THE VINE OF THE EARTH
Bertrand L. Comparet
The Bible is a true
reflection of life, both lives as it should be, and would be if Yahweh's
commands were obeyed, and life as it actually is under the present satanic world
order. Therefore it must and it does, contrast the true with the false, for each
element of Yahweh's good plan, Satan has made his deceptive counterfeit. The
Bible warns us of this and tells us of what to be aware, and of whom to be
aware. To comfort His people, Yahweh also tells us how it will ultimately work
out; much of this is in parables, both in the Old and New Testaments. One of
these is the parable of the vines, Yahweh's own vine and the vine of the
Yahweh has called His people
Israel His sheep in some parables; He also calls them His vine in this parable
in Psalm 80:8-11. "Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast
cast out the heathen, and planted it. Thou preparedst room before it, and didst
cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land. The hills were covered with
the shadow of it, and the boughs of it were like the goodly cedars. She sent out
her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river." Notice this was
Yahweh's own planting. It was His own vine and it should have brought forth the
right kind of fruit. If nothing but His vine had been there, we can presume that
it would have done so.
But trouble developed, for
the vine eventually began bringing forth the wrong kind of fruit. Yahweh
consistently develops this parable of the vines, we find the next stage of it in
Isaiah 5:1-7. "Now I will sing to My well beloved a song of My
beloved touching his vineyard. My well beloved hath a vineyard in a very
fruitful hill: and he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and
planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and
also made a winepress therein; and he looked that it should bring forth grapes:
and it brought forth wild grapes! And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men
of Judah, judge I pray you, between me and My vineyard. What could have been
done more to My vineyard that I have not done in it? Wherefore, when I looked
that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?"
What is this vineyard, which
has so, disappointed Yahweh? We find the explanation of this parable in Isaiah
5:7. "For the vineyard of Yahweh is the house of Israel, and the men of
Judah His pleasant plant." Therefore, the people of Israel constitute
Yahweh's vine, we find many places where this parable is continued.
Yahweh's people Israel have
disappointed Him, by failing to bring forth the fruit, which He could rightfully
expect, from the people of His own selection. How did this come about? For the
explanation, we turn to the prophet Jeremiah. The Bible is always true to its
own law of the two witnesses; everything must be proven by the testimony of at
least two witnesses. Therefore you will never find the entirety of any matter in
the writings of just one prophet.
Self-styled scholars write
learned and ponderous volumes of commentaries on the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah
etc. However, they have never been able to give a true explanation of it,
because you cannot find the entirety of any one message in the book of just one
prophet. You must find the rest of it in the writings of some other prophet, who
perhaps wrote centuries earlier or later.
We will continue with the
parable of the vines in Jeremiah 2:21. "Yet I planted thee a noble
vine, wholly a right seed: how then are thou turned into the degenerate plant of
a strange vine unto Me?" The word translated strange, is the Hebrew
word zoor, meaning an alien of another race. The trouble was that those of
another race had infiltrated what should have been Yahweh's own vineyard,
containing only His people Israel. Of course this other race produces fruit of
its own kind, even when it is among Yahweh's own people Israel.
That this has been the
source of the corruption is emphasized in Jeremiah 2:25. "Withhold
thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst! But thou said,
"There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them
will I go." The word strangers are translated from the Hebrew word zoor,
meaning persons of another race. This has been our history from ancient times
even to this very day.
We have opened our gates to
those who hate everything we have held as an ideal and above all, they hate our
Redeemer, Yahshua. They don't come to adopt our principles and pursue our
ideals; they come in their greed, to take of our prosperity. They soon
discovered how to corrupt us in ways that rapidly increases their wealth and
In ancient times, the
ancestors of these mixed ones led us into worship of stone idols. Today they
have led us into the worship of the most immoral among the movie stars and the
most corrupt among the politicians. We haven't raised them to our level, for
this was never possible, they have dragged us down to their level. What fruits
are now brought forth in Yahweh's vineyard? Pornographic books and movies, the
utter degradation of art, literature and music. There is rioting in the streets,
the ever-increasing tyranny of power drunk politicians, whose corruption and
even treason has become so commonplace that they no longer excite indignation.
