I will make of thee a great nation (goy/ not a political system)
, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee
: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Gen.17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
Gal.3:24-29 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Matt.3:7b-10 who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come. Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Rom.2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (Rev.2:9)
Rom.3:29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: (Rev.3:9)

Ex.23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
Jn.15:1-6 I am the true vine, and my Father (praise His name) is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
Jn.15:14-16 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
THE 1ST MIRACLE OF YESHUA (Jesus)
Looking back to John 15 we learned much about bearing fruits of The Vine.
said "Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you."
This isnt the only place we see The Word in relation to cleansing.
In Eph.5 we see the relationship Christ has with his church is liked unto that of a husband and wife (Gen.2:24
). Then we are given the symbol of water as like unto the cleasining by the Word.
Eph.5:25-26 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church
, and gave himself for it; That he might *sanctify and *cleanse it with the *washing of *water by the *word, (Jn. 3)
The first miracle of Yeshua took place at a wedding!
And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto 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 (Jn.14:15/ 1 Jn.5:3). And there were set there six waterpots of stone (stone- Matt.3:9/ Father is potter we are the clay Is.64:8), after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
Men recieved The Word from Messiah & did all he told them to, which was to pour "Water" (The cleasning Word) into vessels (again man is liked unto vessels Is.64:8/ Ecc.12:6-7) and when the vessels received the water (cleansing Word) then the vessels brought forth fruit of THE VINE (Mashiach)., God gives the increase. (1 Cor.3:6/ Is.55:11). The message of the first miracle of Yeshua is the same message he gave to his Apostels prior to his ascension (Matt.28:18-20). (1 Jn.5)
