KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 22:10 (KJV). “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.”
The Lord gave another parable about the kingdom of God. He said a king made a dinner for his son’s marriage, and bid a number of people to come. These people were adamant and refused to go. The king was not happy with the number of persons present. He instructed his servants to go to the highways and gather in people both good and bad. This parable is referring to the house of God. The gathering of the people of God is for a feast. This feast is made up of, a meal of salvation, a meal of instruction in wisdom, a meal for healing, a meal for deliverance and many more IT is always a great disservice to any child of God to abstain from the gathering of the saints. (Heb 10:25)
God always wants His house filled to capacity. “And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”— Luke 14:23 (KJV). In this parable, the Lord asked his servant to go and compel every kind of person to the dinner, so that His house would be full. Compelling people means forcing them to come alongside. God is asking every child of God to go out there and ‘force’ people into the house of God. We should not be shy doing this for God.
WHY would people refuse to partake of great meals that has been set up for them? Why would people give very flimsy excuses for not coming into the house of God.? Many of these people are ignorant of the evil forces that force them not to go into God’s presence for wisdom, salvation, divine security and many more. 2 Corinth 4:4, and Ephesians 2:2&3. I have prayed for different kinds of people, while certain voices speaking through them say, they have been keeping them from coming into God’s house. Pray for soul, speak to them and compel them into the house of God. God wants his house to be full.
THOUGHT: God’s church is the pillar and ground of truth, get men there.1st Timothy 3:15
2 Corinthians 4:4 (KJV). “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
Luke 14:21 (KJV). “So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.”
