Jesus compares God’s heavenly Kingdom to wedding banquet a king prepared for his son in Matthew 22:2. Many people invited agreed to come but on the banquet day all refused to attend in verses 4-5 giving many excuses. Some of the king’s servants were mistreated or killed in some cases in verse 6. The king sent his army to avenge death of servants in verse 7 extends invitations to anyone servants found so the wedding hall is full in verses 8-10. During feast the king noticed one man was not wearing wedding clothes in verse 11 but had no answer why so is thrown out from the feast “into outer darkness of weeping and gnashing of teeth in verses 12-13. Jesus ends with statement “Many called, invited but few chosen” in verse 14. One said he bought piece of land he went to see in verse 18. Another bought oxen on the way to yoke them in verse 19. Another gave excuse he was newly married so could not come in verse 20. The master of the house heard excuses was angry told servants to go to on streets, alleyways and invite “the poor, crippled, blind and lame” in verse 21.The KING is Father God and HIS Son honoured at banquet is Jesus Christ who came to save but many do not receive him in John 1:11. God sends invitation to all people but some reject Jesus as LORD so refuse to believe in Him. Many prophets, including John the Baptist and disciples murdered in Matthew 14:10. The KING’S anger, wrath, vengeance, desolation in Revelations is on all who reject salvation in Jesus, judged in Hebrews 10:29-31. Their deliberate choice to reject God’s offer by freewill choice in Luke 13:34 by excuses of permissive will of God permanently left God’s Heavenly Kingdom. The wedding invitation extends to everyone, total strangers, good, bad who “did not deserve to come in accept WORD of God sent to all not worthy of eternal life” in Acts 13:46). So GOSPEL MESSAGE Jesus taught, available to all to come just as they are. Garments of righteousness clothes people washed in the BLOOD of the LAMB. Acceptance of Jesus and repentance in HIS Blood is the means Lamb uses to makes all worthy to boldly enter PRESENCE of the KING. So to refuse to put on garment of righteousness provided means wearing old clothes unfit for the purpose of the banquet celebration. Jesus teaches conditional offer KING is obedience to HIS standard requirements to meet criteria of submission to God. God’s righteousness in Philippians 3:9 provides salvation to cover multitude of sins of filthy rags in Isaiah 64:6. Adam and Eve’s sin God took away, replaced with the skins of sacrificed animals in Genesis 3:7, 21. And in Revelation 7:14 God provides heavenly white robes washed in the BLOOD of the Lamb. The KING God provides a wedding garment of salvation for all mankind but some want things done their own way. The WAY of God is the Cross of Christ HIS only way to salvation in John 14:6. Those who refuse to submit to God’s WAY thrown out into the darkness. God sends them into an “outer darkness” eternally as Christ said, “many are invited but few are chosen.” So invitations extends to all people to hear call of God but many reject it. The world rejects Jesus so some people don’t celebrate His salvation. God judges thems as a result of their own choice to approve of rejection of Christ with dire consequences. Kingdom of heaven demands all put away their own old garments by faith to accept righteousness God provides in Christ. All those who reject God’s gift of salvation for their own “good” works will spend eternity in hell. Those who mock or ridicule God’s salvation plan by a self-righteous rejection miss Jesus cross of Calvary VICTORY. God wants all to make sure to receive God’s salvation plan to put on new garments and not retain old filthy garments of sin in God’s PRESENCE. God’s desire is seek to dwell in the HOUSE of the LORD all the days of life to behold the beauty of the LORD and enquire in HIS Temple. In time of trouble HE hides in HIS pavilion in HIS secret tabernacle and sets upon the ROCK of Ages and lifts up above enemies round about. And so offer in HIS tabernacle sacrifices of joy, sing, yes sing praises to the LORD Most High in Jesus Name says Psalms 27:4-6.
