The End Of The Church Age In Matthew 13

On The Trail Of The End Of The Age Of Church

Many today who do not understand the perspectives from the viewpoint of a man who is raised Jewish (I am referring to Christ, Y’shua), totally missed the point, sometimes the boat and ultimately the Ark … of the Kingdom. Upon deep study in context of several parables in the seven in Matthew 13, it is clear that a day of reckoning is suggested. That day is drawing near. The train is coming to its last stop.

In Matthew 13, there are 7 amazingly wise parables that were told by Messiah our Lord. Most people cannot name all seven parables, where as to me they are my compass for obtaining a bearing toward seeing all the confusing things that are going on in the Church. Yet they are said by Messih to represent the whole KINGDOM of God (Christ’s Kingdom). Elsewhere Messiah taught about those people that He will make to be the least in the kingdom of God.

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

The wisdom that is needed to gain understanding of these parables cannot be “researched”. You know where your search results will say already. They carry man’s opinion on the www (“666”) internet. The wisdom to open the message must be for one whom the Lord opens the mind of to gain the proper understanding. The Bible indeed is not a book of information. The wisdom of God is a tool for transformation with the workings of the Holy Spirit.

The Congress, in comparison, we all know is not all good. Donald J. Trump goes to Washington to drain the Swamp in his campaign promise. In his first year, he thought it was straightforward and once and done, until the deep state that infiltrated his cabinet ratted him out falsely, creating drama. And the silly smear campaigns rose up against the President, much to the welcome of the fake news media which otherwise will go out of a job. Seriously is there real news enough to build content? No, it is spinning the wheel only.

Corruption exists. So is it in the Church. The Church is within the Kingdom of Messiah. The Kingdom is not within the Church. The House of Israel is not in the Church – wherefore it was the Jews that set the pillars of the Church in the ministries of the Twelve Apostles to obedience in the Messiah (Matthew 28| 19 – 20; Acts 1| 8 – 9).

The House Is On Hold

Where we see in this last generation sparks of the messianic revival, children of the exile scattered to all around the world rediscovering our ancestry to ancient Israel, we are not yet seeing all of our brothers and sisters in Jacob rising to the honor of Elohiym Adonai at this time yet.

Devarim 4 /Deuteronomy Spoken from 1,274 BC, the last year in the wilderness

26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that you will soon utterly perish from the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess. You will not live long in it, but will be utterly destroyed. 27 And the Lord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations where the Lord will drive you. 28 And there you will serve gods of wood and stone, the work of human hands, that neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. 29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. 30 When you are in tribulation, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, you will return to the Lord your God and obey his voice. 31 For the Lord your God is a merciful God. He will not leave you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them.

“But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. ” From these host countries as in the United States, France, Britain, Ireland, Denmark, Nigeria, China, Japan, the Caribbeans, the Bahamas, Mexico, Iran, Greece, Portugal, the Azores, Brazil and so forth, we will seek the true God. And we shall find Him (Y’shua).

Ezekiel 28

25 “Thus says the Lord God: When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and manifest my holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they shall dwell in their own land that I gave to my servant Jacob. 26 And they shall dwell securely in it, and they shall build houses and plant vineyards. They shall dwell securely, when I execute judgments upon all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God.”

The House long existed, was long called out as in qahal in the Old Testament. The Messiah spoke at lengths to the Prophet Ezekiel about ways in which He will restore the latter Israel all over the world. In Jeremiah 29, the Word told the Prophet that in transcending time and space, He will gather the scattered seeds of Israel from “all the places”, that far exceed to Babylon and Persia in the 6th century BC, back to Himself.


10 
“For thus says the Lord: When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will visit you, and I will fulfill to you my promise and bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[b] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

At the end of the seventy years of exile, the Lord did visit with the exiles and the children of the exiles in 536 BC. The children of the exile were brought back to Jerusalem in the seventh month to celebrate the Holy Month (Ezra 2).

69 They gave after their ability unto the treasure of the work threescore and one thousand drams of gold, and five thousand pound of silver, and one hundred priests’ garments.

70 So the priests, and the Levites, and some of the people, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinims, dwelt in their cities, and all Israel in their cities.

3

And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem.

Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and his brethren, and builded the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings thereon, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God.

