Revelation benediction #4: You made the guest list
Pastor Mark Jeske
Everybody in Los Angeles loves Hollywood parties. That’s where deals get hatched, that’s where the beautiful people go to be seen, and that’s where up-and-comers try to get noticed by people who make things happen in show business. But woe to you if you are a “B” trying to get into an A-list party. “I’m sorry, sir—your name does not appear to be on the guest list. Vinnie, would you escort this gentleman to the gate?”
Here’s good news—the Bible delivers your invitation to the wedding supper of the Lamb of God, delivers it to you personally: “Then the angel said to me, ‘Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ And he added, ‘These are the true words of God’” (Revelation 19:9). You made it! You made the list! God actually wants you to join him and all the saints at the great feast.
Your body will be restored from all ailments and aging. Your loved ones who died in the Lord are now alive in the Lord! There is no trace of Satan, sin, or sadness. You can finally see all the angels who have been helping and protecting and attending you your whole life. They are smiling, glad to see you. You finally actually get to see Jesus face-to-face, still in his human flesh, scars on hands and feet still visible.
Oh—one thing. One very important thing. You need to RSVP.
So—are you in?
Why can’t they just stop?
Why can’t you just stop drinking? Why don’t you stop getting high? We’re broke because of your gambling! Can’t you see what you’re doing to me and how you’re destroying our family? Why don’t you stop, and why don’t you care?!
If these questions sound familiar, then this book is for you.
