Revelation 19:7-9 KJV
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: for the marriage of The Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.
8 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.
9 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.
Matthew 19:6 KJV
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Heaven and earth await, the trumpet blast,and the voice of the archangel, the moment when God will call the people of The Lord, home.
Scriptures, Speaking Of Marriage, Or the coming Marriage Supper:
Matthew 9:15 NLT
Jesus replied, “Do wedding guests mourn while celebrating with The Groom? Of course not. But someday The Groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.
Matthew 22:1-14 KJV (Luke 14:16
1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain King, which made a marriage for His Son,
3 And sent forth His servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, He sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared My dinner: My oxen and My fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the remnant took His servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when The King heard thereof, He was wroth: and He sent forth His armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
8 Then saith He to His servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when The King came in to see the guests, He saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12 And He saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said The King to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
Matthew 25:1-13 NLT Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids
1 Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet
2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise.
3 The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps,
4 but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil.
5 When The Bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6 “At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, The Bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet Him!’
7 “All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps.
8 Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’
9 “But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’
10 “But while they were gone to buy oil, The Bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with Him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked.
11 Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’
12 “But He called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’
13 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of My return.
Luke 12:35-59 KJV
35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their Lord, when He will return from the wedding; that when He cometh and knocketh, they may open unto Him immediately.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom The lord when He cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that He shall gird Himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if He shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for The Son Of Man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
41 Then Peter said unto Him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
42 And The Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his Lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a Truth I say unto you, that He will make him ruler over all that He hath.
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46 The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
47 And that servant, which knew his Lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to His will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
54 And He said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.
56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.
59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.
Luke 14:15-24 KJV (A Prophetic view of The Marriage Super Of The Lamb.)
15 And when one of them that sat at meat with Him heard these things, he said unto Him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
16 Then said He unto him, A certain Man made a great supper, and bade many:
17 And sent His servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto Him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
21 So that servant came, and shewed His Lord these things. Then The Master Of The House being angry said to His servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
23 And The Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that My house may be filled.
24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of My supper.
John 3:27-30 NLT John the Baptist Exalts Jesus
27 John replied, “No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven.
28 You yourselves know how plainly I told you, ‘I am not the Messiah. I am only here to prepare the way for him.’
29 It is The Bridegroom who marries the bride, and The Bridegroom’s friend (John and Old Testament believers) is simply glad to stand with him and hear His vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at His success.
30 He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.
Romans 7:4 KJV
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to Him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
II Corinthians 11:2 NLT
For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God Himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband—Christ.
Ephesians 5:23 NLT
23 “...Christ is The Head Of The Church. He is The Savior Of His body, The Church.
25“...Christ loved the church. He gave up His Life for her
26 to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s Word.
27 He did this to present her to Himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault.
30 And we are members of His body.
32 “...Christ and the church are one.
Revelation 22:17 KJV
And The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take The Water Of Life freely.
At any moment, the rapture trumpet may sound, and the voice of the archangel, heard. If you are a child of God, and your name is written in The Lamb's Book Of Life, you will be caught up to heaven, to forever be with The Lord. All of heaven is waiting for the celebration of the home coming of
The Lord's bride, the church.
There will be a celebration, besides anything ever seen by mortal man, a celebration known as
“The marriage supper.”
Friend, don't miss it! Do you know The Precious Lamb Of God? He came to earth to hand you a pardon for the judgment of sin. When you freely take His pardon, by receiving Him, your name is recorded in His Book Of Life!
When will the rapture be?
Matthew 24:36-51 KJV
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of The Son Of Man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of The Son Of Man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not The Son Of Man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over His household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom His Lord when He cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That He shall make him ruler over all His goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
