Im going to speak about stuff today that is so good. Whether you are a
kid in Primary school, old folk, not educated at all or highly educated; you
need to understand this. Keep your spirit awake and alert to understand
what we are talking about.
Last week, we started speaking about your spirit and how God has created
you. When He created you, He created you out of the dust of the earth.
Look at yourself and say, Dust you are. Dust you will return. You were
laying there a corpse, in Adam. Then God breathed His own life, His own
Spirit; not that which was created, not of another spirit. He breathed His
own life, His own being. He breathed into you. You are spirit, thats who
you are.
We spoke how you are to be ruled and governed, living by the Spirit and
not by the flesh. So, if you receive the Spirit of God, man is designed to
inherentlythat means, inherently means what you inherit as part of what
you were created to be; inherently capable of hearing God. You were
designed with an inherent capacity, ability, and capability to hear God. If
you cannot hear God, then you are disconnected from the Spirit of God.
Your spirit is disconnected from God and lying dormant, waiting for such a
time that you are restored to your original design. If you dont, if you are
not connected to God, if your spirit is lying dormant, you now survive on
the earth (I use that word survive purposely) you survive on the earth by
the sweat of your own brow. When Adam was separated from His father
remember Adam in the genealogy of Scriptureson of God. Adam is
created as a Son of God. When he was separated from his Father, he had
to live on the earth by the sweat of his own brow. He was no longer
connected to the economy of heaven which he was designed to operate
from. We were designed to operate from the economy of heaven which
was meant for our living here on the earth. For what was meant to come
from heaven into earth, there is an economy which supports that, the
economy of heaven. But when you are cut off from that, when you are cut

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

off from the economy of heaven, you live by the sweat of your own brow
and you have to survive.
So, with heaven and earth being in us, both heaven and earth in you... Did
you realize that? You are made both of the stuff of earth and heaven. That
is what makes you unique. Only a part of you, only the earth part was
created. The other part was issued out of God. Do you get that? We were
designed to live on earth, from heaven. The reason we were made of both
part, we were given the intelligence to understand what is going on in the
earth and the ability to translate the wisdom of heaven so that the
wisdom of heaven becomes the visible manifestation here on the earth.
Do you see the picture? There is a function within you that interprets that
which comes from heaven to make it useful here on earth. That
interpretive function is called your soul. So now we speak of a spirit, a
soul, and a body.
So spirit, who we are issued forth from God, when we are disconnected
from God, lying dormant, disconnected from the power sourceuseless.
You only have use for your creative design and purpose on earth when you
are connected to God. The function within us that translates that which
comes from heaven into earthly context is your soul. 1 Thessalonians 5:23
speaks of your spirit, your soul and your body.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and
may your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the
coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are clearly more than just a body and more than just a spirit. There is
a soul component. You live by your spirit. In computer terms, we said last
week, informs the software which informs the hardware of who you are, in
terms of the function you are to be performing. Because we have a
purpose, by God, there is a reason why we are here on the earth because
we are able to respond and choose to fulfil and align with that purpose or
not, you will be held accountableACCOUNT-ABLE. You are able to receive
the account and rewardwhybecause you were able to respond. You
cant be ACCOUNT-ABLE if you are not RESPONSE-ABLE. Fair enough? He
would be an unjust God to hold us ACCOUNT-ABLE if we are not
RESPONSE-ABLE. Because we are RESPONSE-ABLEwe are will also be
able to receive an account. Now, the part of you that is response-able is
the choice center. The center which processes all this information that
makes the decision to choose life or choose deaththat is your soul. The
soul is the interpretive function that translates that which comes from
heaven into earth. Is that too complicated?

Proverbs 4:23 says:


Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of
life.
Im going to talk a lot about the soul today. I want you to understand that
there are many different words for what comprises your soul, your heart,
your mind, your will, your emotions, and your inward partseven your
kidney. There are scriptures that say, He tests your kidneys, your inward
parts. In computer terms, its your motherboard. The motherboard of
your life is your soul. Out of these issues, springs forth all the issues of life
pertaining to you. The components of these inward parts are many.
Im going to look at one word very quickly. Im going to run through your
mind, when you speak of your mind. Did you know that your mind is not
your brain? Your brain is an organ in your body. Your mind is that which
translates that which comes from heaven into manifestation on the earth.
You can love with your mind. Do you see the component of the inward
parts that you love God. 2) You can call to remembrance. 3) You can cast
your mind to reflect. 4) Your mind can be doubtful. You can have a
doubtful mind. And well speak of a double mind. Or, you mind can be
ready, willing.

