What is the Global Bridegroom Fast and Why You May Want to Fast

Maybe you have fasted before and the mere mention of the word brings to your mind all types of horrible thoughts and memories - let me challenge you - to try this fast and you will never be the same! My entire paradigm has shifted when it comes to fasting.

Jesus first introduces this concept to his disciples in Matthew 9:14-17 right after He has a discourse with the religious leaders about leading the sinners to repentance. They were questioning why His disciples didn't fast.

Matthew 9:15 And Jesus replied to them, Can the wedding guests mourn while the bridegroom is still with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.

He is explaining to His disciples for the first time that they will fast once He is gone.

In the next verse Jesus explains to His disciples how you can not pour new wine into an old wineskin, otherwise the wineskin will burst and be unable to carry anything.

Matthew 14:16-17 And no one puts a piece of cloth that has not been shrunk on an old garment, for such a patch tears away from the garment and a worse rent (tear) is made. Neither is new wine put in old wineskins; for if it is, the skins burst and are torn in pieces, and the wine is spilled and the skins are ruined. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved.

We call this the Bridegroom Fast  and it is for believers to join all around the globe together to connect to The Bridegroom Jesus to receive more of Him. I don't know about you but I must have more of Him!

I am motivated to enter into this fast because I have an ache inside for more of Him, what Song of Solomon 5:8 describes as lovesick or sick with love. I am sick with Love for more of Him, my longing for Him propels me to reach for more of Him. I want to understand this Bridegroom Jesus who has such a tender heart and passionate zeal for me even in my weakness. What kind of Love is this?

If you feel a pain, an ache inside for more of Him know this...you are beginning to feel lovesick! If you want to know Him as this Bridegroom God, who is tender and loves our weakness, who is transcendent in His Beauty and has a burning affection for us...please consider joining us on this fast!
