Col 1:16, For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.

None of the Gospels was written solely to provide an accurate historical account of the life of the Messiah. Although they do give us some idea of that history, after all it is His Story.

Each Gospel is directed at a specific audience with events portrayed in such a way as to be the most meaningful to that audience.

Matthew was written to the Jews. Demonstrated who Jesus was. Genealogy begins with Abraham and runs through King David. Evidence that Jesus was Messiah, the Lion of Judah, from the line of David.

Marks gospel was written to the Romans. His purpose was to portray Jesus as the obedient servant of God.

The Book of Acts and the book of Luke make up nearly a third of the New Testament--more than that written by either Paul or John.

John wrote to the Church and his Gospel is in many ways perhaps the most unique, as it is based upon 7 miracles,

Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, the Messiah and the source of eternal life.

The Word is eternal. The Word is God. The Word is the Creator. The Word is the source of life. The Word is the source of salvation. The Word became flesh. The Word is the Son of God sent by the Father.

Joh 20:31, They were "written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name".

"I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger.“ "I am the light of the world; he who fallows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life."

"I am the gate; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." "I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for His sheep."

"I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies." "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me."

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser."

John's Gospel covers only about 21 days out of the Lord's perhaps 3 and a half year ministry. All of the Gospels put together cover only about 60 days in the earthly ministry of the Lord.

3 is divinity and 7 is completion and 3+7 is 10 and 10 is perfect completion and 37 well…
153 = 1+5+3 = 9, 9 is a number that represents truth.

Aleph =1 Mem= 40 Tav = 400


441 is reduced to 9 (4+4+1).

9 is a unique number. When you multiply any number by 9, then add the resulting digits and reduce them to a single digit, it always becomes a 9.
6 x 9 = 54, reduce 54 to a single digit by adding them together: 5 + 4 = 9. 
5 + 9 = 14, 1 + 4 = 5. Or 7 + 9 = 16, 1 + 6 = 7.

Truth is can’t be diminished. Truth is always truth, It has always been truth and truth will always be truth and truth is truth whether it is believed or not.
God saves his best for last, no matter what the life of a believer is in time, the best is always saved for last, Heaven will far exceed anything anyone has seen or experienced on earth.

Joh 2:11. This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed His Glory and the disciples put their faith in Him.
God ordained and established marriage and its divine sanctity in Genesis, when He brought Adam and Eve together to become one flesh.

Joh 2:11, This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed His Glory and the disciples put their faith in Him.
The selection of the bride.

Joh 15:16, You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, He may give it to you.

A price for the bride was established. 1Co 6:20, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

A written document is drawn up.

The bride must give her consent.

The bride had a water immersion, which is a ritual of cleansing.

The bridegroom departed, going back to his father's house to prepare the bridal chamber. Joh 14:2,

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

Mat 26 "I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."
We as the bride of Christ have a cup of wine waiting for us in our Heavenly home that our Bridegroom has prepared for us.

Mat 24:36, But of that day and hour no man knows not the angels of Heaven, but My Father only.

Mar 13:32-37, “But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

The bridegroom would return with a shout, "Behold, the bridegroom comes" and the sound of the ram's horn would be blown.

1Th 4:16, For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

Finally, there would be a marriage supper for all the guests invited by the father of the bride.
6 pots X 3 firkins each of these measurements times 8.5 what we call gallons =153.

Joh 4:48, the Lord said to him, "Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe."
"Your son is living; he lives."

Perhaps he was somewhat uncertain, nevertheless he went; he obeyed the word of Jesus, though his mind may have still been troubled with doubt.

"The job of a coach is to make men do what they don't want to do, in order to achieve what they really want."
