Matthew 21: 28‐32
1. The father said to the son: “Son, go, work today in my vineyard.” <28> a. If the two sons had listened to their father’s command diligently, what will they receive? i. Before the father asked the sons to work in the vineyard, he has already prepared all the blessings to the sons. ii. The sons will also enjoy working with the father and inherit the father’s assets. b. Since our Father in Heaven had told us much, those whom had listened and believed are called to be blessed. i. For the things which we need to know, He has already mentioned and revealed to us… ii. Who is God / who am I / what is the world / how will the Kingdom of Heaven descend / the perfect will of God / how the future will be… iii. Why did God created me and allow me to be born again / how could we see God, communicate with God, walk with God / how can we bless our families, our living area and the world. c. God’s words bring forth the power of creation and it will be done when it was spoken. i. When God said let there be light and there was light…whatever God said, it was done…<Gen 1: 1‐3>, all things were made by the Word <John 1:3>, God’s word is alive and it has the effective power; Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away <Matt 24: 35>. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you <John 15: 7>. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it <Rev 1: 3>. d. If only we are willing, we could enjoy a blessed life just like those extraordinary people in the Holy Bible. i. If we could believe what Abraham, David and Paul believed, we will become today’s Abraham, David and Paul, whom had enjoyed the blessings belonging to the Heaven, the earth and the eternal throughout our lives. ii. But most saints in the current era did not behave at such. That is why Paul had to pray for them < Ephesians 1: 15‐23, 3: 14‐21>. Which of the two did the will of his father? <29‐32> a. He answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go = Chief Priest, Scribes and the elders. i. = The people who have died in the wilderness (full of complains, fear, idols worshippers, those who did not succumb to God) / The Israelites whom had worship the idols in the land of Canaan. ii. = The Israelites who walks according to the paths of King Saul and Jeroboam. iii. = This also refers to the disciples of the current churches who looked as though they are worshipping the Lord and serving the Lord, but they have not seen and followed the Lord. iv. = The polluted Gospel messages which blends matters of the world, outward behavior, knowledge, legalism, mysticism and humanism. These are the people who don’t understand the root problem of mankind
(spiritual death / the flesh, the root of sin, evil spirit) <Ephesians 2: 1‐3> As a result, they do not understand the mysteries and secrets of the Gospel of Jesus Christ <Ephesians 2: 4‐6>. v. = Those who do not understand dying and resurrecting together with Jesus Christ and being together in Heaven (The blood scarifies of Able/ Noah’s ark / the blood of the lamb at the day of Passover / the word became flesh, die and resurrected, the Jesus Christ who governs the throne), (the sanctification of exiling from Egypt, the spiritual cleansing of crossing the Red Sea, the communication in the Tabernacle, following the pillar of cloud and fire, the objectives of walking towards the land of Canaan); Therefore, they have no ways to understand their identity, belongings, relationships, promises, authorities and inheritance. As a result, they have no ways to understand the Lord’s perfect will in everything. Their spirits are as good as dead; because they can’t see that the Lord is with them and guides them. They live a blur religious life style. ** The Lord from today’s bible scripture said: “For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him”. <32> ** The Lord said, they have not loved Me in their lives, that is why they do not follow the word of the Lord and therefore, they will not see that the Lord is with them and guided them <John 14: 21‐24>. The Lord said that they do not belong to God; they are not the sheep of the Lord, not the wheat; but they are the goats, barnyard grass and the sons of Satan <John 8: 42‐47> He answered: ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went = the tax collectors and harlots who have regretted = the people with the 8 beatitudes. i. Among the Israelites, this relates to those who truly understand the meaning of dying and resurrection of Christ (those who went through circumcision) = the living principles of Abraham, Moses, David. ii. Among the gentiles, this relates to those whom have heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and had believed, repented (turning towards God), baptized (dying and resurrecting with Christ), their sins were forgiven, received the holy spirit, obtained a new life and became the children of God, because they understand their “fundamental problem” and are willing to die and be resurrected with Christ in order to obtain a new life. As a result, the Holy Spirit made them in no ways to fall in love with the world, sin and their old selves; at the same time pushing them to see that God is with them, guiding them and to be serious about discovering God’s perfect will so that they will love God naturally and follow God’s way. All these will happen because they have witness their new life, understood that Jesus Christ had came into their new lives through the Holy Spirit and the truth, and had believed that their lives are Christ’s body, the temple of the Holy Spirit, God’s children and the citizens of Heaven. Therefore, their ultimate objective is to glorify God, be beneficial to the people and the contribution to the establishment of the Kingdom (the 4 gospelization) and they seek God’s will through their objectives and their new identities. They are able to see God anytime and anywhere.
