Joh 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
The marriage feast of the lamb, New Jerusalem coming down, the second coming
Joh 2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
Jesus and his disciples are called
Joh 2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
This is talking about the church the wine of Pentecost runs out.
Joh 2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
His hour had not yet come, it doesn’t come until the bride is ready, Jesus is making it clear this event that was happening is a shadow of what was to come, when New Jerusalem is built with lively stones, through the troubleous times, at the end of the new testament dispensation., after 2 days
Hos 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Joh 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
Joh 2:6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
Joh 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
Joh 2:8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
Joh 2:9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
Joh 2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
The water and wine is symbolic of the feast of tabernacles, the water is the holy spirit and the wine is the result of the winepress of tribulation, when the indwelling transitions to the manifest Sons of God in the elect, the lively stones of New Jerusalem, the remnant that entered the kingdom thru much tribulation
Joh 2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
Christ gave glimpses of his glory in these miracles before his death and resurrection, gave us a longer but still just a glimpse of his glory as the firstfruits, in his resurrected body before he ascended, the wedding at canaan is the picture of coruptible first adam being put away, bodily, Christ the firstfruit then us at his coming on the third day.
1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
