Imagine seeing Jesus in heaven and you being among the millions of Saints that are with Him. You have endured in the faith and now the marriage ceremony of the Lamb is at hand. This is when His wife is made ready. She being the church or God’s people. When this ceremony begins, twenty elders and four beasts will praise God for all the marvelous things Jesus has done. They will also praise Him and remind us to do the same. At this moment I can see our heads fixed on Christ and worshipping Him in song. We may not be able to sing well in this life, but after this life is over, music will flow sweetly singing to our Lord God and King. Alleluia, for the Lord God reigns supreme and His ways are just. John speaks of this moment in the following verses… “and the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. 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 reigneth.” (Revelation 19:4-6) Amen.
What I just mentioned sets the stage for the marriage ceremony, which would happen next. It is so beautiful in every way. Even so much as to give me goosebumps each time I read the verses. It is written, “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) My friends and brothers and sisters in the faith, I pray that you will all be with me when this marvelous day happens. I love the Lord and will do anything to keep my lamp lit for Him. This way I will be able to be with Jesus when this day comes. However, anybody who lives their lives without the Lord, they will not be ready, and not be able to enter. Therefore, it is so important to confess our sins and get right with God while we still have breath. He is looking for people who really love Him. This is through the way they live each day for the Lord. Not for a time, but all their days. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that You will make a spot for me during the marriage ceremony of the Lamb. I have lived this life for You, and pray that I will be there among all the other saints of God. You know that I have had my share of mistakes on this earth. I have done things I wish I hadn’t, and only You could settle the debt. I was lost in my sins and transgressions against You, but because You died for me, I have been made clean. Lord, I know that You have died to pay the price for all our sins, no matter how heavy they are now. Thank You, God, for Your forgiveness and mercy. It is my prayer that You will keep me from harms way. Lead me from temptation. Help me to live a life that is worthy of my calling. Whatever You would do in my life, I know I cannot accomplish it if I am living in willful sin. This is only quenching the Holy Spirit, which I pray I will never do again purposely. Therefore, look at my heart, even now, and rip out of my soul anything that is contrary to Your will. I am speaking of any false beliefs that are still there, along with any sinful actions. Cleanse me and move within my life. Lead me to Your truth. I love You, God. You deserve all the praise and glory. I sing to You, my King and my God. Amen.
