Proverbs 3:10 (b) These barns represent the blessings that accumulate to GOD's people both for time and for eternity if they walk with GOD and give to Him all that He should have. It is the same truth as "lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven."
Joel 1:17 (c) We believe that this word indicates that GOD's curse will be upon His people for their disobedience, and no blessings will accumulate to their credit. Too many of GOD's dear people have empty barns.
Matthew 13:30 (c) This is symbolical of Heaven where the Lord takes His own saved ones who are here described as wheat.
Luke 12:18 (c) These barns represent selfish interests and activities for personal gain. This man thought that the barns were his barns and the grain was his grain, and that the increase belonged to him. He said, "Thou hast much goods laid up for many years." He was a fool in GOD's sight. So is everyone who lays up treasures for himself and is not rich toward GOD.
