“For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. … But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. … But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents,” Matthew 25:14-15, 18, 26-28, NKJV.
“My child, the call has gone out for those who have ears to hear My call to rise up in Me, to stand their ground against the darkness, and to use the spiritual weapons I have given to them to defeat the dark one and his minions.
I call you to look again at the parable of the talents.
Those who received the deposit of their king and used it for HIS business were commended and given great honor by their KING.
But the wicked and lazy servant who received the deposit and hid it in the ground was rebuked and the deposit he had hidden was given to the one who had the greatest return.
My child, this parable talks about the KINGDOM. The deposit of the KINGDOM Seed is planted in your triune being at the new birth.
Every child of God then has a duty to a higher calling to participate in the nurturing and growth of the KINGDOM Seed within them.
Each is given the same Seed but according to the individual’s response not all achieve the same level of KINGDOM growth.
It is sad to report that many have been given the false impression that spiritual growth stops at receiving the deposit of the KINGDOM at the new birth.
They are told to just hold onto Me and wait it all out. They are told about the great power of the dark one and are actually given the impression that they fight a losing battle with disease, depression, and other evil things because the dark one is ruler of the kingdom of the power of the air.
Alas, this all discounts the great inheritance I have provided for every child of God through the work of the Cross and My Resurrection from the dead.
That is why I have sent out the spiritual heralds to cry out to those who will listen to rise up, take up arms, and to come openly into the warfare that has been raging in the heavenlies.
The alarm has been sounded. Do not bury your association with Me. Do not hide from the darkness. Come into the LIGHT where the darkness has no hold on you.
The LORD called the servant (one who calls himself Christian) lazy for neglecting the great deposit of the KINGDOM Seed. The call to labor with the LORD and to act at HIS directions will produce great fruit and multiply the rewards of obedience to the loyal-hearted ones who have ears to hear and obey.
Do not hide the LIGHT of HIS presence that you carry in your earthen vessel under a basket. Allow HIM to have total access to do the work HE has commissioned you to do.
Then when the KING comes to you HE will add to your rewards and give you an even greater deposit to do greater works.
Consider these words and take them into your heart and meditate on them. Ask Me and I will reveal the deep things that have hindered you.
I will reveal what you are doing right and encourage you to continue in them. Ask for the living water to refresh your souls and to equip you for the days ahead. I will even tell you of the things that are coming.
When I plant the Seed of the KINGDOM of Light in a heart, I expect a harvest of KINGDOM fruit. You are My precious ones who are My trees of righteousness.
I delight in you and enjoy the fruit of your obedience. I love the smell of your leaves and I sing over you with songs of Love.
Do not fear my correcting hand. I love you too much to leave you in distress. I release My blessings over you and yours even now. Come; enjoy My company. All is well. Shalom.”
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven,” Matthew 5:14-16, NKJV.
