Word for Today: An excerpt from the book They Transitional Marriage Supper of the Lamb”: Jesus' Finishing Mission! (Book available to read for free on our website www.flameoffire2007.org Resource link!)
Jesus Finishing Work:
For two thousand years the mission of the church was to be focused on casting out demons and performing healings. For those two thousand years, on what was the mission of the church really focused? Saving the lost at all cost, and building a large church or fruitful large ministry.
Yet the work of bringing forth full grown sons and daughters, which should have come with it, did not come forth.
The whole earth is still in travail awaiting the arrival of the manifestation of the Sons of God. Romans 8:18-19 states, “I consider that our present sufferings are not comparable to the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the revelation of the sons of God.”
When will the sons of God come forth in full maturity and how will the Lord accomplish this?
That is what is being unfolded before us. Jesus says, “I do healings and deliverance today and tomorrow,” which represents two prophetic days or 2,000 years.
Then He tells the Pharisees a profound prophetic word they won’t understand and for most of 2,000 years neither did the Bible scholars.
After the turn of the nineteenth century brought the return of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, God began to speak of His coming 3rd day Kingdom age. He began to reveal to His forerunners the understanding of the Kingdom age to come and what was needed to prepare a people.
As the previous millennium came to a close, these forerunners brought the remnant people of God to the place where the water is drawn out to become the new wine that is now coming forth.
They pointed this remnant to this 3rd day and its meaning so when Jesus knocks at their door they will hear and open it up to him and be able to drink this new wine and become the new wine Jesus has made.
This is exactly what Jesus said He would do after he worked His ministry today and tomorrow, He said to the Pharisees, “but on the third day I will finish my course, I will complete my mission, I will finish my work.”
Notice in all these renditions of the scripture the “finishing work” is highlighted, and He revealed and when He was going to do it. He planned on finishing, completing His work in His people on the THIRD DAY.
His plan was to bring forth full grown sons and daughters that would subdue the nations with Him and establish His kingdom on earth as it is heaven.
His timing to execute this plan fully begins with the revelation of the Kingdom age reality and the marriage supper of the Lamb that is offered to “any one” on the third day. Jesus, in the last moments of the second day church age, reveals the work to come and how he is going to do it.
This is why He tells the 2nd day church their spiritual condition and the remedy. They must get eye salve, get the right clothes, and buy gold tried by the fire (or get the extra oil you need in your lamp). Why?
The midnight hour approaches. That hour is here and we are beginning to hear, the sound of the bridegroom coming. Beloved it is time to go out and meet Him. Matthew 25:6 states, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.” (KJV)
When do we go out and meet Him? At the beginning moment of the third day. We meet Him at the midnight hour (or first hour of the third day).
This is the heart of the mystery of John chapter two. At the first hour of the third day (without much fanfare and notice) Jesus is at a wedding. When is He there?
On the third day! What does this miracle deal with? Just one thing, wine! Wine represents the work and person of the Holy Spirit. On the beginning of this third day wedding, the wine has run out.
Revelation chapter three testifies of what running out of wine looks like and our need for something more. Don’t you feel it in your heart, beloved of the Lord? That there has to be more to complete us?
At our present course and speed, it looks impossible for the Lord to complete us into full grown sons to rule and reign with him. Thank God there is a wedding at Cana on the third day!
In Revelation chapters 1-3 Jesus is now standing in the midst of the 7 churches. That represents the fullness of the church age beginning to the end of it. It speaks of Jesus being actively involved with his church. He has come on the scene to finish and complete His work, His course on the Third Day.
His purpose in revealing the 3rd day kingdom age and in bringing many sons into that place of glory with Him so the world will see Jesus in us. 2nd Thessalonians 1:10 states, “When He shall come on that Day to be glorified in His saints and to be admired in all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” (KJ21)
When does He come? At the midnight hour and beginning of the 3rd day Kingdom age Jesus comes with eyes of fire and feet like brass to thoroughly cleanse his people and to take them out of the 2nd day into the 3rd day. That day and hour began on the third day!
Understanding the Transition between the Days
What is the prophetic picture Jesus is unfolding now for us to understand and what is the value to us in becoming full grown sons and daughters of the Lord?
