The Parable of The Watching Servants Made Simple

(Luke 12:35-40)

This is “The Parable of the Watching Servants”. I hope that you will enjoy what I’ve got to share here. Starting from Luke 12:35-40, it reads:

“Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”  (Luke 12:35-40)

I have to ask you: Do you know the Lord? Do you know Jesus? Do you know His timing? Do you know when He is coming back? Are you girded? Have you got your pants on? Are you prepared? Are you in clothes that you’d wear to bed or are you in those that are good for house duty? Are you sitting, watching and waiting for the return of the Lord?

People want to know what they need to be doing in order to prepare for Jesus’ return, so they look at the Scriptures, particularly Revelation.

What we need to be doing is simply going about the business that Jesus set us to do – the business of God’s Kingdom. Jesus has explained what He wanted us to do. In some of the parables we’ve covered so far, Jesus wants us not to neglect the poor, the hungry, the homeless and the depressed. I suppose I’ve gone on and on about the homeless in this group of parables and in this book simply because they’ve got no homes, simply because they’re the most needy. I’ve got a special empathy for the homeless because I went through what they are into. I hope that one person who buys this book might actually go, make a friend of the homeless, feed and clothe them and make them feel special.

What is the first hour? What is the second hour? What is the first watch, the second watch and the third watch? These were certain times during the night. I think that each watch was about three or four hours. It could be like the twelve hours in the night, it’s basically the whole evening.

Now, why would you be waiting all night? Your master was away at a wedding and he was coming home to get ready for bed. He wanted to know that his house was being looked after and that no one could break in. He wanted to be sure that everything was in order. Through the course of these parables, we’ve come to realize that there are a lot that we can do. We can minister in the gifts that God has given us. We can fully utilize our money, time and resources to further the Kingdom of God. We cannot be stagnant or be standing in one place. We can be swimming upstream and not floating downstream like a dead fish. We can be going against the ways of the world. We can be shining our light in our community. We can be a house on a hill and a shining bright light to everyone we meet. You don’t have to be an introvert all your life. You can have confidence in the Holy Spirit. It says in the Bible that we’ve got the mind of Christ. We can put on the mind of Christ.

Watching is essentially doing the will of the Father. So many people are interested in the last days. So many people teach on the book of Revelation and what’s going to happen in the very last days. All I know is that Jesus said to preach the gospel. Even in the book of Revelation, it says the angel sounded and the gospel of the Lord went out to all the nations.

There’s no question that God wants us to share the gospel. One practical way of sharing the gospel is buying an extra copy of this book and giving it to a work colleague, someone that you love. These videos and book are the parables in the simplest language that I can explain. I don’t think there’s any complex thing that I’ve said in any of these. I’ve made a point of making these as easy to understand as I can.

A friend of mine, Yianni, had a vision. He saw a couple of tables in heaven. The tables just went off into eternity for miles and miles. He said everyone was seated on this one table that had fruit and everything at the center of the table. He saw that everyone’s hands were tied with gold rope. Jesus came along the table and was serving each person at the table.

This was the parable of the wedding supper of the Lamb. Here it was. Jesus was waiting on the bride. Jesus was waiting on the people that were in his Kingdom, people who have given their lives to Him. This was now in the future, after Jesus has come and taken all His people off the face of the earth and gathered them in heaven. Jesus is waiting table on all His loved ones, the people He loves.

Will you be at that table? This parable speaks prophetically about that. When Jesus brings home the people that were doing His will, He’s going to wait tables on them.

Are you going to be at that table? Have you made your decision for Christ yet? If you’ve made your decision for Him, I welcome you to it.

I hope that you’ve learned something from what I’ve shared here.
