Those who are satisfied in this world,

do not enjoy the Great Banquet of Kingdom of God.

There are a number of people who are deeply satisfied with the great dinner on the Earth and have houses like a castle and do not desire more than that. On the other hand there are a great many people who are not satisfied in this world and homeless.If they ask,they will be satisfied with the great Banquet of Kingdom of God.Let us seek the Kingdom of God,All together!

How does the host respond when people reject his dinner invitation in order to pursue their possessions and relationships?
They say that earthly cares and businesses make it impossible to accept the invitation. The lord of the house gets angry and calls the blind lame poor maimed all the eartly impaired. Then as there are still rooms he orders the servant to compel as many others in as possible. Sounds like he cannot stand having his invitation refused. They seemed to be `forced in` ''get them from the hedges - hiding places? shunning away from God?'' and that those who were invited are in the end warned and kept out. They shall not dine at my table. Blessed are the ones who are poor in spirit the Beatitudes say. Looks like the really poor ones are mostly the rich ones. But those are kept out no second chance. Puzzling. But I undetrstand that as have free will so up to us to accept or refuse the hand of love that invites us. A hand that seems to be more energetic in dragging the poors in. To the others is more of an open vocal invitation. Actually on second thoughts compelling means enthicing - enthusiastic invitation. Very energeting pulling in physically I mean.

The host responded in a very angry way. Many people have been invited by the host. They all never gave attention to his invitation. They began to make excuses. Jesus tells this parable to teach us the fact that Jesus have been called His people for the Kingdom of heaven. But nobody gave attention to this call, and gave no value. Then He called others and filled the house. Here Jesus says For I tell you that none of those men who were invited will taste of my supper.``

Does the manner of the host portray something in Jesus Christ?

The Host was angry and said that the servant should go and compel the lame, blind and the poor. The invited will not have a taste of the dinner.

The host was angry to the people who reject his dinner. He was insulted by neglecting his feast. So it is no wonder that God is angry with the wicked for not repenting and turning to God.

The Parable of the Great Banquet

When one of those who sat at the table with him heard these things, he said to him, "Blessed is he who will feast in the Kingdom of God!"
But he said to him, "A certain man made a great supper, and he invited many people. He sent out his servant at supper time to tell those who were invited, 'Come, for everything is ready now.' They all as one began to make excuses.
"The first said to him, 'I have bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please have me excused.'
"Another said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I must go try them out. Please have me excused.'
"Another said, 'I have married a wife, and therefore I can't come.'
"That servant came, and told his lord these things. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor, maimed, blind, and lame.'
"The servant said, 'Lord, it is done as you commanded, and there is still room.'
"The lord said to the servant, 'Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I tell you that none of those men who were invited will taste of my supper.'"
