If You Are Not Faithful in Another’s, Who will Give You Your Own?

In Luke 16 Christ said to His disciples: “There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods. 2 So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.’ 3 “Then the steward said within himself, ‘What shall I do? For my master is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. 4 I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, others may receive me into their houses.’ 5 “So he called every one of his master’s debtors to him, and said to the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ 6 And he said, ‘A hundred measures of oil.’ So he said to him, ‘Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’ Then he said to another, ‘And how much do you owe?’ And he said, ‘A hundred measures of wheat.’ And he said to him, ‘ take the bill and quickly right down 80’. So the master commended the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light (are in theirs). 9 “And I say to you (facetiously), make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you come to your end, your friends may receive you into an everlasting home. 10 Those who are faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and those who are unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.”

We have here in this parable of “The Steward” a person whose interest and focus is in the here and now! When they were challenged with the loss of their ability to enrich their life with payment on goods, they thought to fortify themselves and extend their ability for self sustenance and conducted short sales on the products that they still had that belonged to another. They did this liquidation of goods  to support themselves and in doing so they demonstrated that they had lost themselves already. Primarily because they lost sight of what belonged to whom and what was really their own. To this we say “In your patience possess your own soul” as your focus and not the fortification of your physical existence. That is just you fighting against the inevitable that blonds you from seeing the greater picture and purpose that we have “in Christ”.

To give you what is really yours in Gods eyes,has to do with your soul, and with Eternal life. And that steward fortified himself on earth to his own Eternal harm. You cannot keep anything of this life because none of it is Eternal.

Had they been faithful in that stewardship, they would’ve received what was their own is what that scripture said. That does seem rather peculiar on the surface, but when we put it in context with “scripture “, that being faithful in another’s to qualify to receive what is yours, has nothing to do with this age because scripture is given to make visible and understandable the invisible realities in the spirit, because if we acquire these things now, we get to keep them forever.  This is us getting to “keep what is our own” are the gifts we learn from scripture to apply now 

Here then is the interpretation and how you can apply this to yourself in the context of what was written and why. This is for your fullness and salvation. You began this by the one time event at baptism whereby you profess to bury your old self, to receive your new self imaged like Christ. Even baptism was a picture but your vows were real. Because if you associate baptism with the cross and the Old Covenant cross-over pictured at the Red Sea with Moses, you could understand that there is a starting point and a finishing point with God’s work in us as we cooperate with Him. We enter the promise land (the scriptures) to see what we have inherited to learn to own and to use. That we are being translated, transferred, in a transition and our transfiguration saying “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord (in scripture and), are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of God. That you work out your own salvation with fear and trembling“. And quit waiting for another act of God on your behalf because it is ALL right their. Showing us that cooperating in this way is your primary importance. This is your gift of Eternal life with God in the Spirit. Even as Christ told the woman at the well that “God is Spirit and truth, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” And such are we, at least that should be our focus and NOT to be fortifying ourselves here on earth as demonstrated with “The Unfaithful Steward”. For if you are not faithful with another’s, who will give you your own? The steward thought the important stuff was physical stuff, and if you vowed at baptism to consider your old person dead, to walk in newness of life”? Then it should be clear that the “who will give you what is your own” is what belongs to the new you on the north side of your baptism, without regrets or looking back.

Meaning that “to give you what is your own has to do with your portion of your inheritance given to you through “The New Will and Testament”. Like all Testaments, they are not in force until there is a death of a testator, and that’s what Christ did at the cross (cross over. Get it?) And He did that back then so that we could experience our inheritance NOW! And not like the ill  informed of those supposing a second coming gathering while they sit and wait for that event to happen all the while “The Kingdom Of God is still at hand”, open, active and operational, even as we speak. And that “as Gods divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, If you are able to read and understand this, that means this message is still relevant for you. If not, pray because “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to them. James 1.5 Meaning the doors are still open and that is how God helps you in your endeavor.

