Matthew 22:12-13 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Did Jesus here ask to know of the person was a Christian or not ? no What did Jesus ask ? Jesus asked to know if the person had a wedding garment So we see that the condition for entering heaven is not being a Christian or not
The condition to enter heaven is not do you belong to a church ? As we see Jesus is not asking and saying all church members will enter heaven
Jesus says does the person has the wedding garment
What does have f a wedding garment mean ? it means does the person realize they are sinners ? Does the person realize their good works will mkt help them to enter heaven ? Do they understand that of they work they do it because they love me and not to gain anything
Do they i decretando that if they work to gain heaven they have selfish motives and this will not enter heaven ? What is the wedding garment ? it is the righteousness of Jesus How do we obtain it ? by faith asking for it everyday
What would keep you to ask God now to give you his righteousness now ? What would keep you from accepting Jesus in your heart now?
Father please forgive my sins and take me to heaven in the name of Jesus amen
