The parable of the marriage that Jesus Christ teaches includes a request that we must fulfil with our neighbour, "to compel people to enter the kingdom of God"; and we must understand why Jesus uses the word "compel".

In earlier times, before Jesus, the Bible teaches how God himself, through different ways compels his people to enter in His kingdom and fights a battle for our souls, but in the parable of the marriage, we receive from Jesus the teaching of this difficult labour, or we could say commandment. We could easily say that it's an attitude for the late days in which we could be currently, according to the things that are happening, but really this "compel them to come in" is a universal part of the Gospel of Christ, in other words, we better try strongly to compel people around us and to those whom we preach so they receive salvation, as their lives depend on this for eternal life.

Although God himself can do everything, we must understand that the ministry of ambassadors of the Kingdom of God is in the hands of all his people all over the world. We are collaborators of Christ. Salvation has been done by Him; now this request is made to us, so that we make the effort, those who have come in through the door "Jesus Christ" so that others come in too.

If we followed this text literally, we would have to physically force people to enter the Kingdom of God. So let's see the labour spiritually.

How to compel people to enter the marriage of the Lamb, to marry Jesus Christ for eternity?

Talking spiritually, the conquest of a soul for God is related in the conquest of Jericho in the book of JOSHUA, because in this chapter we can see how faith and obedience to God by those who commit themselves in the ministry, bring as result the victory of the Gospel of Christ in the souls of those who are preached.

It is not only a question of entering the Kingdom of God, but also that we may remain subject to Christ, while we are on Earth, and for this we have some tools that we will read in the study VIRTUE.

To compel them to enter to the Lambs marriage, as Jesus Christ requests, it is necessary to make sure that those being preached have understood the Gospel, when possible by making them repent in the moment of the preaching and that they receive Christ in that moment, because that way they will be in the hands of Christ from that moment and by their own will, as those who don't have Christ in them, live exposed to the hostile system of the world, a world that is handled by Satan, who seeks not only for the failure of people's life and physical death, which will come, but spiritual death here on earth and in eternity.

To enter the Kingdom of God must be the aim of every person. To enter there must be a door; and the Door is Christ, as said in the Bible, and to receive Christ, it is necessary to have faith in Jesus Christ as the universal door, the Way of salvation for every soul of every nation. For this to happen, Gospel preaching is needed, then if after this, they do not want to enter... the Lord says: Compel them to come in, and let my house be filled.



Matthew 22

1And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, 2The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14For many are called, but few are chosen.

How amazing, that having God himself offered us eternity we reject Him, truly we will never realise the sadness of God for those who get lost for not loving him. In the same way the happiness of the Lord is immense when he looks into the hearts of those who love Him. This parable alerts how God tries in all ways that man may become saved by granting him different alternatives. Finally, as it couldn't be in any other way, both bad and good are welcome, as really no one is just, but what it explains to us is, that what is needed to be worn is the wedding garment, which is the blood of Christ, which cleans us of all our sins and through whose death we have access to the Father, that those good and bad, both must repent from living their lives apart from God.

Luke 14

15And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. 16Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: 17And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. 18And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. 20And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. 21So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. 22And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. 23And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. 24For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

God bid many, means He bid every one, the Israeli people as well as the rest of the people on Earth, every one found on the highways, and not only the perfect ones, but the poor, the maimed, the halt and the blind, as that is what we are: poor in spirit, maimed in the labour of God, halt as we do not support our lives in God and blind as we don't see his way. The Lord compelled me to come in, and I bless Him, and I say to you, my dear brother; come in!

To "compel them" there are various resources, some we will do and others God will do.




Joshua 1

9Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

With this verse we begin to empower our neighbour so he does not stop to fight in this world, enemy of God, having confidence that the hand of God will be over him him.

Psalm 31

24Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

Those of us who wait in Yahweh are told to be strong, and in deed, even though, those who are of God know that salvation is free, but must learn to battle not to fall.

Isaiah 35

4Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.

Recompense, not of salvation which is obtained by Jesus in the cross, but a promise to empower and maintain in salvation all those who make the effort.

