God is Thought. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks, our Godly Thoughts laid one upon another, ascending into the mind of Christ.



(Isa 5:1,2)  Now will I [“God is love” 1 John 4:8,16] sing to my wellbeloved [Jesus Christ] a song of my beloved touching his vineyard [Heb: garden] [“His chosen people” Amplif.]. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill [Heb: anointed]: And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof [stony ground], and planted it [seeded it] with the choicest vine [Heb: noble] [1], and built a tower [Heb:  rostrum (Dict: a speaker’s platform), pulpit] in the midst of it [its central purpose], and also made [Heb: to carve wood or stone] a winepress [2] therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes [Heb: ripe grapes: wine], and it brought forth wild grapes [Heb: poison berries /// a stench: stink].

1.    noble = Dict: 1. having eminence, renown, illustrious. 2. having or showing high moral qualities or ideals, or greatness of character; lofty. 3. having excellent qualities; superior. 4. grand; stately; splendid; magnificent.

2.    winepress = Dict: a vat in which grapes are trodden [by people], or a machine [a winepress] for pressing them, to extract the juice for making wine.

a.     Commentary: wine is a symbol of the Holy Spirit (i.e., your spirit made Holy – made into a capital S for Spirit) issuing forth from us (the grapes) into the cosmos (universe) to preach the good news of the Gospel of Love “to every creature” (Mark 16:15), i.e., the Great Commission. The winepress represents the unrelenting tribulation (Gk: pressure) that is pressed upon the grapes (us) by the unsaved peoples (the wood and stone) of the world.


(Isa 5:3,4)  And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem [in context, sheep], and men of Judah [in context, shepherds], judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard [“My people” Amplif.]. What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked [patiently] that it should bring forth grapes [Heb: ripe grapes: wine], brought it forth wild grapes [Heb: poison berries /// a stench: stink]?


(Isa 5:5-7)  And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard [My people]: I will take away the hedge [Heb: to shut in (for formation, protection, restraint): fence] thereof, and it [the vineyard] shall be eaten up [Heb: consumed (by fire or by eating); to be (become) brutish] [1,2]; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down [by the “brutish” way side people]: And I will lay it waste [Heb: desolate] [3]: it shall not be pruned [purged], nor digged [Heb: to hoe]; but there shall come up briers [Heb: pricking] [(pain)] and thorns [Heb: scrub or trash, wild growth of weeds]: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain [no water, no Holy Spirit, no revelations, no nourishment] upon it. [SUMMATION:] For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel [Heb: he will rule as God], and the men of Judah [Heb: celebrated] his pleasant [Heb: enjoyment: delight, pleasure] plant: and he looked for judgment [Heb: justice], but behold oppression [Heb: slaughter]; for righteousness [Heb: rightness, rectitude] [4], but behold a cry [Heb: a shriek] [a loud piercing scream].
