FAITHFULNESS TO OPPORTUNI
Luke 19:11-27-July 26.
"Welt ilniu-. thou ijoml ami faithful Hcrvant;
thou hunt bern (nit li fut mer a few thing?,
I trill WM fro thee ruler ?cir tn M it y thiiuja;
rntir thou into the joy vf thy l.nrd." -
M II 11 hew S.i.2/.
''jr m ?' y, nro not to confound the
? M I l'anibli: of the rounds with
til?; l'arable or the Talents.
They tench totally dlfTerent
tessons. In tho case ol' the talents, the
amount given each servant ??ifi'crcd.
In the case ol' the pounds, the moonlit
was the saino. Thirs parable, there
fore, deals with something common to
all th?.* class referred to.
Jesus and His disciples were ap
proaching Jerusalem, where, shortly tte
was tu be crucified. Tho disciples, on
tho emil ra ry. supposed that the Mossl
iinie Kingdom would immediately be
established. This parable was intend
ed to inform them that a long time
would lirst elapse.
The kings ol' Palestine were appoint
ed by the Roman thu pero r. One of the
Herods had recently gone to Rome,
seeking appointment to a kingdom.
Some who hated him sent a message
to Rome, declaring their preference for
another king. Jesus seized upon tills
eircumstanec. as illustrating His own
case. He was the Appointee for the
Messianic Kingdom; but Ile would go
to Heaven, and there the Heavenly
Fa tiler. Kmperor of the Lui verse,
would invest Him with authority.
Later He would return to earth and
exorcise dominion. This ls exactly the
presenta lion of prophecy.-Psalm 2:8.
"Occupy Titi 1 Come."
During the Master's absence In
Heaven, Ile has committed to His dis
ciples, Ills servants, one pound each.
With full liberty to use their best Judg
ment in His service. At His return,
w 1 t ll,

tween those con

world. It shows
that nothing Ia "Occupy Vntil I Come."
committed to the masses, and that no
Judgment, reward, ls made In their
case at tile Master's return. Only Ills
servants will be held responsible for
either reward or punishment in respect
to til cir faithfulness.
In considering what is signified
the pound, we oust keep io mimi
that the ful Ii in "!.; must show * o~ .
blessing or responsibility given alb.
to all of Clod's consecrated people. We
can think of but one thing given alike
to this class. Their talents and oppor
tunities are very unlike-wealth, men
tal capacity, environment, etc. None
.if these varied talents belong to this
i 'arable of thc Pounds.
The pound represents justification.
The one tiling which tho Redeemer
does for all His followers is to justify
them freely from all things, leaving
(bom on exactly an equal footing; for
justification makes up to each in pro
portion as lie is short of perfection.
"Be Thou Faithful Unto Death."
All who now become Christ's fol
lowers must receive from the Lord, as
a basis for this relationship, the pound
-free forgiveness of sins-justification.
Re?anse they are thus alike qualified,
the results will show the degree of
loving zeal controlling each servant.
As lu the parable one servant gained
ten pounds, so such noble characters
as St. Peter. St. John and others count
ed nil earthly Illings as loss and dross,
that they might be pleasing to their
Master, the coining King. These, aud
such as these, who have gladly spent
themselves in tho Lord's service, will
have the highest rewards. The servant
who reported a gain of live pounds rep
resents a class win? will receive a less
I Inlluential place tu the Kingdom,
i "Tho=? Mine Enemies-Slay Them."
Tin? servant who hid his pound ivpre
I sonts those who have entered into a
? covenant wit li the Lord to be His sorv
' ants, who have received Justification nt
i His bands, but who have not complied
with their agree
ment tc? sacrifice
self in His serv
ice. This class
is represented by

Not until Ile

with His servants at His Second Com
; lng will Messiah begin to deal with the
j world, and especially His enemies,
j This statement is borne out by minier
, ons Scriptures. The work of the Cos
pel Age is merely for the selection and
testing of His servants, to determine
which ?ill be found worthy of nssocla
j lion willi Himself in the Kingdom
j At first thought we might gather
j (hat verse 27 signifies that Ibo King of
I dory will be implacable, ferocious, un
sympathetic, with His enemies. A plc
j turo of this carnage is given In Reve
lation 10:1.1. where Ile ls represented
1 In glorious majesty, with a sword pro
ceeding out of His mouth, that with it
He should smite the nations. Blessed
smiting! This terrible carnage will
mean a great blessing: for the Lord
smites to heal. Unless His enemies be
thus brought into subjection, nothing
remains for them hut extinction.-Acts
