They have appeared to men in real bodies, and men could not tell them from other men, as seen before. Paul said, "be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares"(Heb. 13:2). This could not be true, neither could scores of facts in the above-mentioned Scriptures be true if all the above spirit beings were not real and if they did not have real bodies. The facts stated above also prove that they have souls and spirits, for they have feelings, passions, appetites, and desires which constitute soul: and they have wills, knowledge, intellect, consciousness, and other faculties which constitute spirit. Thus all seraphims, cherubims, living creatures, archangels, angels, and other spirit beings have bodies, aouls and spirits like men. If it can be conceived that all these spirit beings are real and have personal bodies, souls, and spirits, then it certainly is conceivable that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, as three spirit beings also have spirit bodies, souls, and spirits.
