Sorry, for the interruption of blogs. My husband and I were visiting family in Michigan for the wedding of our niece which helps fulfill a desire I have: I LOVE going to weddings! The wedding dress, the flowers, the music and the reception afterword. I’m even more excited realizing that my youngest son, and his bride to be will be tying the knot in September! More wonderful moments to file in the recesses of my mind for future memories!
Now, if you’re like me, the talk of weddings gets me to thinking about the biggest wedding of all time and no, I’m not talking about William and Kate, Harry and Megan, or even from back in my day, Charles and Diana.
Please be sure to click on the bottom right selection of Charles and Diana , The Royal Wedding 1981. What?! This July 29th will be the 40th anniversary of the day they got married. You will have to forgive me, but I go into an amnesia like reckoning whenever I hear of “the other woman”. Just reminds me that we ALL need the blood of Christ!
I remember waking up early, early, early to see the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer to Prince Charles finding her nervousness and wedding day jitters while repeating his name as Philip Charles Arthur George instead of his actual name of Charles Philip Arthur George (really?!) endearing.
That my friends, was the beginning of my love affair with everything Brittish. Especially all the pomp and circumstance of Royal Weddings!
This had also turned into a fascination of everything that had to do with Diana, including her children. I was thrilled to be an onlooker of William, Kate, Harry and Megan’s wedding days also, but they seemed to have a missing sparkle to me because Diana wasn’t there.
All I have to say about Megan and Harry’s current relationship to the Crown and all that entails is the British commonwealth lost a great opportunity the world could have been a witness to on how we are to embrace and love everyone God puts in our path. Especially family!
As big as those weddings were in the world, there is one that is going to shatter, decimate and be so incredible that our finite minds can’t even comprehend or understand fully now, that all else will be forgotten. It will be in the cosmic spiritual world and is known as the Wedding Supper of the Lamb!
Revelation 19:7-10 speaks of it, “Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.” Just in case you need confirmation of the bride’s identity, she is the resurrected children of God that professed Jesus as Lord and she will be standing right by her groom, Jesus!
Bride and Grooms know each other intimately. They have been talking to one another in the hushed, quiet tones of love. They have whispered each other’s dreams and hopes for the future and come to discover one another’s likes and dislikes. Favorite hobbies, songs, colors, and food are not too mundane for the soon to be Bride and Groom.
This is no casual, come every day relationship. Time has been taken to cultivate, study, observe and learn of one another. That is why we as Christian followers are instructed to learn and study the Bible. I know, I know. It seems hard to comprehend and understand at first, but Jesus himself promises that, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.”
God will help you to discern and understand what you need to know. The crucial step is to start somewhere. Who knows all the things that God has stored in your heart? He does and He will awaken the things within you that might have lied dormant for so long. Wake up that “spiritual man/woman”.
He is calling us to, “Awake, you who sleep, Arise form the dead, And Christ will give you light.” Ephesians 5: 14, Isaiah 26:19; 60:1, Romans 13:11 to be looking for Him and waiting vigilantly!
