The Marriage Feast of the Lamb

This painting is based on a dream/vision that I had a few weeks ago. The explanation is below.

Wedding Feast of the Lamb

After the battle, we saw a feast: the wedding feast of the Lamb. The table was huge, it was long, and stretched out for miles, all the way to the horizon. It was covered with beautiful snowy white linen, that was embroidered in white thread with scenes of man’s relationship with God, starting with Adam and Eve, up until the present. Adam and Eve were there, too, at the head of the table with Jesus; He was at the head. Others from the Bible were there, too, along with other believers, all laughing and talking and joking together, enjoying the food and fellowship.

The plates and silverware were made of pure translucent gold, it shimmered; the goblets look like they were made from diamond. The food was fantastic. Toasts were made, one after another; many to Jesus, God the Father, and Holy Spirit first. Then, people began toasting one another, and God’s faithfulness to them; everyone was eager to hear each other’s stories that honored acts of love for God they had done, and testimonies of God’s goodness. There was cake, too, and a present beside each plate. When people opened it, each was given a crown, each was different and beautiful; we knew that later Jesus would be taking each person to the Father, who would place the crown on their head.  The verse from Hebrews came to mind, that God is restoring our faith. Each person will have a crowning ceremony, and the angels will cheer, and clap, and others will, too. Jesus was showing us what the final outcome will be, after the great battle. This feast was wonderful, and joyful beyond belief.

Note: Please be aware that I do not fully understand what I saw in this; it is not meant to be used to base a theology on. I am trying to describe – and paint – what seems almost indescribable. What I do know is that it means that God has good things planned for us!

On the process: I wanted to depict the sense of glory, honor and delight as everyone is turned towards God, and toasting Him and the Lamb and the Holy Spirit. I used swarovski crystals to show the royalty and beauty present. I realize that I did not depict food, but wanted to show the beauty of the plates and chairs by using gold paint. People are going to want to know what the images on the table are: on the right, is Jesus pulling a man whose hand is extended to Him, out of water where he was drowning. In the middle one is an angel pouring out healing oil. The third one shows Jesus holding a tiny baby that was unwanted, and comforting it, telling the baby He loves him. The fourth shows Mt. Sinai in the clouds.

  1. Dear one, this is a lovely painting of what is to come, the marriage supper of the lamb, and I’m very glad you were quick to point out that your vision is not meant to base theology on, as it is servery lacking in doctrinal accuracy. Was this vision from the LORD Jesus, or from your soul? I’d say your soul, since it is lacking in Scriptural reality. Is that bad? I don’t think so, after all, you admitted it isn’t to be used to base theology on, and I greatly appreciate you honesty.

    However (you saw that coming, huh?💗), I am still concerned nevertheless. That is why, from one artist to another, I want to share with you the reality of who God really is. Please bear with me. He isn’t an amalgamation of three separate co-equal, co-eternal persons at all, like you mention was toasted to in your dream, of course alluding to the Trinity. Please allow me to explain before you decide I’m wrong. Thank you.

    God is indeed one, but not in three persons as is claimed. Rather he is the Father, who humbled himself and came to his creation in the flesh. He named his flesh, Jesus, for Jesus means, Yahovah (God the Father’s personal name) is salvation. Do you see it? Isn’t this what Jesus said, that he came in his Father’s name to do his Father’s work? In the Old Testament, God the Father says he is the only savior, there is no other. In fact, he says there is no other God like him, he knows not one, much less two other “God the’s.” Well, in Hebrew, Jesus is Yeshuah, is it not? Yes. That is what his name means, Yahovah is salvation! As Jesus told Philip, if you’ve seen him, then you’ve literally seen the Father! So again, the Trinity is a man-made lie, the syncretism of mono and polytheism, a golden calf, if you will. Remember how Aaron likened the golden calf unto God’s name? saying near the golden calf, “Tomorrow, we will have a feast unto the LORD.” Only Moses’s intersession kept God from killing him for such a wicked thing!

    The Trinity was brought to us by Greek philosophers who thought themselves to be saved through study of the Scriptures, which they interpreted through their allegory of pagan philosophy, something we were warned about in the epistles!

    So it comes to this, if you really want to serve the God of the Bible, then believe by faith that God the Father himself, came as his only begotten Son – Jesus, via his Holy Spirit. God is not three persons, he is ONE!

