The Soon Coming Marriage

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.7 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. 8 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.”  9 Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”  Revelation 19:6-9

One day, Jesus has promised to return for His Holy people which He has set a part for Himself, those who have given their lives to Him.   Jesus references His return as that of Himself as a groom coming to marry His expectant bride, His church.  They will be joined in marriage forever.  Marriage is promised and sealed by the symbol of the wedding ring.  I couldn’t help but think of the recent “Ring of Fire Eclipse” on May 9, 2013 as a heavenly picture of the marriage ring symbol… God showing us signs in the sun and the moon that the coming of the groom of Christ will be soon.

20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies [which is apparent in the news right now 2013], you will know that its desolation is near.”  25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars… 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”  Luke 21:20,25,27
