Luke 14:16-14 ~
But He said to him, “A man was giving a big dinner, and he invited many;
and at the dinner hour he sent his slave to say to those who had been invited,
‘Come; for everything is ready now.’
But they all alike began to make excuses.
The first one said to him,
‘I have bought a piece of land and I need to go out and look at it;
please consider me excused.’
Another one said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen,
and I am going to try them out; please consider me excused.’
Another one said, ‘I have married a wife,
and for that reason I cannot come.’
And the slave came back and reported this to his master.
Then the head of the household became angry and said to his slave,
‘Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the city
and bring in here the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’
And the slave said, ‘Master, what you commanded has been done,
and still there is room.’
And the master said to the slave,
‘Go out into the highways and along the hedges,
and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled.
For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste of my dinner.’”

“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Most of the day yesterday (Monday, 5-9-16), I felt a grieving in my heart; it was a deep, deep sadness that I was unable to shake.
I finally understood that I was feeling the grieving that Yahshua is feeling, over lukewarm professing “Christians” who claim to love Him, yet truly do not. Their hearts have grown cold towards Yahshua, preferring self, their life, their stuff, their “ministry”, their “doctrines”, their “church”, their family, their friends, the opinions of others and more . . . Over HIM!!!
What’s missing is that full, 100% mind-body-soul-spirit-devotion and love for the Savior that propels a person into following Him in obedience! regardless of personal cost/grief. It’s being “in LOVE” with the LORD Yahshua . . Jesus Christ our Savior . . MORE than anybody or anything else (including “self”).
I grieved WITH the LORD over the complacency of the majority of professing “Christians” who have grown cold towards the things of God . . . And many . . . don’t even notice it, thinking “I’m okay”.
Later yesterday evening, this is what the Holy Spirit said to my grieving heart:
“MOST ‘CHRISTIANS’ WILL NOT BE IN THE BRIDAL COMPANY.”
My heart grieved even more. I understood the simple truth spoken in my heart by the Holy Spirit:
“You can’t make anybody love you.” I felt the GRIEF of Yahshua, over those who do NOT love Him, which means they do not obey Him, (John 14:15) yet call themselves a “Christian”.
THINK ABOUT THIS SOBERING POSSIBILITY:
You have been prompted to do something by the Holy Spirit, yet you continue to delay obeying,
thinking “I’ll do this tomorrow” when you know you were supposed to do something LAST YEAR or yesterday or last week or last month or TODAY. . . At that very minute, JESUS returns for “The Bridal Company” . .. HIS PURFIED BRIDE . . . but you are in the midst of sin and rebellion, because you are chosing YOUR time and YOUR way, not the LORD’s time and HIS way.
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE A PART OF THE BRIDAL COMPANY AND YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND!!!!
I’m sharing this with you today, because I BEG EACH PERSON WHO IS READING THIS NOW:
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart and life.
Ask HIM if you are indeed a part of “The Bridal Company”, for we know Scriptures tell us that many are called and FEW are chosen (Matthew 22:14).
If repentance is needed . . Then repent (meaning stop doing what you know you are not supposed to do).
If forgiveness is needed, then forgive.
Take the authority you have been given from the Kingdom of Heaven, resisting ALL dark forces, keeping your spiritual house CLEAN. . .. BE READY AS A PART OF THE “BRIDAL COMPANY”
Revelation 19:7-9 ~
Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come
and His bride has made herself ready.”
It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean;
for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he *said to me, “Write,
‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’”
And he *said to me, “These are true words of God.”
