The Vineyard of the
Lord appointed to new imperfect servants with successive authority ‘till His return’.
Isa:5:7: For the vineyard
of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel
In His parable, Jesus talks
of His Kingdom as a Vineyard a householder planted and let it out to husbandmen (OT authorities) who later became unworthy
and persecuted the householder’s servants (OT prophets) and killed His own Son (Jesus). So, He says His Father will
destroy those wicked men and let out His vineyard unto other husbandmen (Christian church authorities). To clarify this, He
goes on to say ‘The Kingdom of God’ shall be taken from you (OT authorities) and given to a nation bringing forth
the fruits thereof (i.e. Christians).
another parable: There was a certain householder,
planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a
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
to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the
took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned
Again, he sent other servants more than the first:
and they did unto
likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will
my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among
This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his
And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew
him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto
husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those
men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which
render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye
read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same
become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous
our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God
shall be taken
from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
So, this One Kingdom of God
is a successive one from the time of the Old Testament and is transferred on to the new authorities in the New testament.
This Kingdom is one that will exists at the time the ‘Lord returns’ i.e. the end time as well. The ‘servants
in authority over the house are called to be watchful at the time of ‘His return’ as well. The authority given
is then successive till the Lord’s return. (Mr 13:34-37). Who are the Reformers
or Revivalists to claim that the church has gone corrupt when the Lord has said that He has entrusted the church 'to
a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof' and thus not to some authority that
is to go corrupt. He says, He takes the Kingdom away from the unworthy and gives it over to the trustworthy.
This bestowal of authority
we see in Lk 22:24-32
And there was also a strife among them, which of them should
be accounted the
greatest. And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles
exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are
called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is
greatest among you,
let him be as the younger; and he
that is chief, as he that doth serve. For
whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that
sitteth at meat? but
I am among you as he
that serveth. Ye are they which
have continued with
me in my temptations. And I
appoint unto you a
kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; That ye
may eat and drink
at my table in my kingdom,
and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of
Israel. And the Lord said,
Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have
you, that he may sift you as wheat: But
I have prayed for thee, that thy faith
fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
M'r:13:34-37: For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who
house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and
porter to watch.
Luke 22:24-33, Christ defines what it should be ‘to be the greatest among
the twelve’ & the ‘chief among the twelve’, i.e. the greatest and the
chief among them should be the one who serves like Christ is among them as
he that serveth. He then confers the kingdom to the twelve ‘just as the Father conferred
it to the Son’ (the same authority). Then goes on to show that of the twelve, He has prayed for Peter (not said that
He prayed for all of them but ‘for Peter’) that his faith does not fail, and this Simon is the one who should
strengthen the brethren once he returns from testing times. A chief among the apostles similar to how there is an 'Arch' or
chief angel among the angels.
Kingdom entrusted to the twelve and Peter appointed to be the one who is to ‘serve’ the rest of them as the chief.
Lord’s True church is then the one in succession to the Vineyard the householder planted and one with the servants authorised
or appointed by the Lord. A church visibly seen and acknowledged by the world. The only such church known to the world
and in succession to the church instituted by the Lord Himself (the reformers all acknowledge that the Catholic church is
the one in succession) is the One True Church, His Holy Catholic church. Others preaching doctrines different from this church
is accursed as the Bible says in Gal 1:8,9.
The Kingdom or the vineyard
is taken from the husbandmen of the Old Testament i.e. the Jewish authorities after the crucifixion of the Son of the Householder
and given to the New Testament nation (Christians) of husbandmen ‘bringing forth fruits thereof’.
Where in the picture do the Pentecostals or Protestants
who left the Vineyard and formed other breakaways come in?
This is clearly mentioned in the Bible (1John 2:18-20)
about them that ‘went out from us’. i.e. they were also part of the catholic church but later ‘went from
the church’. ‘They went’ because they were not of us’. Again said, ‘they went that they might
be made manifest (or clearly shown) that they were not of us’. The same thing repeated in 1Cor 11:18,19.

