Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 52

The basic message of the Parable of the Great Banquet could be stated this way: “The tragedy of the Jewish rejection of Christ has opened the door of salvation to the Gentiles. The blessings of the kingdom are available to all who will come to Christ by faith.” Those who ignored the invitation to the banquet chose their own punishment—they missed out. The master respects their choice by making it permanent: they would not “taste of my banquet.” So it will be with God’s judgment on those who choose to reject Christ: they will have their choice confirmed, and they will never taste the joys of heaven.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 50

The parables are about salvation and these are no different. Jesus uses these parables to express the power and the sovereignty of the kingdom of God, the goal being to galvanize the significance of salvation through Christ. These two brief parables are spoken in the synagogue and the third parable is spoken as he resumes his journey to Jerusalem.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 44

There will be no time to prepare for the Lord’s coming except for today. No one knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return. Our command is to be always ready…always prepared…always on guard. As there are things we must do to be physically fit and growing in strength there are things we must be doing to grow intellectually and spiritually. The scriptures are very plain in their instruction that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Not only does faith come by hearing the word of God, but so does understanding Him come about by reading the word of God.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 41

Satan deceives and distracts and convinces people that they have no need for a savior because they haven’t done anything to deserve hell. And he does that through false religions. He convinces them that the Bible is just a book of fables or moral lessons or he convinces them that it is within their own power to gain access into heaven.
