What if someone planned an elaborate wedding reception in a fancy garden venue in a beautiful location, with the best foods and wine, fragrant overflowing flowers, a light-enhanced bubbling fountain, and soul-stirring music. Not only this but the invitation reads, “no gifts accepted as each guest will RECEIVE a gift and we have also bought and paid for wedding attire for each guest to wear into the dinner, but please don’t be late to the reception as the doors will be shut and locked when the food is served to the guests”
What if you decided not to come because it seemed strange or different than other wedding receptions you have attended? What if you ignored the invitation because it just seemed too good to be true? What if you made excuses that your life circumstances were too pressing to drop everything, and besides, how would they know what size I wear or what I look good in? What if your rational, logical mind talked you out of coming? What if you didn’t know you were betrothed and it was all for YOU? Or, what if you woke up LATE, were late to the party and found the doors locked and no matter how hard or long you knocked on the doors, they never opened again?
The King of glory has courted and betrothed his bride and only the wedding reception and consummation of the marriage hasn’t happened yet, but the table is already set with all the finery in the spiritual dimension of the kingdom of heaven on earth, and the Father of the Bridegroom is overseeing getting the new home prepared so the Royal King Groom can move in with his bride; making YOU a royal of the lineage of King David by marriage!
Your body is the house that Wisdom and Power (Christ is both) is trying to build now so the King of glory can enter in all his LIGHT, GLORY, and manifest PRESENCE! The old wineskin will burst if you tried to put His new wine into your old body and soul and spirit. All we have to do is come to Jesus, rest your soul, learn from his gentle, humble heart, and yoke with him! Yoking with his Christ, his Spirit, is to become betrothed, setting in motion the washing and regeneration of the Holy Sprit, the oil and spices preparing your body like Esther’s was prepared to go into her earthly King! But our King is King of kings and Lord of lords and is over all of heaven and earth, and YES he wants an intimate relationship with YOU and to marry YOU and he is betrothed to YOU but you just have to wake up and realize he has asked for YOUR HAND and his Father has given his Blessing and is overseeing the building of your new heaven on earth home!
This is no pie-in-the-sky dream! This is no smoke and mirrors show! This is not false signs and wonders in the sky! This is not a second coming deception, a counterfeit of the real! This is the REAL and all you have to do is wake up and receive Christ and RSVP yes and amen to the Spirit and Bride who say, “Come to your wedding reception feast!”
“Blessed is she who eats bread in the kingdom of God…’Come; for ALL is now ready.’ But they all alike began to make excuses…’Go out and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled…or they will not taste my banquet.’ ” Luke 14:15-24

“When we are saved [soul made a spotless bride], we are like jewels in his Crown, we shall shine in the NHONE…new wine makes the bride flourish…our hearts shall be glad as with wine…our hearts exult in the Bridegroom, our Beloved…Our Father signals for us to come for he has already REDEEMED US…he brings us into our new marriage Home” Zechariah 9:16-10:12
Be a betrothed bride, let the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of LOVE purify, refine and make your soul white as snow! Take the glory Jesus is offering you, its radiance like a most rare jewel, clear as crystal; take ascended Christ’s refined pure gold and let him clothe you in your white wedding garments, your soul and spirit filled with his glory as its light, your body lit up like a lamp! (Revelation 3:18; Revelation 21:11-23) Say YES to the invitation: “The Spirit and Bride say, ‘Come!’ And let those who hear say, ‘Come!’ And let those who are thirsty come, let those who desire the consummation of our soul’s marriage to the Bridegroom, take the water of life without price!” Revelation 22:17
“Under the apple tree I AWAKENED you…My LOVE flashes like fire, a flame. Many waters cannot quench my LOVE, neither can floods drown it…we are Christ’s vineyard…we are asked to dwell in his new Garden…” Song of Songs 8:5-14
“I am my beloved’s, and his desire is for me. Come my beloved, lets eat!” S of S 7:10-11