but they were

made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an

went out that they which are approved may be made manifest
Not that the approved may become part of an ‘invisible church’
but that they may be made manifest or shown out.
1Co:11:18, 19: For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that
there be divisions among you;
and I partly believe it. For there must be also
heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest
St. Pauls says two things specifically
concerning those who divide the church;
Mark them; avoid them; reject.
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark
them which cause divisions
and offences contrary to the doctrine
which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Ti:3:10: A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition
be it an apostle or even an angel, come with a gospel different from the preaching of the church, they are accursed
Ga:1:8,9: But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other
gospel unto you than that which we have preached
unto you, let him be
accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other
gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
And St. John’s words;
He that biddeth him
God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not
that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an
transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ,
God. He that abideth in the doctrine
of Christ, he hath both the

receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
For he that
biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
Interpretation is for
the Holy men of God and not for the Private. False teachers shall come who 'privily' i.e. through private interpretation,
shall bring in damnable heresies, ; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. Interpretation is for the
church guided by the Holy Spirit.
2Pe:1:19-21; 2:1, 2; 3:16-17:
We have also a more sure
prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take
heed, as unto a
light that shineth in a dark place, until
the day dawn, and
the day star arise in your hearts:
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is
of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not
in old time by the will of man: but
holy men of God
spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. But there
were false prophets also
among the people, even as there
shall be false teachers among you,
who privily shall
bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that
and bring upon themselves swift
destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways;
by reason of whom the way of truth shall
be evil spoken
Accidental or mere coincidence; same as then,
likewise now. They (the false teachers) ‘wrest, ‘all’ Paul’s epistles as they do also the other scriptures.
2Pe:3:15-16: And account
that the longsuffering of our
Lord is salvation;
even as our beloved brother Paul also
according to the wisdom given unto him hath written
unto you; As also in
all his epistles, speaking in
them of these things;
in which are some things hard to be
understood, which they that are unlearned and
unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures,
unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved,
seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also,
being led away
with the error of the wicked, fall from
your own stedfastness.
2 Peter chapter 1, 2 & 3 deal with false prophets
and their private interpretation. Like that time, the protestants of now ‘wrest,
all Paul’s epistles as they
do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction’. For which Peter had
forewarned saying ‘Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall
from your own stedfastness’ (3:16).
Though Protestants claim to be ‘Only Bible’
believers, they do not follow the whole Bible. They are restricted to a few verses only or rather ‘Certain Scriptura’
than ‘Sola Scriptura’. And when discussing a matter they play around and try to refute one silly matter and leave
out the rest even if there are 70 to refute.
all the religious sites on the web there are more catholic bashing sites than any other. No other Christian group is more
attacked than the Catholic church. Hundreds of sects against the One. The persecuted church,
1Jo:4:1-4: Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the
spirits whether they are of God:
because many false
prophets are gone out into the world.
Hereby know ye
the Spirit of
God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus
Christ is come in the flesh is of God (those who believe
He was flesh & blood;
of course from that of Mary) And
every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is
come in the flesh is not of God: and this
is that spirit of
antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come;
and even now already is it in the world. Ye
are of God,
and have overcome them: because greater
is he that is in
you, than he that is in the world. They are
of the world: therefore
speak they of the world, and the
world heareth them. We
are of God: he that knoweth

Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of
Anyone teaching ‘Jesus came in the flesh’
acknowledges that He was the flesh and blood of Mary. He became flesh in Mary’s womb, He is ‘the fruit of her
womb’ ; her offspring as the Bible says (Lk 1:42 & Gen 3:15). Hebrews 2:14-16 says Jesus, 'like every children are
partakers of flesh and blood, took human form' i.e. He partook the flesh and blood of whom? Mary of course, who else?
He was the flesh and blood of Mary. Mary is then not just an eggshell as protestants teach.
then as the children are
partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself
likewise took part of the same (from his
mother of course); that
through death he might destroy him
that had the
power of death, that is, the devil; And
deliver them who
through fear of death were all their
to bondage. For verily he took not on
him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of
Abraham (human flesh &
The only church accepting that Jesus came in the flesh through the flesh of
Mary is the Catholic church. The only church seen and known to all, of being in succession to the One and only vineyard of
the Lord is the Catholic church.
