- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
6:33 Seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness - Singly aim at this, that God, reigning in your heart, may fill it with the righteousness above described. And indeed whosoever seeks this first, will soon come to seek this only.
Mt 6:33 Seek ye first the kingdom of God. The promise is made that if we seek it first, and its righteousness, all earthly wants will be supplied. The condition demands, (1) That we seek the kingdom "first" in point of time. Some propose to secure a competence, and after they have gained it, they will serve God. (2) We must make it "first" in importance. Everything else must give way before its demands. (3) It must be "first" in our affections, have our whole hearts. We must "love the Lord our God with the whole heart" (Mt 22:37). His righteousness. The righteousness that God bestows upon those who are in the Kingdom, Christ's righteousness, the forgiveness of sins in his name.

This means putting Jehovah's standard of what is right and what is wrong ahead of human norms. Even when the majority of people are doing what God disapproves of.

This is Literal... seek the literal kingdom in these last days... where they keep true worship. And secondly there is a sanctuary in Heaven operating right now where Yashua (Jesus) is interceding on your behalf. So to get right with him,,, or become one with him... have your sins blotted out in the sanctuary that is operating right now in Heaven. So find his Kingdom and do his righteousness. Asking forgiveness daily going before the throne.

this is Literal: there is a Kingdom to rise up in these Last Days that we are living in right now. And there is a Sanctuary in Heaven that operates right now... with Yashua interceding on your behalf... that is how you become righteous. So find the real kingdom and get right through the sanctuary system. This is what this literally means.

We as children of GOD look to HIM for all things. Follow after HIM imitate our FATHER. Desire to do as HE does. Love HIM with all our heart mind soul and strength. And HE like a loving FATHER delights to see HIS children following in HIS steps;embraces them cares for them and supplies their every need.

"Seek ye first, the Kingdom Of God..." I believe He is saying BEFORE you DO anything, confer with Him first. Remember He is our GUIDE. "And His righteousness..." Doing what He would DO, "And all these things shall be added to you..." He shall give you your food, water, clothing, etc. He clothes the grass and feeds it, and His people are worth more to Him than grass. He takes care of His people completely when His people faithfully put Him first.

This is the principle of Mattew 6:33. The moment we seek or look first after the kingdom of God; He 'Jesus' will cause everything needed to search and find us.

We always end up crying if our plans and programs go failing. This is most especially because we do not put God first in those plans. I'm sure He will not ignore us if we consider Him the priority.

One of the greatest weaPon of the Devil is fear and anxiety. But as a true believer we must understand d fundamental principle of God for our life. God is our father and he totally own us. The bible recorded it that all God created is good. Believe me or not you are part of God creation and he as created you for a purpose and he has naturally endowed us with everything which we need. But to have a life fulfiled live we must remember GOD DEMAND FROM US AND THAT IS GOD KINGDOM AND RIGHTHEOUSNESS. Jesus was very clever enough to have understand this, when satan showed him all the world and ask him to worship him, so that he casted away servant of God will give to d Son is rightful heritage without d consent of the father. GOd owns everything aLl but we have got to understand his demands from us as well. Thanks for reading.

It is very powerfull words, Jesus new already that we are in the world where people will never get contented or satisfy with whatever what they have, people will keep on pulse after material thing rathan than spitual things, seeking the kingdom of God and his righteousness first will help us to focus on God only and forget all other things that may be content with our spirit mind.

As true christians, Mathew 6:33 is required of us to make the Kindom of God our priority, then all things will fall in place for our good and to the glory of God almighty.
Archie's comment on 2013-07-01 00:59:13:
Jesus also gave a precise location for this Kingdom that we are to seek. Jesus has said that the Kingdom of God is within us. So, let us look within, keeping the gaze of our loving heart within - and that all that is needed. The answer to our troubles does not lie in the outside world. It is here within our very own breast. You are very close.

Matthew 6:33,is what i call the master key to a world of unlimited breakthrough,it makes what other are running after to run after us,this is one key every true believer must possess,the desire to always attend to God and His kingdom first. Matthew 6:33 and Psalms 37:4, to me is the most powerful scripture in the bible. PEACE.

God even has a plan for us beyond what we can expect. With God there's no backup plan...not even a plan to backup the backup plan
