The Unseen Treasures Within God’s Kingdom – 2


treasures in heaven


The validity of earthly treasures

In my previous article, I unveiled some revelations about treasures. Treasures are unique pearls people cherish with all their hearts. You don’t give a precious asset to a careless person because he will mishandle it.

Treasures come to us in several ways. It doesn’t matter how precious an earthly treasure is; it will expire. What people treasured in the seventeenth century is obsolete in our generation. For example, people in the twentieth century cherished the post office because they could send a message to a loved one in another place without their presence.

However, e-mails and social media have made sending messages to loved ones easy in the twenty-first century. Irrespective of the person’s location, you can send a message to a loved one in a twinkle of an eye.

If you had a mobile phone in the twentieth century, people saw you as rich (a treasure). However, mobile phones have become common in our century. As the world advances, the things we treasure become common.

A time will come the internet will be odd. The incoming generation will have a better and faster way of doing things. Who thought we could speak to one another face-to-face in different countries?

Who thought we could transact business in any country without being in that territory? Who thought we could travel in the air, under the earth, underwater, and in space? However, technology has made it easy for people to travel underwater, under the ground, and in the air.

Today, anyone can do almost anything with their electronic device. Some people treasure jet planes, yachts, trains, airplanes, cars, bicycles, motorbikes, television, and computers. However, it has become common in our century.

This should tell you that the treasures of this world have an expiry date. Today paper money and coins have become obsolete. You don’t necessarily need physical cash to transact business. People can transact business with their electronic devices.

You can order anything with your electronic device if you have digital cash. In our century, several people no more treasure natural resources such as gold, diamond, oil, manganese, and bauxite.

Data is the treasure of the day. You can make money with extensive data on people, places, and industries. Physical marketing is gradually fading because of the advancement in technology. Soon, robots (artificial intelligence machines) will take over numerous works.

The educational degree you are pursuing is nothing in the eyes of robots because they can do a better job. Your certificate in marketing, accounting, human resource, and administration is nothing in the eyes of robots because they have enough data to work with.

The accounting, marketing, banking, and customer service jobs are gradually fading. Your certificate is becoming odd because machines can do a better job. Soon, drivers will become odd because self-driving cars are in town.

You don’t necessarily need someone to teach you to drive because automatic cars are in town. As the day passes, new and better cars arrive. The vehicle you treasure with all your life will become odd because better ones are coming.

The electronic device you treasure with all your heart will become obsolete because better ones are coming. The house you adore with all your heart will become obsolete because better ones are coming.

The books you treasure will become odd because better ones are coming. Either the author updates the book, or it becomes irrelevant. However, books with their foundation in the Word (the Holy Bible) will withstand life's storms.

Lecturers keep revising and updating their books in schools because it needs changes. Today, diesel cars are fading. Solar and electrical energy cars are in town. Mobile phones with better charging systems and high technological advancement are in town.

In the twentieth century, a man with a computer with a one-gigabyte hard disk or memory was seen as a superhero (treasure). However, technology has changed everything. Today, people have computers with 1 Terabyte hard disk.

A time will come one terabyte of hard disks will become obsolete. Suppose you have a computer or phone with a low graphic cards, a hard disk, and memory. You cannot play the latest games and use specific applications.

My laptop cannot play most games today because of low video graphic cards, memory, and hard disk. Although I hardly play computer games, once in a while, I play soccer on my machine. So, what is my point here?

What you treasure today will become irrelevant tomorrow. This should tell you that the treasures of this world will pass away or become irrelevant in the future. It doesn’t matter how rich you are; you will not leave this world with your money, cars, business, and assets.

Donating to this ministry would help because it is a kingdom treasure. I will write about giving, so keep reading. Acquiring earthly assets isn’t evil because Abraham, Job, Solomon, and Christ Jesus’ disciples were wealthy.

Christ Jesus became poor so we can become rich (see 2 Corinthians 8:9). However, you lose if you have worldly assets and ignore the kingdom treasures. Possessing earthly treasures and, at the same time, accumulating kingdom treasures is the best. After all, we shall leave the worldly treasures.


