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.

Collect Treasures in Heaven

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

Yahushua goes on in Matthew 6:19 through 21 - don't collect for yourselves treasures on the earth where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal but collect for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Moths and rust stand for natural things that happen to destroy or ruin our possessions. Thieves refer to sinful actions that take possessions away and there's no getting away from it. Any treasure that you have right now on this earth can either be destroyed or stolen.

This text here says not to collect treasures upon the earth but rather collect treasures in heaven. Now if we only took this text by itself then we probably would teach that we shouldn't have anything. We don't just read one text and ignore everything else that the bible says. Many people are imbalanced in what they believe because they only take one set of scriptures and ignore the rest. We come to a balanced and proper understanding in doctrine and practice by looking at everything the scripture has to say. We know that righteous people in the bible had great possessions. For instance, Job in the Old testament, he had houses, lands, thousands of sheep, children - he was blessed.

Solomon was blessed with riches by Yahuwah himself. As a matter of fact Yahuwah asked him - what do you want what should i give you - and he said, wisdom to rule this great people Israel. Yahuwah said - that's a good answer and because you ask for wisdom, I'm going to give you wisdom and great riches. Solomon was a very wealthy man and he went astray towards the end of his life. He wasn't wicked just because he was wealthy.

"A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just." (Proverbs 13:22)

This text says that a good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children. We should leave a spiritual upbringing to our children and our grandchildren. We should teach them to follow Yahuwah but the verse in Proverbs is talking about material inheritance not spiritual. The reason is because the next part of the verse says that the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous. Wealth of the sinner is not spiritual. The wealth of the sinner is material. So the inheritance that a good man leaves to his children and his grandchildren is a material inheritance. Speaking of a man who works hard he has something to show for his hard work and when he's gone his children and grandchildren still benefit from his hard work and his wise investments. So we balance all of this together and we arrive at what we're going to believe.

This lesson was taken from a non-WLC video by Matthew Janzen: Matthew 6:16-21 "Fasting and Heavenly Treasure"
