The King is coming! His victorious love will set us free.


We are assured by observing Advent, that when Jesus comes again, we will sit down with him at the wedding supper of the Lamb. It means that we will be in heaven, living in the beautiful mansion Jesus prepared for us.

We will enjoy a full, abundant life, without sin, death or sickness and forever enjoy the glory of the Lord Jesus to the full.
Living with Christ in the new heaven and earth, is like celebrating a continuous glorious and perfect wedding feast as the guests of Jesus, being completely fulfilled by our eternal purpose and being baptised into the eternal light and love of God.

In Revelation 19 John not only mentions the love gifts given to the bride, but also something the bride has to do to show her love for the Groom.  She "made herself ready." The bride of Christ, his Church, does something to make herself look beautiful for Jesus, the Groom.

She puts on fine linen, bright and clean, which represents pure, grateful works of righteousness inspired by love. She prepares herself for the wedding day that will happen at an unexpected time.
A wedding is going to take place: Christ is the Bridegroom, and the Church is the bride.
Where are we in the marriage process? The bride has already been chosen – from eternity in fact (Eph 1:4,11). The betrothal has already taken place, because long ago already God has said, "I will be your God and you will be my people" (Ex 6:7; Jer 7:23, 11:4, 30:22; Ezek 36:28).
Now we are in the time of waiting, when the groom prepares a place, because the bridal price has been paid and the bride is getting herself ready to receive the Groom.
During this season we anticipate all of this. During Advent we anticipate sitting down with Jesus at the wedding supper of the Lamb.
Therefore, take note of this beatitude in (Rev 19:9):
Then the angel said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper
of the Lamb!'" And he added, "These are the true words of God."
What a blessing it is to know the Lord, to celebrate his birth and serve him with godly love – by serving his people and our neighbour with great joyful love.
And what an even more glorious blessing it will be to be seated with the Lord at his heavenly banquet table where we will celebrate forever the wedding supper of the Lamb.
We look forward to the Christmas feast, now so soon to come.
We even more so wait upon the Wedding Feast with great anticipation.
The celebration of the love of Jesus Christ for us, his own, will be more glorious, joyous and passionate than any earthly celebration we ever experienced. It will be more wonderful and glorious than any Christmas feast ever celebrated.
And it will last for all eternity!
