Oh the Rejoicing

Oh the joy, the dancing, the hugging, the celebration, the victory. Oh the awe, weeping for joy, the cheering, singing, hands raised up. Oh the worship, the blowing of trumpets, the laughing for joy. Oh the shouting, the celebration, the gladness, the triumph. Oh the elation, the rapture, the excitement, the intense love for all present, oh the rejoicing…

…when we are united with our King, our Husband, our Lord, our Beloved God and Redeemer. On that day.

The world has the Obama victory. It has the World Series victory. We have Jesus’ victory. We have Him.

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. Gal.6:14

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Cor.15:57

For what is our hope or joy or crown of exultation(rejoicing)? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming? 1Thes.2:19

And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Is.35:10

With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace. Ps.45:15

The King on His Wedding Day

The wedding approaches. The King will be so glorious, handsome, celebrated and blessed.

Grace is poured upon His lips. Mighty with sword on thigh, He is victorious in splendor and majesty, reigning forever in His Kingdom. He defeats His enemies, loving righteousness and hating wickedness. God anoints Him with the oil of joy and clothes Him in garments with beautiful fragrances. Music is playing and He is glad.

Forget your people and your father’s house! The King will desire our beauty. Because He is our Lord, we bow down to Him. We will be glorious within and clothed in stunning beauty. We will be brought to Him. We will be led to the King with gladness and rejoicing! We will enter into the King’s palace! We will declare His name and give thanks and praise to Him forever.
