One of the greatest of all life events is a wedding. The groom and his best men stand together in the front of the church. A song is played as the bridesmaids walk down the aisle. Then the mother of the bride stands up and all the relatives and friends stand up. All eyes are on the bride as she comes down the aisle toward the groom. After the groom and bride exchange their vows they are pronounced husband and wife. After the recession the newly married couple celebrate their union with family and friends with a dinner.
The book of Revelation tells us about two future events that the Church will be a part of: the Marriage of the Lamb and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. As Christians we look forward to these exciting events. But when and where will these events happen in the future? Christians differ in their views on the time and place of these two events.
This afternoon I want to explain the relationship of the ancient Jewish wedding customs to the Rapture, the Marriage of the Lamb and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
