Hi
Moving on

       But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.   He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.   And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.   Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.   For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.
Matthew 21:28-‬32 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.21.28-32.KJV     [/colo

Here our Lord the priests and ruling classes how wrong they have been to first refuse the baptism of John and even worse still to refuse his preaching but the ordenary  people believed  both and  were saved.
The two sons could these be a reference to Christ and Israel Israel went first but did not do the Will of God but were disobedient  and broke the law.
Then our Lord came in the flesh and did the will of the Father  and kept the whole law.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on.

         Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:   And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.   And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and ston about to killed another.   Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.   But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.   But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.   And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.   When the Lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
Matthew 21:33-‬40 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.21.33-40.KJV       


This parable  is about God's  creation of Israel evry thing God had done from Abraham to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ all th prophets  he had sent to warn them what would happen if the continued to disobey  the law given to them by Moses.
So Israel refused  to listen  to those who were sent to them and worse was yet to come not only did they refuse  to listen to the son of God but they were about to kill him by crucifixion which was murder and the penalty  for murder under the law was death this was carried out in 70 AD when Israel ceased to be a nation.
This reminds of the story of Cain and Adle the older brother kills the younger brother both Israel and Christ are God's sons.

      When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.
Hosea 11:1 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/hos.11.1.KJV

Hi
Moving on

Mat 21:42  Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?      

Of course the builders here are Israel and the stone they rejected is Christ he is the corner stone he is the stone that holds the whole building together and we who believe are the building without the corner stone we would all fall apart we are the temple of the living God we are all held together by the holy spirit which emanates through Christ and cements the whole building together.

Love and Peace

Hi
Next verses

      Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.   And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
Matthew 21:43-‬44 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.21.43-44.KJV   


Here our lord is speaking to the chief priests the ruling classes of the temple Israel was created to take charge of the kingdom to look after it under the guidance  of God they had rejected the one the Father had sent an were going to kill him and the sentence for murder is death this was carried out in 70 AD when Israel ceased to be a nation.
The nation it would be given to of course were all those who are baptised into the body of Christ it is these who will inherit the earth and under Christ will transform it into the kingdom of God.

Love and Peace

Hello Dave,

The Church which is' The Body of Christ' does not inherit the Earth, for it's hope is to be realised in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
The nation to whom the Kingdom of God will be given, is to redeemed Israel: the nation who 'will bear the fruits thereof'

Thank you
In Christ Jesus
Chris

Hi Chris
Thank you for your reply  but did not God create man to look after his creation the earth is a beautiful place  that mankind is destroying  in leaps and bounds but God will put a stop to it with the coming of Christ.
I think you need to read Romans 11 you will see that we are grafted into Israels tree and Israel will be grafted back into there own tree and we all become one and all israel will be saved.
God will create a new heaven and earth why if we are not to be a part of that creation.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on another parable.

  The Parable of the Wedding Feast
Mat 22:1  And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying,
Mat 22:2  ?The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son,
Mat 22:3  and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they would not come.
Mat 22:4  Again he sent other servants, saying, ?Tell those who are invited, ?See, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast.??
Mat 22:5  But they paid no attention and went off, one to his farm, another to his business,
Mat 22:6  while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them.
Mat 22:7  The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
Mat 22:8  Then he said to his servants, ?The wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy.
Mat 22:9  Go therefore to the main roads and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.?
Mat 22:10  And those servants went out into the roads and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests.
Mat 22:11  ?But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment.
Mat 22:12  And he said to him, ?Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?? And he was speechless.
Mat 22:13  Then the king said to the attendants, ?Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.?
Mat 22:14  For many are called, but few are chosen.?     


In reality this is a short rundown of Gods dealings with Israel He had worked with them ever since they left Egypt as a nation as Gods son he had done everything that could be done but they still remained disobedient then after sending all his messengers the prophets who they abused and killed he sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ and they would do the same to him which was tantamount to murder for which they paid the price according to the law.
But the wedding feast of Christ and his Bride was still on but guests were needed so Christ sent his apostles to the gentiles from every corner of the world.
They are Called by them that are chosen as the apostles were.

Rev 7:9  After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
Rev 7:10  and crying out with a loud voice, ?Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!?
Rev 7:11  And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
Rev 7:12  saying, ?Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.?
Rev 7:13  Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, ?Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come??
Rev 7:14  I said to him, ?Sir, you know.? And he said to me, ?These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.     


Love and Peace
Dave
