• “I, JEHOVAH, AM ITS KEEPER” •


[1] ”I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.“

‭‭[John‬ ‭15‬:‭1‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


”You did divide the [Red] Sea by Your might; You broke the heads of the [Egyptian] dragons in the waters. [Exod. 14:21.] You crushed the heads of Leviathan (Egypt); You did give him as food for the creatures inhabiting the wilderness.“

‭‭[Psalm‬ ‭74‬:‭13‬-‭14‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”You brought a vine [Israel] out of Egypt; You drove out the [heathen] nations and planted it [in Canaan].“

‭‭[Psalm‬ ‭80‬:‭8‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”I will be like the dew and the night mist to Israel; he shall grow and blossom like the lily and cast forth his roots like [the sturdy evergreens of] Lebanon. His suckers and shoots shall spread, and his beauty shall be like the olive tree and his fragrance like [the cedars and aromatic shrubs of] Lebanon.“

‭‭[Hosea‬ ‭14‬:‭5‬-‭6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”Yet I had planted you [O house of Israel] a choice vine, wholly of pure seed. How then have you turned into degenerate shoots of wild vine alien to Me?“

‭‭[Jeremiah‬ ‭2‬:‭21‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

[2] ”IN THAT day [the Lord will deliver Israel from her enemies and also from the rebel powers of evil and darkness] His sharp and unrelenting, great, and strong sword will visit and punish Leviathan the swiftly fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting and winding serpent; and He will slay the monster that is in the sea. In that day [it will be said of the redeemed nation of Israel], A vineyard beloved and lovely; sing a responsive song to it and about it! I, the Lord, am its Keeper; I water it every moment; lest anyone harm it, I guard and keep it night and day. Wrath is not in Me. Would that the briers and thorns [the wicked internal foe] were lined up against Me in battle! I would stride in against them; I would burn them up together. Or else [if all Israel would escape being burned up together there is but one alternative], let them take hold of My strength and make complete surrender to My protection, that they may make peace with Me! Yes, let them make peace with Me! In the days and generations to come Jacob shall take root; Israel shall blossom and send forth shoots and fill the whole world with fruit [of the knowledge of the true God]. [Hos. 14:1-6; Rom. 11:12.] Has [the Lord] smitten [Israel] as He smote those who smote them? Or have [the Israelites] been slain as their slayers were slain? By driving them out of Canaan, by exile, You contended with them in a measure [O Lord]–He removed them with His rough blast as in the day of the east wind. Only on this condition shall the iniquity of Jacob (Israel) be forgiven and purged, and this shall be the full fruit [God requires] for taking away his sin: that [Israel] should make all the stones of the [idol] altars like chalk stones crushed to pieces, so that the Asherim and the sun-images shall not remain standing or rise again. For the fortified city is solitary, a habitation deserted and forsaken like the wilderness; there the calf grazes, and there he lies down; he strips its branches and eats its twigs. When its boughs are withered and dry, they are broken off; the women come and set them afire. For they are a people of no understanding or discernment–witless folk; therefore He Who made them will not have compassion on them, and He Who formed them will show them no favor. And it shall be in that day that the Lord will thresh out His grain from the flood of the River [Euphrates] to the Brook of Egypt, and you will be gathered one by one and one to another, O children of Israel! And it shall be in that day that a great trumpet will be blown; and they will come who were lost and ready to perish in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt, and they will worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem. [Zech. 14:16; Matt. 24:31; Rev. 11:15.]“

‭‭[Isaiah‬ ‭27‬:‭1‬-‭13‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


[3] ”For they are a nation void of counsel, and there is no understanding in them.“

‭‭[Deuteronomy‬ ‭32‬:‭28‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


”Return, O faithless children [of the whole twelve tribes], says the Lord, for I am Lord and Master and Husband to you, and I will take you [not as a nation, but individually]–one from a city and two from a tribal family–and I will bring you to Zion. [Luke 15:20-22.]“

‭‭[Jeremiah‬ ‭3‬:‭14‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


”In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed). For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death). And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished forever) in and unto victory. [Isa. 25:8.]“

‭‭[1 Corinthians‬ ‭15‬:‭52‬-‭54‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]
