Parables is the illustration and comparison to physical and spiritual.
And in this parable it was clear that we need to wear the right wedding clothes.
Matthew 22:2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
He will send servant to invite then in the wedding but the people neglected.
Who are the servants?
Before in the old testaments it was the prophets who communicate and in the new testaments it was Jesus and his disciples. Nowadays, the Holy Spirit is the one who communicates to us in order to minister.
All we need to do is to receive His invitation.
John 3:29-30 The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. 30 He must become greater; I must become less.”
Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
God used many prophets but most people rejected them.
The message was "tell those who was been invited that I have prepared a dinner".
God repeats his message to the Jews over and over again.
The Kingdom of heaven is a wedding banquet.
We are all under construction but the the point is we need to receive the message. We should pay attention to the words of God.
Are we being mistreated because of our faith?
As most people are lovers of pleasure than lovers of God.
But then the persecution in this world can not be compared to hell. All these persecution are nothing compared (if you go) to heaven.
Even as believers we must be careful not to love money more than God.
The 1st invitation was for the Jews but they refuse and the 2nd was for the religious but they all refuse. And the 3rd was for the Gentiles.
But people nowadays like to make robes and they will make their own religion have thier own doctrines, etc...
That is foolishness as it is the work of men because salvation is not the work of men but God.
Christ provided his own robe of righteousness and wear it. And where can you get it?
Only in the Bible the word of God.
This is to remind us not to wear filthy clothes as this is our own effort.
Jesus indeed said to us that He is the only way the truth and the Light.
7 Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
8 Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.”
(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)
9 Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”
Isaiah 61:10 I delight greatly in the LORD;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
Our savior often use this expression "for many are called but only few are chosen" who are really saved?
We need Jesus to give us the robe of righteousness.
If you don't have Jesus Christ (robe of righteousness) you will be thrown outside.
Romans 3:2 Much in every way! First of all, the Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God.
