The Rules of our Kingdom - The ask, seek and knock rule

Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV) "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: [8] For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened" ASK To achieve anything meaningful in life you must always ask: Why am I here? What do I exist for? What does God expect of me? What am I supposed to be doing right now? Which way should I go? What is my target? What must I do to reach my goal? What are the things/resources available for me to work with? Who are the people that are relevant to my purpose? Of the people in my life, who can I really count on when it matters? What am I doing right now that is wrong/not working and needs changing? Until you start asking, you are going to spend your whole life in the wrong place, chasing the wrong thing, doing the wrong thing, and investing what you should not in people that are not connect to your destiny. Do realise that it is not everything you will find out by yourself or through divine revelation so, you must learn to ask people, human beings, especially those who have gone ahead of you. Ask how to do it, where to get it, who to talk with etc. Ask ask ask! If you don't ask, you may never get it. SEEK Jesus says you can find whatever you are looking for but you've got to seek for it. Seeking involves motion - moving and going looking for something. Seeking is about doing something practical to make happen what you desire to have. For instance, if you lose a coin somewhere in your launch and you really want to find it, you dont just stand there praying and hoping that it shows up by itself. No, you will comb and overturn the whole place in search of it. That is what seeking looks like. If you really want a job, you are not going to just fast and pray, fold arms and wishing that someone will come knocking at your door to offer you one. You will go on the computer, you will buy every relevant paper and go visiting all recruiting centres in search of job. That is what seeking looks like. Never sit and do nothing, just praying and expecting something to drop down from heaven for you. Jesus says you've got to seek if you want to find it. And He promises to lead you on the way. "Thus saith the Lord , thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go." (Isaiah 48:17) Seeking may involve a lot of hard work. You may need to comb and overturn the whole place. What you seek for may not show up on the first night but you keep seeking, never tire, Jesus assures that you will find it. KNOCK To knock means to demand for. The idea behind knocking is the understanding that some doors will not just open for you of their own accord. You will have to demand for it. In other words, some things in life, even though they are your portion in destiny, will not come about easily, you will need to insist, persist and push for it. Most precious things of life, particularly those that will help to change your life and rewrite your history don't come cheap. If you will not fight for it, you may never get it. If you dont stand your ground, it may elude you Hay! Go knocking and keep knocking The door will sure open for you That is how it works in our KINGDOM MB

A gift for you from the wilderness.
The true Gospel is now delivered to you Rev 12:6 as a witness Matt 24:14.
Our heavenly Father will NOT put any child of his into a hell fire no matter what their sins. Sin doesn't scare God! He created it Isa 45:7 to teach us all the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22 for our eternal placement in his coming kingdom. Throwing a child of his into a hell fire has never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer7:31, Jer 19:5. Anyone preaching a hell fire to God's children has been deceived into teaching lies. The whole world has been believing in a god of hate murder and revenge (The devil Rev 12:9). The true word of God John 1:1 is now delivered Rev 12:5 here

God chose a woman Rev 12 to be the prophet like unto Moses Num 12:3 and Elijah Matt 17:3, Acts 3:21-23, Luke 1:17. Those professing themselves to be Christians would be wise to hear all Acts 3:23 BEFORE making any judgment. The proof of what I tell you is in the hearing.

Prove ALL things 1 Thes 5:21. Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9 until now.
