ETERNAL LIFE: Knowing real “Powerball” coupons from cheap copies!

"But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?' And the man was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' For many are called, but few are chosen."
Matthew 22:11-14
Two winning Powerball [Powerball is a multi-state lottery with huge million dollar payoffs] tickets, worth $100,000 each, were invalidated because they were purchased through a broker who used incorrect “play slips.” They were marked by an automatic process rather than by hand, as required.

[San Gabriel Valley Daily Bulletin, unknown date, 1996; 2.]

One thing is for sure, God’s rules of entry are even more rigorous. Those improperly dressed and those improperly washed will be shut out, just as those in Noah’s day were. Jesus said, unless you are born-again, you shall not see the Kingdom of God.

One of the greatest concerns in the ministry today is that many of our people may not be saved … having received improper “play slips”.
