Matthew 22.1-2 — “Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.'”Jesus is mentioned several times as our Bridegroom in the Bible. We have already discussed the verse found in Mark 2.19-20 NIV: “Jesus answered, ‘How can the guests of the bridegroom fast while he is with them? They cannot, so long as they have him with them. But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and on that day they will fast.'”
Where is our Bridegroom going? To prepare our wedding feast! What is a feast? A feast is a time of celebration. We are going to be surrounded by good friends, good food and fun times. Sounds awesome, right?
However, I believe that there are two wedding feasts that Christians can partake in. There is a wedding feast in heaven, but there is also dress-rehearsal wedding feast on earth. Our life on this earth prepares us for our life on the New Earth. God has a wedding feast planned for your life this very moment that reflects the one in heaven. The question is, “Are you feasting?”
Jesus says the following in the Lord’s Prayer:
“This, then, is how you should pray:
” ‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven” Matthew 6.9-10.
Please note the following promise: “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
God has a “kingdom come” or “wedding feast” in mind for this earth, which will emulate heaven’s. I believe that God has a great feast that He has prepared for this world. And this feast will come whether the Christians partake from it or not.
I don’t know about you, but I am determined to gain the blessings of God. God wants to bless us. He is the God of love, peace, joy & abundance. The universe was created by His hand. He wants to bestow good things onto His children. We just need to make it our sole purpose to know the wedding planner!
