MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB

wedding-feast-2

Have you ever thought about the consummation of the ages – the Marriage Supper of the Lamb? Yeshua the Bridegroom and His beloved Bride married as one … feasting together.

All Biblical Feasts are important bridal markers and part of His eternal Word. Remember how a couple days ago, we contemplated how the spring feasts of the Lord speak of Jesus’ first coming. The fall feasts speak of Jesus’ second coming. Hanukkah and Purim are pictures of His Church becoming the Bride of Christ. We also saw that the primitive root to the word “feasts” in 2 Chronicles 8:13 is the Hebrew word ya-ad. Ya-ad is the term used for when Adam intimately knew Eve. This primitive ya-ad root literally implies that the Lord is summoning His people to meet Him at His stated time, He is directing us into a certain position, and He is engaging us for marriage. Question: If we don’t celebrate with the Lord at His appointed feasts, can we still marry Him? Please refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/do-not-judge-about-holydays/.

Let’s focus on the two winter feasts portraying the Church’s journey to become His Bride. Hanukkah shows us a small ragtag group overcoming overwhelming odds to overthrow the Anti-Christ of their day while Purim displays the rightful queen of the land standing against the annihilation of her people – God’s people – for such a time as this.

These winter biblical feasts illustrate that becoming a precious part of God’s pure and spotless Bride doesn’t just automatically happen.

The parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25 tells that us the gospel of the kingdom of heaven can be pictured as five wise virgins and five foolish ones. Please understand that these “virgins” are all believers.

The foolish virgins had the door shut on them, as the wise virgins went in to the marriage supper, because the wise ones had made themselves ready (Matthew 25:10-12). How did these blood-bought wise ones make themselves ready? The voice of many waters in Revelation 19 tells us: “And 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 the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.’ And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints Then He said to me, ‘Write: Blessed are those who are called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!’ And He said to me, ‘These are the true sayings of God’” (Revelation 19:6-9 NKJV).

Notice that it is the essence of the clothing – “the righteous acts of the saints” (i.e., righteousness) – that makes Lamb’s wife ready for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The root meaning behind the Hebrew word for “righteousness” tells us that righteousness is a State of Being. Doing does not come before our State of Being, but our righteous acts are an outflow of who we truly are. Know that the Messiah’s Bride will resonate at the same frequency as her Beloved Bridegroom. Those things in our lives that are not plumb with God’s measuring line of righteousness (according to His Word) will cause us to resonate at a lower frequency than a pure and spotless one.

Notice that clothing is also the determining factor for the inappropriately dressed wedding guest that gets thrown out of the wedding banquet because of it: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son …the wedding feast was filled with guests. But when the king came in to view the guests, he looked intently at a man there who had no wedding garment. And he said, Friend, how did you come in here without putting on the [appropriate] wedding garment? And he was speechless (muzzled, gagged). Then the king said to the attendants, Tie him hand and foot, and throw him into the darkness outside; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth. For many are called (invited and summoned), but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:1, 10-13 AMP). Notice that the king calls this wedding guest “friend,” which means that he is a believer. For more on this subject, see https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2012/12/31/here-comes-the-bride-part-3/.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the twelfth and final stage of a Jewish Wedding. It’s for all guests invited by the Father of the Bride who are appropriately dressed.

HEAVEN DOES NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. NEITHER DID JESUS WHILE HE WAS ON EARTH.

ascension-city

Jesus celebrated the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) documented in John 10:22-23, which is literally the celebration of the overthrow of “Christmas.” However, the Anti-Christ did celebrate “Christmas” in 168 BC by sacrificing a pig and by putting a sun god idol on the Brazen Altar in Jerusalem on December 25th. As you probably know, this was a statement of utter contempt to the Jews and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Please refer to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvrVXjd-mm8.

If you are interested in a heavenly view of Christmas from a Bridal Heart perspective, you’ll greatly benefit from this book which covers all angles historically and scripturally => https://www.amazon.com/SANTA-TIZING-Whats-wrong-Christmas-clean/dp/1607911159.

