Water into Wine
Jesus Christ’s first miracle in the flesh was turning water into wine. John 2:1-11 It was a foreshadowing of His first miracle at His return at the end of the age to establish His kingdom of righteousness on earth. John 2:4 The kingdom’s territory is the souls of mankind; this is what He is coming to claim by manifesting His blood, His Spirit, the wine in them. 2 Peter 1:19, Revelation 2:28, 22:16
The CRY has gone out to come to the wedding feast. Matthew 25:6 Christ is standing at the door of your soul and whoever comes and opens the door to Him; He will come in and dine with them. He will come and make His home in you for you are to be His temple; His body which His glory dwells. Revelation 3:20, John 14:23 As you dine, He will give you His blood to drink, His spirit of eternal life, His spirit of righteousness. He will turn your water, your spirit washed in the word, into wine, His spirit.
Those who open the door and dine with Him will be granted to sit on His throne with Him, a foundation of righteousness and justice, mercy and truth. Psalm 89:14-15, Revelation 3:21 His throne is your soul; for His spirit resides in you and rules from within.
If you have sought and allowed the Holy Spirit to intricately knit new garments on you, acts of righteousness, then you can enter into the wedding. Matthew 22:10-13, Revelation 3:18 These are the new wineskins, the purified pots. Luke 5:38, John 2:6 If not, you can not enter until you buy and sell with Christ leading you to lay down your life, walk a life of repentance (walking in truth and love); and hunger and thirst for His righteousness above all else. Matthew 5:6, Isaiah 49:10, Nehemiah 9:15 The new wineskin is your soul purified and sanctified by the truth. John 17:17 Those who possess new wineskins have feasted on His flesh, His truth, the bread of life and thus filled up their soul with the oil of truth. John 6:51, 53 Those with the oil of truth, which produces acts of righteousness (wedding garments), enter the wedding feast to be joined to the Bridegroom. Matthew 25:8-10
Instruction of the Mother of Jesus
At the wedding, the mother of Jesus instructed her son and the servants. John 2:5 She represents the mother of all living who birthed her son, the spirit of life, into the world. Again, the woman births her son into the world, a life giving spirit. Revelation 12:5 If you have heard the cry to come to the wedding feast, then hear her words to the servants to obey her Son who has the spirit of eternal life to partake of. Now is the time for the vessels of purified water to be turned into wine. John 6:54-56
Fill your Vessel with Living Water
John 2:7 Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim.
From Christ comes the living water, the truth. If you have bought and sold with Him the pure truth by the Holy Spirit, then this truth sanctifies you and prepares you to be united to His Spirit. It’s the water that springs up into everlasting life.
John 4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
John 4:14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
As you have sought and feasted on the bread of life; now is the time to drink of His blood. Seek to have His spirit fill and rule every aspect of your soul for this is to drink His blood. Follow His voice in whatever He leads you to do. Seek His instruction to your soul.
As you receive the life blood of Christ, the new wine; you’ll experience increasing power. Not power as the world views it and gives, but power that comes from living in truth and love. So, those who have gone through the washing of the word, purification, and sanctification thus have been growing in righteousness; as you dine with Christ you will be growing in power. It’s a power to be and do what you have longed for as a son/daughter of God. It is receiving the power and ability to walk in righteousness as you have desired. This power will implode your words and actions. Through it, you will start to see your life transform; the fulfillment of your hope. You’ll enter the sanctuary of peace and rest. His spirit of righteousness will shine brighter and brighter in you and into the world. You will be this world’s hope for the days that lay ahead. Ezekiel 14:22-23
