“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.” Rev. 19:7
Noah prepared an ark because he was expecting rain. Joseph stored grain because he was expecting a famine. Joshua and the army of Israel shouted because they expected the walls to fall down. David took five smooth stones because he was expecting to defeat a giant. Christians will make themselves ready, if they are expecting the Lord to return to take them to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
