The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is an amazing event to think about...I'm sure our words are not sufficient to describe the beauty, excitement, and pageantry of this long awaited ceremony.
On this page I am limiting the discussion to the location and chronological timing of this intimate event in the End Times prophecies in the book of Revelation.
We saw that the Rapture is in Revelation 14:14-16.
So, we were gathered together by and to Christ in midheaven. He did come down on a cloud, but He did not come all the way to the earth yet (that will be at the Second Coming).
Chapters 15 and 16 tell what is happening on the earth while the church is in midheaven with Christ.
And chapters 17 and 18 are an interlude detailing the fall of Babylon as shown chronologically in chapter 14.
So we are with Jesus in midheaven (I Thessalonians 4:13-17) awaiting our return with Christ to the earth at the Second Coming...what are we doing with Him in this time?
We will be involved in the wedding feast between Christ and His bride!
So, when we are gathered together to Christ we are transformed and dressed in fine linen, bright and clean as we are taken to this magnificent event.
We are not told how long this event is, but that is not significant. The church might be outside of time while we are in midheaven with Christ. However, time on earth seems to be in tact (although it is winding down) as the way is prepared for the Second Coming.
After the church is gathered together to and by Christ (raptured), she is seated in midheaven for this marriage feast. And after this breathless feast we return with Christ to the earth at His Second Coming to set up His Millennial reign on earth!
