What is this “wedding garment” we have to wear to enter the Kingdom of God? (Mathew 24)


In Matthew chapter 22 we see the story
of a man who gets thrown out into the outer darkness from the wedding of the
king’s son and in that story this man gets thrown out into the outer darkness
which is hell because he’s not wearing this cloth, wedding garment. So what is
this wedding garment we should wear in order to get into the kingdom of heaven?
And there is an answer to what it is in the Bible so we gonna find out what that
wedding garment is. This is Matthew chapter 22 verse 2, “The kingdom of heaven
is like a certain king who arranged the marriage for his son and sent out his
service to call those who were invited to the wedding
and they were not willing to come.” So as you know there will be a wedding banquet
for God’s son who is Jesus Christ and it says many were invited to the wedding
but they were not willing to come. And continue here, verse 4, “again he sent out other
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.” As you know in Old
Testament times God sent his servants , his prophets to Israel but Israeli
people, they kill the prophets from God. So later on, God sent them an army to
destroy the city which is Jerusalem. So it’s talking about that here. So this part of
the story is talking about Israel. And continue on verse 8, “then he said
to his servants the wedding is ready but those who were invited were not worthy
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 of
whom they found, both bad and good and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
So after the Old Testament times now is the New Testament times and it says, “invite
everyone bad and good”. So now in this new age of church all the Gentiles are
invited to the wedding and all the people from all the nations of the world
they’re invited so there they are filling up all the churches around the
world so it says here, “and the wedding hall was filled with guests.” So in
contrary to the the first part of the story which is talking about Israel, now
this part is talking about the church age and about the Gentiles. So nowadays
there are so many churches and all the church halls are filled with guests and
they believe they are saved so they rejoice and they”re having a celebration
every Sunday singing songs to God thinking they are saved. But it says here,
verse 11, “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. So, many are called but
few are chosen.” So, many have been invited and they are
filling the the wedding hall to celebrate in the churches but many of
them will not have this wedding garment. So they will be thrown into outer
darkness. Outer darkness is hell because in Hell there is no light so it’s dark in
there and because of so much pain there’ll be gnashing of teeth.
So it says here, “for many are called but few are chosen.” So out of so many
Christians, I mean so many Jesus believing Christians, they are called but
only few of them will be chosen to get into the kingdom of God. So what
is this wedding garment? The answer is in the book of Revelation. Revelation
chapter 19 verse 7, “let us be glad and rejoice and give him glory for the
marriage of the lamb has come and his wife has made herself ready and to her
it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine
linen is the righteous acts of the saints. So we see once again here it’s
talking about the marriage of the Lamb who is Jesus Christ, the son of God and his
wife has made herself ready and to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine
linen. So it’s talking about the cloth, fine linen that the wife must wear and what
is that cloth, the fine linen? It says here, “the fine linen is the
righteous acts of the saints.” So there are many Christians, they believe they
are saved just because they believe Jesus and although they are weak and
they are living a sinful life, because they believe Jesus they are saved by the
grace of God in spite of their wickedness and sinful life. So, many of
them, they don’t have this fine linen granted to them. So as a bride of Jesus
Christ we have to make ourselves ready with this fine linen, the wedding garment
which is the righteous acts of saints. So the many Jesus believing Christians,
because of the false gospel they believe in, they don’t have this wedding
garment ready so they are in danger of being thrown into the outer darkness
which is hell. And another thing I have to mention is that this wedding garment which is
the righteous acts of the saints, it has to be granted by God. Because no matter
how hard you try unless it’s granted by God you can’t make yourself holy. It’s
impossible to be holy if it’s not granted by God. So how does it
get granted by God? I explained about this in another video called, “How to be born
again”. In that video I explained that to be born again you must not only believe Jesus
Christ but you have to let Jesus in you, in the center of you which means denying
yourself and make him the Lord of your life. So instead of following your dreams
and living the life the way you like, but to
obey Jesus and follow him to live for his kingdom. So only if you do that and
be born again then you will be able to live a holy life. I explained about that
in detail in that video but, because, just like the earthly parents – they protect
their children, for those who are born again to be the children of God, God
protects them from the temptation, all the evil urges from the evil spirits so
that they can resist the temptation. So unless you not only believe Jesus but
deny yourself and make Jesus your Lord of your life you won’t be born again and
God will not protect you from the evil temptations so you won’t be able to live
a holy life. But if you deny yourself to follow Jesus then you’ll be born again and
this fine linen will be granted to you which is the righteous acts and holiness.
So without this garment no one can enter the kingdom of God. So that’s what’s
happening right now. So many Christians, they believe Jesus Christ but they
hesitate to follow Jesus and still live for this world so they’re not able to
live a holy life. So because they don’t have this wedding garment which is
holiness, the righteous acts of saints they won’t be chosen to get into the wedding
banquet and into the kingdom of heaven. So I wish you that you realize this and
decide to follow Jesus and don’t live for this world with all the evil desires
and all the values that are vain but separate yourself from
this world to follow Jesus and to work for his kingdom and God will keep you
from the evil and God will keep you holy and you will make yourself ready with
this wedding garment which is righteous acts of the saints and holiness to get
into the kingdom of heaven. I wish you blessings from the Lord.
