Scripture reading: Matthew 22:1-14

The marriage supper of the Lamb is the place in the spirit, where the sons of God receive the seed of Christ within their souls, and the long sought after change begins to occur in their soul nature. This change is variously described in the scripture, and is the “parousia,” or “coming,” in 2nd Peter 1:16,

“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming (“parousia,” in Greek) of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eye witnesses of His majesty.”

This word “coming,” as used here in the Greek, means not only the arrival of Jesus Christ, but the coming within His church, and the eventual revelation and manifestation to the world.

Contrary to old beliefs, the marriage supper of the Lamb is not in the skies somewhere in space or on another planet, but RIGHT HERE AND NOW. The word of God proves this.

Matthew 22:11-13, “And when the King came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

This, above all others, shows definitely that the wedding FEAST is right here on earth, and that it is not a rapture which shall take us up into the skies for a wedding feast. This we know surely, because there was a man in that feast, according to the word we just read, which should not have been there and who was cast out. THIS IS AN EARTHLY SCENE of those in our midst, who are not covering themselves with the righteousness of God, but just taking the word in their natural minds without absorbing it into their spiritual beings.

The work of the Holy Ghost is to inseminate the bride at the marriage feast with the Christ seed, so that she might bring forth Christ. If the ministry is the husband of the church, then the ministry would come forth from her, which would not be good enough.

In view of this light on Matthew 25, in the parable of the virgins, we can see that the SPIRIT is called the lamp and the SOUL, the vessel. This is confirmed by scripture.

Proverbs 20:27, “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.”

The word “candle” is to be translated “lamp,” and the word “belly” is to be translated “soul.” Thus, the spirit of man is lit by the Spirit of God, and when it is, it sheds light into the vessel of the soul. God, speaking of Paul in Acts 9:15, says, “He is a chosen vessel unto me.”

Romans 9:21 speaks of “vessel unto honor.” From the Old to the New Testament, man, the soul, is referred to as a vessel. It is God’s revealed will that He desires man’s soul to be like his Spirit. This is the chief reason God desires to inhabit man’s soul with His Holy Spirit. This is clearly expressed in the scripture.

Matthew 6:10, “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

This expression applies not only to the heavenly invisible realms of God, where He dwells in all the magnitude of His unimaginable power, but in every realm which is called heaven. Now, heaven is the dwelling place of Almighty God, and wherever God prepares for His dwelling place is heaven. Thus, if we are the “temple of the living God,” then we must be a heaven. God dwells in our spirits when we are filled with the Holy Ghost, therefore this scripture can be applied to our souls that God is making the soul of man as perfect and as habitable as His Spirit. “Thy will be done IN earth” means within the earth man or the soul man, as it is in the spirit man.
