The Wedding Feast!

Wedding Feast

from Google Images

One of the great themes of the Bible is the wedding feast, which John begins to describe in the nineteenth chapter of the Apocalypse. Jesus, himself, uses the theme of a wedding in several of his parables. According to the perspective of the New Covenant (Matthew 25:1-13) the women await the coming of the Bridegroom (verse-10), which, of course, pointed to Jesus’ coming at the end of the age (Matthew 25:13; cp. 24:3). Here in Revelation 19:7 the great multitude who had been praising God, declared that the time of the wedding had come. That is, Jesus was at that time returning to take his Bride to himself.

More About the Great Harlot

Marriage Covenant

In a previous study I identified the great harlot, Mystery Babylon the Great, of Revelation 17 as the ancient city of Jerusalem, which contradicts just about all of present day eschatology. Some want to make the great harlot Rome, the Vatican, literal Babylon in modern Iraq or some such city that fits their idea of what the “end times” should look like. Nevertheless, the Bible never speaks about the end of time. Imagine that! The **Bible** never once mentions the end of time. In fact, the Scriptures claim the Kingdom of God, which was set up by Jesus during the days of the Roman Empire, would continue forever (Daniel 2:44). How can this be, if one’s eschatology demands the destruction of the universe? Read the rest of this entry »

Unity of the Olivet Discourse

Olivet Discourse Unity

from Google Images

In recent studies based upon The Parable of the Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14) I have demonstrated that the wedding motif, which Jesus used, and which the writers of the New Testament used, comes out of the Old Testament. The ten northern tribes or the House of Israel had been married to God by virtue of the Sinai Covenant (Jeremiah 31:32), but she was given a bill of divorcement (Jeremiah 3:6-8). Yet, although the House of Judah witnessed what the Lord had done to Israel, she refused to repent and continued in her adulterous ways, even to the point that the House of Israel was more righteous than she (Jeremiah 3:8-11).

Why Postpone the Wedding?

Would you postpone your wedding, because the guests you invited refused to come? Why would anyone do that? Yet this is what futurists ask us to believe in order for them to maintain their doctrine of a future coming of Jesus and a future wedding banquet. The parables of Jesus are paradigmatic, that is, they provide the frame into which the eschatological painting found in the rest of the New Testament must fit. In other words, if our eschatology isn’t based upon what we find in Jesus’ parables, our eschatology is wrong, or unscriptural. Moreover, the parables, themselves, are based upon what was prophesied in the Old Testament. Therefore, the wedding that Jesus mentioned in The Parable of the Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14) has its source in the Old Testament: Read the rest of this entry »
