Are you dressed for the wedding?

Weddings are times of joy, and when wedding invitations are sent, the host or hostesses expect the people who are invited to show up for the occasion. It was common in weddings involving the wealthy to provide each guest with a white wedding garment. When the guests accepted the invitation, they would be given the garment to be worn to the wedding when the day arrived. This is a picture of salvation because the day a person accepts the Lord’s invitation to Jesus and salvation, upon acceptance, that person receives a robe of righteousness. That is, sins are forever forgiven and justified by faith on what Jesus Christ accomplished on the Cross of Calvary. jesus c

According to Mathew 22:2; “The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain King, which made a marriage for His son”. The King actually refers to God the Father while the son is the Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation 19:7 says that, “for the marriage of the lamb is come and his wife had made herself ready.”

Let people understand that the wife is actually referring to the redeemed of all ages. And now, the wedding garment is the expression of our faith which is given to every believer at the instant of conversion and it is worn by every believer all the time.

The way to get the wedding garment is by simple faith to the finished work of Christ. It is given to those who place their faith in Jesus alone for salvation, Ephesians 2:8-9.

No one will ever get their wedding garment by being religious, or by being good. It is only through the declaration of our faith in the atoning work of Christ,” (Romans 10:9-10). This garment cannot be purchased at any price. It is received only when faith in the Gospel message has been exercised.

The bible tells us that the King sent Many of His servants to call the people to the wedding and kept on sending forth many servants; and they would not come but made light of it, and went their ways. It is the same even with us now, prophets and preachers have been sent, but we are all busy with our own things.

This invitation is being offered to everyone today; the dinner is prepared: oxen and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come into the marriage dressed in marriage garments. This is where you will meet face to face with the Lord Jesus because He will come and live with you if you have proper wedding garments. It is better to be dressed now for the wedding, and not be like a man, who went to attend the wedding without a wedding garment. This man had self righteousness instead of having the Righteousness of Christ which we receive at the moment we say yes to Jesus. This is the only wedding garment that is needed for the wedding. Without this garment we will be taken away, and cast into outer darkness; where will be weeping and gnashing of teeth: (Mathew 22:13).

The wedding garment that is given by the Lord at time of conversion is a perfect fit for everyone and every time! It fits the young and the old, the big and the little, the rich and the poor, the short and the tall. We will all be admitted purely on the basis of how we are attired. To be without one is to face the Heavenly father unprepared.

Every person dressed in the garment of His son’s righteousness will be accepted by the father in Heaven. How beautiful it is, that you don’t need to do anything but to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior; which will cloth you in such a way as to make you pleasing to Jesus as your personal Savior.
