They were happy to relieve the rich man, by the explanation to the ‘Camel Needle Eye’ that salvation was, in fact, possible. They were desperately overlooking the witnesses of that day, who’d already concluded, impossible. What part of this word do we fail to understand?
Let me tell you about the rich, their tenacity rises to the challenge. They have the servants and the resources, they have the time and aptitude. If they considered there was profit in the endeavor, and all they needed to do was pass all their possessions through a ‘narrow entry into that city,’ then they will make sure anyway needed, with a whip and harsh instructions, even if it needs to be dismantled brick by brick and reassembled, then by hook or by crook, they will enter that passageway into that city and nothing will stand in their way. Whatever the ‘Camel Needle Eye’ really is, it, therefore, should be considered that both Jesus and the Disciples alluded to the solid facts, that this endeavor was impossible.
Jesus said, ‘Impossible,’ they asked ‘Who can be saved?” Listen up here, get over yourselves, even the rich with all their endless endeavors, can-not change the odds. Impossible means just that. Therefore, it can only be God who saves, both the rich and the poor, equally to all those that call upon His name. All the works of the flesh, that human life, can’t please God, however pompous it could be.
And the disciples were astonished at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God!
“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
And they were greatly astonished, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved?”
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
