The Wedding at Cana

And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!” This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him. John 2:10-11

It is worthy of note the first miracle of Jesus recorded for us by John was that of turning water into wine and the occasion for this “beginning of signs” was a Wedding in Cana. What an occasion it must have been, celebration and joy as Bride and Bridegroom join in the holy union provided by the Lord for Husband and Wife. Yet as the wedding celebrations continued it became clear to those serving that the provision of wine was not sufficient to last the duration of the feast and when it finally did run out unless something was done quickly the happy occasion was not going to end well. Thankfully, amongst the wedding guests, is none other than our Bridegroom Jesus, who when approached by His mother Mary for help, replied “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.” When Jesus said this, it didn’t mean He was not ready to help, on the contrary,

Jesus will never turn someone away when they come to Him on the basis of who He is, and this is how Mary came, she knew who He was and that He could help.

So Jesus’ comment wasn’t refusal but it was revelatory. He revealed something even His mother did not understand: His time had not yet come! It was not yet time for the world to see His glory.

This is seen many times throughout His earthly ministry, when Jesus did not openly reveal His glory, instead, He purposefully chose to avoid such opportunities that presented themselves. He also instructed His disciples “Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.” Matt 16:20. And commanded the demons “He would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was.” (Mark 1:34) And also those He had healed “Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it.” Mark 7:36.

Although His time had not yet come the glory of Jesus was first revealed at a wedding He had been invited to. That day only a few were there to witness this manifestation of who He really was but

soon is coming a day when the whole world will see the full manifestation and glory of who Jesus is when He returns for His Bride to take her to His own wedding.

For as “For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:27. “(7) Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.” – Revelation 1:7 NKJV

Beloved, our journey of miracles began with our Bridegroom when He became our Kinsman Redeemer and paid our ransom through His own shed blood. He remains affectionately attendant in our lives to help us in our hour of need. He is not far from us but lives in us through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Just like the wine, He saves “the best till last”. There is so much more for us to encounter, so much more for us to know.

Lovingly He caresses our hearts with words to awaken love and quicken our hearts to a place outside the confinements of our earthly limitation or despair.

If you need a miracle today, He is able and He bids you Come.

“(2) [The Shulamite] Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth–For your love is better than wine.” – Song of Songs 1:2 NKJV
