Dead Man's Chest



Within the treasure chest that everyman has there's many earthly
things that he possesses.
Things like gold, silver, coins, a house, fame, recognition, family and friends.
But is he really happy, is he at peace, Does he have peace?
Within the chest of every man there is a need.

A need to know God.

But mans heart that's within his chest has a nature that turns inward leaving him to believe God is distant and does not care or has any love for him. His conscience is closed to the things of God as the result of that nature and the wrongs that have been committed by that nature.
God knew in order to open mans heart and change that nature he had to help man realized that man was loved by Him and that the wrongs man had committed in that nature could be removed.
So What did God do?


He sent His Son Jesus Christ to earth to prove to all forever in His wisdom that man could accept he was loved by Him and that through His Son's death on the cross man can have the penalty for His sins, wrongs, removed by turning from His old nature, a changed mind, towards God and having faith in what Jesus did by calling on Jesus as his Lord because he arose from the dead.

Thus one no longer need listen to the old nature of doubt and no assurance but now can listen to His Spirit to  have a real eternal peace in the here and now because a relationship is formed within the heart of that mans chest.
One can be as what Jesus said, "Justified" in what He shared in Luke18:13 
"And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much his eyes unto heaven, but smote his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner."
Jesus words for one seeking born again answers John 3:5-8
Jesus answered, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit."


Let the Lord's truth in your heart.

    this is a great spiritual web site. I have to admit, when I first met you, I thought this site was about sea stories, pirates, and lost treasure. Although I'm not really up on this sort of blog writing. I found your site was very well developed. Great Job! on Dead Man's Chest
