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. Matthew 13:44-46
Again we see Jesus using more parables to try and describe the Kingdom of God, he relates it to someone finding treasure in a field, and then buying that entire field because they were so overjoyed with what they discovered. This begs to question today, do people really value eternal life? When you talk to most people, they have no interest in spiritual things, all they care about are the worldly things of this present life.
This is the point I think Jesus is trying to make, why did you become saved? Why do you want to be a Christian? I don’t think the majority of people, including Christians, understand the ramifications of their salvation. In today’s Christianity, we have watered down the concept of Hell so much that in many people’s view it doesn’t even exist. Why would people fear death when there are no consequences for their sin?
Liberal theology is leading millions to Hell , if people understood the true consequences of their sin, then they would be rejoicing when they understand Jesus saved their soul. They would be like the man who found treasure and was “all in” because he understood the value of his salvation. Jesus never said your going take a peaceful nap when you die, no Christ said there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth for the unsaved
Again the next example is of a man who found a pearl that was so valuable , he sold everything he had to keep it. This is talking about the value of your salvation, do you genuinely care about your eternal soul? Most people these days don’t even believe in the concept of a soul, they don’t believe in an afterlife, many don’t even believe in God, this is why the majority of the world is totally deceived and headed for Hell
The Apostle Paul said “The natural man doesn’t understand things from the Spirit of God” (1 Corinthians 2:14) This is why people need to become Born Again to enter the Kingdom of Heaven (John 3:3) Without Christ the world is lost , with no hope and no discernment, but they can be saved and they Repent and Obey Christ, Amen!