Since then, they will naturally love to learn about God’s word (the perfect will of the Lord) and they love to be cleansed, ask from the Lord, intersession of prayer, hand over to the Lord and hope from the Lord, making these attributes the center of their lives (living a life in focus of the tabernacle). They will gradually learn about God’s perfect will and they will have many more evidences of God’s guidance and blessings. As a result, they became a “living sacrifice”. Whatever these people do in their lives became a means to glorify God (they glorify God, benefited the people and contributed to the establishment of the Kingdom). Their lives are systematic and has a point of focus. Therefore, for the message and testimony they speak to the other people are very practical and easy to understand. They will attract people with the same set of lives (the lives of 8 beatitudes). Their lives will continue to expand and will bear even more fruits. ** The Lord said: “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” <John 14: 21>; “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” <John 10: 27>; I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing <John 15: 5>; “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…I am with you always, even to the end of the age” <Matt 28: 18‐20> Blessed are those whom had regretted. a. The regret which brings new life <John 3: 3, Eph 2: 1‐10, Romans 6: 1‐11, Acts 9: 1‐22> = it will only happen once in a life time. i. Only those who know their fundamental problem will understand that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah). ii. Those who truly knew Christ will then willing to sacrifice everything, asking to die and to be resurrected with Christ, so that they could obtain a new life and a new objective. iii. Those who truly knew the mysteries and secrets of Christ will understand how to see God in Christ and seek God’s perfect will. ** For those whom have not experience such regret are not “born again” <John 3: 1‐21>. b. The regret which acts as a turning point for a person <Luke 24: 13‐ 35, Acts 11: 25‐26, 13: 1‐3, 16: 6‐10> = it will happen at least once in a life time. i. For a blessed saint, he/she will definitely have at least one turning point in the career and his/her life. ii. This will happen only after we discover our mistakes, failures, obstacle, weakness and limitation, only then we give up our selves so that we could renew our selves while waiting for God’s leading and guidance. Within the time of humbleness, we will discover God’s perfect will, God’s timing and God’s method in all things. iii. For every time we encounter our turning point, we will receive a new anointment of grace, strength, occupation and frontier… For those who were born again, but did not seek their lives’ objectives, they live a life without a master and they will not witness their changes out of their regrets.
The regrets which will lead us to be filled with the Holy Spirit, having the ability to cast out the demons and returning to the Kingdom of Heaven <Matt 12: 28, Romans 14: 17, Eph 5: 15‐21, Philippians 3: 7‐14, Gal 5: 16‐24, Exodus 29: 38‐46> = we have to sacrifice ourselves in everything and every moment in order to obtain the strength in Christ’s resurrection. i. There are 2 laws which are conflicting in the life of a blessed disciple (the Holy Spirit and the flesh) <Gal 5: 17, Romans 8: 5‐11>. ii. When a saint is willing to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit <John 4: 26> and the guidance of Lord Jesus Christ, they will be filled with the Holy Spirit. From there, they will witness the guidance and strength of the Holy Spirit and they will see the fruits of the Holy Spirit in their lives <Gal 5: 22‐23>. iii. When the disciples depended on the Holy Spirit, they could cast out the demons, the Kingdom of Heaven will descend <Matt 12: 28>. They received all kinds of graces and rewards from the Heaven <James 1: 17‐ 18>, and for those who are with the disciples, they could see the works of the Holy Spirit and they were blessed <Acts 2: 5‐41> ** Only the disciples whom had determined their objectives of lives, obtained the perfect will of the Lord, had experienced the strength and the fruit of the Holy Spirit when they were humbled, and love living in focus to the tabernacle (prayer life), could enjoy the strength of “resurrection” anytime and they are able to bless others.
