“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” Matthew 6:19-21.
“Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun,” Ecclesiastes 8:15.
“And so you come towards the end of the year once again. What things have you learned from living in this year?
For time is always moving on; the things you learned yesterday have application for today, and yet there are new things to learn today.
Learn to put aside grievances with one another.
Learn to forgive, for in doing so, you also are freed from bitterness and anger.
The days spread out before you. Enjoy the time that you have with family and friends, for as the years move forward those times will be treasured most.
Learn to walk as wise men making the most of your time, because the days are evil. When all is said and done, do your best to enjoy the life that has been given to you.
The world longs to acquire more and more, for its desire is the belly and riches. But if you set your hearts and minds upon things above then you will not be consumed with these things.
Set not yourself as one who would argue about insignificant things, for there are many quarrels that many of you get into in this hour.
For you are divided one against one another, and the enemy uses these tools for his disposal. And yet you must hold onto the truth, for deceitful speech is so prevalent among many of you.”

Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to the LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
