Storing up Treasures in Heaven ...7-28-2011

What is storing up treasure in heaven?
Look around the world at people suffering from catastrophic events and have lost all they have ever worked for in less than a moment it can be taken away from any of us and is and has been taken away from many ... so when we consider how quickly our treasures of this world can be taken from us.... STOP! Ask yourself... How would you respond to great horrific loss if it came suddenly upon you today? 
Those that have lost their homes, possessions, loved ones or their own physical health are forerunners for the rest of us....  if we look at Revelation the upcoming Tribulation will reach and touch every being on the earth none will escape it... in some way all will part of it.
If you desire Jesus* as your God and all His promises to His own... then you need to be prepared.
Regardless of what time it is or day it is... what? ...we hold too dear to our hearts can have the ability to hurt us. ... even destroy us.  If we sincerely want to follow Jesus Christ as Savior ... [regardless if one is already claiming soul salvation or one is considering coming into soul salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ]  its critically essential to our betterment in the Lord Jesus...
Jesus said in my fathers house are many mansions...
John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
Treasures in Heaven  19Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
We may say; how then do we live on this earth?
...We have to live here, we need food, clothing, shelter from the elements and life is expensive... we need money to buy the things we need and then we do appreciate a vacation from our hard labor... and that cost money too and what about our old age if the good Lord permits us to live that long we need money set aside for that as well...  This world requires money ... but Jesus bids me store up treasures in Heaven... How?
It’s the heart...[Luke 12:34... Matthew 6:21]
its all about the heart.
what is in your heart will lead you
what is in your heart will flow from your mouth
what is in your heart is how you will reap your rewards ....
what is in your heart is how you will reap your rewards eternally.
Go back to the rich ruler...
Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

-sell all that thou hast is a symbol of what we are to do... every man saved in the body of Jesus* did not sell all and give to the poor... and yet are saved.-The disciples walked away from all they had; loved and held dear to followed Christ.

The rich man could not come into salvation because the god of his heart was his money. it  took fulfillment of his heart .... hence there was no room for Jesus* in his heart... the word tells us Jesus is the reader of hearts Jesus knows lip service from a sincere heart...  consider the rich man compared to the thief on the cross ...[Luke 23 Matthew 15:8 ]

The thief said]; "Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom."43And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

The rich ruler said]; 18And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

18And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God. 20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. 21And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up. 22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
23And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich. 24And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
 26And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?  27And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

