Metaphysical meaning of coats of skins (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of coats of skins (mbd)
coats of skins (Gen. 3:21)--the Hebrew word is chithanoth, which signifies not only coats, but bodylike; an embodiment; expression of bodily form; assimilation of corporeal body.

Meta. The body of flesh. Man was connected originally with the spiritual-body idea, but when he took on persona consciousness he was given "coats of skins," which, under divine law, corresponded with the quality of his thought world. When spiritual thought becomes supreme in consciousness, the coats of skins will give way to the manifestation of the spiritual body, which is the immortal body that was spoken of by Paul. Corruptible flesh is the manifestation of corrupt ideas in mind. "Be ye transformed [changed in form] by the renewing of your mind."
