The Penny And Yeshua Salvation
Do we know the origin of the penny and does it have any significance today? What has become of the value of Yeshua Salvation? Here is a different look at what has happened to Salvation in the Church with the watered down "go-spel". Has a spell been place on the whore houses of today?
The Small Brown Penny In the Dirt Of The Shop Floor
One day while working in the workshop, I kept on walking over and stepping on a little brown penny in the dirt of the shop floor. I kept on seeing this penny and finally stopped and picked up this penny out of the dirt on the floor and looked at it with interest, when the Scripture came to my heart about how YAHSHUA is going to pay us all a penny at the end of the day.
The Parable Of The Laborers In The Vineyard
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 20:1-16
1 ¶ For the Kingdom of heaven is like to a man that is a householder, which went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard.
2 And when he had agreed with the laborers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
4 And said to them; Go you also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and says to them, Why stand you here all the day idle?
7 They say to him, Because no man has hired us. He says to them, Go you also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall you receive.
8 So when even was come, the master of the vineyard says to his steward, Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last to the first.
9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and you have made them equal to us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do you no wrong: did not you agree with me for a penny?
14 Take that yours is, and go your way: I will give to this last, even as to you.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with my own? Is your eye evil, because I am tov?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
So I started to look at this penny in-depth to get a better understanding in terms of today and how it has been changed over the coarse of time of two thousand years when YAHSHUA used it in the above Scripture. The Greek word used here is denarion or the Latin word denarius meaning "containing ten", was a Roman silver coin in the time of YAHSHUA and the apostles, worth being equal to ten "Asses", a number afterward increased to sixteen Asses. This was a standard days pay in YAHSHUA's time.
So how does this become a penny today?
We must understand that this denarius coin was silver of about an inch in diameter, and in England up to about 1800 there was a coin of approximately the same size made out of silver and was also used for a days pay. This coin is called a penny. It was changed in about 1800 to a bronze coin, and this has been change to the little brown penny made with steel with a very thin coating of copper that we have today that is worth almost nothing at all.
The Devaluation of the Penny Of Salvation
Lets look at this in another way. What is the average days pay here in the US today? We know the minimum pay is $7.25 an hour at the present time of 2015. So what is the average pay today? With the few at the high end of $40 to $50 and hour and the low end with the most, we can say that the average is about $10 to $12 and hour, and than the average length of the work day is about 8 to 10 hours. So we can estimate approximately the daily pay. The average would be about $100 per day. So how many pennies are there in $100? 10,000 pennies. Wow! What a devaluation of the penny or the days pay that YAHSHUA spoke of two thousand years ago, ten thousand times. Remember this is to give you an idea of the natural to help you understand the spiritual.
Salvation Been Devalued Ten Thousand Times
So has Salvation been devalued ten thousand times from the time of YAHSHUA two thousand years ago. How so? Look at the watered down "Go-spel" they preach today in the whore houses of the world. Everything is acceptable and justified for Salvation today, but the true yeshua of YAHSHUA can hardly be found. So I see the direct parallel in the natural to spiritual. Just as they throw away the pennies today, so do people throw away their true yeshua (Salvation) for the husk of this world.
Please guard your yeshua with all your heart, because it has become of little value in todays fast YAHWEH hating world. Does not the Scripture talk about in the end times there will be a great falling away, the love of many waxing cold, and no love for the Truth. So is YAHWEH going to send a strong delusion so that HE YAHWEH will damn them that love not the truth.
Many people have wasted their substance (faith) with riotous living, and when the famine arose for the word of YAHWEH, they then went and filled themselves with the husks that the swines eat. These are the five foolish virgins that did not buy their oil when they were meant to, but were at ease in Zion allowed everything to block their vision of the most precious Kingdom Of YAHWEH and the pure golden Menorah lamp that YAHWEH gave them when they were born again. They have also followed YAHSHUA in vain for the fishes and the loaves and not for wisdom and understanding. You see it is getting an understanding that makes you wise. **read this**
Five Wise And Five Foolish
There are five wise and five foolish virgins in the world all the time. The five wise got a understanding that made them wise and thus knew that they had to take their yeshua seriously and have to work out their yeshua with fear and trembling. But the five foolish love and buy the world and things of the world and call them blessings, but are in total bondage by them. Can I name a few? Cell phones, computers for games and frivolous junk, shinny cars, surf the web, Youtube, Children, and many more things that take you away from serving YAHWEH in YAHSHUA. Are you not bought and paid for in full by the blood of YAHSHUA? Yes I am here trying to warn you of what danger you are in. You see you did not buy the gold tried in the fire. GILYAHNA - REVELATION 3:17-18 Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you may see. What will the eyesalve of YAHWEH do? It will let you see the Kingdom and then give you understanding. The gold is the best material to use to make a vessel to hold the oil that you need to buy so that at midnight when the oil run out and the lamp go out you will have the pure oil to take you through to the morning or the end of the fourth watch.
