And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.(1 Thessalonians 5:23) KJV
IF the body is the dust of the earth, AND the spirit is from God, THEN the soul is us: our consciousness and personality.

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.

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?

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 12:9) KJV

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.(Genesis 1:20-23) KJV
The biological definition of life and what the Bible describes as living aren’t the same thing. This is important to know as we see how the process of creation unfolded. Biology is the foundation of secular humanism.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood. And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.(Leviticus 17:11-14) KJV
We are forbidden to eat blood because the blood is the life of a creature. Is this equivalent to the soul? If I can “pour out my soul,” does it mean that the soul inhabits the blood?
