The Wedding Feast



The Gospel is an invitation to salvation through Christ.

It is like an invitation from a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son.

Many were invited but many of them refused to come.

The invitation was made more explicit, comprehensive, and intensive.

But many continued to make light of it and went their ways.

Some even got angry, seized the servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them.

*******

The king was furious.

He sent out his armies, destroyed the murderers, and burned up their city.

********

Many were invited to the kingdom to heaven.

But many refused to come.

They ignored the Good News and made fun of it.

They persecuted the Church.

*******

The Almighty God would be angry.

He would bring about His Judgment Day,

He would punish every single one of them,

And bring the world to the end.

********

The wedding is ready.

But many of those who were invited were not worthy.

********

The invitation was then extended to everyone who would come.

There was no discrimination; everyone was invited.

********

Everyone is invited to the kingdom of heaven.

So let us come!

*******

There was a man who didn't put on a wedding garment.

He came but he wasn't not ready for the wedding.

*******

So it is with us.

We must get ready for the kingdom of heaven.

*******

The salvation is offered to everyone who would come.

But many refuse to come.

Some make light of the gospel.

Many come.

But they are those who come unprepared.

*******

It is a wedding feast for the Son of God.

Would you come?

Would you come unprepared?

*******

For many are called, but few are chosen.

Are you one of the chosen ones?

*******

Come.

So, tell me - if you know - what's The Wedding Garment? Because, those still in "Spiritual Babylon" don't know it....

I'll give you one hint. It's found in Malachi Chapter 4 - among numerous other places. Do the research, I think you'll be surprised....

Besides, if I told you, you'ld never believe me.
