Come and Dine

An empty and restless spirit resides in the one who refuses to study My Word. It is a craving, a cavity if you will, of a hungry heart that goes unfilled.

Blessed is the man who ‘daily’ feeds on a meal set for a king; notice I said meal and not a morsel. For if you graze and do not feast, you will be least at the table of offering. I offer you, daily, a feast of delights–Words that have tried the times.

My message is clear, if only you would hear, that a starving man ne’er will dine. For with itching ears, he only will hear, the simple are welcome here.

Waste not what I bring, be it an offering, to the one who bids you come. For He would delight, to see you each night at His table–set for a king!

It’s dinner time–

Come and Dine.

“–‘A man once gave a great banquet, and invited many; and at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come; for all is now ready.’ But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it; I pray you, have me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them; I pray you, have me excused.’ So the servant came and reported this to his master. Then the householder in anger said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and maimed and blind and lame.’ And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges, and compel people to come in that my house may be filled. For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.'” Luke 14:16-24

“And he said to all, ‘If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.'” Luke 9:23

“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths.” II Timothy 4:3-4

“But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him.” God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For what person knows a man’s thoughts except the spirit of the man which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the Spirit. The unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” I Corinthians 2:9-14

“Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:19-20

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” II Timothy 2:15 KJV

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who observes his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer that forgets but a doer that acts, he shall be blessed in his doing.” James 1:22-25

“And men will come from east and west, and from north and south, and sit at table in the kingdom of God. And behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.” Luke 13:29-30

 

To The Bride

I laid down My life so that you could pick it up and continue on the other side. I Crossed over, but you must remain to carry on the life I began. I became your example, that you might lead; lead others to the Cross, that they might learn to follow…

To become, that they might lead. An endless and triumphant procession of the Bride.

But one day the trumpet will sound, and with a SHOUT…

The Bride Groom is here!

I will bid come–come to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.

Spotless and bright–no wrinkle; no blemish.

Their names have been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Recorded for Eternity. All entries it contains–still room for more there remains. But on that Day, the Book will close, and so the doors–no more will enter to life.

Don’t wait for that Day–It may be too late.

The strife that you’re living, and neglectful for giving–will become your demise. When you see the others rise…

to meet their coming King!

Salvation I bring

and, a Wedding ring. To the Bride I call ONE.

To the Bride I callĀ 

COME!

“But at midnight there was a cry, “Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.” Matthew 25:6

“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord.” I Thessalonians 4:16-17

“Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunderpeals, crying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure”–for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” Revelation 19:6-9

“And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, by what they had done.” Revelation 20:12

“Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so, Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:7-8

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Revelation 22:12

 

I Bid You Come

The Master calleth you…

I bid you come

There are many distractions in this world that have held you back…

Still I bid you come

It is not too late, though you have set me aside for a better time…

I bid you come

There are bills to be paid, and laundry to do, and if you will just wait for me to finish this class…

Still I bid you come

It’s tax time again, and time moves so fast; I just got this job, and what about my past?

Be Still

I Bid You…

Come

“Ho every one who thirsts come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in fatness. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.” Isaiah 55:1-3

“Come to me all who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

“–If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?” Mark 8:34-36

“Peter began to say to him, ‘Lo, we have left everything, and followed you.’ Jesus said, ‘Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. But many that are first will be last, and the last first.'” Mark 10:28-31

“Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!” Psalms 46:10
