During prayer time with the Lord, the following Words of Knowledge were spoken:

Speak” “Prophecy” “Few Will Be Chosen

And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king (GOD our FATHER) who arranged a marriage for his son (Jesus Christ),  and sent out his servants (the prophets) to call those who were invited to the wedding (at that time Israel) and they were not willing to come.’ Again, he sent out other servants (Jesus’ Apostles and Disciples and those of the early church) 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. (Israel’s response which now includes multitudes of Gentiles who are too self-absorbed with the affairs of this world to answer the call).  And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. (historical, present-day and future servants of world evangelism) But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. (The destruction of A.D. 70 but also foreshadows futuristic latter-day events) Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. (Unresponsive Israel but would also come to include unresponsive Gentiles.) Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.  So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless.  Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. **For many are called, but few are chosen.** ’” (Mat. 22:1-14)

The Servants’ Message:

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks (Gentiles) foolishness.” (1 Cor. 1:23)

The Called:

Moreover whom He predestined (GOD’S pre-ordained plan of salvation to be transformed into the image of His Son Jesus Christ is for everyone: Jews and Gentiles: For GOD so loved the world: Jn. 3:16) these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified (faith in Jesus’ finished works and complete plan of salvation) and whom He justified, these He also glorified. (the resurrection)” (Rom. 8:30)