Christmas will be redeemed, but it won’t be “Christmas.” Jesus birth is too precious to taint with paganism and idolatry.

Do you know the actual root meaning of the word “Christmas”? The root meaning behind the word “mass” signifies “you are dismissed” or “the dismissal.” At its root, the word “Christmas” literally means “Christ’s dismissal” or “Christ, you are dismissed.” If you are interested in the specifics of this, please check out => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/bi-polar-nature-of-christmas/ and here’s another article about the Christmas Crux of Christ’s Dismissal, which is in reality the CRUX OF HIS DWELLING PRESENCE => http://wp.me/p158HG-Dx

PERSONAL APPLICATION OF SCRIPTURE

mirror-girl

All of Scripture has a personal application. When it says in Revelation 13:18 “Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666,” it communicates that the beast (or antichrist) can be within you and me, because three “6”s speak of a completely selfish man.

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:1-5 NKJV).

There are many beasts and many false prophets, and I believe that one day the very ones in the book of Revelation will appear. But I really don’t concern myself with it, because MY FOCUS IS SOLELY ON LOVE (YESHUA). So… I look at myself and my desire to be more like Him; therefore, if I am being completely selfish, I want to first recognize it by being humble and teachable. Then I want to confess my sin and turn from my wicked ways (repent)… which are all fundamentals of the Christian faith.

ETERNAL REALITIES OF GOD’S MARKS OF TIME

shadow

No Man’s Land is the place where people daily yield to the crucifixion process, which enables their Kingdom of Self to disappear and the Kingdom of God to appear within you and me, and without (Matthew 16:24; Matthew 3:11; Galatians 2:20; Galatians 5:24). Know that the crucifixion process includes crucifixion, burial and resurrection, just as it did for Yeshua.

In No Man’s Land, Crucified Ones rightly judge the shadow of things to come, as embodied in God’s marks of time – holydays, new moons and Sabbath days – so Christ’s Body can rightly connect to the true substance of the Mature Head – Messiah Yeshua (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV). When God created man in His own image, the Hebrew word tzelem derived from tzel was used, which means a shadow.

Therefore, one of the interpretations of the “shadow of things to come” in Colossians 2:17 is the Body is of Christ, which will embody the eternal realities of God’s marks of time. Christ’s Body in its fullness will become a perfect One New Man in Christ; and these Biblical marks of time are key to it all, since the spirit of the anti-Christ seeks to first change God’s times and then His laws (Daniel 7:25).

PURIM – THE FEAST OF DELIVERANCE

esther-bow

Today is the Biblical Feast of Deliverance called Purim. Basically, Purim celebrates the events in the Book of Esther. We get the name “Purim” from Haman having cast lots (purim) to determine the day on which to destroy the Jews.

Today, another PURIM DELIVERANCE is in the works. Before we go into those details, please know that when I sought the LORD about celebrating the Biblical Feasts of YHVH in His Kingdom, I heard a zinger one-liner: “Just as the Spirit of the Living God has seven flows that manifests in nine fruits and gifts, so do the Feasts of the Lord.” There are nine Bridal Feasts if we include the whole council of the Word of God.

Even though Hanukkah and Purim are considered to be minor, commemorative feasts for most people who celebrate these feasts, the sons of the Living God, who restore all things, will go to the elevated state and place that resonates at the frequency of God’s Word. Always remember that Yeshua (Jesus) is called the Word of God (Revelation 19:13).

It is written in John 5 that Yeshua went up to Jerusalem for an unnamed feast. According to Lambert Dolphin’s research on what feast this was, the only feast that the Apostle John could be referring to is Purim, since this feast fell on the Sabbath (John 5:9). This was the only feast to fall on the Sabbath between the years of 25-35 CE – Purim in 28 CE. It would be just like the Most High God to intentionally hide the name of this feast to parallel how the Name of the LORD was likewise deliberately left out (hidden in) of the Book of Esther.

