What the Parable of the talents means when in Heaven, and why most Christians don't do this.
Summary: What the Parable of the talents means when in Heaven, and why most Christians don't do this.
Many of Christ's parables have been muddled up and the true meaning has not been put across. A lot of these are to do with money, as the church is more money orientated, yet what Christ was talking about in all parables is God. When he used references to money he was meaning talents, as in skills. I find it funny with this parable, how the words talents, the Bible dictionaries say a talent was a currency and that is what Christ was referring to.
Mat 25:14-30 for it is as if a man going abroad called his own servants and gave them his goods. (15) And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to each according to his ability. And he went abroad at once. (16) And going he who had received the five talents traded with them, and made another five talents. (17) And likewise he who had received two, he also gained another two. (18) But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the earth and hid his lord's silver. (19) After a long time the lord of those servants came and took account with them. (20) And so he who had received five talents came and brought another five talents, saying, Lord, you delivered five talents to me. Behold, I have gained five talents above them. (21) 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. (22) He also who had received two talents came and said, Lord, you delivered two talents to me. Behold, I have gained two other talents above 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) And he who had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew that you were a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter. (25) And I was afraid and went and hid your talent in the earth. Lo, you have yours. (26) His lord answered and said to him, Evil and slothful servant! You knew that I reaped where I did not sow, and gathered where I did not scatter, (27) then you should have put my money to the exchangers, and coming I would have received my own with interest. (28) Therefore take the talent from him and give it to him who has ten talents. (29) For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will abound. But from him who has not, even that which he has shall be taken away from him. (30) And throw the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
So what does this really mean, well if Christ was always talking about God in all he was saying! What are you given when you are born? Skills! Certain people have a natural skill at doing something's. So when you are given more then others it doesn't mean you have to invest your money, it means you have to invest in more skills. If you are born being able to speak more then one language, learn an extra three. If you find it easy to play musical instruments, learn as many as you can; and so on in what ever skills you can find.
These are the riches, you can take to heaven!
Mat 6:19-21 do not lay up treasures on earth for yourselves, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. (20) But lay up treasures in Heaven for yourselves, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. (21) For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
You see when and if you get to heaven, the talents you have learned and the skills you have acquired make you shine in heaven. Other angels wish to meet you and find out what all these things are and you spend time learning off each other, and seeing who the other person is. Floating around in a realm of pure love, yes God does know all things and you are fed by the holy spirit of God. Yet say you have someone; who was a wonderful musician, he can show another person how to do these things simply, by bonding with them. they understand all that the other has learned. Why is this so important? as the universe learns, all creatures learn, heaven learns. Heaven is infinite and knows all things already, yet skills and the creative side of a spirit knows no boundaries. Each person has something special to add to the collective whole, making it more radiant and vibrant.
Dan 12:3 and those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the sky; and those who turn many to righteousness shall shine as the stars forever and ever.
Yet again I have to tell Paul off, as him telling people to be simple in Christ, as such.
Col 2:3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Now this doesn't say be simple, yet this is what appears to have happened, as Paul has closed off the way to wisdom. You see if you follow what Christ actually said and the rest of the bible i.e.
Mat 6:33 but seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.
Then through God, all wisdom is possible, being simple in Christ is not following him. I see so many Christians, who have not used any of their given talents, and as for making more; they put it off and say maybe tomorrow. It is the same as the parable; they have buried them under the ground. So what will happen when they are judged? Many will say "we followed Jesus and believed you died for us, and that God committed murder for us so we are saved?"
If you read all of the articles I have written you would see how wrong this is, why?
1) You are saying God broke his own commandment by committing murder?
2) His name is not Jesus; it is Yeshua! In ancient Hebrew the language given by God; one is Good the other not.
3) Christ said "I require mercy and not sacrifice" and he was referring to the knowledge of God more then all your burnt offerings.
4) If you followed him you would do as he asked! Not follow the Pharisees! Seek God first! Use the talents and make more with them!
Sorry if this is telling you off, yet if you say you are a follower of Christ, these are some of the things you must do.
There are more people I have seen during my life, who I recognize from heaven, within the hippies/travelers then in the churches. Why? As many of these people are talented they learn new languages as they travel, if they meet someone who can do some new skill they will sit and learn about it. Many of them have left commercial society, as they are not interested in money. So instead of persecuting these people, see what they know, learn from them. I am not saying all are like this and all the church goers are the same, yet overall this is the case.
Life is to learn skills and help towards oneness, not to spend your time burying the talents you have until later and waiting till tomorrow and making money.
Don't do something as it earns well, do something because you enjoy it and you are good at it.
