A treasure map is a map that marks the location of buried treasure, a lost mine, A VALUABLE SECRET or a hidden locale.

 

The treasure map may serve several purposes as a plot device in works of fiction, and why not non-fiction such as life itself:

 

This being the definition of a treasure map, could not the bible be a treasure map in its own sense? Does it not contain valuable secrets on how to get to heaven and everlasting life? Is there not, clues on how to live, how to avoid certain conflicts?

 

John 14:6
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

 

This verse would be a good starting point. For this to make since to some, we must know why Jesus came to be here on earth as man, as God, as the holy spirit. We must start in the old testament, at the beginning of creation, the fall of man and what happens when you disobey God. God gave instructions on how to live and when that did not work he destroyed the lives of man and animals except for an old man who was a drunk, a righteous man according to God. He and his wife, their 3 sons and their wives plus a male and a female of all the animals were put in the ark before the great flood.

 

From this point on you will find God using people in various stages of their lives, brought on not by their choices alone, but choices of others, that crossed their life be it family, friends or enemy. He used them for his purpose not theirs and in his time.

 

I am going to stop here and hopefully give you something to think about. “Think outside the box”, see what is going on around you, who or what is in your life that is causing you pain and despair. I will bet, you have an “Empty Heart”. The devil has snuck in without you realizing it happened. One of the ways to help prevent this from happening, is read something in the bible daily and ask God to reveal to you, what he wants you to get out of the scripture. There is a clue, you must want it to be revealed and accept the answer given, even though it may not be the answer desired.

 

Matt 7:7-8
7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

 

When you do this with humility, sincerity, persistence, and with a proper spirit, God will show his answer in his time, his way, for your betterment.

 

IN THE MEAN TIME KEEP LOOKING FOR THE CLUES IN GOD’S WORD.

 

May CHRIST Reign Through You
"Keep JESUS in your heart"
