8/05/16 Bound for the Wedding Feast
“Few really understand what is happening. I am choosing those who are bound for the wedding feast. I am searching within the ranks of those I have called and choosing those who desire spotless garments. Few are cleaning their garments. Few can even look Me in the eye. Few even desire to leave their fields to come to the selection process, much less surrender to My will. What a sad day it will be for those who are too busy to hear My heart.”
Matthew 22:11-14 NIV
11) “But when the King came in to see the guests, he noticed a man who was not wearing wedding clothes.
12) ‘Friend’, he asked, ‘how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ The man was speechless.
13) “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.’
14) For many are invited but few are chosen.”
Ah, those clean robes again! If you ever want to do a study that will change your outlook on how God perceives things within His church, do a study on clean and dirty robes and wedding garments. There is even a verse in Revelation about a group whose garments were cleaned while going through the great tribulation.
Rev. 7:13-14 NIV states: Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?” 14) I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
This is some pretty eye–opening stuff!
Tell me truth, Lord, even if it hurts,
