The Lord comes to open up the Scriptures to our understanding through the Spirit of Truth that speaks His words (the “angels”….the sayings…the messages) of life and spirit through those people that the Lord will send.
He interprets the writings/sayings of Moses and the prophets and the apostles in their heavenly meaning. Jesus sends His human, earthly messengers to speak His spiritual heavenly words (the “angels”) in the Spirit to the churches of men where there is currently no understanding. He that has an ear to hear is to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The Day of Judgment comes when we hear His voice speaking His messages to our ears. How we respond with our words to the hearing of His words determines our judgment.
Some will hear and come forth and do well. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart will bring forth good things out of his mouth while the evil will bring evil things out.
Matthew 12:35-37 KJV (35) A good man out of the good treasure of the
heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil
treasure bringeth forth evil things. (36) But I say unto you, That
every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof
in the day of judgment.
Whoever believes on Him should not abide in “darkness”….responding in envy, strife, hatred towards what we hear and towards the speaker of those words.
John 12:46-48 KJV (46) I am come a light into the world, that
whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. (47) And if
any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came
not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Some will hear and reject Him and not receive His words as they will not conform to what church men have been preaching (the word of men) for centuries and believed to be true by many. They will think that the “old” is better and seek to hold onto those things and will go about defending them in their wrath towards what they will hear the Spirit saying.
(48) He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that
judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in
the last day.
It is by our own words that will come out of our own mouths in our response to the hearing of His interpretation of the Scriptures that we shall either be justified or condemned.
(37) For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou
shalt be condemned.
The condemned will not enter in to understand. The wicked shall not understand. They will remain “outside” the heavenly knowledge of our Lord for they will reject what they hear and speak evil words toward the hearing of His words. The Scriptures stay in “parables” to their understanding.
Matthew 13:34-36 KJV (34) All these things spake Jesus unto the
multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
(35) That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet,
saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which
have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
Jesus will send the “multitude”…the riotous group that will reject His words…away while His disciples (learners) will be able to understand His words as they come to Him…doing what He commands us to do: have love for one another. He will come into the “house” and dine with us in the supper of the Truth.
(36) Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and
his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of
the tares of the field.
The parables of the kingdom of Heaven in Matthew 13 deal with the situation of the separation of wicked from among the just as they will respond very differently to the hearing of His words (the “angels”). The “angels” shall come forth and sever the wicked from among the just and shall cast them into the furnace of fire where there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. The wicked will not believe in what they hear while the righteous will believe His words.
At the end of this age…..In the judgment of the wicked, the wicked shall not have understanding and will continuously speak evil words which will bring them torment.
Their own wickedness shall come upon their own heads in their judgment. Their own words shall condemn them and bring them torment….wailing. The tongue is a fire as they will rage….gnashing their teeth… against His words that they will not agree with in their unbelief and will rage against the righteous who will believe in what they hear.
Matthew 13:49-50 KJV (49) So shall it be at the end of the world: the
angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
(50) And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be
wailing and gnashing of teeth.
The “angels”…His words of life and spirit….shall be heard by all churches and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that trip us up (the doctrines and commandments of men…their handwriting of church dogmas) and all of those who will do iniquity towards what they hear.
Matthew 13:41-46 KJV (41) The Son of man shall send forth his angels,
and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and
them which do iniquity;
The wicked will lash out towards the hearing of His words and will not have peace. They will be “tormented” in the presence of the “holy angels” (Revelation 14:10) as they will not believe in what they hear and will rage against it in their judgment.
(42) And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be
wailing and gnashing of teeth.
But the righteous shall believe and respond in love towards what they hear the Spirit saying to the churches. They shall “shine forth as the sun” in the kingdom of their Father as they will be found doing His will at the hearing of the Lord’s voice. The difference between the wicked and the righteous shall be seen as the righteous will shine while the wicked walk in the darkness of their evil ways.
We shall then discern between those who do the Lord’s will and those who do not serve Him (yet they say they do serve Him).
(43) Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom
of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
The righteous will shine forth in their response to the hearing of His voice and will be found serving Him while the wicked rage in their unbelief against what they will hear the Spirit saying in this coming time. The wicked will say that they “know God” but will show that they do not know Him by the evil that they will speak in response to the hearing of His holy “angels”…His holy words.
