The Wedding Day is coming!

I remember my wedding day. It was special. Very special. My darling groom was immaculately
dressed, he had travelled thousands of miles to be married to me. I too was beautifully dressed. I was gorgeous! I had been attended to by the hairstylist, manicurist, make-up artiste,..etc. My white gown was spotless and fitted perfectly. I was ready.

As I walked down the aisle to stand close to my groom , I could see all our family and friends straining to have a glance at this beautiful bride. My husband was no different. I saw him smiling as he beheld the object of his affection. The woman of his dreams finally becoming his wife forever. So he waited patiently, he knew it was going to happen soon.

In the same way dear people of God we have a Groom who is waiting patiently for his Bride, the Church. The Heavenly hosts and angels will be the guests at the Wedding of the Lamb with His Bride. Are we ready? Are our robes spotless? Are we busy about the work He gave us? Are we getting primed up for Him alone?

That day will come like a thief in the night,without notice. May we not be caught unawares. I pray we don’t stop getting ready because we feel the Master has tarried too long. May we like soldiers be ready at all times. Come Lord Jesus come!

Watchfulness - Luke 12:35-48
35“Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak. 39But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

41Peter asked, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?”

42The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? 43It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. 44Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.  

45But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk. 46The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.
47“The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

There is a day that all creation's waiting for,
A day of freedom and liberation for the earth.
And on that day the Lord will come to meet His bride,
And when we see Him in an instant we'll be changed

The trumpet sounds and the dead will then be raised
By His power never to perish again.
Once only flesh now clothed with immortality,
Death has now been swallowed up in victory

We will meet Him in the air and then we will be like Him
For we will see Him, as He is
Oh yeah!
Then all hurt and pain will cease and we'll be with Him forever
And in His glory we will live
Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

So lift your eyes to the things as yet unseen,
That will remain now for all eternity.
Though trouble's hard, it's only momentary
And it's achieving our future glory.

- Lou Fellingham's There is a Day
