Revelation 19:6-9 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Wedding of the Lamb
6 Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude—like the roar of rushing waters[a] or like the rumbling of powerful thunder—saying,
For Adonai Elohei-Tzva’ot reigns!
7 Let us rejoice and be glad
and give the glory to Him!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and His bride has made herself ready,[b]
8 She was given fine linen to wear, bright and clean!
For the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the kedoshim.”
9 Then the angel tells me, “Write: How fortunate are those who have been invited to the wedding banquet of the Lamb!” He also tells me, “These are the true words of God.”
Matthew 22 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Invitation to the Wedding Feast
22 Yeshua answered and spoke to them again in parables, saying, 2 “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who made a wedding feast for his son. 3 He sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they wouldn’t come. 4 Again he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who were invited, “Look, I’ve prepared my meal. My oxen and fattened cattle are killed, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast!”’
5 “But paying no attention, they went away, one to his own farm, another to his business. 6 And the rest grabbed his servants, humiliated them, and killed them. 7 Now the king became furious! Sending his troops, he destroyed those murderers and set fire to their city.
8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9 So go into the highways and byways, and invite everyone you find to the wedding feast.’ 10 And those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all they found, both bad and good; and the wedding was filled with guests.
11 “But when the king came in to look over the guests, he saw a man there who wasn’t dressed in wedding clothes. 12 ‘Friend,’ he said to him, ‘how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ But the man was silent. 13 Then the king said to his servants, ‘Tie him up hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.”
This FEAST is to PROPHETICALLY TAKE PLACE during YAH’S FEAST OF TABERNACLES / BOOTHS (in Hebrew: SUKKOT / SUCCOT) in future after the FIRST and SECOND RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE (& GUESTS) OF YAHUSHUA.
The WEDDING will take place under a CHUPPAH / HUPPAH which looks very much like the SUKKAH we build for the FEAST OF SUKKOT. I have come to an understanding that just like we on earth have various cultures, YAH (a.k.a GOD) too has a CULTURE. YAH’S CULTURE is the JEWISH CULTURE as this will be practised even in the NEW MILLENNIUM and for ETERNITY.
The CHUPPAH (WEDDING CANOPY) is all about YAH “tabernacling” with HIS BRIDE & GUESTS. It is a place of intimacy unlike on earth (Not sexual intimacy).
What is a CHUPPAH or WEDDING CANOPY? What is its significance?
Jewish weddings takes place under a CHUPPAH, which symbolizes the new Jewish home being created by the marriage.
The marriage ceremony is conducted under a marriage canopy, known in Hebrew as a chuppah (literally, “covering”). It consists of a square cloth, usually made of silk or velvet, supported by four staves, and ordinarily held by four men.
The chuppah (also commonly spelled huppah) is mentioned in the Bible in association with marriage: “As a bridegroom goes forth from his chuppah.” Elsewhere it is stated: “Let the bridegroom proceed from his chamber and let the bride go forth from the chuppah.”
The chuppah symbolizes the new home to which the bridegroom will take his bride. In this context, the appearance of the bride and groom together under a chuppah before an assembly who have come to witness the event is in itself a public proclamation by them that they are now bonded together as man and wife. It is a prelude to intimacy, and thus a significant element in nissuin [marriage].
The cloth chuppah was originally draped around the bride and groom but was later spread out over their heads. In some places, a tallit [prayer shawl] was draped over the couple or held above them. The single cloth under which the couple are joined thus symbolizes both the new household they are forming and represents the public recognition of their new status as man and wife.
The canopy is considered an object of Jewish ceremonial art, and in accordance with the Jewish concept of hiddur mitzvah (embellishing the precept), considerable attention is often lavished on it to create attractive chuppot.
The sages find a reference to the chuppah in the Talmudic passage in Avot, referring to the house which is open on four sides. The Jerusalemite R. Yosi ben Yohanan urges, “Let your house be wide open,” and compares the chuppah to the tent of the patriarch Abraham that, according to Jewish tradition, had entrances on all four sides to welcome wayfarers, so that no traveler, no matter from which direction he came, need be burdened searching for an entrance door. The chuppah, with four open sides, is thus a symbol of the Jewish home filled with chesed (acts of love), an important component of which is hachnasat orhim(hospitality to strangers), a mode of conduct that the newly married couple is expected to establish in their home in emulation of their patriarchal forebear, whose hospitality to strangers was legendary.
It is preferable for the chuppah to be outdoors, under the stars, symbolizing the hopes that the couple will be blessed with a large family, in conformity with God’s blessing to Abraham: “I will greatly bless you, and I will exceedingly multiply your children as the stars in heaven.” [The chuppah in the open air is also reminiscent of the sukkah , a temporary structure erected during the holiday of Sukkot . Like the sukkah, the chuppah reminds bride and groom that they are protected by God alone and that God is their only haven and support.]
The sages find an allusion to weddings being held outdoors in biblical times in Jeremiah’s reference to “the sound of the bridegroom and the sound of the bride… in the cities of Judaea and in the courtyards of Jerusalem.”
Strong reservations have been raised in some circles about holding weddings in synagogues because irreverent revelry might result in the profanation of the sanctity of the synagogue. Nevertheless, it was customary in many areas for weddings to be held in the courtyard of synagogues. Indeed, many synagogues in Germany were constructed with a built-in treustein, or “marriage stone” at a corner of the structure facing the inner synagogue courtyard, which bore the initial Hebrew letters of the above verse from Jeremiah. In these communities, the culmination of the marriage ceremony was marked by the groom throwing a glass goblet and shattering it at the treustein.
Some synagogues and wedding halls have a skylight that opens to allow the chuppah ceremony to be conducted under the sky. (Notes about the CHUPPAH copied from the following – https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/the-huppah-or-wedding-canopy/)
The ELIJAH of Malachi 4:5-6 will usher the BRIDEGROOM YAHUSHUA in by blowing a SPIRITUAL SHOFAR HORN. Only the SPIRITUALLY AWAKE, SENSITIVE will hear it, arise and prepare to meet their GROOM by being RAPTURED / HARVESTED FROM THE EARTH.
The WEDDING / MARRIAGE FEAST will occur in HEAVEN during the GREAT TRIBULATION before the MILLENNIUM (the 1000 years after the GREAT TRIBULATION).
