Jesus likened the Kingdom of God to a treasure hid in a field.
The treasure is said to be hid in a field.
The Kingdom of God and all that have to do with it are hidden.
Thus, they cannot be accessed without proper search, seeking and exploring.
They are too precious to be kept in the open; they are rather kept in a secret and hidden place.
They are too valuable to be open unto destruction, carelessness and wastefulness.
The treasure is hidden in a field.
It is thus, hid in the field waiting for a time to be explored and worked upon.
It is hidden in a field of labour and responsibility.
It is hid in the field of serious engagement and pursuit.
It is also hid in the field of devotion, commitment discipline and patience.
It is worked out by faith and hope.
This field involves both devotion and denial.
It involves serious abstinence from some comfort in order to apply the required effort.
Working in this field may cause one to look foolish before those who cannot see what he sees, but the one concerned will need to overcome every form of distraction,
The treasure needs to be found.
It needs to be found before the man can even do any reasonable thing to get it.
The treasure therefore, needs revelation for it to be accessed by any man.
It is not until any matter of the Kingdom is revealed to a man that he can work and walk in it.
Whatever a man is with God is the product of his personal revelation in that dimension.
Adam was placed in the Garden of Eden to fellowship and relate (i.e. walk) with God and to work for Him.
The treasures of the Kingdom are only enjoyed by revelation.
It is this revelation that is the bedrock of a man’s faith.
Faith is baseless without revelation.
A finding is the beginning of a particular dimension of Kingdom life for any man.
You are as great as your revelation.
You cannot step into any dimension of Kingdom life without a commensurate revelation unto it.
Your revelation determines your realm.
You are not permitted to move away from your present realm without a revelation unto a new one.
Your revelation is your realm activator.
You are only permitted to walk in the realm that you are able to see by revelation.
God told Abraham that he would give him the land of Canaan as far as he can see.
How you sound is determined by what you’ve found.
If you sound dull then you are dull in your revelation; and when you sound sharp and strong, it also depends on your revelation.
You are as real as your revelation.
If you can only operate in the realm of flesh and blood, then your revelation is only in the realm of flesh and blood.
But when the Spirit reveals something to you, you will begin to walk in the spirit realm.
In fact, you are as spiritual as your revelation.
Jesus said that the man hideth (hides) it.
The man decides to hide the treasure.
It is hidden in earthen vessels.
It is hidden in the heart of the recipient or else it will have no impact or effect whatsoever.
It is so precious that the owner hides it and at the same time the recipient has to hide it, if it must be of any reasonable use to him.
It must be found at the centre of the man’s heart.
It must be guided jealously.
It must be hidden through meditation and prayers.
It must be hidden with the fear of the Lord and with the consciousness of accountability.
It must also be hidden through honesty, patience and understanding.
You must hide it against every form of trial and temptation.
Since it is hidden, it becomes the secret of the man in question.
It is the word you keep that can keep you.
You are not permitted to be a carrier and product of divine secrets, until you hide them.
Any mystery that is revealed grants man mastery in the affairs of life.
However, a revelation that is not kept (may be through a man’s carelessness) will never keep him.
So it is not only revelation that can change a man, but there is also the need for his ability to keep it focused with the eyes of his spirit.
Thus, whatever touches your revelation touches your destiny.
When a thing of the Kingdom (salvation and others) is revealed, it introduces some level of joy in a man.
Revelation is the springing point of a man’s joy in the spirit.
To be bankrupt of revelation is to be bankrupt of joy as earlier mentioned.
Since revelation comes with light, it comes with joy.
Thus, when revelation comes, joy comes.
Revelation turns mourning into the joy of the morning.
The level of your joy is determined by the level of your revelation.
People with revelation are really people of joy.
Revelation is the conveyor of joy.
Do you need joy to spring forth in your life over your current situation?
Then you really need revelation.
No matter the responsibility attached to a revelation, the joy conveyed by it, swallows the feeling of the sacrifice and tediousness involved in the responsibility.
Revelation also causes a man to be on the go.
It is an action provoker.
A man devoid of certain actions is devoid of the revelation involved in that direction.
To lack revelation is to be dormant in pursuit.
The distance you can go is determined by your revelation.
To be devoid of revelation is to be distanced from destiny.
You are as active as your revelation.
That joy goes along with passion.
Thus, your passion is determined by your revelation.
You cannot have passion for anything until revelation comes to you about it.
Passion for carnal things results from carnal revelation (understanding); while passion for spiritual things results from spiritual revelation.
Jesus stated that the treasure is bought by the man.
It is not just gotten anyhow or collected anyhow, but it is being bought.
Treasures of the Kingdom are normally bought.
They are bought by sacrificial obedience, self-denial and commitment.
The medium of this buying is not money.
It is not of any earthly currency.
The currency for this exchange is the life of the man himself.
Once the totality of the man is yielded and surrendered to God, he can ‘buy’ all that the treasure has is stock for him.
When you are sold out for the gospel, the treasures of the Kingdom will be sold over to you.
Your purchasing power is the level at which you are sold out.
If you deny all for the Kingdom, it will release all to you in return.
What you hold back will keep you back from accessing the treasures of the Kingdom.
You cannot hold back your finances, for instance, and be begging God for finances.
What you withhold will deny you of being upheld by God.
What you withhold will cause God to withhold His treasures from you.
Why do you want God to release His treasures without your being ready to release yours?
It is an error for one to reap where he had not sown.
In short, what you withhold will hold you back.
The man sold all that he possessed.
Since the man himself was sold out, all that he had (i.e. his possession) was sold out.
When you sell out yourself and your possession, you will have a story to tell about your past as you move to a new level of exaltation.
You can’t sell out and not sail through.
Your selling determines your sailing.
How you scale unto higher heights is determined by your ‘sales’ at lower levels.
How are you selling your time, resources, efforts for the treasures of the Kingdom of God?
Jesus ‘sold’ His glory and position in heaven for the joy that was set before Him.
He was then given a name that is higher above every other name.
