And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to
reign over us. And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
The fact that there were some citizens that did not like the ruler in our text above did not prevent the ruler’s servants from occupying till he returned. Nothing and no one can stop you from occupying till Christ comes. Even those who do not like Jesus and do not want His kingdom to come and His will to be done cannot stop you from being fruitful, multiplying, having dominion and filling the earth with the glory of Christ. Of the increase of Christ’s government and peace there shall be no end, Isa.9:7.
Herod did everything he could to stop Christ after he heard that a King was born. However, he could not stop Christ, Matt.2:16. Any attempt to stop the reign of Christ will only lead to an increase in His dominion and reign.
Psalm 2:1-4 says, why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Whether they are people in authority or not, the dominion of Christ cannot be stopped and because you are His ambassador, you also cannot be stopped from having dominion. You will continue to occupy and do God’s will until Christ comes.
_Thank God for Christ’s unstoppable dominion and declare in faith that nothing will stop you from occupying till Christ comes._
