What are their Spiritual/prophetic significance, seeing they 'come out' (hint?) of an unclean oyster?

Hm Interesting.

Lets say the oyster is the place (or lifestyle) that Revelation says to come out of and not be partakers of her sins.
Then the pearl is rare and symbolizes YHVH's people who do come out of her. Some pearls are more valuable than others. To YHVH and people spreading the gospel; so are some people.

That is all I can think of.

I have not put much thought into pearls and spirituality.

This will be a fun topic.

Off the top of my head...and a very tired one at that...

A grain of sand gets into the oyster, and irratates it which causes the critter to smooth it over and try to block it off with mother of pearl..the inside coating of the shell.

YHVH's people live in an unclean world, and we irritate that world, just by our very presence, and so the world tries to block us off.

The result, is a rare and precious gem. We are sealed off but not because the world likes us though they try to stiffel us, but YHVH's hand is in that sealing off and so we are protected until the time of the harvest. ??

Our bodies are also unclean by virtue of sin, yet we can be purified and made valuable, worth dying for, worth selling all that is owned to purchase it...our eternal bodies come from this corrupt one, and that eternal body is a gem...

Through adversity comes precious beauty??

Lots of thoughts come to mind

You guys are all over it. :friends:

Gen 32:12 “For You said, ‘I shall certainly do good to you, and shall make your seed as the SAND of the sea, which are too numerous to count.’ ”

Rom 9:27 And Yeshayahu cries out on behalf of Yisra’ĕl, “Though the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl be as the SAND of the sea, the remnant shall be saved.

We are in an unclean place, surrounded by filth, an irritant to the world, being shaped and formed into something beautiful and of good worth.

Ooops. I posted before I read what you wrote…. We thought alike.
