The WEDDING guest


Revelation 19:7

King James Version

7 Let us be glad and rejoice, 

and give honour to him: 

for the marriage of the Lamb is come, 

and his wife hath made herself ready.

We have been called to a wedding feast.

And it's not just an ordinary wedding feast.

The king himself called us to attend.

What would be a proper attire for such a wedding?

How shall we conduct ourselves?

Let SPIRIT and SCRIPTURE explain.

JESUS tells us a parable, of a king, who was preparing a wedding feast for his son:

Matthew 22:2-7

King James Version

2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, 

which made a marriage for his son,

3 And sent forth his servants to call them 

that were bidden to the wedding: 

and they would not come.

4 Again, 

he sent forth other servants, saying, 

Tell them which are bidden, 


I have prepared my dinner: 

my oxen and my fatlings are killed,

and all things are ready: 

come unto the marriage.

5 But they made light of it, 

and went their ways, 

one to his farm, 

another to his merchandise:

6 And the remnant took his servants, 

and entreated them spitefully, 

and slew them.

Matthew 22:7-10

King James Version

7 But when the king heard thereof, 

he was wroth: 

and he sent forth his armies, 

and destroyed those murderers, 

and burned up their city.

8 Then saith he to his servants, 

The wedding is ready, 

but they which were bidden were not worthy.

9 Go ye therefore into the highways, 

and as many as ye shall find, 

bid to the marriage.

10 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.

Matthew 22:11-12

King James Version

11 And when the king came in to see the guests, 

he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

12 And he saith unto him, 

Friend, how camest thou in hither 

not having a wedding garment? 

And he was speechless.

Matthew 22:13-14

King James Version

13 Then said the king to the servants, 

Bind him hand and foot, 

and take him away, 

and cast him into outer darkness, 

there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

14 For many are called, 

but few are chosen.

Before you think the king, harsh, know more about the SYMBOLISM of the wedding feast:

The king is GOD.

Psalm 47:6-7

King James Version

6 Sing praises to God, 

sing praises: 

sing praises unto our King, 

sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth: 

sing ye praises with understanding.

The son is JESUS.

2 Corinthians 11:2

King James Version

2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: 

for I have espoused you to one husband, 

that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

The bride is the church, the new Jerusalem.

Ephesians 5:25-27

King James Version

25 Husbands, 

love your wives, 

even as Christ also loved the church, 

and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it 

with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, 

not having spot, 

or wrinkle, 

or any such thing; 

but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Revelation 21:2

King James Version

2 And I John saw the holy city, 

new Jerusalem, 

coming down from God out of heaven, 

prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation 21:9-10

King James Version

9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels 

which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, 

and talked with me, saying, 

Come hither, 

I will shew thee the bride, 

the Lamb's wife.

10 And he carried me away in the spirit 

to a great and high mountain, 

and shewed me that great city, 

the holy Jerusalem, 

descending out of heaven from God,

The wedding feast is the KINGDOM of GOD.

Matthew 22:2

King James Version

2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, 

which made a marriage for his son,

Romans 14:17

King James Version

17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; 

but righteousness, 

and peace, 

and joy in the Holy Ghost.

The guests are us.

Luke 14:8-11

King James Version

8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, 

sit not down in the highest room; 

lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;

9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, 

Give this man place; 

and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

10 But when thou art bidden, 

go and sit down in the lowest room; 

that when he that bade thee cometh, 

he may say unto thee, 

Friend, go up higher:

 then shalt thou have worship 

in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.

11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; 

and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Would we have the RIGHT garment for the wedding?

Revelation 19:8

King James Version

8 And to her was granted 

that she should be arrayed in fine linen, 

clean and white:

for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Revelation 3:5

King James Version

5 He that overcometh, 

the same shall be clothed in white raiment; 

and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, 

but I will confess his name before my Father, 

and before his angels.

Psalm 15

King James Version

15 Lord, 

who shall abide in thy tabernacle? 

who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness,

and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, 

nor doeth evil to his neighbour, 

nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; 

but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. 

He that sweareth to his own hurt, 

and changeth not.

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, 

nor taketh reward against the innocent. 

He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

John 3:3

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

Matthew 18:3

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Hebrews 12:14

King James Version

14 Follow peace with all men, 

and holiness, 

without which no man shall see the Lord:

1 Thessalonians 5:23

King James Version

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless 

unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

If we are attired properly -- with the RIGHT heart for GOD -- then we are welcome to the wedding feast, the kingdom of GOD!

Revelation 19:9

King James Version

9 And he saith unto me, 


Blessed are they which are called 

unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. 

And he saith unto me, 

These are the true sayings of God.

It is not an earthly dress we will be wearing.

We must be born of the Spirit, clothed in holiness.

That we may be worthy of the LORD.

John 4:24

King James Version

24 God is a Spirit: 

and they that worship him 

must worship him in spirit and in truth.
