A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Everyone falls…it’s getting up afterwards that matters.
UNSPEAKABLE — INEXPRESSIBLE — INDESCRIBABLE
"And I know such a man — whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows — how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter." [2 Corinthians 12. 3 - 4]
The NEW COVENANT calls three things unspeakable, inexpressible or indescribable; all conveying the idea of a thing which is so marvelous it cannot be articulated (expressed, put into words). Unspeakable words is mentioned above in 2 Corinthians; inexpressible joy is emphasized in 1 Peter 1:8; and an indescribable gift is the topic of 2 Corinthians 9:15
The indescribable gift which Paul is referring to is obviously the LORD YESHUA ha’MASHIACH. This MATCHLESS GIFT is what each of us are inadequate at being most thankful for every day of our lives when we come to know our LOVING SAVIOR. "The GIFT of GOD is eternal life in CHRIST JESUS our LORD." [Romans 6. 23] "GOD demonstrates HIS OWN love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, CHRIST died for us." [Romans 5. 8] "For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life." [John 3. 16]
When the Apostle Paul received MESSIAH YESHUA as his SAVIOR & LORD, he considered himself as "crucified with CHRIST" — yet he could also say that "the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the SON OF GOD WHO loved me and gave HIMSELF for me." [Galatians 2. 20]
It was Paul who had been chosen on a unique occasion to be "caught up into Paradise" where he "heard the inexpressible words." Whatever he was privileged to see and hear convinced him irreversibly— for all time —that once a person decides that "to live is CHRIST" — then "to die is gain (favorably promoted)." [Philippians 1. 21]
Thus it will be for all who received by faith the ULTIMATE, INDESCRIBABLE GIFT...the RISEN LORD, the ROCK of our salvation. Now we can join with another great apostle, Simon Peter, and say that we too "rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory" and await "the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls." [1 Peter 1. 8 - 9] That is an unspeakable, inexpressible, indescribable gift of great joy that awaits all true believers!
Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!!
As we bid farewell to Sabbath, we share the blessed hope that, in YESHUA, every day will be as sweet as Shabbat — a rest of love freely given in truth and sincerity — a rest in peace and tranquility, quiet and safety — a perfect rest in which you find favor of the LORD JESUS! Have a good week, may gladness reign and joy increase.
May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and to all Israel, Amen.
The LORD reigns; HE is the KING robed in grandeur; the LORD has girded HIMSELF with strength. The world also is set firm, that it cannot be moved. YOUR Throne is set firm from of old; from eternity YOU have existed. The streams sound, O LORD, the ocean sounds its thunder, the ocean sounds it pounding. Above the thunder of the mighty waters, more majestic than the breakers of the sea is the LORD, majestic on high. YOUR decrees are indeed enduring; holiness befits YOUR House, O LORD, for evermore. [Psalm 93]
Shavua Tov — Good Week!
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace.
