THE RHEMA OF ELOHIM, APPREHENDING THE EONS, AND CREATION THROUGH SUCCESSIVE AGES

"In faith and by confident, loyal trust, with the mind we constantly perceive (or: with the intellect we now understand) the ages to have been completely equipped by (and, or: thoroughly adjusted to; knit together and put in order in) God's gush-effect (or: the result of that which flowed from God; or: a declaration or speech that had the source, character and qualities of God; or: a spoken word which was God), into the [resultant situation]: the thing continuously being seen (being looked at and observed) has not come into being from out of the midst of things which are normally appearing (or: continuously shining and exposing themselves to view; or: presently becoming visible or being given light and thus being made to appear)."
(Hebrews 11:3 - Jonathan Mitchell New Testament)

Take a look at these phrases from the above passage in the JMNT..."we constantly perceive"..."the result of that which flowed from God"..."a spoken word which WAS God"..."the thing continuously being seen"..."being looked at and OBSERVED"..."out of the midst of things which are normally appearing"..."continuously shining and exposing themselves to view"..."presently becoming visible or being given light and thus being made to appear" ...if I didn't know that this was a passage from the Scriptures, I would think that that it was something taken from a page of a textbook on Quantum Physics, discussing photons, wave particles, light energy, and the Observer Effect...

Here's the same passage from a less wordy, but equally impactful translation: "By faith we are apprehending the eons to adjust to a declaration of God, so that what is being observed has not come out of what is appearing."  (Hebrews 11:3 - Concordant Literal New testament) Wow! "By faith we are apprehending the eons to adjust to a declaration of God"...think about that..."apprehending the eons to adjust to a declaration"...that's a little bit bigger picture than just creating your day...every day of our lives we are apprehending the eons (seasons) of our lives to adjust to our declarations...again, if I didn't know that this was a verse of Scripture, I would think that it was something written by an expert in metaphysical studies, or in the Law(s) of Attraction...or maybe something that was said in a TED Talks...

Here's the same verse from a translation that I haven't used very much: "By trust we comprehend that the eons were prepared by the rhema of Elohim: in this: the seen became not from those manifested." (Hebrews 11:3 - exeGeses Companion Bible)...in this one I feel the strongest vibrational pull toward the phrase "the rhema of the Elohim"...meditate on that one for a moment...the rhema...the revealed, enlightened word...of the Elohim or the "gods" (plural)...once again, if I didn't know for sure that this was Hebrews 11:3, I could easily think that some New Age writer who believed in "visualizing world peace" was talking about common vision and agreement of intention among people...

And finally, here's the same verse from one of my old standby favorites, the Amplified Bible:
"By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible."...hmmm...that's interesting...this translation says that the worlds were created "during the successive ages"...sounds like something that you would hear on Cosmos...Charles Darwin would probably even be OK with that one...
 
My point in all this is multi-dimensional...it shows how interesting language is, with all of it's nuanced and variable shades of meaning...the more you understand the dynamic potential of language, the stronger vibrational energy of words you can tap into...it shows that the Scriptures are inspired, because even though the writers of the Bible had certain limitations (which is why the Scriptures MUST be rightly divided), they did have access through the Holy Spirit to information about the workings of the universe and biology and Quantum Physics and time and space that they couldn't have possibly grasped intellectually thousands of years ago...these things were said before the invention of microscopes or telescopes or computers or space travel or even the birth of Albert Einstein...it shows that "the Knowledge of the Lord fills all the earth, as the waters cover the sea", and that the Ministry of Reconciliation is bringing all of these schools of thought together in unity...it shows all of that and a whole lot more...this is the greatest time in history to be alive, and we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg!

Man, I love this stuff!

"For the Word of God (or: God's thought, idea and message; or: the expressed Logos from God; or: the Word which is God) [is] living (or: alive), and active (working; operative; energetic; at work; productive) and more cutting above every two-mouthed sword, even passing through (penetrating) as far as a dividing (or: parting; partitioning) of soul and spirit (or: of inner self-life and breath-effect), both of joints and marrows, even able to discern (separate; judge; decide) concerning thoughts (ponderings; reflections; in-rushings; passions) and intentions (notions; purposes) of a heart (= core of the being)."
(Hebrews 11:12 - JMNT)

    Found a description for how I feel in Japanese: Yugen - an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words....
