THE LESSON IN THE PARABLE OF THE WICKED VINEDRESSERS

RIGHT CLICK, OPEN IN NEW WINDOW TO ENLARGE
“The Parable of the Wicked Vinedressers” is a strong warning, not just to the Pharisaical Priests of Ancient Israel, and to those who follow Pharisaical Legal Traditions, but to those who are trapped in any Church that is legalistic, or that supports a paid priesthood that can inhibit spiritual growth in their congregations to keep them enslaved. Though it is possible that not all priests are behaving in this way, it is likely that any paid priests or leaders that make a good living off of Church tithes are acting as wolves in sheep's clothing, and they are likely false teachers in disguise. This includes, but is not limited to, the priests in the Anglican Church of England, the Roman Catholic Church, and all Orthodox Churches.

This parable is so important that it appears in one form or another in three of the four Synoptic Gospels of the New Testament, with the one in Matthew's Gospel being the most thematically and symbolically developed. Before I share what this parable means, and why it is so important, let's read this parable together as it appears in the Gospel of Matthew:
~*~ The Wicked Vinedressers, Matthew 21:33-46 ~*~  
“Hear another parable: There was a certain landowner who planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a winepress in it and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers and went into a far country. Now when vintage-time drew near, he sent his servants to the vinedressers, that they might receive its fruit. And the vinedressers took his servants, beat one, killed one, and stoned another. Again he sent other servants, more than the first, and they did likewise to them. Then last of all he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ But when the vinedressers saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’ So they took him and cast him out of the vineyard and killed him.
“Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vinedressers?”
 They said to Him, “He will destroy those wicked men miserably, and lease his vineyard to other vinedressers who will render to him the fruits in their seasons.”
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
‘The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the Lord’s doing,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’?
“Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it. And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” 
Now when the chief priests and Pharisees heard His parables, they perceived that He was speaking of them. But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitudes, because they took Him for a prophet.”
First and foremost, we need to place this parable in its historical context, which encompasses the establishment of the Kingdom of Israel under the Israelite Kings Saul and David up to the time of Yahshua's First Advent during the First Century AD. Viewing it from this perspective, we can see that this parable is a stern warning aimed at the Temple priesthood, and the Pharisees, which was one of the governing bodies that lorded it over the Jewish people. The illustration linked to below shows many other meanings hidden within this parable that help us to understand its full message:

ILLUSTRATION: THE MEANING OF THE
PARABLE OF THE WICKED VINEDRESSERS
CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE

For those who can't view images in my blog posts, here is the list of symbols and meanings in the parable that appear on the graphic:
Vineyard Owner: Yahweh God the Father
Vineyard: The House of All Israel
Vineyard Owner's Son: Yahshua or Jesus
Hedge: God's Word as Hedge of Protection
Winepress: God's Word for Reproof, Correction
Tower: God's Word as Strong Tower, Light of Truth
Son Cast Out of Vineyard: Christ Rejected by Jews,
Christ's Crucifixion Outside of City Walls
Murder of Son: Christ's Crucifixion
Vinedressers: Spiritual Leaders of Israel
Servants Sent to Collect Fruit: Prophets of Israel
Fruit: Servants of God That Produce Fruits of Faith
Son Sent Last: Christ as Final Leader of Israel,
All Other Apostles, Prophets Built on Rock of Christ
Mistreatment of Servants: Rejection of Prophets
Tied together, these hidden messages in the parable show us that the Pharisees and Priests of Ancient Israel sought to kill the son of the vineyard owner that signifies Yahshua or Jesus so that they could steal His place within Israel, and in the Church. Furthermore, the priests and spiritual leaders of today stay in power over the Two Houses of the children of Israel in order to reap in, and withhold the tithes that were meant to benefit all of the poor among God's people! In addition, these wicked leaders teach a watered down Gospel that causes believers to miss the importance of being born again so that they can receive instruction directly from the Holy Spirit within.

In affect, any type of priesthood that lords itself over their congregations, and makes them beholden to a paid priesthood robs these believers of their spiritual authority in Christ. This causes them to become ineffectual witnesses of God's Kingdom, and it also dangerously exposes them to be oppressed, attacked and deceived by the demons and demonic strongholds of the Devil!

Although churches do need to have full-time ministers and preachers that deserve to be paid for their services, they are not supposed to steal the tithes for themselves so they can live lavishly, or to build huge and costly church buildings that sit empty most of the time, and eat up the tithes. Instead, they are only supposed to serve as judges within the congregation to help settle disputes between brethren, and to serve as overseers, helping to organize meetings at public places or within the homes of believers, and saving and distributing tithes as they are needed to help the poor and the sick in the congregation.

