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 money, food, clothing, etc. 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."]
29 But if from there you will seek the LORD your God, you will find him, if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul. [Where is God to be turned to with all our heart and soul and found? In Deu 30:14, God tells us: "the word," (who is God, John 1:1), "is very near to you, in your mouth and in your heart so that you may obey it." From the Word of the Lord within: "God is not found going to services or reading about him." God has given the light to every man who comes into the world so that each man might believe, John 1:7,9. Christ, the word and light, is within you, patiently waiting for you to seek Him in your heart so that he might teach you how to live godly and righteously in this present world. From the Word of the Lord within: "He told us it was not enough to seek God, we must seek with all our heart and soul. You will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart. It is not enough to believe in Jesus; we must believe what He says and then act on it."]
17 I love those who love me; and those who seek me early and diligently shall find me.1 ["The Father is in you all, Christ is in you, and the Kingdom of Heaven is in you; there, in your hearts, is where you will find them all. Know him there searching your hearts, and find him there trying your minds and hearts; incline your ears, and give ear to him there, who will render to everyone of you according to your words and works whether they are good or evil," (by George Fox).]
|Jeremiah 29:13-14 |
13 And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart.
14 And I will be found by you," says the Lord; "and I will turn away your captivity and gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you," says the Lord; "and I will bring you again into the place where I caused you to be carried away captive. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Just like Judaism was taken over by the enemy, so has Christianity, which is corrupt through and through. There is no church in the world that Christ set up specifically. Like Daniel, you are captive of the Chaldeans. Your place of worship is filled with unclean birds." Unclean birds are demons.]
