A Convenient Memory
Matthew’s expectations were not uncommon. Most of the Jewish people then and still today are longing for a Messiah who will bring in the glorious Messianic Kingdom. The expectations are for Israel to live in peace and security and the Messiah’s leadership will be recognized and respected by all of mankind.
Matthew was only partially correct. One day Messiah Yeshua will bring in the Messianic Kingdom, but Matthew’s memory conveniently forgot Yeshua’s warning just a few days earlier.
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
‘The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the Lord’s doing,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’?
“Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it. And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”
PRAY ISRAEL WILL LEARN ALL OF GOD’S PROMISES AND WARNINGS ABOUT THE END OF TIMES.
