BIBLE PASSAGE: Revelation 19:1-9 (KJV) (RCCG Sunday School Student Manual 31 July 2022)
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 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.
6 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.
7 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.
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.
LESSON INTRODUCTION: Marriage, in this context, symbolises the union between Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:22-32). It is, however, important to note that the Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the next event after the first phase of the second coming of Christ (the rapture).
- DESCRIPTION OF THE MARRIAGE
- IMPORTANCE AND QUALIFICATION
1. DESCRIPTION OF THE MARRIAGE
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the consummation of the union between Christ (The Bridegroom) and the Church (the Bride-without spot or wrinkles)-Eph.5:27; Rev.19:1-9; Matt.22:1-14. The marriage will take place before the second phase of the second coming of Christ to the earth. Christ is the Bridegroom. The bride is the redeemed or saints of all ages who will have part in the first resurrection and who will live in the New Jerusalem forever (Rev.21:2). It is believed that the marriage supper will take place in Heaven (Rev.19:9).
2. IMPORTANCE AND QUALIFICATION
The marriage supper of the Lamb is meant to assemble the saints of all ages and present them to God, the Father (Matt.25:32-35), who will wipe away tears from their faces (Rev.7:17). It is also to take away the saints from the earth before the activities of the anti-Christ and the period of the tribulation (Isa.57:1). It will also be the period to reward faithful and diligent saints.
Those who will qualify for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb are the faithful saints of God, whose garments of righteousness have not been stained (Rev.21:27; Heb.12:14).
CONCLUSION: The Marriage Supper of the Lamb, like all biblical prophecies, will be fulfilled. You cannot afford to miss it. Pray to God to keep you standing in Him and count you worthy of this great and unique event.
