Mark 12:1 A Man Planted a Vineyard

Mark 12: A man planted a vineyard: God sent the Prophets to warn against the priests and Levites (the "musicians") who "fiddled as the nation burned." They killed the prophets and finally God Incarnate came to eradicate the FALSE SHEPHERDS who attempted to destroy Jesus and TRIUMPH OVER HIM with music to keep others from LISTENING TO HIM.

AND he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set a 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. Mark 12:1

And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. Mark 12: 2

Click to see God's vineyard, thorns and musical worship festivals. The New Wineskin Religion with music was always Israel telling God: "We will not listen to your words." In Ezekiel 33 God compares "singing with a beautiful voice and playing well on an instrument" to the song of the prostitute in Amos 5, 6 as the work of Lucifer (from halal). When people came to God for the entertainment value it said what the Jews thought when John might be "soft" and Jesus might sing and dance the Dionysus shuffle to disqualify Him as the Masculine God prophesied.

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: Isa 5:1

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. Isa 5: 2

And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. Isa 5: 3

What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? Isa 5:4

And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. Isa 5:6

For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for Isa 5: 7 righteousness, but behold a cry.

Poison berries: the vines of Sodom.

DSS
But Thou, O God, 
        dost despise all Satan's designs;
        it is Thy purpose that they shall be done
and the design of Thy heart
that shall be established for ever.
As for them, they dissemble,
        they plan devilish schemes.
        They seek Thee with a double heart
        and are not confirmed in Thy truth.
A root bearing poisoned and bitter fruit
        is in their designs;
they walk in stubbornness of heart
        and see Thee among idols,
then they set before them
        the stumbling-block of their sin.

And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty. Mark 12: 3

WOE is me for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit. Micah 7:1

The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. Micah 7:2

Jesus put the shepherds in charge of the sheep, the ignorant in charge of the teachers, the vineyard as God's House in charge of the under vinedressers. If the husbandman lets the wild animals in to destroy the harvest then he will be considered part of the end-time chaff.

Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst. Isa 50:2

And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezek 22:30

Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God. Ezek 22: 31

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. Mark 12: 4

I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. Isa 50:6

And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head, Mark 15:17

And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews Mark 15: 18
And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did
spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. Mark 15: 19

And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him. Mark 15: 20

And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some. Mark 12: 5

And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the Lord, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the Lord, he hath also forsaken you. 2 Chr 24:20

And they conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the commandment of the king in the court of the house of the Lord. 2 Chr 24:21

Yet the Lord testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. 2 Chr 17:13

Notwithstanding, they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the Lord their God. 2 Chron 17:14

Wherefore the princes were wroth with Jeremiah, and smote him, and put him in prison in the house of Jonathan the scribe; for they had made that the prison. Jer 37:15

Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations. Neh 9:26

When the Jews compared to "children" PIPED Jesus and others were expected to SING and DANCE. The only other person who so danced was Herod's step daughter. Because of her seductive, musical dance, she tempted Herod beyond limit:

And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison. Mark 6:27

And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. Mark 6: 28

Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son. Mark 12: 6

Jezebel's prophets were "musical prophesiers." They tried to arouse or awaken their "god" to come and light the fires. However, Elijah just spoke the word and the fires consumed the sacrifice.

Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord; but Baals prophets are four hundred and fifty men. 1 Kings 22

But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir, come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours. Mark 12: 7

Moreover the prince shall not take of the peoples inheritance by oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; but he shall give his sons inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not scattered every man from his possession. Ezekiel 46:18

WOE to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand. Micah 2:1

And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. Micah 2: 2

AND it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. 1 Kings 21:1

And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money. 1 Kings 21: 2

And Naboth said to Ahab, The Lord forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee. 1 Kings 21: 3

And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread. 1 Kings 21: 4

But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread? 1 Kings 21: 5

And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard. 1 Kings 21: 6

And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. 1 Kings 21: 7

So she wrote letters in Ahabs name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth. 1 Kings 21: 8

And she wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people: 1 Kings 21: 9

And set two men, sons of Belial, before him, to bear witness against him, saying, Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die. 1 Kings 21: 10

And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. Mark 12: 8

And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sat before him: and the men of Belial witnessed against him, even against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. Then they carried him forth out of the city, and stoned him with stones, that he died. 1 Kings 21:13

Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth is stoned, and is dead. 1 Kings 21: 14

