Scripture Passages from Paul for Our Edification
Fellow Khristians, this 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 He-brew scholar (as well as one of many other languages), often alludes to or partially quotes from the He-brew Scriptures. He also combines parts of the two languages of the Old Contract and the New Contract to get his message across.
In the text below, Paul is writing to people living in what we today call Greece (Helada or Hellene in Paul’s time); they are multi-lingual (being from the Yasrealite line, many of them still knew some He-brew), but Paul tends to blend Greek sentence structure with the slightly more pictorial Hebrew.
This is one of the things that caused the great Courier Peter to say of Paul’s writings, “There are some things that are difficult to understand that the ignorant and mentally unsettled distort to their own destruction (II Peter 3.16).”
Ah yes, have they twisted so many vv. in the Scriptures they are impossible to count! Note that Peter used the word meaning, “mentally unsettled.” Khristians are mentally settled, because they are at peace with the Ever-Living through Khrist. So then, you know who could not understand Paul’s writings.
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. Either in Kultic Khristianity much less the secular world.
So, I have placed a few phrases in brackets to help clarify the text. I remind everyone that the reason the Couriers’ writings are important is because their duty was to teach to all Ada-mic 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. What that act means for those of us who trust that it occurred. And what are the promises and rewards we Believers have coming.
Being the last Courier called (the first shall be last; and the last first, Matthew 19.30), Paul’s message takes precedent over everything except Revelation; and certainly the Lord chose him to explain things to us that had previously been hidden. This that fine gentleman did with vim, vigor, talent, and divine inspiration.
This is a very edifying Passage. Enjoy!
The Khristian’s Body is Dying Everyday; the Spirit is Rejuvenated Everyday
The Divine Courier Paul to the Divine Assembly at Korinth, Hellene
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 Hellene]
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 soul/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 immortal body from the Upper-Levels]
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 kultic 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.
Or who get fed a lot of lies and cons about how, “If you’ll just send your seed-money to God, that is, ME, you’ll receive a 10-fold return for that seed-planting.” (read: Throwing Money at a Lying, Thieving Con-Artist Who Wouldn’t Know the Lord If He Tapped the Thug on the Shoulder and Recited the Entire Bi-ble.)
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 or die. 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 Hellene and He-brew.
We may rest assured that our late 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!