For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Matthew 16:26 KJV

Earthly riches are not evil. It is how you acquired them and how you use them that makes them evil. If you are using your earthly treasures to build God’s kingdom, that’s a blessing! However, if you are using the world's treasures to promote ungodly things, it becomes evil.


Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

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 unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

John 14:1-4 KJV

Christ Jesus promised us that there are mansions in heaven. Jesus did not say houses. Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus said many mansions. This means numerous mansions are in heaven. Jesus said he is preparing one for us.

Why don’t you seek after the mansions in heaven? It would be a great disaster if you have earthly treasures, yet you don’t have any treasure in heaven. No one can destroy or steal your treasures 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 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 KJV

Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus is not saying we shouldn’t get earthly treasures. He is saying that we shouldn’t accumulate treasures for ourselves only. However, we must set up treasures that will benefit others.

We must build treasures that will bring glory to God. For instance, giving funds to build a glorious or ultra-modern church for a ministry is a treasure. That treasure is not for yourself. Note the word of Christ Jesus, LAY NOT UP FOR YOURSELVES treasures upon earth.”

I have capitalized the word LAY NOT UP FOR YOURSELVES.” Accumulating treasures for yourselves is the problem. Secondly, animals can destroy earthly treasures you store for yourself. Some people have built large houses and businesses.

However, no one is living in those houses. Those houses, businesses, mansions, and properties have become animals' habitation because they built them for themselves. Jesus stated that thieves can even break in to steal earthly treasures.

Haven’t you read and seen criminals breaking into banks, businesses, and properties to steal? This should tell you that you cannot put all your trust in earthly treasures. Earthly treasures are good.

However, they are temporal. If you are building an earthly asset, let people benefit from it. Let those treasures have eternal value. Build the kingdom of God. If you lay up treasures for yourself in this world, you will focus on those things and reject Christ Jesus (the church).

You can backslide if you place all your faith in earthly things. Your love for God and things of God will grow cold if you build treasures for yourself only. The devil can use the treasures you have acquired for yourself to manipulate you and those connected to you.

It is time to concentrate on the kingdom's treasures. As stated, earthly treasures are not evil. It becomes sinful when you build it for yourself only. How you acquire the earthly treasure and how you use it can make it evil or good. However, the kingdom's treasures are eternal. No one can steal them from you!


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV

Your labor in the Lord will not be in vain if you do it from your heart. Your labor in the Lord will not be in vain if you do it by the Holy Spirit's commands. There are rewards (treasures) for your good works.

Do it from your heart, and you will receive the kingdom's treasures. Below are ten ways to acquire the kingdom's treasures. Kindly share the link to this article so others can grow in wisdom and power.


Ten ways to acquire heavenly treasures


how to store up treasures in heaven

1. Effective Evangelism

One of the ways to acquire kingdom treasures is to be a dedicated soul winner. I love evangelism because it’s my calling and passion. If I can remember, I started evangelism in Junior High School.

As I am writing this article, I am still in the business of evangelism. Winning souls into God’s kingdom is a divine seed. The more you win and establish souls in the kingdom of God, your treasures in heaven accumulates.

Like an investor, he receives dividends (interest) on his shares. A man who buys treasury bills accumulates funds. If he invests one million Ghana cedis, he will receive additional three hundred Ghana cedis as interest annually (assuming the interest rate is 30%).

That is how evangelism (soul-winning) works. More souls attract higher treasures in heaven (new heaven). Delivering a soul from the prison of hell through evangelism is one of the most outstanding seeds you can sow in heaven.

God desires that sinners repent and follow the Holy Spirit. Preaching the good news of Christ Jesus can deliver people from eternal doom (destruction). Preach Christ Jesus. Let people know Christ Jesus through your lifestyle.

Let people know what Jesus has done for you. The Holy Spirit will convict sinners when you preach and teach the Word. They will turn to Christ Jesus. If you are in a college, study ahead. Gather the students and teach them the courses.

During the lecture, preach the Word (Christ Jesus) to them. Don’t let the devil bombard you with evil thoughts. Sometimes you may feel useless while doing evangelism. Some people may abuse you in the course of evangelism.