And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead. 1 Kings 21: 15

And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it. 1 Kings 21: 16

But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. Matthew 21:38

And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. Matthew 21: 39

The Willow Creek, Jubilee or Saddleback Community pattern is to "cast out Jesus" and His Word and replace it with theatrical performance (musical worship teams) to bring on a sexual-like attack to make everyone go away "smiling!" Yeah! Dr. Rubel Shelly says that time and personal agendas has "filtered out" the Bible except seven factual statements about Jesus. However, Jesus identified Himself with the Words of the Father: cast out the Bible in song and sermon then we cast out the Owner of the Vineyard:

What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others. Mark 12: 9

The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses. Isaiah 3:14

What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord God of hosts. Isaiah 3: 15

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, of Ahab the son of Kolaiah, and of Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, which prophesy a lie unto you in my name; Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall slay them before your eyes; Jer 29:21

So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it; 1 Chr 10:13

The familiar spirit was an old wineskin. It produced a hollow, echo sound and the "witch" acted as a ventriloquist. It has the same meaning as the NEBEL or HARP derived from a "vile person" and the hi-tek sounding brass of 1 Corinthians 13.

And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner: Mark 12: 10

The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. Psa 118:22
Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. Isa 8:13

And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Isa 8:14

And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken. Isa 8:15

And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? Luke 20:17

Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. Luke 20:18

This was the Lords doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? Mark 12: 11

This is the Lords doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. Psa 118:23

LOVE forced Jesus to rebuke all of the priests and all of the elders of Judaism:

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. Mark 12: 12

DSS For Thou, O God, hast sheltered me
        from the children of men
And hast hidden Thy Law within me
        against the time when Thou shoudst
        reveal Thy salvation to me. (Isaiah 11:1-3)

And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: Isa 5:5

And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. Isa 5:6

For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry. Isa 5:7

Woe unto them that join house to house (church house to church house), that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth Isa 5:8

In mine ears said the Lord of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. Isa 5: 9

Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah. Isa 5: 10

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine (exhilarated wineskin worship) inflame them Isa 5: 11

And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Isa 5: 12

DSS All who have eaten my bread
        have lifted their heel against me (cf John 13:18)
And all those joined to my Council
        have mocked me with wicked lips. (Children piping and chiding.)

They have overtaken me in a narrow pass (gap) without escape
        And there is no rest for me in my trial.

They sound my censure upon a harp
        and their murmuring and storming upon a zither." Ps.41:11

With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries." Re.17:2

And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Re.18:14

And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Re.18:14

When the Jews attacked Jesus it was a musical triumph over ceremony: making music and "making a joyful noise before the Lord." This was the warrior's battle cry as the tried to defeat Beliar.

Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Isa 5: 13

Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it Isa 5: 14

Of the king of Babylon which represented Egypt, Sodom and Jerusalem:

Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the maggots cover thee. Isa 14:11

And at the end times:

And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; Rev 18:22

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. Rev 18:23

See how the Assyrians (Babylonians or Egypt or Israel) would be defeated and sacrificed in the red hot arms of "molech" at the kings's music grove at Topheth.

Caesar gets his due taxes but Christ paid the temple tax for His "sons" and Paul repudiated the idea of a "command to give." God doesn't need money and the dominant leaders will squander it. Therefore, we give to God by sending out evangelists and helping the helpless: there is no dole for the able bodied who will not "go, preach, baptize, teach."

And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words. Mark 12: 13
        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? Mark 12: 14
DSS They come to inquire of Thee
        from the mouth of lying prophets deceived by error (Eze 13)
Who speak with strange lips to Thy people,
        and an alien tongue,
That they may cunningly turn
        all their work to folly.

SUMMARY COMPARED TO ISAIAH 5

Mark 12:1 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.

Mark 12:2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant,
        that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.

Mark 12:3 And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.

Mark 12:4 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.

Mark 12:5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others;
         beating some, and killing some.

Mark 12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved,
        he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.

The Son of God is God's WORDS personified.

Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,  [Spirit of Christ]
Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son,
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
        by whom also he made the worlds;
Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
        and the express image of his person,
        and upholding all things by the word of his power,
        when he had by himself purged our sins,
        sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Mark 12:7 But those husbandmen said among themselves,
        This is the heir; come, let us kill him,
        and the inheritance shall be ours.

Mark 12:8 And they took him, and killed him,
        and cast him out of the vineyard.

Mark 12:9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do?
        he will come and destroy the husbandmen,
        and will give the vineyard unto others.

