Perplexity-Many Are In The Trial Of Their Life

.

Luk 21:25  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

G640

ap-or-ee'-a
From the same as G639; a (state of) quandary: - perplexity.

G639
ἀπορέω
aporeō
ap-or-eh'-o
From a compound of G1 (as a negative particle) and the base of G4198; to have no way out, that is, be at a loss (mentally): - (stand in) doubt, be perplexed.

Hope; in perplexity and times of it before the great tribulation'

Luk 21:35  For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Luk 21:36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Paul spoke of being perplexed;

2Co 4:8  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;


2Co 4:8  We are troubledG2346 onG1722 every side,G3956 yetG235 notG3756 distressed;G4729 we are perplexed,G639 butG235 notG3756 in despair;G1820

1. We are troubled Greek:

G2346
θλίβω
thlibō
thlee'-bo
Akin to the base of G5147; to crowd (literally or figuratively): - afflict, narrow, throng, suffer tribulation, trouble.

Perplexed:

G639

Same as Lk 21

G4198
πορεύομαι
poreuomai
por-yoo'-om-ahee
Middle voice from a derivative of the same as G3984; to traverse, that is, travel (literally or figuratively; especially to remove [figuratively die], live, etc.): - depart, go (away, forth, one’s way, up), (make a, take a) journey, walk.

I know we will be where we are, note in Greek it can be Figuratively, thus, a new move, a traveling into the unknown, and not a lit. Homelessness, or to some it can be thus.


Dispare Greek:

G1820
ἐξαπορέομαι
exaporeomai
ex-ap-or-eh'-om-ahee

Note same word as what we are not , is the smae from what we are # 639

2Co 4:8  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

< Commentaries>

Gill:

2 Corinthians 4:8
We are troubled on every side,.... Or afflicted; εν παντι, either "in every place", wherever we are, into whatsoever country, city, or town we enter, we are sure to meet with trouble, of one sort or another; for wherever we be, we are in the world, in which we must expect tribulation: or "always", every day and hour we live, as in 2Co_4:10 we are never free from one trial or another: or "by everyone"; by all sorts of persons, good and bad, professors and profane, open persecutors and false brethren; yea, some of the dear children of God, weak believers, give us trouble: or "with every sort" of trouble, inward and outward; trouble from the world, the flesh and the devil:

yet not distressed; so as to have no hope, or see no way of escape; so as to have no manner of comfort, or manifestations of the love of God; or so as to be straitened in our own souls; for notwithstanding all our troubles, we have freedom at the throne of grace, and in our ministry; we can go with liberty to God, and preach the Gospel boldly to you:

we are perplexed; and sometimes know not what to do, which way to take, what course to steer, or how we shall be relieved and supplied; we are sometimes at the utmost loss about things temporal, how we shall be provided for with food and raiment; nor are we without our perplexing thoughts, doubts, and fears, about spiritual affairs:

But not in despair; of the Lord's appearing and working salvation, both in a temporal and spiritual sense.


- Doddridge;

The whole passage is one of the most pathetic and beautiful to be found in the New Testament. The word rendered “troubled” (θλιβόμενοι  thlibomenoi, from θλίβω  thlibō) may have reference to wrestling, or to the contests in the Grecian games. It properly means, to press, to press together; then to press as in a crowd where there is a throng Mar_3:9; then to compress together Mat_7:14; and then to oppress, or compress with evils, to distress, to afflict, 2Th_1:6; 2Co_1:6. Here it may mean that he was encompassed with trials, or placed in the midst of them so that they pressed upon him as persons do in a crowd, or, possibly, as a man was close pressed by an adversary in the games. He refers to the fact that he was called to endure a great number of trials and afflictions. Some of those trials he refers to in 2Co_7:5. “When we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.”

Barnes:

Yet not distressed - This by no means expresses the force of the original; nor is it possible perhaps to express it in a translation. Tyndale renders it, “yet we are not without our shift.” The Greek word used here (στενοχωρούμενοι  stenochōroumenoi) has a relation to the word which is rendered “troubled.” It properly means “to crowd into a narrow place; to straiten as to room; to be so straitened as not to be able to turn oneself.” And the idea is, that though he was close pressed by persecutions and trials, yet he was not so hemmed in that he had no way to turn himself; his trials did not wholly prevent motion and action. He was not so closely pressed as a man would be who was so straitened that he could not move his body, or stir hand or foot. He had still resources; he was permitted to move; the energy of his piety, and the vigor of his soul could not be entirely cramped and impeded by the trials which encompassed him. The Syriac renders it: “In all things we are pressed, but are not suffocated.” The idea is, he was not wholly discouraged, and disheartened, and overcome. He had resources in his piety which enabled him to bear up under these trials, and still to engage in the work of preaching the gospel.


