Wonder why I'm sharing on this area? I was invited to stay with a friend on the weekend and we talked about our Sunday School Lesson. I shared my notes with her & in the mean time I looked at some of her books and magazines and noticed some things that I begin to ponder on.
Now understand that I have no Seminary/Theological teaching/training, but read and study the Scriptures for yourselves.
Ezekiel 7 ... Israel's final desolation. Mournful repentance of those who escape. Under the type of a chain is shewed their miserable captivity. The enemies defile the sanctuary because of the Israelites' abomination.
Matthew 6:19 ... Our treasure. Where our treasure is to be laid.
Ezekiel 7:19 ... They shall cast their ... silver ... in the streets, and their ... gold ... shall be removed (for a separation, or uncleanness); their ...silver(Proverbs/Mishle 11:4/Zephaniah 1:18) and their ... gold,... shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock (Ezekiel 44:12; 14:3,4) of their iniquity.

Matthew 6:19-21 ... Lay (Proverbs/Mishle 23:4; I Timothy 6:17; Hebrews 13:5; James 5:1) not up for yourselves treasures upon earth where moth & rust doth corrupt, & where thieves break through & steal: ... But lay (Matthew 19:21; Luke 12:33,34; I Timothy 6:19; I Peter 1:4) up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, & where thieves do not break through nor steal: ... For where your treasure is, there will you heart be also.