But most of all, the leaders in the churches are supposed to make sure that everyone in the congregation is being adequately spiritually equipped to be able to resist and flee from sin and evil so that they can enter the Kingdom of God via God's indwelling Spirit. Without the Spirit of God within, it is impossible for believers to effectively minister to the lost and seeking souls they come into contact with in this wicked world on an everyday basis. We all need to be born again, and many of those who attend churches with a paid priesthood are NOT born again because it would directly threaten the power and wealth of the priesthood if they were! As a result, they often do not have the guidance of the Holy Spirit to aid them in making good decisions, and they usually lack the good spiritual discernment they need to avoid the wiles of the Devil.

If this describes your Church, then you need to get out of it! Because you are missing out on so much blessing if you are enslaved by a priesthood! To see what you are missing, just imagine a congregation full of born again witnesses of Christ that speak in tongues, preach God's Word with authority, love one another by helping one another to stay true to God's Word and Will, and perform exorcisms, baptisms, and healings as a matter of course.

If every Church were like this, no priest would ever be needed, for the believers in the Church would serve as their own priesthood, just as they should. After all, we are all part of a royal priesthood in Christ, and none of those who are fully mature in Christ should ever be held in higher regard than another, or prohibited from sharing their gifts freely with their spiritual brothers and sisters as there is need. As it says in 1 Peter 2:4-10;
“Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture,
“Behold, I lay in Zion
A chief cornerstone, elect, precious,
And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” 
Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient,
“The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone,”
and
“A stone of stumbling
And a rock of offense.” 
They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.”
This message is further enhanced upon reading all of Chapter 12 in the Book of Romans, which explains that all believers should not lord it over one another, but humbly submit themselves to sacrificial service within their congregation, and within the worldly community their congregations must function in, even while striving to remain separate and spiritually pure. This means that all believers are called to identify and utilize the spiritual gifts that they have been given by the Holy Spirit so that they can serve to aid and bless the other members of their Church. As it says in Romans 12:3-6;
“For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them...”
What this means is that each congregation should be equipped with individuals with differing but complimentary spiritual gifts, and every congregation is given all that it needs via the Holy Spirit to create healthy and powerful witnesses of God's Kingdom. But this is only evident  in a congregation when every able-bodied person within that congregation or community pitches in and helps one another as there is need.

This was the model that the early Church operated under, and there are few Churches in the West today that fully operate under this model. Instead, nearly all of them have erected Church buildings and paid for full time preachers to minister to the congregations that these buildings attract. In addition, the focus of all the people that attend these churches is always on the pastor and his helpers, and not on the congregation. As a result, few people within the congregation ever get to really know and love one another, or to utilize and share their spiritual gifts with the rest of the Church, and this is patently unfair, and a real tragedy. It is also a tragedy that many of the pastors or priests shepherding believers today are false teachers that don't really love God, or teach the truth about how to enter His Kingdom.

This is also why many believers have stopped going to Church at all, and now find themselves without the spiritual help and physical aid they need when in distress, or when they are sick or out of work. It is therefore a terrible shame that both Christian and Messianic communities have done so little to break this sense of isolation and alienation that so many within the Church experience today, and I believe that this is the main reason why there are so many within the Church today that do not really know God, or how to serve Him and those who love Him.

It is therefore every believer's call to work against this trend, and to seek to form their own personal groups where one on one ministering to one another, and a greater sense of intimacy with God and one another can be explored and encouraged in a safe and secure environment, such as in one's home. In addition, all believers who do not attend a specific Church need to pray that God would equip them with believing friends within their own neighborhood that they can seek fellowship with one another, and intimacy with Christ in a group setting.

I am praying for that right now as I await the coming of our Lord and Savior Yahshua the Messiah, or Jesus the Christ, Who is coming very soon. All the signs in the heavens and on the Earth today are loudly proclaiming this fact! In the meantime, as we watch and wait for our Savior's Glorious Appearing in the Rapture, let us all be about our Heavenly Father's business by preaching the Word of God to the lost, and loving and leading others to serve God and one another within the Kingdom of God that is formed by the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.

THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS US FLEE FROM SEXUAL SIN!

CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE
~*~ Revelation 22:14-17 CJB ~*~
“How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the
right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates into the city!
Outside are the homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with
drugs, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone
who loves and practices falsehood. I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give
you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and
Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star. The Spirit and the Bride say,
‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty
come — let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge.”

