Proverbs 9:​1 Wisdom has built her house, ​​She has hewn out her seven pillars;

2 ​​She has slaughtered her meat, ​​She has mixed her wine, ​​She has also furnished her table.

3 ​​She has sent out her maidens, ​​She cries out from the highest places of the city,

4 ​​“Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!” ​​As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,

5 ​​“Come, eat of my bread  ​​And drink of the wine I have mixed.

6 ​​Forsake foolishness and live, ​​And go in the way of understanding

Wisdom prepares a feast for us to partake.  The number seven means“Spiritual Perfection” and here it is being associated with a feast.  Messengers are sent out to notify the people of a feast of wisdom and understanding.  It is a Feast of revelation.

Jesus also spoke a parable of a feast in Matthew 22:1-14.

The servants were sent out three times representing the revelation of three feasts: Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles in verses 3, 4, and 9:

3 and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.

4 Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.” ’

5 But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business.

6 And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them.

7 But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

8 Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy.

9 Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’

10 So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.

11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.

12 So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless.

13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

Notice in verse 8 there are those who are not worthy.  Who are they?  Jesus spoke on this topic in an earlier parable:

Mathew 10:37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

Worthiness centers around “losing” your life, dying to self.  It is all about Love.  Our Heavenly Father has issued the command to “Come!” and people are too busy to receive the revelation of being an active participant in the coming age.  In all three dispensations, Our Heavenly Father issued the call.  Each time those who were invited were too busy with worldly tasks to partake of HIS bread.  The Age of Tabernacles is preceded by the command to Come and dine.  The Bride of Christ is to be consummated.  Are you distracted with other areas of focus?  Have you been misdirected to worldly projects?  Weddings are all about Love and unity.  If you are not clothed in a wedding garment of Love, will you be allowed to stay?  Unprofitable servants (Matt 25), those without revelation of how to serve, will be cast out of the banquet.  “For many are called, but few are chosen.”  Think about it!
