Can Christians Smoke A Cig
  
Hearken unto Me every one of you, and understand: There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Cigarettes will shorten/take your life. The Holy Spirit is not affected by your physical lungs and heart. The Holy Spirit is not coughing and wheezing when you smoke.
The Holy Spirit is not affected by your physical liver or your pancreas,...

Pharisees, Jews, except they wash hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. .. the washing of cups, pots, brazen vessels, tables.

Pharisees, scribes asked Him, "Why walk not Thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?" He said, Well hath Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, THIS PEOPLE HONOURETH ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME (Isaiah 29:13).

The messianic age has begun, the wedding celebration has started, the hour is here. But we can't have the joy of the wedding without the wine of the Spirit. We cannot have life in the new covenant by hanging onto the old order that has been replaced. Keeping Torah, living under the law, can never get us to the seventh day. The first wine at the wedding ran out; it failed. So too will dependence on rules and self-effort.

Jesus wants to replace the water of law and self-effort with the wine of the Spirit. This is the wine that will give us joy and life. Jesus doesn't give us just one bottle. He gives us gallons upon gallons. He wants us to experience the joy of the wedding, to enter into a marriage relationship with Him. Even in suffering we can experience life and joy in the presence of God. The joy of the wine of the Spirit lies in the blood of the new covenant has been poured out for the life of the world.

Jesus tells us to drink of the Spirit and enter into the joy of the wedding, the life of the messianic banquet. But in order to enter, in order to see, we have to believe, and believing demands that we let go of the old: that we take off the heavy weight of law and self-effort. . He went to a wedding at Cana and transformed water into wine. If we believe, then we will see His glory. We drink the new wine of His Spirit, and we enter into the joy of the wedding.

Ktiso, JT, this miracle is far more than Jesus being a backup caterer at a wedding. The Wedding Wine.

As time permits, maybe we can take a look at the other miracles of Jesus Christ.

Good post, JT.

I was walking the other night and that's exactly the discussion I had with a loved one. Jesus healed on the Sabbath and turned the water into wine. The first miracle and so many have turned it into a Sonoma Valley wine tasting party.
It's hurting their feelings to think Jesus may have had a cup of wine, but there is so much more they're missing.

What is the significance - Not that we should get drunk, or invest in expensive wine. It does not mean that God loves good wine. The water represents the old order of Jewish law and custom. The number 6, one less than 7, may be a reference to incompleteness.

In the O.T., the messianic age was foretold by the prophets as a time when wine would flow liberally (Isa 55:1; 62:8-9; Jer 31:12; Hos 14:7; Amos 9:13-14). Wine is also a symbol of joy. There is the "wine which makes man's heart glad" (Ps 104:15). A wedding was a symbol for the consummation of the messianic age, an accepted symbol of the joy of God's reign (Isa 54:4-8; 62:4-5; Matt 22:1-14; 25:1-13).

rw - that would be the old covenant.

Jesus's miracle of turning the water into wine, is a powerful revelation of Jesus Christ putting away the Old Testament law and giving us the New Covenant.

The water, normally used for ceremonial cleansing, turned to wine and so that which had formerly only temporarily cleansed a person from sin now became symbolic of the Blood of Jesus that washes us clean forever (Luke 22:20).

The master of the banquet remarked that the bridegroom had saved the best till last signifying that the New Covenant that permanently cleanses us (represented by the wine), is far superior to the Old Covenant that only temporarily set aside our sins (represented by the water). By this miracle Jesus truly did reveal His Glory.