But the unlearned, the unknowing and the ignorant (ignorant, not that they are stupid but they willingly ignore these truths) that The Kingdom of God is at hand. They need to recognize that it takes a different mindset to receive what our Heavenly Father has for us and why the scripture says that “the violent take it by force“. Not that we are stealing, but we take the Father at His word in the face of the obstacles we call “giants in the land”. We do not insult the gift giver by being nonchalant or passive with our inheritance. We “reach out to attain to all the riches in Christ” while we have our mental faculties to do so. This is the age of the acquisition of the things of God.

Unlike the unfaithful steward. Instead of owning up to, applying and using “what is their own” as “Willed” to us through the New Testament that replaced the old, these ignorant sell themselves out for their old self by protecting its fears and fortifying themselves safely here on earth through the various providers therein, showing that their focus and investment is like the unwise steward. And if you are not faithful to your vows at baptism, to in turn fortify yourself with what the Father reveals to you in The Testament, then when the buzzer buzzes and time here is no more, and you take into account the things that you’ve acquired on the other side of the veil of understanding into Eternity and see there is none? It is because you sold yourself out on the wrong self because “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.” but the re-spirited mind of faith does.

This is the new you to receive the things that are your own in comparison to the unwise steward who as James put it “3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.

And as Paul put it that “you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who awards each one according to their works”. And when it comes time to what you have stored, did you store it up here as if you want to stay here? Well then you have your reward because that was your focus and your investment. So think of the widow who gave her last two coins. What does she look like on the other side? The answer is, something to envy. This is what truly matters.

We can glean this from James 5.1 Come now you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure for the last days. 4 Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. 5 You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter.

And here from Romans 2.4-7 And do you despise the riches of Gods goodness, forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that His goodness leads you to repentance? 5 But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart, you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6 who “will render to each one according to their deeds”: 7 eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good (defined as) seeking for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil. Like the unjust steward. Ouch!

So if you are NOT faithful with another’s, who will give you your own”, should put you in check. And if you are afraid of the end of the world in any of its assorted presentations as though you need to fight for and preserve yourself in this age? That you are a type of  your own“savior” by your forms of self preservation and forgetting His promises like, I will never leave you or forsake you), you may be serving your dead man that you should’ve left at the cross when you first believed, as was your vow at baptism. “To bury the old you with its mechanisms and preservations of self, to in turn (that’s what repentance means) be found “in Christ “ where all our riches are true.

For this you are a steward to give an account of on That Day! For each one of us, That Day is different. But for now?  The Kingdom of God is at hand!” Meaning, reachable, attainable and able to implement now. The is the Gospel. Amen! Please DO NOT leave from here empty handed!

The Kingdom of God is at hand!

**Sin of The Amorites, Guarding Your Tongue**

Sin of The AMORITE’S, Guarding Your Tongue. Knowing Your Enemies and the Tools To Subdue them.

Genesis 15.12 Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold a horror and great darkness fell upon him. 13 Then God said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is NOT theirs, and will serve them, and the strangers will afflict them four hundred years. 14 And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. 15 Now as for you Abram, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. 16 But in the fourth generation your offspring shall return here (to a horror and a great darkness), FOR THE INIQUITY OF THE AMORITE’S IS NOT YET COMPLETE.” 17 And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark (meaning there was no wide spread revelation in the land), that behold, there appeared a smoking oven (a judgment) and a burning torch that passed between those pieces (cut in half and offered as the sacrifice that represents the dividing of times). 18 On the same day God made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—

We read here a passage that is attached to the promise to Abram, that he would be the father of many nations and what to expect as the promise comes into fruition. That his progeny would digress (go down) for four generations. That they would become slaves in Egypt because “the sin of the AMORITE’S was not yet complete”. That after it is, they would be redeemed to enter the land of promise that for us pictures our life in the Spirit.

As we always say that scripture makes visible the invisible realities we find and rely on for our maturation, which is our purpose now “to attain to all the riches of God “in Christ”.

So we must ask ourselves, what does the sin of the AMORITE’S have to do with the seed of Abram that the seed should be subverted and lorded over in Egypt, because that is NOT a posture our Father gave to them or us. And why would Abrams offspring be bound to the sins of another called the Amorite’s? A just God would not judge one on behalf of another’s sins. The only time God sanctioned someone to pay for the sins of another, is when He sent His Only Begotten Son to pay for the sins of the world on the cross. (John 3.17) And that was because of their digression, they proved they couldn’t save themselves.

