Jehu has penned a timely and readable reminder to restore the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Reading the Old and New Testaments with a Hebrew mindset brings much-needed clarity, especially to Bible prophecies.
Along with this is an urgent call to intentional discipling, especially in being the Bride of Christ. Jehu rightly emphasises how, in a world of increasing darkness and lawlessness, our role as salt and light is fleshed out in the excellent way of love and grace in our relationships with God, our spouses and families, and our neighbours.
Get your copy of this book, and be blessed to be a blessing! On a more personal level, our good friends Jehu and Christine have gone through much in life. In their special relationship with Abba Father, the GOOD God, they serve with a GOOD Heart, and live a GOOD Life, looking forward to the BEST of being part of the Bride of Christ at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb! Precious gems of glorious truths abound in his simple book, for you to receive and be blessed with.

Elder Jehu Chan is a very gracious gentleman, a faithful servant of God and a great partner in ministry. I have known him for over 20 years as a dependable friend, co-worker and elder, missionary partner and marketplace leader. I’m pleased to recommend this book that opens up the Jewish roots of our faith, and the critical role that Jewish culture plays in the Bible.
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb powerfully declares the love of Christ for His church. Our Lord is preparing for the greatest wedding celebration in history, where He will marry His Bride — the people of God from every generation, tongue, tribe and nation. This book reveals the biblical foundations of marriage, parenting and preparation for kingdom living, destiny and Christian witness in a lost world.
Jehu has always been a person of excellence, and this amazing book shows why. It is a must-read for every believer!

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is a fascinating book, offering insights for understanding the Bible and living life—in marriage, bringing up children and loving our neighbours. It is a book for our times, where the inclination to blame is strong while the inclination to do what we can (and what we must) is weak.
This may appear to be a little book, but it is a powerful one filled with knowledge and wisdom. Read it for a fuller understanding of the Bible, for it explains the cultural context we need to understand much of the truths of Holy Scripture, especially how it parallels the Hebrew marriage tradition. Jehu draws lessons from Genesis to Revelation, and weaves his insights into an integral whole that feeds mind, heart and spirit! It is not to be read as a bedtime story or a time-filler, but in earnest pursuit of understanding. You will not be disappointed.
Jehu exhibits a heart of love and understanding, a desire to do good and to help others grow, and a mind that is curious and persistent. He writes with clarity and imperative, and makes us think about what is truly important in life.

I have known Jehu since we were classmates in school. He has been very successful in his career in banking, but through it
all he never lost sight of his purpose in life. He is courageous in sharing the Gospel, and this book is another example of the way he shares his faith. That it will also help others in their journey through life is an added blessing.

It has been an honour and privilege for my wife and I to know Jehu and Christine Chan during the 16 years we have been serving together in the same Singapore church. One only has to be in their company for a short time before recognising their unwavering love for one another and for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jehu’s book, The Marriage Supper of the Lamb, will enlighten readers to better understand and appreciate God’s original intention as shown in Scripture, especially through the marriage covenant—which Jehu has beautifully brought to life!
I believe that this book will inspire readers to appreciate the beauty of Scripture and the sanctity of marriage, and dedicate themselves to preparing for the return of Jesus Christ, our soon and coming King.

I first met Jehu Chan in 2005, and immediately knew him to be a man with an infectious joy and love for Jesus and His church. He carries this warmth and zeal into all the areas of his life, most of all into his family and the church.
His soaring love for Jesus and zeal for the kingdom of God marks his life, and shines through this book on the second coming of Jesus. It is full of precious insights, especially those pertaining to the Jewish background of the book of Revelation. His insights into the significance of the Jewish wedding, and its parallels with the marriage between Jesus and His church, are particularly heart-warming and faith-building. Jehu also points us to look afresh at the Jewish feasts as keys to understanding the Lord’s return.
Jehu’s book reaches its climax with a challenge to the reader— to respond radically by becoming a true disciple, one who loves mercy and reaches out with compassion to a dying world. Reading this book cannot fail to stir believers with a deeper love for Jesus and a passion to share this love, and so make them ready for the return of the Bridegroom!

Jehu Chan is very passionate about mentoring and discipling. He is a spiritual father to my daughter Hui Min, and has given her so much guidance on her life, living and livelihood that the ceiling he has reached is the floor that her growth begins from! He has a great love of teaching the Word of God, especially the book of Revelation.
When Jehu and I were co-leaders of FGB Raffles Place Gate, I learnt much from him on understanding the Bible better through knowing Jewish tradition and how the Bible’s audience would have read it.
For instance, the traditional Jewish marriage can give us a better and clearer understanding on the life and words of Jesus. I highly recommend that every serious Christian read his book. You’ll know the Bible so much better, and understand how we are to prepare for the glorious marriage supper of the Lamb!

I first met Jehu as the Elder/Pastor in City Missions Church and was very fortunate to be mentored by him in FGB Gatekeepers. Jehu is a man with a deep love for God Abba Father, Our Lord Jesus Christ, His Holy Spirit and the word of God. He is a man who seeks the truth and tells the truth as it is. I benefited tremendously from his Mentorship.
Jehu loves people and is very passionate about mentoring and discipling others. Besides his own children, he has birthed many spiritual children, passing on God’s DNA. I am impressed by his deep knowledge of Hebrew Culture, mind-set and weddings and its implications in understanding the Bible.
Thanks to Jehu’s love for scripture and people, it has created the desire in him to bless everyone, giving us hope to develop ourselves to be the Bride of Christ, ready and longing for His return to bring us to the Grand Wedding and living out the Great Commission of “Making Disciples of all Nations”. This book is a must read for everyone.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the culmination of the twin thrusts of the purposes of God the Father: first, His redemptive purpose through Christ’s death on the cross, and His resurrection; and second, the crowning glory of man, the zenith of his creation—the only creatures counted worthy to be His Bride. Then the phrase “God in us and we in Him” will truly become a tangible reality. God wants to find His ultimate pleasure, not His regret, with man His creation.
In this book, Jehu wonderfully paints us a picture of God’s purposes for the creation of man and woman, and His masterful work to bring fallen humanity back from the corruption of sin to become His Bride. Some of God’s ways are subtle, while others thunder so loudly that everyone will hear them. There are none so deaf as those who will not hear.
Jehu Chan takes a complex subject and makes it simple, revealing the majesty and simplicity of God’s purpose—a sign of His rhema revelation at work today! May the Father’s continued revelation to us show us the way to become His perfect, glorious and everlasting Bride of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Those who come to know Heng Toong or Jehu, as he is more popularly known today, will quickly find him Godly, a true family man, loving and resolute to keep strong values and faithful to the Word.
In this first venture as an author after retiring from full time working life, Jehu has dug from the well of his experiences, from deep studying of scriptures and through attending many seminars.
In The Marriage Supper Of The Lamb, we feast on his exposition, his insight and gifting as he examines truths on culture, relationships, civilisation and historical perspectives, and we come away with an awe of God’s time-table.
