The billion gold pieces Book

Many years ago when I came to repentance and joined a small church, the people told me to read the Bible.  I duly bought a Bible and began to read.  When I think back it would have greatly shortened my learning curve if they told me what a precious book the Bible is.  The Book itself tells us about its worth,    

‘The Law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.’  Psalm 119:72

That statement caused me to think long and deep because we all know how much gold is worth.  However I also realised it is not only about my love for Scripture and faith in God.  If I don’t persevere and overcome, I might miss those promised thousands of pieces of silver and gold.  God revealed,

‘He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white.  I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and His angels.’  Revelation 3:5

John also reported that the billions of dollars (or whatever currency) begins when he,

“…heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them.  They will be His people [those whose names are written in the Book of Life] and God Himself will be with them and be their God.’  Revelation 21:3

Just think, the New Jerusalem will be a cube with dimensions of 2,200 kilometres or 1,400 miles, 

‘…and the city [is] of pure gold, as pure as glass.’  Revelation 21:18b

That is big money and it is up for grabs for anyone who is interested.  The generosity of our great God is marvellous and His miraculous book reveals it all.  Wow!

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?
