The chapter begins with telling the people to repent or perish. However, the original word in Hebrew translated as repent, meant to RETURN to the sacred. How do people perish? They perish because they do not return to their souls to heal themselves.
He then tells a parable about the fig tree growing in his vineyard, he went to look for the fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who cared for the vineyard, 'For three years now I've been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should I use up the soil?
"Sir, 'the man replied, 'leave it alone for one more year, and I'll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down'. As we know the fig tree was symbolic of Israel.
He then heals a woman who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years, 18 is the soferim of 'materialism striving to destroy spirituality', 18 divides by 6, = man 666. Now go and look at how many times they send 18,000 troops to war.  Look at the link, the month of my birth, February in 2010, Obama and his 18,000 troops.
What else do we have biblically on number 18? In the book of Judges, an army of 18,000 military fighters fell and the Israelites were subject to the King of Moab for 18 years.
In the book of Kings, 18 years is related to the reign of King Josiah and the passover. In the book of Samuel, David strikes down 18,000 in the valley of salt. Now look here and the mention of 18 years.
Are the Palestinians and the rest of the world aware of what 18 means? It is another sign of the Leo the Leopard from Africa, Obama in Rev 13. Abbas an accomplice submits Palestinian statehood bid at the same time as different Palestinian leader states on Arab TV, that the Palestinians will never accept a two state solution, for two peoples. One does not require the UN to be a state, building a state as nothing to do with the UN. They could've built their state 18 years ago, they had billions and billions of Western cash to do it.
As you can see all mention of the number 18 in the bible is to do with men, until the time comes for the woman to to be healed of what man as done to her for 18 years. Does it remind you of our lovely planet?
Does it remind you of Israel? The only mention of the 'cripple' in the bible is to do with Israel and the Jewish people.
In Luke 13, He calls the woman forward, and tells her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity. Then he puts his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God. To straighten up means to live in integrity of the being. To be upright in thought, word and deed.
The text tells us that the leader from the synagogue was indignant that Jesus had healed her on the Sabbath. In response he told the Rabbi's that they were hypocrites. He called the woman a 'daughter of Abraham', and that is significant to the children of Abraham. He also tells them that satan (the adversary of God) had bound them on the sabbath, as such it was only right that they should be set free on the sabbath. Today, is also shabbat. 23rd of September is also the 'Day of Breakthrough'.
In the spiritual philosophy of Judaism, hasatan is the 'adversary' and 'accuser' of all that is sacred. In effect, he his telling them that even as far back as the children of Abraham, the energy of the 'accuser' and 'adversary' of the holy and sacred existed. That is why his opponents were humiliated by his words of truth. However, the people were delighted that he was standing up to his opponents, and calling the religious/spiritual leaders out.
It then mentions the parable of the mustard seed and the yeast and that is well known. However, the important aspect of this passage is his mention of 60 pounds of weight. 60 is to do with the spiritual law and good deeds. So may you consider the % of your good deeds in comparison with the rest of your life.
If you take 100% of your life, does your good deeds helping others amount to 60% of it? Clearly, it is only when you are in the black with good deeds of giving, do you then become an asset that is worthy of humanity, creation and the kingdom of God. It is easy to do good for those that you love and know, like your own family and friends.
However, how many strangers have you helped, with a kind, sincere and giving heart? What value is it, when Christians, Jews, Hindu's and Muslims only help their own? As such, the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor.
Is it not true mercy when you give to those that do not benefit you in the earthly world at all? What is greater your rewards in heaven or earth?
Is it a coincidence that in 2007, it was 60 years since Israel had done their utmost to live harmoniously with their neighbors and resolve the conflict? Is it a coincidence that it was in 2007, I was sent to Israel for the second time to help Israel?
The chapter then responds to the people who ask about being saved. He tells them that few will find the narrow door. He mentions the owner of the house that gets up and closes the door. In Hebrew the door is the dalet and it is also to do with selflessness. The fact that he mentions the door also means that someone as the key. Prophet Isaiah predicted that ELIAKIM as the key and what they shut nobody can open and what they open nobody can shut.
