Even So Come

Revelation Series
Four times in scripture believers in Jesus Christ are called the bride of Christ. As a bride we are to live with great anticipation for the day when we will be united with our Bridegroom. Our future wedding banquet was much on our Lord’s mind during the Last Supper. Jesus first mentioned it at the beginning of the Passover feast when He said, “I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God” (Luke 22:16).  He mentioned it a second time when passing the cup, saying, “I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes” (Luke 22:18).  Then, after the supper, He referred to the banquet yet again, saying, “I confer on you a kingdom . . . so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom” (Luke22:29-30). And when the Apostle Paul instructs us about what he received from the Lord about the Last Supper he writes in 1 Corinthians 11:26, “For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes."
Last Sunday at Celebration Community Church we sang Kristian Stanfill’s song which looks forward to this day…
“Like a bride waiting for her groom
We'll be a Church ready for You
Every heart longing for our King
We sing
Even so come
Lord Jesus, come”
As the bride of Christ,we are to remain faithful to Him and say with all the redeemed of the Lord, “ Even so come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20).
