In Luke 19:9, Jesus spoke to Zacchaeus and said… In Luke 19:9, Jesus spoke to Zacchaeus and said…

16 11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

17 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this [man] to reign over us. 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this [man] to reign over us.

18 15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

19 17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities. 17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

20 20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, [here is] thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin: 21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. 20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, [here is] thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin: 21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

21 22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, [thou] wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury? 22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, [thou] wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

22 24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give [it] to him that hath ten pounds. 25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him. 24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give [it] to him that hath ten pounds. 25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

23 27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay [them] before me. 28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.

25 “In the light of God's word, there must be a decided change in the attitude and character of his chosen people, or they will never obtain the overcomer's reward. In their present state of spiritual inefficiency, they could never fight the good fight of faith as successful soldiers of Jesus Christ. “In the light of God's word, there must be a decided change in the attitude and character of his chosen people, or they will never obtain the overcomer's reward.

26 “While the great enemy of God and his people is wide awake, earnest, and untiring in his efforts to ensnare, where are the men and women who are qualifying themselves to meet and expose his arts and deceptions? Every man, every woman, and every youth is under obligation to work for the strengthening and up-building of the cause of Christ; but would not a “While the great enemy of God and his people is wide awake, earnest, and untiring in his efforts to ensnare, where are the men and women who are qualifying themselves to meet and expose his arts and deceptions? Every man, every woman, and every youth is under obligation to work for the strengthening and up-building of the cause of Christ; but would not a

27 large number of his professed people, in their present condition, be pronounced slothful servants? Brethren, you do not exercise skill, diligence, and devotion in the cause of your Master. After having received the richest gifts of heaven, you are content to give but little in return. Do not entertain complacent feelings in view of the talents which have been

28 intrusted to you. God will prove you; and when he finds you are selfishly absorbed in your own plans and interests, he will take these talents away from you, and give them to those who have wrought unselfishly in his service. A day of reckoning is drawing on, when the rewards will be given to the faithful traders with their Lord's goods; but these true servants take no

29 credit to themselves; they give their Lord all the glory. "Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds." There could have been no gain without the deposit, no interest without the principal. The pound was committed to the faithful servant, and he has gained besides it, or through its help, other pounds also. He does not feel that he has done more than his duty.

30 The capital was advanced to him, and if he has been enabled to trade successfully with it, his Lord alone shall have the glory. When brethren render to God a small portion of their time, money, or intellect, which are all his own, they are inclined to feel well pleased with themselves, and to think that they have placed the Lord under obligation to them.

31 But why should Brn. Whitney, Smith, Brown, Haskell, or any of these ministers, give all their powers to the service of God, and bear burdens in his cause, and the hundreds of believers go free, carrying no responsibility of the work? Has God given these brethren faculties different from yours? No, my brethren and sisters; you have the very same reasoning powers that they

32 possess, but you have allowed your farm or business to absorb all your time and energies. There is work for all in the cause of God. The church in your own neighborhood requires care. Men of thought and self-denial are needed,-- men who will work to keep up the interests of the church, even if their own worldly affairs suffer. possess, but you have allowed your farm or business to absorb all your time and energies. There is work for all in the cause of God. The church in your own neighborhood requires care. Men of thought and self-denial are needed,-- men who will work to keep up the interests of the church, even if their own worldly affairs suffer.

33 You will give your thought and care to that cause whose prosperity you prize most highly. If it is your farm, your trade, or your business, then this will be first considered. But a day of reckoning is surely coming, when a full and minute account will have to be rendered as to how you have employed your God-given abilities. (Review and Herald October 28, 1884 par ) You will give your thought and care to that cause whose prosperity you prize most highly. If it is your farm, your trade, or your business, then this will be first considered.

44 What did Jesus say to His disciples before He revealed to them the signs of His coming in the last days? What did Jesus say to His disciples before He revealed to them the signs of His coming in the last days? In Matthew 24:3, it is written, saying, 3 “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” In Matthew 24:3, it is written, saying, 3 “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”

46 Notice what Paul said in his 2 nd letter to the church of Thessalonica. Notice what Paul said in his 2 nd letter to the church of Thessalonica. In 2 Thessalonians 2:3, it is written, saying, 3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” In 2 Thessalonians 2:3, it is written, saying, 3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition”

49 Notice again what was revealed through His servant Ellen G White. Notice again what was revealed through His servant Ellen G White. She said, “…there must be a decided change in the attitude and character of his Chosen people, or they will never obtain the overcomer's reward. In their present state of spiritual inefficiency, they could never fight the good fight of faith as successful soldiers of Jesus Christ.” She said, “…there must be a decided change in the attitude and character of his Chosen people, or they will never obtain the overcomer's reward. In their present state of spiritual inefficiency, they could never fight the good fight of faith as successful soldiers of Jesus Christ.”

