I knew a man in Christ above (Ten and Four) years ago, (whether in the body I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell; God knoweth); such a one caught up to the THIRD HEAVEN

And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth);

How that he was caught up to PARADISE, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

Of such a one will I glory; yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities,

For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.

And lest I should be exalted without measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given unto me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted without measure... (2 Corinthians 12:1-7).


And in the midst of the trees THAT OF LIFE, in that place where the Lord rests when He goeth up into PARADISE; and this Tree is of ineffable goodness and fragrance, and adorned more than any existing thing; and on all sides it is in form gold-like and vermillion and fire-like, and covers all, and it has produce from fruits. (Galatians 5).

Its roots are in the Garden at the earth's end. And PARADISE is between corruptibility and incorruptibility. (see 1 Corinthians 15:54-58).

And Two springs come out which send forth honey and milk, and their two springs send forth oil and wine, and they separate into Four parts, and go round with quiet course, and go down into Paradise of Eden between corruptibility and incorruptibility... (Secrets of Enoch 8:3-6).

PARADISE…PARDS….P.R.D.S…..Psht, Rmz, Drsh, SuD.

Psht, is the plain or simple rendering of superficial knowledge which anyone may read. (1 Peter 2:2; Isaiah 28:9; 1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Hebrews 5:10-14).

Rmz, literally a "hint," and is intended for students who are developing their spiritual intellect, and do not wish to be taught by those who see only literal meanings.

Drsh, is the inferential method of reading in which the Eye of intuition is opened. (Matthew 6:22,23). Then the soul transcends far above the lower mind, and far above the (mere) intellectual reasonings of others. Finally there is a Fourth…

Sud, or Sod, literally, "secret." This method is taught by initiates to their own beloved disciples only. They are careful to whom they divulge these things, knowing that those who hunt for what God has hidden have "trouble for their pay." From the Traditions of the Kabbalah.

The Mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the Rising of the Sun unto the going down thereof. Out of Zion, the perfection of Beauty, God hath shined...(Psalm 50:1,2).

As the Sun rises up every morning in the East and sets every evening in the West, so it is written:

Verily I say unto you TO DAY shalt thou be with me in Paradise...(Luke 23:43).


Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God.

But exhort one another daily WHILE IT IS CALLED TO DAY; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

For we are made partakers of Christ, IF WE HOLD THE BEGINNING OF OUR CONFIDENCE STEADFAST UNTO THE END...(Hebrews 3:12-14).