What will be the outcome of
this? If we don't get rid of this alien influence and turn back to Yahweh,
terrible judgment must be the result. There is no future, no hope, except in
restoring our loyalty, our worship of Yahshua. John 15:1-8 tells us, AI
am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch that beareth
fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now are ye clean,
through the word, which I have spoken unto you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As
the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine: no more can
ye, except ye abide in Me. I am the vine, ye are the branches; he that abideth
in Me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do
nothing. If a man abideth not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and he is
withered; and men gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it
shall be done unto you. Here in is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;
so shall ye be My disciples."
We find powerful figures of
Jews in our government using all their power to disown our Savior Yahshua. They
even remove, from all government departments, any mention of the name of Yahweh.
These Jews use the pretense that our constitution forbids it! As they well know,
our nation was founded by Christians to be a Christian nation. For that purpose
only, did these pilgrims leave their comfortable homes in a civilized land and
come to a wilderness peopled by hostile savages. All of our original thirteen
colonies required belief in the divine inspiration of the Bible and the
Christian religion, as a condition of election or appointment to public office.
For more than a century and a half, beginning with the very men who wrote the
constitution, we have lived under that same constitution in what the Supreme
Court has recognized as a Christian nation.
The words of the
constitution have not changed, in this respect, since it was written. How can
its meaning ever been reversed, it cannot and it hasn't. Men desire to abolish
the foundation on which we alone could build that greatness and freedom, our
Christian heritage. They seek to substitute for Yahweh's vine, the vine of the
The first mention of this is
found quite early in the Bible in Deuteronomy 32:31-33. "For their
rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges: For their
vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah; their grapes
are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter; their vine is the poison of
dragons and the cruel venom of asps."
The cities of Sodom and
Gomorrah were inhabited by another race, to which the Israelites were not
related. The grapes of this vine of Sodom are the individual members of that
race; Yahshua identified them as the children of the devil in John chapter 8.
In Ezekiel 16:1-3
Yahweh says to the people of Jerusalem, "Son of man, cause Jerusalem to
know her abominations, and say, thus saith Yahweh unto Jerusalem: Thy
birth and nativity is of the land of Canaan: thy father was an Amorite, and thy
mother an Hittite."
Yahweh could not truthfully
have said that to any Israelite, so He didn't say it to any Israelites. Yahweh
said it to the people of Jerusalem, the capital city; there is a great
difference. Today you could truthfully say to the people of Washington, D.C. our
capital city, ninety percent of your population are Negroes and most of the rest
are anti Christian." However, you could not truthfully say this about the
United States as a whole. Out of our 250 million population, about 190 million
are white Christians; only about 11% are Negroes.
Today our capital city is
not a fair sample of the nation as a whole, exactly as it was in Jerusalem when
Ezekiel wrote. In Jerusalem, people of other races, Amorites, Hittites and other
Canaanites, had infiltrated and wormed their way into positions of power. They
became the advisors surrounding the king and the ruling classes of Jerusalem
these weren't Israelites. In fact, they were driving the true Israelites out,
the true members of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin.
This is confirmed in Ezekiel
11:14-15 where we read, "Again the word of Yahweh came unto me saying,
Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all
the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of
Jerusalem have said, Get you far from Yahweh unto us is this land given in
The inhabitants of Jerusalem
were driving out the entire house of Israel, showing that the inhabitants of
Jerusalem were not members of any of the tribes of Israel. We find this
confirmed in Isaiah 3:8-9 which says, "For Jerusalem is ruined, and
Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against Yahweh, to
provoke the eyes of His glory. The show of their countenance doth witness
against them: and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe
unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves."
