MY WELL-BELOVED HATH A VINEYARD IN A VERY FRUITFUL HILL (CONTINUED)
Scripture Reading: Mark 12:1-9 "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.
3 And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
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.
5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
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.
9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
5 Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
2 And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
Christ Jesus finished the Work and entered into eternal Spirit. In this parable the heir was killed. Jesus Christ, the Son of God in all His love and work of Redemption was killed. This same Jesus has risen with all power in heaven and in earth. Colossians 2:10 reads, "And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power." His vineyard is in the hands of spiritual husbandmen who realize that all things come of Him, and we serve to honor and obey His Will.
We can now see these acts were more than a story about an agrarian way of doing things but rather they cloaked the hidden treasures of the act of Redemption of our Lord Jesus. We can apply each act and appropriate its power through faith and love for one another. It is a time of Jubilee because the Lord of the vineyard has transferred His vineyard or people to all that is spiritual and all-powerful in Himself where they will not bring forth anymore wild grapes and the best is saved for last which in Spirit is always first.