Mark 12:10 And have ye not read this scripture;
        The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
        [psa 118]

Mark 12:11 This was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Mark 12:12 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.

FULFILLING ISAIAH

Isaiah 5 and God singing to Israel is the MARK that they have been turned over to the "beasts" or massed multitudes to eat up all of their work.

http://www.piney.com/Isaiah.Five.html

Israel is a term used for those God called out of Egypt. That is a TYPE of God calling Jesus out of Egypt. And because the Spirit OF Christ inspired the prophets; and they define the future spiritual Israel--the Church of Christ--both inclusively and exclusively. Christ quarantined the godly people to the synagogue and from the sacrificial system with loud noise as the meaning of "the worship of the starry host."

Isaiah 5:1 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:

When God "sings" to people it is a MARK that people have gone beyond redemption because they engaged in musical rituals and refused to teach the children that which God composed: if you will SING this song next week the silly people will sit down.

Isaiah 5:2 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.

Rubel Shelly--one of the first Changelings--wrote an article on Isaiah 5 and MISSED the punch line. People who have FALLEN into the Music=Worship fallacy will NEVER be able to read parables again and therefore MUST go into captivity to a mega-church (big or small). There, in John's message the Locusts=Muses will hold you captive and separate you from the godly people (Rev 17-18)

Isaiah 5:3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.

Isaiah 5:4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?

Isaiah 5:5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:

That happened with the Promise Keepers onward.

Isaiah 5:6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

Isaiah 5:7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.

Isaiah 5:8 Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth

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. Mark 12: 15

And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesars. Mark 12: 16

And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods. And they marvelled at him. Mark 12: 17

For all of the musical people at the temple who, by definition, rejected Jesus by continuing the animal burning music (noise), Jesus would remove the money changers 'trumpets' and direct the mony from my hand to the hand of the poor. This does not eleminate collective giving for any good chause but it can never be a tithe or tax.

The people were concerned with whose wife would belong to whom but Jesus denied that they had the POWER OF GOD because they KNOW NOT THE SCRIPTURES:

And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? Mark 12: 24

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. Mark 12: 25

Consistent with all SELF-SELECTED LEADERS these people knew nothing about the Scripture and cared nothing for it:

And as touching the dead, that they rise; 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? Mark 12: 26

He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err. Mark 12: 27

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? Mark 12: 28

As with all of the "new style worship" most worship teams worship the names of three gods: Father, Jesus and Spirit. However, Spirit is not a name but the nature of God: His mental attitude.

Therefore, those who pray for the separated out Holy Spirit to "guide them into new Doctrine and Essential Practices" they are polytheistic and know not god and therefore have no power from God:

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12: 29

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. Mark 12: 30

And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Mark 12: 31

What we erroneously call "music" had any use only in Jerusalem, in the temple and in connection with the BURNING part of animal sacrifices. Therefore, one cannot love the Lord with all of thy UNDERSTANDING and use this as authority for music without denying that Jesus Christ died to abrogate all sacrificial systems.

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: Mark 12: 32

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 neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. Mark 12: 33

DSS Anguish seizes me
        like the pangs of a woman in travail, (John 16:21)
and my heart is troubled within me.
        I am clothed in blackness
        and my tongue cleaves to the roof of my mouth. (Vermes, 165f)
 
My strength has gone from my body
        and my heart runs out like water;
my flesh is dissolved like wax
        and the strength of my loins is turned to fear.
 
My arm is torn from its socket
        and I can lift my hand no more;
My foot is held by fetters
        and my knees slide like water;

The king, David, and THE COMMANDERS OF THE ARMY set the instrumental and singing Levites over the burning of animal sacrifices. There was no other rational use. Therefore, when we SET THE MUSICAL WORSHIP TEAM OVER THE FLOCK we are restoring an essential part of animal sacrifices and therefore repudiate Jesus as Full Deity.

> The Levitical "musicians" or producers of a great crashing sound played their part during the burning phase of animal sacrifices.

> Loving God and man is more important than burning animal sacrifices.

> Therefore, LOVE would never impose the "animal burning music" on those freed by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

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. Mark 12: 34

And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David? Mark 12: 35

For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool. Mark 12: 36

Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 1Pe 1:11

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Rev 19:10

David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly. Mark 12: 37

Therefore, those who believe that they can seduce the Holy Spirit believe that they can seduce Lord Jesus Christ Who is the Spirit or Mind of God, believe, like the Jews, that perhaps Jesus can be seduced into the Dionysus dance and song or that John might wear the "soft" clothing of the king's male concubine: a catamite.

