GOD’S OCCUPY MOVEMENT
In the book of Luke, Jesus says He wants us to occupy until He returns. What does that mean?
And he called his ten servants, and delivered to them ten pounds, and said to them, “Occupy till I come.” – Luke 19:13
To occupy means to do business. In order to do business, you gotta be busy. Amen.
Here’s the Pastor Troy Translation of that verse: “Stay busy until I get back. Keep yourself occupied by the things that matter to Me.” Stay busy, stay active, continue moving forward, go to the next level. That’s what “occupy” means.
Here’s the bottom line: The Kingdom is a place of action. When you get to heaven, one of the things you’re going to be blown away by is how busy it is. “But Pastor Troy, I thought peace was in heaven and I was going to sit on a cloud strumming a harp or enjoying the smell of heavenly roses.”
Who told you peace Is inactivity? That’s not what Jesus is talking about when He says peace. Peace is when Jesus has dominion – when He rules over things. Jesus is a carpenter. He is a builder and the universe is expanding. God Almighty is doing crazy cool things and He will continue to do them forever.
Yes, in Heaven, you will find people who are about the Father’s business. That requires action and courage right now on this earth. “On earth as it is in heaven” is what the prayer says and God means it. This is the real occupy movement and a bandwagon you need to be on.
