Parable of the Talents

Parable of the Talents

Matthew 25:14-30, “For it (the Kingdom of Heaven) is like when a man was about to go into another country. He called his own servants and gave over to them his wealth. 15 To one of them he gave five talents, to another he gave two, and to yet another he gave one talent. Each one received an amount according to his own ability, and that man went on his journey. 16 The one who received the five talents went at once and invested them and made another five talents. 17 Likewise the one who had received two talents made another two. 18 But the servant who had received one talent went away, dug a hole in the ground, and hid his master’s money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came back and settled accounts with them. 20 The servant who had received five talents came and he brought another five talents. He said, ‘Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things. I will put you in charge over many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 The servant who had received two talents came and said, ‘Master, you gave me two talents. See, I have made two more talents.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things. I will put you in charge over many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 Then the servant who had received one talent came and said, ’Master, I know that you are a strict man. You reap where you did not sow, and you harvest where you did not scatter. 25 I was afraid, so I went away and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have here what belongs to you.26 But his master answered and said to him, ’You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sowed and harvest where I have not scattered. 27 Therefore, you should have given my money to the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. 28 Therefore, take away the talent from him and give it to the servant who has ten talents. 29 For to everyone who possesses, more will be given—even more abundantly. But from anyone who does not possess anything, even what he does have will be taken away. 30 Throw the worthless servant into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.


The Man, or Master, in this parable is of course representing Yeshua, the One who has gone on a long journey, but will be back soon. A talent is a weight of money. He gave his servants each a sum of money, a weight of silver or gold, to do business with, invest with, while he is gone. It is a test of each servant’s faithfulness.


Well, a couple weeks ago I had prayed for an answer to a real life issue that I’ve been helping someone with. Does Yeshua approve of credit, or living a lifestyle of debt or credit? Does the Kingdom of Yahweh operate on cash or credit? No matter what I taught this person, they had resisted changing their spending habits, continuing to buy with credit cards and carry credit card debt. I desperately needed an answer. The other day, Sept. 17, 2017, Yahweh just dropped the answer into my spirit. He just revealed this parable to me.


Notice the Man just gave his wealth to his servants. He gave them cash and they just received cash from his hand. He did not instruct them to go to a bank or loan shark, or to a paycheck cashing company to take out a loan in their name or his name. The Kingdom’s economy runs on cash, it is not a debt or credit based economy like we live with in this world’s system.


We all know what Proverbs 22:7 teaches, “Rich people rule over poor people and one who borrows is a slave to the one who lends.


Notice that the worthless servant had a bad attitude of presumption, a sinful wicked attitude of arrogance and pride. He presumed to know his master’s character. It proved to be a fatal mistake for him. We must humble ourselves before our Master, Yeshua. We must not presume to know His character or our own future. We must not presume upon His grace or mercy. We must seek to humbly obey him and please him with a contrite and meek heart. Micah taught us this in Micah 6:8, “He has told you, man, what is good, and what Yahweh requires from you: Act justly, love kindness, and walk humbly with your Almighty.”


Believers are not to live on debt or credit. We don’t know if we’ll have money tomorrow to pay a debt or to pay off a creditor. We don’t even know if we’re going to be alive tomorrow. We must learn to live within our means today, on a cash only based lifestyle. Yeshua wants us working for him, not for a banker or creditor or loan shark. If you can’t live on your income, learn new job skills so you can make more money. Learn to sell something legal that people will buy. Ask Yeshua, He will show you what to do.


We all must learn to be faithful with a little, before the King will entrust much to us. This is a teaching about faithfulness. Luke 16:10,He who is faithful in very little is also faithful in much, and he who is unrighteous in very little is also unrighteous in much.” Can Yeshua trust us? He wants to. He keeps testing His children with unrighteous money. Have you passed His test? Be faithful today with what He has given into your hand and you will enter into His joy!!


