The supernatural, Spirit realm is never silent nor dull. While preparing for our annual Christ in the Passover Seder Friday evening, April 15, 2022, the Spirit realm opened, and I saw a seamstress working on white satin fabric. I heard the Lord say, “I’m making an adjustment to your spiritual wedding garment.”
Also, I knew by prophetic revelation this statement pertained to all Christian believers in Jesus Christ and the upcoming Wedding Feast.
“And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, ‘See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
“But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:1-14)
On January 16 of this year, my weekly prophetic blog post addressed the subject of the future Wedding Feast spoken of in Matthew 22:1-14 and the Parable of the Great Supper in Luke 14:15-24.
I would encourage you to take the time to read my blog, and the accompanying scriptures, and ponder them in light of your all-important future. https://sheilaeismann.com/the-most-important-wedding/
The Reason For The Spiritual Adjustment To Your Wedding Garment.
My curiosity was definitely piqued as I sought the Lord regarding what I’d heard Him say. His answer was not what I expected.
The reason for the adjustment was due to spiritual growth as a result of persevering through trials and tribulations.
In this recent prophetic vision and word, the specific area I saw being adjusted and expanded was the front bodice concentrating on the waist.
Prophetic symbols for waist are your spirit and truth. Obviously, there are spiritual truths and natural ones, with the most important being of the spiritual nature because, in the final wring-out, those are the only ones that will matter.
Under inspiration from The Holy Spirit of God, the Apostle Paul penned the following as part of the armor of God in Ephesians 6:14, “Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness.”
The truth of God’s word is vital in an ever-changing, transformative society that is bent on defying it.
Fabric is symbolized as your life or your life’s story. Would yours look a bit frayed at the moment? No worries! A call to Jesus will send heavenly help on its way.
There are many heavenly storehouses. The “Seamstress Storehouse” has no lack of fabric or sewing supplies.
Guarantees & Choices.
As the Apostle Paul and Barnabas continued on their missionary journey and after having had stones thrown at them and being dragged out of the city, they exhorted the disciples with these words, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22)
Timothy was sent to the church at Thessalonica to help establish them along with the Apostle Paul’s warning that they were appointed to affliction and would suffer tribulation. (1 Thessalonians 3:1-4)
The following poignant words penned while under house arrest in Rome still apply to each believer in Jesus Christ today,
“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.” (Philippians 3:7-11)
James, Jesus’s half-brother, provides another look through a different spiritual lens.
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” (James 1:2-4)
Have you or are you counting it all joy concerning your trials? What is the testing of your faith producing?
Tests and trials can be tremendous times of learning in God’s classroom.
A Savvy Seamstress Works With Satin.
Have any of you in blogger-reader land ever sewed a garment or completed clothing alterations? I learned a great deal about satin fabrics when I sewed for weddings years ago. One must be careful to use pins, needles, and certain sewing notions that are fashioned exclusively for satin. The old saying, “A stitch in time saves nine” definitely applies to this situation. Regarding the plethora of types of fabrics on the market, satin is not as “forgiving” as some others such as cotton or cotton blends.
Even if you only know how to spell the word sew and have never taken a stitch in real life, thankfully, Jesus, our Bridegroom, will have our white robes (Revelation 7:9) ready for us when He calls us home to spend eternity with Him.
The white color and nature of the robes are because we will have been washed in the blood of the Lamb by which all of our sins are forgiven. (Revelation 7:14). Also, we have imputed righteousness granted to us because of our faith in Jesus Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith. (Philippians 3:9)
Prophetic Insights For Daily Living.
#1. Reflecting upon your own life, when have you experienced the truest spiritual growth? Is it when life has been just sailing along without any interruptions, issues, challenges, or just the opposite of these?
#2. With fabric representing your life’s story, how will it end? Will you be in attendance at the Wedding Feast with Jesus?
#3. In today’s society, more emphasis is usually placed on the bride’s attire for the wedding day as opposed to that of the groom. Viewing wedding photos of western culture, it appears that men wearing white suits on their special day is less prevalent than those of darker shades.
Both men and women will have white spiritual garments at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.
#4. Recently, we were super blessed by a brief visit from a Christian evangelist from another continent. A portion of our conversation stemmed from the 1st chapter of the book of Galatians where the Apostle Paul reminded believers that there’s only one true gospel. Today, there are many denominations, but there’s still only one gospel.
“But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 1:11-12) (Emphasis mine.)
Typically, the gospel preached in the cults originates with a man and his version thereof. The sad reality is those in the cults are going to find themselves in outer darkness where there’s weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 22:11-13) as they’ve fashioned their own wedding garments and scheduled their own wedding feasts. May we be ever mindful to continue to pray for them that they would come to the saving knowledge of the truth before it’s too late. (1Timothy 2:4) The false, works-based salvation(s) of the world do not come through the cross of the true Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
As you contemplate what your beautiful, spiritual wedding garment is going to look like, may your trials and tribulations lead you to a much closer relationship with God and become a launching pad for fantastic blessings in your life that you can share with others.
