The Wedding Invite
October 31, 2020 12:44 PM
I had been drawn to this site in March when I was sent to work at home and seeking Biblical answers to the surreal environment the world was suddenly plunged into. I had been praying and asking the Lord (like several of you I had observed from the previous comments) about whether I would be worthy to be included in His soon gathering of His people. I received the following dream on the morning of Oct 30 around 5:30am. I wanted to share it with you.
I drove up a road to a mountainous area to attend a wedding. I had been given a dress to wear. It was a beautiful gold dress that flowed out with sequins, lace and embroidery. When I was moving closer to the bride to greet her, she told me that I was to be her first attendent (maid/matron of honor). I was so taken back first by the dress and then the part of the wedding party. The young bride was in her 20s, pretty, and wearing white. I was acquainted with her, but I couldn’t tell you her name. I am in my 60s. I realized that I had forgotten my dress shoes which were golden sequins and I was wearing casual sandals. No one seemed to be concerned as the dress would cover my feet. Everyone around was so nice and happy and no one looked down on me or made negative comments about the situation. I recall that I never met the groom, nor watched a wedding ceremony. We were sitting at round tables and having casual conversations with the bride and others present. I primarily remember feeling constantly in awe and humbled for being invited, given a beautiful dress and given a high place of honor.
This is the Bible reference that came to my mind:
[Luke 14:7-11 NKJV]
7 So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them:
8 “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him;
9 “and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place.
10 “But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you.
11 “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
