Where’s your wedding garment? 0913

Where’s your wedding garment?

“And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, ‘See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.’ ’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests. ‘But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ ‘For many are called, but few are chosen.’ ” (Matthew 22:1-14 NKJV)

Those who God elects, He regenerates, He saves, He Justifies, He sanctifies, He glorified.

We are forgiven. Our sins are covered by Jesus’ blood. Our sins are washed away by Jesus’ blood, our temple (body) is filled with the Holy Spirit. We are clothed in Christ. He is our wedding garment. We become His bride.

The jews were invited, but many refused to come. Other good and bad people were invited. These non-jews (gentiles) were invited, but many refused to come. One came but wasn’t wearing a wedding garment. He was arrested, judged and punished in hell, most severely! He is the false teacher, false prophet, counterfeit Christian. He was never saved, continued to be worldly, disobedient to God’s word, corrupting God’s standard, and filled with an unholy dishonest spirit, that of the antichrist.

So who are YOU?

Are you part of the crowd that does their own thing, considers yourself Christian but rejects God’s lordship over you?

Or are you part of the crowd that does their own thing and judges God by the hypocritical people who claim to follow Him, and reject God’s call?

Or are you part of the crowd that does their own thing, fails to meet God’s standard, and knows that you can’t, so you doubt God’s promise?

Even the bad people invited off the street were welcome, once they put on the wedding Garment. Call on Jesus and be saved!

“For many are called, but few are chosen.”

In Christ,
