New Song In Heaven
Book of Revelation Chapter 19
Notice how this chapter starts. “After these things.” Meaning “let’s continue ”. This chapter is also filling you in to more insight as to what had taken place when all of Christ’s saints were taken up into heaven in Chapter 14 and 15. Remember in those chapters, the raptured saints were seen in heaven singing a new song? These are the words they will be singing.
Rev. 19:1 “And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, (singing) Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God:”
Rev. 19:2 “For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.”
Rev. 19:3 “And again they said, (sang) Alleluia…”
Rev. 19:5 “…Praise our God, all ye servants,”
Rev. 19:6 “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, (singing) Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.”
When this takes place, it will be a gathering of people like never before; their voices will most certainly be as thunder, but as gentle as a bride about to be betrothed.
Rev. 19:7 “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife that hath made herself ready.”
Rev. 19:8 “And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”
Rev. 19:9 “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”
The wife has made herself ready in heaven, all have been judged from the books, and the rewards have been given to all who took part in the harvest. They will have their clean white robes of linen on, and the groom will be the Lamb. What a day that will be! I can see the excitement and all the praise that will be in heaven, all because He sent His Son to earth to redeem us. What a price He paid where no other could. Praise God to the Lamb for He is the only one who will be found worthy to open the Seals, and in return, to give us back what we lost so long ago.
Now let’s continue in the story of what will take place after the wedding when we will all return to earth with Christ.
Rev. 19:11 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.”
Rev. 19:12 “His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.”
Rev. 19:13 “…and His name is called the Word of God.”
Rev. 19:14 “And the armies which were in heaven, followed him upon white horses,”
Rev. 19:15 “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”
Rev. 14:19 “And the angel thrust his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.”
Rev. 14:20 “And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”
Rev. 19:16 “And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”
Rev. 19:17 “And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God.”
Rev. 19:18 “That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.”
Rev. 19:19 “And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.”
Rev. 19:20 “And the beast was taken and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
Rev. 19:21 ” And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which Sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.”
You need to really watch what all of these Scriptures are saying. Right after the wedding in heaven, the wedding supper will take place. It sounds strange what will be on the menu. These Scriptures are giving the final details of the battle of Armageddon. Remember at the end of the sixth year; Scripture gave a time element of how long the battle of Armageddon will last (one hour, one day, one month, and one year to slay the third part of men) (Rev.9:15). The sword that God will use will be His Word, from out of His mouth. The flesh is what gets everybody in trouble. Did you notice what will be eaten at the supper, Flesh of Kings, Captains, Mighty Men, and Horses? Does that sound like something you want to partake of?
What this is saying, when the remnant is slain, it will be by the Word out of the mouth of Christ; the fowls (Angels) will take away the flesh of man who will no longer walk in the flesh, but in the spirit of God. The flesh that will be eaten is only a symbolic way of letting you know Satan will no longer have his way through the flesh, for he will be bound for the next one thousand years. Satan’s spirit will not be here. Through the flesh is the way he can use you.
Many people don’t want to give up the pleasures Satan deceives them with, so there will be many who will go through the coals of fire to be refined as pure gold right along with the wicked ones, through six thousand years up to now. Now one may say, why would God do that?
Eze. 14:21 “For thus saith the Lord God; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?”
Eze. 14:22 “Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem,”
Eze. 14:23 “And they shall comfort you, when ye see their ways and their doings: and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord God.”
There will be many people turning toward God right at the end. For some of us, it could be our sons or daughters. For those, wasn’t it worth it? This applies even today when we pray for our loved ones. For some, God has to put them in a winepress for them to turn away from Satan and his evil ways. We may not understand at the time, but what a beautiful picture of God’s Love portrayed here, giving our sons and daughters back to us that might otherwise be lost.
To see that picture of God’s love, read II Samuel, Chapter 18. It portrays a picture of Christ who will weep bitter tears over many sons who would not turn from evil, as David’s son who would not turn either. David had to sacrifice him to save Israel from destruction the same as what Christ had to give up to save the world. To save the whole lump, there can be no leaven.
Lets now go to the 20th Chapter.
