I saw Jesus standing in line behind others who were lined up before a booth that said INVESTMENTS on a sign over it. It was a place where transactions were made on an individual basis and you stood at to talk to the booth teller. I watched and wondered what Jesus was doing there. He was smiling as He patiently waited His turn, and He was watching the ones ahead of him as well. I walked up to Him and asked Him, “Lord, what are you here for?” He said, “I am investing.” He saw my blank expression and laughed at me, and then said, “Look at the people in front of me here. Men invest in the things that they deem to be important or of value to them. Everything in their thinking, has a value according to it’s use and it’s function. The more that it is useful, the more value they put on it, and the more they seek it. But what they invest in here is of little importance for they only seek the things of the earth. So their investments will only produce more of what they already desire, and it will only have earthly value.”
I said, “Lord, what are you investing in?” He smiled and took My hand and said, “I am investing in the Faithfulness of My People, and of My Father.” I was stunned. He again laughed at me, and squeezed my hand. “Yes”, He said, “Everything in My Kingdom has earthly and eternal value. I invest in those things that stand forever, and that produce My Likeness within and without. For instance, if you have eyes to see, then I can already be seen everywhere in the earth. My Glory is in the earth, and every where that I am, I will be both seen and be known. I invest in the things that bring forth My Reality, and also My Fruitfulness in the earth. I have come to inspect the fruit of the earth, I am coming to inspect the fruit of what has been planted there. My Glory is unfolding more everyday, and as I am moving in your midst I am looking for fruitfulness. I am investing in the fruitfulness of My People, and the Fruitfulness that I am particularly highlighting here is faithfulness. For without faithfulness nothing would be accomplished in heaven or in the earth. I am here to get a return on what I have patiently invested in. I have patiently waited for My Harvest to be ready, and now I am here to receive it.”
“The first that I will receive is the fruit of your faithfulness to Me. It is also the first that I will also invest My Glory and Honor into. That which resembles Me, and has been cultivated in Me, has the most value to My Kingdom. That which resembles the world and its ways, or mere men, has no place in My Kingdom, nor value in where I am taking My People in the years ahead. I am here to invest in them, to cause them to increase in value and fruitfulness. I am also here to reward those who have been laboring unseen and unhonored among men, for such is My Kingdom. Everything that has been done in My Name, and also done unto Me, has eternal value and is weightier than all of the things upon the earth combined. It is time for the transactions of Heaven to be dispersed upon the earth, and for the transactions that were sown unto Me in Heaven to now be rewarded upon the faithful ones on the earth. I know each one that has given from the heart, who has sown without guile, and who has been content in their placements that I have set them in. Every season has it’s invests and it’s corresponding tests. You are in a new season, and I am investing in the faithfulness of My People for the years ahead, to bring forth the full measure of the fruit of the earth unto Me. You have also ended a season, and all that have been faithful in that season, I have come to redeem that investment that I made in them, and to now reward them openly.”
“Good Fathers invest in their children everything that the are and have, to see that they succeed, and also lead a fruitful life. So do I. I sowed My Life into My Children, and I gave everything to them to both succeed in this life and in the next, and also that which I gave them will also cause them to bear fruit in this life and in My Kingdom. The Father is concerned about that which has been given, has been done, and about that which remains yet. So I am here to initiate the process of the Cycle of Transference and to reward those who have labored in My Father’s House wisely. I am investing in the value that I have formed within the Faithful, and those who are faithful shall not only reap in this life, but also shall stand till the end. Many have grown weary in well doing and have not remained faithful in their promises, in their commitments, in their commissions and in their various assignments, so their rewards shall be few in the days ahead. But those who have done that which I asked and put before them, shall eat to their full of My Treasury Bread.”
“I entreat you when I do come [to you] that I may not [be driven to such] boldness as I intend to show toward those few who suspect us of acting according to the flesh [on the low level of worldly motives and as if invested with only human powers]” 2 Corinthians 10:2.
“The commandant replied, I purchased this citizenship [as a capital investment] for a big price. Paul said, But I was born [Roman]!” Acts 22:28.
“Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come. 14 For it is like a man who was about to take a long journey, and he called his servants together and entrusted them with his property. 15 To one he gave five talents [probably about $5,000], to another two, to another one—to each in proportion to his own personal ability. Then he departed and left the country. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he gained five talents more. 17 And likewise he who had received the two talents—he also gained two talents more . 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came and brought him five more, saying, Master, you entrusted to me five talents; see, here I have gained five talents more. 21 His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys. 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, Master, you entrusted two talents to me; here I have gained two talents more. 23 His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys. 24 He who had received one talent also came forward, saying, Master, I knew you to be a harsh and hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you had not winnowed [the grain]. 25 So I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is your own. 26 But his master answered him, You wicked and lazy and idle servant! Did you indeed know that I reap where I have not sowed and gather [grain] where I have not winnowed? 27 Then you should have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent away from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.“ Matthew 25:13-28.
“That they might set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but might keep His commandments. 8 And might not be as their fathers — a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that set not their hearts aright nor prepared their hearts to know God, and whose spirits were not steadfast and faithful to God“ Psalms 78:7.
“But when you give to charity, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 So that your deeds of charity may be in secret; and your Father Who sees in secret will reward you openly. 5 Also when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by people. Truly I tell you, they have their reward in full already” Matthew 6:3.
“For they themselves volunteer testimony concerning us, telling what an entrance we had among you, and how you turned to God from [your] idols to serve a God Who is alive and true and genuine, 10 And [how you] look forward to and await the coming of His Son from heaven, Whom He raised from the dead — Jesus, Who personally rescues and delivers us out of and from the wrath [bringing punishment] which is coming [upon the impenitent] and draws us to Himself [investing us with all the privileges and rewards of the new life in Christ, the Messiah]” 1 Thessalonians 1:9.
“You will show Your faithfulness and perform the sure promise to Jacob and loving-kindness and mercy to Abraham, as You have sworn to our fathers from the days of old“ Micah 7:20.
“But Christ (the Messiah) was faithful over His [own Father’s] house as a Son [and Master of it]. And it is we who are [now members] of this house, if we hold fast and firm to the end our joyful and exultant confidence and sense of triumph in our hope [in Christ]“ Hebrews 3:6.
“For when He was invested with honor and glory from God the Father and a voice was borne to Him by the [splendid] Majestic Glory [in the bright cloud that overshadowed Him, saying], This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased and delight“ 2 Peter 1:17.
“To the saints (the consecrated people of God) and believing and faithful brethren in Christ who are at Colossae: Grace (spiritual favor and blessing) to you and [heart] peace from God our Father“ Colossians 1:2.