Become a “fool” for Christ Jesus. Preach the Word with passion and wisdom. There are several ways of doing evangelism. Freely download and read my books on my blog, forty effective evangelism strategies; all things work together for good to them that love God, and a soul is a soul for more profound revelations.

Remember, evangelism without soul-winning is incomplete. After preaching the Word, let them pray the prayer of salvation to affirm their deliverance. If you follow this master key, your treasure in heaven will be great.


2. Follow up and encourage the souls

People need encouragement and love. After winning souls into the kingdom of God, collect their contact addresses. Call and encourage them. Occasionally send them messages if they are far from you.

Occasionally visit them if they are close to you or within your neighborhood. However, apply wisdom. Don’t visit a lady alone in her room if you are a man. If you are a woman, don’t visit a male alone in his room.

Encourage people in an open area. I mean places people can easily see both of you. The Lord has recently told me to visit people in prisons and deprived areas. However, inadequate resources are limiting me.

If you have the resources, visit hospitals, prisons, and villages. Encourage them from your heart. Empower them with the promises of the Word. You will be surprised that people desperately need love and encouragement. Your treasures in heaven increase when you follow up on souls and build them in the Lord.


3. Fasting and prayers

Fasting and prayers can sometimes be burdensome. However, with God’s grace, we can do it. Earnestly praying for people builds our treasures in heaven. When we fast and pray for people from our hearts, the angels get building materials to furnish our mansions. It is time to engage in fasting and prayers. If you cannot fast consistently, intercede. Pray more in the Spirit. The more you intercede earnestly and consistently, the greater your treasures in heaven (the new earth).


4. Offerings and Tithes

Giving from your heart to build God’s kingdom is one of the most remarkable ways to acquire divine treasures. When you pay your tithes, God opens the door of blessings. When you donate to ministries and servants of God doing the kingdom work, the angels of God expand your mansion (treasures).

It is time to donate to God’s kingdom. Give from your heart. Pay your tithe from your heart. Do it with faith and joy. When you give your best to the Lord and his servants, your treasures will be greater (meditate on Luke 6:38, Malachi 3:10-12).


5. Financial assistance to people in need

This is similar to offerings and tithes. However, there is a slight difference. Giving to needy people, especially widows, those in orphanages, prisons, hospitals, and deprived areas, can boost your divine treasure. When you give to people experiencing poverty, the angels of God will get adequate materials to build your treasure (meditate on Matthew 6:4-6).


6. Overcoming temptations and trials

Do you know that temptations are channels of blessings? Temptations come in three ways. The devil can tempt you. You can tempt yourself. God can try you. God’s trial may be categorized as temptation.

However, it is not a temptation. If you overcome temptation and trials, you receive a treasure. Like Abraham, he passed the test when God tried him with Isaac. Joseph passed the test when he refused Potiphar’s wife's offer (temptation).

Joseph could have lost his glory if he had failed the test of Potiphar’s wife. Job, for instance, passed the devil's test and received treasures. If you can pass the test and temptations of life, God will release your treasures. Pass the test of temptations. Your treasures in heaven will increase.


7. Holiness lifestyle

Living in holiness is oneof the  hidden treasures in God's Kingdom. You enter the realm of holiness when you exclude yourself from the world's corruption and avail yourself as a living sacrifice unto God and the church.

Departing from willful sin and living in the light of the Word opens doors of blessings (treasures). You might not see the blessings. However, it’s real. If you love righteousness and hate iniquity, the Holy Spirit sows’ blessings in your life (meditate on Hebrews 1:9).

The angels of God will encamp around you when you live in fear of the Lord (see Psalm 34:7). For more profound revelations, freely download and read my book on m blog on my blog, the mysteries of fear, all things work together for good, how to become a perfect Christian, and a series of books for more profound revelations.

Remember, effective evangelism, offering, tithes, giving the poor, fasting and prayers, righteousness, holiness, follow-up on souls, intercession, financial assistance, and purity of life are the pathway to eternal treasures. I will write in detail in the next article. Kindly share the link to this article so others can grow in wisdom. You can connect with my series of videos for more profound revelations.