Luke 13

24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Those who love the things in the world more than the things of God will not be able to come in, and for carrying on their backs the weight of the richness of the world and of their own lives with their own projects, will not fit through the straight gate. To come in we must come with nothing, we must leave everything behind.

2 Timothy 2

1Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.



Deuteronomy 28: reed this chapter and find out the good and bad consequences of obeying God.

Job 34

31Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more.

The man who receives the discipline of God and recognises that it was necessary, once he/she repents, he/she, must let God know by talking to Him in prayer. Even though God sees our hearts and knows everything, prayer is needed.

Psalm 39

11When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.

Do not leave God’s ways; don't force Him to correct you, because He, as a good father disciplines his children.

Proverb 3

 11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction.

Isaiah 10

And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?

The warning of the Word of God is clear, man must reconcile with God. The messengers will compel with warning of the correction of God, because many convert from their enmity against God and receive Him with joy, and later thank the Lord for intervening in their lives. All will die and will resurrect to face the judgement of God.

Hebrews 10

29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

There is no salvation for eternal life for those who despise the salvation offered by God. There is no other way of salvation than by accepting the sacrifice of the Son of God. As the Scriptures say ...16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Jesus’ words. 


Psalm 32

7Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.

The same way as in the battle of Jericho, these are the weapons that God provides us with, the songs of warship and the prayer, and these will compel them in. See the fall of Jericho in JOSHUA, as I mentioned in the beginning of this study, in it you will find the priests with the trumpets of God playing them for 7 days to make the walls fall, the walls of the soul of a person who receives Christ.


John 6

27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

We must labour for the wisdom of the Word of God, because there, is where we find His mind, and how we receive the wisdom of God and His love, so that love in us gives fruit.


Isaiah 49

1The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.

God knows us before the foundation of the world and loves us, how wasn’t He going to compel us to come in His kingdom.

Matthew 7

7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you…

Matthew 20

16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

2 Thessalonians 1

11Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling

2 Timothy 1

9Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began…


Psalm 25

3Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

Isaiah 66

24And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.


Psalm 107

11Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High.

Isaiah 65

2I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts.


Deuteronomy 32

35To me belongeth vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

This is precisely what God wants to set us free from.


James 4

7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.


Psalm 34

11Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

Psalm 111

10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

The fear of God is for salvation. There is no fear in love, as the Word says.

Romans 3

18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.


and there is victory for those who want:

John 16

33 …but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

He does the work; we only need faith because faith transforms our lives into lives that give fruit.

Revelation 2

7He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Revelation 3

5He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. 6He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Revelation 12

11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Revelation 21

7He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

final bIblE text

1 John 4

18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.


I am writing not only to those who preach, but also to the ones that receive, therefore I exhort both to be virtuous in the spiritual way of excellence: prayer of love.

Those who preach and the rest of the brothers must assemble and must share the names of those to whom they have preached so that the church prays to God that He may “compel” them to come in the kingdom of God, because as we pray we make war against those powers that stop their hearts to receive faith.

God entrusts us to pray at all times so He may guide us in the labour of making people know the Way of salvation, to come in the kingdom of God and to maintain them selves and our selves in His way until His come.

Those who accept the Gospel must pray at the same time so that God shall make their doubts clear, shall give them faith in the Word of God so they may come to know Him personally, and therefore no one deceives them. They may then be assured in the truly Way of salvation, that Yah-Shua, Jesus Christ, revels on to them by the Holy Spirit.

Let us be virtuous in this labour, I guarantee that results don’t delay. God bless you in a great way and “compel them” to come in to the glorious kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Yahshua. Our neighbour's life is worth it, Jesus Christ gave His life, how wouldn’t we preach, help and pray?


  • Your want to know God, but you know the way is not through organized religion,, nor by sects, nor by society. The world has failed. ...I pray for them;  I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours... John 17:9. Prayer of Yahshua, Jesus Christ.

  • For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Prophecy of Isaiah 9:6.

  • I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Words of Yahshua - Jesus Christ. John 14:6.
  • If you really seek God, begin today the new life though the true hand of God. The Gospel is the message for all nations, no matter their race, their origins or culture. God is the savior of those from humanity who open their hearts to Him.

  • ...Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  1Corinthians 15:58.
