A Royal Wedding Designed for Heaven
April 30, 2011
Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16). Now, if a king is to produce heirs for his inheritance, he must have a queen. So, the King of kings must marry to produce legitimate heirs. Hence, God established the marriage bed in the natural to show the covenant marriage bed of the spiritual between Himself and man.
Man must enter the covenant with his King and Lord in faith and obedience. Once the covenant is formed between them and sealed in heaven, the King provides all things for His bride, including her wedding clothes. Through the infilling of the Spirit, together they are able to produce the good fruit of the marriage bed, whose inheritance will be eternal life in the house of God.
Eve’s spiritual harlotry, with respect to obeying God, led to a loss of the inheritance, which was to go to her husband and first son of God, called Adam. They broke from the plan God had for man, which would make him a spiritual partner on earth of the Lord God, or better stated – His bride. This caused a huge problem for man and his inheritance in God, for the wages of sin are death.
The lifeblood God had placed in him through the breath of the Spirit was doomed to flow from him, returning him back to dust with the spirit of death conquering and possessing the human being so he was no longer in the spiritual image of the living God as created. He had taken on the spirit of Satan who had entered the serpent to lure God’s partner from Him.
There could no longer be a heaven on earth for the spirit of death had conquered man whom God had put in authority over the beast, requiring him to till the earth where the provision simply awaited his participatory work. Yet, the simple truth was that works (the tilling) could provide nothing without faith and obedience, for the Provider had been separated from the man of sin.
Satan is no provider of food, but rather causes famine. Wherever there is famine in the world, there you will find Satan’s witchcraft at work; the rebellion of man is known as the sin of witchcraft. It is Satan’s tool, which he uses against God. He wants to lure the world into his snare, with the children being the target, in order to mold them into his image, since he is not a creator, only an imitator. God is the one and only Creator. How effective Satan has been with the lure of Harry Potter and his world of witchcraft, which has bewitched our children, along with some of their incredibly stupid parents!
Fortunately, God is a merciful and loving God, so He has offered man the opportunity to be redeemed from his death sentence. God’s Son would enter a world in rebellion, take man’s sin, which leads to death, upon Himself and die in man’s place, so that man might live. God would require of man, for his part, to repent of his sin, change his ways and live in faith and obedience to Him.
God covenanted with Abraham to return to Himself, through Abraham, a family line called the house of Israel, taken from out of all the nations of the world. This would be a spiritual line, deemed to be virginal and pure by the washing of His Word, and desirous of nothing more than to be His virginal marriage partner. He called this partner and witness, the church, and bride of Christ, as the picture of the love of God for mankind. And so, God sent His Son to the world to find His bride. He is at the heart of the rainbow covenant with Noah– the light broken for you and me.
It would be necessary for Jesus to be born of a virgin so that there would be none of the corrupt seed of Adam in Him, which is able only to bring forth bad fruit unto death and not unto life. Instead, Jesus would be born of that same Spirit of life, which turned dust into a living being called Adam, created in the image of God.
This was a unique man like no other, for He was both a Son of Man, uncorrupted by the seed of man, and a Son of God, born of the Spirit of life. If He were to disregard the lures of Satan, which lead to rebellion, and if He were to obey and do as His Father commanded, then He would have victory over death, and the tomb would not be able to hold Him. He would be free to start a new line of mankind, one born again of the same Spirit from which He received life, so that man/woman, too, could receive the gift of eternal life.
Why then, would He go to the tomb when He was born to live eternally with the Father? He died in our place taking our sin of rebellion with Him so all who accepted His gift of life could become His bride of mankind. They would also become adopted sons and daughters, through marriage, within God’s house of Israel. They shall dwell in more than a Garden, and in more than a Promised Land, in what is called a kingdom here on earth over which God will rule in perfect relationship with His Son and His Son’s bride.
Creation was a seven-day process with days being equal to thousands of years, possibly even millions of years during which God created the heavens and the earth. But the moment man was created, we went into a system of days we know as being ruled by the sun, moon and stars so that we have months and years of time, within a time warp of 7000 years meant for reaching perfection in the marriage bed. This 7000-year period is meant to allow for the chastisement of man’s sin and his salvation; there is a price, which must be paid for it. The very government of Satan, which man chose over the government of God, will be the instrument of chastisement, which God allows to be used for man’s own pain and suffering.
When Satan has destroyed as much of mankind as he can with his belief system (religion), his empire-building governments will end in the fullness of the evil of the gentiles, which will culminate in a One World Order of government, economics and religion. At the same time, the Lord will pluck His own from this world before the judgment falls.
When the judgment comes, there will be seven years of it. The last three and a half years would wipe out even the elect to the house of Israel, were the Lord not to return quickly to save His own from the devastation. It is clearly depicted in the book of Revelation, with events happening, as I write, exactly as predicted by Jesus when He was here on earth. Then there will be a royal wedding in heaven, one like this world has never known.
The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, which recently took place in England, looked perfect in every way, as did the fruit, which was on the forbidden tree, look to Eve. But scratch just beneath the surface and one will find that the bride, dressed in white, was not a virgin and her dress, as beautiful as it was, was not provided from heaven, in the manner that Jesus will provide for His bride. Can Satan not create amazing illusions of perfection to draw us all into his world of rebellion?
Was this not a woman who refused to accept a covenant marriage where she is required to obey her husband? Amazingly, this was the same problem Eve had when she refused to obey God, only to become the mother of all harlots. Could this really be called a royal wedding by God’s standards?
The groom is a young man who, in all likelihood, will one day become king and head of the Anglican (Christian) institutional church. He will become a king and lord, but not King of kings or Lord of lords. He will rule over an apostate church, which has nothing to do at all with the apostolic church of Jesus Christ. This church is rooted in the Roman Catholic Church, which was founded in the Romanism of the Babylonian system. So why would he need a virginal bride when he is part of the harlotry of man?
Jesus warned that in the end many would come claiming to be the Christ, but they will be false Christs. Handsome and all as Prince William appeared standing there as a king of this world and a lord of religion, it is all false, belonging to the empire system of Satan, and not to God.
Pictures of this royal wedding will be flashed around the world for billions to see and admire for days to come. They will appear to be as luscious as the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil can get. After all, it looks beautiful to the eye, but is there not rebellion just below the surface? This will perhaps be the last royal wedding of a king of the world empires, witnessed by the entire world, before the Lord intervenes and takes His bride out of it and into the kingdom here on earth. Then there will be a royal wedding made in heaven.
My friends, we are looking at Satan’s last opportunity to lure man into harlotry and disobedience in his attempt to destroy the faith of God’s people. He will use all the counterfeits that he can ‘pull off’. We readily see how the Anglican Church had no problem blessing the marriage of a man and a woman who is not a virgin, holding them up as an icon of perfection to the world. But are they really the symbol of what the Lord requires of marriage? The buzz was that they were better prepared for their roles, because they had lived together, and had obviously been involved in a sexual relationship before entering into the covenant of marriage.
Do not be deceived, but heed the Word of God concerning these times. No one is King of kings and Lord of lords except Jesus, and no one else rules over His church, no matter how nice he is or how many good works he does. There is only one royal King and one royal wedding; His name is Jesus and His bride is the church; all else is but an illusion.
“For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be. And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.
Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand (Mark 13:19-23).”
