The Treasure

The field is the world. There is a treasure hid in it. A man finds it, and for joy thereof sells all that he has and buys the field.
Observe, not a word of failure as to men or methods comes in here. We believe that in the figure of the treasure we have a picture of all those who share in the blessing that comes to light through the death of Christ. True it is that the Old Testament believer does not enter into a Kingdom which could only begin with a rejected Christ, but in the resurrection they will be raised, and as resurrected will have their part in the Kingdom of Heaven on the heavenly side of it. They can never have part in the Kingdom in mystery, for they passed off the scene before that kingdom came into being, but they will have their part in the Kingdom in display. Luke 13:2828There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. (Luke 13:28) proves this.
