“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God,” Mark 10:25.
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it,” Matthew 7:13.
“Does not wisdom tell you to refrain from speech that is not profitable?
Seek the way that only those who know Me have found. Look unto Me,” says the Lord, “and tell Me:
Is there anyone who has been rewarded with riches and wealth, who has been able to take them with them?
Many seek after these things, thinking that their lives will be better. They find a life of ease and comfort and they pave their way towards acquiring more and more.
For the thirst for riches is a never-ending struggle. It is an insatiable thing. For have I not said that it is easier for a camel to enter through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven?
I have called you to give up the things of this world. I have called you to put Me first in your life.
It’s not to say that you would have all that you need; but having what you need is different than having what you want.
Remember that ‘godliness with contentment is great gain.’ Many in the past have fallen into this trap. The world is not your home. Your home lies within My Kingdom.
I AM the precious pearl that would be found in a field. I AM the Stone that the builders rejected.
I came to my own and yet my own rejected Me. They rejected Me because they didn’t know the way, even though I showed them the way.
The way is a narrow way; it is not the road that is wide, for the world always takes the easier way. But if you travel down the narrow road then you will walk with Me.”

Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to the LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
