If you were invited to the Royal Wedding God is preparing, do you know protocol for such an event?

Do you know the voice of the Bridegroom? (Matthew 25:1-13; Revelation 19:7).
Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, ‘See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully and killed them. But when the king heard about it he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city” (Matthew 22:2-7).
If God called you to the wedding of His Son today, would you be ready? The Greek word for called in this verse means, summoned by the King. I dare say that if we knew we were to receive a royal summon we would at least Google the protocol guidelines. The Word of God contains His protocol guidelines.
Some make light of the fact that God the Father is preparing a wedding for His Son, Jesus Christ. Their focus is on their earthly lives and getting ahead in this world.
Some behave viciously toward Christians. They see nothing wrong with treating them spitefully and killing God’s people. God is patient, but He will be patient only so long. There is coming a time when there will be unbelievable tribulation upon all the earth. People will cry out to die rather than live through times worse than any known to man.
If you were invited to God’s royal wedding, would you be prepared by knowing His kingdom protocol? If not, why not? What is stopping you from getting ready? (Revelation 19:7).
May the celebration of Jesus' death and resurrection have significantly greater meaning to each one of us this year. Jesus’ love is unconditional. He loved each one of us so much that He was willing to take the penalty for every sin that every person would ever commit, so that all would have the opportunity to receive eternal salvation (John 3:16).
Salvation is an individual choice, it is not membership in a church or denomination. Rejoice, and graciously thank Jesus for all He has done for us!