5) You can receive the word with readiness. Or, your mind can be humble,
when you receive with humility, thats a state of your mind. Your mind can
be reprobate, being given over to a debased mind, a corrupted mind, a
distorted mind. Or, you can have a mind which is in pain. There is Godly
sorrow and theres sorrow of the world. Both are states of minds. I will
explain how you can one in God and one in the world. You can set your
mind on or set your mind on things on the earth. You can know the mind
of Christ. Your mind gives you the ability to know and understand. You can
be of one mind when we are together. How can that you be if mind was
your brain? You can have a fervent mind. A zealous mind, a mind which is
earnest. You can have a sound mind or a disciplined mind. Your mind has
the ability for moral understanding. You can have the same mind of Christ
which can understand or cease from sin.

Philippians 3:19 whose end is destruction,
whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in
their shame who set their mind on earthly

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you
which was also in Christ Jesus.

You can have the same mind as Christ. All these innermost parts are
created by God to receive from heaven that which is the spiritual reality
and translated into the earth. Your mind is major component of this.
Remember when we said that the software is that which informs the
hardware. Your soul is the unit that processes that which comes from
heaven. Your soul is not evil. Your soul is not a problem. We dont get rid of
the soul or the flesh. We want to put it into its proper context. So it
functions as you were created and designed to function. You soul has a
very specific function.
If you take the analogy of a computer, Im not an expert, Im still learning.
Your soul is like the motherboard. On top of it is installed the CPU, the
Central Processing Unit. This is the kind of function that your mind has
within the context of your soul. If you receive the software program, your
computer can be designed for great and wonderful things. If you dont
Page | 5

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

have the right program loaded, it will never function. You can have a
capacity for great things but not have the right CPU loaded. But when the
right CPU is installed and it receives the right programming; it comes alive
for its intended purpose for design. You only start to flourish only when
your soul processes as its intended. The programming, the information
which comes from heaven, then you come alive as that CPU, your mind,
begins to interpret accurately according to your design. So you can either
function according to the sensual or the spiritual. It is your mind which is
the key component which will decide what you live by: life or death. While
you were still separated from your Father, your spirit was dormant. The
only information that your mind had to work with is what it saw on the
earth, in the flesh. Once you are reconnected to your Father and your
spirit comes alive you can be reconnected to the design that your soul
was to function in. That is to draw from heaven and translate it into the
earth.
I laid that as the foundation. Im going to do a quick word study for you.
Im going to show you some words in Greek. The contrast for that which is
your soul is and that which is your spirit. That word which refers to that
which is natural.
Your soul is the word PSUCHIKO PSYXIKOS: What is natural or
earthly, soul, natural identity.
Contrasts to PNEUMATIKOS what is of spirit
Jude 1:19 - These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not
having the Spirit
The word PHREN is a word that is the root word of many words of the
word mind in scripture. It means, heart, mindset, that which comes
from Remember we said last week, you can have the mind of Christ.
This word PHREN is the understanding of the root of the word diaphragm.
What regulate your life, what controls your heart so to speak, is your mind
and your innermost thoughts. Its a difficult word to describe in English.
Its a combination between cognitive and the inward thought processes.
PHREN heart, thought, mindset, inner outlook (to rein or curb)
feelings, mind, understanding, midriff (what regulates life root of
diaphragm), breathing and heartbeat properly controlled. It
combines the deep inward feelings, emotions gut and cognitive
thought process aspects of thinking.

