In this article: Does the Bible Tell Us Where Jesus Was the Three Days Between His Death and Resurrection?, it is mentioned being and spirit being, "but since Jesus never sinned, His spirit remained alive, even though He suffered death “in the flesh”(1 Peter 3:18). Death can not truly occur to a Spirit Being". What is meant by spirit and spirit being in this context?

Thanks

"Spirit being" is a reference to a spiritual entity not of God as for example a demon, unclean spirit or ghost.

The term implies a personality of spirit only, a disembodied entity. It is not a term used or even referenced in the Bible. Some pastors muddy the water by claiming that a living human is a spirit being, but this is neither accurate nor true in the Biblical sense.

A living human is generally referred to as a soul - body, mind and spirit. It is the sum total of it's parts.

A spirit being is a disembodied spirit, but a spirit that demonstrates personality.

The Bible forbids dabbling in the occult, witchcraft, spiritism or even speaking to these things. They are extremely dangerous in that their influence can trap and destroy an unregenerate person without mercy. Even Christians have a hard time dealing with these spiritual parasites.

This sort of influence is what the Bible calls "the power of sin".

It is attracted by human sin and is given its authority and power over the sinner by the sinner himself. (See Genesis 3)

Stay away from it. You are playing with black fire and if you continue you shall surely be burnt.
Beware.
The risk is permanent scars to the flesh, in the mind and on your own spirit.
Ultimately death will result. This stuff is so dangerous that even a spiritually regenerate person may suffer permanent physical disability from contact. Stay away!

This is not a play toy. This is not Hollywood 'fun'. This is horror in the fullest deepest sense of the word.

Repent and be saved in the name of Jesus Christ and He shall make you free and clean.

and that's just me, hollering from the choir loft...

Choir Loft: What is an unclean spirit, and what is a ghost? What do you mean by spirit in "The risk is permanent scars to the flesh, in the mind and on your own spirit"? You say The Bible forbids speaking to these things, is that both if they are good and bad, and where in The Bible does that say?


And from the article:
What is meant by: "Death can not truly occur to a Spirit Being, like Jesus was and is God." ?
