The Jewish People Still Reject the Counsel of Their Own Prophets
Who Prophesied of Jesus Christ, the Only One Who Can Save Their Lost Souls!
One of the most heartbreaking scriptures that can be found in the Word of God is the following verse from the gospel according to Matthew. These words were spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ almost two thousand years ago.
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. (Matthew 23:37-39)
Please read the words above carefully, and listen to what the creator of all things is saying. Jesus the Christ [Messiah] is telling the people of Israel that they had killed, and stoned, the prophets which were sent to them. Then Jesus went on to say that He had often wanted to gather them under his wings, but they were not willing to come to Him. It is important to realize that Jesus was not just talking about His limited time here on earth, and His ministry to Israel during that time, but was talking about His ministry to them since their very inception. For it was the eternal Christ who sent the prophets such as Jeremiah and Ezekiel to warn the children of Israel for countless years to return unto Him and to amend their wicked ways. In the parable of the vineyard [Matthew 21:33-46] the Lord Jesus Christ spoke in similar terms when He described Israel as the husbandmen [gardeners] who stoned and killed the servants that were sent to them, including the Son of the householder [God] who is Christ. The servants were sent to gather the fruit from the field which the Householder [God] was expecting. The Lord then spoke this word to those Jewish religious leaders who stood before Him:
Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. (Matthew 21:43)
The Lord had declared that the kingdom would be taken from the Jewish people and given to a another nation which would bring forth the fruits which the Lord desired. That nation is the nation that Peter spoke about here:
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10)
This holy nation is presently made up of Jewish and Gentile believers in Jesus Christ. Not only that, but it is a SPIRITUAL nation and entrance into THIS NATION is through Jesus Christ alone. Not only that but THIS NATION can be called a SPIRITUAL TEMPLE, and Jesus Christ IS the chief cornerstone, and every TRUE believer IS a living stone within that very same Temple!
