And as he went down the hill, he met an old widow standing in the yard, a breaking her stick together. Said, "Go in and give me something to eat, and bring me some water."
She said, "As the Lord lives, and your soul never dies, I've only got enough meal in the house to make one little cake for my son. I'm taking two sticks that I might bake this cake, and he and I eat it and die."
Said, "Go, fetch me a little water, first, and bake the cake and bring it to me." Hallelujah.
What's she going to do? There's God's provided way. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all His righteousness."

You say, "Brother Bill, my mother run away from home." "My husband won't live with me."
"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Hallelujah); all these other things will be added." That's right.
"How am I going to do it, Brother Bill?" Just go ahead and do it. Jesus said, "Follow Me." That's right. Keep your eye single. All right.
190 WITNESSES JEFF.IN V-25 N-6 53-0405E
"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God." Have you ever witnessed that to be the truth? Put God first. Pay your tithes first. Pay everything first. Pay God. Pray first at morning. Pray all through the day. Give God the first place in everything. You'll be a witness.

And went and looked at it. Put it in the--the acid and tested it. The man had a heart attack that tested the picture they took it to George J. Lacy, the head of the FBI. He examined it for four days and declared it to be a supernatural Being that struck the lens. See. Right at the time...
Don't ever worry. If God sends you, you just go ahead. See? God will take care of all the rest of it. Isn't that wonderful? "Seek--seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. All other things will be added." Just don't have to worry. God has everything.
126 ACTS.OF.THE.HOLY.SPIRIT JEFF.IN V-26 N-9 54-1219E
When a man's really, thoroughly believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, he has Everlasting Life the minute he believes. That's right. When you believe, your life will tell what you are. Your life from then will take place. All these things like shouting, and rejoicing, and speaking with tongues, and healing the sick, and all these other gifts and things, they'll not be because you done that. It'll follow you with a true sign of God. See? Oh, "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; other things will be added."

Now, all things ought to be considered prayerfully first. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these other things will be added." I am positive sure this morning if men and women could only get into the position of where their soul, their thinking, their attitudes would be perfect in the sight of God, that would be one of the most powerful churches that ever existed.
111d ENTICING.SPIRITS JEFF.IN DE 79-112 55-0724
What is it? "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness," not the Kingdom of God or a little noise, not the Kingdom of God and a little emotion, not the Kingdom of God and a little this or that, but God in His righteousness and all these other things will be added to you.

So they was wondering. But while they were thinking on Him, He appeared to them, and that's the way He usually comes to us. When you usually find your greatest blessing, you housewives? When the children's all gone to school, and you're out by yourself washing the dishes or something, when you're running the sweeper on the floor or something.
When do you men? When you're setting eating your lunch, maybe by yourself, and reading the Bible on the side, somewhere where you're on your road going home in the car, and you're meditating on... If we would let the thoughts of our heart, and the meditations of my mind be upon Him, He would appear often to us.
But the trouble, we're thinking about where we're going to make the next dollar, and what we're going to do here, and how this is going to be. Jesus said, "All these things will be taken care of, but seek ye first the Kingdom of God."
54 REVELATION.BOOK.OF.SYMBOLS JEFF.IN V-13 N-6 56-0617
See? So we got to remember that, put first things first. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; all these other things will be added unto you."

She starts back with the sticks in her hand. And the voice thundered again. "Not only do you share your water, but bring me a little morsel of bread in your hand." Bread of Life, water of Life, was it of Life? She'd die as soon as that perished.
"Bring me your water and bring me your bread." What do we find here? What lesson can we find? "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all His righteousness; other things will be added." Bring me a little water and a morsel of bread."
Then she turns in her gloom; I can hear her say, "Sir!"--something like this--"You're different from man that I've seen. And man that I can hear speak, you seem to be so positive of what you're saying. But I've only got enough meal, just a handful, and just a spoonful of oil. I'd dressed it, and I'm going to cook it with these two sticks. And I'm going to eat it, me and my son, and die. That's all I got."
E-32 BE.CERTAIN.OF.GOD LA.CA 59-0412A
See, now, here comes a great lesson. But Elijah said, "Bake me one first." Oh, what is it there? What lesson do we learn? "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness."
"Bake me one first."
And she looked. She said, "I wonder who that is? There's something about the man that seems to be different."
And he said, "Make me one first and bring it."
And she started in to do what he said. Then she heard that comforting Word that always comforts, "For THUS SAITH THE LORD the barrel will not be empty nor the cruse run dry, until the day that God sends rain on the earth."

And he said, "But first, make me a cake."
"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all other things will be added unto you." Put God first. Put His Word first. Put His Spirit first. Put Him first. Instead of that, we put Him last.

Then she heard... She started to turn again, and she heard a voice saying, "But bring me one first."
What do we learn here? Seek ye first the Kingdom of God. "How will I meet it?" I can't tell you, but you put God first. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these other things will be added."
"But bring me one first."
Look, she didn't have to go down and get her last penny; she had to go down and get her last piece of bread. She didn't have to go for this, or that, or maybe change doctors or so forth, some little insignificant thing; but she had to go to the only thing that stood between her and death, and her child. "Bring me a little cake first in your hand." I can see her nod her head, obedient. That's what God requires. You get the Word and the Spirit mixed together, self-sacrifice, obedience. When God's prophet says a certain thing, do it! Hold on to it!
E-1 IT.IS.I.BE.NOT.AFRAID CHATAUQUA.OH 59-0811
Usually, when we're going to have a few nights like this, why, we always try to have the altar services and things first, because it's written, "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then other things will be added." And I'm happy for that. And we all want to find all the favor with God that we can find, because we need all the grace that He can bestow upon us. I'm speaking for myself.

What do we get there? "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, all other things will be added." "How do I know, Brother Branham? How do I know?" Only thing I know, put God first and move all. Sacrifice; mix the oil, mix the--the Word and the Spirit together, and lay yourself upon the Cross, and say, "Here I am, Lord." Put God first in everything.
