1 And He began to speak unto them by parables.
A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
These servants we will see being sent to the husbandmen in this parable are symbolic of the prophets God would send to correct those who were leading the people astray rather than teaching them God’s Word.
3 And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
In the years prior to Christ’s first advent, the Levitical Priesthood were to carry out the sacrifices that looked forward to when Christ (the Lamb) would pay the price for one and all times on the cross, whereby whosoever will believe upon God’s only begotten Son can be grafted into God’s family tree. Remember: the ‘fruit’ is symbolic of those who have been converted to Christianity, so then before Christ’s first advent the Levitical Priesthood could only produce ‘fruit’ before the fact by teaching the people what God’s Word says about Christ whereby they would be able to recognize Him upon His arrival.
This ‘fruit’ before the fact eventually ceased to be produced because of the Kenites who began to infiltrate the Levitical Priesthood all the way back in Joshua 9 where they became what would later be called the Nethinims, and then began to totally take over the Levitical Priesthood after the return from the captivity to Babylon and by the time of Christ’s first advent had clouded the meaning of God’s Word with their traditions.
These ‘husbandmen’ are the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders (many of them being Kenites) who were not able to bring forth ‘fruit’ before the fact for the kingdom of God and so it is this day as far as the Kenites are concerned because they are not part of God’s family tree.
4 And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
Rather than receive God’s correction via His servants the prophets, the Kenites and their co-religionists who were ruling over the people aggressively rejected God’s messages over and over again.
5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
This is why Christ said to the scribes and Pharisees in Matthew 23:33-37:
“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: 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.”
Zacharias being Zechariah, who lived after the return from the captivity to the Babylon of old which, again, is when the Kenites began to totally take over the Levitical Priesthood.
6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.’
8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
And it was the Kenites who caused Christ to be crucified, fulfilling the negative part of Genesis 3:15 where God said the seed of the Serpent (the sons of Cain) will bruise the heel of the woman’s Seed (Christ Jesus) and so it was but as we will see in verse 38 of chapter 15: as soon as Jesus died on the cross ‘the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom’ which signified the Levitical Priesthood according to the flesh being made null and void at that time.
9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
10 And have ye not read this scripture; The Stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
Christ being the TRUE Rock as opposed to the false rock who the stones worn smooth (the Kenites) come from.
11 This was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
In Matthew 21:43, Christ also adds here: “The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
Because, again, only a Christian Nation can bring forth fruit for the kingdom of God.
Prior to Christ’s first advent, all the Levitical Priesthood could do to produce ‘fruit’ before the fact was prepare the people for His arrival by teaching them God’s Word whereby they could recognize Him as the TRUE Rock but the Kenite-infested Levitical Priesthood obviously decided to add in their traditions instead, setting the people up to cry out “crucify Him” as we will see in chapter 15 of this gospel of Mark.
12 And they sought to lay hold on Him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left Him, and went their way.
13 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch Him in his words.
14 And when they were come, they say unto Him, Master, we know that Thou art true, and carest for no man: for Thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring Me a penny, that I may see it.
16 And they brought it. And He saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto Him, Caesar’s.
17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at Him.
Notice Jesus spent very little time on this topic.
18 Then come unto Him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked Him, saying,
19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
20 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
This being because all who are in Christ Jesus when the seventh angel sounds will take part in the first resurrection into eternal life, which is when all will be changed into spiritual bodies.
Those of the 7,000 Zadok Christ will bring with Him upon His return will then be joined together with Philadelphia, Smyrna and whosoever will out of most (if not all) of the other churches of Revelation 1-3 as the Millennial Priesthood who Christ will distribute His teachings of discipline through during the thousand years whereby whosoever will can choose to stand against Satan after the thousand years are finished and take part in the second resurrection, then being able to go into the third world age.
26 And as touching the dead, that they rise:
Notice He says here: “they that rise” because not all will take part in the first resurrection (or even the second resurrection after the thousand years are finished) but some will get blotted out of existence in ‘the lake of fire’ for refusing to believe upon Christ Jesus.
have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob being still alive in spiritual bodies as all are who have died in the flesh or have yet to be born of woman.
28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, Which is the first commandment of all?
29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
“On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” as Christ says in Matthew 22 verse 40.
32 And the scribe said unto Him, Well, Master, Thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but He:
33 And to love Him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask Him any question.
This word translated as ‘discretely’ means in a mind-having way as you can see pointed out in the Greek Dictionary of the Strong’s Concordance.
Those who have the seal of God in their forehead throughout the entirety of the ‘hour of temptation’ (i.e. the church in Philadelphia) are the only ones who will not be killed spiritually at 666 in the Great Apostasy.
Those of the church in Philadelphia will be the first to be delivered up which is when the Holy Spirit will speak through them, bringing the church in Smyrna (the 144,000 who had the seed of the seal God planted in their minds during the grace period of the 5th trumpet) out of the deception whereby they can repent and be grafted back into God’s family tree along with whosoever will choose to hearken to what the Holy Spirit will say through those who get delivered up during that time, repenting also and then being able to take part in the first resurrection at the 7th trumpet and become part of the Millennial Priesthood that will come into being at that time.
35 And Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?
36 For David himself said by the Holy Spirit, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit Thou on My right hand, till I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.
37 David therefore himself calleth Him Lord; and whence is He then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
Jesus being “the root and the offspring of David” (as we know from Revelation 22:16) as well as “He that hath the key of David” as He says in Revelation 3:7 to the church in Philadelphia which is made up of those of the 7,000 Zadok who, again, will have the seal of God in their forehead throughout the entire five month long ‘hour of temptation’ because their names were written in ‘the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world’ meaning from the destruction of the first world age as you can see in Appendix 146 of the Companion Bible) because they stood against Satan when he first rebelled.
38 And He said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
40 Which devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
Not just the scribes but the Pharisees also (as you can see in the 14th verse of Matthew 23) the ‘generation of vipers’ who had taken over the Levitical Priesthood.
It is at this time the Kenites use their four hidden dynasties of education, economics, politics and religion to plant the seed of the mark of the beast that will come to fruition at 666 in the foreheads of most Christians when they worship the false rock the Kenites are the children of.
41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
43 And He called unto Him His disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
