Parable of the Pearl
Corresponding to the previous Parable of The Treasure, the merchant, like the man, seek and find what they are looking for. It is of such great value, they don’t hesitate to go and sell all they have in order to posses it.
The Pearl Is A Metaphor For Wisdom
The Incomparable Value of Spiritual Wisdom.
“for Wisdom is more precious than, (Peninim #6443) rubies/pearls, and nothing you desire can compare with her.” Proverbs 8:11
“Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth.” Psalm 73:25
“More than that, I count all things as loss compared to the surpassing excellence of knowing Christ Jesus, (Y’shua Messiah) my Lord, (YHVH) for whom I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ/Messiah.” Philippians 3:8
Wisdom, From The Most Ancient Book of Job:
“But where can Wisdom be found? And where is the place of Understanding? Job 28:12
“…And the acquisition of Wisdom is above that of pearls, (Peninim #6443).” Job 28:18
“Where then does Wisdom come from? And where is the place of Understanding? Job 28:20
The Pearl is Wisdom, Wisdom is Eternal Life, Y’shua is Eternal Life.
All Things Were Created by Wisdom
“O YHVH, how many are Your works! In Wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions.” Psalm 104:24
All Things Created Through Y’shua (Jesus)
“Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made.” John 1:3
“For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16
“yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we exist. And there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, (Y’shua Messiah) through whom all things came and through whom we exist.” 1 Corinthians 8:6
And now take a deep breath, and read the next two verses very slowly. Proverbs 8 and John 1 are referring to both Wisdom and Y’shua in the same way.
“YHVH possessed Me, (Wisdom) at the beginning of His way, Before His works of old. “From everlasting I was established, From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth.” Proverbs 8:22; Proverbs 8:23
We Are Instructed to Diligently Seek and Ask For Wisdom
Reverential Fear of YHVH is The Beginning of Wisdom
“The fear of YHVH is the beginning of Wisdom, And Knowledge of the Holy One is Understanding.” Proverbs 9:10
The Holy Scriptures Are Able To Make Us Wise for Salvation
Parable of The Pearl Revealed
In this Parable The Merchant searches and finds the Pearl, representing the Kingdom of Heaven. We are the Merchant, and all those who seek His Kingdom are promised to find it;
Although the religious leaders of Y’shua’s time diligently searched the Scriptures because they knew the Creator’s Wisdom was the Way to eternal Life. They still couldn’t see or hear spiritually, in order to perceive the Scriptures were speaking about Y’shua as The Spirit of Wisdom/Life.
“You diligently search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about Me,” John 5:39
The Pearl like the Treasure, represents the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven, The Spirit of Wisdom, Y’shua our Creator, they are all One in the same, YHVH, (He Exists) is One.
Nothing in this temporary life compares to eternal Life in His Kingdom.
