Listen, God almighty performed the miracle with Moses’ rod. It turned into a serpent and Pharaoh said, “Is this what you God can do?” He called his magicians and his magicians came. The Bible says, “That the magicians of Egypt cast their rods on the ground and they all turned into serpents.”
Bible doesn’t say that there was a trick. There was no trick. We’re not talking about some of the magicians we have today that do and it’s a trick and everybody’s trying to look for the trick.
This was no trick. They cast their rods down and they turned into serpents before Pharaoh and before Moses and Aaron. How could they have done it? Didn’t you hear what he called them? These are sorcerers. Go back to that scripture. Go back to that verse.
“Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers.” These are the magicians. These are the people who dealt in the spirit realm.
These are people who could draw spirits. They’re related with spirits. They understood the forces of darkness. And they performed signs and wonders. Exactly like God did. The difference was, okay, next verse, “But Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.”
Now I want you to notice, he didn’t say, “But Aaron’s serpent swallowed up their serpents,” he said, “Aaron’s rod,” Reminding us that it was a rod that turned into a serpent. “Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.” God showed his bigness. But what I wanted you to notice is that these magicians, did the same thing.
You want to convince people that God raised Jesus from the dead without the miracles and the supernatural? You must be kidding. You can see why we must have the supernatural, otherwise Christianity is another dead religion. Praise God, we have it. Hallelujah. We have it.
I mean look at that. God knew it would work. God knew they were going to do the same thing, but he’s training Moses about the supernatural life.
Look at Jesus. Let me show you something about Jesus. Ready for this? St. John’s Gospel, chapter 2. Let’s read from verse 1. St. John, chapter 2, from verse 1. “And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there, and both Jesus was called and his disciples to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus saith into her, ‘Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.’ ” His mother says to the servants, “Whatever he tells you to do, do it.”
Oh boy, I’m moving too fast for you now. We’re beginning to deal with something. Mysteries, for the manifestations of God’s power. There are mysteries. That if any man would understand those mysteries and apply them, it will bring an end to misery. Look at it.
“His mother saith unto the servants, whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” You know, sometimes in life you just want to see a miracle. You need a miracle. But are you ready to do whatever he says to you? This was going to be a risky business. We’ll see it in a second. Okay.
“His mother said unto the servants, whatsoever,” whatsoever, “he saith unto you, do it.” Now watch this. They have no wine. There’s a lot of people. The wine is finished, but there’s a lot of people. Mary, the mother of Jesus, comes to him and says, “They have no wine.” And the response of Jesus was not encouraging anyway. Then she turns to the servants and says, “Whatever he tells you to do, do it. Whatever he tells you to do, do it.”
She knew it’d work. Let’s see. Next verse. “And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.” That’s about 10 gallons for one firkin. And either two or three, that’s 20 gallons or 30 gallons.
Imagine this. The Bible says these waterpots were for the purifying. That means that the waterpots for washing your feet when you came into the place. So it’s dirty water. Okay. Like dishwater. It’s not clean water. It’s not for drinking. It’s water at the door. You wash, wash your hands, your face then you go inside.
Now, these are the containers outside. Then, next verse. “Jesus saith unto them,” to the servants, “Fill the waterpots with water.” Fill them, “And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, draw out now and take it to the governor of the feast,” take it to the master of ceremony. “And they took it.”
Now, this is risky because you know where this water’s coming from. Nobody’s supposed to drink this thing. Now, let’s see the next verse.