We are perplexed - (ἀπορούμενοι  aporoumenoi). This word (from ἄπορος  aporos, “without resource,” which is derived from α  a, the alpha privative (“not”), and πόρος  poros, way, or exit) means to be without resource; to know not what to do; to hesitate; to be in doubt and anxiety, as a traveler is, who is ignorant of the way, or who has not the means of prosecuting his journey. It means here, that they were often brought into circumstances of great embarrassment, where they hardly knew what to do, or what course to take. They were surrounded by foes; they were in want; they were in circumstances which they had not anticipated, and which greatly perplexed them.

(Our Hope In Such A Time )

But not in despair - In the margin, not altogether without help or means.Tyndale renders this: “We are in poverty, but not utterly without somewhat.” In the word used here, (ἐξαπορούμενοι  exaporoumenoi) the preposition is intensive or emphatic, and means “utterly, quite.” The word means to be utterly without resource; to despair altogether; and the idea of Paul here is, that they were not left “entirely” without resource. Their needs were provided for; their embarrassments were removed; their grounds of perplexity were taken away; and unexpected strength and resources were imparted to them. When they did not know what to do; when all resources seemed to fail them, in some unexpected manner they would be relieved and saved from absolute despair. How often does this occur in the lives of all Christians! And how certain is it, that in all such cases God will interpose by his grace, and aid his people, and save them from absolute despair.

JFB:

perplexed, but not in despair — Greek, “not utterly perplexed.” As perplexity refers to the future, so “troubled” or “hard pressed” refers to the present.

VWS-Vincents word study-Greek;

In despair (ἐξαπορούμενοι)
Rev., very neatly, rendered unto despair. The word expresses an advance of thought on perplexed, yet on the same line. We are perplexed, but not utterly perplexed. The play between the Greek words cannot be rendered.

As noted above in my Greek study, I was writing, ODD, we are not this, but we are.

Vincent brings out this odd thing-The play between the Greek words can not be rendered. Gee thanks a lot LOL.

Readers listen. I will speak to you that are in this place, not as one who does not understand, but as one that is going through this myself . I often say, the best sermons, teachings, books, are by those who have gone through what they are talking about, or are going through it at present.

I am reading these in emails, so many, right now, today, are going through the same thing, or things like it.



I want to encourage you, you may see no way out, but Jesus is the way, thus we have a way out. This does not mean we will not have harder and harder, trials, tribulations, perplexing thoughts, cares within and without. They will increase, and soon ALL will be where we are, and some reading this are.

The lord said long ago, " I am allowing all this, so you will be strong, learn manna faith, daily faith, no worry, and know what it is to live in a financial collapse, before it comes, it will make you prepared to serve, you words will have weight as one who has been in it many years, non stop, I will not, in love take it away, trust me, I know what I am doing, I have you covered".

This same word is to some reading this. Many in Churchanity, head in sand Christians, will soon lose all, the house of cards will fall. The lord is allowing this on many to prepare them to serve and move in faith.

It is hard, scary, upsetting, perplexing at times, I have learned, over and over, at the last second the lord took care, he always will. Soon it will be in a different way than any of us have every seen, or experienced. We must suffer, some, not all, and it is for a reason, building Faith, love, compassion, a spirit that will not cave in, give up, those who have been, and are being tested to the max, it is a good thing, we are to embrace it, JOY in it and look to our lord.

I know this is for some, I know it is for me.          

I will end using Austin T. Sparks devotional, it is fitting.

/In Him we live and move and have our being. (Acts 17:28)/

This whole Bible is about bringing man back to God, bringing him into
God, and restoring him to his environment. "In Him we live and move
and have our being" is the fundamental truth of the spiritual life.
There is one thing I suggest to you,* *or hint at, which, if you grasp
it, would be such a tremendous help to you. When the Lord says
anything, it may look on the face of it something very simple and not
at all profound and wonderful; but anything that comes from the Lord,
though it be apparently very simple, contains all the vast knowledge
and understanding that the Lord has, and not to take account of that
'simple' thing may bring you into a vast amount of trouble.

When the Lord Jesus says: "Abide in Me" it sounds so simple and so
ordinary, but it contains all this history, and this great principle
and truth: "If you get out of your environment you are exposed to all
the poisons and all that creates spiritual disease. Abide in Me for
your health's sake! For your life's sake! For the sake of everything!
Abide in Me, and I in* *you!" Have you got that? You look again at any
seemingly 'little' thing that the Lord says, and if you could see you
would find that you have a universe of meaning in it.
