The Heavenly Resurrection (Part 3)
“Praise Jah, because Jehovah our God, the Almighty, has begun to rule as king! Let us rejoice and be overjoyed and give him glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has arrived and his wife has prepared herself” (Revelation 19:6)
The Marriage Of The Lamb
The Husband, the King Jesus Christ and his wife the New Jerusalem, constitute the Kingdom of God who will rule over the Earth, in accordance with the Our Father’s Prayer: “Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth” (Matthew 6: 9,10). The Marriage of Jesus Christ in heaven is described in Revelation:
“And I heard what sounded like a voice of a great crowd and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of heavy thunders. They said: “Praise Jah, because Jehovah our God, the Almighty, has begun to rule as king! Let us rejoice and be overjoyed and give him glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has arrived and his wife has prepared herself. Yes, it has been granted to her to be clothed with bright, clean, fine linen — for the fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the holy ones” (Revelation 19:6–8). This heavenly marriage is also described in Psalm 45, which gives additional information about the earthly “children” as the result of this marriage: “Your sons will take the place of your forefathers. You will appoint them as princes in all the earth” (Psalms 45:16). These earthly princes who rule over all the earth, will be the earthly representatives of the royal authority of Christ and the 144000 (New Jerusalem), that is to say, of the Kingdom of God: “Look! A king will reign for righteousness, And princes will rule for justice. And each one will be like a hiding place from the wind, A place of concealment from the rainstorm, Like streams of water in a waterless land, Like the shadow of a massive crag in a parched land” (Isaiah 32:1,2).
In the prophecy of Ezekiel, these “princes” are designated by the function of the “chieftain”: “However, the chieftain will sit in it to eat bread before Jehovah, for he is a chieftain. He will come in through the porch of the gate, and he will go out through it” (Ezekiel 44:3).
