What did Jesus meant when he said, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." Was he referring to Heaven? If so, what did he specifically mean by "knock".

"Knock" means ask... sounds reasonable. Does "The Secret" really works? I thought it is just pure commercialism, backed with tons of advertising dollars. Any personal experience, Bard? Honestly, I don't know much about "The Secret".
Many people say it works. It doesn't for me but that is besides the point. I was just saying that the Law of Attraction, as it also known, has its some of its roots in the Bible. A lot of people do not realise this!
I talk to Jesus Christ a lot but I find Genesis hard to swallow. But seems like I can only hear Jesus' reply when I talk to him in the toilet and not anywhere else. Someone told me that is not Jesus. Could my talk be hijacked?
On serious note, Jesus or the Spirits talk to you when you are somewhere in between waking and still asleep. Usually around 3:30am to 4:00am-at least for me. My thoughts seem so profound then or maybe it is just the wine?
A very Christian view, LOL. But of course, we are talking about Christianity. However, your explanation is hard for those of us like me, who are non-Christian, to follow. I find Lady Guinevere's explanation more digestable for non-Christians.
I don't think of it as christian, it's truth. God is creator of all things and people so wouldn't He have the right to set the way for all creation to function.whether we like it or not?
If you believe that God is the creator of all things, then you are right. But Buddhism and science do not agree to that. That's why I said non-Christians will find it hard to accept your explanation. Nevertheless, it's good to have all viewpoints.
Hahaha Walter, they think that I am an atheist, the Devil, Satan and now a Drama Queen and I AM just a Christian who doesnt conform to their rules. Watch them judge others and then expect all to believe as they do. CULT doesn't allow other views.
Lady Guinevere, when I read your answer, I thought you would be considered a model Christian by most people. Seems like I am wrong, LOL.
Rayne, thanks for the reply. So that verse is not referring to "Heaven", when Jesus said, "Knock and it shall be opened unto you? What is the "it"? Your second paragraph seems to suggest that "it" refers to the door to God.
yes the door to God, I dont think God means heaven as we all have abundance here on earth if we follow his will. He wants us to find and seek him here on earth for the pleasures of God, thank you
