The TIME we are in as a nation, reminds me of this parable Jesus spoke. Notice He delivered this imperative word as a story. When stories are told, the hearer receives the information, processes it and implements the information in different ways. In the case of the wedding banquet, the KING set forth an invitation via SERVANTS to those whom he already had previously spoken to. “He sent his servant to those who have been invited.” Have you ever sent out an invitation to dear friends or someone whom you truly care for, requesting they be a part of what you’re doing, and yet they deny or ignore your invitation? “Thank you, but no thank you. I feel “called” to this party, church or vacation. I can’t make it today as I have other plans” They interpret your “story” or invite as just another invitation, party or get together when in reality, you tried gathering them because at this “banquet” you were going to share some vital information. Information that would literally save their souls. But they denied your invitation, and found something “better to do, someone else’s party or ministry that was bigger and more popular.”
So it is in the hour we now are living in! Servants of God have sent out numerous invites but very few RSVP. Undoubtedly the one hosting is heartbroken, for they knew why they wanted to gather their loved ones. Jesus desired to gather the people and they chose to not RSVP. Jesus then goes so far to say they don’t deserve to even be a part of my party! So He sends His messengers to the street corners! Notice the ACTOR that tries to get in at the last minute! He’s easily identified and thrown out. No second chances and no back up invitation. Time’s up!
Do not for a moment think the King Is not enraged and does not have an army that will destroy the murderers and burn down all those who have a hand in perpetrating evil upon the earth, the children, your very families.
Daniel 2:21 declares,” And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
As a believer and obedient follower of Jesus Christ, you should be highly encouraged that HE changes times, seasons and KINGS! Things are about to change! Are you dressed for a wedding or a funeral? There’s no in between. No one who does evil can be saved by evil.
Understanding the TIMES is imperative. Are the CLOCKS in your home set to snooze (see my word posted on june 6, 2023 “Spiritual Alarm Clocks: Snooze Is Dismantled) or are you awake, out of bed, dressed and prayed up? There will be no costumes allowed at this time. All who enter will be easily identified. All fake Christian’s and fake actors will be treated as such. “This is the word of the Lord. “The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.”

The Parable of the Wedding Banquet
22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
4 “Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’
5 “But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. 9 So go to the street corners and invite anyone you find to the banquet.’ 10 So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12 He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ 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
