Water into wine

John 2:1

        “ On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding.”

    I would like to share with you some prophetic insight that was once shared with me regarding the amount of time Jesus would be gone so that the above verse can mean to you prophetically what it means to me. 

To begin with, let us first examine the study verse. 

John 2:1 states that "on the third day there was a wedding in Cana". We know that Jesus turned water into wine at Cana. I believe that even though this really happened, it is also a shadow of the wedding supper with the lamb for us. I believe that it is at the marriage supper of the Lamb alluded to in Revelation 19:6-9 where we, as believers, as the church, the bride of Christ will be fully made into what we really are- wine which of course represents the Holy Spirit.  I believe that the phraseology  "on the third day" is significant because it indicates a real timeline for the time between when Jesus ascended and the time when we will be with Him at the marriage supper. The reason that I believe it is significant is due to the prophetic insight afore mentioned. 

    There is a parable in Luke 10:30-37. and it explains how a man was beaten and left for dead in the streets of Jericho. Both a priest and a Levite {who represent the religion and the law} passed by and did nothing. Then a Samaritan saw him lying there and went to his aide. The Samaritan had to leave town though, so after he triaged the victim, he left him in the care of the innkeeper and paid his way for two days.  To make a long parable short, the fact that the Samaritan gave the inn keeper only two day’s worth of fees for the injured man was a prophetic shadow of how long- approximately- Jesus would be gone. {1 day= 1000 years}. In other words, if the Samaritan intended to be gone closer to three days, then he would have given the innkeeper three day’s worth of fees. In fact the Samaritan even stated to the innkeeper that if by chance he tarried then he would settle the account when he returned. I have said all of this to lay groundwork for the underlying concept that even though the two-day payment of the Samaritan to the innkeeper seems insignificant to us, it is not arbitrary and should be utilized to build a timeline for Jesus’ return to us in the flesh. The same “type" of prophetic shadow exists in John 2:1. The wedding at Cana is a prophetic shadow of the church's wedding supper with Jesus. The fact that God was so deliberate in stating that the wedding occurred "on the third day" means something deeper. We do not know what day of the week this was, and to some extent not even what year and therefore cannot represent significance in our hearts with respect to holy days, feast days, etc. Thus, it can be arguably concluded that esoterically, the phrase “ on the third day” refers to the fact that it will take approximately 3 days - or 3,000 years for everything to come to pass between Jesus' ascension and the marriage supper of the Lamb. Since we don't really know when exactly the marriage supper is, I believe John 2:1 could be a little shadow of a timeline.

    I am aware that this notion might seem unimportant or even too esoteric to delve into, but if we utilize the Bible to define the Bible, many more things that we read, and study therein will yield life to us because we will gain an understanding of God more fully.
