When God tells us to immerse ourselves in the Word; He is saying to immerse or baptize your soul in the Word of Truth. Your soul is your mind, will and emotions. This is the reality: Your body is the outer court, Your soul is the inner court, Your spirit is the Holy of Holies. This is the construction of the Old Testament Temple of God in man. In your Holy of Holies is where the Holy Spirit dwells. Here is where all the gifts that God has given you from the foundation of the world is to be released at their appointed time. Your soul is where everything that comes through your gates (eyes, ears, etc.) circulates. It is where things are commanded and give direction. Here in the soul you make choices. The condition of this place must be well kept. In other words you have to be careful of what you allow in your gates. If it is not taken care of, it directly affects the outer court (the body or natural realm) and the Holy of Holies (your spirit). It is a direct connection to all parts of the three parts being of man. The soul must be clean and carefully watched over. If it is not the adversary sends his strongholds to dirty up the place with un-forgiveness, doubt, unbelief which are all manifested emotions influenced by the stronghold spirit called fear. When they dirty up the soul the proper commands cannot be transmitted to the other parts of your being. We will also be hard pressed to hear from God which will cause us to move in our flesh; without reward. This is a very powerful word the released to me and it has to be meditated on. Keeping your soul clean is a daily process of working out your soul salvation with fear (reverence for God) and trembling.
