TREASURE IN HEAVEN
TREASURES IN HEAVEN BIBLE VERSE
WHAT IS THIS
TREASURE IN HEAVEN?
Treasures are a collection of precious things that one stores up ...
If you "treasure" something, that means that you cherish it,
or it has extraordinary meaning or value to YOU.
children, most of us had our own lil secret treasure box of
some sort, where we stored up everything that had Spiritual
or sentimental value to the inner child within each of us.
We would open it often and review all of the contents within
and these TREASURES remained within our minds and hearts.
Yeah ... As children, we seemed to see the
value in a letter from a friend, a mood ring or some
worthless rock that we found. We found these things to be ...
But, as adults ... Many choose to store up
things the world finds valuable. They seem to have lost that
childlike love for the Eternal things in life and have
traded up for the temporal things.
However ... The Lord asks us to instead store
up ... Treasures in Heaven, not on earth.
TREASURES IN HEAVEN BIBLE VERSE STUDY
WHO GETS THIS TREASURE IN HEAVEN
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth
and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and
steal: But lay up for yourselves Ttreasures in Heaven, where
neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there
will your heart be also.
A rich man asked Jesus what he must do to
gain Eternal Life.
Jesus answered ...
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One
thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast,
and give to the poor, and thou shalt have TREASURE IN
HEAVEN: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
Christians, our goal is to be as much like Jesus as we can
be ... To follow in His footsteps. We walk around asking
others, What Would Jesus Do, but why have we never
considered, How did Jesus feel about being poor? He
certainly could have chosen to live a more comfortable life,
but what DID He do? Was Jesus rich? Was Jesus what we
call middle class? Was Jesus even above poverty level?
The answer is that Jesus lived as if He was
poor. Jesus was homeless in fact.
And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the
birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not
where to lay His head.
Allow me to share a parable that Jesus shared
with us ...
And He spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a
certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought
within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no
room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do:
I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will
I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my
soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years;
take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.But
God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be
required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which
thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for
himself, and is not rich toward God.And He Jesus said unto
His disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for
your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye
shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is
more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow
nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God
feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature
one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is
least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the lilies
how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say
unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like
one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to
day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how
much more will He clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek
not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be
ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of
the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have
need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
is obvious in this parable it speaking against those who
seek worldly riches and creature comforts and that the
balance will bring horrible results to this soul:
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare,
and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in
destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root
of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred
from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many
Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that
shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your
garments are motheaten.
But, this does not describe most of you that
are reading this today as most are all pretty much broke as
a joke and just trying to get by day to day.
Is this saying that Jesus expects us all to sell everything
we have and follow Him?
What about paying our bills huh? How can we
pay our bills if we sell all, surrender our worldly goods,
values and even our jobs, to serve Him? How would we eat?
Where would we live?
why does Jesus ask us to sell all and follow Him?

HOW DO WE OBTAIN THIS TREASURE IN HEAVEN
My friend ...
HERE IS TRUTH ...
WE did not ask Jesus this question.
Jesus was talking to a RICH man and this is
why He asked HIM to sell all.
For the TREASURE of the rich manís heart was his wealth.
Soooooooo, that Scripture doesnít mean that
if we want to be good Christians that we should ALL give up
our homes and our jobs like the Apostles did, but rather to
beware making worldly views your TREASURES.
It was necessary for the Apostles to leave
their homes and jobs and families, because their role as
Apostles was quite different than the role of todayís
So, does this exclude the financially poor
from storing up Treasures In Heaven?
Not hardly ...
So ... What are these treasures that we are
to be storing up:
....... Give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not
old, a Treasure in the Heavens that faileth not,
where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For
where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
It appears that Treasures in Heaven are acts
of sacrifice and charity ... Not necessarily money, but just
showing unconditional Love for others.
How do we obtain these "Treasures in Heaven"
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth
forth that which is good ...
... These Treasures In Heaven, are obtained by giving of
ourselves (Without personal gain) to others.
Now, it is obvious that there ARE those who
are called to His cause and ARE asked to sell all worldly
goods and follow Him, just as the Apostles were and the rich
man was. This is because God knows that these worldly
TREASURES will interfere with HIS calling for them.
TREASURES IN HEAVEN BIBLE VERSE SUMMARY
TREASURE IN HEAVEN TRUTH
Lemme ask you a question ... What happens if we KNOW we have
been called to surrender something and choose not to? Do you
believe that the Lord would take what we have? From our
businesses, transportation, health, our loved ones and even
Spiritual gifts to grab our attention?
you believe that this has this ever happened to you?
so ... WHY do you believe the Lord would take these things
we TREASURE from us?
He is teaching us to increase our Faith in
the next realm and to place our Treasures in Heaven ... Not
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God
chosen the POOR of this world RICH IN FAITH, and heirs of
the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love Him?
as Jesus did ...
2 Corinthians 8:9
For ye know the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though
He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye
through His poverty might be rich.
We are to STORE UP these Treasures In Heaven
by serving HIM, showing this Unconditional Love for others
and sharing the TRUTH of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the
lost and troubled.
God is keeping track of YOUR Treasures In
Shouldn't you be too?
