The Wedding Entrance Dance!

Humbled for Service
Psalm 43: 13  Blessed be the Lord God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
The morning of the 12th August 2020, the Lord blessed me with a beautiful but short dream. Too short, not lasting more than a minute. The dream was totally muted. It was completely silent. I did not hear any sound. But on the contrary it was very colorful and vibrant.
The dream is thus:
As I observed, I saw a group of men. 5 of them. They were dressed in wedding attire. African wedding attire. Very attractive cloths with beautiful golden patterns at the front of the shirts. But the majority part of the shirts remained white. They were all dressed the same way.
I only got to see the man at the front. Because he was very short, like 5 feet tall. The other 4 men towered behind him and I could not see their heads. Only up to their necks and shoulders did I see. And they were arranged as though it was a photo shoot. The way photo sessions are taken during weddings. With the right hand tucked behind the man at the front. Such that I only got to see part of the chests and the left arms of the men. But their right arms were hidden from me, except the very first short man who wholly stood in front of me.
One of the things about this dream is that the Lord made my eyes focus on the beautiful white African shirts, and the beautiful golden embroideries at the front. The other thing the Lord made me do, was that He wanted me to note that they were doing a dance. A jig. They were rhythmically moving together in one accord, in a dance. They were not stationery, but moving forward while doing a jig.
The dream did not last for long. It ended. But in the morning I could clearly remember it as I do remember it now. A lovely dream. It nagged me the whole of Wednesday 12th August 2020, because I just did not know what I had seen. But by the end of the day, I realized that this was a wedding procession.
Exodus 28: 15-30
 “You shall make the breastplate of judgment. Artistically woven according to the workmanship of the ephod you shall make it: of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen, you shall make it.  It shall be doubled into a square: a span shall be its length, and a span shall be its width.  And you shall put settings of stones in it, four rows of stones: The first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and an emerald; this shall be the first row;  the second row shall be a turquoise, a sapphire, and a diamond;  the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;  and the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper. They shall be set in gold settings.  And the stones shall have the names of the sons of Israel, twelve according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, each one with its own name; they shall be according to the twelve tribes.
 “You shall make chains for the breastplate at the end, like braided cords of pure gold. 23And you shall make two rings of gold for the breastplate, and put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.  Then you shall put the two braided chains of gold in the two rings which are on the ends of the breastplate;  and the other two ends of the two braided chains you shall fasten to the two settings, and put them on the shoulder straps of the ephod in the front.
 “You shall make two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, on the edge of it, which is on the inner side of the ephod.  And two other rings of gold you shall make, and put them on the two shoulder straps, underneath the ephod toward its front, right at the seam above the intricately woven band of the ephod.  They shall bind the breastplate by means of its rings to the rings of the ephod, using a blue cord, so that it is above the intricately woven band of the ephod, and so that the breastplate does not come loose from the ephod.
 “So Aaron shall bear the names of the sons of Israel on the breastplate of judgment over his heart, when he goes into the holy place, as a memorial before the Lord continually.  And you shall put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim, and they shall be over Aaron’s heart when he goes in before the Lord. So Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel over his heart before the Lord continually.
Jesus Comes to Zacchaeus’ House
Luke 19: 1-10
 Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.  Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.  And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.  So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way.  And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”  So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully.  But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”
 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”
 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham;  for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
The Parable of the Wedding Feast
Matthew 22: 8-14
 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.”
I hope that this dream will bring encouragement to all of us, even as we wait the deliverance of our Lord Jesus Christ and the marriage supper of the Lamb.
