“The earth is earthy and it function by attraction yet empty”
2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
The earth has it’s own glory by which it operate and when men do not understand it they fall prey to it, it does not matter who they are. The major thing that the earth use to get men is how they cause it glory to shine yet it is empty. They make men to waste so much energy on what can not endure eternity but yet they can die for it. It will even make any man to forget that Jesus is coming back then we begin to live by it’s glory which is actually death. The strength of death will make men to live around the glory of the earth yet make no effort to access that which is eternal.
“When we can not actually live by eternal things then we perish with the glory of the earth”
The substance of eternal things has the capacity to endure eternity because their life span lies in their nature within. The glory of the earth has ability to attract but it has no weigh. Any glory that has no weigh will vanish before time and that is why the substance of the earth can expire after a time. This does not mean we should not make use of them but we must not allow our heart to cling so tightly on it, we are to know the use of them as they only come to leave us. When men allow the earthy things to get their heart they live for it and then disengage themselves with the things of the earth, knowing that we can not actually serve two masters. We can’t hold to the earth and hold to the heavenly. In fact the things of the heavenly or eternal things can easily be despised and men will not like to go for it, that’s why we need unveiling and the opening of the eyes to see how the glory of the earth is and how the glory of eternal things is. Man can not be free from the earthy unless he embraces the heavenly, scriptures says that’s where the action lies. We need the Lord to help us and to stay constantly under light so that light will expose the glory of the earth to us as they come. When a man stay so much on light he will be free as he gives his attention to light. Light make known the true nature of the earthy and causes the heart to embrace the heavenly, men become free by holding to the things of eternal. We must place so much value on the eternal things and make them always before us. We need to be discerning enough to know that the earthy are just shining and attractive to the lust of the eyes but they lack weigh. What causes the eternal thibgs to have weigh is the substance of the eternal value that it has and can endure time, but the earthy bears no glory but attracts men and cause them to give their life to it. Embrace things that are eternal today which are not seen by clinging to them in prayers and in fellowship with the Lord by operating under light. God is free from the earthy we can be free from it by staying with the Lord and staying by what He brings. Be blessed!
