Good afternoon! Grace and peace to you in abundance from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Today we are fearlessly discussing God's definition of treasures.
Isaiah 45v3 I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
We know we as mankind live in darkness from our own natural nature. We also know through Jesus Christ we will be tempted to still live in darkness but we have a different eye sight, and mind sight that enables to see differently when darkness tempts us to follow it. God forms the light and the darkness, He brings prosperity and He crates disaster for one purpose and that is to give us His treasures through His Son Jesus Christ which is in a hidden place deep within us. We find these hidden treasures only by beleiving in Him giving them to us. It is a walk of faith not creating ourselves to rely on ourselves to make us Holy. Our best is always a snare we fall into. He walks before us because we have faith in Him walking before us through His gift of Himself He has given us, we know He will level mountains through us, we know he will break down gates that get in our way, and we know He will cut through any sin that hinders our relationship in receiving more of Him growing in us. When we are tempted or in the dark we know the treasures of Himself He has given us! Praise be to God for His Son that enables us to live out our lives with His Hope, His love from the faith He gives us!!! He carries out the words of His servants and overthrows the learning of the wise. He fulfills the predictions of His messengers because they are His predictions and His will lived out in their lives. Those that believe in Him see darkness as a gift to receive more of His treasures of knowing Him more than before. His treasures in us never stop giving more of Himself and His power of righteousness growing within us for His glory of His name in who He is for us!! Jesus tells us to store up treasures that He gives us of Himself and not store up treasures of the world, ourselves and Satan that do nothing for us. The condition of our heart always determines our treasures and where they come from. What we see ourselves treasure is what we believe defines us. (Mathew 6v21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.)When we are in Jesus Christ because of the faith we have in Him being our Savior and Lord we will remain faithful to Him through our darkness because of what He gives us of Himself! Not from what we do for ourselves that we treasure for ourselves.Today how you are viewing your darkness determines if you have received His treasures of Himself. Are you receiving more treasures of Himself growing in you because you are blessed by Him in your darkness or are you deep in the natural spirit of despair and hopelessness crying with no end in sight? If you are receiving a view of hopelessness it is His time He has given you to turn to Him and receive His treasures of light in your darkness. Draw near to God now and forever and He will draw near to you now and forever. If you are experiencing spiritual darkness through suffering remember your internal relationship you have faith in with your Father He has given you. If you do not have faith in Him in this relationship because of other treasures in your heart you are holding on to receive the relationship now through His Son and truly experience the real treasures of Himself He gives you now! You will view all darkness you experience in a new and enlighten way!! All people will see His miracle of His treasures of Himself working in you and will turn to Him for their gift of Himself. He is our treasure! Read Isaiah 45, 46 and Mathew 6v19-34. I love all of you with the treasures He gives me for you!!!
