I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times
Matthew 18:21 " Peter came to Jesus. He asked, "Lord, how many times should I forgive my brother when he sin against me? up to seven times ". Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but 77 times. Revelation is the key to the kingdom of heaven(;) it helps people to enter into God mystery to get rest. Because there is not rest with out revelation . Proverbs 29:18 " Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction." Revelation also helps for more knowledge. Hosea4:6 say " My people are destroy, because they do not know me". That's why knowledge is required into the church, it brings light and sanctifying church[us]. John17:17 " Sanctify them by[d] the truth; your word is truth. We recall that in the scriptures all is about Jesus-Christ. Hebrews10:7 " Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll— I have come to do your will, my God.
God used code languages to communicate with people which is the allegories, a riddle and the parables. According to the Book of Matthews 13:10-13 "The disciples came to him, They asked, why do you use stories when you speak to the people? He replied," you have been given the chance to understand the secrets of the kingdom of heaven. It has not been given to outsiders." We recall that Lord Jesus-Christ was not different to Moses because he used to speak like him. Deuteronomy 18:18
" I will raise up for them a prophet like you" listen again what Jesus said in Matthews13:52. " He said to them," Every teacher of the Law who has been taught about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house. He brings new treasures out of his storeroom as well as old ones." One more time Matthews 5:17 " Do not think I have come to get rid of what is written in the Law or in the prophets. I have not come to do that. Instead, I have come to give full meaning to what is written" Moses was stammering that is why God put his brother Aaron to help in the communication with Pharaoh Egypt King. The stammering of Moses represents the law which Aaron have to explain that to Pharaoh.
Aaron=High Priest=Jesus Christ=Minister=holy Spirit. " Jesus has gone there ahead of us, and he is our high priest forever, just like Melchizedek." Hebrews 6:20 At church Aaron is represented by the holy spirit who Jesus sent to reveal God. For that reason, before the church to received the holy spirit, it was necessary that the Prophecy of Exodus 22:1 perform. "Whoever steal an ox or a sheep and slaughters it or sells it must be pay back five head of cattle for the ox and four sheep for the sheep"
Ox steal represents Jesus Christ and Five head of Cattle represents the five ministers of Ephesians 4:8-11 " Christ chose some of us to be apostles, prophets, missionaries, pastors, and teachers,"
So who is the person who stole the Ox? it is heaven, who stole it according to Acts 1:11. " Men of Galilee, they said, why do you stand here looking at the sky, Jesus has been taken away from into heaven. But he will come back in the same way you saw him go."
We are going to use three points to explain this passage of Matthew 18:21 the first one is jubilee, Second is marriage, Third is chandelier. So let us makes some explanation.
After 49 years, the tenth day of the seventh month, it is the party of trumpet; which represents the day of the expiation. The all add up 50 years. And the number 50=5 symbolizes five grace ministries. Ephesians4:11" so Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors, and the teachers." The five grace ministries was given to connected Church[Rachel] to heaven[Jacob]by the gospel. It represents also Levy the third son of Jacob because Levi means adhesion. Genesis29:34 "When Leah’s third son was born, she said, “Now my husband will hold me close.” So this son was named Levi." Levi is also a mediator between sky and earth[church] according to the Book of 1Timothy 2:5-6. " There is only one God. and there is only one go-betwen God and human beings. He is the man Christ Jesus. He gave himself to pay for the sins of everyone. That was a witness given by God at just the right time".
We understand that, after 49 years Levi has to appear to sanctify people and to brings them in the kingdom family. John8:32 "Then you will know the truth. and the truth will set you free." That means freedom [heaven]. So speaking about the jubilee; is telling about the freedom we received in Jesus Christ. We recall that the twelve son of Jacob are the shadow of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Israel thought that the redemption benefits only to them. That's why, Peter said to Jesus; it is necessary to forgive only seven times. Isaiah 63:16 saying " But you are our father, though Abraham does not know us, or Israel acknowledge us; you, Lord, are our father, our redeemer from of old is your name." The [Nations]church obtained an underserved favor from God. Daniel 9:24-27" “Seventy ‘sevens’[c] are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish[d] transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.[e]
25 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One,[f] the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing.[g] The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’[h] In the middle of the ‘seven’[i] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple[j] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.