Our point here is to divert your attention to the reason Abram’s offspring (which means us too) would become slaves and why is it the AMORITE’S were to blame for Abrams seeds future failure?

Well because what scripture does, is it makes visible the invisible things to the naked eye, to put in picture form for instructive purposes only, for us to understand our inner workings because that is where our real enemies are and that’s what we are really accountable for first. And we know that we can’t really blame someone or something else for our shortcomings as if to change them to benefit our outcome. Like here with the Amorite’s because the changes must come from within us. To “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”. This is where the real Amorite’s exist as we shall demonstrate here.

God designed pictures and parables in His word for us to understand internal spiritual realities, and in this case what our invisible battle is. Which starts with our tongue connected to ignorant thinking. The Amorite’s represent something inside of us that we must battle. For “the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God” in our minds. Showing us that the real battles take place in our heads. This is our own “Galgatha” which means skull for the battle of the mind. Even as Romans 12 says to be “transfigured by the renewing of your mind.

(https://www.abarim-publications.com/Dictionary/a/a-m-r.html)     Amorite’s are the people of Amar and is defined here; אמר The very common verb אמר (‘amar) occurs all over the Sematic language spectrum and basically means to utter, say or tell (Genesis 3:1, Numbers 22:28, Psalm 40:10), command (to speak a thing into being) (Numbers 15:38, Joshua 11:9), promise (1 Chronicles 27:23, Esther 4:7). To this we can add confessions for cleansing and professing for renewals as our first responce.

The things that we say (amar) is what the imagery of the Amorite’s is to do for us. They make carnally understandable internal enemies we harbor within ourselves, masquerading as characteristics of ourselves that we’ve adopted to wear (like a fig leaf), when in reality they represent a false sense of security keeping us from our new selves given to us “in Christ” in the likeness of Christ with all our inner enemies deferred and Gods tools installed, intact and in their place. And that’s why these enemies need to be defeated because they keep us from our internal inheritance “in Christ” to be like Him, not referring to hair color height or weight. This is us “made in the image of God” as intended from the beginning. Are we not instructed to “put Christ on”? He is Adams replacement for our true form of being re-imaged to “that which is from the beginning”.

But before all this, Abrams seed (offspring) would become so entangled with a false self image in destitution, mumbling, grumbling, complaining and being lorded over. They were also accusing and excusing one another when God’s word says “let your yes be yes and your no mean no. For whatever is more than this is from the devil. So much so in fact that they would become an inversion of the gift from God according to godliness of “walking in the light as He is the light”. That is why there was a dark and a burning flame passed through the sacrifices two halves, (Genesis 15) to draw the distinction by way of contrasts (think of your hands side by side are the same but opposites, right and left, this is the picture). And it had to be really dark to be removed for the light to be extremely light to take over, hence the 400 years.

That is why the Amorite’s as a first enemy is about the way we talk because the core word of the name “Amorite” is the Hebrew word “amor” and “amar” and means to speak and say,  because “A perfect man is able to bridal their toungue“ (like a horse with a bit, bridal and reins) This means we have the same tools and features to learn to grow in, to properly use our words. Because “in the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God”.

THIS IS THE MAIN POINT WE ARE SAYING!

Since God said a thing and it was so, and He has gifted us with a self like His self, to do and be imaged like Him, then we have to be that careful as to what we say, and when to say it. Because if Christ spoke an insult to someone like ”hey stupid” they would be more than mad. They would literally be stupid. Remember Christ told the man “be whole” and the maimed arm became just as usable as the other and He healed the lepers, made the blind see and raised the dead and such.


