He Prepares the Table
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies…”
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Rev. 3:20
A beautiful banquet table is being prepared for the most splendid banquet in history. You have a special invitation to this banquet if you are a child of God.
When Jesus knocked on the door of your heart and you asked Him to come into your life, you were inviting Him in to sup or have dinner with you. Now you are invited to come to the Fathers house and have dinner with Him and the rest of the Family. You have a special invitation and a special seat at the banquet table.
He has prepared a seat at this banquet table for you even in the presence of your enemies. No matter what others say against you, you are a special invited guest at this “Family Banquet.” When Jesus ascended back to heaven He said He was going to prepare a place for each of us. The place He has prepared is not just a place but also a position in the Fathers house and a seat at the “big table.”
As you grew up in an earthly family you may have had a special seat at the dinner table. As the years went by and you returned home for special dinners you may have returned to sit in that same seat. The seat is yours not because you bought the chair but because you have a special position in the family as a son or a daughter. The same is true if you are a child of God you have a position in the heavenly family and you have a seat at the banquet table.
The Lord is knocking on the door of your heart; if you have never asked Him to come in, please ask Him now. Today is the day!
