Adding a Spiritual-Dimension to the "Freeman on the Land" Concept.
14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he can NOT be my disciple.
The King that comes with 20,000 is Christ/Michael with His angels. The king with 10,000 is the aspirant disciple with his family, extended family, friends, acquaintances, work colleagues, neighbours and most other human+beings, etc., who were all part of Satan’s army in the war in heaven against God and Christ.
12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon (Lucifer); and the dragon fought and his angels,
12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out to the earth, and his angels (you - Luke 9:55) were cast out with him (Matthew 25:41).
So the disciple, by forsaking ALL that he hath (leaves ALL the other followers of Satan), demonstrates that he has changed sides completely and starts to earn the trust of Christ, Who teaches the student The Way of discipl(in)e (taking up his cross of self sacrifice daily).
 Christ is one of the titles that Michael goes by, when on Earth, meaning The Awakened One, The Anointed One, The Enlightened One. And Messiah and Buddha have the same meaning http://jahtruth.net/Buddha .
