The Supper of the Great God!

In Revelation 19:17 John saw an angel standing in the sun (i.e. in the east), and that angel called to all the fowls of the air to come to the supper of the great God! What I find interesting is what God had prepared for them to eat. It was not a meal that normal people would be expected to enjoy. Rather it was a meal that one would expect carnivorous or predatory beasts to gather to eat. It was: “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” (Revelation 19:18). The question is: is this the Marriage Supper of the Lamb? The Greek word used for supper is deipnon (G1173), and it is the same word used in Revelation 19:9. Read the rest of this entry »

I have heard a lot of things about the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and all of the commentaries, which I possess, put the event in the future. Some even believe Revelation 19:7 refers to a physical event. Hymns have been authored and sung about sitting down with Abraham, Moses and David, even Peter and Paul etc. Whoever might be one’s favorite Biblical character, it is almost certain that one would sit down at the table next to that particular hero of the Bible. Can you imagine the length and breadth of the table that would have to be constructed? But, God can do anything, so whatever one is able to imagine can be done! Right? The problem arises when we realize that not every imagination of our hearts meets with the Lord’s approval (Isaiah 55:8). Read the rest of this entry »

Paul and the Marriage Supper

It seems that some of the Jews and many of the gentiles who heard Paul speak in the synagogue of Pisidian Antioch wished to speak of these things again the next Sabbath (Acts 13:42-43), and both Paul and Barnabas spoke with them at that time and encouraged them to remain in the grace of God. That is, to believe the Gospel is a lot like receiving an invitation to an event and being excited over attending that event. Paul and Barnabas told these believers to remain excited; don’t be persuaded by someone who makes light of its value that the event isn’t worth attending. Read the rest of this entry »