Their faces could recognize
these evil Canaanite Jews in Jerusalem. "The show of their countenance
doth witness against them." This could not be true if they were
Israelites, because they would have faces like all the other Israelites. If you
wanted to condemn the ruling class of China, you couldn't say that their faces
could recognize them. They would have the same kind of Mongolian faces as the
rest of the Chinese. The people who were in power in Jerusalem, who were
responsible for the evil customs, which they induced the nation to follow, told
the entire house of Israel to go far away. These evil people told Israel that
the land of Jerusalem was given to them, these people didn't look like
Israelites, and could be recognized by their faces.
The true Israelites, of the
northern kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judah, were the ancestors
of the Anglo Saxon, Scandinavian and Teutonic people of today. They all looked
basically the same. Not only is this a logical deduction, but also we have
further proof in the ancient monuments, which portray the Israelites. These
monuments always show the Israelites as having straight noses, typical of Anglo
Saxons. Other monuments, when they show Hittites or other Canaanite people,
always show a hook nosed face.
Naturally such Canaanite
faces would stand out in contrast to the Anglo Saxon, Israelite faces of
Jerusalem. Even today these Canaanite faces stand out in Washington, D.C.,
London, New York, Los Angeles and other governmental or commercial cities. These
are the people that can be recognized by the mere sight of their faces. These
were the people that told the entire house of Israel to get out of Jerusalem, as
these Canaanites were taking the land for themselves.
Canaanites weren't part of Yahweh's own vine, for they never were any part of
true Israel. They had secured positions of wealth and power in Israel and Judah.
They were corrupting the nation so that it was no longer bearing the sort of
fruit, which Yahweh expected from His vine.
These Canaanite infiltrators
are also the same people against whom Yahweh spoke in Isaiah 57:3-4. In
the Hebrew He calls these Canaanites, "children of inborn transgression, and
a false seed." This is why in Jeremiah 2:21 Yahweh says to the
kingdom of Judah, "Yet I planted thee a precious vine, a wholly right seed:
how then didst thou change thyself towards Me into the degenerate planting of
the strange vine?" The word strange is the Hebrew word nokriy, meaning a
person of another race.
Clearly these people, whom
Yahweh recognized by the sight of their faces, this strange or alien vine, could
not share the final great destiny of Yahweh's own vine, the people of Israel. In
Ezekiel chapter 15 we read, "And the word of Yahweh came unto me
saying, Son of man, what is the vine tree more than any other tree, or than a
branch which is among the trees of the forest? Shall wood be taken thereof to do
any work? Or will men make a pin of it, to hang any vessel thereon?"
"Behold, it is cast
into the fire for fuel: the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of
it is burnt. Is it fit for any work? Behold, when it was whole, it was fit for
no work: how much less shall it be fit yet for any work when the fire hath
devoured it and it is burned? Therefore, thus saith Yahweh: As the vine tree
among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will
I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And I will set My face against them;
and ye shall know that I am Yahweh, when I set My face against them. And I will
make the land desolate, because they have committed a trespass, saith
Note this is directed
against those same inhabitants of Jerusalem, those who can be recognized by
their hook nosed faces. These were the ones that ordered the true Israel to get
out and let them take over the land of Jerusalem. Did you notice Yahweh told
Ezekiel these inhabitants of Jerusalem had committed a trespass?
When you go onto somebody
else's land, without any right to do so, then you are committing a trespass.
Yahweh says that these inhabitants of Jerusalem had committed a trespass; they
had no right to be where they were. This further identifies them as being no
part of the real Judah or any other tribe of Israel.
Both the Bible and ancient
history tell us Yahweh kept His word about driving this Canaanite people out of
Jerusalem, where they had no right to be. These Canaanites endured two terrible
sieges when the Babylonian armies came and surrounded Jerusalem. Many thousands
of them were killed. Other thousands died of starvation and pestilence before
the Babylonian army finally captured the city. We can feel reasonably sure that
the Babylonians, angered by the long fighting and the losses they also suffered,
were none too gentle with those they captured. As Yahweh said, "They shall
go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them".
