Yeshua says, “many are called, but few are chosen” when talking about guests invited to the wedding feast (Matthew 22:14). The Greek word for ‘called’ means ‘invited.’ He is saying that many are invited, but few actually make the choice to come. He says that many ‘were not interested’ in coming to the banquet. The Greek word says that they were ‘careless and paid no attention to the invite.’ The Greek word goes deeper to say that they found the invite to the wedding feast ‘rehearsal’ to have no value (Matthew 22:5).
The messenger of Yeshua states that those who ‘obey’ the words in this prophetic book will be ‘blessed.’ In Hebrew, the word for ‘obey’ is shamar or ‘guard’ and means to ‘watch, keep, and preserve.’ Those who guard, keep, and preserve the words in Revelation will be blessed. Whoever doesn’t guard, obey, and protect this prophecy –– by adding to or removing from –– will lose their share in the Etz Chayil and their home in the New Jerusalem.
bs 31 is known as the Eshet Chayil in Hebrew meaning ‘woman of strength’ or ‘warrior woman.’ The Eshet Chayil is an ‘shadow’ of the Bride of Yeshua. Each sentence of this Proverb begins with a consecutive letter of the Hebrew alef-bet.
Just as Adonai created a wife for Adam from a rib portion of his body, so He will prepare a Bride for His Son from a rib portion of Yeshua. It should be the desire of every believer, young or old, to grow into spiritual maturity because Yeshua will not marry an infant, toddler or rebellious teenager. He will only marry only the mature, discerning, wise virgins.
