You may or may not be aware that Jesus told His followers: 'Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.' It's recorded in Matthew 6:19.  

Things we can invest in here on Earth are very temporary. Jesus wants us thinking about "meaningful treasures" that will last for ETERNITY ... because we sure ARE going to live for eternity: It's just a matter of WHERE.  

God wants us spending it with Him, so He can shower us with unending joy and love (unconditional acceptance that we all long for) - forever and ever.

To God, PEOPLE are His greatest treasures. His angels in heaven with Him are His treasures as well, but they haven't fallen from grace. The human race HAS. Through the disobedience against God that Adam and Eve committed against Him, through their spiritual DNA, all their offspring are born with their disobedient nature to God ... right down to you and I. 

Thus the Bible declares we EACH are born -- through no fault of our own -- with an inherent nature to disobey - rebel (sin) against God.

For instance: No one has to teach us to lie. It's the easiest thing in the world to do, isn't it? At the youngest age, we lie when we think it is convenient to do so. In God's morale law for the human race, He has commanded us to NOT lie (bear false witness - same thing). WHY? Because He never intended the human race to be liars. Lying came into the human race after Adam and Eve sinned against God from Satan's LYING to them! 

We might not fully realize how offensive Satan's lie was to God at that moment, but the way Satan caused Eve to be so easily tempted to eat of the forbidden fruit was to TWIST the words God spoke to them. It made God look like HE was the liar! If YOU were God, how would that make YOU feel?

Nothing has changed since that time. Satan has deceived the whole human race by brainwashing people with his lies that Jesus cannot be trusted and/or the New Testament Holy Bible cannot be trusted: Meaning the Truth that Jesus spoke of in the New Testament Bible cannot be trusted. 

Jesus was born to suffer and die for each of us, so that our sins will not be held against us on the Judgment Day. Satan says, 'You CAN'T trust that! You KNOW that's a bunch of religious bullc*%p! Besides, what an insult it is for someone to say you're a SINNER and you need to be SAVED from your sins against God and others! Just a bunch of religious crap to mess with your brain and you KNOW it! Don't listen to it!'

So goes the battle between Jesus Christ and Satan: Good and evil. The spiritual battle for human souls. Jesus wants you and I to be saved from our sins, and Satan DOESN'T want you saved from your sins. Satan will NEVER be forgiven for his sins and he'll suffer for them eternally. Because he has to suffer for them, he wants everyone else suffering with him as well. That's the name of sin. 'If I can't have it, I don't want anyone else getting it EITHER!' That's called selfishness. God calls selfishness sin. It's against God's pure holy nature and the nature of his holy angels. God is NOT going to have selfishness reigning in heaven with Him EVER AGAIN like He once had long ago when Satan and a third of the angels that decided to support Satan at that time became so selfish that they rebelled against God's fully trustworthy authority and rule. 

And this is where you and I come in. God has given you and I the opportunity to help rescue lost souls from having to spend eternity in hell suffering with Satan and the fallen angels for their sins. This process of being used of God to help rescue lost souls is called 'laying up for yourselves [ourselves] treasures in heaven.'

A rescued lost soul to the Creator of that lost soul is more precious to the Creator of that lost soul than anything else we can imagine. The Bible clearly states that Jesus Himself created ALL things. Not just some things. ALL things. That means He created every human being.  (Of course, God the Father and God the Holy Spirit worked together with Jesus in the process: One person of the Godhead doesn't do anything that is not in agreement with the other Two).

And to demonstrate how much His heart was broken in what Satan accomplished through Adam and Eve's fall, God had a plan to UNDUE the devastation of sin that every human will be punished for on the Judgment Day and sentenced accordingly for them, God the Father allowed (assigned?) Jesus to come to earth to give humanity HIS plan of escape from having to suffer for our sins. That totally selfless, incomprehensible love PLAN of God is called The Good News Of The Gospel Of Jesus Christ. Here it is in condensed form: JESUS DID IT!  

The Holy Spirit has been prompting me so strongly to help make Christian believers aware that they can be laying up for themselves treasures in heaven most EVERY DAY of their life down here by simply placing this JESUS DID IT! flyer where people can find it. 

This 8.5 x 11 inch GOD'S GOOD NEWS flyer can be copied and reproduced by OTHER Christians to put out into the highways and byways so easily. Yet if someone doesn't get a copy of the flyer to them, they don't know about it, right?

Most Christians struggle with witnessing to the unsaved - at least to strangers. This JESUS DID IT! flyer eliminates that fear. All a Christian has to do is place the flyer where a lost soul can find it. 

I've had lower back issues for several years so it's been difficult for me to stand for very long. Yet that doesn't keep me from getting these JESUS DID IT! flyers in front of lost souls. I fold the flyers up and toss them on the ground at the base of mail boxes while driving my car slowly. Most people walking out to get their mail will see the folded flyer and immediately wonder if it was supposed to go into their mail box, and to make certain they aren't missing out on something they were suppose to be alerted to ' they read the flyer. 

Dedicating 1 hour (or more) a week to 'JESUS DID IT! flyer flipping' enables me to cover many, many streets in a city or houses out in the country. (Though I drive to different cities and spend hours flipping the flyers during summer months. It thrills me so much to know that God is pleased with my spiritual planting and watering - witnessing efforts).

'You're LITTERING! Bad witness!' Satan screams. If I toss out $50 bills anywhere I am, think anyone will mind me 'littering'?

The Good News Of The Gospel of Jesus Christ means more to GOD than an ocean of $50 bills. Gazillions of $50 bills will NOT save a person's lost soul. Only the Truth of what Jesus accomplished for them for suffering and dying in THEIR place on the cross, taking their punishment for their sins - and their grabbing hold of that priceless love sacrifice and treasuring its value beyond any other priceless treasure God could give is going to save them both now and most importantly - on the Judgment Day ... where it will be determined WHERE they spend eternity.  Heaven or hell.

So, please allow me to strongly encourage you to print up copies from either of these two links below to begin to start laying up treasures for yourselves in heaven in one of the most effortless yet productive and rewarding means of doing so: 'JESUS DID IT! flyer flipping'.

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. You can even have that assurance RIGHT NOW! Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake. 

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.


JESUS DID IT! and...


Remember:  All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-20 is our assurance)
