  • Abhi Sewak on Matthew 7:7
    John 3:3-7 Jesus said that- "no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh,but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit....You must be born again. " The Spirit that has to be born again lies within you in a dormant state in your sacrum bone. You do not seek material gain.You only seek to be born again as Spirit to reach God.Faith in God and adherence to rightism is of-course pre-requirement.
  • MockingBird on Matthew 7:7
    You must ask according to the word of God. God will not give you anything that will turn you away from Him . He will back off and let you get what you want but He may not be in it. You cannot gamble with God . Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above , and cometh down from the Father of lights , with whom there is no variableness , neither shadow of turning.

    Randy read Romans 10 pay close attention to verses 8 10 You are correct God looks at the heart But the heart and mouth go hand in hand Romans 10 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
  • Randy on Matthew 7:7
    You create everything that happens to you by your intent and inward asking You ask and it comes to be by your thoughts which might not be what you are saying with you voice You can say anything from your mouth but what you get is what you are asking from within That is was is dominant
  • Toni on Matthew 7:7
    We must put forth effort if we want to please God First of Jesus says ask this means we must open up our mouths and talk to God Come to Him with words The fervant prayer of a righteous man availeth much Next we have to seek that means if we want God we have to look for Him whatever we need we have to diligently seek out the answer from God and finally Jesus tells us to knock If we are standing on somebody s front porch but never take the time to knock on the door then how will they know to let us in Same thing with God if we never pray if we never call on His Son if we never let Him know we want to be saved He isn t going to open the door and that door is to the Kingdom of God I do not see this verse as talking all together about financial blessings or getting a wife or a husband or a new job this verse is about asking for the Holy Ghost and the fire If we want the Holy Ghost then we must ask for Him and must not stop until God opens that door and pours His Spirit freely upon us

    Seek the kingdom of god first and then every thing required to us in his will, will be given;
    knock the door of Gods kingdom then it will be opened is the meaning of Mathew 7;7
