To Whom Much Is Given3rd April
In context, these verses refer to Jesus' rebuke of the scribes and Pharisees and His statement about the men of Nineveh and the queen of the south condemning them at the judgment. One of the laws of God concerning accountability is being dealt with here. As stated in Luke 12:48, "...For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required..." The people of Jesus' day who rejected His message will be held more accountable at the judgment than the men of Nineveh or the Queen of Sheba, because Jesus' witness and person was so much greater than either Jonah or Solomon. Just as a man who receives miraculous deliverance from an evil spirit becomes more accountable and will end up in even worse condition if he doesn't walk in that accountability, so the people of Jesus' generation were accountable for more than any other generation had ever been. A person would be better off to keep just one evil spirit than to be set free, not fill himself with God, and wind up with eight demonic spirits, seven of which were more wicked than the first. The scribes and Pharisees would have been better off to have never had Jesus bring the kingdom of God unto them than to reject such an offer. He has given you much, what will you do with it?