And they set the altar upon his bases; for fear was upon them because of the people of those countries: and they offered burnt offerings thereon unto the Lord, even burnt offerings morning and evening.

They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day required;

And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the Lord that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto the Lord.

From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the Lord. But the foundation of the temple of the Lord was not yet laid.

In Jeremiah 29 from verse 11 onward, that promise is for the end of the age (our future in perspective) for the rest of the scattered House of Israel and Judah. The sign of the Cyrus was given in Isaiah 45. Cyrus The Great set free the children of the exile in 536 BC as a prefigure of Donald J Trump rising unexpectedly to the Presidency of the United States. The United States stand with Israel as her guardian as an Ephraim typology. The presidency of Trump will see about the changes in the State Israel in returning to Adonai. Now the State hosts the most homosexual festival in the world in Tel Aviv. Obviously, one day this shall end, just for instance.

I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

Isaiah 45 Trump does not have to know the true identity of God to get his tasks cut out for a 73 year-old man, still 7 years younger than Moshe when he crossed the Red Sea.

Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus,
    whose right hand I have grasped,
to subdue nations before him
    and to loose the belts of kings,
to open doors before him
    that gates may not be closed:
“I will go before you
    and level the exalted places,[a]
I will break in pieces the doors of bronze
    and cut through the bars of iron,
I will give you the treasures of darkness
    and the hoards in secret places,
that you may know that it is I, the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who call you by your name.
For the sake of my servant Jacob,
    and Israel my chosen,
I call you by your name,
    I name you, though you do not know me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other,
    besides me there is no God;
    I equip you, though you do not know me,

Church Critique

There is also a swamp in the Church, which in the Parable of the Dragnet, the Lord says He will leave it to the angels to sort them out good for good, evil for evil.

Would it be shocking to a Jew if you offered a BLT to him? You mean well to feed a hungry Jew. But the Jew will not be eating unclean food. It is important to the observant Jew where the dietary mitzvot mean something to the Torah-minded worshiper. No one will die of eating pork and shrimp. It is about corruption to your system: your thoughts, your brain health, your respiratory health, your liver health, your pancreatic care and so on. What defiles a man is what comes out of his mouth, not what goes into his mouth. If your eating habits got you to make certain choices, don’t blame the food. Convicts of D.U.I. cannot blame it on the booze to their insurance agents, neither to the judge.

Ransomed

Among the seven parables in Matthew 13, in effect, Y’shua has predicted that the corruption of the world will come from the Church. Is that a surprise? Let that statement sink in for a bit. This is not Christ saying that the Church that He bled to death for to pay a ransom for in order to redeem is evil. What He taught in fact, in the seven parables, is saying prophetically that evil will come from within the Church to corrupt the world. It must mean that the Church is a mixed bag consisting of the redeemed and the corrupt. Yet in the end, the husbandman of the Vineyard, the Father, will determine who is following and who is abiding in His Son. The sickles will come out.

There are lovers in the Church and there are abusers in the Church. There are wolves in sheep’s clothing, we all can acknowledge that fact, as well as career pedo’s in the Church that ruin the lives of boys who grew up into men. There are men of greed in the Church and those who cast their lot on abortion as well, as well as those who went through an abortion or two. Paul calls the Church a collection of saints. But you also hear people who cannot break from their habitual sins call the Church a meeting of sinners. Both Paul and those people turn out to be correct. Just read Matthew 13.

Seven Epistles

That explains why in the Seven Epistles in Revelation 2 – 3 the messages to the Seven Lamp Stands are filled with challenges. The potholes exists in the seven churches from Ephesus to Laodicea: as predicted before the crucifixion in Matthew 13. Seven Parables paving His messages for the Seven Epistles in Revelation. In glory form, Messiah Y’shua appeared in vision to John on Patmos pointing to a complex future state. What was to John’s future is now manifested in our life time.

Now you know why these following individuals are “allowed” to be called “Christians” – to the delight of some and yet to the disgust of others as myself – only because in hidden parables, Y’shua Messiah has already said it as loudly and His words will never go away.