The above Scripture, taken from Revelation 22 in the Complete Jewish Bible, lists the types of unrepentant sinners that will NOT be allowed into the Kingdom of God in the New Jerusalem, which is the home of the Bride of Christ. Each believer in Yahshua or Jesus is seen as a living stone that forms the New Jerusalem, and that is why this perfect and transcendent City of God is identified as the Bride of Christ. Among these unrepentant sinners that will not be allowed into the Kingdom of God, homosexuals and sexually immoral people are listed along with idolaters, deceivers that practice falsehoods, drug abusers and murderers.

Sexual immorality encompasses all types of sexual sin, including homosexuality, cross-dressing, having sex outside of marriage, and living with a sexual partner outside of wedlock. I am guilty and ashamed of having sex outside of marriage, and living with a man I was not married to, but I'm also proud that I finally repented before God, made amends for my wrong-doing, and stopped living in sin. I'm also humble enough to admit that I saw my failings, and asked God for forgiveness for failing to keep His Moral Law - even while thanking God for forgiving me for it through my acceptance of the blood sacrifice of His Son on the Cross for my sins.

It is my love of, and desire to follow God's Son that gives me the right to judge others based on His Law, and to lead them to repent of their sins as I have, and to pray and ask God to help them live a better life in keeping with His Commandments. If you find that objectionable, it strongly suggests that you are in rebellion against God and His Law, which calls all of us to love one another by leading them to love and follow the truth found in the Bible, and to follow God's Moral standards.

My goal is to instill the desire in those who are sinners to repent, and to follow Christ by fleeing from all forms of sin. This includes sexual immorality, lying, adultery, greed, thievery, stealing, lust, violence, murder, sexual promiscuity, fornication, gluttony, and all other forms of hatred toward oneself, one's family, and humanity as a whole. But avoiding these sins is not easy, and we require God's constant help through His indwelling Spirit to succeed at it.

The idea that Christ gave His followers is that we are to love the sinner, but hate the sin, and do all we can to dissuade people from engaging in sin. We are also to live in the world, but not be of it. This means that we don't love the world, or its lusts and desires because we love God more, and desire to be with Him. The ability to do this is only possible for those who are born again through their belief in, and love for Christ, and their desire to follow Him. This desire to follow the Messiah opens the way for believers to be indwelled by the Holy Spirit of God, Who helps repentant sinners like me to stay on the narrow road that leads to everlasting life, and to stay off of the broad highway that leads to destruction.

Unfortunately, most people on this planet don't have a clue what it means to be born again, and most of them do not have any real relationship with God or His Son. By relationship, I mean the kind where two-way communication is not only possible, but frequent and helpful. This type pf communication allows God to help us make the right choices in life, and to stay away from situations and people that could lead to sin or pain.

For more information on what it means to be a born again follower of Yahshua Ha Mashiach or Jesus the Christ, please see the following articles linked to below. In addition, if you have not done so already, now is the time to repent or turn away from all sin, especially sexual sin, and seek Yahshua for your salvation, asking Him to forgive you, and to ill you with His Spirit so that you will have God as a Helper to keep you from sinning again. Now, to ensure your Salvation in Christ, please read:

TO GET AND STAY SAVED, YOU
NEED TO LOVE AND FOLLOW CHRIST!

SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS, THE
DESTROYER OF THE CHURCH!

MARANATHA! Yahshua our beloved Messiah is coming again soon! First, He will come again to rescue us from mortality and the wickedness of the world in the Rapture, and then He will come again with us all following Him as a conquering King! Hallelu-Yah!

FASCINATING FACTS ABOUT PASSOVER AND EASTER


~*~ 1 Corinthians 15:22-23 NKJV ~*~
“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ
all shall be made alive. But each one in his
own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward
those who are Christ’s at His coming.”

First of all, did you know that Easter is more popularly known as Pascha, which is the Latin word for Passover in most of Europe? Furthermore, did you know that the German name for Pascha, which is Easter, is derived from the old German word for Spring, and it was not the name of any goddess or pagan feast in that region of the world ever? Well, that's the unvarnished truth that you can share with all the people that hate even the mention of the word Easter because they have been erroneously taught that it is a pagan feast day.

Furthermore, the date for Easter is chosen so that it will coincide with the exact day that the Firstfruits Offering was once offered up to God in the Temple to Yahweh in Jerusalem, and this was the exact day that Yahshua was resurrected from the dead as the Firstfruits of the Resurrection. This was on the Sunday or first day of the week during Passover Week or the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which should ALWAYS fall on the Sunday after the first Full Moon after the Spring Equinox for those not residing in Israel, where the Aviv barley or first ripe stalks of the Spring barley harvest for the Firstfruits Offering in the Temple had to be taken into consideration.

