Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it.

Prokeimenon. Mode Plagal 4. Psalm 18.4,1Their voice has gone out into all the earth. Verse: The heavens declare the glory of God.
The reading is from St. Paul's First Letter to the Thessalonians 4:18-5:10
Brethren, comfort one another with these words. But as to the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. When people say, "There is PEACE and SECURITY," then sudden destruction will come upon them as travail comes upon a woman with child, and there will be no escape. But you are not in darkness, brethren, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we are not of the night or of darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For those who sleep sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But, since we belong to the day, let us be sober, and put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we wake or sleep we might live with him.
-Starting at verse 13 through 18 is one of the clearest NT passages on the Second Coming of Christ...The first Century document, The Didache, lists three signs that will mark the return of the Lord: (1) "the sign spread out in the heavens"-Christ and His hosts; (2) "the sign of the trumpet", and (3) "the resurrection of the dead..." For the righteous, the return of Christ is a comfort (v.18), not a threat...
-1 Thessalonians 4:13-17: But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen [a]asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who [b]sleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are ALIVE and REMAIN until the coming of the Lord will by no means PRECEDE THOSE WHO ARE [c]ASLEEP. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will RISE first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 Summary: The Thessalonian Christians had been speculating the return of the Lord and making their own predictions...Paul tells them, you have no need (v. 1) for that kind of information (indeed, it is not available!)...Does a thief in the night (v. 2) announce His coming? The disciples had gotten the same kind of answers to their questions on the Second Coming from Christ Himself (Matthew 24:36; Acts 1:6-7)...And suppose we know the end; what is this to us? Christians are called not to set dates but to make themselves ready to meet the Lord by being watchful and sober (v. 6)... Our place is to be ceaselessly aware of the primacy of the Lord's Kingdom and to have full control over our spiritual faculties...
NOTE: The Didache: https://legacyicons.com/content/didache.pdf : The UN's Slogan 2021 "Peace and Security, remember awhile back I mentioned Agenda 21: https://www.un.org/en/global-issues/peace-and-security : Agenda 21: https://www.youtube.com/c/PureBlood070/videos check out the videos on this page it's great information on Agenda 21 and UN-Great Reset mentioned in Revelation...This page is good it gets banned all the time so I know it's legit!!! Security: ἀσφάλειαaspháleia, as-fal'-i-ah; from G804; security (literally or figuratively):—certainty, safety.
-We are the Bride and Yeshua (Jesus) is our Bridegroom, and He's coming back for His Bride...Just like a regular Jewish wedding the Son never knows the time of His returning for His Bride, only the Father knows...See for ancient Jewish weddings, the Bridegroom would stay away at least a year from His soon to be Bride...The Son prepares everything and than the Father will inspect and when all is good, the Father says to His Son it's time go and get Your Bride...For two thousand years our Lord and Savior has been preparing our eternal home back in Heaven, and it seems the finishing touches are happening...I teach only to Scripture and it's clear The world will be shocked when He finally comes for His Bride...Than the world will be plunged into total darkness for Seven Years, but that time is not yet come...The Antichrist will first bring Peace and Security for 3 1/2 years, the UN is definitely the system giving birth to the Beast System...The Witnesses will have to preach for 3 1/2 years before being murdered by the Antichrist, and than the last 3 1/2 years will be really bad...Fear not and worry not, but I'm stopping here for today, and encourage everyone study your Bibles...Lots of things happening so, I need to pick up my pace...
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

The Gospel According to Luke 20:9-18
The Lord said this parable: "A man planted a vineyard, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country for a long while. When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, that they should give him some of the fruit of the vineyard; but the tenants beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. And he sent another servant; him also they beat and treated shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. And he sent yet a third; this one they wounded and cast out. Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; it may be they will respect him.' But when the tenants saw him, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir; let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.' And they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy those tenants, and give the vineyard to others." When they heard this, they said, "God forbid!" But he looked at them and said, "What then is this that is written: 'The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner'? Every one who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but when it falls on any one it will crush him."
20:9-16: In this parable, the man represents YHWH the Father, and the vineyard refers to YHWH's people...The vinedressers are the leaders of the Jews entrusted to care for the people...Each servant (vv. 10-12) sent by the owner stands for OT prophet who comes to call people back to YHWH, while the beloved son (v.13) refers to Christ Himself...When the Son is cast out of the vineyard (v.15) to be killed, this is understood on two levels: (1) that Yeshua (Jesus) was killed outside Jerusalem; and (2) That Yeshua (Jesus) was crucified by foreign soldiers, not by those of His own vineyard...The others (v.16) who later receive the vineyard are the Gentiles brought into the Church...
20:17-18: That stone is Christ: This saying illustrates the two ways of destruction...Those falling on the stone are people who suffer the effects of their own sins while yet in this life, whereas those on whom the stone falls are unrepentant people who become powder in the final judgement (JohnChr)...
"Christ is the Cornerstone and the High Priest and we are the Temple...Worship Him in both spirit and in truth, He's Coming Back For His Bride!!!"

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
"Everyone have a great day, I'm a little down in my spirit today but this too will pass...Remember when we proclaim the Lord with our lips we must keep in mind it's all about Him, not about us(Our Success is owed to Him Not Us)...What is the difference of being religious and having a relationship with the Lord...There is a huge difference, being religious goes through the motions and technically not all in...Having a relationship is the key seeing His greatness in action and feeling His overwhelming love speaks louder than words or phrases...Everything I do is for the Lord, and I will serve Him for the rest of my days and will defend His Holy Name against the false teachers and prophets!!!"

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen!
