When Were Souls Created?

May 15

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

(Jeremiah 1:5) KJV

Our study of Dragon taxonomy led us to consider the nature, identity and location of Satan. This intersected with our deductive exploration of the difference between soul and spirit.

Who is Satan?

May 13

Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

(Luke 22:3) KJV

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

(Revelation 12:3, 9) KJV

Satan is described as a great red dragon, but he also entered Judas Iscariot. Obviously a great red dragon didn’t enter Judas Iscariot, so how did Satan do it?

God: אֱלֹהִ֑ים – elohim

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

(Genesis 1:1-2) ESV

A word frequently translated God is the Hebrew elohim. What’s interesting is that the word is plural, denoting more than one. It’s not a problem because we can resolve it with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Into the Heart

And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself.

(John 13:2-4) NKJV

The soul is one aspect of life. The Spirit is another.

The Spirit is a vapor, for example Oxygen, which binds with the hemoglobin molecule in red blood cells to animate a body through metabolic processes. The spirit/body entity serves as the host or tabernacle for a soul.

In My Mind

And I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who shall do according to what is in my heart and in my mind. And I will build him a sure house, and he shall go in and out before my anointed forever.

(1 Samuel 2:35) ESV

We’ve seen that God has a heart, it turns out that He also has a mind. Using on our method of deduction this raises some interesting deductive questions, each of which has an answer which leads to another deduction.