The GOSPEL OF GOD’S KINGDOM is the MESSAGE to all nations. In Romans 1:16 the GOSPEL is “to Jew FIRST,” then ALL NATIONS. First Choice Jews is GOSPEL POWER of GOD for SALVATION to ALL who BELIEVE in the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. GOD used HIS POWER to Jews first and ALL the Nations in SALVATION PLAN of GOD. Charity begins at GOD’S Home among HIS Chosen people Israel. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM is established through JESUS CHRIST KING OF Kings, LORD of Lords a Jew. GOD CHOSE Jesus as Abraham’s descendant in Genesis 12 BLESSED by COVENANT. Nehemiah 9:7 says, “GOD … Chose Abram from Ur of the Chaldeans in Iraq.” In Deuteronomy 14:2, GOD CHOSES people for HIS OWN personal possession out of all people on the face of earth.”Amos 3:2 says, “You ONLY GOD CHOSE among all families on earth.” Romans 11:28-29 says GOD’S CHOICE made them HIS Beloved for the sake of the Fathers, for Gifts and Calling of God are irrevocable.” Jews descend from tribe of Judah a son of Jacob. Tribe of Lion of Judah descendant Jesus, GOD CHOSE from the Royal genealogy of King David. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM MESSAGE in Abraham is Isaac CHOSEN by GOD to do HIS WORK and establish HIS KINGDOM on earth. SALVATION BY GOD’S POWER to ALL Nations included in Abraham’s Covenant are grafted in by faith of Jew and Gentiles. God elects Chosen by HIS FREEWILL CHOICE: “The LORD didn’t set HIS LOVE to CHOOSE you because you were more in number than others for you were fewest of all peoples, but the LORD LOVES you and keeps an Oath SWORN to forefathers in Deuteronomy 7:7-8. GOD USED SOVEREIGN POWER and HIS AUTHORITY to Decide Jews join Gentiles in HIS GOSPEL KINGDOM OF GOD. In Romans 3:1, GOD’S Revelations promise to Israel by Moses or prophets to the nations. Romans 9:4 says to Israel belongs Covenants, giving of Laws and promises.” The GOSPEL OF SALVATION is given to Jews in the WORD of God, the Old Testament Scripture is basis of laws. The Messiah Jesus Christ a Jew gave His Life as ULTIMATE SACRIFICE for sins to Jew first and all nations. In Romans 9:5 says Christ is set over all blessed by God.The Messiah Jesus, the Son of David in Romans 1:3 started Ministry with Jews to lost sheep of Israel in Matthew 10:5-6. Jesus in John 4:22 told the Samaritan woman at well, “SALVATION is from the Jews.” CHOSEN nation is GOD’S GOSPEL Revelation through Messiah, SAVIOUR by salvation from Jews.” Romans 11:17-24, says Jews and Gentiles grafted into Covenant by in Christ Jesus True Vine so nations are His Tree’s branches. God in HIS MERCY saves all nations as children of Abraham by faith says Galatians 3:7. All by faith children of Abraham, God’s Covenants with Abraham extends to all the nations on earth. In Acts 13:46, Paul and Barnabas preaching in Antioch of Pisidia told Jews “Its necessary the word of God be spoken to you first for eternal life to turn Gentiles.” From Israel, is the spreading of the GOSPEL to new places, through Jewish Messiah is GOOD News of His Salvation. He who is given much from him required more accountability so in Romans 2:9-10, tribulation and the time of Jacob’s distress is to Jew first and so judgement begins in the Church of God grafted in. Glory, honour, peace rewards to all who does good to the Jews, blessed. For Messiah sake, everyone given much, much is required in Luke 12:48. In Romans 1:16, “The GOSPEL is POWER of God unto Salvation to all who believe, to Jew first and all nations. So important to understand God set up HIS KINGDOM by HIS POWER and Authority. The Seed of the woman through Genesis 29:31-35, “PRAISE THE LORD” son of Jacob, Judah CHOSEN out of 12 sons of Jacob to birth the Messiah. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM is through the Son of God Jesus. GOD’S Salvation is in Christ Jesus, “HIS WAY, THE TRUTH and LIFE so none comes to Father GOD except through Jesus Christ in John 14:6. Salvation is through ONE GOD ONE Mediator between God and all wo/men in Christ Jesus in 1 Timothy 2:5. Bible is clear salvation is found ONLY in Jesus Christ for Christian believer’s in God. Authority of GOD’S WORD is the Biblical Authority of sharing the Saving GOSPEL to all nations to follow GOD’S POWERFUL GOSPEL KINGDOM of Son JESUS CHRIST. God designed and wants salvation as the SOVEREIGN LORD GOD ALMIGHTY with final say in mankind’s eternal destiny. Freewill choice is given to all mankind to accept God’s offer of salvation to join HIS GOSPEL KINGDOM. All in Christ receive GOD’S FREE GIFT of SALVATION but those who reject GOD’S GOSPEL PLAN the WRATH of GOD IS UNLEASHED globally in various forms written in BIBLE. God uses earthquakes, volcanoes floods, tsunamis, wildfires, plagues, hot scorching sun, droughts, famines, Tribulation birthpang warning before the final GREAT TRIBULATIONS. OBEY God’s Sovereign WILL and accept Jesus in your life in Jesus Name.
In John 11: 35 Jesus wept over Lazarus’ death He subdued and then defeated at Calvary. Jesus loves to save all who receive Him and repent to be saved in the Kingdom of God. Christ’ significant victory over death is life in eternity with Him so does not want anyone to perish. Christ is seated at the Right Hand of God interceding for you for God’s mercy and forgiveness and His gift of eternal life. God is patient for a reason and a season as Loving Father to let in those who accept Christ. like anything with sell by date deadline time runs out as God’s timing is getting nearer.

