  • The King of kings and Lord of lords has issued you a Very Special Invitation to His Wedding which will take place in the near future -- you must respond before it is too late!
    It matters not if you are rich or poor -- if you are young or old -- if you are famous or ordinary -- the invitation is for you!
    There is the story of this Very Special Invitation recorded in the Bible, in the Book of Matthew, chapter 22, verses 1 to 14 and it is for every one of us -- IF -- we respond without delay.
    There is only one requirement to attend this great event -- you must be clothed in a proper wedding garment -- and that is -- you must be covered with the Righteousness of Jesus Christ, the Groom.
    The "Parable of the Marriage Feast" was given by Christ Himself and is for all to seriously consider as Very Personal -- and Very Important. It illustrates the need of being prepared for the great event coming soon in fulfillment of Bible Prophesy -- the Second Coming of the Savior to gather His Chosen Bride.
    Verse 8 indicates that the original invitations were sent to the Jews, who rejected it, and then the invitation was opened to the Gentiles. Today the invitation is opened to all mankind who will respond and accept it -- to all men and women, to all rich and poor, to all educated and uneducated -- to ALL who will respond and accept it.
    Verse 10 indicates the work of Missionaries and all Christians to witness -- "But you shall receive Power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you -- and you shall be witnesses of Me in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth" (Acts 1:8).
    The Invitation is urgent -- the time is now -- action must be taken immediately before the door of opportunity is closed and the end comes.
    Just think of it -- YOU are Personally Invited to the Greatest Event of all time -- with the greatest results ever offered to man -- Forgiveness and Salvation Forever -- the Promise of a Home in Heaven Forever.
    This present life is so very short compared to Eternity. This present life is just "Boot Camp" (Preparation) for what faces us -- and we MUST respond while we have life and breath. One second after death is TOO LATE!
    The Apostle Paul said to the Jailer at Philippi -- "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ -- and you WILL be Saved" (Acts 16:31).
    Jesus, Himself said -- "You MUST be Born Again" (John 3:7).
    The Apostle Peter said -- "Repent therefore and be Converted, that your sins may be blotted out -- so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord" (Acts 3:19).
    Page 2 of 2 - In our own goodness, we will NEVER earn our Salvation. Thankfully, the Prince of Glory who co-existed with the Father, left the Splendor of Heaven, Came Down to Earth, Died on a Cross, was Buried and Rose Again -- so that He could pay the price and provide a way for everyone who would come to Him and Believe in Him.
    The Greatest Invitation ever offered to man is still open to all who will Believe and Accept God's Love -- and Rejoice in what Christ not only has done but continues to do on our behalf.
    BELIEVE! -- RECEIVE! -- ACCEPT! -- REJOICE!
