05-27-2023 Matthew Ch 22 v-0711 Guests from roads and streets his ploy
Gospel of Matthew Ch 22 v- Seven thru Eleven
7 The king was enraged and sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. 8 Then he said to his servants, ‘The feast is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy to come. 9 Go out, therefore, into the main roads and invite to the feast whomever you find.’ 10 The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests. 11 But when the king came in to meet the guests he saw a man there not dressed in a wedding garment.
In Matthew 13:47, we hear what this parable means when the king searches for guests to invite when all others lose interest. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind.” This means the good and the bad. Amen. Some will come dressed ready to enter while others will not know the code of arms and come dressed from the fields of daily work and toil. Can you imagine? How many back in those days taken right off the street were in need of some sort of deep cleaning? Today, the world operates a cleanliness that surpasses a need and enters excessiveness in countries where too much is being said too soon for the world operates with evil in her heart as many garners too much too soon exploited by the media spewing sin.
Matthew 7:21-23 below reflects on this passage of what it takes to enter the Kingdom of Heaven which by all accounts comes from a changed heart where you have repented all sin and take the mindset to live absolutely Redeemed! The wedding garment is the symbol of repentance something that must be accomplished before entering the Kingdom if Heaven. Not all will make it. Some will ask many will get turned down for they hold the world in their hearts and minds and not the ease of Salvation forgiving anyone for anything at all times relinquishing this torment for peace forever. We must wear the Garment of Salvation being dressed in goodwill no matter the call no matter the situation to live with a humble heart bearing wrongs patiently and willingly. Amen.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?’ Then I will declare to them solemnly, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers.’ Will you let the world separate you from the Kingdom of God by not following His call to repent? I’ll pray you do. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for the intersession of our Holy Mother for the sister of Jackie her name is Loreen. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Guests from roads and streets his ploy**
Troops his sent enraged was king
Murderers those destroy
Come not worthy invites his sting
Guests from roads and streets his ploy
Good and bad gathered
Guests filled the hall
Guests king came to meet their tatters
Garment of the wedding dressed not his call
