Paul Did Jail Time To Give You The Good News
1 Loving People of All Colors & Nations Yahshua the Messiah told me to take up the cause of you non-Jewish โ€œoutsiders.โ€ So, ๐Ÿ˜‡, [the religionists paid their soldiers] to lock me up in jail!
2 Loving People of All Colors & Nations As you already know, ๐Ÿ˜‡, [YHVH] the Eloah has given me this special job of announcing His favor to you people [of all nations, not just to the Jews].
Yahshua Is The Time-Traveling Messiah
3 Spiritual Vision I'm talking about the mystery [YAH] showed me. I've already written a little about it to you, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
4 Education So in reading this, ๐Ÿ˜‡, you'll be able to perceive what I see about the mystery of the Messiah's [time-travel adventures].
5 Spiritual Vision To people of other ages, [YAH chose] not to reveal the mystery [of how his Word-Son travels through time, ๐Ÿ˜‡]. But now [YAH's Holy] Spirit has made [Yahshua's supernatural identity] known to YAH's holy apostles and prophets.
6 Loving People of All Colors & Nations [The key is that people of faith who secede from their worldly] Nation can share in YAH's promise [to proto-Hebrew Abraham]. In [union with] the Hebrew Messiah, through [acting on] his โ€˜Awesome News,โ€™ ex-beast-nationals and Jews can become [the Creator's] fellow-heirs, ๐Ÿ˜‡, members of One [supernatural] Body.
YAH Chooses Anti-Christian Paul To Serve Him
7 Missions/Outreach [YHVH] the Eloah gives me [Paul] a gift of special favor and mighty power [to live out] the wonderful privilege of serving Him by spreading this awesome revelation, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
8 Missions/Outreach I, [a murderer of Christians,] am lower than the least of all holy [people, ๐Ÿ˜‡]. Yet [YAH] gives me the unmerited favor and privilege to herald the unsearchable riches of the Messiah among the Beast-Nations!
Paul was the last guy who could have possibly merited the position of Christian evangelist, because Paul had participated in the killing of Christians.
9 Origins [YAH] chose me to shine all-encompassing illumination on this mysterious partnership [between YAH and Yahshua,] which from the beginning of the kosmos has been hidden in [the mind of YHVH] the Eloah, who created all things for [and with] Yahshua [the] Messiah.
The word โ€˜diaโ€™ can mean โ€˜byโ€™, โ€˜forโ€™, โ€˜throughโ€™, etc. The KJV translates โ€œdiaโ€™ as: โ€˜Byโ€™ 243 times; โ€˜throughโ€™ 100 times; โ€˜forโ€™ 106 times; โ€˜becauseโ€™ 24 times; โ€˜because ofโ€™ 29 times; โ€˜for the sake ofโ€™ 32 times; etc. Some propose that โ€˜diaโ€™ here means literally โ€˜BY,โ€™ meaning that YHVH delegated creation of the universe to Yahshua, leaving YHVH free to sit in the shade, delighted to watch his trained son hammer out the cosmos. Such a view proposes a complex existential paradox: Yahshua was born into the universe as a baby, then graduated into eternity, then went back and created the universe into which he was later born. Others say โ€˜diaโ€™ merely signifies that THROUGH Yah's Word, (which later becomes Yahshua,) YAH creates the universe. The most easily comprehensible translation of โ€˜diaโ€™ here is: โ€˜FOR Yahshua, YAH created the universe.โ€™
We Lowly People Teach The Universes' Leaders
10 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven [YHVH] the Eloah is using us, the Ekklesia, to show His many-sided wisdom to all rulers, up to even the authorities in heavenly realms, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
The called-out, separated people of YAH show the establishment how a society is really supposed to be run. While the world drowns in debt-funded wars, we few believers live in love.
11 The Messiah [Having us worm-people teach lessons to the highest powers, including angels,] is consonant with YAHโ€™s age-old plan, ๐Ÿ˜‡: [YAH always abases prideful beings while he promotes humble beings]. [YAH fully] accomplished [this role-reversal] through [His] Messiah: Yahshua, our Master.
Yahshua laid down his near-infinite powers to let brutal Romans torture him to death. You try it if you think it's so easy.
12 Faith In union with Yahshua, through faith in him, [YAH] gives us [believers] boldness. So we access [all thrones of power] with confidence, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
See song: We Go Boldly.
Pain Makes us Humble So We Can Hold Authority
13 Tribulation/Purification/testing So please don't lose hope because I suffer for you, ๐Ÿ˜‡. My pain [leads to the time when YAH gives you his] glory.
14 Prayer So, ๐Ÿ˜‡, I bow my knees to [YAH,] the Father [of our Master Yahshua the Messiah].
15 Loving People of All Colors & Nations The whole family [of beings] in heaven and on earth derive [their] name-authority from [YHVH the Father].
The Bible brims full of names and places based on the name, 'YAH.'
Paul Prays For You To Be Strong & Loving
16 YAH's Spirit (Holy Spirit) I pray that from [YHVH the Father's] glorious, unlimited resources, he [forever] gives you, ๐Ÿ˜‡, mighty inner strength, through His Spirit.
17 Love I pray that, through [your] faith, [the] Messiah stays dwelling in your hearts, and that you, ๐Ÿ˜‡, stay rooted and grounded in love.
18 Our Creator's Love *And I pray that you, ๐Ÿ˜‡, along with all [YAH's] separatist-saints, grow able to comprehend the breadth, length, depth, and height [of the Messiahโ€™s love].
Listen to Higher Than The Heavens, a song based on Eph. 3:18. It will change your life.
19 Our Creator's Love [I pray that you, ๐Ÿ˜‡,] know this love of the Messiah, a love beyond all science, so you'll stay filled, overflowing with [the Spirit of YHVH] the Eloah.
YAH Gives You Power To Do The Impossible
20 Supernatural Miracles *[YHVH] is able, through His power working in us [believers,] to do far more than we could ever ask or imagine, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
21 Praise [I pray that] throughout all ages, for ever and ever, the Ekklesia gives YAH glory for [giving us] Yahshua the Messiah. [That's the way] it [must] be, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
Amรฉn.
