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!

14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
