When revelation is received from the Holy Spirit, it is often so personally profound that is is difficult to share with others. This is certainly the case with regard to a wonderful and amazing revelation I was gifted with recently. It is not so much that the event itself was so complex as to render communicating it to others in words so difficult, but actually quite the contrary. In most cases, revelation from the Holy Spirit is brief, succinct, yet so penetrating to the soul that it will never be forgotten. I have come to refer to these events as points of light, connecting one another in spiritual memory. This was certainly the case as I received this particular revelation, which highlighted a previous revelation I had received about a year ago. That previous revelation was a brief but powerful and profound invitation to “come to My table and feast.” Although there was no doubt in my mind about the meaning of the invitation from my Lord and Savior, the revelation I received just a few days ago provided a burst of magnificent light upon it.
This revelation came about while I was doing some study in the Gospel of Matthew about the Last Supper. The verse that triggered this most wonderful event was Matthew 26:29.
I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
As I read this verse, The Holy Spirit guided me to Revelation 19:9.
Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”
What a tremendous promise and invitation! As Christians, we who have experienced rebirth in Christ will all be present at the Great Banquet. Additionally, we have all been give the Commandment from our Lord and King to “ go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” Matthew 28:19
How deep is our faith? The writer of the Epistle of Hebrews says, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 Is our assurance manifested in a deeply personal relationship with the Personhood of the Holy Trinity, the reality of the Kingdom of God, and eternal life through Jesus Christ?
To all my brothers and sisters in Christ, I wish you all a most wonderful time of worship and praise during this Easter season. And by the way, I shall see you all at the Great Banquet…and don’t forget to bring a friend!
Yours in Christ-
