Netzarim, Original followers of Yeshua & His 12
In Hebrew / Messianic thought the "Nefesh" is the intimate internal dwelling of the "Ruach" (Spirit) after becoming to its point of due worth the Ruach rests as it did upon the "Altar" as it is written "until the spirit be poured upon us from on high" Isaiah 32 this was fulfilled upon the feast of fifty (Pentecost)
When spirit and soul have readied or prepared themselves (fasting, cleansing, praying , rededicating ) they recieve the "super soul" (neshamah) or in dwelling of the divine .
The study of these grades of soul yeilds an understanding of higher wisdom that links together a number of mysteries.
It is Nefesh that holds the lowest stirring to which the body adheres ; just like a candle flame whose flame adheres close to the wick with out which the candle could not be more than a ball of wax.
When fully kindled it becomes the throne for light . Is it not the same for man?? We arrive to different stages of Holy (Kadosh) (Ps 16:3)
When Avrim (Abraham ) entered into the land Yahwey appeared to him , Avrim recieved Nefesh then journeyed south. (Gen 12:9) and recieved Ruach . He attained the last summit now cleaving to Elohim through neshamah
We pass through our own grades of belief and understanding and build our "altar" to Adonai being put to test often seduced by demonic essences , but proving our selves we as Avrim return to our abode (dwelling place) as it is written he (Avrim ) went up out of Egypt, and thus attained the highest grade of faith and cleaved to Elohim
