While WLC continues to uphold the observance of the Seventh-Day Sabbath, which is at the heart of Yahuwah's moral law, the 10 Commandments, we no longer believe that the annual feast days are binding upon believers today. Still, though, we humbly encourage all to set time aside to commemorate the yearly feasts with solemnity and joy, and to learn from Yahuwah’s instructions concerning their observance under the Old Covenant. Doing so will surely be a blessing to you and your home, as you study the wonderful types and shadows that point to the exaltation of Messiah Yahushua as the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the conquering lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Lamb of Yahuwah that takes away the sins of the world.

Store the Inexhaustible Treasure and Credit in Heaven that will not Decay

The King James Version (KJV) is mostly used in these lessons. Click here to access the KJV online.

In Luke 12:22–34, Yahushua launches into an explanation that the disciples need to be dependent on Yahuwah who provides all things in the right manner for each person and not be anxious about material/earthly things.56 The disciples must place their belief and faith in Yahuwah first and foremost above all things. And it should be noted that Yahushua’s instruction to the disciples is not limited to those who are wealthy but also to those who are poor.57 Sin and impurity affect both the rich and poor alike, thus causing the need for repentance, a turning away from sin and a turning towards Yahuwah. Yahushua concludes his explanation with the following verses: “Sell your belongings and give alms (eleēmosynēn).

Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart (kardia) be.” Instead of building newer and bigger earthly barns for themselves to store up earthly treasures which have no real credit in the Kingdom of Yahuwah, the disciples are urged to store the inexhaustible treasure and credit in heaven that will not decay or be stolen in the moneybags of those who need alms, like the poor, the widows, and the orphans. And Yahushua’s final sentence in this explanation highlights the placement of one’s treasure and the placement of one’s heart, which indicates the center of one’s existence. Is one’s heart filled with the sin of greed and ultimately evil and impurity? Is one’s heart concerned with one’s own fruit? One’s own earthly treasures? Then one’s treasure is earthlybound and will not bear good fruit in what really matters – eternal life and heavenly treasure.58 If one’s heart is rich in Yahuwah, If one’s heart is filled with care for the poor59 Then one’s treasure is a heavenly inheritance that cannot be destroyed or stolen, and one’s treasure will bear good fruit. And with a heavenly treasury, one finds a purity of the heart that cannot be found in exterior things and that can only be found in a lasting faith in the mercy of Yahuwah. As Yahushua reminded his disciples: “Be merciful, just as [also] your Father is merciful” (Luke 6:36). The mercy one bestows on others is the measure of the mercy one will receive from Yahuwah.

This lesson was taken from a non-WLC article written by James W. Stroud (Journal of Moral Theology, Vol. 10, Special Issue 1 (2021): 84–103).

We have taken out from the original article all pagan names and titles of the Father and Son, and have replaced them with the original given names. Furthermore, we have restored in the Scriptures quoted the names of the Father and Son, as they were originally written by the inspired authors of the Bible. -WLC Team
