“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field. (Matthew 13:44 NLT)
The eye opening moment to see that the Kingdom of Heaven is real, is not usually a glorious prayer time or trance but would be thru’ a traumatic/shocking painful time we go thru’ in this world realizing that all we see in this kingdom of the world will come an end!
When this realization of the real awaiting glorious eternity comes in us, there is an overwhelming willingness to lay down anything we’ve in order to get into the Kingdom of Heaven – the real place awaiting for all who accept the forgiveness of God in Christ Jesus.
The longingness is not to get to that Place but to get to the Person – Christ Jesus!
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. Romans 8:18
