Jesus’ Soul & Our Soul

Our previous life can be accurately explained through the life of Jesus. Jesus’ appearance was just like men’s, so His neighbors could not find any difference between Him and ordinary people. They said: “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?” (Matthew 13:55).

Jesus appeared in teh same form as us, in order to help us realize that we are just like Him in body and in soul and understand the fundemental truth of our previous and future life. If Jesus’ body and soul were different from ours, we wouldn’t be able to believe that we will resurrect or go to the kingdom of heaven and we would come to the conclusion that we will not be in the same state as Jesus. However, if we understand that Jesus’ life and state are the same as ours, we will be able to believe that we are going to heaven.

First, we need to look into Jesus’ life and state, both before and after His life on earth, through His words in the Bible.

Jesus prayer the closing prayer at the Last Passover Supper as follows: John 17:5-10. This prayer is for the recovery of the glory Jesus had with His people before the world began. It says in the Bible that Jesus Christ was with God and came to us (I John 1:2, John 6:62). Before Jesus came into this world, He existed as the Word of God (John 1:1-5, 14), and the Word created all things (Colossians 1:14-17; I Corinthians 8:6). Jesus is our Lord, who is worthy of having equal authority with God (John 10:30, Philippians 2:6-7, Isaiah 9:6).

Even Christ, the Word of the Creator, took on human flesh and was born into the world through the Virgin Mary. How much more can the spirits of God’s sons, created by God, wear the body and be born as men! There is no difference between Jesus and us in spiritual state except in rank. Ordinary people are the angels, or the holy people of heaven, who sinned and were born as men; they were all driven our from heaven because they rebelled against God, being tempted by Satan. Among them, some sinned intentionally, being tempted, and were unjustly accused and hurled to the earth. To seek and to save them, Jesus Himself came into this sinful world. As it is written:

“For the Son of Man┬ácame to seek and to save what was lost.” Luke 19:10
