Did you know that Yeshua’s first miracle was a Melchizedek sign? His turning water into the finest wine is connected to the priest of the Most High God – Melchizedek King of Salem – bringing bread and wine to Abram (Genesis 14:18; John 2:1-11).
At Cana, it was the Third Day, the day for ancient Hebrew weddings (John 2:1). It foreshadows a Kingdom Reality in our day with bridal overtones: “And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, ‘Allelia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the Marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!’ And he said to me, ‘These are the true sayings of God’ ” (Revelation 19 6-10 NKJV).
Remember that both Jesus (i.e. Yeshua) and His disciples are called to the wedding feast (John 2:2). That means you, if you fit the bill: “By this all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one to another” (John 13:35). A marriage is all about love, and the Bride and Groom becoming one. Love all. Serve all. The call is simple, yet encompasses all.
Notice that the servants at the marriage were told to obey whatever Yeshua told them to do before He turned the water into wine (John 2:5). This is connected to the Bride of Christ being clothed with the righteous acts (i.e. deeds) of the saints (Revelation 19:8). Appropriate wedding garments are required for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Matthew 22:11-14). The things we do according to the dictates of His heart flows like living water from the midst of who we really are. As this Water of Life flows from our midst, its essence transforms into the best saved for last golden new wine, which genu-wine believers have to offer (John 2:10).
Give em heaven!!!
