Gods Necklace – Symbolism
Many passages In the Old Testament speak of the Messiah, his coming and the circumstances surrounding his coming. The messianic prophecy is one of the elements we should consider the most in all the Scriptures.
If we imagine a pearl necklace whose string breaks and the pearls fall and scatter In all directions, then we will have an idea of the Fall, because now we no longer have a necklace; we must now look for ‘the pearls.’
Most of the pearls will be lost in some dark place, under some furniture and it will take time before they’re recovered even if we look for them persistently. Others will be easily found because they would not have strayed far from the point of the fall or from the eyesight of the owner of the necklace. Each pearl carries within itself its own destiny. Just as preexisting souls carry theirs within themselves.
When the owner of the pearls gathers them, he will string them anew with a new string just as they were prior to the break. When this has been done he can once again speak of “the necklace” instead of “the pearls.”
If they are any pearls missing, it would be due to the imperfection of the means utilized for the search, or the negligence of the searcher* But if our owner is a perfect being, if he has all the necessary means to search for his pearls, and if he has the time required and is without Impatience, he would gather all of them.
Let us replace “pearls” by “souls”, “necklace” by “Total Man” and the “owner” by “God”, then the problem of final restitution are resolved, and the Apo catastasis is justified.
