The wise servant (Matthew 24:45-51) | back
45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Are you a wise and faithful servant of the Lord? He gives us "meat" to feed the children, day by day, not just milk. Were talking of strong truth in God's Word. Something of substance that you can hold on to and not be deceived.
46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Blessings to those who are doing the work of the Lord at His return. Not flying away, but those who remain in the field. Remember the "woe" of verse 19, those giving suck and nursing along the works of Satan.
47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. Christ will put the faithful ones in charge of everything He owns. (This is nearing the millennium).
48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; But, if you are biblically illiterate and evil, and say to yourself that Christ won't be coming for a while.
49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; If you begin oppressing your fellow servants, just partying and getting drunk. Giving and taking with nephilim; verse 38. Because of deception. Even God will send strong delusion, to believe a lie on people like this. (II Thessalonians 2:11) There is no sin or shame in being biblically illiterate, but it is a sin to stay that way. Study God's Word.
50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of. Thinks he is already here, but it is the false Christ.
51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. He will say; I never knew you! Those deceived will be sent off to judgment with the hypocrites. And yes, there will be a lot of weeping in that day. Do not be deceived!
