Quoted from JW teaching Life After Death
Does something inside us, like a soul or a spirit, survive the death of the body? Consider how the first man, Adam, came to have life. The Bible states: "Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life." (Genesis 2:7) Though breathing sustained his life, putting "the breath of life" into his nostrils involved much more than simply blowing air into his lungs. It meant that God put into Adam's lifeless body the spark of life—"the force of life," which is active in all earthly creatures. (Genesis 6:17; 7:22) The Bible refers to this animating force as "spirit." (James 2:26) That spirit can be compared to the electric current that activates a machine or an appliance and enables it to perform its function. Just as the current never takes on the features of the equipment it activates, the life-force does not take on any of the characteristics of the creatures it animates. It has no personality and no thinking ability.

Psalms 104:4 (NWT)
Making his angels spirits,
His ministers a devouring fire.
Hebrews 1:14 (NWT)
Are they not all spirits for public service, sent forth to minister for those who are going to inherit salvation?
What does the Bible teach about the soul? Adam "came to be a living soul," says Genesis 2:7. He did not receive a soul; he was a soul—a whole
person. The Scriptures speak of a soul's doing work, craving food, being kidnapped, experiencing sleeplessness, and so forth. (Leviticus 23:30;
Deuteronomy 12:20; 24:7; Psalm 119:28) Yes, man himself is a soul. When a person dies, that soul dies.—Ezekiel 18:4.
1 Kings 17:18-23 (NWT)
18 At this she said to E·li´jah: “What do I have to do with you, O man of the [true] God? You have come to me to bring my error to mind and to put my son to death.” 19 But he said to her: “Give me your son.” Then he took him from her bosom and carried him up to the roof chamber, where he was dwelling, and laid him upon his own couch. 20 And he began calling to Jehovah and saying: “O Jehovah my God, is it also upon the widow with whom I am residing as an alien that you must bring injury by putting her son to death?” 21 And he proceeded to stretch himself upon the child three times and call to Jehovah and say: “O Jehovah my God, please, cause the soul of this child to come back within him.” 22 Finally Jehovah listened to E·li´jah’s voice, so that the soul of the child came back within him and he came to life. 23 E·li´jah now took the child and brought him down from the roof chamber into the house and gave him to his mother; and E·li´jah then said: “See, your son is alive.”
When a person dies, that soul dies.—Ezekiel 18:4.
Is the soul of a child died? If it were so, how come that a soul of a child which is dead and come again to child body which is dead also?
Let's take a look of the complete sentence of Ezekiel 18:4
Look! All the souls—to me they belong. As the soul of the father so likewise the soul of the son—to me they belong. The soul that is sinning—it itself will die.
The soul that is sinning
A soul that is sinning: means cut off from the presence of the Lord (because soul never die, only the flesh made from dust will be died or decayed but not the soul-1 Kings 17:17-22) and will be punished (the sinning soul) forever Revelation 20:10
And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulphur, where both the wild beast and the false prophet [already were]; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
