A Word of Encouragement

 Before the scamdemic started approximately one year ago the Lord impressed upon this servant our need to work on our "talents."  Now here we are almost one year later with the globalist satanic cabal trying to exterminate or enslave the majority of us.  What is the Spirit of the Lord's guidance for us going forward?  It has not changed from one year ago:

1.  2 Chron 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

What is so encouraging about this ^^?  The Lord hearing from heaven and bringing today's evil frenzy to a full stop is not dependent one iota on the globalist cabal and is 100% in the hands of the Body of Christ (us).

2.  The talents.  The fact that you and I are here today on this earth during this season is no accident.  It was the will of the Almighty in His infinite knowledge (knowing the future) and power that we are here in this season.  Why us?  Each one of us has been gifted with talents and abilities that are directly applicable and very much needed in this season.  What you are good at may not appear what is needed in this season but that is not for us to judge or question.  In the Almighty's foreknowledge our gifts were placed here on this earth to do what it is He would have us do for His kingdom.  

He is the General, we are the soldiers, He developed the plan it is our job to work it out with the talents given to us.  This servant asked the Lord "how are my gifts going to be employed when I see no or little apparent use for them in the world around me today."  The answer was "you develop the gifts to a razor's edge and I will use them how and when they are needed."  In other words things this servant is good at need to be ready because time and circumstance that we can not perceive at the moment will present themselves and we have to be ready to act when they do. 

We are tools in the Master Craftsman's toolbox.  Only He knows the exact details of how and when He is going to employ each tool in that toolbox.  A hammer may only be used for a small part of the overall work that is being completed and it may sit in the toolbox for a long period of time unused, but at the time and place in the work that a hammer is needed, the Master will reach into His toolbox and pull that hammer out to do its job.  When that time comes, the hammer needs to be ready to do its job.....

Whatever it is that you are good at, that sparks some kind of a fire in you is something you need to be ready to do when the Master calls your name.  Forget about the "how" and "when" musings, that is not our job.  Our job is to be ready when the time comes for us to be used.

The Parable of the Talents

Matt 25:14For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Glory to God