Although the first ripe barley stalks don't figure into the choice of months for the celebration of Passover Week and the Feast of Unleavened Bread today for most religious Jews, Jewish officials add an extra Spring month to their Lunar Calendar every four years in order to keep it in sync with the Solar Calendar, and this happens to be a year that they had to do that. That is why Easter and the Sunday of Passover Week didn't coincide this year, although they very often do.

So I want to wish you all a very Happy Easter, Pascha or Resurrection Sunday this year, again, in keeping with the Jewish Traditions that Yahshua kept. May the day, and this whole Holy Week be a very blessed and happy one for you as we await the very soon return of our Messiah and King Yahshua or Jesus, when we will be able to join Him as another wave of the Firstfruits of the First Resurrection. This First Resurrection began with Christ's Resurrection and the resurrection of many Jewish saints in Israel in conjunction with an earthquake there, which opened up many old tombs either shortly after, or exactly when Yahshua rose. This major event is attested to in Matthew 27:51-53.

The Apostle Paul may actually have mentioned this Firstfruits Resurrection of these Jewish saints at Christ's resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15:22-23, which I quoted both on and below the graphic at the beginning of this article. Since there was no punctuation in the actual Greek and Aramaic versions of this Scripture, this passage could read:

~*~ 1 Corinthians 15:22-23 ~*~
“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ
all shall be made alive. But each one in his
own order: Christ, the firstfruits, and afterward,
those who are Christ’s at His coming.”

When punctuated this way, it suggests that the First Resurrection has several parts, beginning when Christ rose, and then the saints that were part of the Firstfruits of the Resurrection along with Christ rose, and then we who are to be taken in the Rapture with the saints that already died will rise up at two different times in close proximity. The first time will be at the time of the appearance of the Sign of the Son of Man in the heavens above the Earth, which is when the Rapture will occur. The second time will occur when all the martyrs that come to Christ and die during the worst part of the Great Tribulation will be risen up, which will be just after the Battle of Armageddon. Of course, the punctuation of that passage in Scripture is subject to interpretation. But it makes sense that Paul, as the Apostle to the Gentiles who was a devout Jew before that, would know this.

I wrote this article partly in response to a Messianic Jewish friend's attack on the celebration of Easter. It was an attempt to persuade him to abandon his dislike of Easter because the Holy Day is actually the Christian celebration of Passover. Why, I reasoned, would someone continue to despise a day that was never chosen in error, but for all the right reasons? Sadly, because of the association of Easter with pagan feasts that was done by the common people and not the Church, as many who hate Easter have been erroneously taught, most will not budge in their refusal to accept the truth. But I do understand it, since I used to believe this fabricated history being pushed by rabidly Antichristian Messianic Jews as well until I did my own research, and found out that it is patently untrue.

For more encouragement to all the saints that are waiting for the Rapture in this holy season, be sure to read the following hope-filled posts on my blog:

THE BEAST IS RISING, 
SO THE RAPTURE IS IMMINENT!

THE RAPTURE PROMISE 
AT THE RESURRECTION!

WHEN MIGHT THE RAPTURE BE THIS YEAR?


The question of how soon, or when the Rapture will be is always an intriguing question, and it's fun to speculate. So following are my best guesses on when the Rapture could be this Spring Season. If we're still here later this year (Which I hope will NOT be the case!),  I'll speculate on potential Autumn and Winter dates then.

A major current event that could affect the timing of the Rapture is the fact that the United Nations is planning to vote on a Two State Solution to divide the Land of Israel between the Jews and the Palestinians. If the leaders in the United Nations do try to force Israel to be divided to form a separate Palestinian nation in the near future, this move will greatly anger God the Father, and it could cause Him to start bringing down His Wrath on the enemies of Israel. So if a plan to divide Israel is decided upon this month by the United Nations, I'd say we're looking at a late spring to early summer Rapture this year, even if Israel isn't scheduled to be divided immediately.

Even though no one knows the day or hour of the Rapture, the fulfillment of many End Time prophecies and the appearance of many heavenly and earthly signs are telling us that it is imminent. Since we know that the Rapture is coming soon by the signs that Yahshua or Jesus told us to watch for as a sign of its nearness, there are several special upcoming dates to consider.

First on the list is Passover, which begins on the evening of April 22nd, 2016. Furthermore, the Sunday after - which falls on April 24th - would correspond to Christ's Resurrection Day on the Jewish Calendar. Since Christ ascended to Heaven briefly on that day before returning to Earth to visit the Apostles that evening, it corresponds well with the Rapture, in which the Bride of Christ and the Wise Virgins will be taken up to Heaven to be presented before the Father at the Wedding of the Lamb. In fact, all of Passover Week - which is also called the Feast of Unleavened Bread - is a High Rapture Watch period, and it runs from April 22nd through the 30th this year.

