A Wedding Feast and A Cleansed Temple, A Picture of What Lies Ahead - John 1

"And on the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee...
and Jesus also was invited to the wedding." (vs 1)
"And the passover of the Jews was at hand,
and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
And He found in the temple those who were selling oxen
and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers seated.
And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all
out of the temple...." (vs 13-14)

There is some interesting foreshadowing here in John 1. I had never paused to dwell on it until today, but having now done so it thrills my heart.

Has it ever crossed your mind that Christ's first public works were attending a wedding feast and cleansing a polluted temple? It struck my mind this morning that those will also be among His first works when He returns. He will purify His church and set up the great Wedding Feast for His washed up bride!

Lord, haste the day!!

In His glorious grace,
