I have commented on this military command of Christ Before-It bears repeating---
As I see the parables-I see them linked to agriculture (land-property)-money $$- and military (warfare) --
Gen.MacArthur comes to mind as a perfect commander of an OCCUPATION--
Christ commanded us to OCCUPY the ground HE WON:Are we Christians doing it?:
Jesus gave a direct command--
"Occupy til I come" ...Lk. 19-KJV:
I regard it as a military command --to HOLD the Ground Won-Christ won the high ground-HE commanded us to hold it...He also gave us the Full Armor Eph. 6---to do it....
The GROUND being ALL aspects of society---the arts-business-agriculture-EDUCATION...et.al.
Does that mean we FORCE our Faith on anyone -NO!:NO!: NO!:
BTW - God Himself put on the Full Armor- Is. 59---asking- (I paraphrase) "What are you doing about the shedding of innocent blood and unjust judges?"
I hope He does not have to wrest the Full Armor from us because of our inaction!