40 days later marks Christ's formal Ascension Day, which ended His First Advent on the Earth. This fell ten days before the Jewish version of Pentecost called Shavuot. Ascension Day and the Feast of Shavuot itself both have strong ties to the theme of the Rapture and Resurrection since they are tied to the spring Barley harvest, and Shavuot falls on June 11th, 2016 this year. So ten days before that is June 1st, 2016.

Since all born-again saints will ascend to Heaven at the time of the Rapture, I consider these dates that are tied to Yahshua's Ascension into Heaven, and the pouring out of His Holy Spirit on Shavuot or Pentecost to have a very high potential as Rapture days. Also, coming in May of 2016, the Christian date for Pentecost will be on Sunday, May 15th. So May 5th will be the Christian date marking Yahshua's Ascension Day ten days before Pentecost. So the period from May 4th through to the day after Pentecost on May 16th is also a high Rapture Watch period.

But again, remember that no one knows exactly when the Rapture will be. We only know it's definitely the season for the Rapture due to all the Heavenly and Earthly signs that there have been. So we always need to be ready! To be sure you are ready, remember to repent from every sin, forgive everyone you need to forgive, pray for your brethren and loved ones, and be kind and loving - in so far as it is possible - to prepare your heart to meet the source of all Love - our Messiah Yahshua or Jesus.

Don't get discouraged, fellow believers! Keep looking up, for our deliverance from this wicked world draws ever nearer! Also, for more encouragement, be sure to read the following hope-filled posts on my blog:

BE A SHEEP GRAZING IN A PEN FILLED WITH WHEAT!


The Parable of the Sheep and the Goats and the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares explain what is happening in the world today by God's own hand. Yes, God is pouring out His Spirit right now in an effort to reach the lost, and He is doing so with or without our support and cooperation. That is why so many former Muslims have been coming to Christ in the Middle East. Yahshua or Jesus our Savior has been appearing to them in visions and dreams,  just as the Prophet Joel said God would do in the Last Days.

But God is also dividing the nations into distinct groups, and all the rioting, fighting, bombings, and demonstrations that have been going on around the world today is a sign that the division of the nations into these two spiritual groups is nearly complete. Among these two groups, those that want to serve God and follow His moral commandments are the Wheat or Sheep of the aforementioned Parables, and those who reject God's Word and despise His Moral Laws are the Goats and the Tares that are to be burned in the fire.

The world is hopelessly divided right now along political lines that reflect the two opposing spiritual ideologies that are at work in the world today. This is very evident in the United States and Israel right now, where there are very few fence sitters or lost sheep left to be won for Christ. Those that have been reached have been reached in the USA, Europe, China, Asia and the Middle East because Yahshua has been steadily appearing to the ones that He has chosen to save in those nations over the past few decades.

Yahshua is doing this because we are so close to the end of the Age of Grace. Even the Jews in Israel and the USA have been steadily led to face the fact that Yahshua or Jesus is their Messiah, and they will eventually realize this - and mourn over what they have suffered for their long and stubborn refusal to accept Him.

We can rejoice now in the harvest of saints that have been found in these Last Days, and also pray for the many who are still lost that will be left behind in the Rapture. These poor souls need to be refined further in even greater tribulations than the ones we have had to face. Many unbelievers that have hardened their hearts to the Gospel of Salvation still dwell in darkness - NOT because they did not hear the Gospel, but because they are not yet worthy to receive Christ! Instead, they need to be refined in the fires of the worst part of the Great Tribulation before they will be ready.

So do not mourn for the lost that will be left behind. God has a plan for their salvation too, and many will still be saved - but only after they have suffered great loss, and have made the ultimate sacrifice in order to be spiritually purified. Remember also that we will sit with Yahshua or Jesus in judgment of the nations that still survive after the Battle of Armageddon, and after the Beast and the False Prophet are cast into the Lake of Fire forever.

So we saints will all have a say in who should be shown mercy, and who should not from among those who are not killed by war, famine, old age, or sickness. This will happen just before the Millennial Kingdom of Christ is set up. Furthermore, we will also be on hand to help judge those that will be resurrected to be judged during the Great White Throne Judgment at the end of the Millennial Rule of Christ.

At both of these times of formal judgment, I believe that God our Father in Heaven and Yahshua our Messiah and King will listen to all of our pleas for mercy for those whom we love and vouch for at that time, for He wants none of His beloved saints to be consumed by sorrow, or left to mourn for eternity.

Be A Saved Sheep And Inherit Everlasting Life!
