This Tweet Just In: Banquet Ahead

I’ve been seeing this banquet
smelling it, tasting it,
wondering when I could just
stumble on into it
instead of just dreaming
the desert is breaking
into an oasis
of mirages or something.

See, I’m no J. Alfred,
boredom’s not my problem,
it’s not empty gazes
that I’m trying to fathom
but how to survive
this stretch of my travels
without losing sight
of the city of Zion.

That’s when I got
as mad as a hatter
when I realized
what was the matter
with someone like me
who’s sitting and feasting
at the Lord’s banquet
when I open the Bible.

It’s sweeter than honey
and the fruit’s even richer
the more that you eat
the more you can savor
the meat of God’s wisdom
and His love that’s forever
the more you can drink in
the glory of Christ Jesus.

So come to the banquet
feast in God’s presence
come with your prayers
come with your hungers
He won’t disappoint you
if truly you’re seeking
to feast in the light
of His glorious provision.


Deuteronomy 4:29-31
But from there you will seek the LORD your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, you will return to the LORD your God and obey his voice. For the LORD your God is a merciful God.

Psalm 34:8-10
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack! The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

Isaiah 55:6-8
Seek the LORD while he may be found;
call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.

Matthew 22:1-14 The Parable of the Wedding Feast
And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son, and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they would not come. Again he sent other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast.”’ But they paid no attention and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them. The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the main roads and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.’ And those servants went out into the roads and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests. “But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment. And he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are called, but few are chosen.”
