Christogenea on Talkshoe – September 9th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 27

Last week, among many other things that were evidenced while discussing Matthew chapter 26, we saw from the prophecy in Zechariah chapter 11 a direct connection between the thirty silver pieces for which Christ was betrayed to His enemies and the breaking of the Covenant which Yahweh made with the people, meaning of course the people of Israel. This is found at Zechariah 11:10-13, where it says: “10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people. 11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD. 12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. 13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.” While it was discussed in brief here last week, Zechariah chapter 11 itself requires a full study (which shall not be done here presently), because of ambiguities, and because of differences in the Masoretic text as it compares with the Septuagint version. Furthermore, the Brenton translation of the Septuagint Greek of this chapter is also wanting – or can at least be contested - in various places. Yet all of the versions agree on this one thing: that the covenant was broken, and the thirty pieces of silver are connected to that act.

Now it can be asserted and proven, that the old covenant which Yahweh made with the children of Israel at Mount Sinai beginning with Exodus chapter 19 was a covenant equivalent to a marriage contract between Yahweh and Israel, with God as the Husband and the entire nation of the body of Israel as the Bride. That this is a proper interpretation is evidenced in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Hosea, the epistles of Paul, and many other places. That old covenant being eternal, and within the laws of marriage set forth by God, the only way that it could be broken was with the death of either the Husband or the Bride. Since Yahweh promised that a new covenant would be made with Israel and Judah, for instance in Jeremiah chapter 31 and Ezekiel chapters 34 and 37, that would also necessitate the breaking of the old covenant, as Paul explains in Hebrews chapter 8, where he also quotes from Jeremiah. So we see that the fulfillment of the old covenant, its completion (which is the meaning of the Greek word which the King James Version often translates as fulfillment), took place on the cross of Christ as Paul explains in Romans chapter 7.

Christogenea on Talkshoe – September 2nd, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 26

 

Finishing the discourse of Christ concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, and of the time of the end, and of His return, which is contained in Matthew chapters 24 and 25, hopefully we saw how these things which He said, and the parables which He left us concerning the troublous times, the ten virgins, the wicked servant, and the sheep and the goat nations, all meshed with the many other prophecies concerning those same things, and that at the end of days and the return of Christ, all of His enemies are destroyed, and in the end there are none left but the sheep. This is the true promise of Christianity, when we shall indeed have heaven on earth, which is what Christians everywhere should pray for incessantly just as Yahshua Christ Himself had instructed us to pray, that things be “on earth as they are in heaven” when His kingdom comes. And it shall indeed come. Here we shall proceed with Matthew chapter 26

XXVI 1 And it came to pass that when Yahshua had finished all these sayings, He said to His students: 2 “You know that after two days it shall be Passover, and the Son of Man is handed over for which to be crucified!”

 

First, here we see Matthew tell us that now Yahshua had “ had finished all these sayings”, so we see that this marks the end of the discourse which began at the beginning of Matthew chapter 24 where the apostles had initially asked Him about the pending destruction of Jerusalem and the time of the end.

 

3 At that time the high priests and the elders of the people gathered together in the court of the high priest who is called Kaïaphas, 4 and they took counsel that with guile they shall seize and kill Yahshua. 5 But they said: “Not on the feast, in order that there would not be a tumult among the people!”

 

Their actual counsel was not recorded by Matthew, but it was recorded by John, at 11:47-53: “47 Then the high priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said “What do we do, seeing that this man makes many signs? 48 If we should leave Him thusly, they shall all believe in Him, and the Romans shall come and they shall take both our place and our nation!” 49 Then a certain one from among them, Kaiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them: “You do not know anything, 50 nor do you consider that it is advantageous to you that one man should die on behalf of the people, and the whole nation not be lost.” 51 (Yet he did not say this by himself, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Yahshua was about to die on behalf of the nation, 52 and not only on behalf of the nation, but that also He would gather into one the children of Yahweh who had been dispersed.) 53 Therefore from that day they determined that they would kill Him.”

Christogenea on Talkshoe – August 26th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 25

Last week we covered Matthew chapter 24 and the Scriptures which discuss the abomination of desolation, “spoken of by Daniel the prophet”, which refers to several prophecies in Daniel chapters 11 and 12. We saw that the term reads “abomination which maketh desolate” in some manuscripts in some places in Daniel. The periods of time in prophetic days given by Daniel for this may be interpreted so that this abomination may be tied to both Mohammedanism & Judaism, and the Zionist Judaism which gave us the artificial Israeli state in 1948 in particular. Both Mohammedanism and Judaism, I believe, are Satanic religions devised by the jews, who have absconded the Old Testament and have abused the oracles of God for their own purposes.

