RE: Shem Tov or Shem Tob Matthew--The Hebrew Matthew
the revelation verse you presented could well be related to the end-times like you said.
I am reminded of another passage ,also in Matthew with a similiar theme
Mat 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, who made a marriage for his son,
Mat 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Mat 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them who are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
Mat 22:5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
Mat 22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and treated them shamefully, and slew them.
Mat 22:7 But when the king heard thereof, he was angry: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
Mat 22:8 Then said he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they who were bidden were not worthy.
Mat 22:9 Go you therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid to the marriage.
Mat 22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
Mat 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment:
Mat 22:12 And he said unto him, Friend, how came you in here not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Mat 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.[color=#4682B4]
Luk 14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man gave a great supper, and bade many:
Luk 14:17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
Luk 14:18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it: I pray you have me excused.
Luk 14:19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them: I pray you have me excused.
Luk 14:20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
Luk 14:21 So that servant came, and showed his lord these things. Then the Master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor, and the maimed, and the lame, and the blind.
Luk 14:22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as you have commanded, and yet there is room.
Luk 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
Luk 14:24 For I say unto you, That none of those men who were bidden shall taste of my supper.
