How the traditional Jewish wedding helps explain the return of Christ
I'm getting ready to celebrate my 29th wedding anniversary and today God reminded me how EXCITED I was for the entire year of engagement anticipating being a bride and marrying my best friend. And... on my wedding day the pure joy, love, and celebration we experienced together is priceless in my memories! I still get goosebumps. :) I tell my hubby everyday how much I love him, but LOVE God soooo much more! There are no words of how joyous and ecstatic His people will be on the last wedding in human history (so well said Pastor Jimmy) and long for the day we are caught up in the sky with Jesus! Beautiful post!!
I love that pic of the top of this post, of the wedding table set for His Bride! I can imagine the entire Body of Christ that know Him, sitting at the table of the Wedding Feast of the Lamb, and enjoying those amazing 7 years from Heaven above with Him!! Living for Jesus until He comes for us!!
What a wonderful purifying hope. 1 John 3:2,3. May we abide in Him so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be embarrassed before Him at His coming. 1 Jn 2:28
I find myself looking at the sky every day, multiple times a day.
I am so ready! I hope it happens today!!!
My heart is overflowing with joy! Thank you!
LOVE your teachings thank you!!
You say "During that same seven-year period, believers will be celebrating the Wedding Supper of the Lamb"
Where does it show that in the bible?
Excellent movie "Before the Wrath" explains about the marriage supper of the Lamb. You can find it on Pureflix and also on Daystar.
Hi Jimmy. I have question re the millennial reign. First, per your view about 1/4 of population survives the 7 year tribulation. Second, those raptured were 'changed' and now have put on incorruptible bodies. So, if when Jesus returns after the wedding feast with His bride to establish his 1000 year reign, are there still people on earth; mortal people who have not accepted him and still will live with life and death, marriage and family. The Bible talks about us 'reigning with Him." I guess that refers to this 1000 year period. Do people still come to accept Christ as Lord, even after he is ruling on earth? Are they still accorded 'once to live and then the judgment? I guess this depends on the Judgment Seat of Christ; at beginning or end of the 1000 year reign. With people still on earth choosing to accept or reject his Lordship - even with Him ruling, that could explain who is deceived at the end when the beast is released once last time; as those 'changed' are sealed and would not be able to follow the beast. I've not heard teaching much about what occurs during the 1000 year reign and will we effectively have mortals and immortals on the earth. Curious to hear your thoughts.
