The Invitation

Posted: December 5, 2013 - 7:08pm

Revelation 19:9 says: “And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who have been invited to the wedding meal of the Lamb!” and the angel said: “These are the true words of God!”

I Corinthians 2:9 says: “But as it is written in the Scriptures: “no one has ever seen this, and no one has ever heard about it. No one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” (The Expanded Bible)

What a supper/party it’s going to be when God calls us home! God has invited everyone but there is going to be many who will turn down the invitation. As I sit here thinking, my mind goes back to the times I was invited to many parties/dinners. I remember some of the things we did at those parties. There was a lot of drinking, smoking and when I say smoking I mean those left-hand cigarettes, a lot of cussing and lying. It was a party straight from Hell! And as I look around I see the same kind of parties going on today. But there is going to be a celebration supper/party in Heaven for all who love Jesus, those who put their trust in Jesus the King of King and Lord of Lords.

Brothers and Sisters, don’t miss out on this supper/party! It’s going to be a Holy Ghost party and God has sent out all the invitations to everyone by way of THE CROSS. Now you might be saying that you didn’t get one but I say yes you did! Everyone got one, everyone born in this world got an invitation. You just haven’t recognized it.

John 3:16 reads: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that who so ever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” You see, that’s the invitation. God’s one and only Son came from Heaven to earth to die once and for all for all mankind. You see, God didn’t forget to invite you. My brothers and sisters, the invitation is sealed, sent, and all you have to do is receive it by putting your trust in Jesus to save you so that you can come to the supper/party. Only He can let you in.

Some of you might be saying, “I’m not worthy to come to the supper/party.” Look, none of us are worthy because all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. But when Jesus died and shed His blood on that Roman cross for all mankind, now when God looks at us He sees the precious blood of Jesus and that’s a good thing. The blood that takes away our sins. You see, His blood makes us worthy.

The Bible says: “If anyone is in Christ Jesus then he is a new creature, old things have passed away and all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). You must understand God had a choice to make, to spare us or His son. Guess what? He spared us. He chose us over His Son! Now ain’t God good! Give Him glory and honor because He is worthy of all our praise.

I want everyone to know it doesn’t matter what you have done or what you have gotten yourself into, the God who created the heavens and the earth, the God who created you and me will forgive you. You have to believe this, God loves us so much.

I want to leave you with this, God gave us free will. We can live for Him or we can live for the devil. We can worship God our Heavenly Father or we can worship Satan. We can choose to go to Heaven or you can make up your mind and choose to go to Hell. You can make Jesus your Lord and Savior or you can reject Him. You can live the way God wants you to live or you can live the way you choose to live and that’s without Jesus. I said all that to say this: Brothers and sisters, time is running out. Our days on this earth are getting shorter and shorter and Jesus is coming back soon. Are you ready for Him? Are you ready to stand before Him? Ready or not He’s coming! So get your life in order now! Remember God gave you free will and God will not violate your will whichever way you choose.

I beg you, do the right thing and live for Jesus. Today is THE day to give your life to Jesus! Just say: Jesus come into my heart. I’m a sinner in need of a savior. Forgive me of my sins. Jesus, make me part of your family. Jesus, I repent of my sins today. I make You my Lord and Savior.

If you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, you are saved and I will see you at the supper/party with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, and all our saved loved ones. See you there!
