     I've been trying to say if you are seeking the kingdom of heaven , search the scriptures an there in the higher elevated understanding you will see heaven.
That's strange. Jesus said if we wanted to see the kingdom of Heaven, we should become like little children not theologians!

Luke18v15And they were bringing even their babies to Him so that He would touch them, but when the disciples saw it, they began rebuking them. 16But Jesus called for them, saying, ?Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17?Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.?

There were plenty of theologians such as the scribes, Pharisees, and teachers of the Law, all hanging around Jesus, but Jesus elevates a child above them and their theology!
Matt18v1In that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, ?Who then is the greatest in the kingdom of the heavens??
2And having summoned a child, He set it in their midst, 3and said, ?Truly I say to you, if you are not converted and become as the little children, you shall never enter into the kingdom of the heavens. 4Therefore whoever will humble himself as this little child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of the heavens.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

Hi Frances
For once I agree with you  :thumbs_up: I have tried reading some of those theological books but understand very little so now I stick to the bible itself and work on the assumption that God wants me to understand it so why make it more complicated than necessary do I really need to learn Hebrew Aramaic and Greek to understand what he wants me to know.
WE have to become like children and God speaks to us as children we need to understand as his children I believe what God wants us to Know is in his word the Bible we don't need to dissect every word jot and tittle to understand it.

Love and Peace

     Well I'm sure you don't think I was as a little child and born again , humbled and most happy to learn and be with the Lord. But I was. Because I feed the Lords sheep as he told me too, Do I preach myself? You compare me to pharacies and teachers of the law but all I speak is about the Kingdom and the Holy Spirit. Did you ever think it might be you that needs to be converted and humbled and be as a little child and listen to what the Lord has given me to do.
