1674. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 27 April 2002 at 8 PM.
Madga was giving Eva a baby shower (a baby party for our new baby). But because the invitations were being sent out later than expected, Madga and Eva decided to change the party date and move it forward one week in case some people did not get their invitation on time. Madga for some reason could not call everyone, so Eva called or informed the forty invited people and told them the baby party would be one week later.
Well, I noticed Eva crying and feeling very depressed. I asked her what was the problem and she told me, that everyone was too busy or had other things to do and they could not come to her baby shower. She just cried and cried and I did not know what to say to her. So I said to her not to worry, those who are suppose to be there will be there. I just held her and quietly prayed to the Lord. Then the Lord gave me the following scripture, which I told to Eva some time later. Forty people (men and women) were invited and only ten people came. My son was the only family member who came. I found it very strange that everyone had some kind of excuse. This made Eva very sad.
From KJV Bible:

Luke 14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
Luke 14:17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
Luke 14:18 And 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.
Luke 14:19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

Luke 14:21 So that servant came, and showed 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.
Luke 14:22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
Luke 14:23 And 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.
Luke 14:24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
