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!

Scriptures for life

Compiled December 2011
These are a few of my favorite Scriptures. I cannot live my life without God and his word. I keep a 3x5 wire bound note diary of verses that pop off the pages of my Bibles. This helps me in case I need to comfort someone with a specific verse. Start your own collection!

Job 4:4 Your words have comforted those who fell, and you have strengthened those who could not stand.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
