How Does It Work?

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Body, Soul + Spirit= Wholeness or Salvation.

Adam and Eve were created with all three, then they lost the spirit. Genesis 3:9; And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where [art] thou? Their actions caused them to lose the spirit and the fellowship or direct access to God. This is the current state of all who are not born again. They are only body and soul. Or in the Bible natural man.

1 Cor. 2:14 But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

Natural man does not have spirit. He is dead spiritually or without it. Quickened is added to the text here, but in verse five it is, syzōopoieō in the Greek. This is to make alive, to give life, and to make alive together in the body of believers.

David described it like this; 

Psalms 40:2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings. 3. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise unto our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. 4. Blessed [is] that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 5. Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.

John described it like this:

1 John 1:3; Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2 a. Beloved, now are we the sons of God!

Romans 10:9-10, is an act of creation by God in us. That’s how it works.
