The first person I have to invite is my wife. I would be selfish to deprive her of this amazing event lol. It would be an ultimate gift to her to sit at this dinner full of great historical figures!
This man Is the reason for everything that I do. I look up to Him, confide in Him, rest in Him, glorify Him, praise Him, love Him, seek Him, worship Him… If you don’t get it by now my next guest would be Jesus. There is just so much I would love to ask Him and tell Him face to face. I mean you’d have to be crazy not to want Jesus at your dinner whether you are a believer or not.
I would love to ask Moses so many questions about all of the miracles he witnessed. I wonder all the time what it was like having to put of with the Israelites, wondering around in the wilderness for 40 years and then finally when it comes time to enter the promised land being forbidden to. Also I would love to hear what he would have to say about his experiences with God up on mount Sinai.
I’d have to invite Adam because I have to ask the why question. Why Adam? Why did ya have to eat the fruit when you knew good and well God said not to? Also how did it feel to be kicked out of paradise and stripped of your glory? Did the fruit taste good? What was it like living for 930 years, What is the original language and names of all the animals? hahaha I’ve got so many questions for everyone I guess lol
John the baptist
Sorry for the graphic photo but its truth what can I say. Anyone who has read the Gospels I’m sure asked the question Why in the world did you eat bugs? Seriously I wonder though, how did it feel to be John the baptist. He was such a peculiar person, between the way he dressed, what he ate and the things he did, his life was far from ordinary. How did it feel to live your life preparing the way for Jesus and not even being able to see Him fulfill all of what He came for. Especially because He was your cousin and was pretty much the same age. Were you frightened during your last moments, or did you feel glad that such a rough life was finally coming to an end and you would be able to rest in paradise soon?
John the Apostle
It is believed that the Apostle John is the one who wrote the book of Revelation. I really just want to hear about the visions and how they made John feel. I would also like for him to explain his visions in great detail while my next guest is in the room.
Joseph the son of Jacob
Joseph had prophetic dreams and interpreted other peoples dreams so hopefully he would be able to tell me exactly what all of the revelations meant, symbolized and represented. Also he has such an amazing story. Being sold into slavery by his siblings, being accused of getting a little too close to Potifar’s wife, thus going from a slave to prisoner, interpreting a fortunate dream for someone and asking him to remember you only to be forgotten for a while, finally being released from prison and becoming second in command next to pharaoh helping all of Egypt and your family etc… There’s so much to talk about hahaha. This dinner would have to last like forever.
King David, the man after God’s own heart. There is so much to learn from this gentleman. His bravery and skills as a warrior came strictly from his confidence that the God that he worshiped would make him prosperous. We are all warriors like David, just not on a physical battlefield. We are spiritual warriors and we do our fighting with prayer. I would love to learn from David. To be considered a man after God’s own heart is a prestigious title. I’d rather be that than the president or king of any land here on earth.
The apostle Peter
The apostle Peter was probably the closest to Jesus of all the disciples. I wrote about him in a post called doubt . It would be amazing learning about what it was like witnessing God in the flesh. I would also love to ask why it was so hard for him to have faith in certain instances.
I would love to invite Elijah to the dinner because there is so much to learn from such a powerful prophet. It would be amazing if he could take me back to the moment he was brought to heaven. Sheesh, I just realized that Elijah and Enoch are the oldest humans of all time hahaha.
Clearly this dinner would be simply for me to ask an infinite amount of questions lol. I would love to listen and learn from such great people and having my wife beside me experiencing it all would make it that much better!!!
How about you though? If you could invite 10 people to a dinner historical, current futuristic or fictional who would it be?
Leave a comment below listing the people you’d invite and why 🙂 Lets chat about this lol
