SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN
1. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.
2. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Thy friend friendship suits me well,
Both young and will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.
3. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.
4. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee.
5. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds be black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.
6. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?
MEMORY VERSE: Then he said to me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
– Revelation 19:9
BIBLE PASSAGE: REVELATION 19:1-9
After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power [belong] to the Lord our God!
“For true and righteous [are] His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants [shed] by her.”
Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!”
And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!”
Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed [are] those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”
Marriage, in this context, symbolises the union between Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:22-32). It is, however, important to note that the Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the next event after the first phase of the second coming of Christ (the rapture).
1. DESCRIPTION OF THE MARRIAGE
2. IMPORTANCE AND QUALIFICATION
DESCRIPTION OF THE MARRIAGE
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the consummation of the union between Christ (The Bridegroom) and the Church (the Bride-without spot or wrinkles) – Ephesians 5:27; Revelation 19:1-9; Matthew 22:1-14.
The marriage will take place before the second phase of the second coming of Christ to the earth. Christ is the Bridegroom.
The wife is the redeemed or saints of all ages who will have part in the first resurrection and who will live in the New Jerusalem forever (Revelation 21:2). It is believed that the marriage supper will take place in Heaven (Revelation 19:9).
IMPORTANCE AND QUALIFICATION
The marriage supper of the Lamb is meant to assemble the saints of all ages and present them to God, the Father (Matthew 25:32-35), who will wipe away tears from their faces (Revelation 7:17).
It is also to take away the saints from the earth before the activities of the anti-Christ and the period of the tribulation (Isaiah 57:1). It will also be the period to reward faithful and diligent saints.
Those who will qualify for The Marriage Supper of the Lamb are the saints of God, whose garments of righteousness have not been stained – Revelation 21:27; Hebrews 12:14.
CONCLUSION: The marriage Supper of the Lamb, like all biblical prophecies, will be fulfilled. You cannot afford to miss it. Pray to God to keep you standing in Him and count you worthy of this great and unique event.