I used to think that a true Christian is never one of them below until now. The Word of God has the final say. The Lord did in deed acknowledge for them to exist in His kingdom, they corrupt it. These are the professional corrupters: Kenneth Copland, Rick Joyner, Todd White, Brian Housten, Joel Osteen, and last but not least, Mrs. Beth Moore. I feel compelled to select one representative from each corrupting group from among Christianity to illustrate my point. Among the seven epistles in Revelation, critiques were sent out concerning legalism, satanism, idolatry, usurpy of authority by Jezebel, divination and vomit in the churches.

Kenneth Copland – look at his eyes, no other explanation is needed. The Latter Rain is mentioned by the Word of YHVH, no less Y’shua Himself, in Zechariah 10:

Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.“2 For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.”

Rick Joyner – the New Breed, laying on hands on people’s heads, baptizing people with demons (principalities of the air) to form a hybrid of “christ-figures” (NAR), where “Jesus” is just an “example” for becoming one of many ascended masters. Joyner is a freemason after the order not of Melchizedek, but of the Knights Templar of St. John. His companion false shepherds are the Kansas City prophets as Mike Bickle (IHOP), Todd Bentley (convicted teen homosexual pedophile), Bob Jones, Bill Hamon, Larry Randolph, Paul Cain, James Goll, and John Paul Jackson. Many corrupt Christians today blog and vlog about their “encounters” with a higher order entity. Where in their past They are satisfied that it was “Jesus” whom they “met” while they were high on dope or other substance abuse. Read 2 Corinthians 11| 4.

Todd White – prophet for hire, causing a stumbling block by using idolatry as Bil’am was working with king Balak (Numbers 22).

Numbers 31
And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

Bil’am wasconsequently removed by the tribes of the Israeli army of 12,000, a prefigure of all the like kind of prophets when Messiah manifests according to Zechariah 13.

“also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.”

Passing out of the land is a metaphor as in you press the lever of the toilet cistern, the contents in the bowl are passed out in a strong flush.

“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect”.

Todd White claims that he “is sinless”. That man’s mind has gone to the gutters.


Brian Houston – a son of another pedophile, bringing Christians worldwide to the table of Jezebel to eat with controlling idols. The Great Harlot of Revelation 17 is sitting at that table. By his catalog of mystical Christian music under the Hillsong brand and the pyramids of lights on stage, and the world tour of Christian concerts, he set up an altar where the idols come to eat. Musician Marty Sampson, a core member of the Hillsong music ministry, came out last year to say he did not understand his faith after offering up over 15 years, a catalog of songs where he wrote and led worship before tens of thousands around the world. Marty Sampson was well loved by the concert goers. He appeared to have stepped even further away from Christianity. In an emotional Instagram post, he thanked Hillsong Church’s founding family, the Houstons, for their support over the years (Aug 26, 2019).

Larry Stevens Furtick (Elevation Church) would also group under this category. Its Ballantyne campus opened in 2016 at a cost to the tune of $24 million. It’s the church’s broadcast home, so that’s where Furtick usually preaches in person most weekends. He runs the ONE festival at Elevation to welcome all to the same table. Bill Johnson with his Bethel (Beth-El House of God) music label also fit in this corruption category. Bethel and Dan were the two locations in ancient Israel, where Yaraboam of Ephraim (Jeroboam, son of Nebat) set up two temples and new forms of worship rendering to golden calves complete with temple male and female prostitutes. These days, the extension project of Yaraboam sounds familiar in many cities. Yaraboam is the poster child of Christian pagan feasts as that thing for Saturn in December which takes place after the Winter Solstice (Summer solstice in the southern hemispheres) and the Ishtar egg painting contest on the First SUN-day after the Spring equinox. This two pagan feasts are cash cows in Christianity. King Yaraboam invented the alternative feast of Tabernacles in the eighth month of the Hebrew year. This is in effect happening yearly in Christianity with the Christian feasts that the Bible does not mention and support. The world is also corrupted as the pilgrims of these pagan feasts bring billions of sales in the marketplace. There is a huge demand for shiny accessories and ornamental essentials for brightening up their homes where they put their marriages, health and the future of their children in jeopardy by inviting in demons and curses (Deuteronomy 28).

