The Real Marriage Supper of the Lamb

Most of us have heard about the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Upon hearing that, we may imagine fine linen, guests in fine array in a grand dinner party. Perhaps there will be a long buffet aisle filled with delicious food for us to eat. That is what I used to think of before I learned more about the marriage supper of the Lamb.

 Note: This is not the marriage supper of the lamb.

Some are taught that after the "secret rapture" before the 7 year tribulation, the saints will be enjoying a grand marriage supper while the rest of the saints are below getting saved during tribulation. I've heard sermons saying that Moses and Elijah will even have to leave the marriage supper and go below to witness unto those left behind. What blasphemy. What a joke! That is nowhere in the Bible!

And why would God have a marriage supper without ALL of His bride? Why have it with half of his bride? That's not a complete wedding.

Come and read Revelation 19 with us,

"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh." Rev 19:7-9, 17-21

 This is a wonderful and a more clearer explanation of the marriage supper of the lamb. Unfortunately, it is not referring to an upscale dinner party with delicious food for us, but that the fowls shall feast on the flesh of the wicked! Jesus will return at His coming and destroy the wicked below who want to make war with Him. He will destroy them and the birds and the fowls will feast on their flesh.

And when all this occurs, He will also be a bridegroom receiving His complete bride at His coming. We shall be raised out of our sleep, we shall be transformed into a new spiritual body, and we shall be caught up in the air to be with Him and there we shall always be with Him. We are together as a bride, meeting our bridegroom in the air to be with Him forever. That makes more sense doesn't it?

After looking at the above passage at Revelation 19, now let us look at Matthew 24, verse 33-37,

"Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together." Luke 17:33-37

Whosoever is left behind at His coming at the last trump, and whoever is not those caught up in the air as His bride, shall be left behind for destruction. The fowls and the eagles shall gather together as the like manner that we see birds circle and feast upon dead bodies and carcasses.

We also see this in Isaiah 34. The chapter speaks of His great and awesome day that is coming, and it also says:

"Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it. For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. " (v1-3)

And there is more!

"And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh." Isaiah 66:24

"And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away. " Jeremiah 7:33

"Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none shall gather them." Jeremiah 9:22

We can find a hundred of these verses speaking and describing the same fate of the wicked throughout the Bible. If you want to search for more, we recommend downloading (button is on the right side of our webpage) and search for fowls, carcases, and so forth.

We hope this has helped you have a better understanding of the fate of the wicked and what the Marriage Supper of the Lamb really is.
