I’ve been known as many issues in my life. A few of them, I’m not too happy with. Nonetheless, after I was little, folks known as me the human rubbish disposal. As is the case with many youthful boys, I had fairly the urge for food. Legitimately, folks would invite me over to their home to scrub out their fridge. My metabolism was insane as I by no means went over 200 kilos till after I graduated highschool. I used to be at all times the tall and thin man…not a lot anymore.
I’ve at all times had a loving relationship with meals for so long as I can bear in mind. To this present day even, my brother and I, if we all know we’re going to be consuming at mother and pop’s that night time, will textual content mother asking what’s on the menu so we might be excited for it…typically the day earlier than. That is additionally exemplified by the Lawson household’s love for popcorn. We’ve toned down somewhat bit however there was a time the place we’d fill a mixing bowl with popcorn, which might be for one particular person, which might be consumed with minimal effort.
A query that many individuals have is that if there’s going to be consuming in Heaven. As a “foodie” I can agree that that may be a good query! To reply it, I need to draw you to the 19th chapter of Revelation. Within the first eight verses of our studying, you might be given the context of what’s known as the Marriage ceremony Supper of the Lamb. It is a meal that can happen in Heaven together with all believers in Christ for all of time. I’m not going to do it justice so I might encourage you all to learn the primary eight verses and attempt to visualize simply how unimaginable a scene that can be!
What I need to draw your consideration to are four phrases in verse 9:
“…those that are invited…”
As talked about beforehand, this can be a celebration for many who have trusted in Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins. Those that die other than Christ is not going to be on the desk, as an alternative they are going to be experiencing everlasting torment in Hell.
These four phrases ought to shake us to our core. Who have you learnt that, in the event that they have been to die immediately, wouldn’t be invited to this meal? Who have you learnt that believes in God however doesn’t but have a private relationship with Him? Who have you learnt who continues to be residing of their sin?
It is a meal they will’t afford to not be at.
Think about what it will be like attending to Heaven and seeing a well-known face in line. It’s with tears of their eyes that they are saying, “If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be right here.” You would be the final time they hear the gospel of their lifetime.
Who have you learnt that should safe an invite to the Marriage ceremony Supper of the Lamb?