50 With that statement, She also said that, “While the great enemy of God and his people is wide awake, earnest, and untiring in his efforts to ensnare, where are the men and women who are qualifying themselves to meet and expose his arts and deceptions? “While the great enemy of God and his people is wide awake, earnest, and untiring in his efforts to ensnare, where are the men and women who are qualifying themselves to meet and expose his arts and deceptions?

51 It was stated by Jesus and Paul that the people of God were to take heed and to let no man deceive them. It was stated by Jesus and Paul that the people of God were to take heed and to let no man deceive them. But if they were spiritually inefficient to fight the good fight of faith, in strengthening and up-building the cause of Christ, then with the untiring efforts to ensnare the people of God, the great enemy of God would use his arts of deception to deceive God’s people. But if they were spiritually inefficient to fight the good fight of faith, in strengthening and up-building the cause of Christ, then with the untiring efforts to ensnare the people of God, the great enemy of God would use his arts of deception to deceive God’s people.

52 In using his talents in the cause of Christ, John wrote and testified to expose the enemy, saying… In using his talents in the cause of Christ, John wrote and testified to expose the enemy, saying… "...the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9). "...the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9).

53 He also wrote in exposing the enemy, and those, whom he deceived into working with him in his cause, saying… "...I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole "...I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

54 world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Revelation 16:13,14) world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Revelation 16:13,14) It was for this reason that I answered the call, to help meet and expose the deceptions of the enemy, to make use of The Lord’s talents in me, to help my brothers and sisters, friends and family to overcome the enemy in fighting the good fight of faith.

55 But many of my friends and family could not see by faith to receive The Value of what GOD was revealing to us through HIS Word. But many of my friends and family could not see by faith to receive The Value of what GOD was revealing to us through HIS Word. For “…without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). For “…without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

56 And this is the battle of the enemy, to cause us to lose our reward by our lack of faith in The Word of God. And this is the battle of the enemy, to cause us to lose our reward by our lack of faith in The Word of God. Through His servant John, The Word said, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

57 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

58 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:

59 if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 3:13-22).

60 Notice that before the church of Laodicea fell away from The Faith, Notice that before the church of Laodicea fell away from The Faith, …they became spiritually inefficient, to see that they were using The Lord’s Treasure to trade with the enemy. …they became spiritually inefficient, to see that they were using The Lord’s Treasure to trade with the enemy. occupy until He comes Ascension2 nd Coming Signs of the day of reckoning Falling away first Spiritual inefficiency Not to be deceived

61 They traded The Treasures of Christ, Who made them rich, for the treasures of the enemy, who made them poor. They traded The White Raiment of Christ, Who covered their nakedness, for the covering of the enemy, who cause their nakedness to be seen. They traded The Spiritual Eyes of Christ, Who made them to see, for the enemy’s eyes, who made them blind.

62 Do we not know that The Lord rebukes us, because He Loves us? Do we not know that The Lord rebukes us, because He Loves us? And do we have an ear to hear what The Spirit says unto the churches that we might enter in and sup with Him, and He with us? And do we have an ear to hear what The Spirit says unto the churches that we might enter in and sup with Him, and He with us? In the parable of the ten virgins, who fell asleep waiting for the coming of The Groom, What made the five wise and the other five foolish? In the parable of the ten virgins, who fell asleep waiting for the coming of The Groom, What made the five wise and the other five foolish?

63 If we were required to give an answer to the question, as to what the enemy used to deceive the whole world; would we have in us The Treasures of Christ, to be competent enough to meet and expose the enemy’s deceptions? Have we anointed our Eyes by The Gift of Faith in Christ, to overcome our blindness to see and receive The Truth of GOD by HIS Word? Have we anointed our Eyes by The Gift of Faith in Christ, to overcome our blindness to see and receive The Truth of GOD by HIS Word?

64 Notice what Paul said in his 2 nd letter to the church at Corinth. Notice what Paul said in his 2 nd letter to the church at Corinth. Being enriched of Him, Who gave him all utterance, Paul said, “...seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. Being enriched of Him, Who gave him all utterance, Paul said, “...seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

65 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake” (2 Corinthians 4:1-5). But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake” (2 Corinthians 4:1-5).

66 Are we among those, who have received mercy from The Lord that we faint not? Are we among those, who have received mercy from The Lord that we faint not? Are we trimming the hidden things of dishonesty from our lamps, to walk not in craftiness, or to handle The Word of God deceitfully? Are we trimming the hidden things of dishonesty from our lamps, to walk not in craftiness, or to handle The Word of God deceitfully? Are we manifesting The Light of Truth in us, to shine in commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God? Are we manifesting The Light of Truth in us, to shine in commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God?

67 If we are not, then let us repent, for Jesus left His throne at The Father’s side in heaven, and came to earth and sacrificed His Life to save you and me through The Light of His gospel. If we are not, then let us repent, for Jesus left His throne at The Father’s side in heaven, and came to earth and sacrificed His Life to save you and me through The Light of His gospel.
