God’s Word Divides Soul and Spirit
This phrase, “piercing even to the division of soul and spirit” is an interesting one. Scripture, at times, uses the terms “soul” and “spirit” almost synonymously to refer to the immaterial part of man.
But they are not interchangeable terms in every way. There are times when the scriptures separate them, making it very obvious that these are two separate issues. We know from the context here, for example, that soul and spirit are not just two words saying the same thing.
How do we know that? Because the Word of God is piercing even to the division of soul and spirit. The Word of God separates soul and spirit, distinguishing between the two.
There is an enormous need in the American church world for the Word of God to cut deeply to the dividing of soul and spirit. Because the Word of God has not been given its place to rightly divide these things, there is much confusion over soulishness and true spirituality.
