“This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
As I prepared October’s Blog I felt led to add a bit of Halloween fun to the mix. I am a very Christ loving gal, but I got over my ‘religious’ years of condemning the harmless tradition of Halloween many years ago. I repent for being such an old wine-skin and glad to be delivered of them demons.. << the uptight, religious grump.. LOL
“No one pours new wine into old wine-skins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wine-skins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wine-skins, and both are preserved.” -Matt 9:17
There is no such thing as a Christ believing and loving Christian that gives Satan a day, so let’s not judge others according to ‘who you give the day to’ because I give Satan NO DAYS. This is a day that is actually to celebrate all the spiritual saints of the past, with a touch of tradition making it a silly day to dress up and commune in the neighborhood collecting goodies.. (please hand out apples folks). IF only-right. 😉
Anyway as my youngest daughter thought of me when she saw the T-shirt in the photo above ( I’m guessing she sees me as the (GOOD) witch and that I can use an occasional glass of wine). 😉 and the wine glass in the photo I won at a fundraiser.. it reads, “Save Water, Drink Wine,” and all this brought me to the scriptures of Jesus turning water to wine and I wanted to share a lil’ bible lesson on this day OF ALL SAINTS.
The transformation of water into wine at the Marriage at Cana or Wedding at Cana is the first miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John. In the Gospel account, Jesus, his mother and his disciples are invited to a wedding, and when the wine runs out, Jesus delivers a sign of his glory by turning water into wine. -John 2:1-11
There’s more to be said about this passage, but certainly not less than this: Jesus made so much wine to show the long-promised age has arrived and the blessings that accompany his kingdom are overflowing.
Out of Jesus’s fullness the wedding guests received grace upon grace (John 1:16). They drank the very best earthly wine ever created, made by the Creator of grapes himself. But more than that, the wine they drank freely was a foretaste of the gospel.
Jesus knew the time for making the real gospel wine of Calvary had not yet come (John 2:4).But this wedding wine, poured out of vessels of purification, foreshadowed that best of all wines, which would be served after humans had done their sinful insufficient best to meet their need and failed. This wine would flow freely with infinite abundance from the purest Vessel of all time for the greatest wedding of all time.
Wine symbolizes the blood (sacrifice) of the Lord Jesus Christ during the Lord’s Supper And was used by the Lord Jesus Christ as a sign of the covenant. In the evening when he was to be arrested, the Lord Jesus asked to have a last supper, that His disciples prepared. During that supper…
While they were eating, He took some bread, and after a blessing He broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take it; this is My body.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
I am also sharing the “Cup” of Christ pointing out my cup in the photo to remind me to sometimes choose a glass of wine to help with my holistic remedies towards healing.
“No longer drink water exclusively, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.”~1 Tim 5:24
With all this I am in no way encouraging drinking as a past time, nor do I encourage alcoholics to take in the drinking of wine, for there is no temptation coming from me; I am however sharing the symbolic and biblical view-point of ‘Which/Witch’ wine is best.. and that be our all mighty, loving perfect saint of all saints, Our Savior JESUS CHRIST! ❤
Today I celebrate Christ and HIS overflowing Glory forever & ever, I give HIM all days, As I fill my glass with the “GOOD Wine!” ❤
Signed -The Good Witch! 😉 ❤
