  • Men without God have no idea how the world began and are stubbornly ignorant about how it will end, even though the Bible reveals it to them.
  • After these things …it is time for praise. Ch 6-18 uninterrupted judgement . We saw why judgement was necessary as part of the unchanging character of God. God shows that peace that men have longed for requires righteous judgement. 100 points to get into Heaven Category : Heaven and Hell Jokes A man dies and goes to heaven. St. Peter meets him at the pearly gates. St. Peter says, &amp;quot;Here&apos;s how it works. You need 100 points to make it into heaven. You tell me all the good things you&apos;ve done, and I give you a certain number of points for each item, depending on how good it was. When you reach 100 points, you get in.&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Okay&amp;quot; the man says, &amp;quot;I attended church every Sunday&amp;quot; &amp;quot;That&apos;s good, says St. Peter, &amp;quot; that&apos;s worth two points&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Two points?&amp;quot; he says. &amp;quot;Well, I gave 10% of all my earnings to the church&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Well, let&apos;s see,&amp;quot; answers Peter, &amp;quot;that&apos;s worth another 2 points. Did you do anything else?&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Two points? Golly. How about this: I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for homeless veterans.&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Fantastic, that&apos;s certainly worth a point, &amp;quot; he says. &amp;quot;hmmm...,&amp;quot; the man says, &amp;quot;I was married to the same woman for 50 years and never cheated on her, even in my heart.&amp;quot; &amp;quot;That&apos;s wonderful,&amp;quot; says St. Peter, &amp;quot;that&apos;s worth three points!&amp;quot; &amp;quot;THREE POINTS!!&amp;quot; the man cries, &amp;quot;At this rate the only way I get into heaven is by the grace of God!&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Come on in!&amp;quot;
  • Imagine when the “sinners” use the word Hallelujah – they actually talk about their own damnation to a God they refuse to give allegiance to. Full salvation and full judgement.

  • The bride readies her garments while on earth.
  • The contract of His marriage agreement is the Word of God. The sealing of the covenant is His shed blood on the cross. Jesus drank from the fruit of the vine with His disciples at the last supper and set up the terms with them stating that His blood paid the price. It was sealed, bought and paid for. He even stated that he would not touch the fruit of the vine again until the marriage in heaven. Jesus left to prepare a place for His bride in heaven. (John 14:6). While on earth, the bride of Christ needs to prepare herself to get ready for the return of her bridegroom Christ. Jesus sent His Holy Spirit *which is a part of Himself) ahead of time to give us gifts to help us prepare for His coming. (Eph 4:8 Eph 4:11-13). We have everything we need for our preparation. (Eph 5:27). The gifts are meant to be used. Jesus tells us exactly how we are to prepare and adorn ourselves for the consummation and wedding feast through His Word. At the appointed time we will be joined to Christ in heaven at the Marriage of the Lamb to become “fully one” with Him. When we do, we will come back to earth to rule and reign with Him for 1000 years and then into eternity.
  • People listening to the parable could not understand how a King’s invitation could be rejected and scorned. Yet it is true of the invitation of the wedding feast of the Lamb.
  • Birds to eat the flesh of 200 million, no problem. God’s got a plan.
