KEY SCRIPTURE: John 2:10 KJV “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.”
Man, always tries his best in all that He does, yet when God steps in, the game always changes. Jesus produced the best wine according to the master of the ceremony. He said in every feast the good wine is served first and after people are well satisfied the bad one is given. What is a good wine? The bible distinguishes between the types of wine the Jewish people used to have.
1.The new wine Prov 3:10, Isaiah 27:4, Isaiah 65:8 and
2. The old wine Luke 5:39
Old wines are fermented new wine. The new wines are the freshly pressed wines which are the better ones. The statement the master of the ceremonies made, saying when men have “well drunk”, does not mean when men were intoxicated after drinking the good or new wine. The statement means when men have drunk to their fill. You can drink a non-alcoholic drink to your fill. This does not mean you were intoxicated by it. The scriptures does not encourage intoxication.
Our focus of study for now is that God’s works are always the best. Our world is trying to push God out of our societies. Secularism means God is not factored into man’s equation, and therefore man lives to please himself.
When man is in charge of affairs, he destroys his fellow men.2 Timothy 3:1 state, there would be perilous, difficulty or evil times in the last days, why? Because men would be in charge of their affairs and doing what they like. In a fully blown secular system a few people welding a great amount of wealth can decide to control the population of the whole world. They can plan diseases to eradicate men, prevent simple treatment not to be used, so that many would die. As result of the many deaths, everyone would be afraid. In the course of the fears, they suggest a medication that can, probably prevent, or control the disease. Their suggested drug has no certain years of trials, giving any strong empirical grounds for its use. They manage to convince all, this has been proven to be good, use it that is the only way out.
People go for it because they are afraid.
If it turns out to be dangerous, they achieve their aim in wiping our humanity as they projected from the beginning. This is what extreme secularism can offer men.
When God is in charge, man does not see other humans as tools to get what he wants, but a fellow in God’s image with God’s potentials fully immersed in him. When God is in charge each individual is allowed to achieve his unique potential and the power of God works miracles to solve the universal problem of men. I wish to make this categorical statement, when God is to be in charge of our world, the resources of our earth shall always be sufficient for each present world population. It is the wickedness of men steered by secularism that put God out of our world system, and then the result is men manipulating their fellow men. God brings true freedom.
THOUGHT: THE GREATEST MISTAKE OF MEN FOR ALL TIME, IS WHEN MEN PUT GOD OUT OF HIS SYSTEMS.
Rom 1:21 ,22,24 KJV “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:”
