The Kingdom of God Invites us to be restored.

 

 

Wedding Banquet

Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.Matt 22:1-2 (NIV

1st Invitation

He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. Matt 22:3 (NIV)

2nd Invitation

“Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’ Matt 22:4 (NIV)

2nd Rejection

“But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. Matt 22:5-6 (NIV)

Enraged King

The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. Matt 22:7 (NIV)

Anyone You Can Find

“Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.

Matt 22:8-10 (NIV)
