[Scriptures] Matthew 25: 14-30
14) Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them.
15) To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag,[a] each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.
16) The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more.
17) So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more.
18) But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.
19) After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.
20) The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’
21) "His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
22) "The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’
23) “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
24) “Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed.
25) So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’
26) “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed?
27) Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
28) “‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags.
29) For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.
30) And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
Hallelujah! I bless you to be filled abundantly with the ‘love of the eternal Holy Father God,’ and the ‘peace of the Holy Son.’
Each person has things they should do twice as much as they are currently doing. If you do twice as much, then miracles will happen. If you do twice as much, then ‘your dreams’ will be fulfilled ideally too, and the ‘Holy Son’s plan and Will toward you’ will also be fulfilled ideally.
Let’s say that the length of the sports field is 55m. If you work twice as hard and so widen it by an additional 55m, it becomes 110m. In order for the sports field to be international regulation size for playing soccer, it must measure ‘105m long and 68m wide.’ Therefore, if you use the 55M SPORTS FIELD as is, it will be only a sports field.
However, if you make it twice as wide, it will go beyond the international regulation size, and so will become a world-class ‘soccer field,’ become a ‘100m track field,’ and if you run one more lap around it, it even becomes a ‘200m track field.’ The Holy Son made me realize that in this way, if I do twice as much, things will change into a WORLD CLASS FORM that I cannot even imagine.
Try living your both LIFE OF FAITH and DAILY LIFE by working twice as hard. If you do, it will become even more tremendous and so things will become even more beautiful, mysterious, and majestic, it will become a different world, and so you will be satisfied to the utmost. Even ‘something that will not work out’ will work out if you just do it twice as much. It will work out if you do it while thinking twice as deeply, studying twice as much, and trying to do twice as well.
This message to do twice as much is a message that applies to the entire world, every nation, and to all people. You must do things twice as safely, do things twice as earnestly, do things twice as perfectly, be twice as peaceful, be twice as faithful, do things twice as fervently, be twice as sincere, be twice as diligent, and make your heart, conscience, and deeds twice as pure and clean.
If you do twice as much, it will solve all the difficulties too. Do not only say that things are not working out and do not only say that there are lots of mishaps. Just because I told you, ‘do twice as much,’ you must not SLEEP twice as much. You must not explode with ANGER AND RAGE twice as much. You must not do THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT DO twice as much.
TIME too. You must use it while saving time twice as much. Since you cannot be moving all 24 hours of each day, you must put forth effort yourself and finish in two hours work you would have spent four hours to do.
When breaking a rock, rather than doing it by extending the TIME twice as long, you should do it by increasing the INTENSITY twice as much. Then you can do it faster. If you break a rock with light effort, you cannot break it even if you spend all day doing it and it will take twice as much time. If you break it using dynamite, you will break it in only a few hours.
In this way, no matter what you do, if you do them by traveling the express road by raising the level of your brain, praying, and so realizing, and do it with the Holy Son, then you will do them twice as fast.
Now that the Holy Son told us to do things twice as much, I hope that you will cut down on ‘time doing miscellaneous things’ to half, cut down ‘worrying and anxiety’ to half, realize both during prayer and during daily life the ‘things you should do twice as much of,’ write them down, and do them.
WAGES too. How tremendous it would be if you would receive twice your current salary? The THINGS YOU ARE DOING NOW too. If they work out twice as well compared to the present, you cannot imagine what that would be like. If you work diligently with your BODY and so YOUR SPIRIT becomes twice as pretty, twice as lovely, and twice as strong, you will become the ‘image of the Divine.’ If you do things twice as fast as you are doing now, you will become a ‘divine Being.’
A PERSON WHO TAKES ACTION makes miracles happen. Everyone, let us all surely do twice as much! The Holy Son’s Word telling us to do twice as much is a treasure in becoming raptured and a treasure in doing whatever we do.
Listening to today's message, I bless everyone will find 'things they should do twice as much' and be filled with WISDOM OF THOUGHTS!
