed
exclusively to God and to celestial beings who “eat of the tree of life and live forever”,
whereas man by being driven out of the Garden of Eden was deprived of the opportunity of
eating the food of immortality” (The Jewish Encyclopedia) The idea that we have an immortal soul goes
against the very foundations of the Bible. The Book of Genesis says that we were denied
immortality because of sin, and the curse of sin is death. But the enemy continues to deceive people,
by telling them, “You will not surely die… you will be like God” It’s dangerous to assume something that
the Bible does not actually say, yet many people assume the soul is immortal, contrary
to what the Bible says. Many false doctrines have been built on assumptions,
and we need to be on guard against those things. The Bible should be our source for doctrine,
and not the assumptions and philosophies of men. “The belief that the soul continues its
existence after the dissolution of the body is a matter of philosophical or theological
speculation rather than of simple faith, and is accordingly nowhere expressly taught in
Holy Scripture.” (The Jewish Encyclopedia) The belief that we have an immortal soul was
not taught by the first century apostles, and appears to have been brought into Christian
thought at a much later date. We can see how the immortal soul concept is
harmful to proper Biblical understanding by simply looking at the heresies it gave rise
to in the early church. One particular heresy, known as Gnosticism,
placed tremendous weight in the immortality of the soul. The most well known Gnostic in Church History
was the heretic, Marcion. He believed in a dualism between body and
soul, and thought that humans were bound to their evil physical bodies and could only
escape by gaining knowledge. Gnostic dualism led him to conclude that there
are two coexisting gods, and the God of Creation was an evil being, and the created world was
an evil place that we must escape. Marcion taught that Jesus was the “good”
god who came to earth to redeem mankind from the evil physical creation of the God of the
Old Testament. According to Marcion, Jesus came to save human
souls from the world of matter. Marcion’s influence was significant enough
that his teachings were opposed in the writings of many church fathers including Justin Martyr,
Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian and others. Despite this opposition, Marcionite churches
spread throughout the Roman empire, and persevered until the fourth century. Unfortunately, some of Marcion’s teachings
have survived even unto present day Christianity. A third century theologian named Origen, believed
that each human soul was created prior to conception, and he theorized that human souls
were pre-existent in heaven before the creation of the world (similar to what the modern day
Mormons believe). “but we know that the soul, which is immaterial
and invisible in its nature, exists in no material place, without having a body suited
to the nature of that place… When it comes into the world at birth, it
casts off the integuments which it needed in the womb; and before doing this, it puts
on another body suited for its life upon earth.” (Origen of Alexandria: Against Celsus) In the thirteenth century, a Catholic theologian
named Thomas Aquinas, taught that human souls are immortal. He postulated that the soul does not rely
on bodily organs and therefore could exist without a body. Since he believed the soul is a form that
does not consist of matter, he concluded that it cannot be destroyed by any natural process,
and is independent from the body. “But the human soul always remains a substance
capable of subsisting of itself apart from the body, although the operations of its lower
faculties would then necessarily be suspended. Because of its intrinsic substantial union
with the material of the organism, the two principles result in one substantial being. But since it is a spiritual being retaining
spiritual activities, intrinsically independent of the body, it is, as St. Thomas says, non
totaliter immersa , not entirely submerged in matter, as are the actuating forms of the
animal and the plant.” (The Catholic Encyclopedia) The Roman Catholic church has long held to
the belief in the immortal soul, and they claim the idea of having a mortal soul is
actually the heresy. In doing so, they are denying the word of
God which says, “the soul who sins shall die.” They seem to be in agreement with the serpent
who said, “you will not surely die.” This was actually one of the points of contention
between the Catholic church and the Protestant reformers. Among the reformation leaders who taught against
the immortality of the soul John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, and Martin Luther are most
notable. They opposed the Catholic doctrines of the
immortal soul, purgatory, and saint worship, teaching that at death the soul sleeps until
the resurrection. Luther described the pope’s declaration
about the immortal soul as being among the “endless monstrosities in the Roman dunghill.” The belief in our own mortality is foundational
in the Bible, and vital to our understanding of the power and significance of the gospel
message. We are mortal and will all face death, but
thanks to our Messiah, we have the hope of eternal life through the resurrection. If we already possess immortality, then we
have no need for a savior. To claim that we have an immortal soul renders
the gospel meaningless. It should be unthinkable for anyone who claims
to follow the Bible to believe in the natural immortality of the soul. The soul is not naturally immortal, that’s
what makes the work of Yeshua so significant, because He gives mortals the opportunity to
become immortal. In Christian theology, this view is commonly
referred to as “conditional immortality” (or conditionalism), because our immortality
is based on certain conditions that must be met. This stands in direct opposition to the more
popular belief in the “immortal soul.” Conditionalism emphasizes our dependence upon
God for life, and realizes that eternal life is a gift from God that only the elect will
receive. In the Fifth Council of the Lateran, the Roman
Catholic Church reaffirmed its belief in the immortal soul, and condemned conditionalism
as “erroneous assertions.” “we condemn and reject all those who insist
that the intellectual soul is mortal… For the soul not only truly exists of itself…
but it is also immortal” (Fifth Lateran Council 1512-17 A.D.) They claim that the soul “exists of itself.” That is pure blasphemy because any being that
exists of itself is a god. A being that exists of itself is one that
exists by its own nature, without cause from another. To claim that we are self-existent beings
is to claim that we were not created by God, and that we have always existed on our own. Yet, the Bible tells us that we were created
by God, and that He is the one who “gives life to all things.” I acknowledge and accept the fact that right
now I’m mortal, however, I also believe the promise that we have been given in the
Word of God that through Yeshua I can become immortal. I refuse to believe the Gnostic, pagan lie
that has been endorsed by the Catholic church that says I already possess immortality. We are not self-existent beings, we exist
only because God allows us to exist. We will all die unless we are given the gift
of eternal life. SHARE THE TRUTH