Jesus took away the keys of the Jewish clergy because they "took away the key to knowledge." The key given to Peter and the apostles was to go, teach, baptize, teach.

And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes (book writers), which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the market places, Mark 12: 38

The marketplace or Agora was also a gathering place for people selling sermons, songs, dances and sex. Jesus compared these people to the children "chorus leaders" who performed the fertility rituals of funeral and wedding.

But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows Matt 11:16

And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. Matt 11:17

YOUR CHURCH MAY BE AN AGORA. The marketplace or Agora was also a gathering place for people selling sermons, songs, dances and sex. Jesus compared these people to the children "chorus leaders" who performed the fertility rituals of funeral and wedding.

And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts: Mark 12: 39

Which devour widows houses, and for a pretense make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation. Mark 12: 40

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. Mark 12: 41

Therefore, Jesus would utterly condemn those who use COMMAND AUTHORITY to reimpose the temple tax or to force widows to tithe or confiscate her house by getting her to "pledge" it and take it away from her heirs just to build a new temple of doom.

Contrary to those who make up their own doctrine and essential practices, Jesus did not command the elders to "take the houses of widows" by getting them to donate it to them in their will. Rather, the leaders were "devouring the widows houses" meaning livelihood by taking her mite. And yet, she was the only true giver:

DSS
However, in hymn 11, Jesus triumphs in the Spirit
        They enter my heart and reach into my bones to...
and to meditate in sorrowful meditation.
        I will groan with the zither of lamentation
in all grief-stricken mourning and bitter complaint
        until iniquity and wickedness are consumed
        and the disease-bringing scourge is no more.
 
Then will I play on the zither of deliverance and the harp of joy,
on the tabors of prayer and the pipe of praise without end
 
The Community Rule (1QS) reads in part:
 
And at the beginning of their weeks for the season of Jubilee.
        All my life the engraved Precept shall be on my tongue
        as the fruit of praise and the portion of my lips.

I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord; and I will heal him. Is.57:19

Take words with you and return to the LORD. Say to him: "Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips. Hosea 14:2

For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, and from his mouth men should seek instruction--because he is the messenger of the LORD Almighty. Mal.2:7

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to his name. Heb.13:15  

I will sing with knowledge and
        all my music shall be for the glory of God.
(My) lyre (and) my harp shall sound for His holy order
        and I will tune the pipe of my lips to His right measure.

You cannot get just love out of this without having Jesus slap you in the face five or six times.

Contrary to those who make up their own doctrine and essential practices, Jesus did not command the elders to "take the houses of widows" by getting them to donate it to them in their will. Rather, the leaders were "devouring the widows houses" meaning livlihood by taking her mite. And yet, she was the only true giver:

And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. Mark 12: 42
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: Mark 12: 43

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. Mark 12: 44

The POOR sacrificial WIDOW has INFINITELY MORE VALUE than the claim of Towers of Babbling that THEY can facilitate worship in houses made by human hands. They can wave and clap their hands and worship WITH the works of human hands. ALL of it is to tell God in Christ that YOU ARE A LIAR.

Jesus didn't command widows to give their last penny: He ridiculed the self-righteous who get 'written up' for their contribution--but they give for the rich and rarely for the poor.

The widow had Christ's approval but the facts seem to say: "Woe to those who accept the widow's mite."

AND as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here Mark 13:1

And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Mark 13:2

People who have gotten involved in some of the Calvinist [some neo-Calvinist churches of Christ where Jubilee was for the atonement] systems find out quickly that they are trapped. The PREACHERS FOR PAY cannot prove one jot or tittle of the heresy. However, they keep repeating the scam and claiming that IN TIME it will be revealed to you.

By claiming that their God BURNS INNOCENT BABIES they exercise a CULT MIND CONTROL OVER PEOPLE. if you want that kiddo NOT to burn you will pay your dues, attend church and get that critter splashed with water by God's WATER SPLASHER AGENT.

Willow Creek, Saddle Back or the Purpose Driven Cult AND YOUR CHURCH uses MARKETING to attract the RICH people who can help you pay for that THEATER FOR HOLY ENTERTAINMENT.

Only the DESTITUTE in mind and body are PROVEN to be chosen for favor. However, God choosing some for FAVOR did not mean that he FORCED an Esau to be PROFANE.

See Israel as God's Vineyard and the MUSIC connection.
