The Best For Last
Now there were set there six water pots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons a piece. Jesus said to them, “Fill the water pots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. And said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests are well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”
God’s timing is always perfect, and He knew this need would arise. Notice the Father has already positioned empty water pots of stone; these were not ordinary water pots, these pots were for purification called a ‘mikvah.’ The mikvah was a spiritual cleansing, a bath. Oral tradition has it that after Adam sinned, he went to a mikvah to bathe and cleanse himself before prayer, and the practice has carried on throughout the generations. Six empty water pots for purification, silently positioned there, unnoticed. Each container held twenty gallons of water; customarily, a mikvah required 120 gallons, and well water could not be used. It had to come from a flowing body of water, such as a stream.
Advance one chapter to John 3, we have the famous conversation between Jesus and a Pharisee named Nicodemus about the new birth. Jesus tells Nicodemus, “Most assuredly, I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’”
Symbolically, The Holy Spirit draws us out of our circumstances. Usually, people will accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior after trying everything else that the world has to offer. The Holy Spirit draws us out of sin by the lamb's blood. We are born again through the baptism of water, a purification process.
One day in Revelation 19:9, another wedding called: “The Marriage Supper of the Lamb” will take place. On that day, Jesus will present us to our Father, The Master of the Feast. And Father God will proclaim, “You have saved the Best for Last!”
Just like the water pots for purification silently positioned in advance, Father God has placed you here in this time, silently set. Because He has saved:
“The Best For Last!”