This parable is also a Yeshua Advent 2.0 teaching. The Master has gone on a long journey, to prepare a home for you, but in verse 19 He comes back to settle accounts with His servants. That is an accounting or computing term Yeshua uses in verse 19. Are your accounts in order today, so that when Yeshua comes back, like many say He is supposed to on Sept. 23rd that you will be able to stand before him in joy and not shame? I’ve been reconciling accounts for folks for over 30 years. I pray your accounts are reconciled to Yeshua. He is the Ultimate Auditor. Are you ready for Yeshua’s Kingdom audit of your life? I hope so. Turn your life and your money over to Yeshua today, do not delay, time is really short. The Auditor of life is coming back soon, maybe this weekend as many believe, but even if He doesn’t show up this weekend on Sept. 23rd, He is coming back to settle accounts. It’s time to clean up your books of account.


So, if we don’t see you in the rapture this weekend, we’ll see you in the Resurrection/Rapture in about 7 more years!! Keep looking up!!





I’ve just recently uploaded the latest edited versions of the Unlocked Literal Bible, ULB.bblx e-Sword module and my personal favorite, the Son Of Man Bible, SOMB.bblx e-Sword module, a Sacred Name version. I also converted and uploaded the Son Of Man Bible, somb.bbli e-Sword module for Apple devices. All three Bibles should be available for download by the time you read/see/or hear this announcement. If you do a search for “Son Of Man Bible” on, it may not appear. Just do a search for the “Unlocked Literal Bible”. The Son Of Man Bible modules should appear in the list below the Unlocked Literal Bible, since they are built off of the ULB.

If you do not have the latest FREE e-Sword computer Bible program for PC, Rick Myers just updated it to Version 11.1, so go to to download the latest program. I don’t know if the Apple program is updated, but it still costs $9.99, because Rick has to pay a fee to Apple to host his program on the Apple Store or iTunes.

I also store the module files on, here’s the link for the PC Son Of Man Bible:

Here’s the link for the Son Of Man Bible, Apple version:

I may or may not be editing the Unlocked Literal Bible any more, but it is available on I will focus on my Son Of Man Sacred Name Bible instead. If anyone would like to have the .rtf word processing file for making your own e-Sword module, just write me at anapto2 (at) gmail (dot) com. Just remember, you will need to download and install the e-Sword ToolTip Tool NT program to build e-sword Bible modules, available also at

I have had a request to work on the Unlocked Dynamic Bible from I’m still praying about that. You cannot imagine how much work it is to build an e-Sword Bible module from a PDF document file! I appreciate your prayers in this regard.

I will post this announcement on my blog at so you can copy the pCloud links. I will also try to get the links posted in the description box below this video.

The Bibles are FREE (except for the Apple e-Sword program), but if you want to make donations to help with this work, you can send money via Paypal to my wife’s account at, or mail a check or money order to Fill My Cup Ministries, Int’l, P.O. Box 414, Canon City, CO 81215.

My e-Sword Bible modules are FREE and legally FREED for your personal or commercial use. The Lord just showed me how to use them for fund raising for Fill My Cup Ministries International. If you would like a personalized family e-Sword Bible module, you can send in a donation of $500.00 or more, and I will make you a customized legacy family Bible to give to your parents, children, spouse, grandchildren, etc. For a $750.00 donation I will make a family legacy Bible module for both sides of your family. For a $1,000.00 donation, I will make a family legacy Bible module for all four of your grandparent family lines. Just send me the family names you wish me to use. You can request the Unlocked Literal Bible version, or the Son Of Man Bible version. The Unlocked Literal Bible is a conservative Christian version of Scripture, the Son Of Man Bible is a Sacred Name, Messianic, Hebraic Roots version of Scripture. Once you have a copy of your own family legacy e-Sword Bible module, you can share it with everyone in your family, all your friends, and all your church members. You are free to share them on social media. So, let me know the following:

1 – Which version you want

2 – Which device, PC or Apple

3 – Family names

Unlike paper based Bibles, these Bibles will last in computer storage until Yeshua returns. If He allows us to keep our computer or digital toys, they will last for at least the 1,000 year reign of Messiah on earth.

Thank you and Yahweh bless each of you!!
