Long ago I was laying upon my bed and thinking about some of the things I had learned. Being an artist, [I paint, write and garden] I looked out the window and for the first time I noticed 3 shades of green upon the leaves I was watching in the trees. I looked further and saw how each tree gave off 3 colors. Then, I started to really get into looking for the 3's.. Each tree or plant has 1 trunk, branches and the roots. Three again! I started to think about how Jesus said He was the Vine and we are the branches. Is the root our Father who is a Spirit~ who is Love? Everything has three's. Let's break it down, let's look at one single leaf. We can see the stem, the veins and then the face. Everyone knows about the egg. We have the shell, the white and the yolk. Let's get a little bit more personal, look down at your fingernails. We have the nail, the moon and the cuticle. Are you excited yet? I am a retired hairdresser. Take a look of your hair:The 3 inner layers become the hair, made up of the cuticle, the cortex and the medulla. Not intimate enough? Ok, go to our eyes. WOW! Such a Wow! We have the, Cornea: This is the front layer of your eyes, Pupil: The pupil is the black dot in the center of your eye that acts as a gateway for LIGHT. Iris: This part is typically referred to as your eye color. Not enough? What about the 3 main primary colors on the color wheel? The ones whom all colors come from? RED, BLUE and YELLOW!
Am I telling you that everything derives from threes? Yes. Ok, let's get a bit difficult. What about something like a jellyfish? After all a jelly fish is all mushy, like our homemade jelly and doesn't seem to have a whole lot inside of it, right? Wrong! The body of a jellyfish exhibits radial symmetry and is divided into three main parts: The umbrella, the oral arms [around the mouth] and the stinging tentacles.
Not enough? Ok, let's just zero into the heart!!
The heart is a muscle in the body that is about the size of a persons clenched fist. There are three types of muscle in the body: cardiac, smooth, and skeletal. Cardiac muscle cells are located in the walls of the heart, appear striated, and are under involuntary control. The heart has hree layers of tissue which form the heart wall. The outer layer of the heart wall is the epicardium, the middle layer is the myocardium, and the inner layer is the endocardium.
Have you noticed everything is in threes?
We were created in the image of God. Body, soul and Spirit. We can easily break down everything into more 3's too. He said, "Let us make man in our image." Do I understand it all? Nope.
But when I look at the triune colors of the gulf I can see God's hand! When I see the triune colors of the sand, I see Him again. Everything is reflected to give Him glory and be pleasing in His sight.
Even in our wording....
We cannot give God thanks from our heart, unless we are:
1. Born Again
3. Following His Covenant of love in our life.
Our soul can be broken down into 3 parts:
2. Will [decision center]
What about the Body you might say?
The human body consists of a bony skeleton and muscles. The 3 main parts of the body are: the head, the trunk and the limbs[extremities] The head is composed of the cranial and the facial parts.
Lastly, What about the Spirit? THE THREE PARTS OF THE SPIRIT—
CONSCIENCE, FELLOWSHIP, AND INTUITION
Just as our body has many parts, so does our spirit and our soul. Our spirit is composed of three: conscience, fellowship, and intuition. The conscience is for us to discern right from wrong, to justify or to condemn. Romans 9:1 compared with Romans 8:16 proves that the conscience is a part of our spirit. Fellowship is for us to contact God and to commune with God. This is shown in John 4:24 and Romans 1:9. Intuition means to have a direct sense or feeling in our spirit, regardless of reason or circumstance. First Corinthians 2:11 indicates that our spirit can know what our soul cannot. Our soul knows by reason or by circumstance, but our spirit can perceive without these. This is intuition, the direct sense in our spirit.
There you have something else to think about.