Of those who were not taken
into captivity at that time, some fled into Egypt, where Yahweh prophesied
another disaster would come upon them, this did happen. Those who remained in
the land at the time of the siege of Jerusalem, by the Romans in 70 A.D.,
endured starvation, which reduced them to cannibalism. Over a million of them
died in that siege and the capture of Jerusalem.
There remains to be
completed Yahweh's final destruction of this counterfeit vine of the earth.
The destruction will be completed in connection with the Russian invasion of us
and Jerusalem, which is so clearly prophesied in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39.
By this attack on us, Russia injures Yahweh's own vine, and Yahweh's judgment
and vengeance is set in motion.
In Joel chapters 1 &
3 we read, "For a nation is come up upon My land, strong and without
number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a
great lion. He hath laid My vine waste, thither cause Thy mighty ones to come
down, O Yahweh. Let the heathen be awakened, and come up to the valley of
Jehoshaphat (Yahweh's judgment), for there will I sit to judge all the heathen
round about, Put Ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down;
for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great."
This is developed more fully
in Revelation 14:14-20 where we read, "And I looked; and behold, a
white cloud, and upon the cloud sat one like unto the Son of man, having on his
head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out
of the temple, crying in a loud voice to Him that sat upon the cloud, Thrust in
Thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for Thee to reap; for the harvest of
the earth is ripe. And He that sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the
earth; and the earth was reaped."
another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp
sickle. And another angel came from the altar, which had power over fire; and
cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle saying, Thrust in thy
sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are
fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the
vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of Yahweh.
And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the
winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six
This gathering out of those
Canaanites, who make up Satan's counterfeit vine, is the same event, which
Yahshua spoke of in His parable of the tares and the wheat in Matthew chapter
13. This is where Yahshua said that the tares, poisonous weeds growing among
the wheat, were the children of the devil living among the children of Yahweh.
The angels will gather out these tares at the time of the harvest of the earth.
Don't think this will be a
peaceful process; it is the bloodiest kind of war. We read in Revelation
19:11-16 about this same treading of the winepress of the wrath of Yahweh.
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse; and He that sat upon
him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make
war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He
was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word of
Yahweh. And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite
the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron; and He treadeth the
winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahweh. And He hath on His
vesture and on His thigh a name written, King of Kings."
In Isaiah 63:1-4 is
recorded a vision that Isaiah received. "Who is this that cometh from Edom,
with dyed garments from Bozrah? This that is glorious in His apparel, traveling
in the greatness of His strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
Wherefore art Thou red in Thine apparel, and Thy garments like him that treadeth
in the wine vat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was
none with Me: for I will tread them in Mine anger, and trample them in My fury;
and their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments, and I will stain all My
raiment. For the day of vengeance is in Mine heart, and the year of My redeemed
Thousands of years have
consistently demonstrated it is impossible for the mixture of good and evil to
exist together. To have partly Yahweh's own vine and partly Satan's vine of the
earth, to grow together without Yahweh's vine becoming corrupted by the presence
of the evil seed among them, is impossible. The great realities have not changed
at all. The principle is the same, whether these evil people cheat you out of
shekels or dollars. We will never be able to develop the way Yahweh planned for
us until Yahweh's own vine can grow alone, with no intermixture of the vine of
the earth. No matter how drastic the methods must be, the removal of the corrupt
infiltrators is the greatest of mercy.
In the Apocrypha, II
Esdras 9:20-22 boils it all down to a very few words. Yahweh has been
talking with Esdras, who was asking Him about the events which were to end the
age. Yahweh explained to Esdras, "So I considered the world; and behold,
there was peril because of the devices that were come into it. And I saw, and
spared it greatly; and have kept Me a grape of the cluster, and the plant of a
great people. Let the multitude perish, them which were born in vain; and let My
grape be kept, and My plant: for with great labor have I made it perfect."
In the kingdom of Yahweh,
for which we hopefully wait, there is no room for the satanic counterfeit vine
of the earth. The removal of this evil will allow Yahweh's children to live
happy, productive lives in the paths of righteousness, which Yahweh has marked
out for us.