In this text he is clearly not speaking about himself, because he is telling them what another person will say to them. He tells them that there will weeping and gnashing of teeth when they see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and all of the prophets in the kingdom of God.
He then mentions the four sacred directions and how the people will come for the feast. The Hopi also have a prophecy about the four sacred directions.
They then tell him to leave, because Herod is going to kill him. He replied, “Go tell that fox, ‘I will keep on driving out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.’ In any case, I must press on today and tomorrow and the next day—for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem!
Can you see the play on words there with FOX and PRESS and as we explained in a previous post, the press is to do with the spiritual law. What else did they press? Grapes to make the wine, my Father worked on the printing presses that provided the news. He work for newscorp and also liked wine.
He is telling the people; that after their demons have been driven out due to healing, the grapes from the vine can then be pressed, so that they can be mystics like him. Hence, why the wine is related to prophet Elijah in Jewish mysticism. Only after people have healed their own demons within, are they able to ascend to the next level of evolution. Then people move from being 'victims' to becoming 'masters' of reality.
He also tells them that no true prophet can die outside of Jerusalem. So what does that tell you about the two witnesses? In fact, what does that tell you about his own death? He then tells Jerusalem that they kill the prophets and stone them. In other words, they did not wish to hear the word of the divine, so they did their utmost to stop the prophets and the work that they were ordained to do to help the people.
It then describes himself (prophet healer) being like a hen that gathers her chicks under her wing, and as we know the hen feeds the chicks so that they can live and grow, until they can fly the nest and feed themselves. He then told the people that they would not see him again, until they can say 'Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord'.
Now the question is this, do his last words relate to the one that comes before him? The advocate that he put in charge of his community, to bring glory to his teachings as mentioned by John? The one that he called the 'owner of the house'? The book of revelation Rev 2 and Rev 3, do point in that direction.
The prophecies from Prophet Isaiah also ask 'Where is the house that you will build for me?'. My view is this, he will not come until the city of enlightenment as been built.
However, there is also a different view shared in the texts and the 'owner of the house' relates to the spiritual law again. Matthew 13 mentions the 'teacher of the law', in the 'kingdom of heaven' being like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.
Chapter 24 mentions the 'owner of the house' again in relation to the Son of Man. As we know, 150 biblical scholars at the Jesus Seminar all agree that when Jesus spoke of the Son of Man to come, he was not speaking of himself. This fact was also supported by the renowned Dead Sea Scrolls scholar, Geza Vermes. The term 'Son of Man' is simply a term of endearment for a prophet. Hence, why Prophet Ezekiel and Daniel were also called 'Son of Man'. The Gospel of Peace, also bears testimony and proves this as fact as well.
In Mark chapter 14, He sends two of his followers to go into the city, he tells them that there a person with a jar of water will meet you. The teacher asks the 'owner of the house' 'where is my guest room, where I may eat passover with my disciples'. He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready, make preparations for us there.
What does the jar of water symbolize? The water carrier.
How amazing then, that when I went to Israel, two people who owned a house came to meet me, and upstairs there is a very large room, there we ate together all of us. Six of us ate at that table during my week stay there, the six points of the star of david.
During the meal that we prepared and shared, I was given the name of one of the people from a past life, the ladies name was 'Nathaniel' and in Hebrew it means 'God as given'. No coincidence then, the American-Israeli Jewish woman that was given the name Nathaniel, lives near Nazareth, in Bethlehem.
She is a midwife and helps to birth the babies in water, she is also a Reiki healer and she was sent to meet me by her husband. The lady told me that her husband (Yemenite) was intrigued by me, due to my unconventionality, I didn't fit into any of his categories for people. While I was in Israel, they also took me to a wedding on the Sea of Galilee, near Tiberius.
However, it was not passover. In 2006, I was instructed to go to Israel in May not April. Clearly, I was meant to go to the wedding. Big smiles!
May the LORD God bless them all.
