RECEIVING A PENNY A DAY: RECEIVING CHRIST?
Mt 20:2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a PENNY A DAY, he sent them into his vineyard.
Mt 22:19 Shew me the TRIBUTE MONEY. And they brought unto him A PENNY.
Mt 18:25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take CUSTOM OR TRIBUTE? of their own children, or of strangers?
Mt 18:26 Peter saith unto him, Of STRANGERS. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
Mt 18:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the FISH THAT FIRST cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a PIECE OF MONEY: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
Mt 20:3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
Mt 20:4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and WHATSOEVER IS RIGHT I will give you. And they went their way.
Mt 20:7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and WHATSOEVER IS RIGHT, [that] shall ye receive.
Lu 10:35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out TWO PENCE, and gave [them] to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and WHATSOEVER THOU SPENDEST MORE, when I come again, I will repay thee.
Mt 20:10 But when THE FIRST came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man A PENNY.
Mt 20:11 And when they had received [it], THEY MURMURED AGAINST the goodman of the house,
Lu 5:30 But their scribes and Pharisees MURMURED against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?
Joh 6:41 The Jews then MURMURED at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
Joh 6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, MURMUR not among yourselves.
Joh 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples MURMURED at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
1Co 10:10 Neither MURMUR YE, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
Mt 20:12 Saying, These LAST HAVE WROUGHT [but] ONE HOUR, and thou hast made them EQUAL unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
Mt 20:13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me FOR A PENNY?
Re 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for A PENNY, and three measures of barley for A PENNY; and [see] thou hurt not the OIL and the WINE.
REWARD: OF JUDGMENT OR SALVATION (CHRIST)?
Re 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man ACCORDING AS HIS WORK SHALL BE.
Mt 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall REWARD EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS WORKS.
1Co 3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall RECEIVE HIS OWN REWARD ACCORDING TO HIS OWN LABOUR.
Heb 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a JUST RECOMPENCE OF REWARD;
2Pe 2:13 And shall receive the REWARD OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, [as] they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots [they are] and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
Isa 3:11 Woe unto the wicked! [it shall be] ill [with him]: for the REWARD OF HIS HANDS SHALL BE GIVEN HIM.
Re 18:6 REWARD HER EVEN AS SHE REWARDED YOU, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
LAST FIRST, FIRST LAST: SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS VS RIGHTEOUSNESS? CHRIST IS THE FIRST AND THE LAST.
Mt 20:8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them [their] hire, BEGINNING FROM THE LAST UNTO THE FIRST.
Mt 20:14 Take [that] thine [is], and go thy way: I will give unto THIS LAST, even as UNTO THEE.
Mr 9:35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man DESIRE TO BE FIRST, [the same] SHALL BE LAST OF ALL, and servant of all.
Mt 19:30 But many [that are] FIRST shall be LAST; and the LAST [shall be] FIRST.
Ge 48:18 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this [is] the FIRSTBORN; put thy right hand upon his head.
Ge 48:19 And his father refused, and said, I know [it], my son, I know [it]: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly HIS YOUNGER BROTHER SHALL BE GREATER THAN HE, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.
Mt 22:14 For many are CALLED, but few [are] CHOSEN.
The parable of Matthew 20 appears to be showing that the Corporate Church (CC) was tasked with bringing the Gospel and to receive, in exchange, a Penny (tribute, money, Christ). However God brings judgment to the UNSAVED body and they murmur against Him, supposing they were First and therefore should be saved. But God repays it with the reward of unrighteousness that is the JUDGMENT side of Christ; thus fulfilling the Bible’s principle that those who desire to be FIRST (CC) shall be LAST and the LAST (Elect) end up being first.
