View Full Version : Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

Parables were given so only Christians would understand. The sad part is that many Christians do understand either.
Mat 20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
Labourers, one who works. The first man Adam was the first labourer when he disobeyed God and was taken out of the garden.
Mat 20:2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
Mat 20:3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
Mat 20:4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
This was possibly Noah in the third hour.
Mat 20:5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
This was possibly speaking of Abraham and his descendants.
Mat 20:6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
Mat 20:7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
This is definitely speaking to those Jews that were here on earth at the time Jesus walked the earth.
Mat 20:8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
God begins the rapture of those believers that would die after His crucifixion. The first to be with Jesus was the thief on the cross. Luk 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
Luk 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
1Co 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
1Co 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

So the order was firstfruits, those that would never taste death, Jesus and all the believers until 70 AD, then those of faith that had died before Jesus came were resurrected.

The major point here is There is not rapture of the Church, for we will never die.

Joh 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
Joh 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Each of us, when we leave this life, go right on up to Jesus.