We also discussed at length the prophecy by Christ concerning the budding of the fig tree, when it shoots forth its branches, and how that must have referred to that fig tree that was cursed by Christ. Let us read the parable of the fig tree, from Luke chapter 13: 6 Then He spoke this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit in it and found none. 7 And he said to the vine-dresser, ‘Look, it is three years from which I have come seeking fruit in this fig tree and I find none. Cut it down, for why should the land be useless?’ 8 But answering he says to him: ‘Master, leave it this year also, until when I should dig around it and cast manure 9 and so then it may produce fruit in the future, but otherwise if not, you shall cut it down.’” Jerusalem produced no fruit for Christ in His final year either. So the fig tree that was Jerusalem was indeed cut down, and from that time on we cannot imagine, under any circumstances, there ever having come one good thing from Judaism or from the descendants of those people. So where Christ says in Matthew 24:32-34: “32 Now learn from the parable of the fig tree, when already its branches should be tender and it would produce leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 Thusly also you, when you should see all these things, know that it is near by the doors. 34 Truly I say to you that by no means should this race escape until all these things should happen!” Today the jews are producing leaves, and their branches have extended to control all the earth. So we know that the harvest approaches.

In Matthew chapter 24 we saw a single discourse by Christ which answered three questions, which I shall repeat here because He is still addressing those questions in the three parables which comprise Matthew chapter 25, as our Bibles are now divided. The questions posed to Him by the apostles were these: 1. “Tell us, when shall these things be?”, in reference to His statements concerning the destruction of Jerusalem. 2. “What is the sign of Your coming...?” in reference to the ultimate return of the Christ, and 3. “...and of the consummation of the age?” which is in reference to Christ's many statements which mentioned the end of the age. In Matthew chapter 24 we saw that some of Christ's discourse applied specifically to first century Judaea. This is especially evident, as it was exposited from a harmony of the prophecies of Christ here as they were also recorded in Mark and in Luke. Yet much of His discourse as it was recorded in Matthew 24 – and in Mark and in Luke - still awaits fulfillment: since it does not describe any circumstance which occurred in the first century at the destruction of Old Jerusalem, nor has it been fulfilled to this day. So the three parables which we are about to discuss, which are indeed a continuation of His answer to those questions regarding the time of the end and His coming, are especially pertinent to us now, and in the days which lie ahead.

Christogenea on Talkshoe – August 19th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 24, Part 2

Last week we ended with Luke's version of the discourse given by Christ which is found here at Matthew 24:15-22. In Luke we saw the exact historical fulfillment, as recorded by the historian Flavius Josephus, of Christ's words as they are recorded at Luke 21:20-25, concerning the forecast destruction of Jerusalem. Yet it is evident that Christ must have given a longer statement, and that Luke's record of it focused more specifically on what was said about Jerusalem, while the accounts of the discourse recorded by Matthew and Mark relate a more general prophecy.

Matthew 24 15 Therefore when you should see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place he reading must understand 16 then those who are in Judaea must flee into the mountains; 17 he upon the house-top must not go down to take his things from the house, 18 and he in the field must not turn back to take his garment. 19 But woe to those being pregnant and those with infants in those days! 20 And you must pray that your flight should not be in winter nor on the Sabbath. 21 For at that time there shall be great tribulation, such as has not happened from the beginning of Society until now, nor by any means should happen! 22 And unless those days would be shortened, there would not be any flesh saved. But on account of the elect shall those days be shortened.

Christogenea on Talkshoe, August 12th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 24

Last week we saw at the end of Matthew Chapter 23 that Christ exclaimed to the Judaeans “Behold, your house is left to you desolate!” We then saw from Daniel 9:24-27 that Christ was really only confirming something that Yahweh had long ago prophesied through Daniel. Here I shall repeat Daniel 9:24-27 once again, which is Daniel's 70-Weeks Prophecy concerning the advent of the Messiah: “24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Christ then exclaimed “For I say to you, by no means may you see Me from now until you should say ‘Blessed is He coming in the name of Yahweh’!” But His triumphant march into Jerusalem had already happened prior to this statement, and therefore those words must have yet another fulfillment.
