Luke 19:17 (NET)
And the king said to him, ‘Well done, good slave! Because you have been faithful in a very small matter, you will have authority over ten cities.’
One very important teaching of the gospel message that some seem to ignore today is that Jesus our Lord is coming back to this physical world to take over the governments of this world (see Rev 11:15, Dan 7:27, Ps 86:9). Those who are with Him would be given authority over physical territories in this earth. We would be rewarded according to our faithfulness to His kingdom work while we were in this body of flesh. Our hope as believers is not only in the fact that we would escape hell and go to heaven (that is a gift), but that we would rule the heavens and even this present earth with our Lord and savior for all eternity. But the dimension of governing with the Lord comes as a reward for faithfulness to His assignment for you in this present world.
The parable Jesus gave in Luke 19:11-29 is one of the most literal parables in the Bible. In accordance with our faithfulness to His assignment right now, the Lord Jesus would give us dominion over literal cities in this present world when He returns to take over the governments of this world. It is because of this understanding that we believers do not labor for earthly wealth at the expense of our heavenly reward. We understand that we would inherit this earth and all the other billions of galaxies with their billions of planets. Because of our service to Christ, we would inherit all things (see Rev 21:7).
Go into today remembering that the choice is yours whether you would rule and reign with the Lord for all eternity. Those that would be with Him [in government] are the called, the chosen, and the faithful (see Rev 17:14).
