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.

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.

DO NOT JUDGE ABOUT HOLYDAYS

bride-run-to-lion

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV).

One of the most misquoted scriptures is Colossians 2:16-17. Christians have used these verses to rationalize why Christians should no longer exclusively celebrate Biblical Feasts, or justify why they celebrate holidays with a Christian-pagan mixture in them.

First, if you think Paul would advocate mixture in regard to holydays, you need to crack your Bible open and read the whole counsel of Scripture. Second, please notice that we are told that holydays (i.e., festivals) are “a shadow of things to come.” Yeshua (Jesus) is the substance; but we must comprehend that a shadow always resembled its substance. Understand when it comes to holydays, we will be answering to the Creator of all things who is casting the shadow.

Believers are not told to not celebrate Biblical Feasts in Colossians 2:16-17, but not to let anyone judge us with regard to them. Meaning we are not to criticize, censure, condemn, or punish people on how these celebrate a biblical feast, new moon celebration, or a Sabbath day.

If Christians used the same logic for the Ten Commandments as we have for religious festivals, where would the church be? There is an assumption in the statement “Don’t let anyone judge you?” that God’s people are already eating, drinking, and celebrating. It is similar when God states in Matthew 6: “So when you give to the needy” (vs. 2), “when you pray” (vs. 5), and “when you fast” (vs. 16); the Lord is assuming His people are already giving alms, praying and fasting.

The whole nation of Israel is said to be God’s example for us (1 Corinthians 10:4-11). Don’t you think Jesus would have confronted any corrupt thought or practice in Jewish society? Everyone knows Jesus overturned the moneychangers’ tables. Jesus taught against the traditions of men. He also told people that just to look upon a woman in lust was to commit adultery. Have you ever wondered why Jesus never told Jewish believers to cease celebrating the feasts that are/were a shadow of Him?

Don’t you think that if any biblical feast was idolatrous that Jesus would have come out against it, instead of being in the temple participating in the festivities? Jesus was not timid, and He would have come out against the Biblical Feasts, if they were a corrupting influence. Not only did Jesus NOT rebuke the Jews for celebrating His feasts, but He also actually used them as object lessons in teaching His people about the fulfillment in Himself of their biblical traditions.

Biblical Feasts are God’s occasions for celebrating, just as the Ten Commandments are God’s ordained laws. God created us to celebrate Him His glorious ways! Read the gospels. Jesus loved a party! His first miracle was at the wedding feast at Cana where He turned 180 gallons of water into fine wine (John 2:6).

The church has not flushed the Ten Commandments. Why should we throw away His feasts – parties celebrating Him? Don’t you want to come to the feasts that the Lord Himself has invited you to? 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. These Biblical Feasts are audio-visual displays of the prophetic reality of Christ. They can only serve to bring us into a deeper relationship with one another and with Messiah Yeshua.

In 2 Chronicles 8:13, the primitive root for mo-ed (“feasts” in Hebrew) is the Hebrew word ya-ad. Ya-ad is the term used for when Adam intimately knew Eve. This primitive ya-ad root 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. My question has been: If we don’t do Your appointed feasts, Love, can we still marry you?

Think about a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife. Think about them inviting you to celebrate with them; then think about rejecting their offer in order to party with your friends on another day, so you can do anything you want to do any way you want to. That basically what we do when we celebrate Christmas, Easter, and other religious holidays with mixture in them.

Won’t you consider meeting the One who loves your soul at His designated times in His designated places in order to marry Him?
