Revelation 19:6–8 (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.
The closest thing I can come to this is 25,000 Lutheran youth at the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans last month. To hear 25,000 youth singing and praising was about as heavenly sounding as I will probably experience… this side of
heaven. It was like being at an NFL game and your team just scored! Except the yelling was praises to God.
Again I pray: Holy
Spirit, move my heart and voice to join in this great hallelujah chorus, both here on earth and then forever in heaven. Amen.
