Coming World War 3
Parable of Hidden Treasures
Mat 13:44 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."
These Christians gave up all when they can get His hidden treasures.
What are these treasures?
1. Spirit of Truth teaches all truth, understanding of His words, end time signs, etc.
2. Free from worldliness, bondages, etc.
3. Fruit of the Holy Spirit
4. Empowering of the Holy Spirit to overcome temptation, persecution, etc.
5. Joy and Peace of His presence
6. Counted worthy to be His bride.
2 Cor 4:6-7 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
Parable of the Pricey Pearl
Mat 13:45-46 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it."
When Christians can find the entrance (each pearl is a gate) into New Jerusalem (Kingdom of heaven), they will give up everything to be able to enter in.
Rev 21:21a The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl.
Mat 7:6 "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces."
If a non-believer (swine) was able to interpret these verses, then he would certainly give away everything he owned, in order to be saved, thereby entering the kingdom of heaven (pearl).In reality, the concept of salvation illustrated above is preposterous to non-believers. The truth would be quickly be dismissed as demonic teachings. In a nutshell, those who are not born again are without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. As a result, they will not be able to understand the parables of Jesus and His words which have hidden spiritual meanings and teachings, concerning the kingdom of God.