1 Corinthians 14:20 Brethren, do not be children in


understanding; however, in malice be babes but in understanding,
be mature.
As we go on from the word PHREN is the word PHRON. Your mind affects
what you do. Your personal opinion fleshes itself out in action. It shows
itself in these words.
PHRONEO exercise mind, opinion, be disposed toward, interest in,
affection set on, regulate (moderate) from within, as innerperspective (insight) shows itself in corresponding, outward
behavior. Your mind affects what you do; personal opinion fleshing
itself out in action.
PHRONEMA inclination or purpose be carnally or spiritually
minded. Mindset/worldview innermost perspective regulates
outward behavior your opinion determines how you act.
PHRONESIS intellectual or moral insight, wisdom
SOPHRON means safe. You make your mind sound.
SOPHRON safe soos (Root word for safety)
SOPHRO (safe) in mind, sound mind Sober mind.
SOPHRONEO sound mind
SOPHRONIZO - to make sound mind, to discipline, to teach to be
sober.
Theres another root word that I want us to look at and its the word
NOUS. It means the conclusion you reach by using mental exercise; to
have certain feelings, certain reasoning feeling or thoughts. It is through
this process how we actually receive the thoughts of God by faith. Faith is
something we dont work out ourselves but it is something God works in
us.
NOUS mind, reach conclusion by mental effort, exercise the mind,
intellect, understanding, thought, feeling, will, reason, its how we as
believers receive Gods thoughts by faith.
NOIEO Understand, conceive, and apprehend, to use the mind.
ENNOIA thought, intention, purpose, thought out attitude.

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

This word NOUS is the reasoning that we could either have based on what
we see only on the earth or the reasoning that we have based having the
mind of Christ. Isnt that incredible? I want you to understand that there
are so many things about the mind in Scripture.
The word DIA means back and forth; this side and that side. Its a
consideration. Its throwing an idea back and forth. Ideas are important in
having the mind of Christ. Your mind is this function you are given.
METANOIA is the changing of you mind, in your inner man once youve
been with the flesh or with the spirit and now you think differently
afterwards.
DIA back and forth
DIANOIA - disposition, thought, think, consider, conceive,
understand; Comes from inherent capacity to exercise moral
reasoning.
DIALOGISMAI logic take into account, decide, consider. (The
word dialogue comes from this)
METANOIA change of, repent, change the inner man (after being
with), think differently afterwards.
Romans 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness,
forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of
God leads you to repentance?
Lets get back into You actually have two minds, now that weve looked
at all those words. Did you know you have two minds? Your spirit and your
soul are almost mirror images of each other. This is new for you so just get
it. Y our spirit and your soul are meant to work in congruence, fully c
compatible with one another. That is why they are also like mirrors. You
have a mind of the soul and the mind of the spirit. Now, some of you need
to do some Bible study to figure out the connections here. They are meant
to function together. Your mind is supposed to process information so that
youll have a conviction to what is reality. Your conviction of reality is
based on what your mind processes from the information or the stimuli it
receives, the programming that is put into it. Your spirit and your soul
have different realms from which they get their information from. Both
mind of the spirit and mind of the soul process information so that you can
be convicted of what is reality. But the mind of the spirits realm is
heaven. The mind of the souls realm is the earth. So when you were cut
off from God, when Adam was cut off from God; the only information he
Page | 8

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

had for his mind, for his soul had to gather and process information was of
the world, worldly, what is fleshly. He wasnt connected to the spirit. So
everything is processes so that is the mind of the soul that is according to
the desires of the flesh. That is where many of us live because the
information we get is from the world around us and the systems of the
world inform us to what is real. We hear, we feel, we experience stuff and
our mind is fleshly, soulish. The only eyes we see from are the eyes that
Adam saw from because the eyes of his understanding were open, the
eyes of his soul. He realized I have to take care of myself.
The mind of the spirit has a source. The mind of the soul has a source. The
mind of the spirits source is revelation. The mind of the souls source of
information is reasoningrevelation or reasoning? REVELATION is
higher than REASONING! When you identify yourself in a culture that is
from the earth, it makes you less than what you actually are. The
information you get is totally disconnected from the truth which comes by
revelation from heaven. The culture that you so hold onto and the things
that you connect with, go and riot for, picket for and go and get mad at
other people about that culture are much less than whom you are.
On earth, this is how your mind work, like a CPU, you observe, you get
information, then you process with reasoningthen you synthesize by
comparing this and that and then you theorize. You come up with your
conviction (theory) of what is real, in the earth, in the soul. Thats how the
wisdom of the earth works. If thats the information that your mind
processes, that will determine that you are less than who you are created
to be.
But the mind of your spirit receives wisdom from above which is a gift
from your Father. The mind of your spirit receives revelation from above
that is a gift from your Father to inform you of who you are. If you have
the mind of the spirit, all of a sudden, you can process what is real. Your
spirit and your soul are mirror images of one another. Your spirit has a
mind that will help you determine what reality is. Your spirit has a will that
will form for you the economy from which you will operate. Your spirits
will receive an economy from heaven. Your soul will say the economy will
be from the sweat of my own brow, what I can do for myself.
Your spirit has a mind, a will, a heart; it will provide the motivation for
what you do. What is the motivation? Lovelove, is at the basis for
everything that comes out of the heart of the spirit. Sam says there are
only two emotions. One is of God and the other one, man invented. What
happens to Adam when he was disconnected from his Father? What did he
Page | 9

