The marriage supper of the Lamb in Revelation is not what you might expect. It’s a feast of justice! In my mind, we would sit down at the table and dine with the Lord; I’m sure that will happen too, but that’s not what this chapter emphasizes. Here, John shows us how exhilarating justice will be for the torment we suffer at the hand of the enemy and the victory we receive for staying true to Christ. The visual is incredible. It shows the enemy being slaughtered and eaten by vultures; however, the false prophet and the beast were thrown alive into the lake of fire! Whether this vision is symbolic or not, it’s an incredible picture of what is to come and will prove to be overwhelmingly satisfying.
Here’s another thought I had about all that is happening now; how would we know how amazing it is without the enemy if we hadn’t dealt with him? I don’t think we realize we are suffering because we’ve lived in the enemy's territory for so long that it has become second nature. Think about it; our food is full of poison, they spray the air with toxins, our water supply has chemicals injected, and we wonder why we are sick and disabled. They make us sick and then give us pills and drugs to make us better, except it probably makes us worse. God has a plan, and we will be victorious!
The following verses are about the bad guys, not us.
Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God, to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.” Revelation 19:17-18
