The eyes of the flesh, soul and spirit

Seeing the existence of evil, some conclude there is no God. But this reasoning boils down to this: because one does not know God, God doesn’t exist.

This reasoning is a fallacy.

God’s way is higher than man’s way. God’s wisdom is deeper than man’s wisdom.

We were created to have three sets of eyes: eyes of the flesh to see the material world, eyes of the soul to see oneself and each other, and eyes of the spirit to see God, who is spirit.

But the natural man has lost the eyes of the spirit. And their eyes of the soul are also damaged (some even severely damaged). It is a humble condition that needs a solution, which only God can give.

When we don’t see some of these realms, we should humbly acknowledge this disability and seek for re-creation.

But we tend to reason upon the visible, not knowing that the visible universe is only a temporary representation of eternity, an experiential test of a final result, an allegorical layer of a higher reality, and a parable to a deeper story.

Just because God allows both good and evil to play their own roles and serve a unified purpose in a universal theater doesn’t mean God has no plan and does not know the ending.

God does, and God has been revealing Himself throughout the history of creation.

“For the invisible things of Him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even His everlasting power and divinity…” Romans 1:20.

“He has at the end of these days spoken unto us in His Son…” Hebrews 1: 2.

When the temporal veil is removed, and the final work is revealed, the creation either stands in awe or in shame, depending on how we have received, perceived, and participated in the divine plan.