At Cana, on the third day, Jesus is going to work a miracle. This whole chapter is about that miracle. The whole point of this chapter is to show us there will be an end time supernatural work of the Lord that must come for Jesus to finish His course, His work, and His plan to bring forth many sons into glory.
The glory of becoming His Bride, His full-grown sons and daughters, is to rule and reign with Him as kings and priests upon the earth. For this to come about there has to be a transition of experience we must enter in with the Lord to be taken from one place of relationship in the church age to our new place in him in the 3rd day kingdom age. The Spirit of God revealed that to me with a name for it called the “Anointing of the Moment.”
We must have the extra oil for our lamps to go out and meet the bridegroom. For only with that extra oil can the finishing work begin as we open the door of our hearts for Him to enter and sup with us. He will lift us up into the full glory and power of the marriage supper of the Lamb (wedding at Cana reality) that Jesus will use to complete us.
This reality brings us forth as full-grown sons and daughters, kings and priest, a royal priesthood and a holy nation, and Bride without wrinkle or spot. A New Jerusalem City, a Bride all adorned in white will take dominion on the Earth with her Bridegroom King Jesus.
In Revelation 3:20, Jesus is standing as the “transitional door” between the two prophetic days. He is standing there as the “Door” and inviting us to open “our doors” to let Him in to sup with us. Where does he intend to sup with us? At the “prophetic wedding supper at Cana” or the beginning Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
Revelation 19:9 (AMP) states, “Then [the angel] said to me, write this down: Blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [further], ‘These are the true words (the genuine and exact declarations) of God."
There is presently the sound of a war trumpet of the Lord being sounded now between these two prophetic spiritual days. It is found in the call to “come out and go meet the bridegroom” in Matthew 25, or “Come to the feast, all things are now ready” in Luke chapter 14, or “Come up here, so I can show you the things to come” in Rev 4:1.
All of these trumpet sounds point to one place in time with God and that is Revelation chapter three, “I stand at the door and knock,” The knock is the sound of those calls I just wrote about. It is an upward call to come out of the second day church into the third day Kingdom age.
A Present Need to Have Ears to Hear
The end of the church age greatest problem for the saints of God is being able to hear the war trumpet call and answering it. The trumpet call is given in the midst of Revelation 3 church who needs nothing in its own heart. It is rich and in need of nothing.
This is problem that must be addressed for it is the true spiritual condition of the church in the last days of the 2nd day church age. Right now, in this transitional moment and change of spiritual days most of the church is deaf to this call. Most of the church doesn't even know there is a third day or even about the Kingdom age.
The Gospel of the true Kingdom reality has not been being preached. The Gospel of being saved is the only message being heard in many churches. The Gospel of the Kingdom message is hardly being heard accept to the “some” being drawn out of the clay pots Jesus told his servants to fill.
Those, (the some) who are hearing the knock and are answering the door have entered the invitation of Jesus to sup with him in these beginning marriage supper of the Lamb moments are being finished like gold and silver. They have entered into the transformational season of the third day marriage supper of the Lamb and are being changed from glory to glory.
They have left the second day church age and have entered the third day Kingdom age into the completed work of the Alpha and Omega God, Jesus Christ, King of Kings, and Lord of Lord, that Jesus has come to bring. “Today and tomorrow, I do healings and deliverance, but on the THIRD DAY, I WILL complete my course.”
The transition between the two prophetic days starts with understanding our true spiritual state, facing it, and seeing our true spiritual need. Only then will we be able to hear the knock on our hearts of Jesus inviting us to enter the third day marriage supper of the Lamb.
We must allow the Lord to come into our hearts in a deeper way to complete us and remove every trace of this spiritual condition of the second day church age that refuses to listen.
Beloveds, both prophetic days exist at the same time right now with a chance for all those who are in the church age to come into the fullness of life in the third day Kingdom age. If we rightly respond to that knock Jesus will release in us His finishing power and glory to cause us to become full-grown sons and daughters.
To accomplish that, Jesus has to remove our spiritual fig leaves once again and reveal our true need and nakedness before Him.
This is the true and genuine repentance needed for us to enter into the fullness of His Kingdom’s glory, power, and domain, to come forth as full-grown sons and daughters.
