The big wedding--are you invited?
There was a big wedding in England this week. Anybody who is anybody was invited. It was the beautiful people on earth all gathered to see Prince William wed Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey. The man who occupies the Oval Office was not invited. And the Ambassador to Syria, a terrorist sponsoring nation, was uninvited because he is not supporting the democratic revolution there sponsored by another terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood. So where does that put the President of the United States--somewhere between president of the most powerful nation in the free world and a front man for a terrorist sponsoring country? But there is going to be another wedding even bigger than the royals.
Not everybody will make the list on this wedding either. In fact, you will be most likely surprised who is there. Its been a long time in preparation. In typical Jewish tradition, the bridegroom has gone to prepare a place for his bride at his father's estate. When the father says that the abode is ready, the bridegroom will return for his bride. The bride is supposed to be spotless and ready, for she does not know at what day or time her groom will return. She should have her life in order, ready to leave with her husband on a moments notice. She has many, many who tend to her. They are also to keep watch for the return of the groom, as it may be like a thief in the night.
Unlike the royals' guestbook, the names of those who will attend this wedding are kept in a book away from the public's eye. In fact, not all who know the groom and have done many wonderful works in his name will be allowed to enter in. Some who have known the groom for a long time, others who have known him only a short time will be allowed to come. Its not a list of celebrities. In fact, a lot of common folk will make the list, to the great astonishment of others. Some might be those who work in the field, others in factories, still others who are fishermen. Some might have a lot of money, but most will not. Notwithstanding, this will be the most important of royal weddings in history.
By now you may have figured out that I am referring to the wedding of the Church with Jesus Christ. It is the wedding that nobody would want to miss. And its not going to matter whether you are the president of the United States or the ambassador to Syria. All that matters is your heart and whether you have accepted Jesus as your savior and have kept his commandments. While many may have wished and hoped they were in the guest book for the Will and Kate wedding, the one thing everyone should want to be sure of is to have your name written in the book of life. Revelation 20:15 says, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Do you have an invitation?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
