Ec 3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
Ec 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it

Where does the spirit of man go when it goes upward?

Is the spirit sleeping?

of course the JW's and SDA make the spirit just to be a force not the person and in that sense it is but the soul is connected with the spirit.

Ro 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
Col 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

How can a spirit be just life force, energy or power if it can be circumcised? Man is called a soul and a spirit in this case spirit is not speaking of life force but the man himself

The body may lay in a grave but the spirit/soul is not there in the body. Life is more than the body. a soul dies only when it is cast with it's body and spirit into the lake of fire.
