 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; PARABLE OF THE NET...  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Parable of the Net  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; [INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID]  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 13:47 ; ";Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 13:48 ; When ; it was full, the fishermen pulled it ; up ; on ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; shore. ; Then they sat down and collected the good fish ; in ; baskets,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; but threw the bad away.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 13:49 ; This is how it will be at the end of the age. The ; angels  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; will come and separate the wicked from the righteous  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 13:50 ; and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there ; will  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; This ; is not the ";Gospel net";, as it is often called. After the ; one  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; pearl ; is ; taken up, the end of the age begins. This ; parable ; falls  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; into the completion of the age. The net is let into the sea, ; which,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; as ; we have seen before, represents the nations, the ; Gentiles. ; The  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; parable ; refers to the preaching of the ";everlasting gospel"; ; as ; it  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; will take place during the Great Tribulation (Revelation 14:6-7).  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; REV 14:6 ; Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth[INVALID]to ; every  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; nation, tribe, language and people.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; REV ; 14:7 ; He said in a loud voice, ";Fear God and give ; him ; glory,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The ; separating of the good and bad is done by the angels. All ; this  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; cannot refer to the present time nor to the Church, but to the ; time  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; when the Kingdom is about to be set up. Then angels will be used, as  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; is ; so ; clearly seen in the book of Revelation. The wicked ; will ; be  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; cast into the furnace of fire, and the righteous will remain in ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; earth ; for the millennial kingdom. It is the same ";end of ; the ; age";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; described in Matthew 24:3-35...  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:3 ; As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; came to him privately. ";Tell us,"; they said, ";when will this happen,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Signs of the End of the Age  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; [INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID]-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:4 ; Jesus answered: ";Watch out that no one deceives you.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:5 ; For ; many ; will come in my name, ; claiming, ; 'I ; am ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Christ,' and will deceive many.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:6 ; You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see ; to ; it  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; that ; you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the ; end ; is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; still to come.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:7 ; Nation ; will rise against nation, ; and ; kingdom ; against  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:8 ; All these are the beginning of birth pains.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:9 ; ";Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put ; to  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:10 ; At that time many will turn away from the faith and ; will  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; betray and hate each other,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:11 ; and many false prophets will appear ; and ; deceive ; many  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; people.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:12 ; Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of ; most  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; will grow cold,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:13 ; but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:14 ; And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached ; in ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; whole ; world ; as a testimony to all nations, and then the ; end ; will  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; come.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:15 ; ";So ; when ; you see standing ; in ; the ; holy ; place ; 'the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; abomination ; that causes desolation,' spoken of through the ; prophet  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Daniel[INVALID]let the reader understand[INVALID]  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:17 ; Let ; no one on the roof of his house go ; down ; to ; take  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; anything out of the house.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:18 ; Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:19 ; How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant ; women  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; and nursing mothers!  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:20 ; Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the Sabbath.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:21 ; For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; beginning of the world until now[INVALID]and never to be equaled again.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:22 ; If ; those days had not been cut ; short, ; no ; one ; would  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:23 ; At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here ; is ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Christ!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:24 ; For false Christs and false prophets ; will ; appear ; and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect[INVALID]if ; that  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; were possible.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:25 ; See, I have told you ahead of time.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:26 ; ";So ; if ; anyone tells you, 'There he ; is, ; out ; in ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; desert,' do not go out; or, 'Here he is, in the inner rooms,' do not  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; believe it.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:27 ; For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:28 ; Wherever there is a carcass, there ; the ; vultures ; will  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; gather.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:29 ; ";Immediately after the distress of those days ";'the ; sun  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; will ; be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; ; the ; stars  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.'  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 24:30 ; ";At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear ; in  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will ; see  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; glory.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:31 ; And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; heavens to the other.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:32 ; ";Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as ; its  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; twigs ; get tender and its leaves come out, you know that ; summer ; is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; near.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:33 ; Even so, when you see all these things, you know that ; it  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; is near, right at the door.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:34 ; I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly ; not  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; pass away until all these things have happened.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 24:35 ; Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will ; never  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; pass away.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; PARABLE OF THE LEAVEN...  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Parable of the Leaven (Yeast)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; [INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID]-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 13:33 ; He ; told them still another parable: ; ";The ; kingdom ; of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; of flour until it worked all through the dough.";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; This fourth parable has been a battleground for commentators. ; There  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; is ; no ; need ; for confusion if the authority of ; the ; Scriptures ; is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; recognized and allowed to interpret the parable. The popular concep-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; tion[INVALID]-that the leaven is the Gospel of Christ, and that this Gospel  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; is ; to pervade and permeate the world until the world is ; saved[INVALID]-is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; without scriptural basis. Not only does such an interpretation place  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; our Lord in the position of contradicting all His other parables ; by  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the ; use ; of this one, but it also destroys the whole Bible ; as ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; source ; of ; authority ; in the matter of its ; own ; understanding ; and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; interpretation.