"@John Tivatyi, I think the key words may actually be "seek" and "first." We are commanded to hold our position in Eternity with such importance that we put it at the top of our list. If we live our lives first for God and second for ourselves, we shall receive the gift of eternal life in the end, come judgment day, when Christ returns. And, in the meantime, we shall continue to be blessed according to His will."
"Got to stay in God's word and keep your mind on the heavenly things!"
"It is plain as daylight ! It needs no revision , nor alteration! "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matt. 6:33 Amen!"
"Matthew 6:31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. "These things shall be added to you" What things? Eat, drink and clothes. In other words the basics, not Leer jets, $2600.00 suits, gaudy jewelry, the newest cars, the biggest houses, trips around the world to play golf. Just the basics, why you ask... Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. 15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. So much for a prosperity gospel..."
"The King James Version is the only really Version there is.. If you can't understand the King James Version then you're not saved.. If you are saved the understanding if there.. is what a pastor told me a long time ago years ago.."

"@Dudi Isaac, If you're wondering, there's a problem. You must follow God's plan according to His written word. Hear, believe, repent, confess, and be baptized. If you've not been baptized for the right reasons and you're not studying God's word, you're never going to know what it feels like to truly be thankful for the blessings our Lord has bestowed upon us. Because His most gracious and generous gift is that of his only begotten Son (John 3:16) for our salvation. And his resurrection (Rom 10:9) that we might have hope of eternal life with our Father in His Kingdom, Heaven. This is how you know. Remember, (Rom 6:3) "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?" Until you are baptized for the proper reason for the proper belief in your mind and heart you'll not have the peace (Phil 4:7) of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus."
"A reversed, convoluted theology is often derived from applying this verse wrongly. People preach: "If you desire all these things, then seek God." But that idea is the opposite of this statement Jesus makes. Jesus did not say that in order to get things, get close to God. He said to seek God and his righteousness. If one seeks God first- God is the goal - then as an unsought secondary result, the things to which Jesus refers will be added. Similarly, the verse: "Delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart" is also misinterpreted and wrongly applied. Ask David, who was "a man after God's heart". Many folks similarly misunderstand various prayer promises by Jesus. Ask James, John and their mother. Christianity is not self centered. Jesus said: Love God - love others."

"Finally, KJV. There isn't anything else"
"For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Romans 14:17. We see in this verse to seek the kingdom of God is to seek God's righteousness - which can be found only in Christ Jesus the Lord, peace - which means access to God and fellowship with Him, joy in the Holy Ghost - our walk in the Spirit."
