Occupy until I come
What is your assignment?
And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
I had been driving along asking the Lord what to do about predicted floods and missile attacks on our coastlines, on the way to some personal business.
I then went on to conduct the business, and started home.
I was listening, and singing along to some worship music, when He answered:
“Occupy ‘til I come.”
Instead of being told to flee to a place, He told me to stay where I was, and defend it.
Many people feel they are to flee during a coming time of trouble, but I was told to stay where I was at.
I guess there will be a different work for those who need to flee, from those who are told to stay.
In the military, there are those in the front lines, and those in the rear guard.
There are different assignments.
Occupation has several elements (the military can contribute more here):
1. Be well armed, have armor on
2. Move in
3. Entrench – dig in and establish self
4. Resist, fight, and disable the enemy for the ground
5. Move in even closer
Until Jesus returns, we are to occupy this earth, and keep his kingdom established, through fighting evil, and uplifting holiness.
The Lord has given us blessings, property and other things.
The devil is here to steal, kill and destroy.
It is our job to make sure the devil fails.
I pray I am ready, and able, to do all I can for the Lord, and my fellow believers, in these last days.
The location does not matter, if I am in His will.
Put your armor on, be well armed with the Word of God.
Submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Fight to keep what God has given you.
