The words of the Lord Jesus

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew chapter 6 verses 19-21

The Sermon on the Mount

In this series I’m outlining pure foundational truths about the Kingdom of Heaven, a spiritual kingdom.

The teachings of Jesus as found in the Sermon on the Mount, in the synoptic gospel of Matthew chapters 5 to 7, are part of the True Christian Gospel.

These amazing teachings of Jesus, recorded in the New Testament of the Holy Bible, are the anti-thesis of the Prosperity Gospel of American Prosperity Gospel so-called pastors and tele-evangelists such as Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Paula White, and Australians Brian Houston of Hillsong, Phil Pringle of C3 Church, and many other so-called Pentecostal churches throughout the world- who are not really Pentecostal churches at all but Mammon (Money) and Property-Seeking churches.

They have had their reward in full on this earth.

Lesson 21 from the Sermon on the Mount

The Sermon on the Mount is recorded in the gospel of Matthew chapters 5 to 7.

I’ve been to the gently sloping hill above Capernaum, near the shores of Lake Galilee in Northern Israel, where the Lord Jesus taught his disciples and the gathered large crowds and gave lessons about the true nature of the Kingdom of Heaven

Matthew 6 

New King James Version (NKJV)

Do Good to Please God

“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.

The Model Prayer

“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. ] And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.[c]

14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Fasting to Be Seen Only by God

16 “Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

The Lamp of the Body

22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

You Cannot Serve God and Riches

24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

1“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew chapter 6 verses 19-21

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth”

If you’re a regular readers of this site, you’ll recognise this concise profound instruction of the Lord Jesus cuts in half like Dagon in the temple of the Philistines, the Prosperity Gospel of Australian Prosperity Gospel pastors Brian Houston of Hillsong, Phil Pringle of C3 Church, Singaporean Prosperity Gospel pastors Kong Hee and Joseph Prince, Korean Prosperity Gospel pastor David (former Paul) Yonggi Cho, American Prosperity Gospel pastors and tele-evangelists Kenneth Copeland, Paula White and Benny Hinn and heretical Prosperity Gospel, Word of Faith and Hyper-Grace pastors.

The Prosperity Gospel is an anomaly to the Kingdom of Heaven, the teachings of Jesus and the whole New Testament.

We are seeing in our lifetime the crumbling and destruction of the Prosperity Gospel as its corrupted fruits are being revealed to the world.

David Yonggi Cho, a Prosperity Gospel pastor, who founded Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul South Korea and built it up to 750,000 members, has ended his life in disgrace. The membership has dropped substantially but it is still the largest single congregation in the world with 500,000 congregants. Yonggi Cho was convicted a few years ago of stealing millions of cash from the church. He had an affair with a Korean Opera singer and used church cash to buy her an apartment.

How the mighty have fallen.

God is exposing these Prosperity Gospel frauds to the world.

In the age of the internet, smart phones and telescopic cameras and video cameras, nothing can be hidden- nothing.

This is a fulfilment of Jesus’ prophecy about all the hidden evil deeds of mankind being shouted from the rooftops.

“Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.”

Luke 12:3

In context:

1 “In the meantime, when an innumerable multitude of people had gathered together, so that they trampled one another, He began to say to His disciples first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.”

Luke 12:1-3

Phil Pringle of C3 Church, which has over 1000 churches affiliated to it, is being shown up as a false prophet in the Kong Hee prison case. Phil Pringle was already a false prophet for making many false prophesies and preaching the heretical Prosperity Gospel.

The Kong Hee case is revealing Phil Pringle as the fraud and liar that he is.

An even bigger liar and fraud and an equally greedy man is Brian Houston of Hillsong. I’ve shown this on this site many times.

Bobbie Houston, Brian Houston’s wife, has been an accomplist, complicit and a beneficiary in all Brian Houston’s greed, scams, frauds, deceptions and crimes

Now Sydney, Australia and the world is waiting to see Brian Houston be charged for pedophile protection crimes- for sheltering and concealing his even corrupter father Frank Houston, a lifelong secret child rapist, from the New South Wales police.

Kong Hee a leading Singapore Prosperity Gospel so-called pastor, who built his church City Harvest Church Singapore to 25,000 members, is going to jail tomorrow for breaches of Singapore Charity laws, including embezzlement, false pretences, lying to authorities, multiple frauds and concealing his crimes from the Singapore authorities and police during a long investigation. The trial was the second longest in Singapore’s history. And it’s not over yet because the Singapore prosecution is appealing the second court decision.

Since the trial and dramas surrounding Kong Hee, City Harvest Church numbers have dropped to officially 16,000, but in reality possibly to 10,000.

Yet the faithful adherents of the City Harvest Church Singapore cult plug on blindly. As do the blinded adherents of the Hillsong cult, the C3 Money cult and all the other Properity Gospel cults. Doomed to eternity.

Benny Hinn and Paula White have been shown to be frauds by having an adulterous affair and then lying through their teeth about it. They got caught out red-handed in their love-nest in Rome.

Any cursory internet search about Kenneth Copeland will show what a greedy man he is- full of avarice.

There is no excess that seems to be too great for these leading Prosperity Gospel so-called pastors.
