"What is the marriage supper of the Lamb?"

Answer: In his vision in Revelation 19:7-10, John saw and heard the heavenly multitudes praising God because the wedding feast of the Lamb—literally the "marriage supper"—was about to begin. The concept of the marriage supper is better understood in light of the wedding customs in the time of Christ. These wedding customs had three major parts. First, a marriage contract was signed by the parents of the bride and the bridegroom, and the parents of the bridegroom or the bridegroom himself would pay a dowry to the bride or her parents. This began what was called the betrothal period—what we would today call the engagement. This period was the one Joseph and Mary were in when she was found to be with child (Matthew 1:18; Luke 2:5). The second step in the process usually occurred a year later, when the bridegroom, accompanied by his male friends, went to the house of the bride at midnight, creating a torchlight parade through the streets. The bride would know in advance this was going to take place, and so she would be ready with her maidens, and they would all join the parade and end up at the bridegroom's home. This custom is the basis of the parable of the ten virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. The third phase was the marriage supper itself, which might go on for days, as illustrated by the wedding at Cana in John 2:1-2. What John’s vision in Revelation pictures is the wedding feast of the Lamb (Jesus Christ) and His bride (the Church) in its third phase. The implication is that the first two phases have already taken place. The first phase was completed on earth when each individual believer placed his or her faith in Christ as Savior. The dowry paid to the Bridegroom’s Parent (God the Father) would be the blood of Christ shed on the Bride’s behalf. The Church on earth today, then, is “betrothed” to Christ and, like the wise virgins in the parable, all believers should be watching and waiting for the appearance of the Bridegroom (the Second Coming). The second phase symbolizes the Rapture of the Church, when Christ comes to claim His bride and take her to the Father's house. The marriage supper then follows as the third and final step. Attending the wedding feast will be not only the Church as the bride of Christ, but others as well. The "others" include Old Testament saints who are going to be raised at the Second Coming, as well as the martyred dead of the Tribulation. As the angel told John to write, “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb” (Revelation 19:9). The marriage supper of the Lamb is a glorious celebration of all who are in Christ! Read more:  http://www.gotquestions.org/marriage-supper-Lamb.html#ixzz3PToT2Nm3

Jezus’ bruid bereidt zich voor op haar bruiloft

 

Het beeld van een bruid die zich voorbereidt voor haar bruidegom wordt in de Bijbel gebruikt als voorbeeld voor de relatie tussen Jezus en zijn gemeente. Tijdens een bijeenkomst in Oslo op 21 Maart 2010, legt Kåre J. Smith uit wat deze voorbereidingen inhouden voor een christen.

Laten wij blijde zijn en vreugde bedrijven en Hem de eer geven, want de bruiloft des Lams is gekomen en zijn vrouw heeft zich gereedgemaakt; en haar is gegeven zich met blinkend en smetteloos fijn linnen te kleden, want dit fijne linnen zijn de rechtvaardige daden der heiligen. (Op. 19:7-8)

Die trouwjurk moet je dus zelf aantrekken!

Smith leest daarna uit Efeziërs 2 vers 10. "Want zijn maaksel zijn wij, in Christus Jezus geschapen om goede werken te doen, die God tevoren bereid heeft, opdat wij daarin zouden wandelen.” “Verlossing is een geschenk”, zegt Smith, waarna hij verklaart dat God op dezelfde manier de mensen nog een geschenk geeft: de mogelijkheid om te worden gevormd. Maar je kiest zelf of je dat geschenk wil aanvaarden. Dit geschenk is de mogelijkheid om met de hulp van God de werken uit te voeren die God heeft voorbereid. Door deze daden te doen trekt de bruid haar bruidskleding aan. “Die moet je dus zelf aantrekken”, legt Smith uit.

Kåre J. Smith neemt de apostel Paulus als voorbeeld voor hoe iemand dat deed wat God voor hem had voorbereid. “Het is niet waarschijnlijk dat deze werken Paulus altijd even goed uitkwamen als hij keek naar zijn eigen behoeftes. Maar hij deed wat hij op zijn pad tegen kwam en hij kwam daardoor in veel lijden. Hij werd gegeseld, hij kwam in de gevangenis, hij leed honger, er waren vele moeilijke situaties. Maar hij was gelukkig en blij omdat hij dit kon doen voor Jezus!” Smith gaat verder met het voorbeeld van Demas, die op eenzelfde manier als Paulus ook een taak van God krijgt. “Want Demas heeft mij uit liefde voor de tegenwoordige wereld verlaten”, leest Kåre J. Smith uit 2 Tim. 4:10. Hij vertelt dat Demas daarom niet volledig uitvoerde wat God voor hem had klaar gelegd. “Hij verloor hiermee de verlossing die God voor hem uitgedacht had”, spreekt Smith met ernst.

Maar ik merk dat het tegen mijn eigen vlees in gaat. Dan moet ik mijn kruis opnemen en mijzelf vernederen.

“Er zijn veel verschillende taken en God heeft voor ons een ‘veelvuldige genade’.” Kare J. Smith verduidelijkt dit door uit te leggen dat als jij rechtvaardig bent in alles wat jij ontmoet in je dagelijkse leven, dan word je gevormd. “Maar ik merk dat het tegen mijn eigen vlees in gaat. Dan moet ik mijn kruis opnemen en mijzelf vernederen, als ik Jezus wil blijven volgen in de werken die Hij voor mij heeft voorbereid. Daardoor kan ik Jezus’ bruid worden”!

Smith sluit af met de wens: “Moge God zijn gemeente zegenen. Laten we leven door deze genade, zodat er door die genade van God iets kan veranderen in ons”.

Old Testament Types and Foreshadows
 
Isaiah 54:5 For thy Maker [is] thine husband; the LORD of hosts [is] his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. Proverbs 31:10-31 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price [is] far above rubies... Scriptures from Song of Solomon:
“This Book stands like the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and no man shall ever be able to pluck its fruit, and eat thereof, until first he has been brought by Christ past the sword of the cherubim, and led to rejoice in the love which hath delivered him from death. The Song of Solomon is only to be comprehended by the men whose standing is within the veil. The outer-court worshippers, and even those who only enter the court of the priests, think the Book a very strange one; but they who some very near to Christ can often see in this Song of Solomon the only expression which their love to their Lord desires.”  Charles Spurgeon

Song 2:13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines [with] the tender grape give a [good] smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. 14 O my dove, [that art] in the clefts of the rock, in the secret [places] of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet [is] thy voice, and thy countenance [is] comely. Song 4:1 Behold, thou [art] fair, my love; behold, thou [art] fair; thou [hast] doves' eyes within thy locks: thy hair [is] as a flock of goats, that appear from mount Gilead. Song 4:7 Thou [art] all fair, my love; [there is] no spot in thee. Song 4:9 Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, [my] spouse; thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck.
