  18. 1 Sam 16:6, Prov 15:13, Zech 4:6, Ps 31:5, Is 30:1.

  19. kardiva heart; the essence of manís soul, the part of his constitution which decides how he will respond to what he has learned through his spirit, soul and body; through his mind, through gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit, through the prompting of his conscience, and through his emotionsóthe volitional part of man; also regarded as the center and source of the whole inner life, its thinking, feeling, and volition. There are four functions of manís soul which are manifested through manís heart because they are all centered in manís volition: conscious reasoning, subconscious holdings, the soul-expression, and God-implanted giftedness. The conscious part of manís being is where reasoning takes place, for it takes an act of the will to reason, Mk 2:6, 2:8; Lk 5:22. The subconscious part of manís being is where basic presuppositions, decisions made, and talents are stored or implanted as a result of volitional decisions made through conscious reasoning and God implanted giftedness. It is also the root of soul-expression, 1 Cor 14:25, Prov 27:19. When God commanded Moses to build a tabernacle he told him he would implant in the heart of certain individuals abilities and skills required to do the work of art necessary: "And in the hearts of all who are wise of heart I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded you," Exodus 31:6. Manís Soul is his unique personality having its roots in his subconscious, manifested through heart volition. Every time we make a decision about anything we learn or experience in life, that decision is permanently planted into our subconscious and our will becomes bound to it. The end result is that whether we are conscious of it or not, it affects everything we do. Our decisions make us who we are. When we think of someone, we think of the things they say and their physical mannerisms. We think about the facial expressions they make when talking or reacting to something they see or hear. All these things are our unique soul expressing itself through the will through our body. Without realizing it, these things control our will and the expression of our soul through our body. This is what Paul was talking about in a negative sense in Romans 7:14-24. The human soul is like a sculpture. Every decision and choice we make is a chisel working away at our soul and forming, so to speak, a work of art. Unfortunately, once the chisel has done its work, if left to ourselves, the work cannot be undone. This is why Jesus said that with men salvation is not possible. It is also why Jesus said we must be born from above. Once the damage is done, the soul cannot be changed or repaired. Whatever decisions and choices we make become a permanent part of our souls and a permanent expression of our souls through our volition. This is what Paul is expressing in frustration in Romans Chapter 7. Jesus tells us it cannot be repaired, that the only solution is to be born from above, recreated inside and out, John 3:5-7. Noun: feminine, 2588, prolonged from a primary karóLatin, cor, "heart". Rom 2:15. 2/213, 5/468/11, 28/CD, 31/CD, 28/CD, 31/CD, 37/CD.

  20. ble 1) heart which is the essence of his soul, it is the part of man which decides how he will respond to what he has learned through his spirit, soul and body; through his mind; through gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit; through the promptings of his conscience; and through his emotions. It is the volitional part of man. Manís Heart is the reality of manís soul. It is man himself who listens to his spirit: conscience, gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit and Godís revelation through communion; which searches out its library: memory, knowledge and past experience in the mind; and to the information gained through the five senses of his body and then decides independently of this information gained through all these avenues what it will follow or do. The Bible defines the heart as the volition of man. There are four functions of manís soul which are manifested through manís heart because they are all centered in manís volition: conscious reasoning, subconscious holdings, the soul-expression, and God-implanted giftedness. The conscious part of manís being is where reasoning takes place, for it takes an act of the will to reason (Mk 2:6, 2:8; Lk 5:22). Our self-consciousness is the very evidence of the existence of our soul. The Greek word that best describes the conscious aspect of manís constitution is nou'". Vine defines nous as ". . the seat of reflective consciousness, comprising the faculties of perception and understanding and those of feelings, judging, determining," 26/CD. Mark records in the Gospel of Mark that after Jesus forgave the sins of the paralytic, the scribes begin to argue among themselves as to how a man could have authority to forgive sins: "And immediately Jesus, aware in His spirit that they were reasoning that way within themselves, said to them, "Why are you reasoning about these things in your hearts?" Mark 2:8. The subconscious part of manís being is where basic presuppositions, decisions made, and talents are stored or implanted as a result of volitional decisions made through conscious reasoning and God implanted giftedness. It is also the root of soul-expression (1 Cor 14:25, Prov 27:19). The word t/yl;K] (kelayoth in Hebrew in the Old Testament and nefroiv (nephroi) in Greek in the New Testament translated reins are the words used to describe the subconscious aspect of manís constitution. "I, Yehovah, search the heart, I test the reins, even to give to each man according to his ways, according to the results of his deeds," Jer 17:10. ". . . and all the churches will know that I am He [Jesus] who searches the reins and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds," Rev 2:23. David Cairns in his book, The Image of God in Man, defines this word as meaning ". . . where motive, or that which is known to God but hidden to man," 46/34. Lawrence J. Crabb in his book, Effective Biblical Counseling, defining what he calls the unconscious mind states that it is ". . . the reservoir of basic assumptions which people firmly and emotionally hold about how to meet their needs of significanceand security," 47/91. When God commanded Moses to build a tabernacle he told him he would implant in the heart of certain individuals abilities and skills required to do the work of art necessary: "And in the hearts of all who are wise of heart I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded you" (Exodus 31:6). Why is it that we can intellectually have an understanding of something in theory but cannot perfect it in physical practice where as someone else can? Because the ability to exercise our heart in that skill has not been given to us by God. If, however, God chooses, He can enlarge the capacity of our heart to be able to exercise skills we have not been able to do before. In a dream, in 1 Kings 3:5, God said to Solomon, "Ask what you wish me to give you." Solomon said to God in reply, "Give Your servant a hearing heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?" 1 Kings 3:9. God states in reply, "Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart, so that there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you," 1 Kings 3:12. Later the writer of 1 Kings tells us, "Now Elohim gave Solomon wisdom and very great discernment and largeness of heart, like the sand that is on the seashore. And Solomonís wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the sons of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt," 1 Kings 4:29-30. 2) middle, midst, inner part.
