His Bride Has Made Herself Ready [Revelation 19]
5And a voice came from the throne, saying, "Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great. 6Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, "Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
Marriage of the Lamb
7"Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready."
8It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. 9Then he said to me, "Write, 'Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb '" And he said to me, "These are true words of God." 10Then I fell at his feet to worship him But he said to me, "Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
We are in the midst of planning a wedding for our youngest daughter. What a sweet time of preparation. There is lots to do to get ready for the marriage and celebration. This passage in Revelation has new meaning for me today as I think about the marriage of the Lamb and how blessed we will be to be invited to the "marriage supper of the Lamb." It will be a time of rejoicing and giving glory to God. Our little celebration for our daughter will be a glimpse of what is to come.
I praise You Father for making me ready to be part of the bride. "Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns."
