Luke 15 - The Parable of God's Love To His children

Luke 15:1 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.
  • Publicans = tax gathers
2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.
  • Pharisees and scribes murmuring, because Jesus is helping a sinners.
  • God sent us to the sinners, and to anyone who wants to hear the word of God
  • Right here is good example of man's teaching, they change GOD'S WORD.
  • If you're listens to false pastors, they teach don't go around sinners.
  • How many times have you heard a pastor teach, don't go around those sinners?
  • 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
  • Isaiah 65:4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
    5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou.
    These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.
3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
  • 100 means God's elect and the children of the promise
5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
  • When you are lost, you can always talk to God, because man will do you wrong, but God's will be there for us.
  • God cares for you and loves you
  • I didn't say, God going to give you every thing you want.
  • I said when man let's you down, God will be there to help you.
  • You have to do the work.
6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbors, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
  • The angels in heaven rejoice when you find one person that comes back to the word of God.
7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
  • Remember to help those that need God help
  • Joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth
8 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?
  • Ten means the number for ordinal perfection, is one of the perfect number, the perfection of Divine order, commencing "to begin or start", as it does, altogether new series of  numbers - the whole system - completeness of order, making the entire round of anything, it implies that nothing is wanting.
  • She's going to clean the house, until she finds the silver.
  • She finds it by light, means God's light will help us.
9 And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
  • She's shares the word of God, helping others.
10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
  • If your helping someone and they repent and receive God word, it makes you feel good and also the angels in heaven rejoice.
11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:

12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
  • Father = Our Heaven Father
  • Portion = like your money in the bank
  • He doing this to himself
13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
  • If you have money you can find friends, once the money is gone, your friends are gone.
  • He took his money, and had parties, etc..
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
  • Now all his money is gone.
  • Now he's all by himself
  • Means = If you have money you can find friends, once the money is gone, your friends are gone.
  • God's always their for you, if you love Him.
  • Once you repent and come back to God, God will always Love you and the angel rejoice in heaven.
  • What does God want?
  • God wants you to love Him.
  • What do you want from your children?
  • You want them to love you.
  • Deut 32:9 For the Lord's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
    10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
    11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
  • Bible Study hour: Song of Moses = The overcomers are singing this song
  • Bible study hour: last days
  • Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast (Satan's one world system), and over his image (biggest false revival on earth), and over his mark (following Satan or worshipping Satan), and over the number (666 number of a man) of his name (Satan), stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
  • 3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
  • Swine is lowest animal
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
  • He didn't have anything, he took and spend it on parties
  • He was eating what the pigs were eating
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
  • My servants has it better than me
18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
  • He coming back, after living the ways of the world
19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
  • He wanting to come home.
20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
  • His Father knew he had a change of heart
  • As you can see, when all man are gone, because you don't have money, etc.. the Father will take you back and embrace you.
  • Man will always let you down
21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
  • This is how it's in heaven, when one comes back to the Father
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
  • His son = has gone to hell = he's goes the ways of the world, eat and drink and be merry, doing everything against God's ways.
  • Luke 16 = Gulf in Heaven = left side = waiting place until millennium = I call it hell =  to those that can see the other side, because they don't know what's going to happen to them, I would call this hell.
  • On the right side these are with the Lord, they are happy and have no worries.
  • Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
  • He talking about the first earth age.
  • Long ago before the foundations of this world ever were, God chose us to be His servants without blame.
  • Now understand the predestination indicated here.
  • He chose the elect in the spiritual world before the foundations of this world were lain.
  • Many deep scholars find it very difficult to understand that He chose this group of people, but the elect are wise enough to understand that this is written to two levels.
  • We take that of it that pertains to us, and let them that of it which they can accept.
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
  • Are you safe and sound?
  • There's a great day coming to those that LOVE the Lord.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
  • Father always got time for you.
  • All you have to do is ask.
29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
  • His son is jealous, because he doesn't understand.
  • Don't be jealous when you see God's blessing your brothers, sister etc.. "rejoice", because after this earth age, we're going to be with the Lord.
  • Our day doesn't comes until the Lord day.
  • Ezekiel 44:27 And in the day that he goeth into the sanctuary, unto the inner court, to minister in the sanctuary, he shall offer his sin offering, saith the Lord GOD.
    28 And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their possession.
30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
  • This is again when one comes back into God's word, even the angels in heaven rejoice.
  • This is why you need to teach God's word to all
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
  • Can you understand now, God said, all that I have is YOUR!
  • This is why we need to be working for God, our  inheritance come when the Lord returns
  • Ezekiel 44:27 And in the day that he goeth into the sanctuary, unto the inner court, to minister in the sanctuary, he shall offer his sin offering, saith the Lord GOD.
    28 And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their possession.
32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
  • That what makes it all work our time, knowing the word of God is heard and their eyes are open.
  • Because this world is evil and sick, they follow Satan.
  • Anyone that goes against God, is evil, your in darkness
  • 4th trumpet = Christians will listen to man and change their beliefs and follow Satan and his children.
  • These go into darkness, no truth in them (Revelation 8)
Exactly 2520 years from the exile of Benjamin, Iceland became an independent nation.
  The first tribe to be conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh, in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.
