Shiddukhin: The selection of the bride Ketuba: Is the proposal and the purchase price (mohar) for the dowry must be established with two un-objectionable witnesses. Matthew 17
Kiddushin: Is the first part of a two part ceremony, this signifies the sanctifying or dedicating of the bride to him only. (Eph 5) Erusin: This is also part of the first, It is the announcement of the covenant and purchase price with a ceremonial cup of wine. There must be at least 10 witnesses who will now go and broadcast the ceremony . Matthew26
The first step of part two of the ceremony is the nissuin, this is the first phase of cohabitation and is predicated by a separation period in which the groom prepares a home for the bride. John 14 The second step of part two is conducted in a huppah or the place of consumation.
The wedding tradition is accompanied by both a word and blood covenant. Upon arrival to take His bride the bridegroom descends with a shout to announce His arrival . 1 Thess 4 The groom is responsible for the dress of the wedding and the invitation .. Matthew 22
This wedding ceremony is about to be complete. As God prepares to send His Son to get His Bride. This Jewish wedding custom shows the urgency of the hour, because it is almost fulfilled. We can see where we are at on God s timetable!
Preparations Being Made
Matthew 24 Jesus prophetic preparation for His Saints. Ephesians 2.10; Romans 9.23 Preparation done for us in Christ Matthew 25 The importance and urgency in our preparation for Christ s return.
Ephesians 6:13-18 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints
Ephesians 6.15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Preparation hetoimasia- readiness. The Gospel itself is to be the firm footing of the believer, his walk being worthy of it and a testimony to it. Shod (bind) hupodeo under, to bind underneath. Without shoes, our feet get hurt when we try to walk, run, etc. if our feet get hurt, we can t even walk!
Accept Christ s invitation (salvation) Matthew 22:9-10 Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding. So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests. The importance of sharing the Gospel, we extend His invitation. Matthew 22:2-5 The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, Tell those who are invited, See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding. But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business.
Live worthy of Him and the marriage contract The contract is the Word of God 1 Peter 1:16 because it is written, Be holy, for I am holy. Exodus 24:7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, All that the LORD has said we will do, and be obedient.
Be properly dressed for the wedding Matthew 22:11-14 But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. Luke 1:17 He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. 2 Timothy 2:21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
