The Hero of Heaven

Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready. – Revelation 19:7

We take into reckoning whenever we do honor to a prince all that he may have done for the nation over which he rules. What, then, has Jesus done for us? Rather let me say what has He not done? Upon His shoulders were laid our sins; He carried them into the wilderness, and they are gone for ever. Against Him came forth our foes; He met them in shock of battle, and where are they now? They are cast into the depths of the sea. As for death itself, that last of foes, He has virtually overcome it, and ere long the weakest of us through Him shall say “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” He is the hero of heaven. He returned to His Father’s throne amidst the acclamations of the universe. Do we not, for whom He fought, for whom He conquered, do we not desire to honor Him? I feel I speak with bated breath upon a theme where all our powers of speech should be let loose. Bring forth the royal diadem and crown Him! Is it not the universal verdict of all who know Him? Ought it not to be the cry of all the sons of men? East and west, and north and south, ought they not to ring the joy bells and hang out streamers on His marriage day, for joy of Him? Is the King’s Son to be married, is there a festival in His honor? O then let Him be great, let Him be glorious! Long live the King! Let the maidens go forth with their timbrels, and the sons of music make sweet melody-yea, let all creatures that have breath break forth with His praises. “Hosanna! Hosanna! Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon
