Luke 19: 11 – 13
end of the world prophecy by Harold Camping
this is not a new concept as people have been wondering about the end of the world since Jesus was walking the earth.
Luke 19: 11 – 13 While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. He said: “A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return. So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. ‘Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.
A mina is about 3 months wages
John 4: 35, 36 Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. 36 Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.
When Jesus mentioned this, it was months before the harvest.
We have to be able to see the harvest through eyes of faith.
Many times we end up confused about what God is doing in our midst just like the disciples when some Greeks came up to them asking to see Jesus (John 12: 20 – 22)
We can only see Jesus by being born again John 3: 3
Luke 19: 16 I invested your money and made ten times the original amount. Well done. You are a good servant. You have been faithful with the little I entrusted to you so you will be governor of ten cities as your reward.
Key Point: Reward is not rest, but more responsibility
We need the power of the Holy Spirit to be God’s witnesses