100 thoughts on “Does the Bible say we have an immortal soul?”

  1. Paul said to be apart from the body is to be present with the Lord. So when we die our soul will be with the Lord.

  2. What difference does any of this make? Instead of waiting time on this unanswerable d batr, might we be better off in loving one another as I have loved you? No one has ever found peace and joy in the head. Love is what we crave. Would he rather be right or happy? Jesus did not ask us to make YouTube videos about a doctrinal issues that only divide us. He asked (and still does ask) to love one another. Anything els is dishonoring his sacrifice.

  3. This is precisely why enlightened sould (which the fellow clearly is not) don't discuss this stuff. All it does is create war. What difference does any of this make to you or me or any if the other suffering beings in the universe? We need to be free of suffering. And that coned through love, not intellectual BS like this.

  4. Instead of sitting around in your room proving yourself right, why not step outside your door and relieve someone's suffering? Make yourself useful.

  5. This video is misleading because it fixates on the straw man of whether or not we "live" in some form after the death of our body. You are also wrongly conflating immortality with eternal life…only God is eternal, but God can and did create IMMORTAL beings (beings which had a beginning but have no end). None of God's creation is eternal because it began on the first day, and that alone will always be what distinguishes us from God – we are made in God's image and likeness, but as with all created beings, we can only be immortal at best – never eternal like God.

    So to the points about souls, living, and death, according to the Bible:

    – God has already declared that there is "nothing new under the sun", which refutes the idea of on-demand soul creation at conception. The creation of things is not one-in-the-same with the MAKING of things. God creates man, and then made man from the dust of the earth. All that ever will exist already exists.

    – The soul is better understood as our Operating System, i.e. Windows or Mac software. Without a computer the OS software does nothing and cannot process information; it is effectively asleep (aka dead) BUT yet the software does exist and will continue to do so being recorded in some disk or memory card.

    – Likewise, our soul is the essence of who we are as individuals AND the soul is immortal in terms of its EXISTENCE, but the soul is only alive if it is within a body…and it can only act within the capabilities and limitations of said body.

    – We will all face death, but our death is in the flesh. Jesus stated that those who are saved will have everlasting life – not suggesting a life in the flesh. When we die, our soul parts from our body and continues existing as merely "information", a record. When Jesus resurrects us, what does he do? He gives us a NEW IMMORTAL BODY, again, reiterating the point that a condition of being alive is having a body.

    – Our bodies live by the grace of God's Holy Spirit, which we can liken to the electricity that powers a computer (to continue the previous analogy). So to sum it up:

    1) Soul: our operating system software and immutable memory (record)
    2) Body: the 'computer' where our soul is installed, and once there, is able to live.
    3) Holy Spirit: God's spirit is like the electricity a computer needs to power on.

  6. "…the truth shall set you free"
    A-men, A-men, A-men! Learning SO much from you, brother! Growing up in Baptist, then Charismastic & other protestant churches, that never quite made sense, or left unknowns in Yah's loving promises of the whole scripture, there was so much before that is becoming more & more clear. I just need to study, to learn scriptures better so as to truky share the Gospel measage I too am excitedly learning truly all a new now at the middle of my life.

