Which feast in Revelation 19 do you prefer: The Lamb or the birds?
My sermon notes from Dr. David Jeremiah's "Agents of the Apocalypse" sermon series.
Written Nov. 2, 2014
Revelation 19:9 CEV
Then the angel told me, “Put this in writing. God will bless everyone who is invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.” The angel also said, “These things that God has said are true.”
We want to be invited to the marriage feast of the Lamb - JESUS CHRIST - a feast for believers. That's a blessing!
The feast for the birds is the opposite - unbelievers will be the food because they did not receive the gift of Christ.
It's a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a Holy God.
Check out the "bird fest" Scriptures:
Revelation 19:17 VOICE
What I am telling you are the true words of God. Then I looked up and saw a messenger standing in the sun; and with a loud voice, he called to all the birds that fly through midheaven.
18 Heavenly Messenger: Come. Gather for the great feast God is preparing for you where you will feast on the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of the rich and powerful, the flesh of horses and their riders—all flesh—both free and slave, both small and great.
Those invited to bird fest will be supper for the birds!
Food for thought!
