What is Trichotomy? - Copies and Shadows / Part 3

The construction of the tabernacle was created to address men’s immorality by observing numerous ritualistic disciplines. It was an attempt to restore their relationship with God. But most people do not realize that the old were a copy and shadow of the things to come.

“What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you and which ye have from God, and that ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's...” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV)

Furthermore the 1Temple High Priest served the copy and shadow of the heavenly things (Spiritual). The structure that housed God, along with its rituals that were experienced inside and outside the temple, were a mere shadow of what was to come. It was a pattern to indicate to us how to experience a personal relationship with Divinity inside your being. If one takes a closer look at the scriptures, the truth will unfold itself before our eyes - trichotomy of men abounds. Take a walk with me into the physical and spiritual temple. The first sign of trichotomy can be found in Genesis 2:7;
“Yahweh God formed man from the dust of the ground (first component), and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life (second component); and man became a living soul (third component).”
Before the fall, men was functioning effectively as a trichotomic being. After their fall from grace, Adam and Eve fell into a dicotomic state.

Yahweh God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. Now, lest he put forth his hand, and also take of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever." Therefore Yahweh God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man (removed from Spiritual Life); and he placed Cherubs at the east of the garden of Eden, and the flame of a sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.” Genesis 3:22-24

They now clothed themselves in long-term fear. Remember that short-term fear is healthy but long term fear is irrational. Did Adam or Eve display this irrational behavior? Of course they did!

They heard the voice of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?" The man said, "I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself." Genesis 3:8-10

Adam and Eve hid themselves from their life source. They were afraid of God. What kind of relationship can one have if they abide in (long-term) fear?

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

I can’t begin to tell you how much ‘meat’ this verse contains. It is one reason that the old way had to give way to the new. I will leave you with this revelation: Adam and Eve resided in a shadow of a temple. It was the first metaphor suggesting human temple; The Garden (Most Holy), Eden (Holy Place), and Nod (Court). Adam and Eve were evicted from the garden which is a metaphor for the Spirit. They died on the day they ate from the tree of knowledge. Now we know that they didn’t physically died  so we must conclude that God was referring to a spiritual death. Men were no longer living in a trichotomic state.