  7. Question: I have read, heard or told that a…..”child said to the mother I choose you for my mommy” and another said I came into your belly through your head … etc, etc,
    So according to that a soul came in to that child at conception? And also about children that remember past lives? Does that means a soul can chose to come back or once it leaves our bodies it disappeared or in waiting for the end of the world with God and his angels? ( since in Apocalypse says “ I saw 144 thousand 12 thousand vigente of each tribe of Israel, and I look up to a multitude of people of all races and creeds” (waiting to see God seated on his throne) love to hear in what way “unlearn” can explain these references, specially since Jesus- Christ said “you are god’s” ( this one I think he said it because we could become enlightened to heal and teach)… and if understood well what you just said after our bodies die, we disappear or our soul go where?

  8. What about NDEs? Many documented near death experiences show that the soul probably continues after the death of the physical body. Couldn't that be the case? not necessarily an eternal soul, but at least a soul that lives on.

  9. The mormons have that doctrine bc they later on can officially become freemasons and those people believe they are gods

  10. The bible does not support an eternal soul overall. So what. Doesnt mean the bible is right. Why should this book be right over all the others. Of course they all may be wrong. Let's go right to Genesis. Adam and Eve cant go more than 6000 years. We know people no different from us go back 50 thousand years. No different from us. Anthropology tells us something very different from the bible. Honest people. Right from the beginning the bible wrong. We never ever fell from grace we evolved. The evidence is overwhelming that we did but churches deny this fact. The fall of man never happened. I'm sorry but I'm going to go where the evidence leads. The doctrine of atonement is based on a false interpretation of human beings. Sorry the bible gets these things hopelessly wrong! That's why people deny these dates that tell us how far we really go back. There was no Adam and Eve. There are growing clues of a soul. Strange however. Jesus? What age will a baby be resurrected at? The babies age or 20 years old with an immortal body? What if the parents of the baby dying were Hindu instead of Christian? Oh oh! What if half your family is not Christian? Oh oh! Your going to have to good of what follows! You'll never see them again and will have to love and worship this God forever! I'd have to say—Count me out and just let me die forever. Love and take care from Buddhist/Agnostic Lee.

  11. Only God in his infinite wisdom decides who goes to heaven n who does not. Nobody is to be compared to GOD as he is th one one who has made us all. To be with GOD in heaven is a gift not a rite. Nobody is imortal except for th ones who think they are th same of GOD n they in their own ignorance are incorrect. Im a Roman Catholic who loves GOD n all his people

  12. WRONG. All people are given an immortal soul at conception and their names are in the Book of Life. God does not want anyone to perish but desires to give eternal life to all. Unfortunately, many will not accept God's grace / salvation through Jesus Christ. Mat 25:46 "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

  13. ediot go and learn science energy never created and never destroyed soul is energy😤😤😤you want to know what is soul read full bhagwat geeta🙂🙂🙂

  14. Does that means if our body dies and our souls as well? What happen when judgement comes? Are we still dead before it?

  15. Life after death is all over the Old Testament! Does he not know the story of Saul speaking to the ghost of Samuel?! Does he not know what Gabriel, the archangel has told Daniel what he will wake up to after death? How did Jesus speak with Moses and Elijah? Some will wake to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

  16. I don’t want my soul only to be immortal I want my body and soul to both be immortal I don’t want to be in a coffin (I’m chatholic)

  17. I am confused. We do not naturally possess immoral souls but can possess immortal souls through the acceptance of Yeashua? Resurrection will occur when Yeshua returns for us? Until then we sleep after death or do we go to paradise? Yes, no?

  18. Have you read Psalm 139? I knew you before you were even born…you have it the exact opposite going on here….the soul came 1st….then the body..Know your Scripture!!

  19. As an Atheist, I want to say that I think you have great content. And surprising as this may sound, thank you for producing these topics. The vast majority of Christians have been hoodwinked by the Church for far too long.

  20. It is immortal, unless you are saved, you will be thrown in to the abyss, where there is no rest day or night

  21. I love y'all videos but I disagree because all of us came from the light. I've never seen a gorilla gave birth to a cattle and I've never seen a cattle gave birth to a gorilla. I'm sorry but your information is contradictory.

  22. I agree with your study… Now, God did create human “souls” to live eternally and gave humans the chance to do so. He did not create ya to die. We were created in his image. So yes we are SUPPOSE to be eternal beings. But we have fallen. Glory to God! We are saved by his Christ and our Savior!

  23. Without a doubt the human soul is immortal. This is clearly seen in many Scriptures in both Old and New Testament : Psalms 22:6, 49:7-8, Ecclesiastes 12:7, Dan.12:2-3, Matt.25:46 and 1Cor.15:12-19.

