The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Event

Most have heard or read about this event called the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. But ... They do not know what the Marriage Supper of the Lamb truly is. It is a very important event and it may very well affect you.

I would like to look at a few Parables that Jesus shared and find out how they relate to our Christian walk today and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Here are several of the questions we will want the answers to as we research the Scripture for answers:

  • What is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
  • When is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
  • Why is there a Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
  • Where is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb to take place?
  • How does one become invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
  • Who is the Bride of this Marriage Supper of the Lamb?

Let us proceed, shall we?

Matthew 22:1-7

1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2 The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for His Son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

A parable is a story which uses various symbols. To discern a parable, one must discern the symbols. So the symbol of the King represents God. The servants are the prophets of the past in the Bible. The Marriage of the Son is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Jesus is the Son. God sent prophets to invite the people to come to this wedding but they chose not to because they were too busy. They even killed the prophets as the Bible also reveals. The city burned up was Jerusalem in 587 BC. Jesus has just revealed that God had the King of Babylon destroy the city for what they did to His servants, the prophets over the years.

Let's see what else Jesus said ...

Matthew 22:8-14

8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

The Supper of the Lamb Bible Hope
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is Coming

The Jewish people were found unworthy (though they too now have an opportunity to receive the Grace that comes only by believing in Jesus). The people that are now invited are the Gentiles (nations other than Israel) and it is clear that the bad represents sinners now having opportunity at Grace by the Blood of Jesus.

The wedding garment ... Represents being prepared. The next parable will explain this a little better. It is in Matthew, Chapter 25.

Matthew 25:1-12

1 Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Note that like in the other parable of Jesus it speaks of a wedding. (Bridegroom) This is another parable speaking of being prepared for this Spiritual wedding. As Jesus said right after this Parable in Verse 13 ... Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Jesus then began to share another parable ...

Matthew 25:14-15

14 For the Kingdom of Heaven is as a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

Jesus is the traveling man. The journey He took is this time He has been gone from when He rose to Heaven until His Return. The talents (money) represent gifts we have received from the Holy Ghost to reach and teach others as to glorify God. The Parable continues ...

Matthew 25:16-18

16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his Lord's money.

So these three individuals in Jesus' parable went and invested the talents they were given and brought in more. But more what?

Matthew 25:19-23

19 After a long time the Lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His Lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.

So, we see the ones who invested their talents were rewarded because they brought in more fruit by their efforts. But what became of the one who chose to go hide what he received?

Let's go see ...

Matthew 25:24-30

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His Lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Ouch ... The person who received the talents and did nothing with them but bury them was deemed an unprofitable servant.

So, what is Jesus telling us in this parable? He is talking about reaching for lost souls. Sharing the Spirit of Truth by spreading the Word of God.

By having Love and compassion for others ...

Hebrews 13:1-3

1 Let brotherly love continue.
2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained Angels unawares.
3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

Jesus continues ...

Matthew 25:31-34

31 When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy Angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory:
32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And He shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Blessing

Many call this the great sheep and goat judgment. Jesus will separate those who were profitable servants from unprofitable servants ... Listen to what Jesus shares about what a profitable servant is like.

Matthew 25:35-40

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

So, we see that Jesus is referring to showing brotherly love. To Love one another and to treat those you encounter as if it was Jesus because what you do to them ... You do to Him. But, what of the unprofitable servant?

Matthew 25:41-46

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his Angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Again ... Jesus is not fond of those who do not "pay it forward" ... That means those who receive Love, forgiveness and Grace but do not provide the same for others. He does not believe that we should receive gifts and do nothing with them. He does not believe we should believe ourselves to be saved and see a sinner or a lost or troubled soul and say ewwwwwwwwww.

He believes we should reach for them as He did us. If today was the last day for you ... Are you going to be considered a profitable servant? We must never allow ourselves to become complacent or doubt His return or suggest that we are not to know when He returns so what does it matter. I mean ... Anyone could die tomorrow in a variety of ways and my friends ... That is the last day for that soul. There will be no second chance then. So we should live each day as if it is our last. Let's look at some other things Jesus shared about this.

Matthew 24:36-39

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the Angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

The Supper of the Lamb Bible Concern
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Warning

What does Jesus mean by His return being compared to the Great flood of Noah's time? He means that people will be complacent and satisfied. Having no problem following the trends of man's world. Everything will appear normal.

Unprepared for what is coming:

Matthew 24:40-51

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

While Jesus was sharing these Parables ... Some of the Religious leaders at the time tried to question Jesus to try and "entangle Him in His talk" ... At one point, the Sadducees which do not believe in the resurrection ... Asked him a question.

Matthew 22:24-28

24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
27 And last of all the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

See in Jewish customs, if a man was married and he died, his brother had to marry the wife of the dead brother. So they wanted to see what Jesus would say in this hypothetical scenario created because they did not believe in the Resurrection of souls. Here is what Jesus responded ...

Matthew 22:29-32

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the Angels of God in Heaven.
31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

Jesus said that these Religious leaders did not comprehend the Scriptures correctly (Who would of thought that could happen, huh?) Jesus said when one soul, of a married couple dies. The marriage ends. Let that be the reason these words are spoken ... Till death do us part.

After the Marriage Supper of the Lamb we are eternally His. So, all of those stories which depict one showing up in Heaven and being reunited with their husband or wife and the marriage continues, Jesus made it very clear, in Heaven, there are no marriages.

We become as Angels and serve the Lord. We become the Spiritual Bride of Christ.

The Supper of the Lamb Bible Summary
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Conclusion

So, we see that we are to be preparing ourselves for this Spiritual wedding. We are engaged to Jesus and preparing to become His bride. We are told by Jesus that those who are profitable servants while on Earth, are going to become as the Angels of God. We will receive white linen to wear and become as Saints.

Revelation 19:7-9

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.
