Larry, Moe and Curly Joe- comedians I remember from the late 50's and early 60's. The link that I entitled "More than just words" shows a variety of clips, but no dialogue- just slapstick!!! And sometimes you really don't need words to convey messages. Take for example the visions found in the books of Daniel and Ezekiel. How do you explain the unexplainable? And what if you could not use words to explain something you had seen? Such was the problem of Paul...
2 Corinthians, Chapter 12
1 It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. For I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. 2 I know a man in Christ, fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I don’t know, or whether out of the body, I don’t know; God knows), such a one caught up into the third heaven. 3 I know such a man (whether in the body, or outside of the body, I don’t know; God knows), 4 how he was caught up into Paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. 5 On behalf of such a one I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except in my weaknesses. 6 For if I would desire to boast, I will not be foolish; for I will speak the truth. But I refrain, so that no man may think more of me than that which he sees in me, or hears from me. 7 By reason of the exceeding greatness of the revelations, that I should not be exalted excessively, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me, that I should not be exalted excessively. 8 Concerning this thing, I begged the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me.
I can only wonder what Paul saw and heard, but it must have been something very, very special. So marvelous that its greatness that Paul was given his famous "thorn in the flesh" to prevent him from being excessively exalted. The three stooges were the masters of slapstick and whatever language you view the video in makes no difference at all- you will will still get the message; comedy at its finest. Likewise, we understand the wonders of heaven (s) by Paul's description (even though Paul didn't actually describe it). Today, take a moment to think of what Heaven might actually be like; its wonder, glory and the supreme God of all creation who dwells there. And if you think about it long enough, I guarantee you will not be able to describe it in words. Humm, I wonder if our experience in heaven will be accompanies by music?? And will the three stooges be there? Whatever awaits, I know I will be happy-- who needs words!!!