Malachi 3:16-18 KJV (16) Then they that feared the LORD spake often
one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of
remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and
that thought upon his name.
The righteous shall shine forth as compared to the wicked who will continue to do and speak evil. The righteous shall be His and He will take up His “jewels”…His treasure….and will spare them.
(17) And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day
when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his
own son that serveth him.
The righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of the Father while the wicked will not. The difference shall be readily seen at the hearing of His words by the responses of people. His words shall reveal what is already hidden in the hearts of every person who shall hear His voice.
(18) Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the
wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
The “man” is the Lord who comes to speak His words to the churches. His words shall reveal what is the hearts of people whether it be a good treasure or not. Those who will respond with good things will be His. The Lord goes and “sells” all that He has and buys that field.
He sells off the “wicked” who will bring forth bad things out of his evil heart and He buys the righteous. The righteous shall inherit the earth….the “field”….and all families of the earth shall be blessed through the righteous believers (Genesis 12:3).
Matthew 13: (44) Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure
hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for
joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
He “sells” off the wicked. The wicked shall be a “ransom” for the righteous and the transgressor for the upright. He sends away the “multitude”….the rebellious group that say they know God but deny Him with their evil works at the hearing of His voice. They will not do the will of the Father as He sends them away…as they perish from off the earth. They will not inherit the earth but will die in their sins….in the fire of their tongues that will not cease from evil speaking.
Proverbs 21:18 KJV (18) The wicked shall be a ransom for the
righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.
Again, the parables of the kingdom of Heaven show us the coming separation of the wicked from the righteous in the churches of men.
The Lord seeks those who are “goodly pearls” when He comes to speak His words of life and spirit to our hearing ears. When He finds one of “great price”, He sells all that He had (sells off the wicked) and buys it….the righteous who will be found doing His will at the hearing of His voice.
Matthew 13: (45) Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant
man, seeking goodly pearls: (46) Who, when he had found one pearl of
great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
The righteous will be of a contrite and lowly spirit towards the hearing of His heavenly words. They will tremble at His words and will do His will. They will rejoice at the hearing of His words.
Towards this man will He look: to him that is “poor”….poor in breath….poor in words…. and of a contrite spirit….humble. The righteous shall fear Him and speak very few words…using their breath sparingly…. towards the hearing of His Spirit of Truth. The righteous will give His Spirit a place of rest with them. Such a man is of a “great price” to Him.
Isaiah 66:1-2 KJV (1) Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne,
and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto
me? and where is the place of my rest? (2) For all those things hath
mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to
this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite
spirit, and trembleth at my word.
The person who is in the sight of God of “great price” is one that has a meek and quiet spirit. Such a person is a “goodly pearl” that stands out from among people who are not of a meek and quiet spirit.
1 Peter 3:4 KJV (4) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in
that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet
spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
The righteous will hear and be found humble….having “little strength” towards the open door of utterance that speaks His heavenly words.
The wicked will not be found humble and will use “strength” in their multitude of words that will come out of their prideful mouths towards the hearing of the Word of Truth. They will not answer when He calls them. When He speaks, they will not hear and will do evil before His eyes and will choose that which He does not delight in.
Isaiah 65:12-16 KJV (12) Therefore will I number you to the sword,
and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye
did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before
mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.
His servants shall “eat” of the Word of Truth and “drink” in what the Spirit says and be satisfied while the wicked shall go hungry and thirsty as they will reject what they will hear in this coming time: His revealed Word of Truth. The righteous shall rejoice in what they hear while the wicked will not in their unbelief.
(13) Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall
eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye
shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be
His servants (who will do His will at the hearing of His voice) will sing of heart. They will rejoice at what they hear.
The wicked shall instead cry for sorrow of heart and shall howl for vexation of spirit. They will not be able to receive His words and His words will cause them grief in their unbelief of them. They will be tormented in the presence of the “holy angels”…His holy words that they cannot receive and will not rejoice when they hear them. their own words will bring them torment as they reject His words.
(14) Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall
cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.
The Lord “sells” off the wicked and buys the righteous.
(15) And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the
Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name: (16)
That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the
God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God
of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they
are hid from mine eyes.