 22“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
24No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
What is your eye attracted to is pleasing to the heart...
if your eye is attracted to the things of this world; your in darkness. 
The things of this world are temporary they will fade away
... Money in itself is not evil ... it’s the root that it takes in a mans heart
... man will live by the lust and hunger of money, what it can do for him,
what it can make of him, where it can take him.... the sheer numbers of increase
are exciting to him, less of it is despair to him. His world is centered on it,
founded on it and his life path is structured through it.
All he loves in the world is the money , all others will fall into place behind that;
if there be any room.
Money will possess like a cancer,
it eats away at the hearts fullness and the mind, it will bring a false light,
a false hope, a false; joy, peace and happiness... it brings delusion
that all is well and good and that there is no lack, no need for any good thing
because money has opened all the right doors in season and out of season.
‘’Money has supplied all of our needs, we are fulfilled to the very brim,
our cup runneth over.... and how be it any one ask of us to relinquish our money
for a mere trade of soul salvation...  money can buy happiness...
now perhaps it will buy eternity as well in another world..  its a risk
a lover of money is willing to take...
That’s a little dramatic perhaps and perhaps not...
’See pharos? See the Luke Warm Church of Laodiceans...
Rev 3: 14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
The Luke warm church is the only thing that makes God vomit...  she declares
she is rich and lacks no good thing ....but she is blind, lacking greatly
as Jesus declares her naked.... unsaved.
Does this mean every rich person in the world is headed for hell?
Absolutely not... the word tells us its harder for
a rich man to enter the ... not impossible.,
Its all about the heart... Job of the Bible was wealthy man he had a
good right heart in God. He was tried and tested through fire and
blessed in the end with more wealth... than he had to begin with.
So money is not banned its just that it has the potential to be a [thee] god to
men on earth. Money can blind a man and rob him of his eternal soul.
 ...the rich ruler did not know... in his heart... as the thief knew....
-The thief on the cross... knew in his heart that he was a sinner and that Jesus was Holy... He knew in his heart he needed saved from his sins. He did not ask how to be saved... He asked instead knowingly He asked ... out knowing via the fullness of his own heart he asked to be saved. 
-The rich ruler ...asked how to be saved ...the rich mans heart was full, he may have imagined salvation something he could add to all that he does indeed already possess hence, making him richer than he was to begin with. Its just another process for one that has much heap more riches upon himself ...
Got a death wish? reminded that any imagining they can wait until the threshold of death and then sincerely ask of soul salvation in Jesus* Christ the Lord....  BEWARE THAT’S NOT PROMISED AND YOU MAY MISS YOUR LAST MOMENTS ABILITY TO REASONABLY ASK.... people die many  types of deaths and a sudden surprise death is just that... enough said.
Job was a Biblical forerunner for us... Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
Do Not Worry
25“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifeb?
28And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Job lost all but his own life... not only did God make provision daily for his sustenance he lived to see  brighter days at the end of the darkest season of  his life on earth. God provided.
By faith we need to trust in the word of God... Man has fallen deeper over time as we get more modern  we have lost our way... none is righteous no not one.
The word of God is still
just as powerful
just as truthful just as lasting
as it was in the beginning
and will ever shall be. 
A time to awaken?... if there ever was a time its now..
.. all the signs are ringing the bells of coming Tribulation.
 They’re ringing around us...
!!!...Jesus is coming for His Bride ...!!!
If any man is going through the tribulation-  it comes with much suffering
even now in the birth pangs there is much suffering... loss of and death...  
the signs are all around us to wake up..
 We should get right with God;
purge ourselves before the Lord of lords and King of kings.
Take this warning to heart... no man knows how much time he has...
you need a sincere heart for seeking soul salvation.
Realize this  ... the word of God is more than  any ritual man can devise.
or any chant man has strung together.  The word of God in Sound Doctrine
is what many have lost sight of and have fallen to the wayside succumbing
to the prey of the gods of this world.
Uphold the Church of God- its everywhere you are; when you are Saved.
Uphold the House of God- check it for sound doctrine lest you go astray.
Sinners Beware:
No earthly water can wash away sin
No rituals
No good works
No set of magic words 
Soul salvation- being born again- in Jesus* the Savior of the world; 
is not a ritual....for this church and not for that church...
IT’S A COMMAND FOR ALL MEN in order that they
might enter into the Kingdom of God.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee,
Ye must be born again.
John 3:6 Flesh gives birth to flesh,
but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
1 Peter 1:23 Being born again,
not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth for ever
John 3:3 In reply Jesus declared,
"I tell you the truth,
no one can see the kingdom of God
unless he is born again."
John 1:13 children born not of natural descent,
nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and
of the heart.
1 Peter 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given
us new birth into a living hope through the
resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 John 3:9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin,
because God's seed remains in him;
he cannot go on sinning,
because he has been born of God
Romans 10:9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.
Matthew 10:32 "Whoever acknowledges me before men,
I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.
Luke 12:8 "I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men,
the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God.
Acts 2:24 But God raised him from the dead,
freeing him from the agony of death,
because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.
Storing up Treasures in Heaven after salvation is a continued process of purging oneself, growing in our spiritual journey in Jesus*always onward to be less of us and more of Him.. That means less of all the stuff the old man in us wanted... before the new man emerged... via the Holy Spirits indwelling through salvation.
Storing up Treasures in Heaven...I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire,
that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed,
and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint
thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Luke 17: Jesus bids us come into the treasure of heaven...
21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for,
behold, the kingdom of God is within you. 
[Saved that is. So if you are ready 
Praise Jesus* lets pray A SINNERS PRAYER;

Lord Jesus I am a sinner. I believe the gospel is true
that you were born of a virgin, that you died on the cross
for my sins and rose from the grave. That you who are Holy;
without sin and took my place in suffering that I may be set free;
you having paid the cost for me; through the shedding of your precious Holy blood.
I ask you now Jesus to forgive me of my sins and to separate
them from me as far as the east is from the west never to
recall them to me again. I ask you now Jesus to please
come into my heart as my Lord and Savior.
Jesus wash me clean and I will be whiter
than the snow. Thank you Jesus for hearing my hearts plea
I believe this moment you have heard my prayer and have
Saved my eternal soul. I believe I am BORN AGAIN,
filled with your precious Holy Spirit the third member of the Holy Trinity
and that now my body is not my own but is the holy temple
of the Lord Jesus Christ my Savior.

Thank you Jesus.
Thank you Heavenly Father. Thank You Holy Spirit.
Thank you my three in ONE God; my Elohim.

Praise *Jesus Amen

If you just prayed that prayer
and God Saved [beware mental ascent – that’s just lip service no heart included]

Storing up Treasures in Heaven .... NOW IT BEGINS..
Luke 15:7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more
rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over
ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

Luke 15:10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing
in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner
who repents."

Luke 15:6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and
neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me;
I have found my lost sheep.'

Luke 15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep,
if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety
and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost,
until he find it?
5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders,
rejoicing.6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together
his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me;
for I have found my sheep which was lost.
7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over
one sinner that repenteth,
more than over ninety and nine just persons,
Which need no repentance.

Jesus Blessings to you. One Day at a time Sweet Jesus.
Read your King James Version of the Bible.
Get into a Church that teaches sound doctrine.

Jack Van Impe is a fantastic teacher of the sound doctrine of Christ.
Hit the pause button and take notes. Charles Stanley is
a good preacher. The Holy Spirit will aid you...
He will direct your path when you give everything surrender all to Jesus*
and ask for guidance of the Holy Spirit in Jesus name...SO BE IT.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Matthew 10:16 Behold,
I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:
be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Jesus*Blessings to you.
