What is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb – The Tribulation Soldier
PASTOR STEVEN BIRNIE
(Rev 19:7) “…Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him, for the Marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready…blessed are they which are called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me, these are true sayings of God…” – What is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
Seven years before His second coming, on the date of the rapture, both the living and the dead saints will be caught away from the present earth, to face the first of the three eternal judgements which will take place in the future. At this moment, every believer who has ever lived, will be removed from the population of the earth and stand before, the Judgement Seat of Christ or, the Bema. This will be the one and only judgement seat which a Christian will face, where they’ll be judged on works both good and bad. However, at this seat, there will be judgement but no punishment, as Jesus died and carried everyone’s sin with Him. Immediately after, Jesus will take the book from the Father’s Hand and open the first seal of judgement upon the earth, carrying on throughout the seven years of tribulation, with the other 20 judgements to follow. Meanwhile, in heaven, the saints will partake in a feast called the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, while the tribulation plays out.
It’s unclear from the scriptures what this feast will contain so in many ways, it’s not worth taking too much time considering this. However, given that food will not be required in the heavens and that the saints will return with Jesus on His Second Coming; it could only be the knowledge and full revelation they’ll need, to reign with Christ for the 1000 years. But, let’s not forget what this event represents, it will be a marriage feast between each believer and Christ, as a celebration of Jesus finally meeting the ones He loves face-to-face and for believers, to finally see their saviour, whom they’ve held most dear.
THE TRIBULATION SOLDIER – Although none of our characters will experience the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, it will be spoken about often through our characters in a place of regret, for their unbelief.
