“All of the Saints will meet on those Golden Streets. God will have His dream…His will will be complete.” – Michael Shamblin – lyrics from his song – “Golden Streets”
Golden Streets – (click to watch the music video)…the Pearl of Great Value…These themes accented what was yet another glorious Wedding Celebration in the Remnant Fellowship last weekend. It is amazing to watch what GOD accomplishes when His people work together selflessly…in one Spirit and with one purpose. What may look impossible in a short period of time not only becomes more than possible, but its beauty cannot adequately be described with just words. That is how we felt as we both watched and experienced last Sabbath’s (Saturday, August 28th 2012) Remnant Covenant Wedding Ceremony involving Shane Polivka and Margaret Langsdon. The splendor of the sights and sounds was a series of memories that will be frozen in our minds for a long, long time! Shane and Margaret have been a part of this Church since they were children, and so their relationship…and therefore their Wedding…was completely grounded upon GOD getting all of the glory. And because they kept this singular focus upon the Father’s will, they, along with everyone in attendance, were rewarded with an event that will be celebrated and remembered for years to come.
These Remnant Covenant Wedding Ceremonies always are guided by GOD’S Spirit…and they are powerfully punctuated and themed by messages of TRUTH. Gwen Shamblin provided one of those memorable messages on this glorious day, and it was rich with symbolism, Scripture, conviction, history, and a call to holiness and repentance. The messages produce the good fruit of repentance and change, and thus, people are ABLE to work together…completely, wholeheartedly, and selflessly…to craft these remarkable galas. She weaved the themes and concepts of the “Golden Streets” and the “Pearl of Great Value” throughout her presentation, and those ideas made a lasting impact with everyone. What were some of Gwen’s key points that highlighted this particular message? See them in her words. KEEP READING…
Wow! The words speak for themselves. You can see, just from reading a few paragraphs, how powerful the Truth is and how this message was for EVERYONE…not just Shane and Margaret.
The magnificence of these Weddings begins with Truth, and that carries over into the amazing sights, words, music, and celebration that continue throughout each event. Every Team of Saints who had a hand in putting this Wedding together was highly blessed, and ALL of it came together to form a seamless display of GOD’S brilliance throughout the Church Building and Grounds. Look at the blessings…as shared by several of the Saints who had hands-on involvement in these areas.
If you missed the August 18th 2012 Assembly and Covenant Wedding Ceremony, please keep checking this website, along with our Weigh Down Ministries Facebook Group Page, for announcements about future opportunities to view this event. We thank and praise GOD that He is giving us a taste of what it is to walk along His “Golden Streets,” and we look forward to a lifetime full of honoring and celebrating this opportunity to be in a COVENANT with HIM! This was this Church’s 70th Covenant Wedding Ceremony in just 10 years. Praise GOD for His Covenant offering of love to us…and for our ability to wholeheartedly love and obey Him in humble response!
