THE BEGINNING OF SIGNS
There was no more wine at the wedding! When Yeshua was asked by His mother Miriam, the LORD remarked, “My hour has not yet come” (John 2:4).
There was a bit of time in between His saying that remark and when Yeshua agreed to perform that first sign of His glory. Just what happened in between? How many seconds or minutes went by? Because Yeshua later proclaimed …
“…. ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, BUT WHAT HE SEES THE FATHER DO; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.’” (John 5:19)
So in between, the Father Himself fashioned this miracle of changing water into wine. Yeshua “saw” it in the Spirit.
Maybe Miriam also foresaw. Maybe she knew that the timing was just about right, but Yeshua knew THE MINUTE it was right!
Yet, I can almost see Miriam with a smile on her face, saying to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” (John 2:5) Miriam may have had an inkling. Maybe she woke up sensing that this was going to be a special day for her Son! Maybe she felt the Holy Spirit leading her to speak and make known the request. Maybe Miriam was expecting a miracle!
Yeshua loved His mom, but to get outside of His perfect timing, even down to a minute, would possibly throw everything off in the Spirit realm. It was when He saw the Father doing this, that He went along with this first public miracle!
THE THIRD DAY
Also, this was the “third day” (John 2:1). The “Third Day” prophetically speaks to the future when faithful Christians will be joined in marriage to the Lamb of God – seven days of feasting and wine!
“After two days He will revive us; On the THIRD DAY He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight.” (Hosea 6:2)
This is when this happens:
1COR 15:51 “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
That will be for Christians, the dawn of the THIRD DAY! The LORD, after the wedding, is reigning over the earth! Yes, I know the LORD reigns already and always has. Yet, His Kingdom Age will be on earth! “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” The LORD will come on a white horse!
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. (REV 19:11)
WAITING ON THE LORD
“But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
Sometimes Christians need to wait for the right minute, just as Yeshua did in changing the water to wine. God has a plan, and we must wait for the right moment. God has a timetable!
Sometimes that moment is longer than a minute but when the Holy Spirit is leading, we must be instant in prayer, instant in preaching, instant to do good works. If we wait, the moment is lost.
“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” (2 Tim 4:2)
That “in season” means when it is convenient for you. “Out of season” means it is not too convenient! Sometimes we don’t feel like being a blessing to others, but if we are inconvenienced, there is, in this obedience, a special blessing for us!
HIS PROMISES ARE TRUE!
When I was a young in the LORD and learning about His holy ways, a wiser person told me that I was like a horse waiting to get out of the gate, to run the race. I couldn’t wait to get out! Now, I’m out of the gate, but some of my personal promises that God made to me, I’m still waiting on. However, the LORD is faithful!
“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” (Phil 1:6)
What the LORD has promised to me is true. Promises from the LORD may take awhile. Think of Abraham & Sarah. They waited on the LORD in faith for their son Isaac.
“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (2Cor 1:20)
Yes, we, those who are believers in Christ, are “children of the promise”!
“Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.” (Gal 4:28)
See these lyrics about the promises of God: “YOU are TRUE”.
