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.

XXIII 1 Then Yahshua spoke to the crowds and to His students 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit upon the seat of Moses. 3 Therefore all things whatever they should tell you, you do and you keep. But according to their deeds you do not do. For they say and do not do.

The seat of Moses is the seat of authority in Judaea. Many Christians, being rebellious, do not like this, but Yahshua Christ was indeed telling His students to submit to the worldly authority. One lesson which is fully evident throughout the Old Testament is that God uses worldly authority to punish a sinful people. And when that happens, even the good people among them suffer on account of it. The children of Israel did evil before Yahweh on many occasions, and He gave them over to both wicked rulers and other nations. 

Judges 10:7-8: 7 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon. 8 And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.

Deuteronomy 28:28-34, and the consequences, or curses, that result from disobedience to God warn us of these things: 28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: 29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee. 30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. 31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them. 32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand. 33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed always: 34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

Matthew Chapter 22 - Christogenea on Talkshoe 07-29-2011

Among the things which we spoke about last week, it was demonstrated from the parable of the vineyard workers, and from Leviticus, how hard it is for us to keep the letter of the law in this day and age. And while Yahweh's eternal morals are encoded into the laws found in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, as well as the entire Bible, we easily lose sight of several Biblical truths. First, the law was created for the benefit of man, and not man for the sake of the law. Second, the Levitical laws were specifically given along with a priesthood to enforce them, for the purposes of the Israelite kingdom and its function in relationship to Yahweh its God. When Israel was divorced from God for its constant unfaithfulness, the entire nation being under the law was liable to the judgement of the law, and therefore the entire nation was liable to death. Yahweh preserved the nation according to His law, as He promised, by dying on behalf of it, thereby freeing the nation from the law of its (or allegorically her) husband! That is what Paul explains in Romans chapter 7. Now we live not under the law, but under the favor – the grace – of our God. We are told that if we love Him, we keep His commandments. Those commandments are not found in the Letter of the hundreds of old laws. They are found in the ten commandments, which encapsulate the Spirit of the Hebrew law, along with the few things which the apostles clarified and the admonition to love our brethren. The law was our – the Israelite nation's – tutor for Christ, as Paul explains in Galatians chapter 4. The Hebrew laws are our ideal, but since none of us can live in this world and strictly keep them, we do not judge our brethren by them. This is proven over and again in Paul and the epistles from the other apostles and the Gospels.

There is one aspect of Matthew chapter 19, verses 27 and 28, which I did not discuss last week. That is where Peter says to Christ: “Look, we have left everything and have followed You! What then is there for us?” 28 And Yahshua said to them: “Truly I say to you that you are those who shall be following Me in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit upon the throne of His honor, and you also shall sit upon twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel!” Note that there is never any mention in any of these eschatalogical sayings of Christ about “Israel and the beasts of the field” or “Israel and the Chinese” or “Israel and the Africans”. That is because it is simply not true, and whoever teaches such a thing deceives himself. Yahshua said in John chapter 3 that “unless a man should be born from above, he is not able to see the Kingdom of Yahweh.” Only the Adamic Man has that Spirit of Yahweh which makes him born from above, and in the image and likeness of God. In 1 John chapter 4 that same apostle tells us that we are born of God, as Adam our father also was, and the others are born of the world. We are from above, and all who are not of us are from below. Therefore none of the others shall ever see the Kingdom of Heaven when it is instituted on earth! How can one claim to be a Christian Israelite faithful in the Scriptures, and pronounce otherwise? He is a liar and a fraud!

 

XX “1 For the kingdom of the heavens is like a man, a master of a house, who has gone out while it is early [before sunrise, or before 6am] to hire workers for his vineyard. 2 And agreeing with the workers for a denarion a day he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And having gone out about the third hour [or 9am] he saw others standing idle in the market. 4 And he said to them: ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever would be just I shall give to you.’ 5 And they went out. Then again having gone out about the sixth and the ninth hour [or Noon and 3pm], he had done likewise. 6 Then about the eleventh [5pm, the traditional end of the day was 6pm], having gone out he found others standing and he says to them: ‘Why have you stood here idle all day?’ 7 They say to him: ‘Because no one has hired us!’ Ha says to them: ‘You also go into the vineyard!’ 8 And upon its becoming late the master of the vineyard says to his foreman: ‘Call the workers and pay the salary to them, beginning from the last unto the first.’ 9 And those having come about the eleventh hour each receive a denarion. 10 And those having come first supposed that they would receive more, and they also each received a denarion. 11 But receiving it they muttered against the master of the house, 12 saying ‘These last had done one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the burning heat of the day!’ 13 But responding he said to one of them: ‘Friend, I do not wrong you! Have you not agreed with me for a denarion? 14 Take that which is yours and go! Now I desire to give to this last man as also to you, 15 so is it not lawful for me to do that which I desire with mine own? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’ 16 Thusly the last shall be first and the first last!”
