Pearl Of Great Price

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Abdicate, Jun 1, 2014.

  1. Matthew 13:45-46 (KJV)
    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

    To get a pearl the mollusk receives a foreign object within its tender flesh creating an irritant. As a reaction to the irritant, it secretes thousands of very thin concentric layers of nacre. The bigger the irritant the bigger the pearl. A pearl is created with a shimmering iridescence, luster and soft inner glow unlike any other gem on earth. Because the nacre is composed of microscopic crystals of calcium carbonate, aligned perfectly with one another, the light passing along the axis of one crystal is reflected and refracted by another to produce a rainbow of light and color. To extract that pearl the mollusk sometimes has to die.

    How does this apply to us? Well Jesus is the Mollusk and we are the pearl! We have a rainbow of promises that reflects the love of God. In Hebrew, the word for mollusk is רכיכה. The letter meanings are: Man, open hand, nail, open hand, grace! Jesus opened both His hands, nailed on the cross, for us to receive what was in those hands: Grace. Jesus gave His life to make us a pearl of great price with His tender flesh on the cross, Luke 22:19! His suffering made us, the irritating foreign object, into a shimmering pearl of His light.

    When the pearl comes into contact with sweat the luster is lost. To restore it, you need only to wash it with water. When we come into contact with the works of the flesh Galatians 2:16; 5:19-21, we lose our luster 2 Corinthians 4:6, but we need only wash ourselves with the word of God, John 15:3; Ephesians 5:26-27. One last amazing thing from the Hebrew for mollusk is this verse:

    Genesis 12:3 (KJV)
    And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

    The highlighted words above in Hebrew is מברכיך (literally meaning who bless you). Who is it that will bless Israel the most? Jesus. Now when you take away the suffixes of מ (meaning from) and ב (meaning in) you have the word mollusk! This is the hidden mystery of the Church: from and within the mollusk! What is in and from the mollusk? A pearl, and from Jesus, a pearl of great price, the Church! Glory to God! You and me! Praise Jesus for His words and His love towards us.

  2. Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
    Eph 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

    Interesting that there has been a mystery hidden from the beginning of the world but now is being revealed by the Spirit of God.
    God's purpose in this mystery was that now through his Church the "manifold" wisdom of God is being proclaimed by the Church unto principalities and powers in the Heavenly realm. The word, "manifold" means, "multicolored". God's Wisdom is so multifaceted it is like unlimted various colors of a rainbow to where he can give to his children a specific color without duplicating one to another. Even as every star differs in Glory one from another so are his saints Wisdom he has given to each of us. This is what makes us unique and what makes us different from each other, even though it is the same Spirit, same anointing, same God, yet the way it comes out of me is different in how it flows out of you.
  3. Yea! The Blood of Jesus, covers us like the nacre..and thus we become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. And by Romans 12:2 we become transformed by the renewing of our minds.

    Woo Hoo Glory to God! This is some good teaching!

  4. I have herd that some people believe that the angels (principalities) were the ones that brought the revelation knowledge to the people, that is why they know what the Bible says. But from what i understand and what it seems that you brought up, is that when the Holy Spirit gives someone in the church a Word of knowledge, and they speak it, then the angels are given that Word also. But we get it first. And when the Spirit speaks through someone, it is meant to encourage and edify and strengthen the body of Christ.
    Thanks for the good comment! Blessings brother!
  5. Greetings to you my sister. Yes Angels are created being made to serve God. Not only God but also us, as it is written....

    Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

    What we have as being the body of Christ, angels want to know, and look unto things we have.
    These verses describe that the Prophets in the old testament prophesied of things they did not understand, neither did the angels, and they to wanted to know know what they meant. God living inside us is the ultimate in knowing God and all his ways. There are no angels living in God, and they only know what the Lord tells them, but for us we are filled with his thoughts, and have the mind of Christ. This makes me very excited!!!

    1Pe 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
    1Pe 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
    1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
