Do we even have a Soul?

Art Bell interviews Anthony Patch regarding the coming of Antichrist
and his technocratic New World Order.

I’ve just been listening to the second part of an interview where Art Bell asked Antony Patch the following question, to which I felt compelled to answer...

I wonder if people pay attention to the fact that they even have a soul?

When at the point of death, the life-giving spirit that had once bound Jesus’ celestial soul to a terrestrial body returned to His Father [Ecc 12:7]...

Luke 23:46
And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

...then Jesus’ soul entered Hades [Not hell] below, while His body remained three days in the tomb...

Acts 2:27
Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell Hades, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Where The Law of Sin and Death [Rom 8:2] having no legal authority to detain the innocent in a state of death [a soul without a body] within Hades was undone. Why? because it had been entered by the innocent whose righteous Father would raise from the dead. That is why we read...

Revelation 1:18
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Thus having conquered Hades and death, Jesus and not Satan now detains within Hades every soul that dies with an outstanding debt of death [Sin], they having rejected Christ’s payment for sin on their behalf. These shall remain there until the Second Resurrection...

Acts 24:15
And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

Daniel 12:2
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

...when raised to life they shall receive judgement for sin. Why? because during their lives they rejected the free gift of God, even God’s payment for sin.

Revelation 20:13
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell [Hades] delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Then Hades is where guilty souls are kept til judgement but Hell is where they are sentenced to for sin...

Revelation 20:6
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death [Hell] hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. [Millennium]

So ‘Yes,’ we do have a soul which can carry-on existing apart from the body. Life is when a soul is clothed within a body but death on the other hand, is when it is not. yet just because a soul is in a state of ‘death’ doesn’t mean that it no longer exists, and so we read...

Luke 12:4-5
4 - And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
5 - But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

Remember, once you have been separated from your body [death] your choice of eternal life or eternal damnation has been made, and there is no turning back.

1 Thessalonians 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