According to the Hebrew Sages, any day that is marked by special deliverance by the LORD can be called a “Purim.” Even the eternal deliverance bought for us with Yeshua’s death on the cross, is foreshadowed by the Day of Atonement (i.e., Yom Kippur). In the Tanakh, Yom Kippurim can be read as Yom Ke-Purim – a “day like Purim,” which will always be the greatest Purim of all.

Even though Purim is a fun-filled feast that rejoices over God’s Great Incredible Grace through His Divine Deliverance in times past, there is a prophetic dimension to be fulfilled during the Seventh Day on God’s Calendar (2 Peter 3:8). Recall this unnamed feast of an unnamed God was celebrated on the Sabbath in John 5.

“Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill [war], and said, Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ “ (Acts 17:22-28).

According to the Midrash Esther, Purim is said to be celebrated even after the final redemption in the End of Days, because there is a deliverance that only the hand of God can provide that will lead to the establishment of the Messianic Kingdom upon the earth. The Anti-Messiah is clearly a type of Haman who desires to eliminate all of God’s people both Jew and Gentile alike. The “man of sin” or the Messiah of Evil (2 Thess 2:3) wants to provide the ultimate “Final Solution.” Even now, the label “Hitler” is thrown around casually and frequently.

Just as Haman’s plans to destroy our Jewish brethren boomeranged upon him where he hung on his own gallows, so will this Anti-Messiah (i.e. Anti-Christ) as the Corporate Bride of Christ (i.e. Queen Esther) goes before Her Husband and King to ask that Her people be spared.

We all have a part in this Kingdom Day in His-Story. The Spirit of Haman wants to destroy all of God’s people and the Spirit of the Living God wants to set them free. For such a time as this, may His Bride arise and Her enemies be scattered. Let the Bride’s enemy(s) be hung on his own gallows as the King of Kings decrees.

GIVING THANKS FOR MIRACLES

The Intersection of Thanksgiving and Chanukah

HOLID_05

With my husband being a descendant of three families from the Mayflower, it is no surprise that Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. Then to top it off with Chanukah! Well… Talk about divine!!!

Just as Chanukah is a festival commemorating a miraculous eight day supply of oil, so is Thanksgiving a feast that came about by miracles. Let’s first quickly visit the miracle of Chanukah, then take a brief tour of the Pilgrims.

Pull up a chair. Let me tell you about a ban of radicals who overcame overwhelming odds to preserve their culture and religion from utter annihilation. Had Judah the Maccabee and a very small remnant not taken their courageous stand against the Antichrist (Antiochus Epiphanes IV), both Judaism and Christianity most likely would not exist today. Not only does Chanukah celebrate God’s people military victory by a small ragtag righteous remnant, but the miraculous provision of oil needed to light God’s Temple so they could clean it out and rededicate it to the Lord.

When the Maccabees stormed Jerusalem and its Temple, they found one flask of pure oil which still bore the unbroken seal of the High Priest in God’s Temple, as they sifted through the devastation. With no windows and eight days needed to make the purest oil, they took a gigantic step of faith when they lit the oil to begin to purify the Temple. Their faith was meet by the All-Sufficient God, who miraculously extended the oil to last eight days, not one. This is the reason we are given that the Feast of Dedication and Lights (Chanukah) is celebrated for eight days. Hum… Could the miraculous supply of oil and cleansing of God’s Temple be related to the parable of the five prepared virgins that have their lamps full when the Bridegroom comes (Matthew 25:1-13)?

The Pilgrims would not have been accused of being wise their first year in the New World. Forty-five of the 102 Mayflower colonists died the first winter due to disease, lack of food, and general conditions on board ship in the Cape Cod area.

