Luke 14:15-24 – The Parable of the Banquet – EPIPHANY: The peoples who are finding excuses and declining “The Invite” are those who have heard of Jesus but refuse to Believe, and even also the lukewarm Church – The folks that are Now being Reached are the latter, until the Fullness of The Gentiles is Brought In…. and THEN The Rapture! – The Banquet is for those who are Raptured – The Wise Virgins in Matthew 25:1-13… The Time is Growing Very Short!
Now on to The Parable of The Banquet – I have intimate knowledge of this very thing Happening, and in Miraculous Fashion… as described below in the latter verses. In a country where Jesus is not commonly even heard of… Come Soon Lord Jesus – Hallelujah!!!
15 When one of those reclining with Him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is everyone who will eat at the Feast in the Kingdom of God.”
17 When it was time for the Banquet, he sent His Servant to tell those who had been Invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’
18 But one after another they all began to make excuses. The first one said, ‘I have bought a field, and I need to go see it. Please excuse me.’
19 Another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out. Please excuse me.’
20 Still another said, ‘I have married a wife, so I cannot come.’
21 The servant returned and reported all this to his Master. Then the owner of the house became angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the city, and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.’
22 ‘Sir,’ the servant replied, ‘what you ordered has been done, and there is still room.’
23 So the Master told his servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel them to come in, so that My House will be full. 24 For I tell you, not one of those men who were Invited will taste My Banquet.’ ”
