Often times in The Bible, we hear that world. But what is a Spirit, exactly?

Easton's Revised Bible Dictionary

Quote:
Spirit
(Heb. ruah; Gr. pneuma), properly wind or breath.

1. In #2Th 2:8 it means "breath,"
2. in #Ec 8:8 the vital principle in man.
3. It also denotes the rational, immortal soul by which man is distinguished #Ac 7:59 1Co 5:5 6:20 7:34
4. the soul in its separate state #Heb 12:23
5. an apparition #Job 4:15 Lu 24:37,39
6. an angel #Heb 1:14
7. a demon #Lu 4:36 10:20
8. This word is used also metaphorically as denoting a tendency #Zec 12:10 Lu 13:11
9. In #Ro 1:4 1Ti 3:16 2Co 3:17 1Pe 3:18 it designates the divine nature.

It is the eternal part of a person, like a soul or a ghost. No one really knows a good definition but it's the part of you that exists forever.

The spirit body is created instantaneously when a soul incarnates for the first and only time. Each soul has its own energy and this energy is the spirit of each individual soul.

The spirit body is truly a spirit creation for such is the design of it, to sustain the soul in the Mansion Worlds after its mortal physical life is complete. The spirit body is robust and tangible and does change and has the ability to change as the soul is changed by the transforming effects of Divine Love. For instance, when a spirit in the First Divine Love Sphere reaches the Celestial Heavens their spirit body will have adapted and changed as the soul has adapted and changed by receiving the Divine Love. The spirit body is not a fixed item upon its creation, and it has the extraordinary ability to be mutable so that the spirit body of an individual always reflects the condition of that individual soul. When you see a spirit in the First Divine Love Sphere and then you see a spirit well advanced into the Celestial Heavens, the Divine Love has truly changed the soul and the spirit body in appearance between two such individuals is vastly different.

The soul is an attribute and each individual has from this attribute, many attributes contained within this primary attribute which is soul. Even the physical body is an attribute of the soul; if one sees soul as first and foremost all that is to it and from it are attributes. The Divine Love perfects and engages these attributes and the spirit within each soul, which is an attribute too, become more active as a soul individualises with God for the individual has sufficient perceptual condition to relate and reflect with it and God. Even ones soul perceptions are an attribute of the soul. The Celestial spirits are very aware of their working and living attributes of soul and they need to be for this is how the experience is when living with God so that relationship and communication can transpire. These Celestial spirits can work with the spirit of their soul so that an interaction between soul and Laws can transpire and this helps one to learn and become content and happy in their life with God.

very gentle and polite inquiry: whose thoughts are these, originally?

It was given in January of 2008 to one of our highly skilled mediums. I, personally, don't do messages as far as it goes to publish or share. Mine, as yet, are still personal because they have to do with my own soul growth and my own guidance.

The messags that are published either in books or on web pages are to share with the world and not for personal gain. All celestials request this and they are not to be hidden in any way, only to get them out there in any way we can. So, if I share them here, I am not violating any copywrite laws as celestial do not put copywrites on any messages. And the above is only part of the message. I chose to put on here what pertained to the OP's question.
