Day Five: The Party to End All Parties

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Revelation 19:6-8

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:

Hallelujah!
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.

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.

* (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)

When we read about the parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son we see true rejoicing.  In the book of Revelation we get a glimpse of a final ‘rejoicing,’ the rejoicing of all rejoicing.  For now, as we see lives ‘found’ in Christ we can and should rejoice; however, the ultimate and grand finale of all parties will take place in heaven. This party will top any party we have been to or ever seen.  This grand finale is described as the wedding of the Lamb (Christ) and His Bride (the Church).  We will be with the Lord forever.

But for now as we look forward and anticipate this wonderful day, we press on loving those who are supposed to be a part of that celebration.  Let’s not let one person in our sphere of influence miss this day.  In light of this Ultimate Party, let’s step up our praying and reaching out.  Let’s pray, “May your kingdom come and your will be done.”  Let’s ask the Lord to fill us with an overflowing hope for this generation, and a faith that is unrelenting in its love for the lost ones.
