Turning water to wine: the first miracle of Jesus Christ

(…continues from part two…)

3)            The Bible is silent on the earthly growing days of the Christ’s humanity. Jesus did not perform any miracle prior to His earthly age of thirty as Qur’an 5:110 erroneously informed. How do I know this? He told His mother off when she wanted to show Jesus off. She had kept His Messianic facticity in her heart, ergo, she knew Jesus could perform miracles, which only God is capable of. John 2:4 “Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come.” This is a gentle reproof of his mother’s interference with the affairs of Divinity, which is only at the will of the Father. Even if Jesus did breathe into a sculptural piece of clay and turned it into a living bird; that is of creationism: a sole métier of the Divinity, being a miracle and not magic. This, turning of water into wine, was the first miracle of Jesus. “This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him” (John 2:11). Muhammad, having heard a lot of unscriptural apocryphal stories, which were easily spread by Jewish authors and Catholicism propagation, was grossly influenced by them.

                Who says Jesus Christ did not taste of death? That person must definitely be the worst calumnious candidate of Satanism. The death of the holy One of Israel had already gone the way of Divine ukase way back in Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” By ‘bruise his heel’, the humanity of Jesus is meant. Jesus Christ died on the cross; He rose on the third day to deal a destructive, bruising blow on the Devil’s head.

Isaac’s sacrifice typifies the ultimate Golgotha crucifixion

                Why do you think God demanded Isaac’s sacrificial trial from Abraham? It is to legitimize a spiritual phenomenon: the LORD God experiments a similitude of event on terra firma. God would not go to any other person – who would disappoint Him –; to Abraham, His friend, whose faith in the Creator is definitely Gibraltar fixed, God went to perform a similitude of the ultimate Golgotha soteriological arrangement. Salvation must be sanguineous. The life of the Adamic creation is in his blood. For the sinner to regain fellowship with his Creator, blood must pay for blood. When they committed the original sin, a quadruped was killed, not only to engage in the exchange of the sinless animals for the Adamic sinfulness, but also and very importantly, to propitiate God.

                The first thing Noah did immediately they disembarked from the Ark was to offer sacrifice to God, thanking Him for sparing the lives of the eight surviving souls of the Great Deluge. Genesis 8:20-21 “And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21) And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.”

                Before God told Abraham of a covenant, Genesis 15:9 reads, “And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” Blood sacrifice. The Old Testamentary reality did not commence without the statutory blood sprinkling. Exodus 24:5-8 “And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD. 6) And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7) And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient. 8) And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.” This was the commencement of the Old Testamentary covenant. The Blood.

This cup is the New Testament in my blood

                Paul wrote under the Holy Spirit’s inspiration, 6) “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. 7) For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second” (Hebrews 8:6-7). The second had its enactment in Luke 22:19-22 19) “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20) Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. 21) But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. 22) And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!” Why would Jesus make the statement of “Son of man goeth, as it was determined:” speaking of His impending death of the cross if He did not truly die to save the world? Theologically, salvation of the soul of man is contingent on the Golgotha event. This is the divine protocolary.

                Getting born again is a conscious effort on the part of an individual. Get born again. You were born in sin. Say this sinner’s prayer.

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
