You Have A Marriage Invitation in Heaven

Your Marriage Invitation Is Waiting

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

You may not know it but you have a marriage invitation waiting for you in heaven. “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.” Revelation 19:7-9 (KJV)

You may be asking yourself, “who is this bride and who is the groom?” Well the bride is the Church, those of us who have trusted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Our sins have been washed away by the blood of Jesus and have received His righteousness. We will have robes of clean white linen in heaven.

The groom is The Lamb of God. Yes, Jesus himself. One day, Jesus will be united with His bride and there will be a great marriage feast in heaven.

This marriage in heaven is patterned after ancient Jewish marriage customs. A man and a woman is approved to be married, usually by both families. Then both sides agree to the serious commitments of marriage. The groom then goes away to build a house for his bride. Often the groom builds an addition to his father’s house. When he is finished with the construction, the grooms father gives his son his blessings and gives him permission to go and bring his bride to the new living quarters.

About 2,000 years ago, Jesus told us that He was going to prepare a place for us and that He would come again and receive us unto Himself so that we will be with Him forever. “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.” John 14:1-3. What a glorious day that will be.

Do you want to participate? Do you want to receive your marriage invitation? If so, you must become part of the bride of Christ. You do this by receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior. To see the steps that are involved, see our post entitled “God’s Simple Plan of Salvation“.

    Hi:

    The Bride of Christ is NOT invited to her own wedding! The invited are those OUTSIDE of the Bride of Christ – those Old and New Testament saints OTHER THAN THE BODY OF CHRIST under the Gospel of Grace.

    You write above “Do you want to participate? Do you want to receive your marriage invitation?”
    Again, when you and your wife/husband got married, did you send yourself a wedding invitation? No.
    You sent them to guests.

    Hope you can assiilate what I wrote.

    Be blessed.

    I speak of this in my book found on Amazon.com “The Rapture According to the Apostle Paul…”

    Hi Dennis,

    I agree with you that at an ordinary wedding, invitations are sent to quests. However, this is no ordinary wedding. God is inviting everyone to become the bride of Christ. Since we are living in the age of the church, no one living in this age will be at the wedding unless they are indeed part of the bride of Jesus Christ. When people receive Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior, they become part of the church and part of the bride.