    Dan.12:2 says multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.
    Jesus Himself said that the wicked will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life Matt25:46.

    While all souls are immortal, it is important to remember that we are not eternal in the same way that God is. God is immortal but God has always existed. Our souls are immortal but had a beginning. Our souls will live forever once we come into being, the Bible does not support the concept that our souls have always existed. God created our souls.

    How can anyone read that and say that the soul is not immortal ? Heaven is forever and The Lake of Fire is also forever.


  25. In all seriousness how can Luke 16:22 be interpreted if when the body is dead the soul is also 22“Finally, the poor man died and was carried by the angels to sit beside Abraham at the heavenly banquet. The rich man also died and was buried, 23and he went to the place of the dead. There, in torment, he saw Abraham in the far distance with Lazarus at his side.

  26. I'm not sure that the soul is independent of the body, but your arguments are not convincing. Let´s not confuse "eternal" with "immortal", God is the only one that´s eternal (no beginning no end); but there are immortal beings in the universe, angels are an example. Angels are not equal to God; although they are immortal spirits, if they sin (fall out of grace) they get destroyed on Judgement. Therefore, immortality is an attribute that can be gotten but also one that can be lost according to the bible. So let´s be clear, saying that a soul is immortal does not imply that it wasn’t created by God, it doesn't imply either that it is equal to God nor does it imply that it will not perish on Judgement or at any later time that God saw fit. Having said all that… I'm still unsure, you were just not helpful.

  27. The immortal soul doctrine is just as correct as the idea that we were born in a sinful state (Ecclesiastes 7:29)

  28. If the soul sleeps until the resurrection then is it possible for someone to be prayed for after death so that they may be saved ?

  29. Don't listen to what the confused, and delusional say about you lex.

    I believe you teach directly from the canon of the scriptures, and you're definitely definitely soldiering for yahawashi the Christ.

    May the Lord of hosts bless, guard, strengthen, and keep you.

    Shalom ✌🕎🕎🕎🕎🕎🕎🕎.

  30. It's not just catholics. Almost all non catholic christians believe in an eternal soul or that man is a spirit that lives in a body. They are all wrong. Scriptures teach "The dead know nothing". It is interesting what YHWH Himself says: "for dust thou art (not spirit) and unto dust shall you return'

  31. I was a pentecostal I had my. Doubts about the eternal soul. 1cor15 the first Adam was a natural man. Not natural and spiritual. Ecc. Says the dead cannot praise him.. In Timothy it says immortality and life came through the gospel. May God glve understanding in this.

  32. I was raised evangelical but just recently started to walk with Christ… I JUST started to learn the Bible on my own and Your channel has helped me to understand a lot of things that are confusing to me.

    But unlearn this about hell has been hard… what about the people who say they’ve had near death experience and got to see/feel what eternal hell will be like… Was it a dream? Did they imagine it?

  33. In revelation John says I saw the souls under the altar, these are before the second coming.revelation 6:9 this is the fifth seal before Jesus returns.

  34. Yeas : according to the scriptures, we have an immortal soul. Yea that's after the physical body is dead. The soul is exiting in every body.

  35. If you called this false teachings what does it mean? It mean that he doesn't qout from the bible or what ? Brethren don't worry even the Jews doubted the Messiah so this comment does not push me from the truth

  36. I watch a lot of your videos and agree for the most part. But this teaching is NOT true.. Jesus clearly states he knew us even before birth..

  37. Help me understand a few things you say the one who deceives has enough authority to deceive the whole world just about and all this trickery but you don't think that he would attack the thing that meant the most the 1 thing that caused him to fear and tremble the name.

