A lot has been written and even movies made showing the importance of every word and that there can be hidden meaning in every word in the Bible. At the same time many things that are not hidden are not understood or ignored. Many have been taught to ignore the Bible’s own definition for terms.
Matthew 13:44 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.”
In Matthew 13:44 Christ is the man who found his peculiar or special treasure hidden in the world. He re-hid His treasure. The identity of his special people is mostly not known even today. Christ then purchased the world with his blood. Watch for the terms treasure, special or peculiar treasure and Jewels. What was the special treasure?
Exodus 19:5 “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine”.
Deuteronomy 7:6 “For thou art an holy people unto Yahweh thy God: Yahweh thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “For thou art an holy people unto Yahweh thy God, and Yahweh hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.”
Deuteronomy 26:18 “And Yahweh hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou should keep all his commandments”.
Psalm 135:4 “For Yahh hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.”
Malachi 3:17 “And they shall be mine, saith Yahweh of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels (special treasure); and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
Titus 2:14 “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light”.
The special treasure is still hidden in the world and because of an impostor many are deceived as to who is the special treasure of Yahweh.
