The Wedding's Getting Closer!

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.

(Revelation 19:7)

Almost twenty years ago the Holy Spirit charged me with a very specific assignment, “make ready a people prepared for the Lord” (Luke 1:17, Malachi 4:5-6). Since that time the Lord has spoken to me on various occasions through simple poetry, The Wedding is one of those poems. The rhyme is simplistic, yet the words contain a clear warning for the world – Jesus is about to return for His Bride – and we are closer now than we have ever been. Prior to His return, chaos, confusion and spiritual darkness will be rife upon the earth, yet the Bride of Christ will have been waiting, watching and preparing for the coming of her Bridegroom. She will not be caught unaware. Because of her deep love for the Bridegroom, the Bride will maintain a standard of holiness and purity so that Christ might find her radiant - without spot or blemish (Ephesians 5:25-27, Revelation 19:7-9). Any person who has surrendered their life to follow Jesus will be part of the Bride. It does not matter what your past holds - every person on the earth is invited to be part of this celebration. All it takes is a willingness to love Jesus with your whole heart and to live your life according to His commands. I invite you to find a quiet place to read the following poem aloud and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart! A great celebration is about to take place - hope to see you there!

The Wedding

The wedding’s getting closer

Christ is coming for His Bride

He is calling forth His people

And there’s no place safe to hide.

You can sense the wedding jitters

In the people far and wide

For the wedding’s getting closer

And there’s no safe place to hide.

The wedding’s getting closer

And there is no sense of ease

There is much to yet accomplish

So, we’d best be on our knees.

We are past the point of planning

Many lamps have grown quite dim.

The Groom is coming closer

Are you ready to meet Him?

The wedding’s getting closer

You can feel it in the air

Major change now overtakes us

Those unprepared are running scared.

But the righteous remnant watches

For their coming Lord and King

As the wedding grows much closer

Can you hear them as they sing?

“Oh, the wedding is upon us

The day is now at hand

Come, awaken with Your Spirit

Those who sleep throughout the land.

We have hungered and we have waited

It’s almost too much to bear

But the wedding is upon us

And the Bride must now prepare.”
