Multitudes had assembled in great praise at the announcement that Christ reigned Omni potently. His wife had made herself ready (she had been clothed as she was washed in water where she was made acceptable by His blood) and the marriage supper of the Lamb had come. She was dressed in pure and white linen (the clothes of priest), which is the righteousness of the saints. A command was given unto John from the angel who directed him: “Write! Blessed are they which are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” John is assured that these are the true (revealed which had been hidden from the beginning of time) sayings (message) of God.
This had to follow the destruction of the great city, that is, the judgment of the great whore, which is Jerusalem, or they could not have sung the praise of the judgment God had judged against the great whore to avenge His servants of her wickedness.
The marriage and the marriage supper had to come the same day. They are all part of the same event. The day Christ married the Church, that same day the marriage supper was introduced, participated in, and celebrated. The partaking of the Lord’s Supper by the Church of Christ was partaken on the day of Pentecost. “And they continued in the apostles doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread, and in prayers.” Acts 2:42 Many use Acts 20:7 as the proof text for partaking of the Supper on the first day of the week. Acts 20:7 is the example showing the command was obeyed!! If Acts 20:7 is our command, we cannot partake—for everything had to begin at Jerusalem!! I use to hear great preachers preach about great events that happened on the day of Pentecost, AD 33. All they said was true, BUT, they left out the instituting of the Lord’s Supper that took place that day!! Our people have been taught Acts 20:7 and have not been taught Acts 2:42 and are embarrassed not to understand Revelation 19:9-10.
The omnipotent reign of Christ, the marriage of the Lamb, and the observance of Lord’s Supper came the same day!! In Revelation the 19th chapter, they were announced in the SAME VERSE!! They came after the spiritual judgment of the great whore and the destruction of the great city-Revelation 19:2. Listen to this verse; “Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God.” All this took place WHEN Jesus had by Himself “purged our sins and sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.” Hebrews 1:3 This same day Christ was “declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” Romans 1:4, Matthew 28:18-20. This same day the Church of Christ began on Earth as the Holy Spirit, described as a “rushing mighty wind,” infused the 12 apostles to tell man for the first time what had been told in parables (but now in reality) what they must do to be saved. This same day they that “gladly received the message of the Holy Spirit through the mouths of the apostles in response from a prayer to the Ancient of Days from THE WORD, were baptized IN WATER and the first souls that had been sinners could NOW be invited to break bread with the Godhead!! And this they did, when, after 3,000 men (they did not count women and those under 30 years of age) were attending the first official worship assembly of the new Bride of Christ (He had just divorced physical Israel 53 days earlier and not given her a writing of divorcement). On this same day His bride preached, prayed, partook, gave, and sang praises to their NEW King!!; for they were now members of the greatest institution to ever grace this planet!!
The New Jerusalem, spoken of in Revelation 21:9-10, said to be the Lamb’s wife, was now also on Earth AND in the third Heaven!! Sin would separate them NO MORE!!
