The obligation of production

  1. 1. THE OBLIGATION OF PRODUCTION Part-1 Mark 11:12-14
  2. 2. THE POINT GOD HAS PUT A GREAT POTENTIAL IN EVERY CREATURE. EVERYTHING THAT GOD HAS CREATED HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE. GOD HAS PUT IN EVERY CREATURE, THE CREATING POWER. GENESIS 1 REVEALS TO US THAT APART FROM THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND MAN THAT GOD HAD DIRECTLY CREATED, THE REST OF CREATION CAME FROM WHAT GOD HAD ALREADY CREATED. THOUGH EVERYTHING IS CREDITED AS BEING DIRECTLY CREATED BY GOD. THE READING OF GENESIS 1 SHOWS CLEARLY THAT SOME CREATURES CAME FROM FORMER CREATED THINGS AT THE COMMAND OF GOD. THE MESSAGE OF GOD IN THE ACCOUNT OF CREATION IS CLEAR. WHAT IS CREATED MUST CREATE. IT MUST PRODUCE. IT IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR THE LAND TO PRODUCE, IT IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR THE SEA TO PRODUCE, IT IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR TREES AND ANIMALS PRODUCED BY THE LAND TO PRODUCE. IT IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR MAN TO PRODUCE OTHER MEN. GOD CREATED WHATEVER HE CREATED SO THAT IT WILL CREATE. GOD SAVED WHOEVER HE SAVED SO THAT (S)HE WILL BEAR (PRODUCE) FRUIT. GOD HAS DECIDED TO MULTIPLY US AS INDIVIDUALS AND AS A CHURCH AND HE WILL DO THAT THROUGH YOU FOR YOURSELF AND THROUGH US FOR THE CHURCH. AMEN.
  3. 3. Mark 11:12-14 “12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.”
  4. 4. THE VISIBLE IMAGE OF THE INVIBLE GOD JESUS CAME ON EARTH TO REVEAL THE GLORY OF GOD. HE CAME TO MANIFEST IN HIS LIVING PERSONALITY THE FULL NATURE OF GOD THE FATHER. WE WILL REMEMBER THAT GOD IS THE EMBODIMENT OF LOVE AND THAT THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURES JESUS WAS JUST LOVE INCARNATED.
  5. 5. LOVE INCARNATED THE SUMMARY REPORT OF THE LIFE OF JESUS IN JESUS IS CLEAR AND SIMPLE IN JOHN 13: “It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.”
  6. 6. LOVE PROVED HE FED ALL WHO WERE HUNGRY HE HEALED ALL WHO WERE SICK HE DELIVERED ALL WHO WERE DEMON POSSESSED HE COMFORTED ALL WHO WERE IN PAIN HE FINALLY TOOK OUR SINS TO SAVE US FROM ETERNAL PUNISHMENT HE REFUSED TO JUDGE ANY OF US AND TO CONDEMN ANY OF US. HE SAID PLAINLY I CAME TO SAVE AND TO GIVE LIFE. ANY ONE WHO IS TIRED SHOULD JUST COME TO ME AND I WILL GIVE HIM RELIEF.
  7. 7. THE RARE MOMENTS OF ANGER WHEN PETER PREVENTED HIM TO GO THE JERUSALEM TO DIE.  WITH THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS FOR THEIR HYPOCRISIY WHEN THE TEMPLE OF GOD WAS TRANSFORMED INTO A MARKET PLACE AND THEN HERE WHEN THE TREE HAD NO FRUIT PRODUCED
  8. 8. THE VIOLENT REACTION OF JESUS JESUS WAS HUNGRY, HE WANTED FRUITS BUT THE TREE HAD NO FRUITS BECAUSE IT HAD NOT PRODUCED. MAYBE THE TREE HAD PRODUCED BEFORE BUT NOW!!! THE TREE HAD NO FRUIT PRODUCED FOR HIM THE CREATOR.
  9. 9. THE TIME OF PRODUCTION THE TIME OF PRODUCTION IS NOW! JESUS DID NOT CARE THAT THE TREE HAD PRODUCED BEFORE OR THAT HE IT WAS GOING TO PRODUCE. NOW! HE WANTED A FRUIT AND NOW! THERE WAS NO FRUIT. HE GOT ANGRY.
  10. 10. THE OBLIGATION OF PRODUCTION IT WAS NOT THE SEASON BUT STILL JESUS WANTED FRUITS. NOTHING CAN JUSTIFY THE LACK OF PRODUCTION 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.
