Using what we have.

Do you know the story of the wealthy man who goes on a trip and leaves money to His servants to see what they will do with it....?
Matthew 25:21 - "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things."

Its amazing what we do with our God given talents. Do we use them? Do we even know what they are?
Some people think that they were giving less than others. Yes, this is true, but the whole moral of this story is "What did you do with what you were given?"

I have seen a video a few times now and every time I see this video, I cant help but fall into tears. I have attached it to this blog so you can download and view. I would title it "Perseverance", But it also serves as a brilliant example of a mindset that is often lacking and many people (myself included!)
(I am sorry about the quality - I think it was created for mobile!)

videoI think the point here is, if we look at this boy, that He has so much passion to "win race" and do what his dad has done and it is to get over the finish line.
He wasn't there to win, or to be first, but He accomplished the race with what little He had. In this case, He used his dad to help. Without his dad it would be impossible.
Same as without God, it would be impossible to reach the finish line.
Look at the delight in his eyes, how happy he is. Even though he may be handicapped, that wasn't a reason for him to sit back and mope about how bad life is.
They took the chance and made it.

God asks us to do the same. Do as much as we can with what we have. Instead of feeling jealous what someone else has and watch them, why not use your own resources, as much or as little as they could be to do something good, for man and for God.
I know that this video is a bit off track from the message in Matthew 25:21, but I see it from a perseverance perspective.
Even if times are hard, persevere to help others. The reason I write this is because I seriously lack in this department. Its very comfortable to sit back and glory in what I have, but what is the point if I don't use any of it to help others?

When I go to heaven one day, God will ask me what I did and who I helped. What will my answer be?
Even if we cant do something physically, we can use our mouth! We are told in Luke 10 to "Go Out" and spread the word of God, Heal the sick, help, console. Most often, this doesn't require money or goods, but it requires a faith in God and relationship with Jesus which we have the choice over. Knowing that God is with us, is pretty much all we need!

I hope this video touched your heart as it did mine.

Blessings

  1. the antichrist is the spirit of this world, the prince the power of the air. Revelation 16:13-14, Ephesians 2:2, Daniel 8:5, Revelation 13:18, 2 thessalonians 2:9-10, Acts 20:26-30. men preaching another gospel, another jesus. Matthew 24:24. WE are that generation that Christ saw at the mount of temptation. WE are that generation according to matthew chapter 24 when Christ told his disciples!

    2 Corinthians 11: 13-15! Satan is mindful of the things of man not of God. Isaiah 14:12-14, Luke 4:31-34- making buildings, people playing instruments with man's hands for worship, etc. revelation 18:22-23

    Revelation 16:17 and Revelation 11:15-18 the Lord and his Christ take over both worlds. the spirit and the natural world after revelation 11:11-13.the spirit world of the great city receives her hour of judgement! this brings in the last day and hour for all mankind and the earth!
    the testimonies of the two witnesses are received and those of revelation 15:2. the seventh shofar sounds to unseal the mystery of God. the seven angels with seven vials leave the temple after the judgment of the Great City, which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt.



    must watch and hear video on youtube titled, "Christ testimony of the churches -around the world." there are two identical Jesus Christ revelation 17:8.



    most of revelation is happening in the spirit world. that's why Jesus said it would be like the days of Noah and Lot. the abomination of desolation is happening in the spirit realm inside all these man made buildings set up for worship. the Christians and catholics, etc are not aware of what's happening to them and around them in these places, (churches -any four wall building representing God to gather believers of Christ). these churches around the world are all connected to "The Great City" Revelation 11, which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt and Mystery of iniquity. Church leaders around the world are searching of the earthly signs. this will not happen until the very last day and hour. God will not allow man to destroy the earth with nuclear bombs. read matthew 3:12 and Revelation 20:9. God sends his son to the earth with the fire behind him consuming all his enemies which are left from the resurrection of the dead and those that are alive. the body of Christ is gathered as the son of man appears at last sound of shofar, he is coming while the wheat are gathered and the tares are left as the chaff and earth is consumed by the fire of God.

    The true outpouring of the Holy Spirit of truth happens before the 5th shofar and 5th vial is poured. Revelation 7:3-4,13-14 Revelation 9:4! Joel 2:28-29-this happens in the homes of God's people and their family members (read Isaiah 26:20-21)! the people of God flee all man made churches, anything of the identical jesus christ movement. then Joel 2:30 which shows the aftermath of the sixth and fifth shofar sounds and fifth and sixth vial poured. then Joel 2:31-32 happens...

    what all revivals, signs and wonders happening in these churches, huge ministries around the world is revelation 16:14 and revelation 19:19-20
    this message is not a joke. this is not a game. I am telling the truth! God's people must come out of the identical jesus Christ movement NOW and seek God in prayer without ceasing and seek God's forgiveness and be washed in the blood of Jesus Christ!
