i feel that God is telling me somthing with this verse from the bible. will he destroy the wicked tenants of this planet and give the planet to others? possible others like aliens?? what do you think?


Luke 20:9-19English Standard Version (ESV)

The Parable of the Wicked Tenants
9 And he began to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard and let it out to tenants and went into another country for a long while. 10 When the time came, he sent a servant[a] to the tenants, so that they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. 11 And he sent another servant. But they also beat and treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. 12 And he sent yet a third. This one also they wounded and cast out. 13 Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.’ 14 But when the tenants saw him, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir. Let us kill him, so that the inheritance may be ours.’ 15 And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” When they heard this, they said, “Surely not!” 17 But he looked directly at them and said, “What then is this that is written:

“‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone’?


this part in particular is what im talking about . What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others.”

Could be. The bible is very confusing and the main stay of quotes from it are usually not used in the correct context. Like turn the other cheek and no room in the inn.

The tenants being the Jews. It's a parable about Jesus (The owner's son). The vineyard is taken from one people and given to everyone else... taken from the builders (the Jews) and given to the rejected cornerstone (the non-Jews).

Let's use something a little more clear. The same parable, if you will:

33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude – Matthew 21:33–46


My one question is.. What far off country did God go to during that time? Maybe the Americas? Food for thought.


I imagine, the people he's referring to that inherits the vineyard may be the US? Possible.

Possibly the time at the right hand sitting......

The story of Joseph too

He told his family he had a dream they were all bowing to him so they left him for dead......then........

In these days, we also have Micah. 5...

Op may be getting. That message, it's time to fly away for the gentiles coz Micah 5 says when we see the Virgin sky prophecy, then it's time for Israel to be back in the forefront of Gods eye.....meaning the church age is over......meaning they flew away, like mentioned in Psalms90

Check that verse against the ending of Revelation, which evidently shows humans (if only a select group) as the inheritors of the "new heavens and new earth".

Sounds like a lot of retconning to me. Sounds like a parable that was added to the text long after these events supposedly took place in order to appear to be some kind of prophecy. Of course, the other "vineyard" was Rome. So my guess is that somebody from Rome added the story to move the blessing of God from the Jews to the Romans. Constantine?

People in those days didn't have any concept of journalistic integrity or objectivity.

the land owner is God.

The land is Israel.

The religious elite were the vine keepers since they became a nation under Joshua.

They didn't listen to God's messengers as they violated his laws and giving to God what was God's.

Then he, in his love gave his only begotten son whom they killed.

When he returns he will wipe them out and restore the kingdom with Jesus Christ on the Throne forever.

This scripture in Luke reminds me of what is said at Isaiah 13:11-12.

I will punish the world for its evil,
the wicked for their sins.
I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty
and will humble the pride of the ruthless.
I will make people scarcer than pure gold,
more rare than the gold of Ophir.

It just sounds like a population reducer not an alien replacement. Jesus mentions about a future period where the sun is darkened before he comes back to earth. Isaiah 13 also mentions about the sun be darkened as well.

why would God wait 2000 years then to give the earth to other tenants? the verse talks about somthing that will take place upon the death of his son, the last he sent to them. when they kill him (if) God will be very mad and well....he will not wait 2000 years.

Through out the bible Israel is constantly referred to as the vineyard, Rome never referred to as a vineyard, maybe a whore
Yet no doubt with all your time spent studying the bible...

The other vineyard was Rome?
Journalistic integrity? Really?

What a world we have become
Aliens, really
Nowhere in the bible outside of demons are aliens discussed, anywhere
Yet you find a single parable about Israel and the tenets of Israel and imagine aliens
Other parables tell similar storys, no aliens

well if God were to destroy the tenants of this earth which are humans and he says he will give it to others, who could the others be?

The owner is God.

The vineyard is his people (Israelites)

The tenants are the priests.

The servants are God's prophets (Moses, Elisha, John, etc).

The heir is Jesus.

This was a message from Jesus to the Pharisees. He knew they were planning to kill Him, and their punishment would be losing all influence over the Israelites and new priests (the disciples) spreading word of true salvation.
