A “treasure hunt” is prophetic evangelisation led by the Holy Spirit.
Every treasure hunter prepares themselves at home for the next treasure hunt by praying and asking God for words of knowledge. That means the treasure hunter asks God in a very specific way which person (treasure) HE wants to bless on this day, where this person could be found, how to recognize him or her (clothes or other indicators) and what this person is concerned about. Then all these indicators will be written down on a so-called treasure map and will be brought along to the treasure hunt. At the meeting point we form groups of three to four people who show each other what they have written on their treasure maps. After that we go to the places we wrote on our maps and find the treasures. In these encounters we have wonderful conversations, experience exciting things and moves of God in practical ways.
Here is the treasure map that you absolutely need:
Treasure hunting is biblical!
Two examples of treasure hunters in the New Testament:
Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place.
27 And he rose and went. And there was an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship
28 and was returning, seated in his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah.
29 And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.”
30 So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?”
31 And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.
32 Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this: “Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth.
33 In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken away from the earth.”
34 And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?”
35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus.
Acts 8, 26-35
Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.”
11 And the Lord said to him, “Rise and go to the street called Straight, and at the house of Judas look for a man of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying,
12 and he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias come in and lay his hands on him so that he might regain his sight.”
So Ananias departed and entered the house. And laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus who appeared to you on the road by which you came has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
18 And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized;
