Have you been invited to the Heavenly Wedding Banquet?

Like any wedding that takes place on this earth... if you haven't heard about it then chances are you haven't been invited. The bible compares Kingdom of Heaven to a wedding banquet (Matthew 22), then that being the case who wouldn't want to be invited.

Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
Revelations 19:7

The wedding of the Lamb? Meaning the wedding of Christ has come and his bride is ready! Us refers to us... it says we should be happy and give him glory. This is written in the book of Revelations then this will occur in the last days.

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
Revelations 22:17

Here the Spirit (Father God) and the bride? are calling for us to come receive the gift of water of life = Eternal life. The bride of my father is my mother. Then shouldn't the bride of Father Chris be our Mother as well... the bible should testify this.

“Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” -Revelations 21:9

The Apostle John is testifying here that the Lamb (Christ) has a Bride (Wife). But who is she?

And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God
Revelations 21:10

The Bride of Christ= Wife= Holy City Jerusalem

But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
Galatians 4:26

Then without knowing the bride how can we be invited to the wedding. How much more important is it to know this bride = our spiritual Mother New Jerusalem.
