Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:6-10 is about the marriage supper of the Lamb.
It refers to the second coming of Jesus in the glory of the King of all kings or the Heavenly Bridegroom for bringing us to enter the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Revelation 19:6-7
19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."


The great multitude refers to the Church who has been perfect or the heavenly bride that consists of the following parts:
All of them become one perfect body of Christ or the heavenly bride.

The preparation of the Church for welcoming Jesus' second coming on the glorious clouds is shouting for joy saying "Alleluia". In heaven, there are three times of the worship saying "Alleluia". On the glorious clouds, there is worship with saying "Alleluia". Thus, the worship on earth must be the reflection of the worship in heaven. It must be the same as the worship in heaven.

The requirements of worshiping with saying "Alleluia" are as follows:
  1. We must live in righteousness.
    Psalm 111:1
    111:1 Praise the LORD! I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, In the assembly of the upright and in the congregation.

    Romans 3:9-10
    3:9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.
    3:10 As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one;


    Romans 3:23-25
    3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
    3:24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
    3:25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,


    As a matter of fact, all men have sinned. None is righteous.

    The solution is that man must be justified by the reconciliation by the blood of Jesus through confessing and forgiving one another. As a result, the blood of Jesus forgives the sin until there is no remnant of it anymore as if we had never done such sin. We are not accused. We do not accuse others and we are not condemned. We can live in righteousness.

    Isaiah 32:17
    32:17 The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.

    Our heart is peaceful and we can worship God with saying "Alleluia".

    Keeping sin, the heart will not be peaceful and only the false words, lies, gossips, and slanders will come out of the mouth, not "Alleluia."

  2. We must hold fast and obey the true teaching Word.
    Psalm 105:45
    105:45 That they might observe His statutes And keep His laws. Praise the LORD!

    [verse 1-44] God performs the miraculous deeds for us to make us hold fast and obey the true teaching Word as well as get strong and of good courage, so we can worship Him with saying "Alleluia".

    Be careful! Do not be like Peter, the great or senior servant of God, who was doubtful to the true teaching Word and could not worship "Alleluia", but denied the Lord.

    Matthew 14:28-33
    14:28 And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
    14:29 So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
    14:30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
    14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
    14:32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
    14:33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "Truly You are the Son of God."


    When Peter experienced the miracle and could walk on the water, he was doubtful because of the blowing of the wind, namely gossips and false teachings. The sound was out of tune until he began to sink until denying the Lord to perish forever. If we have the voice "Alleluia", we are being lifted up to the glorious clouds.

    1 Peter 1:22
    1:22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,

    If we are strong and of good courage to hold fast the true teaching Word, we will be able to live in holiness and love one another until we can love our enemy or repay good for evil.

    Ephesians 4:11-12
    4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
    4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,


    As a result, we are equipped with the ministry and gifts of Holy Spirit for being used in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain or the edification of the perfect Christ's body. Although there are many threats and obstacles, the hands of God will finish them for us. All things become beautiful in time of need.

    We can worship God as the King of all kings or the Heavenly Bridegroom with saying "Alleluia".

  3. We must follow the Lamb wherever He goes.
    Revelation 14:1-5
    14:1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads.
    14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.
    14:3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.
    14:4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are
    the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
    14:5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.


    Revelation 19:6
    19:6And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!

    It is the same as the way of the cross, the death and resurrection experience with Jesus, the sprinkling of blood, the test, or suffering in the flesh or feelings because of Jesus.

    1 Peter 4:12-14
    4:12Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
    4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
    4:14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.


    Why do we have to experience the sprinkling of blood? It is to make us receive the Spirit of Glory or shekinah glory. The results are as follows:

    • We feel joyful in the midst of sufferings because of Jesus.
    • We get the glory or life renewal from the fleshly man to the spiritual one like Jesus is. It begins from the hard heart that is changed to be the sincere one like the dove or baby. There is no lie in mouth, but honesty. We say "yes" if yes and "no" if no. We say "true" if true and "false" if false. We become the house of prayer like a baby who cries to God and only worships saying "alleluia."

    Isaiah 46:3-4
    46:3 "Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, And all the remnant of the house of Israel, Who have been upheldby Me from birth, Who have been carriedfrom the womb:
    46:4 Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will
    carryyou! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliveryou.

    The results are as follows:

    • God upholds us, so we do not fall in sins, but live in righteousness and holiness. Although we may fall, but we can be lifted up and restored by God. We do not stumble in the calling and election, but keep faithful and fervent in spirit in the service and ministry to God until the end line.

    • God carries us. He takes the responsibility for our life and death. He is able to protect and preserve us in the midst of the increasing difficulties in the world until the time when the Antichrist reigns over the world for three and a half years. He gives us health and recovery according to His will. He gives us the beautiful and successful future life in His time.

    • God carries us or bears all of our weariness, heavy burdens, and labors, so we are peaceful. All things become easy and light. He is able to finish all impossible things for us.

    • God delivers us until we are perfect. He sanctifies and changes us until we are perfect. We do not stumble in words.
      James 3:2
      3:2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

      We are lifted up to the glorious clouds. We only shout for joy saying "Alleluia" for welcoming Jesus' second coming.
God blesses you.
