The Marriage Supper of The Lamb
“and after these things:” What things? All things which had happened fulfilling prophecy up to this certain time.
I heard as it were the voice of a great Multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of Mighty Thunderings, saying: .Alleluia, for YAHWEH thy YAHSHUA, OMNIPOTENT REIGNETH”. (Revelation 19:6)
THEN WE READ: .”Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to HIM for the Marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.” (Vs: 7)
The Lamb is, of course, YAHSHUA and his wife is Israel, all Israel, and now Israel is said to be clothed in righteousness, or finally thinking RIGHT, since now YAHSHUA is joining His people here in earth, for the Kingdom Rule. Thus the symbol of this Kingdom rule is the “Light of Life”.
We find in the scripture other suppers or times of eating, and it would seem that here in Revelation, Chapter 19., that many events are taking place, but time with YAHSHUA does not always follow our line of thinking, thus we have here events which John recorded for us, as we try to determine their sequence. In Chapter 18., of Revelation we learn much about this system called Mystery Babylon the Great, and in Chapter 19 of Revelation, after this sequence of events ending with the ending of verse 10., then John gives us the description of who it is that brings down this Satanic system, and how it is done. Thus we have heard the judgment on Great Babylon and then the announcement that now “THE LORD GOD OMNIPOTENT REIGNETH”, then the announcement that the time for the Marriage of the Lamb and Israel has come, and John is then told to write: .”blessed are they which are called unto the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.”
From all Customs, even back through History, this Supper comes before the Wedding, which will include all Israel, or all the Family. Ordinarily the Wedding Supper follows a dress rehearsal (so to speak) for the for the Wedding itself, to be sure that every detail is worked out, and all will be perfect at the Wedding itself. And the Wedding Supper is paid for by the Bridegroom.
Here we read in verse 9: .”Blessed are they who are CALLED”, Could this be, Called for a special purpose? According to Webster’s Dictionary the word BLESSED means those who are Holy, in other words those in this Church Age who were deemed worthy of honour here in earth. In the Old Testament the word “holy” referred to YAHWEH, and to the Children of His Kingdom, to those of a Race who carried this seed which Ezra referred to as, “The Life which came out of HIM”.
