Great Sermon! TRULY SPIRITUAL TRUTH IS FORM ABOVE!And why should it stagger thee, Nicodemus-who never really expected these scriptures to be fulfilled, except in subservience to thine own limited concept of Israel and the kingdom-that God should proclaim peace on earth, and goodwill towards men? Who hath believed our report? What report? John the baptist report: 'Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away....Was that never reported to him? Surely it was. But their ears were uncircumcised, their minds were blinded, and the veil(THE LAW)was upon their heart, else they would have known what had been so clearly testified to them already, and witnessed before their faces even up to that very hour.
Great Sermon! I was so blessed by this sermon as how you had presented from the text what was lacking in the church today. Discipleship! as seen in the turning over from John the baptist to Jesus, from the testifying of the light to The Light. This is awesome if only be given by God to His true people in the 'ecclesia', (of which I don't lose hope), since we lost a lot from the past - the true church which was from the beginning and ever shall be world without end. Amen
Great Sermon! Water Made To Wine -- John 2:9 - the first sign which is more than a miracle.
Place: Cana of Galilee. Why Cana? What is its significance? Cana's significance is its total insignificance. What is in Cana of Galilee? No temple, no religion, as a city, can't be compared like Nazareth is a city. 'Is there anything good coming from Nazareth?' It is in Jerusalem that has got the glory. What's Cana got? Let them nothing. It has got one thing, Christ is there! No religion, no temple, no ceremonies, no priest, no Levites, no forms, but this, nothing but Christ. Risen the third day from the dead in a figure with His own people drawn to Him, where Christ is all and in all in virtue of the fact that there's nothing else there! Is that how you are? What a place to get to. Nothing but Christ. Nothing you can do, nothing they can do, nothing I can do, nothing else you try you can do. But everything in this place, Christ has done all for this person 'for being at such a place'. Where nothing exist but Himself. Religiously speaking, is this how I am, is the lesson I got.
