OCCUPY IN THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED  (Spoken Word of Knowledge)

He said therefore, a certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. (Lk. 19:12-13)

As we embark on yet another trip around the sun for 2024, the Church body is called to Occupy until we leave this planet or until the Lord comes. We are called to put on the mind of Christ; to obediently heed His Word in scripture and through the Holy Spirit; to speak words of life and perform works based on faith. Consider that even resting in the finished works of Christ is the greatest work of faith!  It is all part of helping to advance the Kingdom of GOD until the Lord returns to stake His claim on this planet.  In the process, we are being dynamically transformed into His image from glory to glory! (2 Cor. 3:18) Praise GOD and thank you Lord for this awesome Word this morning!

Affiliated Verses:

In Thought: Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind (with the aid of the Holy Spirit and Scriptures) that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Rom. 12:2)

In Word: For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth. (1 Pet. 2:21-22)

In Word: Death and life are in the power of the tongue: And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Prov. 18:21)

In Deed: Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. (James 2:17-18)

Be encouraged and inspired today in knowing that only you can occupy or accomplish what has been assigned to you in your own special and unique sphere of influence. Even despite limitations and restrictions and the duress of these latter days; think about how colorful, joyful and beautiful life is and would be if Believers en mass occupied and fulfilled their godly purposes. At the risk of glossing this message up, it can admittedly be difficult to envision the world this way considering different factors and the state of this fallen planet. Very difficult. But often these difficulties can be blessings in disguise for it is in these times that the faithful grow the most in the stature of Christ…in Thought, Word and Deed. (Eph. 4:13) (I sense this message is for someone today…)

Keep the Faith. Occupy and be blessed. Suzanne ❤ +
