MORNINGTIME 2103
 
Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.  And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. 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.  And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. Matthew 21:33-39. Again, the Vineyard IS the Church that Jesus Christ Himself, started.  The workers are generally today's preachers.  And the Fruit are Salvations in Christ. EVERYTHING about properly working a Vineyard must be as precise as the Original Vineyard, EVERYTHING. You only get good quality Fruit ONLY WHEN YOU EXACTLY FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. It takes years to produce a quality product. It may take months to produce a Christian. In this day and age everyone wants instant EVERYTHING. "Salvation, it'll only take 5 minutes". Unless the Preacher takes the time necessary to read, study, and teach others the Lord's Way of building the church, THE CHURCH WILL BE OF MAN. Salvations will be of man, and those "salvations" will be just as rotten as the rest of the "church". "When all else fails, THEN read the instruction manual". Does anybody "taste the wine" to see if ALL the process of Salvation was done properly? If you don't have anyone to test, to prove, the validity of your church building process, YOU'RE BUILDING ON MAN'S WAYS AND IDEAS, you're building on rot. Without TRUTH, no one knows what rot looks like. Without known Truth, EVERYTHING looks right. Be Blessed?
