I just completed reading through the Bible in six months with Alexander Scourby this morning. What a wonderful experience it was and now will start all over tomorrow. Even my wonderful 84 year old mother is doing the same. That thrills me!
I have a question that I never thought of before, nor read or heard preached about.
In Matthew 26:26-32, we have the Lord’s Supper. Verse 29 says, “…I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” So, that would be following the seven year tribulation period.
In Revelation 19:7-9, we have the marriage supper of the Lamb. We know that takes place in heaven for believers during the seven year tribulation period.
What really is the difference? Will there be no drinking at the marriage supper of the Lamb? I need better clarity. Can you enlighten me on these passages?

Answer: When the Rapture takes place, we read, “And so shall we ever be with the Lord.” When the Lord is in heaven, we’ll be there; when He is on earth ruling the nations with a rod of iron, we’ll be there. As to our diet, little is revealed in Scripture, so we must leave it to the wonderful mystery described in 1 Corinthians 2:9: “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” Yet, the next verse indicates we can grasp it spiritually, but while on earth, it will remain indescribable. Indeed, the best is yet to come for those who have placed their lives in the care of the High Priest, Jesus Christ our Lord.
