Spirits do exist. Do you agree? If you are one of those who believe in God, your answer must be yes. God is a spirit; and He did exist from eternity.
(John 4:24) “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
He existed before anything came into being.
(Psalms 90:2) “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.”
Do you agree? If your answer is yes, another question follows.
If God is a spirit, does God, who is a spirit, has a spirit? Definitely!
(I Corinthians 2:11) “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
Do you agree?
The prophets, including Prophet Abraham, existed before the Lord Jesus Christ was born in the flesh of Mary.
(Genesis 20:1-7) “And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar. And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah. But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife. But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation? Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this. And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her. Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.”
Abraham is a prophet, according to God. With all the prophets of God in Israel, they were all recipients of the instructions of an existing spirit — the spirit of Christ.
(1 Peter 1:10) “Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.”
The spirit of Christ was in them (the Spirit of Christ which was in them). It must be understood that even Abraham received (the Spirit of Christ which was in them) that spirit. The question is, “can somebody not existing have an existing spirit”? Palpak ka tumbok! Hindi mo natumbok.
But others (like Tumbok) claim that Jesus Christ is the seed of Abraham. How can He exist before Abraham when He is just a seed of Abraham?
