The quotes below are direct speech from Jesus Christ:

1. Matthew chapter 6 verse 19 to 21

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; “but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.”

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

What are the Treasures in Heaven?

Heaven is the abode of the Almighty God which is also the place the LORD prepared to receive the genuine Christians who leave this corrupt earth. I am privileged to have a glance of the beautiful heaven, but I cannot describe all the wonderful treasures in heaven.

1. Breath of Peace and Joy

Sincerely speaking, the peace in heaven does not exist in the midst of the most peaceful person on earth. The air you will breathe in heaven is peace and joy. Comparatively, the air we breathe on earth is like passing big rocks through our nostrils!

The LORD told me to read this bible verses to you:

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.” (Galatians 6: 15-16)

“The treasure of peace awaits you if you follow the rule of holiness!”

2. Beautiful Mansions

Trust me, the heavenly abode for the children of God is not only an open peaceful colorful field. The Beautiful mansions I saw should be a strong reason for us to store up treasures in heaven. The size of your mansion will be determined by the size of your earthly investment in the lives of the poor and needy.

Jesus Christ says: “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. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:2-3)

3. Beautiful Golden Crowns

Jesus Christ encourages you to share your earthly wealth with the poor people on earth so that you can have exceptional rewards in heaven. Golden crowns in heaven are not for the selfish Christians.

“…and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.” (1Peter 5:4)

I look forward to enjoying the massive treasures in heaven.

The Danger of Laying Up Treasures on Earth

Store up of treasures on earth means:

1. Paying tithes only to the church pastor and ignoring the poor church members.

2. Spending huge amounts of money to build massive record-breaking church buildings while all the wretched church members are struggling to survive.

3. Fleet of cars in your custody without releasing some to the poor for transport business. Throwing millions of dollars around for maintenance of your jet.

4. Your real estate is strictly for making money and there is no plan to harbor some homeless people around you.

5. You want to be recognized as the richest man in the society and not to be ignored on the Bloomberg billionaire’s index. Did you stack so much gold in your vault and huge amounts of cryptocurrencies?

Danger for laying up treasures on earth is not limited to the following:

1. It takes your heart away from the LORD (just like the case of king Solomon).

2. Your heart can never think about going to heaven because all your treasures are on earth. You will easily believe the false teaching that heaven does not exist.

3. Hackers or Government policies can make you run into bankruptcy.

4. You will find it easy to sell your soul to the devil (just the way Jesus Christ was tempted though He never falls).

5. Fire hazard or world war can consume your treasures on earth without remedy.

Real wealth is obtained by investing in “treasures in heaven.”

10 Steps Christians Can Store Up Treasures in Heaven

1. Seek First the Kingdom of God

Jesus said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). By prioritizing your relationship with God and seeking His will above all else, you store up treasure in heaven.

When you put God first, you align yourself with His purposes and experience the blessings that come from living in obedience to Him.

2. Obey God’s Commandments

Obeying God’s commandments is an essential part of storing up treasure in heaven. Jesus said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15). When you live in obedience to God’s Word, you demonstrate your love for Him and store up eternal rewards.

3. Give Generously to the Poor

One of the most powerful ways to store up treasures in heaven is by giving generously to the poor. Proverbs 19:17 says, “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”

When you give to the poor, you are showing compassion and love, and God promises to reward you abundantly.

4. Serve Others with a Humble Heart

Jesus taught us that true greatness comes from serving others. When you serve others with a humble heart, you store up treasures in heaven.

In Matthew 23:11-12, Jesus says, “The greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

5. Share the Gospel

Sharing the gospel is a powerful way to store up treasures in heaven. When you share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others, you are participating in God’s redemptive work and bringing people into His kingdom.

Jesus Christ commands us to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19) and not to sit for many hours in the mega church building, and as we obey His command, we store up eternal rewards.

6. Forgive Others

Forgiveness is a crucial aspect of the Christian faith. When you forgive others, you reflect the forgiveness that God has shown you.

Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:14-15, “For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

By extending forgiveness, we store up treasures in heaven.

7. Live a Life of Holiness

Living a life of holiness is essential for storing up treasure in heaven. Leviticus 11:45 says, “For I am the LORD who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.”

When you live according to God’s principles and maintain your holy lifestyle, you honor Him and store up eternal rewards.

8. Use Your Talents for God’s Glory

God has given you unique talents and abilities. When you use these talents for His glory, you store up treasure in heaven.

9. Cultivate a Heart of Gratitude

Gratitude is a powerful attitude that can help you store up treasures in heaven. When you cultivate a heart of gratitude and thankfulness, you acknowledge God’s goodness and faithfulness in your lives. The Devil will find it difficult to penetrate your heart.

10. Walk in Love

Walking in love is a foundational principle for storing up treasure in heaven. Jesus commands us to love one another as He has loved us (John 13:34). When you love others sacrificially and unconditionally, you demonstrate the love of Christ and store up eternal rewards.

Benefits of Laying up Treasures in Heaven

No one can know all the gains until we get to heaven, so it is not limited to the following:

1. Endless Enjoyment into Eternity

2. No sickness! No weeping! No sorrow!

3. Eternal Peace

4. You won’t partake in the unimaginable suffering of hell fire.

Read the book of Revelation chapter 21 and 22 for more information about the gains of storing your treasures in heaven.

As Christians, I encourage you to store up treasures in heaven by seeking God’s kingdom, obeying His commandments, giving to the poor, serving others, sharing the gospel, forgiving, living with holiness, using your talents for God’s glory, cultivating gratitude, and walking in love.

The Divine Power will help you as you obey the commandments of the LORD in Jesus’ name.