    Do you think this impossible?–that God the Father made himself to dwell in flesh so he could dwell among us? Why do you think that is impossible? I do not. God the Father is Holy, and he is Spirit. He is also omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnific. That means he has all power to be who he says he is: I AM, which means, what ever I will be, I will be.

    In this case, he is his own flesh and blood Son, who also happens to be divine, because he came from above, he came forth from the bosom of the Father! Why would anyone prefer the lie that says God needed a second god person to do his bidding by dying on the cross? The real love of God is that he sacrificed himself, as his own Son, not someone else, or a second god person. That is paganism 101. Pagan gods need another god to do their bidding, and their worshipers have to sacrifice their own children, something that never entered into God’s mind for anyone to do. That’s why there are trinities found in every false religion on the face of this earth, they all came from Babylon and Nimrod, the first Antichrist. If God is truly one, and he is, then he is not a trinity, like all the other godheads of this dead and dying world are!

    Let’s be brutally honest, for a Christian to say that the Trinity isn’t polytheism, is like a Catholic who says they don’t worship Mary, they venerate her! Think carefully about that before you say otherwise. The Trinity IS polytheism, whether the worshipers of the Trinity want to admit it or not, for as surly as Catholics say they don’t worship (Ishtar) Mary, we all know that they certainly do!

    It is my humble prayer that anyone who reads this will accept this truth found in Scripture, but God will only reveal himself to the humble and those with faith, like believing Abraham!

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this. You make some excellent points, and I am willing to listen to them, especially since I sense they were given in love and a desire to be helpful. But I must tell you that I disagree.
      I would like to share my own thoughts about the Trinity. Because scripture is the basis for my theology, I will make numerous scriptural references here.
      While the Shema gives a call to prayer by emphasizing the fact that the LORD is one (Deut. 6:4) and numerous other scriptures describe the fact that there is only one God (1 Kings 8:57, 60; Isaiah 44:16: “I am the first and I am the last, besides me there is no God”), this does not preclude a God who is one and who is also three at the same time; this is a mystery but one that is supported throughout the Bible.
      This plurality of the one God is noted starting in Genesis 1:26-27: “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to our likeness….so God created man in His own image” (underlines and bold are mine for emphasis). Or, in Genesis 3:22: “Then the Lord God said, ‘Behold, the man has become like one of us.” In Isaiah 6:8 God says “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us” (note the plural “us” used here). Later in Isaiah 7:14, the prophet declared that the sign that God would give was that a virgin would bear a son, whose name would be Immanuel (meaning “God with us”). In Isaiah 6:3, the seraphim declare God as holy three times, which some have said indicates His triune nature.
      The New Testament is even clearer on this point. In John 1:14, it says “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” Or in John 1:18” “No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared Him.” And Jesus Himself said in John 10:30: “I and my Father are One.” In John 14:9, He says “He who has seen Me has seen the Father, so how can you say ‘show us the Father’?” This makes it clear that Jesus was declaring that He and the Father are one. In John 1:1-3, it declares that Jesus (the Word) was in the beginning, and Colossians says “and all things were made by Him” (creation is an attribute of God).
      We also will worship Jesus in heaven, as Revelation 5:12 states, declaring “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honour and glory and blessing.” This is a type of worship reserved for God alone.
      In John chapter 14, the role of the Holy Spirit as comforter and helper is defined. This part of the trinity can be grieved (Ephesians 4:30); blasphemed (Matthew 12:31), and is referenced as a person in Acts 15:28 “It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us.” Scripture declares that converts are to be baptized “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).
      In 1 Corinthians 3:16, 17 it notes that the Spirit of God dwelling in a person makes that person’s body the temple of God. The Holy Spirit is also the author of scripture (2 Peter 1:21). And Joh 15:26 says “the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father”.
      While the word trinity was not used until the late second century in the church, the concept had been around since the beginning of the church due to the many scriptures that support it (including those above, as well as many others), and was later codified in what we now know as the Nicene Creed. This is why I do believe in a trinity; I believe that scripture supports it.

      • I think your vision and painting of the marriage supper of the lamb is very biblical. I am in awe as I saw this same vision over 11 years ago and have been wanting to paint it but couldn’t get the perspective right. In my vision we were around the table that went on for miles, we seemed far away, but yet very close because there was thousands of us. It was beautiful. Nice to see I’m not the only one who saw this. See ya at the wedding feast.

  2. Thank you for sharing this painting. I am speaking at a memorial service this evening, for which the family has chosen the reading Isaiah 25.6-9, and I hope you will not mind if I share this picture.
