The King’s Invitation
Sometimes in my private time with the Lord, the Holy Spirit gives me revelation that I feel to be for me, and other times the Lord gives me revelations that I feel He wants me to share with others. I felt the desire to share these revelations in prophetic blogs, so perhaps this is for you.
As I was sitting at His feet, I kept hearing the words “There’s an invitation.” I sat in this moment, hearing this phrase over and over again, and asked the Holy Spirit what this meant; I felt that He was saying there is an invitation for us to come to Jesus.
I was pondering on the fact that I don’t know of any other king that allows you to come to him and be in his presence at his palace without an invitation, besides King Jesus. Every other visit to meet with a king would require that you have an invitation, which is only received if you are essentially someone special enough to get that “honor.” Perhaps you are a part of their bloodline, you may be a servant or worker, you may be a close friend or family member, or you would be a special guest (meaning you deserved your place at the table for doing certain works, reaching certain accomplishments, or recognition).
If you do receive an invite, then you would go to their palace with your best attire, your most pleasant and polite behavior, and display the upmost respect. The whole posture of your being would change in their presence because of their level of importance and the high honor it is to be there. Your posture changes when you’re in the presence of royalty.
My question to you is: how much more should our posture change when the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords comes into the room? How much of an honor and a privilege is it that this King I speak of made a way for us to come to Him with endless invitations? We are freely welcomed to come and sit at His feet, and to have access to Him. Jesus does not look at our accolades, our works, our level in society, our occupation, our fame, or our money, before sending an invitation to have a seat at His table or to be in His presence. In fact, He is near to the broken-hearted. He is even more compassionate towards the lost. He leaves the ninety-nine just to get the one that has gone astray; that is how much He cares for them.
Personally, I cannot name a single king or queen who would go to the lowly and meet them where they are. I do not know of royalty who would go to the most broken person on the street and say, “Come eat with me at my table, I want to help you, heal you, and show you love like you have never seen before.” No other king cares so much about the regular people in His nation that He lowers Himself off the throne, one that He did not earn but fell into based on family history (unlike King Jesus), and becomes flesh just so He could feel the trials and pain that the people feel.
This Christ that I am speaking of has paid the ultimate price for His people. He left His throne to become flesh, sacrificed Himself, and died on the cross so that you would no longer need to be strictly invited to be with Him based on your own works; rather, now you have free access to come sit in His presence and know Him. Who is this man that He cares for us, the lowly, the sinners, and the poor?
I felt as though there were some of you who know about this sacrifice. You know Jesus at a superficial level and you know what He has done for you, but you haven’t felt the depth's of His love because of your own hinderance; at the root of this hinderance is fear.
Perhaps you do not feel worthy of His love, so you push Him away. Maybe you have sinned so much so that you feel as though you don’t deserve to go to Him. Regardless, the Bible tells us that there is no fear in love; perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18). Therefore, if you are fearful then this fear is not only coming from the enemy, but it is also indicative of the fact that you simply have not been perfected in God’s love for you.
If you are going to run, you might as well run to Him, not away from Him. The enemy wants you to distance yourself from God because the more distance, the more he can get inside your head and fill it with lies because he is the father of lies.
God is saying that there is an invitation for you to come to Him. You do not have to prove yourself. You don’t need to be fearful of not being deserving of His love or fear that you are not good enough. You don’t need to be invited to come to Him and sit at His table based on doing something in return. He already made a way for you to come. You are already welcomed.
We love Him because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). The fact that He loves you unconditionally means that there is nothing to be deserved. The truth is, we don’t deserve anything, yet He gives us everything. I just felt like some of you needed permission to run to Jesus, so here it is.