1 Kings 12| 32 The fixing of Jeroboam’s festival of dedication for the Temple at Bethel to this special day is characteristic. It at once challenged likeness to the Feast of Tabernacles, which was (see 1Kings 8:2) the occasion of Solomon’s dedication at Jerusalem, and yet took liberty to alter the date, and fix it in the month “which he had devised of his own heart,” thus assuming the right to set aside the letter of the old law, while professing still to observe the worship of YHVH. — Ellicott’s Commentary

It was intended to compete with the Holy Feasts Of YHVH in the Seventh Month.

Joel and Victoria Osteen – worshiping the true God in a false way or misrepresenting the Almighty in a way that is not the Most High according to the Bible counts as idolatry, it is the practical way of the breaking of the first 3 commandments. The god of the Osteens does not deal with sin and restoration. He gives only hugs and smiles and a lot of selfies with the pilgrims to Lakewood. In this category, there is the biggest company of pastors who corrupt the Church today at the cusp of its final curtain, and in turn they groom people that corrupt the world with these values that they learned. You name it and claim it. That is just Mystery Bavel.

Beth Moore – While Keith is tucked away counting the cash from sales of her Bible studies, and throwing backyard B-B-Qs, Beth goes to “teach the Bible” with her opinions and special visions to thousands of women. There is a lucrative market that prefers a woman teacher to a male teacher. Keith may not even know what his wife teaches, as, according to the Bible instructions, he is her covering of the household. He is supposed to head the ministry. But in their arrangement with his agreement, Keith Moore goes AWOL. The lady of “visions” fits in with EG White, another earlier lady of “visions” (SDA). The Church welcomes a diviner to teach their women.

Parables

Now let us delve into Matthew 13 and take a look at the parables that speak also to the corruption that stems from the Church because of the piling up of all these unresolved problems as well as problems that are swept under the rug for years.

The Purpose of the Parables

10 Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11 And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12 For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says:

“‘“You will indeed hear but never understand,
    and you will indeed see but never perceive.”
15 For this people’s heart has grown dull,
    and with their ears they can barely hear,
    and their eyes they have closed,
lest they should see with their eyes
    and hear with their ears
and understand with their heart
    and turn, and I would heal them.’

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.

The Parable Of The Tares: In the kingdom where the field is explained to be “the world”, Messiah says an enemy sowed seeds of tares while the rest was asleep. They will remain in the kingdom until the end. Many tares have infiltrated into churches, at both in the pews as well as speaking behind the podiums. The Lord says the tares are the seeds sown by the devil.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

The Parable Of The Mustard Seed: Mustard is a shrub in nature. The Lord is not contradicted. He is the Maker of creation. He knows each plant down to the molecular level. When He said a tree, it is a parable, with the intention to point to something else that will happen -over time- as the original seed grows and grows and grows. It is like me saying, in NASCAR you only have to turn right. Immediately you will hear that it is not “right” — the NASCAR drivers turn left going around and around on the raceways. But if you don’t watch NASCAR, you won’t catch the insight speech. Messiah is speaking of the corruption of religion in the tree. It is a vicious circle.

“A Bible expositor is usually not a trained botanist, nor is the average botanist trained in Bible exposition. Botanical expertise is usually not a problem in Bible exposition except when it comes to explaining Bible portions in which plants play a prominent part, e.g. in some of the parables told by our Lord.” — Henk P. Medema and Lytton John Musselman

So to the point above, everyone in His 28 AD audience knew more than the modern day pastor who graduated from the seminary that there is no such “tree” produced by a mustard seed. A parable is to be treated as a parable. The mustard plant is at best a large shrub. No birds in nature would come nest in a tree that does not exist. For Messiah was teaching spiritually. He deliberately taught an unnature-al scene where the audience will pay attention to the detail. Too bad this detail is now lost on a generation who has not seen a mustard shrub in nature.

The “tree” is a metaphor for an over-sized volume. In John 15, Messiah called the Twelve the branches. There is reference that the Lord likens people to branches of a tree. As the Church will one day grow disproportionately huge as a congregation — a mega church these days may run 5 services on a given Sunday. This is not to be confused with the gathering in small group of believers who gather in obedience to worship the Lord in love and adoration and to pray in His name.

The “tree” refers to large gatherings to religious consumers and for them to be spectators in the bleachers as in a sports event. Today the typical mega-church is a superior entertainment venue. The key for understanding in this parable is the birds. The birds perch on branches.

