FAITHFULNESS TO OPPORTUNI
Luke 19:11-27-July 26.
"Well done, thou good and faithful servant;
thou haut bien faithful over a few things,
J will maka thee ruler over many things;
enter thou into thc joy of thy Lord."
m io nro not to confound the
Atti Parable of thc rounds with
thc l'arable of the Talents, j
They teach totally different j
tessons. lu tho case of the talents, the
amount given each servant Offered.
In the case of the pounds, the amount
was the same. This parable, there
fore, deals with something common to
all thc class referred to.
Jesus and His disciples were ap
proaching Jerusalem, wheri* shortly He
was to he cruel lied. The disciples, on
the contrary, supposed that the Messi
anic Kingdom would immediately be
established. This parable was Intend
ed to Inform them that a long time
would first elapse.
The kings of Palestine were appoint
ed by the Roman Emperor. One of the
Herods had recently gone to Rome,
seeking appointment to a kingdom.
Some who hated him sent n message
to Rome, declaring their preference for
another king. Jesus seized upon this
circumstance as illustrating His own
case. He was the Appointee for the
Messianic Kingdom; but Ile would go
to Heaven, and there the Heavenly
Fnther, Emperor of the Universe,
would invest Him with authority.
Later He would return to earth and
exercise dominion. This is exactly the
presentation of prophecy.-Psalm 2:8
"Occupy Till I Como."
During the Master's absence In
Heaven, Ho has committed to His dla
clples, His servants, one pound each
with full liberty to use their best Judg
ment In His service. At His return,
will be reckoned
with, and re
warded In pro
portion to their
zeal and effi
tween these con
of God and the
world. It shows
that nothing ls "Occupy Until I Come.'
committed to the masses, and that no
judgment, reward, ls made in their
case at the Master's return. Only His
servants will be held responsible for
either reward or punishment in respect
to their faithfulness.
In considering what ls signified ?>;.
the .pound, we .must keep \n mgm .Q
that the ?ulfl?Wnt must show * o i ~<
blessing or responsibility given nllkv.
to all of God's consecra ted 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
of these varied talents belong to this
i'arable of the Pounds.
The pound represents justification.
The one thing which the Redeemer
?loos for all Ills followers ls to Justify
them freely from all things, leaving
them on exactly an equal footing; for
justifient ion 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 L?rd, as
a basis for this relationship, the pound
-free forgiveness of sins-justification.
Because they are thus alike qualified,
tho results will show the degree of
loving zeal controlling each servanL
As in the parable one servant gained
ten pounds, so such noble characters
as SL Peter. St. John and others count
ed all earthly things as loss and dross,
that they might be pleasing to their
Master, the coming King. These, and
such as these, who have gladly spent
themselves in .the Lord's service, will
have the highest rewards. The servant
who reported a gain of five pounds rep
resents n class who will receive a less
influential place in thc Kingdom.
"Tho8o Mino Enemies-Slay Them."
The servant who hid Iiis pound repre
sents those who have entered into a
covenant with the Lord to he His serv
ants, who lia ve received Justification at
His hands, but who have not compiled
with their agree
ment to sacrifice
self tn Ills serv
ice. This class
is represented by
the foolish vir
gins, who failed
to enter In to the
will fail to be
come members of
tile Bride classy
Not until He
The Unfaithful tStetcard. shall have dealt
with His servants nt Illa Second Com
ing will Messiah begin to deal with the
world, and especially Ills enemies.
This statement is borne out by numer
ous Scriptures. The work of the Gos
pel Age is merely for the selection and
testing of His servants, to determine
willed will be found worthy of associa
tion with nimself In the Kingdom.
At first thought we might gather
that verse 27 signifies that the King of
Glory will he Implacable, ferocious, un
sympathetic, with Ills enemies. A pic
ture of tills carnage is given in Reve
lation 10:15. where He ls represented
In glorious majesty, with a sword pro
ceeding out of Ills mouth, that with it
ne should smite the nations. Blessed
smiting! This terrible carnage will
mean n great, blessing: for the Lord
smites to beal. Unless Ilia enemies be
thus brought Into subjection, nothing
ronni ins for them but extinction.-Acts
