Sunday is here again. Past 2 Sunday Investment Lessons from the Bible were 1) Invest where water flows (or where liquidity flows) & 2) Most things are Cyclical Nature in Life
Today we should look at the direct teachings of God
Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God said these
King James Bible (AD 1611) (Matthew 13:44)
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
In more modern English translations
Berean Literal Bible
The kingdom of the heavens is like treasure having been hidden in the field, which a man having found, hid. And for joy over it, he goes and he sells all that he has, and buys that field.
Contemporary English Version
The kingdom of heaven is like what happens when someone finds a treasure hidden in a field and buries it again. Such a person is happy and goes and sells everything in order to buy that field.
Weymouth New Testament
"The Kingdom of the Heavens is like treasure buried in the open country, which a man finds, but buries again, and, in his joy about it, goes and sells all he has and buys that piece of ground.
Young's Literal Translation
'Again, the reign of the heavens is like to treasure hid in the field, which a man having found did hide, and from his joy goeth, and all, as much as he hath, he selleth, and buyeth that field.
Jesus said, Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field;
1) KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE A TREASURE
2) THE TREASURE IS A HIDDEN TREASURE IN A FIELD
3) THIS TREASURE CAN BE DISCOVERED which a man having found did hide,4) AND TO GET LEGAL OWNERSHIP OF THE TREASURE HE HAS TO SELL WHAT HE HAS IN ORDER TO BUY THAT FIELD THAT ENTITLES HIM TO LEGAL OWNERSHIP OF THE HID TREASURE in his joy about it, goes and sells all he has and buys that piece of ground.
THERE ARE 2 PARTS TO THIS MESSAGE
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE A HIDDEN TREASURE.
THAT TREASURE IS ETERNAL LIFE
AND THE FIELD REPRESENTS JESUS CHRIST
TO RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE WE MUST FIRST RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST.
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
In the natural world there are 2 groups of people
1) THE HUNTER GATHERER.
THIS MAN GOES HUNTING FOR WILD ANIMALS, BIRDS OR FISHES
HE GATHERS JUNGLE PRODUCE AND WILD FRUITS OR ROOTS
2) THE FARMER & HERDSMAN
HE DOMESTICATES AND REARS COWS, GOATS OR CHICKEN. HE ALSO GROWS FOOD CROPS LIKE RICE, WHEAT OR POTATOES AND CASH CROPS LIKE COTTON, PALM OIL OR RUBBER.
NOW FOREIGN TO THESE TWO IS THE "TREASURE HUNTER"
HE DOES NOT HUNT FOR LIVE THINGS. HE LOOKS FOR DEAD & BURIED THINGS
SO THERE IS A TYPE OF INVESTING UNKNOWN TO DAY TRADERS (THE HUNTER & GATHERER) OR THE LONG TERM INVESTOR (THOSE WHO BUY NESTLE OR PUBLIC BANK)
THIS MAN LOOKS FOR HIDDEN TREASURE!!!
AND AFTER HAVING DISCOVERED OR UNCOVERED IT HE SELLS HIS OTHER LESS PROMISING STUFF (HE SELLS ALL THAT HE HAS) AND BUYS THAT STOCK THAT OWNS THE TREASURE!!
THIS KIND OF INVESTING IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.
WARREN BUFFET INVESTS LIKE A FARMER/HERDSMAN
PETER LYNCH INVESTS LIKE A HUNTER/GATHERER
ONLY ONE PERSON QUALIFIES AS A SEEKER OF "HIDDEN TREASURE" HIS NAME IS WALTER SCHLOSS!!
