Matthew 22:1-14 AN INVITATION TO THE BANQUET KJV
Mat 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
Mat 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Mat 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
Mat 22:5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
Mat 22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
Mat 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
Mat 22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For many are called, but few are chosen.
Hebrews 3:11 "So I sware in My wrath, they shall not enter into My REST." Speaking of that literal and figurative Shabbat that brings us close to YaHVaH's breast.
John 10:7 Then said YaHOSHA Messiah unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
John All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
I am The Good Shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
TsephaniYaH'/Zeph 1:6 And them that are turned back from YAHVAH; and those that have not sought YAHVAH, nor enquired for him.
Hold thy peace at the presence of YAHVAH Elohim: for the day of YAHVAH is at hand! for YAHVAH hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests. :8 And it shall come to pass in the day of YaHVaH's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.
:9 In the same day also will I punish all those that leap over the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.
Isa 30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith YAHVAH, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
Isa 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in YAHVAH, my soul shall be joyful in my Elohim; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride (us) adorneth herself with her jewels.
KEEP HIS MITZVOH
Lev 23:1 And YaHVaH spake unto Moses, saying,
Lev 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of YaHVaH, which ye shall proclaim to be pure convocations, even these are my feasts.
Lev 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an pure convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of YaHVaH in all your dwellings.
Lev 23:4 These are the feasts of YaHVaH, even pure convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
Lev 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is YaHVaH'S Passover.
Deu 16:1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto YaHVaH thy God: for in the month of Abib YaHVaH thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
Deu 16:13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
Zec 14:17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, YaHVaH of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
Isa 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith YaHVaH, so shall your seed and your name remain.
Isa 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith YaHVaH.
Col 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances (certificate of indebtness that was against us) (Animal Sacrifices for sin) that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat (verb) EATING, or in drink (verb) DRINKING or in respect of an Feast day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days:
Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body (is) of Messiah. (i.e. Let no man judge you about eating and drinking pertaining to Feastdays, but the Body of Messiah.)
The rebel will say, "I just want Jesus, not His shadows." A big however is that Passover is ALL ABOUT MESSIAH! 1 Cor_5:7.." For even YaHOSHA our Passover is sacrificed for us." I answer the rebel with: Since Messiah IS our Passover, this Feast is ALL about Him!
Are the New Moons, Sabbaths and Feast Days only “types and shadows”?
YaHOSHA’s sweet loving invitation is to “Come and Dine” at His set Feasts.
Do not reject YaHOSHA Messiah's beckoning to "Dine" at His set Feasts of Passover, Shavout (Firstfruits), Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day).
In our Marital Covenant, we accept Messiah the Annointed One on His conditions, Commandments, statutes and judgments; this is His ceremony, with the biggest reception in History, the consummation, and the thousand year Honeymoon.
Hebrews 4:8 "For if Yasha Ben Nun had given them REST, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There therefore remaineth a REST to the people of YaHVaH." The Sabbath was made only for the Jews? No, It was made for all mankind.
Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Rev 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our Elohim which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
Rev 7:11 And all the heavenly messengers stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped Elohim,
Rev 7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our Elohim for ever and ever. Amen.
Rev 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 17:14 These (the army of the beast) shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Master of masters, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the Marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.
Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
Rev 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.
And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of Elohim.
Let us all be ready, willing and able to go up and meet YaHVaH and His Messenger (Who sits on the throne of David) and be clothed by His righteousness. No one will be arrayed in strange apparel. Shalom to you this wonderful day of YaHVaH. All things are almost ready.
