The Soul and Spirit of the Natural Body, and the Spiritual Body of the First Resurrection

When God breathed into man the "breath of life", which is also the "spirit of life", for there is no distinction between "breath" and "spirit" in the Hebrew and Greek, man became a "living soul". And this soul, is the "being" of man. Just as man is given life by the breath/spirit, so are animals given life by the breath/spirit, "who knows whether the spirit of man goes upward and the spirit of the beast goes down into the earth". And just as man became a living soul, so did animals become living souls, "let the waters swarm with swarms of living souls...". And this was the natural body man was sown into, which is different than the spiritual body of an angel, or the body Jesus Christ was resurrected into, which is a body of power, that is not only able to take on the form of flesh and bones, but is also able to transform itself into the form of spirit, which is the form of wind, or back into the form of flesh and bones. And this is how angels are able to vanish from sight, or re-appear back in the form of men, that are even able to eat and drink and be touched.

I have a study on this on my blog, along with all scripture references, simply search "wisdomofgod The Soul and Spirit of the Natural Body" on Google.
