  3. The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

The Mysterious Leader of the Administration of Mordecai:

לֵב טָהֹור בְּרָא־לִי אֱלֹהִים וְרוּחַ נָכֹון חַדֵּשׁ בְּקִרְבִּֽי׃ אַל־תַּשְׁלִיכֵנִי מִלְּפָנֶיךָ וְרוּחַ קָדְשְׁךָ אַל־תִּקַּח מִמֶּֽנִּי׃ הָשִׁיבָה לִּי שְׂשֹׂון יִשְׁעֶךָ וְרוּחַ נְדִיבָה תִסְמְכֵֽנִי׃

Create in me a clean heart, O Elohim,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your Presence
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the Joy of Your Salvation
And sustain me with a willing spirit.

Every one of us need to meet with the Servant (Eli’ezer-אֱלִיעֶזֶר) of father Abraham at the well of Abba Avinu’s Grace. This special Servant of father Abraham is a prophetic type of the Divine Servant of us All. The Servant of father Abraham is a type of the Divine Helper. The narrative of Eli’ezer is the revelation of the Ruach Ha-Kodesh (רוח הקודש) in disguise. Our Helper is not limited by space, matter, energy or time. He is the Spirit of Grace (Ruach Ha-Chesed) and Truth (emet). Nothing is impossible for the Eternal Spirit (Ruach Olam). We need His help. We should seek His Help. We must accept His help. So, let us seek the Holy Spirit of Promise (Ruach HaKodesh ka’sher dibber) who restores to us the “Joy of our Salvation and sustains in us a willing spirit.” So what is it that we need to do in response to so great a salvation?

First, pray that we might possess an open mind and a teachable heart. Let us study daily His Torah through the lens of the ‘large eyes’ of our faith in the Messiah whom the Holy One sent to deliver us from sin and death.

Second, stop seeking the Holy One of Israel through a continued slavery to the Law (the First Wedding Contract). No one has or ever will be declared righteous according to the law other than the Mashiach alone. Moses gave the Law. Even he could not obey it and be counted righteous by his own obedience.

Third, remember that another Deliverer was sent to us by Adonai (our Father and our God) because another Deliverer was required. Only the Mashiach fulfilled the Law and brought to us the Second Wedding Contract, the Covenant of Adonai’s Grace (unilateral loving-kindness). Messiah fulfilled the Law.

Fourth, remember Moses is counted righteous according to the works of Israel’s greater son, the Messiah. Now the children of Jacob are no longer required to work another minute in the bondage of the law that is mediated by the angels (including the evil one, symbolized in the narrative role of wicked Laban). We are free now to seek the Holy One through His Second Wedding Contract that is solely based on the flawless virtue and unlimited power of His Love.

Fifth, understand this:

Modern Israel is called to a higher calling than all of the previous generations of Israel.

The Bridegroom Adonai patiently awaits the administration of the Second Wedding Contract to finally bring about the birth of His final, most cherished son. The final son, Benyamin (בִּנְיָמִין) is the only son that was not born in captivity under the bondage of a contract of slavery to Laban. The most cherished son is born in an Israel that is the fulfillment of All of the Promises of Adonai. The final son (the Son of My Right-hand, בִּנְיָמִין) is the only son of all of the Generations of Israel who is born out of the (most cherished) union of the Second Wedding Contract of Rachel.

It is this Generation of Israel that will usher in the  time of the promised Golden Age of Israel and of the Commonwealth of Israel.

Sixth, the Bridegroom (Adonai Eloheinu) now awaits the administration of His Second Wedding Contract for which His Spirit has so long labored to bring to fruition. After this new union comes about then will the union of God and Israel bring about the birth of His final, most cherished son (i.e. the final generation of Israel that is born in the messianic age). At the first the original name given to Benyamin by his mother Rachel was Benoni, “Son of My Sorrow.”

Seventh, therefore on the day that Israel meets face to face with the Beloved Son (Messiah ben Yosef) we have rejected, He (the Messiah ben Yosef ben David) will declare Himself to be our brother and Deliverer (not our accuser and persecutor). Then all Israel will become the last and greatest of all the generations of Israel, the Generation of Benyamin, the “Son of My Right Hand!”

All the promises to our fathers will be fully realized when modern Israel accepts the Second Wedding Contract of Rachel (רָחֵל).

Eighth, when Israel accepts the Messiah of Adonai (M’shico) our father Ya’akov’s Weariness will finally come to an end. Then the Administration of Rachel’s *Second Son will begin. Thereafter, no longer will it be said of us that we are ‘Son of My Sorrow.’ For in this the final and greatest Generation of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s children it will be said, we are the last and most precious child, for we are the “Son of His Right Hand” (The Generation of the Golden Age of Israel).

*Benyamin. Therefore, as well, the Administration of Mordecai ben Benyamin (etc.).

The Spirit and the Bride:

The Administration of Mordecai represents the messianic Administration of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit’s job is to restore fellowship with Adonai. It is written, “You have received the Spirit of Adoption.” Mordecai adopted Hadassah-Esther. The King’s reign is protected and supported by Mordecai. The Sovereign Rule of Adonai’s Grace is now in the hands of the Humble Man, the Messiah Yeshua, whose reign is presently being established by the Holy Spirit. Esther’s Feast (2:18) is resourced by Ahasuerus (the venerable father, ruler of the world) who is the king. This feast is prepared for all the king’s princes and servants. Coupled with the Purim feast (in chapter nine) these feasts together are a vivid picture of Adonai’s Millennial Jubilee. This future Jubilee will occur beginning on Yom Kippur. The Millennial Jubilee is a time where all the citizenry of Adonai’s Kingdom (Jew and Gentile) will be released from the burden of their debts and taxes (physical and spiritual bondage); and where all (Jew and Gentile) will live safely under the blessing of the great generosity and protection of Adonai’s Grace. Generosity will typify the millennial kingdom where all will unselfishly share in common the good things given to us all by our Creator.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb:

Mordecai is a picture of Adonai’s future messianic administration (rule) on earth. The last verse of the Book of Esther, verse 10:3, states:

כִּי מָרְדֳּכַי הַיְּהוּדִי מִשְׁנֶה לַמֶּלֶךְ אֲחַשְׁוֵרֹושׁ וְגָדֹול לַיְּהוּדִים וְרָצוּי לְרֹב אֶחָיו דֹּרֵשׁ טֹוב לְעַמֹּו וְדֹבֵר שָׁלֹום לְכָל־זַרְעֹֽו׃

“For Mordecai the Jew (was) next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth (good, tov-טֹוב) of his people, and speaking shalom (שָׁלוֹם) to all his seed (לְכָל־זַרְעֹֽו).”

Here Mordecai is a prophetic type of the Administration of the Messiah Yeshua and the Jewish and Gentile saints (kedoshim, holy ones) who are peacefully ruling together over the entire world at the time of the Millennial Reign (carefully study Sukkot and you will clearly see this marvelous picture of Jew and Gentile finally living together in shalom). Second only to Adonai the Father, the Prophet-King Yeshua ben David will in the millennial age be crowned Melekh HaMelakhim and Adonei Ha-Adonim (King of kings and Lord of lords). Like our father Yosef, our Messiah Yeshua ben Yosef ben David will one day (we pray soon) be permanently reconciled to all of His brethren (all Israel). שלום, שלום
