J. Preston Eby says;
Only righteousness can satisfy. That is the law of the Kingdom. Should you be given power without righteousness, it would not satisfy. Would not it have been surprising, for instance, if Jesus had said, "Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after knowledge." How great a thing is knowledge! "Knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven," said Shakespeare. There is not much danger these days of underrating knowledge. The pursuit of truth, the unveiling of nature's secrets, the development of technology, the exploration of the universe is mind-boggling. Alexander the Great so valued learning that he used to say that he was more indebted to Aristotle for giving him knowledge than to Philip his father for giving him life.
".... When such a life hungers and thirsts for knowledge then it becomes power. If we desire the knowledge of God and the knowledge of His Kingdom only for the sake of knowledge, then we will never be conformed into God's image, we will never attain unto incorruptible life, nor will we ever rule in the Kingdom of God. Head-knowledge of Kingdom truths is only so many sticks and pieces of coal. There is no power. Nothing will ever be accomplished. I meet people continually who can mouth all the right phrases and are able to speak Kingdom terminology, they know all the doctrines inside-out, but it has never burned in their lives, it has never been translated into power in their experience. But even when the power of the Kingdom begins to operate within, we are not satisfied. There is yet a void, a lack, something is missing, we are still hungry and thirsty. ONLY RIGHTEOUSNESS CAN SATISFY! I would not be mistaken in saying that you will be far more blessed, dear friend, more satisfied, more filled by possessing righteousness without power than in having power without righteousness. That is the law of the Kingdom of God.
