The Dead — Where Are They? 7 Man became a living soul

Man Became a Living Soul

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” (Ge 2:7 AV)

Gen. 2:7, after describing the uniting of the body and the breath of lives, states that the result of the union was that the “man became a living soul.”

It has been thought by some that the man received a soul unto himself; but the Scriptures use a different word, whose significance should not be overlooked. All are fully acquainted with the difference between “received” and “became.”

Before God started the breathing process (by breathing into the man’s nostrils “the breath of lives”), there was no being nor animation. The breathing process started, animation resulted; and the hitherto inanimate form “became a living soul” or being. The union of breath and body produced the soul or being; the dissolution of that union between body and breath means the death of that soul or being.
This was the condemnation that Adam brought upon himself. When he stopped breathing his power to live ceased; the soul or being died, as the Scriptures say,

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” — Ezek. 18: 4.