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

say when his father was looking for him in the garden? I am afraid. Ive
invented fear. Why fear? He realized that the economy available to do
what he needs to do is his own ability and he invented fear. All of a
sudden, he began to fear that for his inability to provide for himself from
his own economy. He was ruled by his soul. God never designed us to rule
by the soul. He designed for the spirit to rule over the soul. Then you will
see the perfect design of why God created us to be spirit, soul and body.
Your soul is a mirror image of your spirit. They are meant to be in perfect
sync together. What you interpret as real, what you translate in terms of
the actions and purpose of your life is that which is informed by the spirit.
Im trying to make it so you can understand. Im not just a victim here. I
dont need to survive by the sweat of my own brow. That was never your
design. That was just because you were disconnected from our Father.
Now that we are connected to our Father, we are connected the spirit. We
have the mind of the spirit. We can live by the revelation of what is true
coming from heaven and we can process that for our purpose here on
earth. To manifest our Fathers glory, to represent him exactly in sonship.
When you get connected to our Father; when your spirit is now connected
to God, from which it was issued to you, you are now connected as you
were designed to be; you receive a new investment of the Holy Spirit. It is
an investment that will NOT again make you to be slaves to fear. This is a
spirit of sonship by which we call out, Abba, Father. We are free. We are
delivered from the spirit of fear which is not of God. The spirit that is of
God is that of a sound mind.
Hes not given you a spirit of fear but of the spirit of love, the emotion of
the heart of the spirit; of power, which has to do with your dynasty family
connection; and a sound mind because you are now connected to the
accurate information and your mind has been disciplined. Youve been
fenced in with the accurate information with the revelation of heaven and
you can live according to what is real and you can process that and live
with purpose, not as an orphan trying to survive, living in fear.
I want us to go to Romans 12:1-3:
1

I beseech you therefore, brethren by the mercies of God that you


present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God which
is your reasonable service.
2
And do not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that you may prove what isnt good and
acceptable and perfect will of God.
3
For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among
you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but
Page | 10

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of


faith.
You can see all the mind and soul stuff in there. Can we go through that
quickly?
I beseech you by the mercies of God (vs 1) The deep feelings God
has for us all, powerfully shown and shared in those following Him. Did
you realize that God has deep feelings for you that He powerfully wants to
show and share in you if you follow Him? This is what He is beseeching
you based on these feelings that God has for you; you present your
bodies as a living sacrifice. Thats pretty straight forward.
Holyholy means to be set apart and be different from the world and be
like God, to be like your Father. To be acceptable to God which is your
reason, its logic, its not logic to the world, but literally logical to God. It
works from the divine reasoning that comes from God that works into you
by faith. Gods logic, His divine reasoning, comes to you through faith.
Faith is a measure He gives us. Its logic from God which determines how
we are to serve him.
Then it says, not be conformed.do not assume the same outward form
or expression by following the same pattern or mold of the world. Dont be
systematize by the thinking and the systems and the schemes of the
world that you see on the outward appearance form you inner conviction.
Dont follow that mold. But be transformed, to change after being with.
That is the word that repentance comes fromchange your outer form in
keeping with the inner reality. Who you are changes in keeping with the
revelation you receive by the mind of your spirit. Be transformed by
renewing which means a change of heart and life; to make fresh, to made
new by Gods power so your heart is changed and made new by Gods
power.
The heart of your mind, that mind is PNEUS, the capacity to think, that
you would prove, to test, to reveal, to show, that which is genuine that
which is true and by its very nature good. What is good, acceptable, which
means pleasing to God and perfectmature. Be ye perfect even as your
Father is perfect, mature. We are talking about the mature, perfect Will of
God; to produce what God wants. The will of God is the desire of God. The
preferred Will of God, the best offer has to make is His perfect Will. God
has the best offer possible to be made for you, which is Gods desire for
you. Dont think of yourself more highly than you should. Dont be high
minded. Dont lack humility and miss a true sense of reality by thinking,
Page | 11

