The Parable of the Net

 

The Parable of the Net


Matt 13:47-50 Again, the kingdom of Heaven is compared to a drag net thrown into the sea, and gathering together of every kind; which, when it was filled, drawing it up on the shore, and sitting down, they gathered the good into containers, and they threw out the rotten.


So it will be in the completion of the age: the angels will go out and will separate the evil from the midst of the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; there will be weeping and gnashing of the teeth.

Note: The Kingdom is compared to a net. There is good and bad fish in the net. Good fish are clean food and and the bad are unclean.

We are like the Jews were in Yeshua's time. They wanted the coming Kingdom when the fish are sorted. They didn't know they were bad fish and had to repent and keep the Covenant with the Father.

Keeping the Covenant is not works to be saved, no more than a spouse not committing adultery is works to get married, but because they are in a marriage covenant.

The sign of the Covenant is the Sabbath. God tested Israel with the manna to see if they would keep the other Commandments. Israel failed to keep the Covenant and was put under law.

Accepting Messiah is accepting the New Covenant. Yeshua said He is the Master of the Sabbath. The Jews added their rules of how to follow the Sabbath. Those rules, Messiah didn't follow, just His Fathers Commandments.
