This Sunday I taught on the verses from the Mass and a few notes from Church Unlimited.
I have actually taught these passages recently- and will simply try and post them below.
I did talk about a few experiences that some of my friends have told me the past few weeks- and tried to connect some dots-
But the theme was being prepared for the coming of the Lord- to live our lives as Christians in a state of readiness.
Taking the gifts [talents] God has given us and using them in this life- we are the garden of God and we are here to bring forth fruit unto him.
As the bride of Christ- we honor our bridegroom when we live our lives in the light-
Walking in the light of his word and his will for us.
In the parable of the talents they were all given certain gifts- and when the Lord returns- he will judge us based on what we have done with the gifts.
We are a family- we are a garden- we are the bride of Christ himself-
And when we abide in him- when the branches abide in the vine- they bring forth much fruit.
But the fruit comes as we remain connected to the vine [root].
I also talk about an interesting dream a friend of mine had while sitting in the county jail- and how he was released early the next day.
While we don’t believe/accept every dream or vision a person has- yet to me it was significant.
I explain why on the video.
Ok- that’s a brief review of the video- below are the past teachings I did that should cover the rest-

Mark 12:25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven. Mark 12:26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? Mark 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.

Jesus teaches the parable of the vineyard [or tenants]- it comes from the song of Isaiah chapter 5.
The parable speaks about the Jewish people- and their rejection of Jesus as the promised Messiah.
A landowner plants a vineyard- puts a hedge around it- places a wine-press in it- and sets up a tower.
He then leases it out to tenants.
The Lord of the vineyard leaves- and over time he sends his men back to collect the fruit.
The people who have leased the land refuse to give the fruit.
They beat and stone those who are sent.
And finally the landowner sends his son- and they kill him.
The meaning is clear-
God sent his prophets to speak to his people [Israel] they rejected them over time- and finally kill the Son.
Remember- Jesus is teaching this- before he is crucified. [Some sites- see the rest here https://ello.co/ccoutreach87/post/6ibaev_gya4wq5ftdyn-ww ]
He predicts his own death in the parable.
