Revelation 19:6–10 (ESV)
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,
For the Lord our God
the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult
and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready;
8 it was granted her to clothe herself
fine linen, bright and pure”—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.
9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed
are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” 10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with
you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
I don’t know why, but I’m often asked if we will eat
in heaven. Is it that some of us love to eat? I don’t know, but I know some people live to eat and some people eat to live. Anybody who knows me knows that I love to cook. I find joy in preparing food for friend, family, and the
church. Cooking is a joy and to see them eating what I cook is a true joy. Sometimes dishes work out and sometimes they don’t. We see in the Bible people sitting down to eat with Jesus. From the Old Testament to the New Testament,
food is being served, banquets are being hosted... but we must always remember that there is more to live than eating. Jesus Christ is the highest priority... He is the Bread of Life. Well, to answer the question about eating in heaven, the answer
is given in today’s reading: “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” Ha Haaa! The marriage supper of the Lamb! I do hope that Blue Bell Ice Cream delivers to heaven. Last
night was Maundy Thursday and we had a Seder Meal. I cooked an Irish Lamb Stew and also the shank bone for Elijah... if he came to the Seder. I roasted it with a little olive oil and Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning with the hopes that if
he showed up and liked the roasted shank bone, that he would make certain that Tony Chachere’s products are in heaven.
In heaven, there will be a lot of praising, but yes, there will be feasts and
eating in heaven. I wonder if you have to do dishes? Sounds like a serious question, but there are a lot of great Christians out there that actually love to do dishes. I also wonder if anyone ever burns what they are cooking in heaven.
Probably happens a lot in Hell’s kitchen. Remember though, we go to heaven to be in and live in God’s presence. He will clothe us in white linen robes. We will sing praises to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit... but not to
angels. We worship God! I pray: O heavenly Father, I look forward to seeing you face to face and being in your presence. When times get tough, help me to cling to you Lord. When Satan tries to draw me away and create doubts,
help me to put blinders on and see only you. You are my Lord and Savior! You have saved me and washed me white as snow. You have forgiven me and restored me into your family. Amen!
