The Wedding Banquet

“The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. Matthew 22:2-3

God sent his only begotten Son Jesus to find the lost sheep of Israel and save them. But most of the Jews have rejected Jesus as there Messiah, The kingdom of Heaven was ready but Gods people rejected him.

“Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.'”But they paid no attention and went off–one to his field, another to his business.The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. Matthew 22:4-6

So Jesus sent out his disciples to tell everyone about the Kingdom of Heaven, but instead of listening they persecuted and killed them.

“Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. Matthew So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ Matthew 22:9

Since the Jewish people rejected Jesus, God opened his covenant to the Gentiles. Because of Gods grace we are now circumcised at the heart and worthy to enter The Kingdom of Heaven

He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless. Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’  “For many are invited, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:12-14

Jesus taught us many are called but few are chosen, we are all now able to enter Gods Kingdom because of Jesus atonement sacrifice on the cross. However we are still required to follow the Law of God that should be written in our hearts.

This parable that Jesus taught, perfectly explains Gods plan for all of us. We are required to be The Bride of Christ, be prepared for the Wedding Day of Judgement in Jesus Name Amen
