Luke 13:31-35 ¶ The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee. And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected. Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Not all the Pharisee’s (P’rushim) were against Yahushua. Some folks think that they were trying to frighten Him into Judea so that the Sanhedrin would be able to exercise control over Him.  These P’rushim may have thought enough of Him to warn Him.

Remember some of these Pharisee’s came to place their faith in Him like Paul did so it is possible that they were just there to warn Him that Herod wanted Him killed. King Herod had already had John the Baptist killed by this time but he really did want to see Yahushua perform a miracle.  Maybe it was a weakness or his own human curiosity on his part we don’t really know. Yet King Herod also considered Yahushua a threat as a dangerous leader of the Jewish people. Yahushua let them know in no un-certain terms that He would not be swayed from following God’s plan.

When He said,  “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”, we see two things here.

Yahushua is talking about a time of His return so we know He isn’t talking about the structure of the Temple being desolate even though forty years later it was destroyed by the Roman armies.  If He were talking about the Temple,  it would have become desolate sooner than forty years and even then,  that would have nothing to do with His return.

# 1 ~ He was speaking of the future generations of Israel that He was speaking to that day.  Their houses would become desolate  because they did not believe Him to be their Messiah.  Their hearts were what became desolate even some ,  still unto this day because they still do not recognize Him as their Messiah.  They do not welcome God’s Son because they seek to achieve salvation just because of ‘who’ they are,  they think that they will be saved. (Their own terms)

His  offer is the same for them as it is for anyone. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  They must come by faith.

# 2 ~  When Yahushua returns,  all Israel receives salvations promise.  Israel still includes those Jews whom He will call at this time.

I also tend to think in national terms as well that until the Jews begin to cry out in repentance for not believing in the Son that he will not return.   So this is a powerful motivator to take every opportunity to talk to the Jews about Yahushua or support ministries that reach out to the Jews.

He is not abandoning them at all.  It is they who abandoned Him by not believeing in Him.

When the corporate cry goes out, “Blessed in He Who comes in the name of Adonai,  then He will come.  All Israel must bless Israel’s Messiah.

Personally, I think this cry will go out when the tribulation of the seven years gets really bad,  like they cried out when they were treated so badly in Egypt before God sent Moshe to lead them out.

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

This is when He looked out over the city of Jerusalem. When He mentions the chicks that He would like to gather under His wings, remember He knows all the prophecies that will still come forth. He knows what is directly in store for the city of Jerusalem and He knew what was way ahead in the latter days still to come upon Jerusalem. He saw it all.

Zec 12:9-14 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;  The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;  All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.

It appears that He was overwhelmed with grief when He spoke about how the prophets were ignored. He knew right then that even those Pharisees who had brought Him this warning were in danger too. But if you look at this agriculturally,  a chicken who has baby chicks will gather her babies underneath her when she knows that danger is eminent. But like He said,  they ‘would not’ be gathered together. So their house was left desolate.

However, the nation has Yah’s promise that she has not been forsaken through the mouth of Paul.

Romans 11:1 ¶ I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

Isaiah 45:17 But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Isaiah 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.

Until the prince of peace is seated on David’s throne,  there will be no peace for anyone, in or out of Jerusalem

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Those like Paul who believed in Him then received salvations promise and are awaiting the resurrection. Those who have died since then,  who died believing that He is the Messiah are awaiting His resurrection.   Those who are still alive and have received the promise of salvation are awaiting for His return.  The 144,000  who will carry His message during the great tribulation will have received His promise of salvation in order to carry out God’s end time plan to those who have yet to receive His promise of salvation.  All of Israel will be saved.

Psalm 14:7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
