MattithYAHU 20:1-16

Yahusha teaching about the Kingdom –The Restored Kingdom- through a parable


“For the reign of the heavens (Kingdom of Heaven – God’s movement upon the earth, which is happening at present)

is like a man, a householder (God/YAHUAH)

who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. (The workers are His People, His vineyard is His Torah.)

And when he had agreed with the workers (His People, Israel both Houses/Israel and Judah during Israel’s United Kingdom)

for a silver piece a day (the reward for the work of Knowing and Teaching His Torah),

he sent them into his vineyard. (He sent them into His Torah to learn His Ways and Principles)


And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the market-place (just prior to Messiah coming – the work of His Torah being brought NOT much to the nations, the times of the Prophets, Rabbis, Pharisees, Saducees, the time following the dividing of the Kingdom of Israel, into the House of Judah and the House of Israel/Joseph/Ephraim)

And said to the, “You too go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I shall give you.’ And they went.

“Having gone out again about the sixth and ninth hour, he did likewise. (After Messiah came 100 AD – 1990’s, we have been and are become idle, lazy. The “church” has NOT studied, learned, adored His Torah – His teachings and instructions and Ways of Life – His Principles)

And about the eleventh hour (the current time near the end of this age),

having gone out (the movement of Elohim, the reign of the heavens, Kingdom of heaven, God’s movement upon the earth),

he found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?” (This is us! Wake up o’sleeper)

“They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ (This is us, saying “we are hungry, no one will teach us your Word, your Torah)

He said to them, ‘You too go into the vineyard (HE is telling us – ‘go into my Torah! Do it now, for your life and reward),

and whatever is right you shall receive.’ (We WILL receive life from Torah/Yahusha)

And when evening came, the master of the vineyard said to his manager (The Father instructs the Spirit to call us, ALL of us),

‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.’ (House of Israel is last to come BACK to Torah – return, now re-gathering, while the House of Judah was first to Torah and has been working in His Torah for centuries)

And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour (re-gathered Israel),

they each received a silver piece.

And when the first came (House of Judah, includes Benjamin and Levi)

they thought they would receive more. But they too received each a silver piece.

And when they received, it they grumbled against the householder,

Saying, ‘These last have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.’(a reference to the Holocaust)

The House of Judah is and will say “why are you making them House of Israel/Joseph/Ephraim equal to us, we have been with You and Your Torah from the beginning?

But he answering, said to one of them, ‘Friend, I do you no wrong. Did you not agree

with me for a silver piece? The gift of eternity with Elohim Yahusha is the reward for all who hold fast, guard, and do His Ways.

Take yours and go. But I wish to give to this last man (the House of scattered Israel)

as also to you (House of Judah).

‘Is it not right for me to do what I wish with my own? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’

Thus the last shall be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”


Common Hebraic Concept of the Ages from Creation to the Everlasting

(These are approximate)

Early in the morning – Creation/Adam to Abraham/Moses – 0-2000 yrs

The third hour – 0900 in the morning – Abraham/Moses to Messiah 2000 – 4000 yrs

The sixth and ninth hour – 1200, 1500, or 3:00 pm: Messiah – 4000-6000 yrs

The Eleventh Hour – Messianic Age – Now!  The time of restoration
