"After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great
multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong
to our God; 2 because His judgments are true and righteous; for He has judged the great harlot who was corrupting the
earth with her immorality, and He has avenged the blood of His
bond-servants on her.” 3 And a
second time they said, “Hallelujah! Her smoke rises up forever and ever.” 4 And the
twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God
who sits on the throne saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” 5 And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Give
praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and
the great.” 6 Then I heard something like the
voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound
of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and be glad and
give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has
made herself ready.” 8 It was
given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the
fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
9 Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed
are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he said to
me, “These are true words of God.” [Verses 7-9
describe the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.] 10 Then
I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a
fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus;
worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
11 And I saw heaven opened, and
behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True,
and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 12 His
eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and
He has a name [Revelation
3:12] written on Him which no one knows except Himself.
13 He is clothed with a robe
dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which are in heaven,
clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white
horses. 15 From His mouth
comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He
will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce
wrath of God, the Almighty. 16 And
on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF
Captain of the Armies of Heaven leads them to earth...this is the Second Coming
of Christ here in Revelation 19!]
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a
loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, “Come, assemble for
the great supper of God, 18 so
that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh
of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the
flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.”
19 And I saw the beast and the
kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat
on the horse and against His army.
20 And the beast was seized, and
with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he
deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped
his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the
sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds
were filled with their flesh." [Verses 17-21 is
the Great Supper of God.]
Why? Could it be that if it is not in Revelation 19 then the most popular theory about the Rapture would be incorrect?
Otherwise we start putting our own stuff into it...particularly Revelation 19.
I thank the Lord that He gave us the Book of Revelation, so that we can better picture and understand the end times events and our future state with Him.
