The Story behind “Perfect Fall Wedding : The Coming of Christ”

A fourth book has typical challenges in the sense that one begins to feel somewhat jaded and must recover perspective as though indeed there is something else coming that is yet to be said as it should.  “Three” in the Bible is the number that denotes perfection …the revelation of God in the Trinity.  Four is three plus one … that which proceeds from His complete perfection and that must be His creative work.  “Four” is emphatically the number of Creation;

The fourth day saw the material creation finished (for on the fifth and sixth days it was only the furnishing and peopling of the earth with living creatures). The sun, moon, and stars completed the work, and they were to give light upon the earth which had been created, and to rule over the day and over the night (Genesis 1:14-19).

Perfect Fall Wedding is therefore perhaps more creative than previous works.  It is not a book about true or false predictions. The metaphor of marriage and a love letter from the  groom to His bride was for me the very best canvas with which the creative agenda of the Godhead could be completely and thoroughly understood.  Indeed there are  snippets in the Bible to help us deal with every challenge and truly the Bible can be a prosperity book, a government manual, a guide for ethics, a cure for social maladies and even more…but this is like Peter being shown where to find the fish but after invited to come and dine only to discover prepared bread and fish was hot and ready waiting …his fish search  irrelevant.

In my few years of teaching, and I have taught extensively the contents of this book, I have not found a picture so familiar and easy to relate to and understand and yet so compelling to tie the plans of God together as the marriage of the Lamb does –from before time into Genesis to Revelation and the after-time.  I have not found imagery so vivid to explain heaven, hell, eternity and judgment as that of a wedding.  The joy of purification, having dominion and remaining apart is no more hard to appreciate or seen as drudgery when this is understood as part of preparations. Also I have not known any other ceremony with more prearrangements, colour and style.  God created us with a style and flourish that is uniquely His – through this metaphor we catch some glimpse of it.  The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is but nothing compared to what God has laid out.

Why the obsession with “Fall” … the season of the feast of Trumpets which I have said in the Book foreshadows the Rapture.  We know the significant events in the calendar of God did not merely occur they were announced by prophetic fulfilment of feasts as given to Moses in Leviticus.  But the Bible warns us not to relax in the winter, spring and summer and expect to be set for His coming in the Fall.  More importantly a saint unprepared for Him anytime will not be prepared even at a given set time…noting that preparation is given to the Bride – a grace she receives, but cannot originate. The chosen bride will without doubt be prepared.

The book is not about how to live a happily married life, but it does emphasise divine directions as it pertains to marriage ordained by God and not man.  Marriage is therefore always a spiritual and theological issue and not a civil construct. This book is not remotely new revelation – only that present day readers I suspect peep in the word nervously … finding right answers to trivial questions … rather than be given to diligent study and examine research, context and previous interpretations allowing the Holy Spirit to guide.  Also the great achievement of post-modernism  is to suggest to a world with itching ears that Biblical truths are nothing but plain fantasy. Only crazy people will believe in a millennium reign of Christ with His saints.  Existentialists will call this book – a mere piece of futurism and an escape from reality due to inability to cope with today’s challenges.

The key aim of Perfect Fall Wedding is to help the preparation of the bride – the Church – chosen from the foundations of the world.  The bride will glow with joy browsing through the chapters and will keep her letter.  Many others, atheists, non Christians will feel a tug in their heart – a call to return to what has always been there – back to your husband , your maker.  But some will read and feel excitement, entertainment, annoyance, a thrill, a sense of fantasy, amusement, outright disgust, unbelief and anger –like someone devouring the contents of a letter written to another and wondering …what utter nonsense.

Isaiah 54 [5]  For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

2011 Predictions and Prophecies you can count on

How do we respond to the many prophecies soon to be raining down as the year comes to an end and 2011 begins? The Bible is rich in prophecies and there are still many verses still considered to have prophetic interpretations ….some perhaps yet to be fully understood for their prophetic depth.

There will be many predictions as usual as we enter the year 2011 – some based on scientific analysis – extrapolations based on trends and permutations of what is likely to be.  Some will portray God as irrelevant enshrining human understanding and advanced knowledge.  Others will proclaim “Thus saith the Lord” when God has not said so – claiming to a spiritual prophetic foreseeing of good and perhaps woes. … while some will explore astrology and realms the Bible has warned never to go near. We cannot throw prophecies away for the Bible is a book of prophets and many prophecies and we are taught to believe in true prophecies to prosper – especially in periods of trials… Chronicles 20:20 “… Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. “ The widow of Zarepath believed in Elijah and greatly prospered.( I Kings 17)

From Deuteronomy 13:1-5 we observe of some useful pointers concerning prophecies and predictions.

Deuteronomy [13:1]  If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, [2]  And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; [3]  Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. [4]  Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. [5]  And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.

1. Some prophecies, signs and wonders, even though they come to pass, can be evil and dangerous in that they do not bring us closer to serving God and loving Him – instead they draw deeper into idolatry – sometimes in post-modernist disguises e.g. astrology.

2. Far more value must always be put to walking after the Lord, fearing Him and keeping His commandments, getting ready and expecting His return … for it will be surely be well if we hearken to these.

3. We have a responsibility to personally know God and reject and thrust out any voice turning us away from Him.

Indeed the proven predictions in the word of God attest to its infallibility…Christ being the Prophet the scriptures predicted would come who we must all hearken to or end damned. The Bible warns very strongly against false prophecies.

Deuteronomy 18[18]  I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. [19]  And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. [20]  But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

A.W. Tozer writing on the dearth of true prophets…

The prophets and reformers of the past were men of few but mighty convictions.  Their very narrowness secured high compression and gave added power to their lives.  Hesitation and indecision mark too many religious leaders of our day.  This results directly from lack of conviction.  These prophets have seen so many (carnal) visions they are unable to tell which one is from God.  They hear so many voices they are never able to say with certainty, “Thus saith the Lord.”

While some will appear to be harmless predictions, the best prophecies will make you love and trust God more – hating what He hates… causing you to spend more time in His presence … worshipping , honouring and thanking Him. The very best prophecies will be the comforting words of Christ to you. Be watchful for we are in the end-times and deception will be rife.

God bless you.

Bode Ososami released his 3rd book (now available) in December – The Majesty of God. This book delves into the glory of God and takes a glimpse into the majestic throne room to reveal a greatness that is often misrepresented due to limitation of words to describe the indescribable or completely obscured by deliberate attempts to introduce God as the old comical wise man high up somewhere – weary, exhausted and increasingly outwitted by the modern mind.
