Things to do before the next time
Use read the book of Ruth, find out the role of a kinsman and Goel and what is the Levithecal Marriage pertain and how it fortell the preparation for the Marriage feast of the Lamb.
Meditate on this verses Ruths,
Write the account of the Marriage feast pointing to where it start in the book of Revelation, point to what happen in Jericho.
The Marriage feast of the Lamb, who is the Lamb, who is the Bride and what marriage? The Marriage where does the ideal began? From the garden when the first man saw the first woman “Eve” in Gen. 2:23-25; “23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.“ This is where the ideal that make man the Image of God being able to Love as his own soul, this mistery of two becoming one is the same mistery of three person or degnity becoming one, this is the ability to share equally weakness,power, intellect and strength, this was the mistery that make Christ all powerful while on earth because he share in all glory of the father, which make him equal with God but being equal he humble himself even to the extent of death on a wooden cross.
The Fall is the reason for Marriage
When Eve ate the the fruit in Gen. 3; Adam was not tempted rather than let the woman suffer the consequences of his sin alone he choose suffer with the wife by honouring that oneness, this lead to man total seperation from God like the man has chosing to obey Devil rather than leave man to his faith like the devil, he iniziated a plan from the creation for the salvation of man, but man not knowing how to right his wrong because he saw he was naked before the enemy, he made religion his covering to given himself a sense of covering but God saw that despite his religious act he was still naked, God delibrately kill a Lamb that have not sin to cover the sin of man showing them by the sharing of innocent blood their sin can be cover, this innocent blood was forshadowring man bride price that is to be a ransom to buy them back to God but the question is who receive the payment for man sin, many may think is the Devil but man did not sin against the Devil but against God who said without the shading of Blood there is no remission for sin, so now that we understand the reason, is important to know that the betrothal has taking place man where chosing and seperated from every other creature and Christ also separated the church to himself by givinf them the condition of marriage as a law, now the bride price has been fully paid which without man would have follow the Devil to a lost eternity and there has been constant remembrance of the marriage covenant so that the saint do not defile themselves before the marriage covenant.
Who is the Lamb bride
The bride is the saint, those he has bought from the slave market of Sin, where they have chosing to obey Devil rather than God, God has also decided to hand them to a lost eternity where those who obey Devil have their home eternally, but God who care so much about our ignorance has pre-decided to make those who remain not still in error or ignorance to escape the consequences of sin since man has a sin problem, . To save man God has to married man back to himself because this is the only way man can truly be one with God as man was before the curse, just as when couple married they are seperated from their background or surrounding to be come one with his wife or husband even so are we going to seperate ourself from the world his flesh to meet with the Lord as his bride. Rev. 19: 8, “ And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright `and’ pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.“ So the Lord bride is the church that why he send message of correction in Revelation 3; this bride are the people who the full mistery of God is revealed in them this are the elder no wonder Jesus said in the book of Matthew 11:11; “ Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptist: yet he that is but little in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.“ Because John was the last of the prophet and no man born of a woman is as great as he but the least Saint is greater than him.
Who are the guest
The angel and host of saint from the old testament and the tribulation saint, all this make up the guest, the honourable guest are the saint of God, from the new testament church which without the old testament saint cannot be make perfect. This word ecclessia called Church was hidding from the wise and knowledgeable men of old but reveal to Babies and this Babies in them is the mistery of God complete but how did we know that this elders are christian, is by their song of redemption ” thou was slain and has redeem us to God by thy blood and has make us king and priest unto our God and we shall reign on earth” I don’t think the prophet or the nation Israel would sing that but this is a clear song of the redeem which can be confirmed in the new testament. Your teacher will expand this with scriptural prove to you.