  11. 11. THE OBLIGATION OF PRODUCTION TO PRODUCE IS A MUST FOR ALL THE CREATURES OF GOD. THE LORD CURSED THE TREE!!! 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again."
  12. 12. WHY SUCH FURY!!! JESUS KNEW THE PRODUCTION POWER IN THE TREE JESUS KNEW HE COULD PRODUCE INSPITE OF THE SEASON JESUS WANTED THE TREE TO PRODUCE AT LEAST FOR HIM JESUS CONSIDERED THE LACK OF FRUIT AS A REBELLION TO HIS CREATIVE POWER JESUS CONSIDERED THE LACK OF FRUIT AS A NON PARDONNABLE OFFENSE
  13. 13. PENALTY FOR LACK OF PRODUCTION THE SENTENCE FOR THE SIN OF LACK OF PRODUCTIVITY WAS: TOTALE DESTRUCTION WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again."
  14. 14. PENALTY FOR LACK OF PRODUCTION IF YOU CANNOT PRODUCE THERE IS NO REASON YOU SHOULD LIVE. PERISH NOW!!!
  15. 15. THE LESSON GOD WANTS EACH ONE TO MAKE HIS LIFE FRUITFULL. YOU MUST BE DOING SOMETHING WITH CLEAR RESULTS THAT WILL GLORIFY GOD.
  16. 16. THE LESSON YOU MUST JUSTIFY YOUR LIFE ON EARTH!
  17. 17. THE WICKED AND LAZY SERVANT Matthew 25:14-30 14 "Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. 15 To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16 The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. 17 So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. 18 But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. 19 "After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.
  18. 18. THE WICKED AND LAZY SERVANT Matthew 25:14-30 20 The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.' 21"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!' 22"The man with the two talents also came. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.'
  19. 19. THE WICKED AND LAZY SERVANT Matthew 25:14-30 23 "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!' 24 "Then the man who had received the one talent came. 'Master,' he said, 'I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.'
  20. 20. THE WICKED AND LAZY SERVANT Matthew 25:14-30 26 "His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 28 " 'Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. 29 For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
  21. 21. WICKEDNESS AND LAZYNESS NOT TO PRODUCE WITH YOUR LIFE IS CONSIDER AS WICKEDNESS AND LAZYNESS; THE PUNISHMENT IS HELL 26 "His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
  22. 22. BEWARE!!! JOHN WESLEY SAID: “A LAZY PERSON CAN NOT ENTER HEAVEN”
  23. 23. THE EVIL FARMERS 33 "Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey. 34 When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit. 35 "The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. 36 Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way.
  24. 24. THE EVIL FARMERS 37 Last of all, he sent his son to them. 'They will respect my son,' he said. 38 "But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him and take his inheritance.' 39 So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. 40 "Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?" 41 "He will bring those wretches to a wretched end," they replied, "and he will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time."
  25. 25. THE EVIL FARMERS THEY WERE PRODUCING BUT NOT FOR GOD. THEY DID NOT WANT THE MASTER TO ENJOY THE FRUITS OF THEIR PRODUCTION. THEY WERE SELFISH THAT IS WHY THEY WERE EVIL. THEY WERE TO BE DESTROYED. 40 "Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?" 41 "He will bring those wretches to a wretched end," they replied, "and he will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time."
  26. 26. THE OBLIGATION OF PRODUCTION A FRUITFULL LIFE IS BLESSED BY GOD “7 Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. 8 But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.”
  27. 27. THE OBLIGATION OF PRODUCTION A FRUITLESS LIFE IS BLESSED BY GOD “7 Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. 8 But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.”
  28. 28. THE GENES OF GOD GOD HAS GIVEN US HIS GENES. WE CAN CREATE. WE MUST CREATE. LET US REJECT A FRUITLESS LIFE! Psalms 82:6 "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.'
  29. 29. JESUS IS OUR STRENGTH WE HAVE THE BACKING AND THE STRENGTH OF THE LORD. LET US RISE AND MAKE THIS YEAR THE MOST FRUITFULL OF OUR ENTIRE LIFE SO FAR Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”
  30. 30. DETERMINE YOUR TALENT AND GIFTS DETERMINE YOUR TALENTS AND GIFTS AND DEVELOP THEM TO THE MAXIMUM. GOD WILL BLESS YOU. GOD BLESS THOSE WHO PRODUCE.
  31. 31. THE CALL RISE!!!! AND LIVE A PRODUCTIVE LIFE
  32. 32. GOD BLESS YOU ALL
