THE BOOK OF REVELATION ART EXHIBITION
Revelaation 19:7 - 8
Let us rejoice and be glad! Let us give him the glory! For the time has come for the wedding of the Lamb, and his Bride has prepared herself with fine linen, bright and clean has been given her to wear” .
Events in heaven are proceeding in a beautiful way. Just prior to Jesus returning in chapter nineteen, the bride is ready for the wedding ceremony with the lamb, or Jesus. The bride has made herself ready and is wearing white linen, which is representing righteous acts (Revelation 19:8) The parallels with the Jewish wedding contract are striking and worth noting here:
1. In the Jewish wedding contract, first the groom’s father pays the price for the bride - The price is paid for the bride by Yeshua’s blood.
2. The groom sometime later goes to fetch his bride - Jesus will fetch the bride at the time of the rapture of the saints.
3. There is a wedding ceremony with an immersion bath proceeding - The bride is married wearing the cleansing white garments showing sanctification is complete.
4. There is a wedding banquet - The wedding feast will happen upon earth begining the millennial reign of christ.
