Treasure Within

13 Apr

The Teacher has spoken and it’s for us to discern the intent of the message.

The overriding theme of Jesus’ teachings was our need for Salvation and entrance into His Kingdom.

The need for our transformation was described by various analogies yet without question the outcome of each displayed these two points and how by Faith they are accomplished.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”

The Treasure hidden in a field is describing an inward treasure that by our nature is hidden, we must forsake our nature to find exactly what is within each of us as Paul stated; “we have this Treasure in jars of clay”. It’s only by Faith that we can begin to see not only this Treasure but the means for it to become our reality.

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls,

and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought The Teacher has spoken and it’s for us to discern the intent of the message.

We must forsake all in order to find and become exactly what God has determined for us to find and become, a New Creation within His Kingdom.

We of our nature or reasoning are incapable of this, it’s only as God shakes us loose from our outward focus to draw our hearts to see by Faith and the workmanship of His hands the Kingdom is within us.

The refining process is one of dying daily to our reasoning in order to live and walk by Faith.

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea, and gathering fish of every kind; and when it was filled, they drew it up on the beach; and they sat down and gathered the good fish into containers, but the bad they threw away.

So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

This is the only Way for God to accomplish exactly what His desire is for each of us. The overcoming of our nature by His Nature, we must experience this in order for this to become our reality.

The good fish represents the Kingdom within and the bad fish represents our human nature and reasoning.

This refining process is our only Way into exactly what God has for us all, His righteousness and Kingdom.

Here we will find the Treasure hidden, the Pearl of Great Price, or the Good Fish spoken of in His teachings.
