3 I'm talking about the mystery [YAH] showed me. I've already written a little about it to you, 😇.
4 So in reading this, 😇, you'll be able to perceive what I see about the mystery of the Messiah's [time-travel adventures].
5 To people of other ages, [YAH chose] not to reveal the mystery [of how his Word-Son travels through time, 😇]. But now [YAH's Holy] Spirit has made [Yahshua's supernatural identity] known to YAH's holy apostles and prophets.
6[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 ‘Awesome News,’ ex-beast-nationals and Jews can become [the Creator's] fellow-heirs, 😇, members of One [supernatural] Body.
YAH Chooses Anti-Christian Paul To Serve Him
7[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, 😇.
8 I, [a murderer of Christians,] am lower than the least of all holy [people, 😇]. 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[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 ‘dia’ can mean ‘by’, ‘for’, ‘through’, etc.
The KJV translates “dia’ as: ‘By’ 243 times; ‘through’ 100 times; ‘for’ 106 times; ‘because’ 24 times; ‘because of’ 29 times; ‘for the sake of’ 32 times; etc.
Some propose that ‘dia’ here means literally ‘BY,’ 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 ‘dia’ merely signifies that THROUGH Yah's Word, (which later becomes Yahshua,) YAH creates the universe.
The most easily comprehensible translation of ‘dia’ here is: ‘FOR Yahshua, YAH created the universe.’
We Lowly People Teach The Universes' Leaders
10[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, 😇. 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[Having us worm-people teach lessons to the highest powers, including angels,] is consonant with YAH’s age-old plan, 😇: [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 In union with Yahshua, through faith in him, [YAH] gives us [believers] boldness. So we access [all thrones of power] with confidence, 😇. See song: We Go Boldly.
Pain Makes us Humble So We Can Hold Authority
13 So please don't lose hope because I suffer for you, 😇. My pain [leads to the time when YAH gives you his] glory.
14 So, 😇, I bow my knees to [YAH,] the Father [of our Master Yahshua the Messiah].
15 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 I pray that from [YHVH the Father's] glorious, unlimited resources, he [forever] gives you, 😇, mighty inner strength, through His Spirit.
17 I pray that, through [your] faith, [the] Messiah stays dwelling in your hearts, and that you, 😇, stay rooted and grounded in love.
18*And I pray that you, 😇, along with all [YAH's] separatist-saints, grow able to comprehend the breadth, length, depth, and height [of the Messiah’s love]. Listen to Higher Than The Heavens, a song based on Eph. 3:18. It will change your life.
19[I pray that you, 😇,] 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*[YHVH] is able, through His power working in us [believers,] to do far more than we could ever ask or imagine, 😇.
21[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, 😇. Amén.
