"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old." Matthew 13: 44-52
How precious is the word of GOD to you? How important is your eternal future? These are a questions no one can answer but you alone. These are questions that cannot be answered with words until after they have been answered by the actions of your heart. The LORD, HIS word, and HIS kingdom must have been worth all that the folks had that are mentioned in the above parables. They were willing to sell all that they had to possess it. There comes a time when we must all make a decision, a life altering decision, on how valuable the LORD is to us, and yes our own eternal future will be determined by our answer. Again the LORD has brought it to our attention that there are only two choices and two rewards for those two choices. For those who choose without wisdom in the eyes of the LORD the result will be: "there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." This type of activity will be their eternal future. Several times in this chapter the LORD has said, "Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."
The LORD bless you and keep you my friend, The LORD has blessed you with the ability to choose HIM to be the LORD of every facet of your life. The LORD has blessed you with the capacity to make others aware of the importance of their choices for their eternal future. And the LORD has sent you forth to show JESUS, your pearl of great price, to all you meet. Hallelujah! "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it." In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. And HIS name shall be upon you and yours, and HE shall bless you all. Amen. (reference Matthew 13:45-46
