EARTHLY TREASURES

Are you working hard to get to Heaven or hell? Most people work hard to acquire their dreams, which could be a house, car, boat or whatever, yet they are never satisfied. So there is a constant need for something bigger and better, and the more money you make the bigger the needs you seem to have, which grows into wants for  perishable items, thus replacing God in the process. There is nothing wrong in wanting better, if it will be lasting. That is why  John 6:27 tells us not to labour for the things that are perishable, but for that which endureth unto everlasting life. If you think material possessions or all these earthly treasures are not perishable, then why would fire or weather conditions, such as tornadoes and hurricanes, destroy everything you have worked so hard for all your life? Better yet, if you should die prematurely can you take anything with you?

Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt and where thieves break through and steal, instead lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where it is untouchable by the enemy as Matthew 6:19-20 tells us. However, we are reminded in 1 Timothy 6:7, that we brought nothing in this world, and it is a proven fact that we can carry nothing out. A mother’s womb is not big enough to produce a house or car along with a baby and a casket is only six by six, furthermore wherever you choose to go, be it heaven or hell there is no need for earthly items. So the question is, What profit is there if you gain or acquire the whole world and lose your soul in the process?

Luke 9:25 says it best, “For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? In acquiring these dreams and goals that people set for themselves, they lose sight of the Creator who owns it all; Because they are consumed by the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, but I must remind you that Galatians 6:7-8 says, “Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap, for he that soweth to his flesh, shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Again I ask, Are you working hard to get to Heaven or hell?

One thing is for sure, no matter how hard you work it will not save you. Ephesians 2:8 – 10 makes it clear, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” The world with its lust and desires should never entice a Christian, because once you have tasted the bread of life, then you should never hunger and thirst for earthly possessions, because our desires and tastes should be for spiritual and heavenly things. Psalm 34:8 says, O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him.

As Hebrew 2:3 says, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation…” Then Hebrews 3:15 says, “While it is said, Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in provocation.” Don’t delay, just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, and start acquiring heavenly treasures.

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I ask the Lord to loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the Omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.
