2 Cor. 6 (continued from 5)
the 144,000 witness to
the tired souls as Jacob
(sad start – but good end)
[add.: the three covenants]

 

 
the three covenants (and now has started the third)

… if  one may wonder why would Paul wrote about this main theme , so far ,
thinking “but since Christ’s work , all will be okay for us” :

the Sinai covenant
– the goal until then had been “un-doing the grave consequence of Eden’s fall”,
through people and situations now upon this earth :
but after having entered the promised land (as foreshadowing of Eden) ,
the people failed – and God stopped speaking ;

the covenant of Christ
– He restored the Legal relation between souls and God , in past and future ,
and that restoration is valid for every soul who believes
(and for every other soul Hé judges as righteous !!) ;
yet the same time , this covenant contains a type … ‘intermediary aspect’ ,
because it wants to restore the first covenant to the third one : which is

the eden covenant
– this one started since God started to speak again (read : by restored prophets) ,
therefore
A NEW SITUATION has started – different as the one of the past 2000 years ! ,
as a situation working to realize Eden paradise again ,
wherewith Chaos will become inevitable , in order to reach that main goal :
please keep that in mind while reading this chapter

 
this chapter : can be cross-read in , for example ,
Is (27+) 25+26 [very mutilated] but lines 3,4,8,10  :
the people (=souls) will recognize the form of the witnesses [see prev. ch. 5]
and the 144 will be among them as the beautified ones by IEUE ,
then the souls of the people will desire also to be like that [=them] ;
same in Is. 49 (less corrupted) ;
same in Is. 43 , lines 8-9-10 + 12 [=’you will tell them how yóu were saved’] ;
etcetera ;

above : we saw the “payment” theme in a previous chapter ;
2.
the difference concerning the “dying to” was also in a previous chapter ;
below 14 c :
… Haggai literally writes “the soul becomes unclean by touching this flesh” ;

above 6 d-e :
… the real closing is only in line 18 ;
we opted that a proper closingline must end the entire previous theme
(presumably Esau feared that it would link back to the start – which it dóes , now) ;
below 17 :
because (of what-) God speaks here , it makes sense that ‘a location’ is included :

part I d         closing                                                                                                       (God speaks)

 

17
[=and] – you (will) (..dwell)        +

[unsure :]
and=as – (..rejoicing..) – no=in – [+her] (..fullness..) (?) ;

c
[=then] – I (..(will be) walking..) (eisdechomai=emperipateó) [=’fr.16’] – [=among] – [=you] ;
18
and – I (will) be – (a-) Father – (to-) you ,                                    [=’prophets : ‘I will be your deity’]
b
and – you – (will) be – my – [..2x..] – (..people..) ,                            
says – (..God..) – Almighty .                                                                                    [<< term as in Revelation]
