What happened to Jesus' spirit, breath, life force or animating power?

Again Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and yielded up [his] spirit.

(Matthew 27:50)  NWT

It became:

And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made*  <1519>  a quickening spirit. AV
* or became in many translations, while neither appear in the Greek manuscripts.

Here translators had a choice in keeping with their perceived doctrinal persuasion

1519 eiv eis ice

a primary preposition; TDNT-2:420,211; prep

AV-into 573, to 281, unto 207, for 140, in 138, on 58, toward 29, against 26, misc 322; 1774

1) into, unto, to, towards, for, among

into, for or became are all kosher if used in the OT context of a sheep dying in place of an only-begotten-son as the Abraham/Isaac/Sheep type prefigured the Jehovah/Michael/Sheep-Jesus antitype fulfilment.

It is the life force Jehovah breathed into Adam's beautiful inanimate clay/earth form to animate him that is yielded at death when: . . . the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.  Ecclesiastes 12:7, where spirit here is Strong's

That which animates a fleshly creature, not to be confused with soul, which is the creature itself, be that the human or animal:

which does not return to God, neither can it, because no earthly living creature has ever been with God in order to return to Him.

OK now what happened to Jesus' spirit, breath, life force or animating power?

Here straight from the Manual:

And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit Matthew 27:50 ASV NAS.

 1. Jesus yielded up his spirit, his human life to Jehovah's firstborn son Israel now born again.

 2. It allowed Jehovah's heavenly only begotten son to retain his life after Jehovah had
     accepted the gift of the lamb Jesus.
     Like the type where Isaac's life was spared after God accepted Abraham's gift of a
     sheep he sacrificed which could very well have been used by him to feed his family.

The following verse is NOT about Jesus, but about the heavenly only begotten first created only or solely-begotten creature, the Archangel (chief messenger) who was cooperatively offered to redeem Israel as per John 3:16.  

Having submitted himself to God's will to die as a sacrifice to save Jehovah's firstborn son Israel, he was rewarded with complete and full sonship as the very first member of the Jehovah's God family.

(John 5:26) 26 For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted also to the Son to have life in himself.. . .

(1 Corinthians 15:45) 45 It is even so written: “The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became* a life-giving spirit.. . .NWT

 * Jesus did not become any thing or body.  He is forever dead.   Click here for details.
