The Marriage Supper

"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.' 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.' " (Revelation 19:9,10 - New American Standard)

The celebration of the Marriage Supper will occur after the Battle of Armageddon when the New Jerusalem descends from heaven. To this feast will be invited all the saved who are in glorified bodies whose home will be the New Jerusalem and all the saved in fleshly bodies who enter into the Millennial Reign of Christ.

In New Testament times, marriage suppers were the most joyous and festive events which the average person ever attended. This Marriage Supper of the Lamb will be the most joyous and festive event of all time.

At this point, John is so overwhelmed with emotion that he falls down before the angel who is showing him these things and begins to worship him. The angel immediately stops him. The angels of God do not desire our worship.

This great and mighty angel is but a fellow servant of God with us. He is our brother in the service of the Lord. We worship God. He worships God.

We should not give worship to any created being. No angel, no saint, no creature is to be given the praise, glory, worship and adoration that belongs to God. With the conclusion of heaven's Hallelujah chorus, the army of heaven is ready to march. The Battle of Armageddon is about to begin.
