The fact that God “created” man (i.e., male, female) in His image (Genesis 1:26) refers to our spirit; whereas the fact that God “formed” man (Genesis 2:7) refers to our physical body and our soul (i.e., intellect, will, emotions).

Spiritual death is a man’s (i.e., male, female) separation from God; whereas physical death is separation of a man’s spirit and soul (i.e., intellect, will, emotions) from the body.

All, the original branch and the grafted branch, are saved by the LORD God’s free gift of His only begotten Son Jesus. Our confession of this fact is confirmed by the Holy Spirit; nothing else. (Acts 15:1-18; Rom 8:1-2 & 10:9)

Around midnight, as Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to the LORD—-and the other prisoners were listening—-suddenly . . .. Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved . . .  Acts 16:25-31

Before every (person) there lies a wide and pleasant road that seems right but ends in death. Proverbs 14:12 (TLB)

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leaders unto life, and few there be that findeth. Matthew 7:14 (KJV)

Those reconciled to God by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus don’t “tarry” for the Holy Spirit because His outpouring was at Pentecost after the Resurrection and Ascension of the Lord Jesus; the infilling of the Holy Spirit is a gift of Abba Father to each of His sons & daughters by the blood of Jesus.
