33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things will be added to you.3 [Notice! To pursue the righteousness of God and His Kingdom is supposed to be the highest priority of your life — more than your efforts to provide food and clothing. Seek first the kingdom, which is peace, righteousness, and joy in the Spirit. Rom 14:17. To do so, in many scriptures, he told us, "Come to me;" come — not to sect services that claim He is in their building, not to prayer meetings, not to altar calls, not to read the Bible; Jesus even said that studying the scriptures is not coming to Him. John 5:39-40. We must go directly to Him; he told us us how to seek Him, the one thing that is needed: to sit at His feet and listen to His words that he speaks to us, Luke 10:39-42. We sit by waiting in humble silence, listening, and watching while thinking of the name of Jesus; when we hear Him speak to us and then obey, we are following Jesus. From the Word of the Lord within: "You can live in heaven and still walk the earth. Seek first the kingdom, and all else will be provided — provided you stay on course. He told us it was not enough to seek God, we must seek with all our heart and soul. Come to me, and I will guide the meek and lowly. God is not found going to services or reading about him. There is only one thing needful. Hear me, my children. Come to me, and I will speak to your souls. O seek the Lord you mighty, while you still have strength."]
|1 Chronicles 16:11|
11 Seek the Lord and His strength; yearn for and seek His face, to be in His presence continually!1[Turn inward to seek God for what may be known of God is revealed in them, Rom 1:19; God and Christ are only known by revelation. Mat 11:27. The kingdom of God is within you and around you. Luke 17:21. Faith comes by hearing the word which is in your heart and mouth to obey, that is the word of faith we preach. Rom 10:8,17]
21 He who follows after righteousness and mercy finds life, righteousness, and honor.
|Matthew 7:7 |
7 Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you. [The Lord told us to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness as the highest priority of our life. Mat 6:33. Then he told us us how, the one thing that is needed; to sit at His feet and listen to His words that he speaks to us, Luke 10:39-42; we sit at his feet by waiting in humble silence, listening, and watching while thinking of the name of Jesus. When we obey what we hear Him tell us to do, we are following Jesus. From the Word of the Lord within: "In humble silence we sit and wait. Think on His name. Sit with me, and I will make you clean. Sit with me, and I will reveal all. Follow me as fast as you can; you start by sitting. If those who hear will obey, their progress will be swift."]