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Now, ; comparing ; spiritual things with spiritual, it is ; found ; that  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; leaven ; is ; never once used in the Word of God except as a ; type ; of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; corruption. ; In connection with the first Passover, Israel was ; com-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; manded to put away leaven out of their houses (Exodus 12:15).  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; EXO ; 12:15 ; For seven days you are to eat bread made without ; yeast.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; anything ; with ; yeast in it from the first day through ; the ; seventh  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; must be cut off from Israel.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; In Leviticus 2:11, the Law provided that no meal offering should ; be  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; made with leaven.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; LEV 2:11 ; ";'Every grain offering you bring to the LORD must be ; made  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; without ; yeast, ; for you are not to burn any yeast or ; honey ; in ; an  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; offering made to the LORD by fire.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; In ; Leviticus 6:17, in the law of the meal offering, it is ; written,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ";it must not be baked with yeast....it is most holy";.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; LEV 6:17 ; It must not be baked with yeast; I have given it as ; their  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; share of the offerings made to me by fire. Like the sin offering and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the guilt offering, it is most holy.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The ; two wave loaves of the Pentecostal offering ; (Leviticus ; 23:17)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; were ; baked with leaven because they typified the Church of God ; and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; signified that we are accepted in the Beloved despite our indwelling  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; evil nature, for He was made sin for us (2 Corinthians 5:21).  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; LEV ; 23:17 ; From wherever you live, bring two loaves made ; of ; two-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; tenths of an ephah of fine flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offer-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ing of firstfruits to the LORD.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 2CO ; 5:21 ; God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that ; in  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; him we might become the righteousness of God.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; In ; His ; personal ministry our Lord often used leaven as a ; type ; of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; evil. ; At ; one time His disciples forgot to take a supply ; of ; bread  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; with them.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Jesus told to them...  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 16:6 ; ";Be ; careful,"; Jesus said to them. ; ";Be ; on ; your ; guard  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 16:7 ; They discussed this among themselves and ; said, ; ";It ; is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; because we didn't bring any bread.";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; But Jesus explained His words...  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 16:12 ; Then they understood that he was not ; telling ; them ; to  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; guard ; against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching ; of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the Pharisees and Sadducees.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; In Luke 12:1 the Lord Jesus said to His disciples, ";Be on your guard  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; against the ";yeast"; of the Parisees, which is ";hypocrisy";.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; [INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID][INVALID]  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; LUK 12:1 ; Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak ; first  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; to his disciples, saying: ";Be on your guard against the yeast of the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; And ; in Mark 8:15 He also warned them against the leaven ; of ; Herod,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; evidently meaning lust for worldly power.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAR 8:15 ; ";Be careful,"; Jesus warned them. ";Watch out for the ; yeast  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; of the Pharisees and that of Herod.";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Leaven, ; then, ; is ; a figure of corruption. Now, who ; is ; the ; woman  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; hiding ; the leaven in the meal? It is significant that this ; is ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; only mention of a woman in the seven parables of the chapter. She is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; easily ; recognized ; as the false professing ; church, ; corrupting ; by  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; false ; doctrine and sinful conduct, the food of the children, ; which  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; is ; the ; Word of God. Hiding the leaven in the meal, she ; leaves ; it  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; there, ; and the corrupting process continues until the true food ; is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; all ; gone, ; being ; utterly ; lost ; in ; the ; repulsive ; and ; poisonous  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; mass[INVALID]-the whole lump leavened.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; It was against this awful danger that Paul later warned the Galatian  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; churches, ; which ; were receiving the Judaizing ; teachers. ; With ; the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Lord's parable of the leaven in mind, he wrote...  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; GAL ; 5:7 ; You were running a good race. Who cut in on you ; and ; kept  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; you from obeying the truth?  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; GAL ; 5:8 ; That kind of persuasion does not come from ; the ; one ; who  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; calls you.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; GAL 5:9 ; ";A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.";  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; GAL ; 5:10 ; I am confident in the Lord that you will take ; no ; other  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; view. The one who is throwing you into confusion will pay the penal-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ty, whoever he may be.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; And ; again when the Corinthian church was indulging in sinful ; prac-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; tices, the apostle wrote...  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO ; 5:1 ; It is actually reported that there is ; sexual ; immorality  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; among ; you, and of a kind that does not occur even among ; pagans: ; A  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; man has his father's wife.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO ; 5:2 ; And you are proud! Shouldn't you rather have ; been ; filled  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; with grief and have put out of your fellowship the man who did this?  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO ; 5:3 ; Even though I am not physically present, I am with you ; in  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; spirit. And I have already passed judgment on the one who did ; this,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; just as if I were present.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO 5:4 ; When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus and ; I  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO 5:5 ; hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature ; may  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO ; 5:6 ; Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that ; a ; little  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; yeast works through the whole batch of dough?  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO 5:7 ; Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch ; with-  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; out ; yeast[INVALID]as ; you really are. For Christ, our Passover ; lamb, ; has  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; been sacrificed.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 1CO 5:8 ; Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the ; yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread ; without ; yeast,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the bread of sincerity and truth.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; And ; so ; it is seen that in Scripture language ; leaven ; never ; means  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; anything ; good, and it ";always"; stands for evil and corruption. ; The  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ones to whom our Lord spoke were Jews, and they certainly understood  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; what ; was meant by leaven. No Jew would ever dream that leaven ; used  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; in ; illustrating ; some power or process could ; stand ; for ; something  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; good; leaven to the Jews ";always"; meant evil.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; And &