Red moon signs shows believers be alert.
May the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ bring peace, joy and happiness to you all and your family in Jesus Name.
Faith does the works of God in practical ways by applying theology to help others. And Jesus said whoever feeds or gives a coat, provides shelter or gives drink to the least in His Name is a sheep in His Kingdom. Faith in action works if the gospel preached with loving care to the people. Some think doing works of God earns ‘salvation’ some believers do not show kindness, compassion for fear of displeasing God become Scrooge. Justify lack of compassion by excuse is “works” but is this thinking correct? God commands farmers to leave edges of harvest for the poor and travellers to collect and eat for free. Other people help by donating to charity for good causes. But debate comes up because generosity to the stranger or others seen as lazy parasite. Some use excuse of sponsoring bad habit substance abuse, addiction to alcohol or drugs as reasons not to give. Situations of the homeless approaching others for help is considered an offence to beg so most turn to other ways to get funds but risk their lives. Many people refuse to give them support except to help themselves. In Bible on numerous occasions Jesus preached and taught the multitudes, He fed them. As gap widens between rich and the poor qualified but unemployed without wages on the zero hour contract life is difficult for them. Some are trained as back up emergency stand by staff to fill in for absent staff on vacation, sick or on maternity leave. Tied to company, cannot seek other jobs in the interim, with bills to pay and rent arrears while employers raise their own salaries and bonuses. So the question is how to reach out to help others without judging them. This debate between faith as God works of salvation and salvation based on faith alone exists for centuries.The Bible speaks volumes on this topic of salvation good works. Interpretation or proper understanding these passages is vital to our relationship with the Lord and relationship with others. Search for answers to this question in God’s Word says “Know, O foolish man faith without works is dead. Abraham our father was justified by faith works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar. So faith works together with GOD WORKS by works so faith is made perfect. A man is justified by works not by faith only says James 2:20, 22, 24.” Passage in James 2 proves faith alone is not good enough; we must demonstrate good works of salvation. It seems James is not teaching as Paul said salvation of faith alone in Romans 5:1. Time and time again, Paul says works cannot save but faith is knowing Lord Jesus as our Saviour. “For by Grace you are saved through faith not yourselves; so the GIFT of God not by works so none should boast in Ephesians 2:8-9.” James 2 in full context, is not telling us to earn salvation but confirms that good works helps prove we are really true believers. “Faith by itself works is dead. Show me faith without works and I will show you faith by works in James 2:17-18.” When we accept Christ as our Saviour, there is immediate change. A sinner is immediately forgiven, washed clean of sin and restored to a right relationship with the Lord. No fear of consequences of sin because fully justified in His eyes; covered by the blood of Jesus Christ and His SACRIFICE on the cross. The old self dies to become a new creation says 2 Corinthians 5;17.We are sanctified by blood of Jesus daily by process of constant learning to grow on faith journey. Cultivating the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 in serving God. And 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 reveals the intricacy of Body of Christ working together by love to bring Him Glory and share His Love and Truth in the world. Kindness, compassion and our love to others promotes work based salvation. Jesus moved with compassion in His ministry by His example so expects His followers to do so. Matthew 9:36; 14:14; Philippians 2:1-8; Ephesians 4:32 says be kind and loving to others as Jesus did to those around Him and even those who hated Him. Help and serve others but be not absorbed in works with improper motive. Not a people-pleaser by nature constantly looking for others to praise for good things done to get rewards. Jesus sees through ego or pride to earn His good favour by doing good things to others. Developing fruits of kindness and love is Godly works in life. Keeping the heart in check to ensure right motives to serve others. Knowing these things helps to save us so extremely important. The rich man in Bible missed heaven for mistreating Lazarus. God discerns the intentions of the heart and readily help us approach HIM in humility with desire to grow in faith. By our love others know we are Christians as the words of John 13:35 show, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.” It is a great reminder of the responsibility to love others the way God LOVES us. God is LOVE so whoever lives in love lives in God and God in them …We love because Jesus first Loved us,” in 1 John 4:16, 19. God’s LOVE is unconditional, endless so let’s rest in God’s amazing LOVE and extend love to our spouses, kids, friends and strangers in need of kind words or help. In Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and Earth shall pass away but MY WORDS Shall Not pass away. Psalms 119:11, “YOUR WORD I have I hidden in my heart so I will not sin against God and Joseph refused to sin against God. In Psalms 12:6, “The WORDS of the LORD are Pure Words, as silver is tried in furnace of Earth is Purified Seven Times.”Psalms 19:14 says “Let the WORDS of our mouth meditations of our Heart be acceptable in YOUR Sight O LORD Our Strength, and OUR Redeemer in Jesus Name. And Psalms 119:105 says “YOUR WORD is a Lamp unto my feet and Light to my Path!!! THANK YOU OUR FATHER LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. Thank you Son Lord Jesus and thank you Holy Spirit in helping us to love another in Jesus Name.
