Stolen Treasures

Copyright (c) 2007-2017

Righteousness

All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24-25


Knowledge

Knowledge, it shall vanish away. 1 Corinthians 13:8

My words shall not pass away. Mark 13:31

If any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not. John 12:47

So then faith cometh by hearing. Romans 10:17


Wisdom

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. 1 Corinthians 3:19

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. Isaiah 55:8

Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. Proverbs 16:3


Prophecy

Prophecies, they shall fail. 1 Corinthians 13:8

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Revelation 19:10


Tongues

Tongues, they shall cease. 1 Corinthians 13:8

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16:17-18

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

The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10

    The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 1 John 2:17

    In previous eras, the nature of sacred marriage was connected with duty, or related to practical necessities.

    God's love as a healing presence in the world is growing stronger daily. Many people are not yet able to perceive this growing presence of light, because there also exists at this time a thick cloud of negative energy that is surrounding the Earth. This acts to obscure both the perception and the consciousness of people, and to create feelings of isolation and despair.

    Church Choir: A church within a church, made up of many of the church's finest leaders ... the most likely place where a majority will bond together in friendship and unity, as they bond with the Lord. In strengthening its members, the entire church is strengthened. And, as they become one in heart, soul, and purpose ... God has promised His Spirit indwelling. The entire direction of a church can be changed through its choir.

    When growing up, if there was a sibling dispute, mom had the perfect solution. She would refuse to choose. Instead, mom would bang our heads together.

    How many times have we had the urge to Lord it over someone fallen; to look at them in disgust, to shun their very presence, to talk behind their back, to refuse their service, to forget all the good they've done, to spit in their face and kick them when their down?

    In this day and time, it almost seems as if kindness, politeness, consideration, and most of the lessons we were taught as children were tossed out of the window one day and replaced with a new set of rules. Could it simply be that children these days are born with a defect, lacking self-control? Or are they just not being taught the way they should be taught; parents blaming modern day hardships and circumstances? It is true that the children being raised today will determine the shape of our future, but in the meantime, whose example are they following?
