Heaven is NOT a place on Earth
Build not your treasure there
For the world is wickedness and suffering
Drug addiction and hunger
Human trafficking and treachery
Indefensible greed and gluttony
Rape and destruction
The flesh seeks pleasure and possessions like slavery
Pleasure sells, because the weak buy the lie and forsake GOD
The Kingdom of man romanticizes the loveliness of it’s trappings and indulgences
Cloaking it glamorously for all the world to see and admire
Your home is not here
Do not grow attached to a glorified notion that betrays your sense of reality
There is no Corona beach
There is no psychedelic pleasure dome
There is no free love
There is no worldly wealth
There is no glass of wine on a picnic blanket
And the Clydesdale Horses only eat hay
There is no romantic getaway
There are no idealistic escapes from reality
Reality must be confronted
With all the toil and trials
GOD shows mercy
Know joy in the face of difficulty
Know his grace in the journey
Reality is Jesus
Reality is salvation
Reality is eternal life.
Jesus does not take us out of this World
But he gives us the power to live in the world
And yet, to not be of the world
If we will follow him faithfully
The Kingdom of Man can take on a heavenly glow
It can be deceiving in its beauty
Lucifer is a beautiful but fallen angel
Do not succumb to his beguiling and seductive charm
The Kingdom of GOD is your home
Place all of your treasure in Heaven.

Matthew 6:19-21

King James Version (KJV)

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

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