Revelation Chapter 19 - The King, the Queen, the Wedding and the Gatecrashers

Revelation 19 - The King, the Queen, the Wedding and the Gatecrashers

How did we get this far?

Ch 6 - 20 "a brief history of the world" in several cycles. They do not exactly overlap, but tell the same tale, like a collage, a mural.

We are now up to the last of the cycles, being ch 19 and 20. Today, we look at ch. 19.

After This ...

"After this" - v1 - after what? Ch. 18, and complete wipe-out of human and demonic power, with destruction of the great prostitute and the great city, described as "Babylon". The 2 are the same. The fists of men and devils, shaken in God's face, are shamed. Note: we had reached "THE END" again, but now we start over again - another cycle.

The Scene

The Scene v1-6

and notice:- Salvation and judgment go hand in hand. They always must, for a holy God is a God who divides. His mercy separates His salvation (through Jesus, of all who will cast themselves on Him) from His judgment of all evil in time now, but not forever. At the end of all things both will be complete.

"O the joy to be in heaven!"
   Song of Songs ch. 2:8-13 (ESV)
8 The voice of my beloved!
Behold, he comes,
leaping over the mountains,
bounding over the hills.
9 My beloved is like a gazelle
 or a young stag.
Behold, there he stands behind our wall,
 gazing through the windows, 
 looking through the lattice.
10 My beloved speaks and says to me:
 "Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
 and come away,
11 for behold, the winter is past;
 the rain is over and gone.
12 The flowers appear on the earth,
 the time of singing has come,
 and the voice of the turtledove
 is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree ripens its figs,
 and the vines are in blossom;
 they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
 and come away.

What a contrast with the corrupted and corrupting woman of ch. 17!
