Amen Brothers and Sisters, so many points in today’s lection that are so important. “Occupy till I come” , “rule over My several cities”, “but those Mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring thither, and slay them before Me” (at His coming). These are the words of Jesus Christ our Lord, King of Kings, who will have His absolute rule, on the day of reckoning, and every knee will bow and every tounge will confess His sovereignty and that He Himself is YAHWEH God. Get involved with the orthodox church, the way of victory www.OrthodoxChurch.nl , lection readings for next month are soon to be posted. Best to get them and print them out so your readings are ready for the morning and evening Divine Services times of YAHWEH. Pray with us for all His people (who are also participating in His church assemblies). For the rest I advise to quickly get participating with His people in the weekly COMMANDED / NON-OPTIONAL corporate assemblies, rather than stay absolutely aiding and abetting His enemies. At least do so before His coming, the day of reckoning which we all look forward to who love Him and follow His wonderful and good laws, as the best way to live. – ++ Abp Dr Stephen Michael, OCC
The English Orthodox lection for today (Saturday) Sabbath Morning , June 30th, 2018 Luke 19.11-27
“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.
He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.
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.
Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.
And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.
And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:
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.
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:
Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.
(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
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.
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.”
