To him who has!
Have you ever wondered what the following scripture means?
“I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. Luke 19:26 NASB.
Remember when the disciples told Jesus of the need for food for the 5000 men and he replied; “You give them something to eat”. They replied that they only had five loafs of bread and two fishes, they had thought about going into a village to buy food.
But He said to them, “You give them something to eat!” And they said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless perhaps we go and buy food for all these people.” Luke 9:13 NASB.
Now let’s look at the deeper spiritual meaning of these verses. It was God’s will that the believers would do his preordained works through various ministries and the Good Works that every Christian is zealous for as his peculiar people. The one who has is the believer who is indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit, to them more will be given (New Bodies, eternal life with the Lord) but the one who has not, the unsaved wicked everything he has in this world will be taken away.
Going into a village to buy food would have been the work of man but the Miracle came through God who blessed them because they did have as God’s Elect, therefore more was given.
They had five loafs and two fishes but God gave them more, enough to feed the 5000 with more to spare. They indeed gave the people something to eat but this physical food represented the spiritual food that believers would provide as God directs and blesses. They will bring THE BREAD from Heaven, Jesus to the multitudes for they are the light and salt of the earth!
If you have the Son of God you have life, those who don’t do not have life but the wrath of God is upon them. John 3:36 NASB.
