Written by Matthew Thompson
Luke 22:14 When the hour had come, He reclined at the table, and the apostles with Him. 15 And He said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”
In this passage, Christ peels back the layers of time and gives us just a glimpse of the feast that is to come. Revelations 19:9 calls it the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
You and I can only imagine what the original Last Supper was like. Despite Da Vinci’s best efforts, we don’t know exactly how the room looked, where everyone sat, what they wore, everything that was said, or what the experience meant to each one there. But praise God that we can not only know ABOUT the coming supper, we are His invited guests!
My favorite restaurant on this planet is Fogo De Chao. Though they have one the best salad bars around, when I go, I don’t even touch it. For me, it’s all about the meat. Circling the dining room are servers with 16 different cuts of meat on giant skewers. When they come by with one you like, you let them know and they cut off a slice and serve it to you. You can eat until you are on the verge of a meat coma. It is AWESOME. But as cool as it is, it’s NOTHING compared to what the Marriage Supper of the Lamb is going to be like.Nothing we will ever encounter on this earth will even come close to matching it. Don’t let the things of this world become your focus. You have a reservation, your place is prepared, and He is earnestly desiring to meet you there.
