There's going to be a Wedding!

"I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father's kingdom."

Matthew 26:29

The most sure sign of Jesus return, are His own words.

After He took the cup at Passover and gave it to His disciples saying that the cup is His blood of the New Covenant, the Covenant of forgiveness of sins, He then says that He will not drink of it again until they are in His Father's Kingdom.

- Jesus is speaking of the future union between the Bride (His church, believers everywhere) and Himself, we call it the "Marriage Supper of the Lamb".

Revelation 19:6
"Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: 'Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.' (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)"

We will sit down face to face with our Lord and eat and drink with Him at this time. It will not be something mystical or far out, it will be a literal time when we are before Jesus partaking of the fruit of the vine with Him.

May we have peace and joy knowing that His word is certain and will not pass away!

Lord Jesus, we thank You for Your word, You said You are going to prepare a place for us and if You go You would return to receive us. Lord Jesus, in spite of what our eyes see in this world we thank You that Your word is certain and we will trust You, in Jesus name, amen.
