I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it Stands, one Nation under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL
What happened if . . .
What if we humans were actually fundamentally good?
Wouldn't it then be the case that we could always meet our fellow human beings without violence, distrust, prejudice or envy?
Wouldn't it be the case then that hunger in the world would long ago have been successfully combated?
If we could go in the right direction together, shouldn't wars with their terrible consequences be prevented?
That these are pressing problems that should concern everyone,
is probably out of the question!
We know z. For example, for decades, thousands of children have been starving to death every day.
We know that there is no just war, but that every conflict causes death, refugees and suffering.
Why don't we get these bad developments
The answer is obvious :
Humanity is not capable of thorough learning.
And even if she were, she is not thoroughly willing to learn.
She continually stumbles upon selfishness, shortsightedness, and slowness.
Every new argument, every new war, every starved child proves anew every day that this problem is fundamental despite many good approaches.
All of this would be avoidable if we were really good.
We had more than enough opportunities to at least act well and do the right thing.
The communicative, scientific and economic opportunities are better than ever.
And yet mankind does not make anything of it.
There is no more excuse !!!
Man has to break away from the illusion that he would be able to save himself and the world on his own.
This requires someone who does not share our core human failure
but is really good and wise:
JEHOVAH GOD HIMSELF.
The greatest miracle of all is the all-transforming power of God, which works on the human heart and humiliates pride.
Worldly pleasures, power
and honor become worthless.
Selfless love takes the place, and meekness and humility, which die little in the world, brings peace to the soul.
"We overturn considerations and everything that goes against the knowledge of God, and we capture every thought in order to make it obedient to Christ".
2 Corinthians 10: 5
The pearl -
a piece of jewelry from nature.
It is also the knowledge of their miraculous creation that makes a natural pearl so special.
The epithelial cells of a mussel rarely produce such a mother-of-pearl.
Their specialty is their unity and uniqueness.
Their origin and the source material are everything else
A grain of sand or other foreign body that gets into a living pearl mussel on the sea floor forms the period of a long process in which the mussel puts one layer of mother-of-pearl around this foreign body one after the other, until the pearl is the same size
and shine has emerged.
Such a pearl in its shape is
a perfect beauty
and if they were to be divided, their value would be lost.
Jesus Christ compares the Kingdom of God to a pearl dealer looking for precious pearls.
Matthew 13:45, 46
The traveling merchant is a picture
of the Son of God.
He, who was set above everything by the Heavenly Father, also possesses wisdom, that is, knowledge and judgment about that,
what is really valuable.
Hebrews 1: 2-4
HE IS LOOKING FOR BEAUTIFUL PEARLS.
“BECAUSE THE SON OF MAN
HAS COME TO SEARCH
AND TO SAVE,
WHAT WAS LOST ", AND:
"THE FATHER …
LOOKING FOR ... REAL ADORERS ”.
When he finds a very valuable pearl, he sells what he has for the price (ransom) for the pearl
1 Peter 1: 18--19
Our beloved Lord gave everything
to own them.
It can hardly be easier
but also a more poignant picture of
OF UNITY, AMBIENCE AND HEAVENLY BEAUTY OF GATHERING IN THE
GIVE EYES OF JESUS.
It is not the individual persons - as valuable as they are to him and his father - that are in the foreground in this parable, but the perfect unity, the noble splendor, the flawless and spotless perfection of the congregation as the totality of all believers calculated according to Jehovah Advice
Once again, THE pearl IS depicted as a figurative symbol in the Christian Greek Scriptures.
It is in the description of the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21, the assembly in the Millennial Kingdom.
“The twelve gates
consisted of twelve pearls. "
Every goal exists
from a single pearl. "
DH, at every entry and exit there is their perfect unity and beauty
in front of everyone !!!
