The 11.5-kilogram (25.35-pound) oval gemstone named “Teodora” or “God’s Gift,” figures out to 57,000 carats and was appraised Monday at $1.15 million, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported. It goes up for sale Jan. 28.

A huge emerald stone was found and it was so huge and rare and people named it “the Gift of God.” Even though it was appraised at $1.15 million, a dealer gave real appraisal by saying, “Really the sky is the limit.” There are people who will pay anything to get this biggest and rarest gem stone. Spiritually Jesus taught the same thing and he taught us that there is a true gift of God that we must seek and get even though we might have to sacrifice everything we have.
Matthew 13:44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. 45“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.
Then what is the teasure or pearl which worth more than anything we have? What is the treasure which we should get even though we have to pay with everything we have? What is the gift of God?
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The bible teaches us that the true gift of God we must seek is “eternal life.” That is why Jesus also taught, “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?” (Mt 16:26) The life for the soul, or the eternal life is the most important thing we must seek.
And to give us this gift of God, he also let us know how to receive this gift of God, eternal life. He said, “Whoever eats my flesh and and drinks my blood has eternal life,” (Jn 6:54) and again he said, “This bread is my flesh and this cup of wine is my blood.” (Mt 26:26) He sacrificed even his own life to give us this precious gift of God, eternal life.
But is there any who has wisdom to recognize the true value of the gift of God? We are acting like animals which have no wisdom trampling the precious gift of God down and denying the value of it. Even though once we might have rejected the gift of God out of our ignorance, but now we must have wisdom and understanding to know the spiritual things and its value.
Christ Ahnsahnghong brought this precious truth of the Passover back to us, which was trampled down by the work of Satan in 325 AD and let us know the truth of the Passover. We should give thanks to God Elohm, Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem for giving us this true gift of God, eternal life.
