The ancient Jewish wedding is a custom that every believer should study and understand. Why? Because Yah Himself instituted and followed the steps of a Jewish bridegroom when taking His own bride. There are many truths and treasures that have been hidden and long forgotten simply because believers do not see Yahoshua in His original Jewish context. It is understood that God is calling the Bride of Messiah back to their Jewish roots, back to a love for the Ketubah (The Torah and Commandments) and back to a recognition and love for the Bridegroom (Yahoshua). Furthermore, Elohim has made a way for all who desire to be grafted into the Bride to be a part of the Bride through the selfless gift of the Bridegroom!
God is following this same 12 Step Wedding Plan that He gave Israel as a model… (See outline below and more explaination in the video above)
Steps 1-4 of the Betrothal Process: FULFILLED BEFORE THE BRIDE MET THE BRIDEGROOM MESSIAH
Step 1: Selection of the Bride – Israel (Gen 17:7;Deut 7:7-9)
Step 2: Price of the Bride – The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (Isa. 53:4,5; 1 Cor. 7:23; I Peter 1:18-19)
Step 3: Betrothal/Ketubah – Torah (Ex. 24:12; Jer. 31:31-34)
Step 4: The Bride’s Consent – Bride Accepts and says, “I do” (Gen. 24:57; Ex. 24:7)
Steps 5-8 of the Betrothal Process: FULFILLED IN MESSIAH’S FIRST COMING
Step 5: The Cup of the Covenant – The Blood at Passover (Lk 22:20)
Step 6: Gifts for the Bride – The Ruach HaKodesh at Shava’ot (Jn. 14:17)
Step 7: Cleansing of the Bride – The Mikvah – Baptism (Mark 1:4,5; 1 Corinthians 10:1-2)
Step 8: Departure of the Groom – Ascension (Joh 14:2-3, John 16:16, Acts 1:10-12)
Step 9-12 of the Marital Process: FULFILLED FROM NOW THROUGH MESSIAH’S SECOND COMING
Step 9: The Consecrated Bride waits for the Bridegroom – Sanctification: ( Isa. 61:10; 62:5 ,11; 2Co 11:2; Pro 7:2 -3; Jer 2:32; Lev 26:2-3,9; Rev 14:12 – The Jewish bride was set apart, consecrated, separated unto her bridegroom — the one who purchased her. So, while waiting for his return, she was to stay faithful)
Step 10: The Bridegroom comes for the Bride – (Messiah’s return – Matt 25:6; Isaiah 26:19-21)
Step 11: The Marriage under the Huppah Covering – (Zeph. 2:3; Song of Solomon 1:4; Deu 32:43; Psa 31:20; Joel 2:15-16)
Step 12: The Final Step — The Marriage Supper reflects THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB IN HEAVEN
(Traditionally following the marriage in the huppah or bridal chamber, the bride and bridegroom join their guests at for a joyous marriage feast!)
Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
The bride rejoices …I am my Beloved’s, and my Beloved is mine… He has brought me to the banqueting house, and His banner over me is love!(Song 2:4, 6.3a)