2 Timothy 3:5 says people have a form of Godliness but deny GOD’S POWER so deny miracles from God. Some forget GOD’S GREATER POWER but accept the devil’s power. And reject GOD’S POWER so many Churches teach their believers not to trust in the Supernatural Miracle POWER of God. They say all miracles ceased with Apostles in time of Jesus so deny GOD’S POWER as a sin against God Jesus and Holy Spirit. Mistrust of GOD’S Supernatural POWER means the LIVING Word of God reduced to merely printed letter, data, facts or figures for logical reasoning conclusion. Such knowledge looks out for errors, mistakes to justify why GOD’S POWER and WORDS today is irrelevant to modern generation. Supernaturally Biblically sound living history is dismissed as exclusively only for few people in the past not important to follow today. But Bible is unlike other histories because the ALMIGHTY GOD is directly involved in affairs of mankind on earth through HIS Son Jesus Christ. God commands us in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ to connect with HIM for our own good. A lot of challenges or difficulties in life stem from mistrust of GOD’S POWER to intervene in ordinary lives. Some think God is too big to notice them so God cannot possibly care about the personal needs so search for help from other places. Such attitudes cut themselves off from Mercy and Grace of God to suffer. Each brand of Christianity claims their God is the real one so forbids members from seeking the Supernatural miracle available through deeper anointing. Bible says according to your faith be it unto you in Matthew 9:27-31. So Jesus touched two blind men’s eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. Jesus said to them I say to you If you have faith and do not doubt you will not only do this thing to the fig tree but say to a mountain be removed and cast into the sea and it will be done. Physically blind people discerned God’s MIGHTY POWER at work and followed Jesus crying and saying, Son of David, have Mercy on us. When He came into the house two blind men came to Jesus so He asked them do you believe, I Am able to do this? They said to Jesus, Yes Lord. 29 He touched He their eyes saying according to your faith its done for you. 30 And their eyes were opened and Jesus told them let no man know this. 31 But they departed and spread abroad His Fame in all the country. People have an appearance of God yet deny HIS POWER because spiritually blind. They need to understand its an offence against GOD’S Supernatural POWER to give due Credit of WORKS of the Holy Spirit to the devil. Christians profess to love and serve God but doubt HIS Miracle POWER today at work in modern times. So destroy faith, trust, Confidence in God to detriment of the doubters. Jesus says you will receive depending on your faith in God’s ability to help and deliver you. Deceptions in a Church is due to a fear of false prophets, apostles of swindling the people to turn against belief in Supernatural miracles. This damages a Church but BELIEVE IN GOD’S PROPHET to RECEIVE PROPHET’S REWARD in Bible in 2 Chronicles 20:20. Believe in the LORD your GOD and be established BELIEVE in HIS prophets so you will prosper. Whoever welcomes a prophet as a PROPHET will RECEIVE the prophet’s reward. The duty Christians is to BELIEVE in CHRIST and profess faith in God as Matthew 10:41 said. Those wo receive prophet in the Name of prophet receives prophet’s reward. And all who receive a righteous man in the name of Jesus receives rewards from God. True prophets of God must not be mixed with false ones to reject prophecy to restore your lives in the Name of Jesus Christ. Test spirits to see if they are from God for by their fruits you will know them. Beloved don’t believe every spirit, but test spirits to see if from God for many false prophets have gone into the world. In Numbers 11:11-29 Moses agreed with God’s Spirit is in all people to prophesy as Eldad and Medad did. So God’s Spirit in Moses imparted to the seventy elders. The LORD told Moses, “Take Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, of God and lay your hand on him to stir and activate his faith in Nehemiah 9:20. God sent the Holy Spirit as a comforter and helper in Scripture to make it easy so Spirit of God joined the spirit of man. Each office is relevant and important so Churches cannot reject God’s duty roles.
By this you will know if the Spirit of God for every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God says 1 John 4:1-6. Almighty God says test the Spirit to know if truly from God or an angel of light. To test God’s Spirit is to check if word is in line with Word of God by their fruits. Do not write off and dismiss all prophets as fake just because of rumours and gossips. You do not stop using genuine currency money because the counterfeit is in circulation. Rather you check it thoroughly to ensure it is authentic. People are misled to suffer in pain through the deception of rejecting truth that will be useful to help deliver them. God’s Spirit manifests peace, love, joy even in challenging situations. God confirms by two or three witnesses HIS messages to testify of the Goodness of God on any issue you are dealing with. Don’t let fear or doubt deprive you from God’s LOVE, Grace, deliverance, Mercy.
