New Covenant Kingdom beings are vastly different from natural human beings.
We are spirit, body, mind and soul. They are body and soul.
Paul told the Corinthians and the Romans and us how to think of each other.
“And so from now on we don’t think of anyone only as a human being. Once we thought of Messiah only as a man, but not now anymore. So if anyone is in Messiah, he or she is a new being. The old things have passed away. They have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Messiah Jesus explains how he brought that blessing.
“Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
And this is the verdict: The Light has come into the world, but men loved the darkness rather than the Light because their deeds were evil . Everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come into the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever practices the truth comes into the Light, so that it may be seen clearly that what he has done has been accomplished in God.” John 3:14-21.
New Covenant Spirit — Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of God our Father.
Paul prays for the Ephesians and us that God our Father may give us that spirit. He prefaces his prayer showing since we have believed in Messiah, we were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit. Then enumerates the greatness of God’s power working in us. Ephesians 1:13-23 See HCSB verse references
New Covenant Body — Treasure in Jars of Clay
“Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us.” 2 Corinthians 4:7.
“Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary affliction is producing for us an eternal glory that is far beyond comparison. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (Romans 6:1–14).
God lives in our bodies. The curtain of the temple built with hands was torn in half. God no longer lives in natural temples. Our bodies are His Temple. He dwells in us by His Spirit. (1 Corinthians 3:16-21;6:15-20; Romans 2:1)
New Covenant Minds — we have the mind of Messiah.
“Now the natural man doesn’t receive the things of God’s Spirit, for they are foolishness to him; and he can’t know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is to be judged by no one. “For who has known the mind of the Lord that he should instruct him?” But we have Messiah’s mind.” 1 Corinthians 2:14-16 (1 Corinthians 2:6-13; 2 Corinthians 5:16-17; James 3:17-18)
“For I desire to have you know how greatly I struggle for you and for those at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and gaining all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Messiah, in whom all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden.” Colossians 2:1-3.
New Covenant Soul is our entire being made alive by the Holy Spirit in service of God.
“But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn’t have the Spirit of Messiah, he is not his. If Messiah is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him who raised up Yeshua from the dead dwells in you, he who raised up Messiah Yeshua from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.” Romans 8:9-11.
Our spirit, body, mind and soul interact in synergy in our being God created to be to His Glory.
