“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.” Revelation 19:7
A beautiful young lady sat in a hotel room hundreds of miles away from home. Methodically, she looked at the bridal grown hanging in the closet. Tomorrow is the big day! Her parents, staying in the room next to her, will arise at dawn, and together they will drive the remaining distance to the home of her future in-laws. As she ponders on the next day, questions race through her mind. “Am I ready for this day?” “Is my white dress spotless?” “When he sees me will he be thrilled?”
According to scripture, at the marriage supper of the Lamb, the bride made herself ready. That means she appeared before the eyes of her husband, the Lamb of God, as holy, spotless, without spot or wrinkle. His delight was in her and thus they was great gladness and rejoicing, and honour to God.
Let us ensure our personal garments are spotless!
( Our readiness depends upon our “rest” in His finished works of Yeshua. )
