Parable of the Vineyard applies generally at the time of Solomon. Solomon behaves prophetically as a type of Christ. Matches the years 9991-10020 AA and more. The parable is telling a story that stretches across the time of the kings.
|Matthew (P)||Mark (P)||Luke (P)|
This parable matches the northern and southern kingdoms of ancient Israel. The first rebelled at Solomon’s death (see the next parable) but turned around and became faithful, while the southern kingdom became faithless. Matches the next parable in sequence.
The parable matches ancient Israel, from Solomon (10020 AA) to the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar’s army. It continues with the going out to search on the roads. This matches the departure of Israel from the promised land to all points. The king eventually came, Jesus, but found many who were not dressed correctly.
This story most dramatically replayed on 2001-09-11 with the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City. The workers of the vineyard were being replaced for having rejected Jesus. The financial system of the United States was slowly being destroyed.
This same story replayed again on Sunday, October 25, 2009, when another pair of suicide bombers struck in Baghdad. This time it was a pair of government buildings that were attacked. Over 150 were killed, over 700 injured.
The timing of this Baghdad attack was slightly early, but the focus appears to be on the cleanup and aftermath and not so much on the moment of the bombing itself.
A few hours later there were a pair of helicopter crashes in Afghanistan. In the first pair a Black Hawk was apparently struck by RPGs soon after takeoff. The surviving crew were rescued by the second Black Hawk flying in the pair. Then, in a second episode a pair of other helicopters struck each other in flight.
After 911 the decision was made to invade Afghanistan, and these helicopters appear to represent the entire decision making process. Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, is the same name as a city invaded by Solomon in his day, later called "good for nothing" by the king from Tyre.
Barack Obama gave a speech on Monday, September 26, 2009, at Jacksonville, Florida. In it he mentioned the process going on with Afghanistan.
And while I will never hesitate to use force to protect the American people or our vital interests, I also promise you this -- and this is very important as we consider our next steps in Afghanistan: I will never rush the solemn decision of sending you into harm's way. I won't risk your lives unless it is absolutely necessary. (Applause.) And if it is necessary, we will back you up to the hilt. Because you deserve the strategy, the clear mission, and the defined goals as well as the equipment and support that you need to get the job done. We are not going to have a situation in which you are not fully supported back here at home. That is a promise that I will always make to you.
This quote was about his decision making process on sending more troops to Afghanistan. Obama has been hosting meetings and working on Afghan strategy, and has taken heat from people like former VP Cheney who claims his slow process is causing troop loss and other collateral damage.
Obama's strategy meetings began in the weeks ahead, and match former President Bush's pre-911 planning for his invasion of Afghanistan.
Of note former President George Bush began a new job of motivational speaking, a match to his own history after 911 where he became the nation's motivational speaker. (Remember the bull horn on the rubble of 911.) This time he drew nearly 11,000 in his audience.