And similarly, to murmur and complain (which was the chief sin in the wilderness) and wallow in your fallen nature DOES NOT produce change to build you up but your negativity brings you down. If you use your old Adamic tools of murmuring and complaining, accusing and blaming, that is self sabotage by building up your hatreds and fears by making a big deal out of things. That is your own fault, you are to blame when things don’t work out maybe you did that. And that is an example of “the sin of the Amorite’s.  You manifest your own negativity in this age, and when this age expires, you have to be done with all your manifestations of your faithlessness and negativity and it starts here. This is your training ground. And every time you grovel, over things, you engage with Satan. And when you answer him you resurrect him. You did that!. Didn’t Christ tell him “get behind me Satan for you are not mindful of the things of God but men” but then you argue with him anyway? The only reason Jesus said that was to show you how to be done with him. But He doesn’t need to defend Himself by engagement and neither do you. It is like ignoring a heckler. They writhe inside when they don’t upset you. But it’s there extreme joy when they do that feeds their persistence. You did that!

This is why Christ said “if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own?” Another mans is your old man, and what is your own is what God has new for you as you correct yourself in what you think and say. Then He reveals these things to you at the behest of the Holy Spirit as the new you,,,. That is after you’ve defeated your Amorite’s being your pre-manifest negative words welling up inside of yourself.

Like God told Cain “6“Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do NOT do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you MUST gain your mastery over it.”

In New Testament lingo, this is putting off the old man and putting on the new man in the image of Christ” because that is why we exploit Gods words. To unlock and to use as our new self like His.

Even as those at the walls of Jericho, they were cued to all follow in synchronicity with Joshua who said.  You shall not shout or make any noise with your voice, nor shall a word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I say to you, ‘Shout!’ Then you shall shout.” You know what happened when they all shouted together as one body. And we are “The Body of Christ” so we should make the connection to be in sync with our Head. To see what He sees and to say what He says. And “wherever two or more are gathered (collected and assembled) there I am in their midst”, were the words of Christ.  I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. What That our word is manifest like Gods. What a tremendous promise from the Father!!

For you see that the word (and the amor)  as our sword too and which realm we are to use it in. “12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give an account

So like when Peter wielded a sword and cut off an ear from a member of the Sanhedrin on Christ’s fateful night, Jesus told Peter to put his sword away because, that is the wrong kind of sword. We use not the sword but the s-word of the Spirit which is word, Gods word.

James also says ”

2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, they are a perfected person, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths for them to obey us, by which we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 In the same way the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 Likewise the tongue can be a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and is set on fire by hell. 7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 8 But no (common) man can tame their tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? [g]Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh.

God is concerned about our inward parts and the reason He showed this to Abram after he divided the sacrifices in half to show the side by side contrasts of carnal verses spirit, fear verses faith, right and left, up and down, falsehood verses truth. We hope you get this picture because that is all they are. The Amorite’s don’t need to be any more real than this, if you get the pictures and learn the lessons.

Gods word is our mirror for perspective for us to become godly. This is the correct use of scripture for our personal transfiguration, transformation and metamorphosis, from a ground bound looking down carnally queued creature following the events.

Even as the disciples were told when they asked Christ “shall we call fire down from Heaven” to smoke these guys? And Christ’s replied “you DON’T know not what manner of spirit you are”, confirming this lesson. He didn’t ask them “who gave you the authority to do that?” He just redirected them from the destructive element of what they wanted to do.

And from Ephesians 6.10-18  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle NOT against (the visible) flesh and blood, BUT against principalities, against powers, against the (invisible) rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which is the word of God: 

THAT IS HOW YOU DO IT!! These are your instruments of war.

Unlike those who went about unchanged thinking “My master is delaying his coming”. And that was quite likely because their sights were set on the carnally visual and wait for someone else to do something for them, like a second coming savior. They miss out on the changes we can make to ourselves now. This is our responsibility and duty during our pilgrimage here. For the time is coming when the ability to make these changes will disappear. Then the saying will come true that “11 Those who are unjust, let them be unjust still; those who are filthy, let them be filthy still; those who are righteous, let them be righteous still; those who are holy, let them be holy still..”

But for now there is time because “The Kingdom of God (is still) at hand! So please do not face your next obstacle without using these tools that have been presented to you today, lest you be found slothful, forgetful or just to busy.
