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.

HOLY PRIESTHOOD OFFERING SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES

Worship Man

For such a time as this, the Master of the Wedding Banquet is revealing what the Bride of the Messiah (Christ) needs to do in order to be ready. Hidden within the bowels of Scripture are the instructions for God’s Holy Priesthood on how to make spiritual sacrifices, which will culminate in them becoming a glorious part of His Pure & Spotless Bride.

“Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stone, are being built up a spiritual house, A HOLY PRIESTHOOD, TO OFFER UP SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES ACCEPTABLE TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST” (1 Peter 2:4-5 NKJV).

Before we go into the three progressive crucifixion steps for the Bride’s Baptism of Fire, we need to understand the concept of “spiritual sacrifices” according to the Messiah’s instruction. Please be patient as we lay some foundations, so His Crucified Ones can literally see how to hit the Father’s bull’s eye of righteousness.

Some Christians believe that the instructions of Moses on the priests, the altar, and the sacrificial system are not true for us today. That’s not what Yeshua (Jesus) said: “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47 NKJV). Yeshua has also told us that: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17 NKJV). That word “fulfill” means to fill it full of meaning. Will we do things exactly as the Levitical priests did in their day? No, but God’s Holy Priesthood will apply those Biblical principles and ask the Spirit of the Living God how we can fill them full of meaning in our day. BTW – We will not be going into what Judaism or Christianity has taught. We will only stick to the things that Yeshua tells us if you believe these things, then you will believe Me.

The Levitical Sacrificial Service were actually audio-visual aids to explain certain profound, basic principles on how we relate to God, how we are to live with one another, and how to be reconciled with one another. Within the instructions of the priests, the altar, and the sacrificial system are the basic of our faith. Without these ancient foundations, the cross of Christ means nothing.

The very beginning of the Levitical Sacrificial System starts with the first word in the Book of Leviticus – “vyihkra.” The Hebrew letter “alef” in this word is made small, and if one dissects this word Hebraically, a person understands: If you are going to be called of the Lord, your strength must be made small, so His strength may be made large in your life. Any person called of the Lord will share this testimony. Recall that John the Baptist (who was a Levite) gave this exact testimony in being a forerunner of the Messiah: “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30 NKJV). In a sense, John the Baptist was saying I must go away (disappear), so He can come forward (appear).

The following are five reasons Yeshua of Nazareth gives on why we need to have sacrifices, and why we still have a priestly sacrificial system:

[1] TABLE FELLOWSHIP – God’s Altar was the place where sacrifices were burnt in His Temple. It was considered to be the Lord’s Table. The hospitality of the Lord is basically the hospitality of your homes. When someone is coming over, they ask their host: “What can I bring to join you at your table?” Then the host will specify what’s appropriate to bring. The Altar is the place where God said, I will meet with a man and we will do business together. Even the business world makes agreements over a good meal. God has set standards, protocols, and manners that will be done at His Table. It’s that simple. If you want to come near to God and approach His Table, simply ask because it’s open to whomsoever will. LOVE will whole-heartedly welcome you, and He will specify something you can bring to the table to join Him (Luke 22:29-30; 24:30; 1 Cor. 10:21).

[2] RESTORATION OF FELLOWSHIP – God’s Altar is for the restoration of fellowship, because sin separates us from God. These are instructions on how to turn your direction in order to come more near to the Lord. It is here that the Messiah instructs us: “If you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift” (Matt. 5:23-24 NKJV).

[3] WORSHIP OF GOD – The adoration of God Almighty is illustrated by every sacrifice, which had to be lifted up so they could be elevated unto the Altar. When we come to the Lord, we lift up our hands when we bring any gift or sacrifice to the Lord. These gifts and sacrifices don’t earn God’s love. They are simply reflections of your loving, respectful, obedient heart. What do people do at sporting events when a great play is made? They cheer. Raise their voice and their hands. They show exuberance, excitement and respect (John 4:23-24; 1 Tim. 2:8).

[4] REDEMPTIVE WORK OF THE MESSIAH – The whole principle of sacrifice teaches the substitution and ultimate work of the Messiah on the cross. Because of God’s Altar, we know that something of value can take the place of another and be found acceptable as a just conclusion. The entire concept of “giving” is first based on God’s sacrificial system in Scripture. Your sacrifice must come from your domestic herd. It has to cost you. It has to come from you. Remember, I mentioned that a sacrifice is really representative of you offering yourself? The first lesson on “giving” in the Word of God embodies the Father gave His only begotten Son (John 3:16).

[5] ESTABLISHMENT OF FEASTS – All the feasts prescribed by the Lord Himself were based on certain gifts brought to God’s Altar. If you believe in celebrating the Lord the way He originally prescribed, they started off from the instructions given to the priests. BTW – You may want to consider that Scripture says His “Word stand forever” (Isa. 40:8), and God Himself says, “these are My feasts” (Lev. 23:2). In 2 Chronicles 8:13, the primitive root for the yearly feasts that are His set appointments is the Hebrew word “ya-ad.” This primitive root implies that during God’s set appointments with His people, the Lord is summoning His people to meet Him at His Table at His stated time. It also tells us during His Biblical feasts that LOVE is directing us into a certain position, so He will be able to engage us for marriage (i.e., be betroth).

Kingdom New Wine – GENU-WINE (PART 1)

Wine White Sunset

The Lord’s GENU-WINE is the new wine in these last days.

“This is My blood of covenant, which is poured out for many… I tell the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the Kingdom of God” (Mark 14:24-25 NIV).

In this Kingdom Day, a sign of His coming is first the water then the wine, like when the spear pierced Yeshua’s side on the cross. In brokenness, His living water is being poured out through His Bride from His side.

His water is being turned into wine in this third day (John 2:1). We must each be washed, cleansed, and filled to the brim with the living water, just as the ceremonial water jars were at the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee. As His servants, we are to do whatever the Lord tells us (John 2:5), then He will draw us out so we can be taken to the Master of the Wedding Banquet and His people. The Master is calling the Bridegroom aside, for He has indeed saved the best for last. “Thus He revealed His glory, and His disciples put their faith in Him” (John 2:11).

“This is the new covenant in My blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:25). Remember Him. Re-member Him. Re-member His Body. Let’s put His Body back together again.