    🔼The name Helel in the Bible

    It's not clear whether the name Helel should actually be considered a real name, but probably not. It seemingly occurs only one time in the Bible, in the famous observation of the prophet Isaiah, addressed to the king of Babylon: "How you have fallen from heaven, helel, son of the dawn!" (Isaiah 14:12). Some enthusiasts believe that Isaiah was really talking about satan, but no, he wasn't. The prophet Ezekiel wrote a similar taunt, but addressed to the king of Tyre this time: "You had the seal of perfection. Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty, you were in Eden, in the garden of God" (Ezekiel 28:12-13). The key to all this is that these prophets lamented the once greatness and righteousness of Babylon and Tyre, which they wasted on their desires to be powerful and wealthy. See for a further discussion of this our article on the name Hannibal.
    Apparently, the translators who produced the trend-setting Septuagint figured this helel to be a person: none other than Venus, the morning star, and inserted the common epithet εωσφορος (eosphoros) into their text. This epithet consists of (1) an unusual form of the noun ηως, meaning dawn (or the name Ηως; the deity Eos or Aurora) and (2) the verb φορω meaning to bear or bring (see the names Bernice and Fortunatus).
    When Jerome had a go at this text and translated it into Latin (the Vulgate), he too lunged for the common epithet of Venus, and wrote Lucifer (from the Latin noun lux, meaning light, and the verb fero, meaning to bring; they even had an adjective lux-fero, meaning light-bringing).
    In the centuries that followed, somehow the name Lucifer became applied to satan, and herds of enthusiasts began to apply Isaiah 14 to the devil. But contemporary demonology is as botched as the devil himself, and most modern interpreters diligently steer clear of the association. The King James Version still printed Lucifer in their translation of Isaiah 14:12, but the Darby translation was the last to follow. Young reads "shining one"; the ASV has "day-star"; NIV reads "morning star" and NAS has the similar "star of the morning".
    BDB Theological Dictionary deems helel to be an appellation that means shining one, "i.e. star of the morning". HAW Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament back-tracks from the onomastic interpretation of the Septuagint and Vulgate, and declares Helel to be both a proper name and a hapax legomenon (a word of which only one recorded instance is known).
    Here at Abarim Publications we feel that the whole onomastic approach is wrong, and HAW is doubly wrong. The word הילל occurs four more times in the Bible.

    🔼Etymology and meaning of the name Helel

    The "name" Helel is thought to come from the verb הלל (halal), meaning to shine:

    Excerpted from: Abarim Publications' Biblical Dictionary


    The verb הלל (halal) means to shine (what exited stars do) or praise and cheer (what exited souls do). It may even denote too much of a good thing: to be raving mad. From the second sense derive: noun הליל (hillul), praise or rejoicing; noun מהלל (mahalel), agent or place of praise, and noun תהלה (tehilla), song of praise. From the third sense come nouns הוללה (holela) and הוללות (holelut), both meaning madness.

    — See the full Dictionary article —

    However, the form הילל occurs four additional times in the Bible (in Jeremiah 47:2, Ezekiel 21:12, Joel 1:5 and Zechariah 11:2), and the Masoretes punctuated these words nearly in the same way as our "name" Helel. The major translations consistently interpret these four instances of הילל as imperative forms of the verb ילל (yalal), meaning to howl or wail:

  39. Genesis 6:3 "Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are MORTAL; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

  40. I have always been taught that the bible says that you form soul ties such as the scripture talking about becoming one with a prostitute etc. I was recently told that is a false teaching. What do you say? I did not see that you have any videos on the subject, please help. I have been helping others with soul ties and spiritual warfare but I most certainly don't want to teach them anything wrong.

  41. God created man with a soul to live forever and to worship and enjoy Him forever. Because sin entered the world we are spiritually dead and in need of spiritual life again, but Christ's life is the only life that can give us enternal life again. So we are now reconciled back to God to live in eternity with Him or the other option is to be eternally seperate from Him. In short we have not always existed but God did create us to live forever. When He created man, He said "it was good". If God had originally greated man and his soul to die, He would have not have called that "good". His ultimate plan was to defeat the last enemy, which is death.

  42. Ephesians 1:4-6 King James Version (KJV)

    4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

    5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

    6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

  43. Another green eyed trickster from the tribe of Dan. Just because the soul was created doesnt mean its not immortal. The torah and nt are both replete with mention of an eternal afterlife. Immorality means without end, not without a beginning. The angels did not always exist, but they are immortal. The same is true with the souls of humans

  44. REV 1:18 I am the Living One; I was dead, ECCL 9: 5 For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; Jesus said he was dead shows the soul is not immortal

  45. Lex can you please explain some bible verses too me 2 Thessalonians 1 9. And Jude 1 7 these both talk about eternal punishment

  46. It amazes me that a very short lifetime determines the outcome of your eternity.   Does the Mormon Church hold water to their teachings ?

  47. So what about Mathew 22:30? Jesus says we will be like angels in the resurrection. To my understanding, angels can't die so that would imply that those who get to go to heaven will live forever.

  48. Sometimes I think a soul or spirit is us just having emotions. A part of the brain that animals don't have, but we do.

    3:35 was convictingly funny

  49. I have not much knowloge about it. Im just learning now. So if the souls are not immortal, how the punishment will be eternal??

  50. I bet tons of highly religious people are upset with this guy. I believe that this is true. I am a mortal, not immortal in any way. Life comes from only God, Eternal life comes from only God. It's true, that Satan wants people to believe in the lie, that we will not die. Religious disagreements do not overcome biblical truth, instead people get set free from falsehoods.
