1. The meaning of the pearl of great price

 

On Saturday 17th May at 1. 53 pm, Jesus told me that The Pearl Of Great Price Represents The True Riches Of The Kingdom Of God. We began to talk about the Pearl in the post titled, The Kingdom Of Heaven Is Like A Merchant Man Who Found One Costly Pearl:”

 

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant (emporos/G1713) man, seeking goodly (kalos/G2570) pearls (margaritēs/G3135)

Who, when he had found one pearl of great price (polytimos/G4186), went and sold all that he had, and bought it (Matthew 13: 45 & 46).

 

Father told me that there is immeasurable wealth in His Kingdom that the people of Earth simply cannot begin to attain and comprehend. We have not seen nor heard of it. This wealth is to be pursued with interest, passion and sole dedication, after the example of the merchant.

Father said, too, that citizens of earth should leave all in order to possess His ETERNAL SYSTEMS, VALUES AND ORDER, which unredeemed people of Earth know NOTHING about.

 

2. Can God trust you with His TRUE riches?

a. Make friends with God, spend your money on His business and He will receive you into His Eternal Kingdom

Jesus gave the Parable of His true wealth in Luke 16, beginning with that of the Manager who had embezzled the owner’s money. Faced with the threat of job loss, the Manager called in the employer’s debtors and asked them to pay reduced amounts in order to earn their obligation and also to have money to present on the day of reckoning.

The Employer, who represents God, shook His head wryly and advised us:

Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your earthly possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home (Luke 18: 9).

Since humans cannot give us eternal homes, Jesus really taught us to “suck up to God” by investing our worldly resources in the Eternal Kingdom. He will receive us there and we will inherit eternal wealth, according to the scriptures:

 

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went…

For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God  (Hebrews 11: 9, 11).

 

b. God’s true wealth is not material (Luke 16: 19 -31)

To further illustrate the Doctrine that the TRUE RICHES of the Kingdom are eternal, Jesus showed us a paradox about wealth in the scenario of the Rich Man and Beggar Lazarus. Should we rather call the former the Poor Rich Man? Jesus referred to him as ‘a certain rich man’ to warn us that he was familiar in Jewish history and had actually lived in the Earth.

Contrary to popular Kingdom doctrine of this era, the poor, homeless beggar Lazarus was actually a billionaire in the Kingdom of heaven.

Lazarus sat begging daily at the gate of Poor Rich Man. He was unattractive, maybe even repulsive because of his sores. The dogs were his only healthcare providers, since they pitied him and licked his sores. Lazarus was ostracized from family and society according to Law because of his intractable medical condition.

However, Poor Rich Man received a rude awakening in the eternal realm, because he found himself burning furiously in hell, while Lazarus enjoyed eternal status and rest in the presence of Abraham, Patriarch of the nation. What an elevation of status!

Jesus told me that Poor Rich Man was exceptionally stupid and irresponsible while living in Earth. The Lord also said that Poor Rich Man was given the opportunity to invest in the Kingdom of God by helping Lazarus, according to the law of Moses. Instead, Poor Rich Man spurned the Law, invested solely in  material things and spent all on himself:

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores (Luke 16: 20 -22).

c. Role reversal exists in hell – Poor Rich Man became a beggar

Jesus told me that hell quickly opened its mouth to receive Poor Rich Man when he died. In fact, Poor Rich Man died suddenly and unexpectedly. One minute Poor Rich Man was alive, in the next, he was lifting up his eyes in shock, because he was in HELL.

Jesus told us this true story of role reversal since Poor Rich Man became a Pauper in hell, unable even to obtain a drop of water to moisten the tip of his tongue. He took on the posture of a beggar, desiring to receive what he refused to give in the earth. Destitution, said Jesus, is the true condition of those who enter Hell’s eternal doom:

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented  (Luke 16: 23 – 25).

Chief Citizens of heaven will tell off hell’s inhabitants one day on behalf of those who were rejected and underprivileged in the Earth. Poor Rich Man was such a respecter of persons that he missed his sole opportunity to minister to an important man living undercover. He deserved every bit of reproof handed out by Abraham. I wonder what Lazarus was thinking?

Let us take heed and use the resources in our possession to minister to the needs of His Ministers, dressed in the guise of poor beggars who have found the Pearl of Great Price.

Blessings, peace, angelic prosperity and protection.
