Think on These Things by George Hawtin. Man is a triune being – spirit, soul and body. The spirit is the realm of God consciousness, the soul is the realm of self-consciousness, and the body is the realm of sense conscious-ness.
Man in his fallen state speaks of himself as body, soul, and spirit, but God always refers to him as spirit, soul and body. The reason for this reversal of terms becomes evident when we understand that man looks only at the visible and temporal, beyond which he cannot see, while God looks at the spiritual and eternal, which though invisible to man is radiantly clear and vastly more important to Him and to all who inhabit that blessed realm of life and reality. Man in his fallen state has never learned that the things he sees are unreal. They are un-real because they are passing away.
Visible things are always changing and never remain the same. How then can that which is always changing and which never remains the same be real? That which is young today is old tomorrow, and that which blooms today has faded tomor-row and gone to the dust the day following. “Man which is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. He cometh forth as a flower and is cut down. He fleeth also as a shadow and continueth not.” Job 14:1-2 “What is your life? It is even a va-por that appeareth for a little time and then vanisheth away.” Jas. 4:14. “For all flesh is as grass and the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth and the flower thereof falleth away.” 1 Pet. 1:24 “As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.” Psa. 103:15, 16 “For that which is seen is temporal, but that which is not seen is eternal.” When the Spirit of God opens the eyes of our understanding, clearly revealing the temporary na-ture of all visible things, at that same moment they lose their glamour and value. They become as the morning dew that passes away at noon, a fleeting shadow, or a fading leaf.