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

reasoning apart from Gods thoughts; that which you think is your good
ideas and having a high opinion of yourself outside of being in Christ then
what you should be.
But think soberly. It has to do with that safe mind, self-controlled, true
moderation, as God has dealt with you a measure of faith. This faith which
God gives us is a trust, a belief, a confidence in the faithfulness of God; it
is Gods divine persuasion in you. Its not something that you stir up. Its
different from human belief or the confidence we get from our own belief.
This is faith that involves your belief but is Gods persuasion in you. Okay?
The Lord continues to birth faith in the yielded believer so that they can
know what He prefers, what is the persuasion of His will and you can trust
Him always receiving of God. God has given us all this measure, of this
persuasion we can believe in.
Now you need to pay attention. Lets paraphrase. Romans 12:
1 I make a call to you up close and personal, by the deep
feelings God has for all of us, powerfully shown and shared in
those following Him, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice,
set apart to be different from the world and like God, which will
please and be acceptable to God, which is your service of
reasonable logic from God (divine reasoning) that you can actually
know and which works in you through faith.
2
And do not assume a similar outward form (expression) by
following the same pattern (mold) of this world, but transform
(changing form in keeping with inner reality) by the change of
heart and life, being made fresh and new by Gods power in your
reasoning faculty that is God-given, that you may put to the test
and reveal what is genuine, what is good by its nature as it
originates from God and is empowered by Him, and what is wellpleasing because it is fully acceptable and mature, which has now
become complete (full grown) in all its parts, going through the
necessary stages to reach the end-goal of the desire (wish),
preferred-will of the best offer of God.
3
For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is
among you, not to think beyond appropriate limits; high-minded,
lacking humility and a true sense of reality of himself than he
ought to, but to have your personal opinion fleshing itself out
in action with a safe mind that has a God-controlled perspective
(that breathes for you) and which blends the extremities of truth on
both sides of a matter, as God has given to each one of us a

Page | 12

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

measure of Gods divine persuasion that involves you confidently


trusting in His faithfulness.

Ephesians 4:23-25 says:


22

That you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man
which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be
renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new
man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and
holiness.

Cut off what the old man wants you to see, put it off and be renewed in
the spirit of your mind. You put on a new man, this new man which was
created according to God, issued out of Godput on that manin
holiness, to be different from the world and like God.
I can see you do Bible studies and the word coming alive.You will have a
paradigm shift. Colossians 3:10:
10 and have clothed yourselves with the new nature, which is being
renewed in full knowledge, consistent with the image of the One
who created it.
Clothe yourself, have this mind that was also in Christ, be in youclothe
yourself with the nature of the Spirit that you are now connected to your
Father. You are no longer an orphan living in a spirit of fear, having to do it
in your own economy, by the sweat of your brow but you are now
connected to your Father, He supplies the economy from heaven for the
purpose for which He has created you on earth. Clothe yourself with this
nature and renew your mind. Be renewed in full knowledge, in full
understanding, in an accurate understanding that is consistent with the
image of the One who created you.
Do you understand why the god of this world would want to darken your
mind? Do you understand why there would be mind-blinding spirits that
would want to keep you operating in the flesh so that you are occupied
with the things which are worldly and not occupied with the revelation
that comes from your Father as to who you are and what is available for
you as an economy to fully function in that which your Father has called
you to be; the image of your Father here on earth. Theres a purpose for
Page | 13

The Role of the Soul | Expressions series | By: Peter Snyman

which you are created; a purpose for which we are RESPONSE-ABLE. That
is why He has given you a CPU, a mindHes given you a soul to be able
to process this and to be responsiblerespond appropriately, renewing
your mind living by the spirit. So now you know, not only are you to live by
the spirit but you also know that God actually designed you with a soul
that can process this so that you are able to translate it into why am I here
on earthto radiate my Fathers glory, to be the exact representation of
my His Being; to display His very essence and nature. May the character
of my Father be displayed through me. I cant do it when I am walking in
the flesh, fulfilling the desires of the lust of the flesh because my mind is
only fleshly, in the earth. But I set my mind on Christ because I now have
access to the thoughts of God directly to be uploaded into who I am. The
mind of my spirit is connected because I can know the mind of Christ, I
can have the thoughts of God, I can have the revelation of heaven
uploaded into me so I can function optimally for what He has designed me
to do.
Lets pray.
