God’s Invitation

Rev. 22:17

Intro. These are the closing words of God to man. This is God’s last call in the Scriptures. This invitation is a window into the heart of God and a word of witness, welcome, and warning to man. Please note…

I. The Insight Of God’s Invitation.

C. God’s promise to us, Jn. 6:37. He will not turn you away.

II. The Implication Of God’s Invitation. There are three implications. There is the implication of…

A. Man’s Problem, Romans 3:23.

B. Man’s Pain, Text (“lonely, searching, thirsty…”)

C. Man’s Peril, Romans 6:23.

III. The Imperative Of God’s Invitation. There is a sense of urgency. This is God’s last call. This invitation is imperative because of…

A. The lateness of the hour, i.e., the feast in Luke 14; the wedding in Matthew 25.

B. The lies of Satan. The Father of Lies will do everything he can to keep you from saying “yes” to God’s invitation.
