a living soul. He did NOT ‘receive’ a living soul!! separate from himself that ‘stayed on’ animated, just as a cartoon character is either fully animated or dead- ALL of it.
The various spirits these psychics, clairvoyants, soothsayers and tarot card readers contact are NOT of God- the ONLY existing person (NO ‘respect’ for persons, plural) and His spirit of concerted Oneness- and there to interfere with delays, detours, misconceptions and destruction. Remember, this world is governed by Satan and read Job 1 and 2; Matthew 4:8 to 10. The inner conversation in Jesus’ mind further points out that ‘evil’ mostly exists to teach depth of rightness by playing the devil’s advocate, just as long as one does not “eat” it (absorbs ‘evil’ for itself as ‘true’, since ‘evil’ cannot be proved,) or touch it (make it real.) Genesis 3:3.
Physical birth is (1st) death to spirit, symbolized by the cutting of the umbilical cord by man himself, the expulsion of the only true nourishment “from above”, the placenta (womb containing solely the blood of the father!!), as well as the location of the genitals close to defecation and urination. Therefore, NOBODY is ‘alive’- hence NOTHING TO ‘SAVE’. A man is only counted as “alive”, when BORN-AGAIN of the spirit via transfiguration (metanoia and metamorphosis) and baptized with fire, whereby NOTHING GOES WITHOUT JESUS THE CHRIST.
Even a good Samaritan is only to get involved, IF a man is already injured.
See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.Deuteronomy 32:39
Only God decides who, where and when anybody lives eternally OR dies of hopeless ignorance.
…through the grace of the LORD Jesus Christ we shall be saved…Acts 15:11
“Saving” stands not for ‘saving the body, while keeping the mind as bible-spiritually ignorant as it is now’ (Cryonics??! Organ transplants??! Bunkers??! Seatbelts??! Helmets??! Vitamins??!), but “attaining and saving the quickening spirit” by the LIVING example of Jesus The Christ, sole representative of God’s Life-Force, via congruence with the mind of God.
The ca. threescore and ten years in this world- God’s school house and audition for rule keeping- were allotted for to FIND, KNOW + EVENTUALLY EMULATE God, each individual by working on themselves here + now- WITHIN (the kingdom)- not ‘on the other guy’!!, or ‘in outer space (outer darkness)’.
