Before the scamdemic hit, this writer shared what the Lord impressed upon him over New Years 2019-2020. What was it the Lord shared over new year 2019-2020? Focus on your talents. Why are we discussing that today? The Spirit of the Lord has been impressing on the heart of this writer that same exact message all year long but here recently there has been a renewed emphasis on it.
We need to focus. There are a million and one distractions in the world right now with the demoncrats trying to steal the election, antifa burning down cities, black lives matter trying to indoctrinate us into their marxist ideology, the economy faltering and the list goes on and on. What does the Spirit of the Lord have to say about all this?
1. We do not have to obsess about all of this world's problems, that is His job and He knows how to do it alot better than we do
2. You want a solution to all this mess? Fine, here is a couple thousand year old solution right here:
“ ‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11Give us today our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one. ’
Our Father's will matters. If His will was being done on earth as it is in heaven we would not be facing the problems this world faces today.
Okay, with this said ^^ what is the Spirit of the Most High God emphasizing to this nobody who writes to you today? The more things spin out of control on earth, the more negative etc the more we need to tune it all out and tune into 1. Him and 2. our talents. What is it about our talents that is so important? We were put here in this season to do a job for the kingdom. Our job is to use the talents/gifts/abilities that have been deposited within us to serve the kingdom. Only you and the Lord know what you are really good at, what lights a little fire inside your heart when you think about it. You know that direction you should be headed in that maybe you have not been headed (maybe forever) but now the road system ahead of us is changing with the new world order launching their end game and thus our part in this grand play comes into clearer focus.
None of us knew a year ago that we would be living in a completely changed world one year later. We did not know but the Lord knew full well what was coming. He knew and He knows that part He predestined us to play in all this. We have gifts and abilities that were deposited within us before we left our mother's womb. There are things we specifically can do, and people we know, and situations we are (and will be) involved in that are very specific to us. Those specific situations call for our unique talents and abilities. Our talents are as diverse as the kingdom itself. Everything that is needed to run a world or a heavenly kingdom has been deposited within us as believers as we in turn are deposited "in Christ" as the Church.
Listen to what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the Churches:
14 For 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.
Your nobody brother who writes to you today has some talents and abilities that will take years to develop (and have been in development for years). The Lord God tells this servant its time to get busy preparing your "tool" for the work of the Master Craftsman. We are the tool, sitting in the toolbox and brought out at the time of the Master's choosing to do the particular work we are called and expected to do. Time to stop sitting on our hands and get to work. Tune out the world and its problems, we have work to do. The particulars of the work each of us has to do is between each of us and the Lord however the purpose of todays letter is to remind us that a "hammer" will be expected to do a hammers work. A screwdriver will be expected to do a screwdrivers work. Each of us is a different tool in the toolbox created to perform a different task. Let each of us be sure to be ready for our work when the Master pulls us out of the toolbox to do our job.
The parable of the "talents" is speaking to us today. The end of the parable was not pleasant for those who buried their talents. This servant is not hearing the Spirit of the Lord emphasize that negative outcome. The emphasis is on positive action. Its time to get so focused on our talents/abilities/work for the kingdom that this world and its problems become an afterthought.
It is easy to get depressed and anxious when one focuses on this world and its problems but that is not what we have been called to do. Yes, we are aware of all of it as we live in the midst of it every day. Our calling is on the solution side of the problems this world faces. This world would not be in its sorry state if we had all been doing the Lord will on earth just as it is in heaven. Guaranteed. So, its time to get busy once again not doing what the world does but what we have been called to do by our Father in heaven. Its time to focus on the higher calling, our very best selves possible. We should develop into razor sharp instruments in our Lord's hands that are fit for purpose.
The development of our gifts and talents taken to a razor sharp edge is part of the end game playing out around us. The enemy and his servants have a plan they are working out. The Lord God Almighty, all knowing and all powerful also has a plan and we are smack in the middle of that plan as His instruments on earth. All of this ^^ is also about finishing the game strong here on earth. Its about running the race to win. Its about working today with all of our might so some day down the road we have a positive outcome in the following situation:
2 Peter 1
3His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
5For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
10Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
This is getting long, enough for today you get the point. The Spirit of the Lord has been on this servant to get this posted, mission accomplished.
grace and peace