You will see basically nothing about the Nations [church]. the prophecy speaks only for Israel. Nevertheless in passage 26 the scriptures telling about the anointed one; which means Jesus died.
Let's talk about the marriage. Genesis 29:18 " Jacob was in love with Rachel. He said to Laban, I will work for you seven years to get your younger daughter Rachel." In this context Jacob represents Jesus.
Rachel represents the church [Nations] and lea represents Israel
Jacob's marriage with the girls of Laban, revealing the work of the redemption according to 1 Corinthians 7:14. "The husband who is not believer is made holy through his believing wife. And the wife who is not believing is made holy through her believing husband." We understood that Jacob went there to freed them from family's idolatry. Genesis31:30 "Now you have gone off because you longed to return to your father's household. But why did you steal my gods." Romans3:23-24" for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus."
You will also notices that Jacob loves more Rachel than Leah. So that John 3:16 " For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Be careful the world that God love is the church. John17:9" I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for there are yours.
Seven years equal one week and one week means grace's time according to the Book of Isaiah 61:2 " to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor."
Jacob's marriage revealing the number fourteen 7+7=14 mean redemption or a year of God's favor. The refused of Laban to let Jacob spend a night with Rachel; means that the redemption has to be complete before Jacob took Rachel as his wife according to the Book of Galatians 3:24 " In fact, the Law was our teacher. It was supposed to teach us until we had faith and were acceptable to God." Remember that Leah[Israel] represents Moses's law and Rachel[Church] means grace." Ephesians 2:14-19 got up to help us understand the meaning of the passage of Galatians. " Christ has made peace between Jews and Gentiles, and he has united us by breaking down the wall of hatred that separated us. Christ gave his own body 15 to destroy the Law of Moses with all its rules and commands. He even brought Jews and Gentiles together as though we were only one person, when he united us in peace. On the cross Christ did away with our hatred for each other. He also made peace[b] between us and God by uniting Jews and Gentiles in one body. 17 Christ came and preached peace to you Gentiles, who were far from God, and peace to us Jews, who were near God. 18 And because of Christ, all of us can come to the Father by the same Spirit. You Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens with everyone else who belongs to the family of God. " Ephesians 2:14-19. Presently,the church is with Jacob [Jesus Christ]; because we are in grace's time that's means love's time, according to the Book of the song of Salomon 1:1-5.
" This is Solomon’s
most beautiful song.
Kiss me tenderly!
Your love is better than wine,
and you smell so sweet.
All the young women adore you;
the very mention of your name
is like spreading perfume.
Hurry, my king! Let’s hurry.
Take me to your home.
The Young Women Speak:
We are happy for you!
And we praise your love
even more than wine.
Love time revealing also the chandelier which enlighten the church. So that we're saying that the real chandelier is Jacob[ Jesus Christ] according to the Book of John 8:12
" Once again Jesus spoke to the people. This time he said, “I am the light for the world! Follow me, and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the light that gives life.” Remember that Jacob shared the week between Rachel and Leah.
After grace's time, the church will not be any more on the earth.
That led us see the parable of ten virgin, the wise virgin filled her lamp with oil. But the crazy virgin missed opportunity to be with the groom. therefore the foolish virgin will remain on earth and be persecuted. Oil represents the Holy Spirit which bring by the revelation of the lord Jesus Christ. We recall that Jacob will return to see Leah [Israel]again. But before heading to Israel; he will be preceded by two witness who going to preached the gospel to Israel people according to Malachi 3:1-4 " “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord, as in days gone by, as in former years."
Remember God's love endure forever
