married-to-christ

 

 

And I heard a sound like the roar of a great multitude, like the rushing of many waters, and like a mighty rumbling of thunder, crying out:

“Hallelujah!
     For our Lord God, the Almighty, reigns.
Let us rejoice and celebrate
     and give Him the glory.
For the marriage of the Lamb has come,
     And His bride has made herself ready.
She was given clothing of fine linen,
     linen bright and pure.”

For the fine linen she wears is the righteous acts of the saints. ~ Revelation 19:6-8, Berean Study Bible

 

 

Righteous arranged marriage:
Predestined Bride and Groom
Prophesied in Message,
Saved from eternal tomb.

Negotiating match:
Father of Groom has Son
Bear expenses for “catch”;
Marriage costs for Bride – none.

The Son pays agreed price:
Mohar purchases Bride—
Redemption’s sacrifice,
Grand cost for purified.

Groom’s additional gifts:
Spirit, Authority
Power, private airlifts
For His holy Body.

Mattan’s heavenly best:
After Mohar is paid
Groom shifts from his request
To next response conveyed.

Bride imbibes poured out wine:
Shed blood that covers sin—
If faithless to Divine,
Quaint parade a no-win.

Banned bridal march harsh news:
Foul betrothal charade
Causes legal tie blues—
Consummation waylaid.

Only true Bride Father
Selected for Groom goes
In Rapture with honor—
Wearing white linen robes.

Wedding processional:
After that, seven days
Being affectional—
The consummation phase.

Leaving bridal chamber
For Groom’s Marriage Supper—
Faithful Overcomer
Celebrates with Savior.

Snapshot of Bride’s events:
Betrothed same as married—
Christ perfects agreement
With staunch and unwearied.

Live consecrated life:
Know Bridegroom’s returning–
Be pure and holy Wife;
Lamp kept trimmed and burning.

He’s coming to lift up
His Bride and take her Home
Where they’ll drink from the cup;
Finalize vows that Yom.

The Day of the Lord will
Come like thief in the night;
Stay prepared Bride until
It is time to take flight.
