Scripture: Luke 19:24-27
“And he said unto those who stood by, ‘Take from him the pound, and give it to him who has ten minas.’ But they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas.’ ‘For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.’” Is this the Jesus that most of our pastors have preached? Bring them here, says Jesus and kill them in front of me. What an application! Have people in church been so deceived that they think it is daytime when it is actually the middle of the night? How did the majority of the church get so ineffective and docile that God had to step in and say, bring here those enemies of mine and slay them? How did the church miss Christ, the mighty One? This is the One we need to know! We need to take Him at His Word and ponder His might and see if action is needed on our part… because it is!
