TOPIC: A JOY CELEBRATION

Bible In A Year: Leviticus 13; Matthew 26:26–50

Key Verse: “The wedding of the Lamb has come.” – Revelation 19:7

Today’s Scripture: Revelation 19:1–9 (NIV)

INSIGHT: Who is the “great prostitute” who’s condemned in Revelation 19:2? It’s clear from Revelation 17:1–6, 15–16 that the prostitute is Babylon. However, this naturally raises the question: what is Babylon? Babylon is the world system that has “corrupted the earth” and killed God’s true servants (19:2). It’s a way of life—both cultural and political—at war with scriptural principles, with God-fearing people, and with God Himself.

Not to be missed in the chapter is the contrast between the “great prostitute” and the true bride of Christ—the church. It’s this “bride” that’s the target of so much persecution. Revelation 19 celebrates the final judgment of the world system that opposes God.

MESSAGE: OUR DAILY BREAD DEVOTIONAL 12TH FEBRUARY 2021

My friend Sharon passed away one year prior to the death of my friend Dave’s teenage daughter Melissa. They both had been tragically killed in car accidents. One night both Sharon and Melissa were in my dream. They giggled and talked as they hung streamers in a large banquet hall and ignored me when I stepped into the room. A long table with white tablecloths had been set with golden plates and goblets. I asked if I could help decorate, but they didn’t seem to hear me and kept working.

But then Sharon said, “This party is Melissa’s wedding reception.” “Who’s the groom?” I asked. Neither responded but smiled and looked at each other knowingly. Finally, it dawned on me—it’s Jesus! “Jesus is the groom,” I whispered as I woke up.

My dream brings to mind the joyful celebration believers in Jesus will share together when He returns. It’s portrayed in Revelation as a lavish feast called “the wedding supper of the Lamb” (19:9). John the Baptist, who prepared people for the first coming of Christ, had called Him “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

He also referred to Jesus as “the bridegroom” and to himself as the “friend” (like the best man) who waited for Him (3:29). On that banquet day and for all eternity we will enjoy unbroken fellowship with Jesus, our groom, and with Sharon and Melissa and all of God’s people. By: Anne Cetas

REFLECT: What does Jesus’ invitation to come to Him for forgiveness and eternal life mean to you? Who could you tell your story to?

PRAYER: I look forward to that day of celebration and seeing You, Jesus. Come quickly.

Hope you enjoyed reading Today’s Our Daily Bread Devotional 12th February 2021 – A Joyful Celebration. God bless you!
