Hi
Moving on

    saying, ?If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.?  Thus you witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.  Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers.
Matthew 23:30-‬32 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.23.30-32.ESV       


I think what our Lord is saying here is that the scribes and Pharisees  has not learned anything from the mistakes of there fathers they had carried on in the same vain.
So why did the fathers make these mistakes I believe it was because they had failed to comply with the law or had misunderstood it is there more to the law than just the service reading of the law.

Our Lord said.

       Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.   This is the first and great commandment.   And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.   On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Matthew 22:37-‬40 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.22.37-40.KJV     


So what the law is all about is love if you comply with the law you show love to God and your fellow man so compliance  with the law is giving your free will love to everyone.
If you broke the law there were consequences  and these were frightening  but they did not deter  the Israel's  from braking the law.
The lesson to be learned is law and consequences  dose not work we s?e it in the world today we have more laws than we no what to do with but these laws are broken on a daily bases and the only thing that can change this is LOVE.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Getting back on track.

      Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?   Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
Matthew 23:33-‬34 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.23.33-34.KJV   


More scathing  remarks from our Lord on the priesthood of his day reminding them of all the prophets he had sent them which they had refused to listen to and persecuted  and killed.
The same thing was to happen after the crucifixion  he sent is apostles into the world to preach the good news and they were persecuted  and killed St Paul being beheaded in Rome so it seams the Gentile world were no better than Israel.
But what is miraculous  is with all this opposition  the word of God has spread around the world and continues to spread nothing can stop it it's  the power of God his sharp sword.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on.

    That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.   Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
Matthew 23:35-‬36 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.23.35-36.KJV 


Here our Lord pronounces the sentace for all the wrongs Israel had done from the beginning up to the time of our lords first coming.
The sentance for shedding inocent blood was death this was carried out in AD 70 when Israel ceased to be a nation.
And of course thay would also be guilty of the death of the son of God Jesus Christ our Lord this of course they were destined to do under the laws of sacrifice only Israel could sacrifice the lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.

Love and peace

Hi
Next section

    O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!   Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Matthew 23:37-‬38 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.23.37-3at8.KJV     


How often had the Jews refused to listen  to those who had bean sent to them but even so our Lord still shows his great love for them being willing to gather them together but they turned their backs on him.
But we know that in the end times Israel will be resurrected and all Israel will be saved how fantastic is Gods love.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

Mat 23:39  For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.??    

this of course means the beginning of the millennium when Christ will come again and for Israel to see him they must acknowledge who he is the son of God and there redeemer this is why Israel is back in their own land as a nation again waiting for the time when they will acknowledge their King and ours.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on.

  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
Matthew 24:2 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.24.2.KJV       


Here our Lord is speaking about the temple in Jerusalem  it would be destroyed  completely this happened in AD 70 when Rome invaded Israel and completely overrun it and destroyed  the temple and Israel ceased to be a nation and the Jews were scattered throughout  the world.
At this time the true temple was being built up the spiritual temple the body of our Lord Jesus Christ believer on believer the chief cornerstone Jesus Christ.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on the next section is concerning the end times I will take it a bit at a time.

         And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.   For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Matthew 24:4-‬5 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.24.4-5.KJV   


I think this may be a reference  to all the different denominations  that has sprung up over the last 2000 years preaching the word of man instead of the word of God.
Let's get back to the scripture and what they say.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

        And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Matthew 24:6 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.24.6.KJV   


When our Lord said these words the world was a relatively  small place they did not have the communication systems we have today so this prophecy  of our Lord is quite remarkable.
There has always been wars of course but I do think it has escalated in the last few hundred  years in number and scale the second world war was just  that a world war.
But there has been smaller wars as well you only have to put the news on and there seams to be some sort of conflict going on or rumour of some sort.
But not to worry the end is yet to come the end of course  the coming of our Lord who will put and to all this when he takes up his rightful place as King of Kings.

Love and Peace
Dave