“Close study of birds as symbols in the Old Testament and especially in the literature of later Judaism shows that birds regularly symbolize evil and even demons or Satan” — D.A. Carson

Demons and devils rest on people as the birds in metaphor perch on the branches in the mustard tree.

“This parable accurately describes what the kingdom community became in the decades and centuries after the Christianization of the Roman Empire. In those centuries the church grew abnormally large in influence and dominion, and was a nest for much corruption.

“Birds lodging in the branches most probably refers to elements of corruption which take refuge in the very shadow of Christianity.” — G. Campbell Morgan

Indeed these birds are spectators perching in a grown canopy of a tree laden with diseases, which acts as a camoflage to shield and shelter the demons.

The Hypocrisy in Your Life | Articles | Moody Church Media

The Parable Of The Leaven – When the Lord compares the Kingdom of God to leaven, instinctively the well meaning person might think it must mean growth. Subconsciously one may deny that the beloved Church of Christ is capable of anything bad. What is so bad about seeing the kingdom of God grow?

“Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.” – 1 Corinthians 5| 7

The command from the Apostle Paul was to remove the leaven from within the Corinth Church, thus acknowledging that leaven has entered the church. The following people that Paul wanted to put as leaven are now staples in churches, thus proving Messiah’s parable in the early Church.

9I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one.

This parable was not explained to anyone because it needed no explanation to His immediate audience — the multitude in Galilee. For example, if I advise you not to grab someone’s left hand in Mumbai, I would not expect to have to explain to you the reason why.

In the parable, Luke 13:

20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? 21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Matthew 13:

The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”

Leaven is consistently used as a picture of sin and corruption (especially in the Passover narrative of Exodus 12:8, 12:15-20). Again, both the content and the context point towards this being a description of corruption in the kingdom community.” — David Guzik

Making Bread For 100 People

People back then know “one measure” in volume is equal to what one modern day source states that one measure is 144 cups of flour. So three measures would be 30 ephah (baskets). If you were in the immediate audience, you would be startled at this parable and you would wonder where the Lord was going with it.

For comparison, one US liquid quart (as in a quart of milk) is 32 US fluid ounces. And so for the woman in the parable (the woman is the Church), truly this parable is not even close to imitating life, to begin a dough that will make a total of 1,352 US fluid ounces is part of the hyperbole style used by Y’shua.

In modern day mega churches, when they observe the Lord’s supper, ministry volunteers will have to cut little squares out of the white bread loaf to serve as “the bread” element. Even in these places, they do not knead a bread dough to feed the thousands.

This suggests unusual behavior. It points to the Church(the woman) and her problems in time. Leaven (sin) will corrupt the Church. ““Three measures of meal would be about 40 litres, which would make enough bread for a meal for 100 people, a remarkable baking for an ordinary woman.” — RT France

“hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.” The hiding (the first word) means hidden sins in the Church that are not confessed for forgiveness. Do you know if everyone in the local church has confessed their week’s worth of sins for forgiveness? I don’t. People find that “embarrassing”, but it damages their image to go public. “It is personal.” And that is the reason why so many sickness in a church are not healed. Diseases are rooted in spiritual issues. Many times in the Gospel, the Lord healed people by telling them, “your sins are forgiven”.

James 5
13 
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

The use of “until the whole” suggests that there is an allowance and a quota for the hidden sins of the Church that sets a limit. If people will confess, it clears the balance. If no one confesses, it racks up the debt. When the limit is reached, one day, it is the end of the Age of the Church (end of 2020). The more sinners they usher in through their doors, for whatever motives, the more quickly the quota will be met. Unfortunately, those in leadership keep silence about sin, repentance and restoration. The attendees go back out those doors on Sunday, back to their homes and offices living the same old defeated life. I cannot imagine how this fulfills the salt and the light directives from Christ. The power of the Gospel is neutralized by sinful men and women.

It is consistent with elsewhere in chapter 13 that there is a day of accountability, as in the field of mixed wheat and tares, as in the dragnet.

If you receive the interpretation of this message, pray for discernment from the Lord to revisit everything that you came thus far to learn from the Church. Maybe you too will have a new confession to make directly to the Lord before the Church Age ends.
