 But the marriage scene of the Lamb is only intimated, and not described here. The purpose of the Revelation is not to show us the Father's house, nor its inner scenes. God is never even called our Father in this book, because it opens out, not the intimacy of His love to us, but rather the righteous ways of God — the establishment of the kingdom and the end, when He is all in all. True, there must be the stern unsparing judgment of all this evil, and this we have had. But when God's part comes, and the full blessedness of the church, there is but an announcement of it — the bride has made herself ready. It is left there comparatively hidden. (Lectures on Revelation 19 by W. Kelly)
 I presume that those who are here said to be invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb answer somewhat to the friends of the Bridegroom. (Lectures on Revelation 19 by W. Kelly)
 All these therefore who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb are, like John, friends of the Bridegroom, and, while not in the intimacy of the bride, will have their own special portion and will rejoice greatly because of the Bridegroom’s voice. (Lectures on Revelation 19 by W. Kelly)
