Our TREASURES are in H E A V E N.

Jesus says: “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 treasures 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” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).

Seek GOD.

“Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore: (Psalm 105:4).

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).

To see and be with God we must believe in his only begotten Son.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:21-24).

Jesus says: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2).

“Behold, I shew you [A MYSTERY]; WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, but we [SHALL ALL BE CHANGED]” (1 Corinthians 15:51).

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST TRUMP]: for the [TRUMPET SHALL SOUND], and the [DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED]. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:52–53).

“[FOR THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN] with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the [TRUMP OF GOD]: and the [DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST], then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have [DELIVERED UP THE KINGDOM TO GOD, EVEN THE FATHER]; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:24-28).

Be READY for the DAY OF JUDGMENT!

DO NOT BE DECIVED into believing that there is any guaranteed automatic entry into heaven (Revelation 11:18)!

Our Lord Jesus is very clear when he asks: “Nevertheless when the Son of man [COMETH], shall he [FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH]?” (Luke 18:8).

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the [DAY OF JUDGMENT]. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:36-37).

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the [DAY OF
JUDGMENT]: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

The Apostle Paul reminded us when he said: “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the [DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the [DAY OF CHRIST] is at hand” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-2).

“For we must all appear before the [JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST]; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever 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” (Galatians 6:7–8).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).

“NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).

“See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
