In a beautiful village there lived a rich man he was wealthier than any other person in his time he and his family lived in a huge house he had many servants.
once this man wanted to help his country men he felt in his heart to help them by giving anything they ask him along with money and gold and silver.
so he wrote a note on a big banner and hung it in front of his house
the note stated:
THOSE WHO COME INTO THIS HOUSE BEFORE TODAY EVENING 6 O’CLOCK WILL BE REWARDED WITH MONEY GOLD SILVER PLUS ANY OTHER THINGS HE ASK.THE OWNER OF THIS HOUSE HAS PROMISED THIS.
People started to read that note there was a huge crowd at the front door of rich man’s house, the door was kept opened
but none entered in because;
some people said “I did not believe this how could a rich man give a person money gold silver and any other thing that he asks without expecting anything in return?” this is a huge lie.
some said I don’t have anytime to waste on this issue and they left
some said Oh yes I need these rewards i believe this note but i am afraid of entering in;if that rich man would order his servants to throw me out or punish me for entering his house what will I do? what will i do if he changes his mind and takes back his promise.I won’t go in
some said Let’s wait and see who is that dare man/woman to get in and if he gets as it was promised we shall all enter in
the time was running
the rich man was so much worried because of the attitude of the people
there was only 5 minutes to 6 o’clock and none dared to get in
away long a man with rags on him and hunger was worried about his terrible situation because he had debts to pay but had no money to pay them was trying to end his life came to see what was going on in that crowd on reading the note he thought anyway i am going to die why can’t i give a last try to go into this house If it is the will of god he will help me
he entered in and then 5 minutes later that is exactly 6 o’clock evening he came out with new costly dress on him with jewels and money and silver and food dresses packed for him which was carried after him by the servants of that rich man
on seeing this all other people tried to enter in but
the door was closed!
people were chased away from the door.
my friends God has also promised life of eternity and life of blessing with a command that we accept him and follow him before the door closes we should enter in or else God will say get away from me, I don’t know who you are;
Matthew:25:1“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
9“ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
10“But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
11“Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’
12“But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’
13“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour
Accept christ when he is near you
Are you going to ask questions like those people and stand outside God’s house or are you going to try Jesus as that poor man did?
Jesus loves you
