(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 19:24
(28) And again I say unto you, It is easier for a carmel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
Grace be unto you!
Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. St. Matthew 6:33; ponder over this segment, "and all these things shall be added unto you."; pause for a minute, ask the Holy Spirit, what are those things that Jesus will add unto those who seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness?
The basic answer to the whole issue is peace! For example, one can have it all in this world, but without good health, there is no innermost peace; on the contrarily, you can have peace, freedom from worries, anxieties, strives, the moment you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, trust in him; therefore, today, if you have not yet surrendered your life to him, endeavor to do so as soon as possible, for your tranquility is in him.
Fruit thoughts; God created man, gave him dominion over things of the earth, cf. Genesis 1:26-28, he asked Adam to name every living creature and whatever name he called them, it is so; cf. Genesis 2:19-20; note this, though God is the creator of the universe, he put a man in charge of the earth, and gave him the power to rule over his creation, he interferes with the affairs of a man, only when called upon to do so; that is why we pray for his help through Jesus Christ; do not get me wrong, God is in perfect control of his creation, working tirelessly for man behind the scenes.
Regardless, he delegates responsibilities to his children, giving them gifts to serve one another; another attribute of God is, he does not interfere with the choices that a man makes for himself. However, he provides us with the opportunity to make our own decisions on earth, but he shines his wisdom as the light of the planet to guide our paths, if we care to pay attention to him; also, the things of the earth are already ours to keep from the foundation of the world, but, why are we struggling to attain what is already ours?
Here is what is on my mind, initially, it was because of the repercussion of the iniquity of Eve and Adam's disobedience to the word of God, cf. Genesis 3:3; secondly, lustfulness and greediness have taken control of the hearts of souls to want more for themselves, but in pursuing the things of the world, they lose the peace of God, by thinking about what to do to have riches forever, how to keep what they already have from losing any of its proceeds; this type of concerns, becomes burdens upon their shoulders, which can hinder them from entering the rest of God; therefore, it is profitable at the end of their lives to share blessings with the poor and needy while on earth, for the ethical values of man, are taken into consideration at the throne of judgment, think about your works.
Therefore, pursuers years roll away without enjoying the peace of Jesus, cf. St. John 14:27, they sleep in death without experiencing the peace of God, cf. Philippians 4:7; beloved, is there peace in your life? If not, I encourage you, to seek the divine harmony of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, you will find out that the things of this world, the peace of mind that you need are already with you, and are yours forevermore. Amen and Amen!
He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Rev. 3:13. Peace and Love be unto you.
