The Wisdom of King Solomon
1. A good name is far better than fine olive oil. And the day an Adamic dies is better than the day he is born.
2. It is better to go to a funeral for mourning than it is to go to a party to feast over a birth. For death is the destiny of every Adamic. The living should take this to heart.
A Psalm by David, Psalm 116.15:
15. Precious in the sight of the Ever-Living is the death of His Separated-Ones.
The following Passage comes from 2nd Korinthians and is written by the Lord’s Divine Courier, Paul. The reason most people don’t understand such Scriptures is that Paul, being in particular a Hebrew scholar (as well as one of other languages), often alludes to or partially quotes from the Hebrew Scriptures. He also combines parts of the two languages of the Old Contract and the New Contract to get his message across. In Paul’s writings it is clear to see that his goal is result—that is, getting his point across to those who are supposed to understand it.
In the text below, Paul is writing to people living in what we today call Greece; they are multi-lingual (being from the Isrealite line, many of them still knowing some Hebrew), but Paul tends to blend Greek sentence structure with the more pictorial Hebrew.
This is one of the things that caused the great Apostle Peter to say of Paul’s writings, “there are some things in his letters that are difficult to understand that the ignorant (ignorant regarding salvation, the Scriptures, and Khrist) and unsettled (not set in proper Khristian doctrine) distort to their own destruction” II Peter 3.16
Ah yes, have they twisted them!
Below, Paul blends the two languages in a few beautiful verses to get across a very edifying message that is hardly taught today in this materialistic world.
So I have placed a few phrases in parenthesis to help clarify the text. I remind everyone that the reason all the Couriers’ writings are important is because their duty was to teach to all Believers what the Lord’s Message truly meant: what it meant for Him to come from the Upper-Level and walk the earth and allow Himself to be murdered, for our sake.
Being the last Courier called (the first shall be last; and the last first, Matthew 19.30), Paul’s message takes precedent; and certainly the Lord chose him to explain things to us that had previously been hidden. This that fine gentleman did with plenty of vim, vigor, talent, and divine inspiration.
This is a very edifying Passage. Enjoy!
Scripture Passages for Your Edification
The Khristian’s Body is Dying Everyday, the Spirit is Rejuvenated Everyday
II Korinthians 4.16-18 & 5.1-2
16. Khristians ought never lose heart. Indeed, although our external person (the human body) is certainly degenerating daily, nevertheless, the internal person (the invisible spirit) is being renewed day by day. (the important thing to notice in this verse is that the Lord renews the spirit over and over day after day—but not the body) (notice the perfect parallelism, by the use of contrasting terms: the body is always being destroyed by the elements; the spirit is always being renewed by the Lord)
Our Current Affliction is But Temporal and Trivial
17. For the tiny burden of our temporary suffering produces for us an ever-existing mass of honor that is beyond all Adamic measure! (the term our temporary suffering indicates that until we die or until the Lord Returns we suffer; as is typical in Scripture, the Lord turns a negative into a positive: our suffering is minimal compared to the honor we shall receive, which is beyond anything an Adamic can calculate or imagine, which the word “measure” entails, that is, both sides of the brain: the logical and the dreaming)
The Khristian’s Focus on the Unseen
18. Khristians ought not fix their eyes (the eyes put for our mental outlook) upon the things they can see, but on the contrary, Khristians ought to fix their eyes upon the things they cannot see (the spiritual world where the Lord and our loved ones are who have gone on ahead of us). For these physical things we see are temporary, but certainly the spiritual things we cannot see are ever-existing! (note again the beautiful contrasting parallelism: the visible versus the invisible; the temporal versus the eternal; a favorite method of writing for Paul; a rhetorical form far more dispersed through the Hebrew than the Greek)
The Mortal Body from the Earth; the Immortal from the Upper-Levels
II Korinthians 5.1-2
1. For we understand that if our earthly house (the human body), which is like a tent (a mere covering for the spirit), is destroyed, we have from God a building, a house not made by hands (the new eternal body), ever-existing in the Upper-Levels (a body that never decays or dies). (more contrast: the earthly decaying body versus the heavenly immortal body)
Khristians Desire to Receive Their Immortal Body
2. For certainly we groan in this earthly house (the human body), sincerely desiring to put on our spiritual house (the new, eternal body) that comes from the Upper-Level. (more contrast: groan in one condition; look forward to the coming new condition; our temporary earthly house versus our permanent eternal one in the Upper-Level)
This is obviously a much greater event to look forward to at the Lord’s Return—rather than the hell fire and damnation that cultic preachers often teach. Or, the harsh judgmental fear that those preachers lay on poor folks who gather to hear the Lord’s Logos, but instead receive tons of guilt and a teaching that makes them fearful of going to the mad Bearded One who looks down from the sky with a whip in one hand and an iron rod in the other.
Note: In I Korinthians 15.51-53, Paul had already informed the Assembly at Korinth that at the Lord’s Return (Parousia), or when the last Trumpet (the Seventh) sounds as he explained it there, using one of the several common Hebrew figurative terms for the Lord’s Return, that they would receive new bodies that would no longer decay at that time. The current flesh body that you are in now goes to the red earth from which it came, and your spirit goes directly to the Lord Who placed it in your earthly flesh body. (Ecclesiastes 12.7)
At the final Judgement, at the end of the Khilism (which is when Khristians receive their final reward; and those who have rejected Khrist receive theirs), the Lord will make our souls immortal. We shall then live into the ageless ages without any memory of this age (at least of the negatives), never experiencing the slightest sorrow or burden again. (Revelation 21.4 & Revelation 22.3 & Isaiah 65.17)
In the above Passage, Paul simply elaborates on the fleshly part of those two subjects (the new body and the new soul)—without referring to the fleshly, earthly body specifically, by using figurative language and parallelism. This is common of both Greek and Hebrew.
We may rest assured that our believing friends, family, and fellow Believers are in that new body perfectly free of pain and worry and suffering; and we may rest assured that when our time comes, the same will be the case. The Lord has promised, and it is true!
