Drink your wine with a merry heart

John Collins3/28/2013 8:45:00 PMJohn 2 tells the story of Jesus attending a wedding in Cana with his disciples the party ran out of wine. The mother of Jesus said, "They have no wine," and his mother then said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you"

Jesus ordered the servants to fill containers with water and to draw out some and take it to the chief steward waiter. After tasting it, and not knowing where it came from, the steward congratulated the bridegroom on departing from the custom of serving the best wine first by serving it last.

John adds that: "Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee and it revealed his glory and his disciples believed in him.

This is one of the "miracles" that Jesus performed, displaying his power as God even though he was in the form of a man.

Yet every single cult church teaches against drinking wine -- because William Branham did. He associated wine with women and 'sinful things'.

Some examples:
Quote:
That's right. And they accepted their big time, wine, women, and everything else, and they've been the disgrace to the world ever since.
-- 53-1018 ELIJAH

Women, wine, debauchery, sin and filth to the gills.
-- 54-0509 THE INVASION OF THE UNITED STATES

Now, look at them, as they're just whooping it up, in a big party, and going on like that, thinking nothing about it. And all of a sudden, I can see the king, just about the time he's got his big joke going, and everything, with the wine in his hand, to have a good time (They had been warned of these things.), so, about time he got ready to take a drink, something happened.

Tried to live in sin. Women, wine, and big time.

You go into France, you find an immoral spirit, just women, and wine, and liquor, and--and stuff like that. See?

The early church had water -- there were many wells and drinking water. Even at the wedding supper, water was available!

Do cult pastors REALLY think that Jesus turned water into "filth" and gave it out at the wedding supper? ...or do they simply not know what is in-between the leather bindings of their Bibles?

Go, eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do.
