GOD IS LOOKING AT HIS PEOPLE OVER THE NEXT 6 MONTHS TO SEE HOW THEY ARE UTILIZING THEIR GIFTS AND TALENTS. THIS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL APRIL 2022.
GOD WILL DETERMINE WHO IS UTILIZING THE GIFTS HE GAVE THEM, AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL, THEY WILL BE GIVEN MORE. BUT TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN FAITHFUL, AND WHO HAVE NOT BEEN OBEDIENT TO WHAT GOD HAS ASKED THEM TO DO, EVEN THE GIFTS THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN WILL BE TAKEN AWAY AND ADDED TO ANOTHER.
BISHOP HAMON SAID IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO UTILIZE THE GIFT OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES. 90% OF THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT DO NOT EXERCISE THIS GIFT ON A REGULAR BASIS.
GOD IS LOOKING FOR US TO BE GOOD STEWARDS OF THE GIFTS HE HAS GIVEN US, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN ONLY ONE TALENT, WE NEED TO USE IT FOR THE KINGDOM.
Matthew 25:14-30/New King James Version
The Parable of the Talents
14 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. 15 And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.16 Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. 17 And likewise he who had received two gained two more also.18 But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
20 “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ 21 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ 22 He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ 23 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
24 “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’
