B) Betrothal (Kiddushin or Erusin: Sanctification or dedication)

C) Marriage (Nissuin: The couple start their life together)


A) Commitment (Shiddukhin)

  • Shiddukhin is when the groom would give the bridal money or valuables such as a ring. A cup of wine was customarily shared to seal their vows.
  • From here the couple entered into the betrothal period, which typically would last for about a year.
  • They were considered married but they did not live together or consummate their relationship.
  • When we accept the Lord Jesus and commit our lives to Him, we have entered this covenantal relationship with Jesus.
  • Hebrews 9:15 And for this reason He (Jesus) is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.


B) Betrothal (Kiddushin or Erusin: Sanctification or dedication)

  • At this betrothal period, the bride will get herself ready by preparing her wedding garments, lamps, etc. The groom will go away to prepare a place for his bride.
  • John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

  • Judgment Seat (Bema – Court or Tribunal) of Christ.
  • 2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
  • Illustration – A man built himself a beautiful house and after furnishing it, he moved in to enjoy this beautiful house he built. One day, however, he smelled smoke later found out that his house was on fire. He managed to dash out of his house saving his life, but his new house was burnt to the ground. On one hand, he is happy that he managed to preserve his own life, but on the other hand, he was very sad to see his new house is burnt down.
  • Then coming of the bridegroom and the bride that has made herself ready will be lifted up (A Jewish wedding tradition is called nissuin).
  • From here, the bride and groom would enter the huppah (a canopy under which the bride and groom stand during a Jewish wedding ceremony) to recite a blessing over the wine which is a symbol of joy, and then finalize their vows.
  • Finally, the bride and groom would consummate their marriage and live together as husband and wife, fully partaking of all the duties and privileges of the covenant of marriage.


C) Marriage (Nissuin: The couple start their life together)

  • Revelation 19:9 Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”
  • Today we are blessed to know that we will celebrate the marriage supper of the Lamb as we continue to be prepared and ready for His return.
  • Revelation 21:1-2 1Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also, there was no more sea. 2Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

As Christ return is going to be so sudden, there will be no chance or tie for those who refused to repent and to turn to Him, so let’s live a righteous and holy life.
