Gone for a Long Time

“Then [Jesus] began to tell the people this parable: ‘A certain man planted a vineyard, leased it to vinedressers, and went into a far country for a long time” (Luke 20:9).
The man is God the Father. The vineyard is Israel, and the vinedressers are the Jews. The far country is heaven.
God had been away, so to speak, for a long time, and finally He sent His blessed Son Jesus Christ to gather up the fruit of the vineyard, but the people rejected Him, and now the vineyard has been given to the world.
Are you working in the vineyard of the Lord, which is the church?
