C. What did Jesus say would happen to the unprofitable servants who aren't fruitful? Who rules in the kingdom and over whom?

D. Are there different degrees of glory, including being disqualified and found naked (without glorified body)? Who cuts the firewood?

III. Isaiah prophesies God fulfilling His covenantal promises of returning & Blessing preeminent Israel in the Land (cf Revelation)

 Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners 2 to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor [Luke 4:19 ends here] and the Day of Vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion-- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

4 They will rebuild ancient ruins and restore places long devastated; they will renew ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. 5 Aliens will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. 6 And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.

7 Instead of their shame My people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs. 8 "For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and iniquity. In my faithfulness I will reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them.

9 Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed. 10 I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.

 62:1 For Zion's sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns. 2 The Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory. called by a new name... mouth of the LORD will name. 3 You shall also be a crown of glory (ruler)  the hand work of the LORD, and a royal diadem (beauty) in the hand of your God 28:5. 4 You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; But you shall be called Hephzibah/delight, and your land Beulah/married; for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married....your God rejoice over you. 6 I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent, 7 And give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

8 The LORD has sworn by His right hand and by the arm of His strength: Surely I will no longer give your grain as food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your new wine, for which you have labored. 9 But those who have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; those who have brought it together shall drink it in My holy courts."

10 Go through, go thru the gates! Prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway! Take out the stones, lift up a banner for the peoples! 11 Indeed the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the world: Say to the daughter of Zion, 'Surely your salvation is coming; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.' (cf 40:10 reward with Him and recompense/repay before Him)

12 And they shall call them The Holy People, The Redeemed of the LORD; And you shall be called Sought Out, a City Not Forsaken.

65:20 No more infant  live but a few days, nor an old  fulfill his days; for the child shall die 100 years old, but the sinner being 100 years old shall be accursed. 21 They shall build houses and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards-eat their fruit. 22 not build and another inhabit; not plant and another eat; My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 not labor in vain, nor bring forth children for trouble; they shall be the descendants of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.

IV. Ezekiel sees God's Glory return to the temple and describes Living Water, Tree of Life,  differential priestly service in the Kgdm

 Ezk 43:5 The Spirit lifted...me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the temple. 7 "Son of man, this is the place of My throne and of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever. No more shall the house of Israel defile My holy name, they nor their kings, by their harlotry...8... they defiled My holy name by the abominations which they committed; therefore I have consumed them in My anger. 9 Now let them put their harlotry...far away from Me, and I will dwell in their midst forever. 10 describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern. 11 And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them...Write it down in their sight, that they may keep its whole design, all its ordinances, and perform them.

 44:4 He brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the temple; so I looked, and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD; and I fell on my face. 5 Son of man, mark well, see with your eyes and hear with your ears, all that I say to you concerning all the ordinances of the house of the LORD and all its laws. Mark well who may enter the house and all who go out from the sanctuary. 6 "Now say to the rebellious, to the house of Israel, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "O house of Israel, let Us have no more of all your abominations. 7 When you brought in foreigners, uncircumcised in heart and in flesh, to be in My sanctuary to defile it...offered...fat and blood, then they broke My covenant 'cse of all your abominations. 8 And you have not kept charge of My holy things, but you have set others to keep charge of My sanctuary for you. 9 Thus says Lord GOD: No foreigner, uncircumcised in heart or in flesh, shall enter My sanctuary, including any foreigner who is among the children of Israel.

 10 "And the Levites who went far from Me, when Israel went astray, who strayed away from Me after their idols, they shall bear their iniquity. 11 Yet they shall be ministers in My sanctuary, as gatekeepers of the house and ministers of the house; they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister to them. 12 'Cse they ministered to them before their idols and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity, therefore I have raised My hand in an oath against them," says the Lord GOD, "that they shall bear their iniquity (pure in heart see God), 13 And they shall not come near Me to minister to Me as priest, nor come near any of My holy things, nor into the Most Holy Place; but they shall bear their shame and their abominations which they have committed. 14 Nevertheless I will make them keep charge of the temple, for all its work, and for all that has to be done in it.

15 "But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer to Me the fat and the blood," says the Lord GOD.

16 "They shall enter My sanctuary, and they shall come near My table to minister to Me, and they shall keep My charge. 23      "And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

 45:8 The land shall be his possession in Israel; and My princes shall no more oppress My people, but they shall give the rest of the land to the house of Israel, acc to their tribes. 46:18 prince shall not take any of the people's inheritance by evicting them from their property; he provide an inheritance for his sons from his own property, so that none of My people may be scattered from his property.

24 "These are the kitchens where the ministers of the temple shall boil the sacrifices of the people

 47:1 he brought me back to the door of the temple...water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple east 7 along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. 8 into the valley. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. 9 everything will live wherever the river goes. 10 fishermen will stand by...spreading their nets. Their fish will be as fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. 12 bank of the river,,will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, 'cse their water flows from the sanctuary their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine"

48:35 All the way around shall be eighteen thousand cubits; and the name of the city from that day shall be: THE LORD IS THERE."

 V. Zechariah prophesies of the Lord of Hosts rescuing, refining,  restoring His people to Jerusalem and repaying His enemies

Zech 9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!..  daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on the foal of a donkey. 10 I will cut off the chariot from Jerusalem; The battle bow shall be cut off. He shall  proclaim peace to the nations; His dominion shall be 'from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth. 11  As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. 12  Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. I will restore double to you. 14 LORD will be seen over them 16 LORD their God will save them in That Day

12:10 And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him

13:1 In That Day a Fountain shall be opened for the house of David..inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness. 8 in all the land "two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it: 9 I will bring the one-third thru the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'This is My people'; and each will say, 'The LORD is my God.' 14:1 Behold, The Day of the LORD is coming, and your spoil will be divided in your midst

2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; city shall be taken, houses rifled, women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4 That Day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives...shall be split in two, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north half  toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee thru My mountain valley. Thus the LORD my God will come, and all the saints with You. 6 in That Day  there will be no light; the lights will diminish.

7 It shall be one day known to the LORD-neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light.

 8 That Day  Living Waters shall flow from Jerusalem, toward the eastern sea & western sea; In both summer and winter it shall occur

And the LORD shall be King over all the earth. That Day it shall be "The LORD is One", And His name One.

10 All the land be turned into a plain...Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited from...the First, Corner Gate, Tower to king's winepresses

11 The people shall dwell in it; and no longer shall there be utter destruction, but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

12 plague...LORD will strike all who fought cx Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve, eyes in sockets, tongues  dissolve in  mouths.

13 great panic from the LORD will be among them. Everyone will seize the hand and raise his hand against his neighbor's hand;

14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem. wealth of all surrounding nations be gathered together: Gold, silver, apparel in great abundance.

15 plague on the horse and mule, the camel and  donkey, and on all the cattle that will be in those camps. So shall this plague be.

16  everyone who is left of nations which came cs Jerusalem go up yearly to worship King=LORD of hosts, keep Feast of Tabernacles.

17 whichever families of earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of Hosts, on them there will be no rain.

18 if Egypt will not come up and enter in, no rain; plague which LORD strikes the nations not come up to keep Feast of Tabernacles.

20 "HOLINESS TO THE LORD" engraved bells of the horses. The pots in the LORD's house shall be like the bowls before the altar.

21  every pot in...Judah shall be holiness to the LORD of Hosts.  shall no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the LORD of Hosts.

2Pt 3:11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness...
