Growing up, my father always got home at 4:30 PM. The family would be sitting at the table, have prayed, and start eating by 4:33 PM. My mother had this super power of having all the food ready on time. Although, I didn’t realize what a talent that was until I got older and tried it myself.
I knew exactly when we were going to eat, but whenever company was invited over, it was a crap shoot. “Mom, I’m hungry! When are we going to eat?” I would ask. “Dinner is ready, so as soon as they get here,” she would reply.
There is something about sitting down to dinner together with family, or friends. Your day is pretty much over. You get to partake of the multiple flavors of the food presented on the table. The conversation, the laughing, it’s all very relaxing. I look forward to it.
The Angel said to me, “Write this: ‘Blessed are those invited to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.’” Revelation 19:9 (MSG)
This scripture promises there will be a dinner in heaven, but not just any dinner, a wedding dinner! Those are usually the best, and knowing from other scriptures in the Bible there will be more than enough food. The reason the angel said, “blessed are those invited” is, it means those who will be there made the right choice in believing God, and Jesus as his Son, and then accepted Jesus, and lived for him. We will be the bride of Christ.
That’s great news, but it means even more for me. This world is getting so corrupt, so anti-Christ. Hate is running rampant, wrong is becoming right. It all wears me out, but I remain hopeful, knowing that God has it all. But by the time we get to that table in heaven, it will mean, it’s over! I look forward to it. Now we can rest, eat, relax, share, and laugh.
You have been invited to this table, in fact, everyone has. You can make sure you have a seat by accepting Jesus into your life, but don’t keep putting it off, because
dinner is almost ready.