The Pilgrims that came to America in 1620 were nonconformists refusing to accept an authority beyond the revealed Word of God as well as insisting on the freedom to have one-on-one communication with God. With the Pilgrims, this translated to an egalitarian mode – the removal of inequalities among people. They were a logical fruit of the Reformation and the key to life for them was God’s written instructions in the Bible. Both the Pilgrims and Puritans sought to bring the church into a state of purity that matched, and even succeeded, faith as it had been in the time of Christ (Messiah). Their great hope in the King of Kings and the gospel of the Kingdom of God was what allowed any of them to survive. Miracles abounded.

Divine intervention was the name of the game in the harsh winter of 1620-21. Nearly out of food, they rationed five kernels of corn a day. Most of the mothers perished, because they gave their portions to their starving children. Though their suffering was intense, God’s hand was on them.

The first miracle was their blunder of missing the Hudson River, which caused them to suffer so greatly in Cape Cod, but it had actually saved them from being ambushed by a tribe that probably would have killed them.

The second miracle: When they emerged from the ship in the Spring, they desperately needed a large, plowed field, but they couldn’t fit plows on the Mayflower. They found three acres of plowed farmland that had been abandoned by the natives on the heights above Plymouth Rock.

The third miracle: An English speaking Native American named Samoset who walked up to the settlers and asked for some beer. Samoset then took them to meet the young brave Squanto who had been taken captive by Englishmen and escaped. When Squanto returned to the New World, the friendly chief of the Wampanoag tribe – Massasoit – living next to Plymouth took him in. Squanto taught the Pilgrims to grow maize (corn), which was a God-send because the wheat, rye and barley that they’d brought would not have taken to sandy soil.

The next fall, the crop thrived enough that the remaining Pilgrims decided to celebrate not only surviving, but thriving with their new found friends. When they invited Massasoit and his immediate family to come to a feast, little did they know that to the natives, family was 99 braves. Good thing that the Wampanoag tribe was so generous. They brought venison and wild turkey to share side-by-side, as one.

At the heart of Thanksgiving is the gratefulness everyone shared, as William Bradford put five kernels of corn on everybody’s plate. He then asked everyone there to tell of five things that they were thankful for that first year in Plymouth… and that my friends is considered our first Thanksgiving in America. Gratefulness was a deeply ingrained value, because they were grounded and founded in God’s Word.

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 2:

“Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning” (Exodus 27:20 NIV)

The Golden Lampstand in God’s Temple was only fed by the purest of olive oil. In fact, the oil that lit the Temple Menorah had to be pressed, not crushed. Do you feel hard pressed at times? Remember that that the Lord disciplines the ones He loves. To even harvest the olives, their trees must be battered with sticks. Then the olives are pressed or squeezed, depending on its use.

The oil for God’s Light had to be absolutely pure from the start; therefore, the oil was made meticulously by pressing each olive gently until one drop of pure oil emerged. What a picture of the care the Lord our God takes in our lives!

Exodus 27:20 says that the Golden Lampstand is to be lit continually. It was continual in the sense that it was kindled every single day without exception, being lit from evening until morning. Another fascinating fact about the very intricate Golden Lampstand is that it was made from one solid gold ingot. This was not just an average gold ingot, but a 125-pounder, which was supposed to represent indivisibility. It speaks of a person having one set of values – and only one – where all areas of your life must derive from the same set of values. Everything on and in the menorah had to be hammered out of the gold ingot, including the almond bud and blossom lamps. Nothing could be made separately, nothing. It would have been easier to make the pieces of the menorah separately, and then attach them; but God absolutely forbid His Temple Menorah to made in a piece mill fashion. You and all of mankind has been made in God’s own image (Genesis 1:26). Even though God perfectly made us as He designed and desires we are still bring formed into the image of the Son. Take heart everyone. The Bible tells us, “But He knows the way I take; when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold” (Job 23:10 NASB).

THINK ABOUT IT: Please select the participation questions that best suit you (or there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] Give five things that you are thankful for this past year.

[2] Discuss the making of the purest oil and how this relates to you.

[3] Do you ever wonder why God is taking His own sweet time in your difficult circumstance? Do you ever feel like He is meticulously pressing out one drop of pure anointing oil out of you? Please share.
