Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called
to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"And he said to me, "These
are the true sayings of God."
marriage supper of the Lamb is the spiritual marriage or the perfect
The Bible is started with the physical marriage which has
been destroyed by Satan. Nevertheless, we give thanks to God because
the Bible is ended with the spiritual marriage or the perfect one,
namely the marriage supper of the Lamb.
It refers to the meeting
of Jesus who comes a second time in the glory as the Head, the King
of all kings, or the Heavenly Bridegroom with the perfect Church as
His Bride on the glorious clouds. Afterwards, we enter the One
Thousand Years Kingdom of Peace or the Future Paradise as it is
written in Revelation 20. Then, we enter the New Jerusalem or the
Heavenly Kingdom forever as it is written in Revelation 21-22. This
is the plan and will of God in our life. We must be sure that the
plan and will of God will never fail.
is related to the second coming of Jesus. Celebrating Christmas every
year means that the second coming of Jesus becomes shorter one year.
are we invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb?
marriage supper of the Lamb is the entrance to the Paradise and New
Jerusalem. Not entering the marriage supper of the Lamb is the same
as being left when Jesus comes a second time or not entering the
Paradise and Heavenly Kingdom. It means destruction and perdition
with the world forever.
Lord exceedingly longs for the return of men He has created to the
Paradise up to the New Jerusalem.
what are we invited?
"And at midnight a cry was heard: 'Behold, the bridegroom is
coming; go out to meet him!'

Midnight refers to the darkest time in the top of difficulties,
evil, and unclean things. The only tiding we need is Bride Tidings to
awaken us until we can enter the marriage supper of the Lamb.

signs of receiving the salvation are as follows.
It means that we

with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Be

forgiven and not condemned.
We stop sinning and return to God. We die to sin; at least we
repent from lying and hatred.

Certainly not! How shall we who died
live any longer in it?
6:4 Therefore we were
with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised
from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should

you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Being righteous is the same as having the salvation and blessings of

we must continue to the Bride Tidings.

the one of Paradise.

atmosphere of the heavenly kingdom is without any sin. It is the
atmosphere in peace.
proof of receiving the invitation of God, namely the Good News and
Bride Tidings, is we live in the atmosphere of the heavenly kingdom.
It means we
live in peace and there is no sin.
The atmosphere of the heavenly kingdom has nothing to do with riches,
poverty, intelligence, or stupidity. One will not have the atmosphere
of the heavenly kingdom if he keeps his sin, although he is rich. On
the contrary, a poor man can have the atmosphere of the heavenly
kingdom if he does not have any sin.

they sinned, so they became naked and ashamed. It means they were in
shame, fear, distress, and there was no peace. They were driven out
to the world and lived in curses.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
the cursed world, they did not repent, but kept on sinning up to the
top, namely the sins concerning eating-drinking and marrying-being
given in marriage. They were naked, but did not feel ashamed. If it
continues, men will only be destroyed forever. It cannot be stopped,
except by the sword of the Word.
All great things in the
world such as intelligence, riches, position, and so on cannot save
the sinners. The great people such as apostle, prophet, teacher,
religious men, and so on cannot save the sinners. The only way comes
from God through Christmas.

The examples are as follows.
King David fell in
sin with Bathsheba. He could confess his sin and be reconciled after
Nathan the prophet had rebuked him. He was forgiven and anointed by
the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to
him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.>> Have

Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to
the Pharisee's house, and sat down to eat.

woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at
the table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of
proof of being forgiven is the peace and anointing of Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit is the Comforter. He wipes away all of tears,
weariness, and heavy burdens. All things become easy and light. We
can be faithful and fervent in spirit in serving and ministering to
God until the end line.
Holy Spirit is the Helper. He is able to
help us and perform the miracle. The rotten things that produce
stench can be fragrance. The destroyed things can be good. We are
used by God to spread the fragrance of Christ. If the spiritual
miracle happens, the physical one will happen.
So he answered and said to me: "This is the word of the LORD to
Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says
the LORD of hosts.

grace to it!"'"

Spirit is able to change the criminal into the servant of God. We
are changed to be as perfect as Jesus is to enter the Paradise when
He comes a second time.
The criminal was useless and not
precious. He had nothing or no one. Jesus still receives us whatever
condition we have tonight.
