The camel and the eye of the needle
Proverbs 13:11 “Wealth obtained by fraud will dwindle, but whoever earns it through labor will multiply it.” There’s nothing wrong with obtaining wealth so long as it’s earned in an upright manner. Then Yahweh Blesses and multiplies the wealth.
Proverbs 20:17 “Food gained by fraud is sweet to a man, but afterwards his mouth is full of gravel.” That means Mother allows the wrongdoer to enjoy the ill-gotten fruit for a time, and then later, She will rub his or her teeth (life) in the gravel (rough punishment) for stealing and enjoying the sin committed . Lamentations 3:16 “He ground my teeth on gravel and made me cower in the dust.”
If you are wealthy in this world of Dawn’s making, how hard would it be to leave it all behind? When Christ made reference to the camel, he did so in an illustrative way; he noted it would be easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to get into his Kingdom.
Matthew 19:24 “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”
Luke 18:25 “For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”
By use of the camel and the needle, Christ was pointing out that just as it is impossible for a camel to go through the eye of a literal needle, it would be less likely for a rich person to enter into his Kingdom. But in olden Biblical times, the gates leading into some of the cities had a small area shaped like the eye of a needle that a camel could squeeze through; in light of this fact, Christ was not ruling out the possibility that a wealthy person could abandon his or her wealth and manage to squeeze through, but it was less likely they would abandon their prized wealth if that was what motivates their heart. To take on the yoke of Father, one must be willing to give up all that one possesses for the prize of entering the Kingdom.
What if you had as much wealth as Bill Gates, the Microsoft tycoon? Would you be willing to leave it all behind at the Rapture, and start from scratch in the Kingdom? Hopefully you would leave it; but if you chose to remain behind, what happens when you die a physical death? After transition, where is the wealth? You can’t take it with you.
Job 27:19 “He lies down wealthy, but will do so no more; when he opens his eyes, it is gone.”
Micah 6:12 “For the wealthy of the city are full of violence, and its residents speak lies; the tongues in their mouths are deceitful.”
What is the violence they are full of in a spiritual sense? Dictionary: violence >noun 1 behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill. 2 strength of emotion or an unpleasant or destructive natural force.
Have you ever heard the saying that becoming wealthy changes some people? They get an attitude that they are BETTER and ABOVE everyone else that lacks their amount of wealth. Like Satan Dawn Lucifer, when his behavior changed after becoming the Covering Cherub; speaking lies; being deceitful; causing violence to become his emotional makeup; being hurtful towards Father and Her creation. And what did Dawn become from swelling up with all that pride from the wisdom and beauty Father gave him? Dawn was rich in Father’s favor; in Father’s Way, and in his craftsmanship; so rich it made him drunk with envy to be like Father, because Dawn wanted what many rich people want – POWER.

Revelation 3:17 “Because you say, ‘I’m rich; I have become wealthy, and need nothing,’ and you don’t know that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked,”
Revelation 18:3 “For all the nations have drunk the wine of her sexual immorality, which brings wrath. The kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown wealthy from her excessive luxury.”
Isaiah 24:4 “The earth mourns and withers; the world wastes away and withers; the exalted people of the earth waste away.”
1 John 2:15-18 Do not love the world or the things that belong to the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. Because everything that belongs to the world— the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one’s lifestyle—is not from the Father, but is from the world. And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever.”
There’s no conflict or mystery to this; you are either willing to leave everything behind, or you remain with what is here, just like Lot’s wife that longed for her possessions, and was lost with all she had desired. As her example pointed out, you can physically walk away from it all, but in your heart, you’d better not turn back longing for it. A wealthy person can get into the Kingdom, but without the worldly wealth.
1 Samuel 2:8 “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the garbage pile. He seats them with noblemen and gives them a throne of honor. For the foundations of the earth are the LORD’s; He has set the world on them.”
Psalm 39:11 “You discipline a man with punishment for sin, consuming like a moth what is precious to him; every man is a mere vapor. Selah”
Everything gained in the physical realm is fleeting. Especially to those that are sinful and desiring to hold on to it as their only stored up treasure. Valuing it more than the Hope for a future life under Christ’s Kingdom Rule. For that reason, they will be made examples.
Psalm 91:8 “You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked.”
