Poisoned Wine Was Used by Satan to Spill Jesus’ Blood and Trash the Second Covenant

Wine Represents Jesus’ Blood that is Part Physical and Part Spiritual

Wine in the physical realm represents Jesus’ physical blood. Jesus took a cup of wine and said, “This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many” (Mark 14:24). The Israelites offered sheep and goats, but it wasn’t “possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins” (Hebrews 10:4). Their blood sacrifices brought forgiveness, but their sins were pushed ahead to the blood of Jesus for remission. The cup of wine that Jesus offered to His disciples represented the blood He would shed on the cross.

Wine is made from grapes. Jesus figuratively uses a grape vine to show His relationship to His people. “I am the true vine . . . you are the branches . . . If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned” (John 15:1, 5-6, NIV). In order to inherit eternal life, we must be grafted into the True Vine by baptism in Jesus’ name.

Wine in the spiritual realm represents the Holy Ghost, Jesus’ spiritual blood. The Holy Ghost is the lifeline of the True Vine, which grows on the roots of apostolic doctrine. Holy Ghost wine nourishes and revitalizes the branches that are grafted into the True Vine. When the disciples drank the wine that Jesus offered, they figuratively drank of the physical blood that would become the Holy Ghost in the spiritual realm.

After Jesus passed the cup of wine to His disciples, He said whosoever “drinketh my blood, hath eternal life” (John 6:54). Just as a physical body must have blood to survive in the physical realm, a spiritual body must have the Holy Ghost to survive in the spiritual realm (Poisoned Wine p182). When Jesus died, the Holy Ghost raised Him out of Hell and over the great gulf into heaven. Jesus promised that “if we have been planted in likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection” (Romans 6:5). The Holy Ghost will raise those who are grafted into the True Vine, if they drink the Holy Ghost wine that Jesus offers.

Trinity Wine Spilled Jesus’ Blood

Satan used Trinity Wine to spill Jesus’ blood. He thought Jesus had come in flesh to rule the earth, which he considered his domain, so he poisoned the apostolic wine by persuading the Jews to reject Jesus as God and Messiah. Satan continued to promote the idea that Jesus was just a man, until the Jews were ready to kill Him. When Jesus claimed to be God, they accused Him of lying and tried to stone Him (John 10:30-33). Satan spread his false doctrine around until the Jews were so riled they turned Jesus over to the Romans to be beaten and  nailed to the cross.

The cup of wine that Jesus offered to His disciples was being poisoned with the dogma that would later become the Trinity doctrine. Pilot saw nothing in Jesus that warranted death, so he offered the notorious Barabbas in His place. However, the people were so riled up they refused, so to stop the people from rioting, Pilot handed Jesus over to the Romans to be scourged and crucified. In order to fulfill the Scriptures of the prophets, Satan was allowed to poison the wine that Jesus offered by claiming that Jesus was just a man.

Satan thought his poisoned wine would obliterate Jesus; however, Jesus’ death put the Second Covenant into force. “For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator” (Hebrews 9:16). However, the early Roman church fathers rendered Jesus’ blood as useless by refining and brewing poisoned wine to dupe the people of the earth.

Poisoned Wine of the Trinity Trashed the Second Covenant

The poisoned wine of the Trinity  trashed the Second Covenant by declaring the Trinity doctrine. The 1st Commandment is “Thou shalt have no other Gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image” (Exodus 20:3). The 2nd Commandment is “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them” (Exodus 20:4). The Roman church broke both commandments (Romans 1:18-25) by declaring a Trinity of three persons in the Godhead.

The wine in most of today’s Christian churches is poisoned with Trinity doctrine. The first-century apostles wouldn’t recognize the doctrine that is preached, believed, and practiced as the same message they had loved and lived by. Today’s Trinity churches teach a misconstrued idea of salvation that differs from Peter’s teachings in Acts 2:38, 39. The minds and hearts of the people are filled with Trinity poisoned wine because they don’t know their God.

Throughout the ages, poisoned wine from this wild and unruly vine has been trashing the Second Covenant by spreading its poison over the earth. Satan is the steward of this vine and his spirit is its lifeline. This wine has an alluring color and an irresistible flavor that belies its deadliness and the eventual consequences for imbibing it. At the close of the end time Great Tribulation, an angel will reap the “vine of the earth” and its fruit with a sickle and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God (Revelation 14:17-20). Poisoned Wine will be wiped out when the Seventh Trumpet   sounds because God’s eyes cannot “behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity” (Habakkuk 1:13).

Poisoned Wine Persuaded the Jews to Reject Jesus as God and Messiah

Poisoned Wine Persuaded the Jews to Ignore Biblical Prophecy

Poisoned wine persuaded the Jews to reject baby Jesus. “Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel . . . For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.” (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6). Jesus was a human baby that cried when He was hungry, suckled for His food, shivered when cold, and laughed when tickled. Like all human babies, Jesus was helpless. The Jews had “eyes to see, and see not” (Ezekiel 12:2). God allowed Satan to blind the Jews because they worshiped a molten calf in rebellion and unbelief (Hebrews 316-19). Jesus came “unto his own, and his own received him not” (John 1:11).

The Jews wouldn’t accept Jesus as Messiah because they expected Jesus to come with power and glory in a chariot of fire as Elijah had departed (II Kings 2:11). He would be from the lineage of King David, dressed in fine linens, wearing gold bands and rings set with precious jewels. If the Jews had known their God, they would have accepted Jesus as Messiah.

Everywhere Jesus preached, Satan swayed the Jews. “He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?” (John 10:19-21.) When they asked Jesus if He was the Christ, He said, “I’ve already told you many times, but you won’t believe Me. . . I and my Father are one” (John 10:25, 26, and 30 NIV). When they angrily picked up stones, He said, “I’ve done many good things among you; for which of them are you stoning Me? [They replied,] We’re not stoning You for Your good works, but for blasphemy! You being a man, make Yourself God” (John 10:32-33 NIV)! The Jews adamantly rejected Jesus as God.

The Pharisees (religious Jews) also rejected Jesus. “Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath not the scripture said That Christ cometh of the seed of David . . .? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet” (John 7:41:52). They said, “This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the Sabbath (John 9:16.). The Pharisees wrangled among themselves until they were convinced that Jesus wasn’t God.

False Doctrine Swayed Jesus’ Family and Friends

Poisoned wine swayed Jesus’ brothers because they didn’t “believe in him” (John 7:5). When Jesus invited them to the Feast of Tabernacles, they declined. “Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest” (John 7:3). They wanted Jesus to leave before the crowds gathered because His preaching embarrassed them. One time, they roughly grabbed and dragged Him away from the crowd saying, “He is beside himself [He doesn’t know what he is saying]” (Mark 3:21). The brothers denied Jesus because they didn’t want to be associated with His miracles and teachings.

Neither did Mary Magdalene and Mary, mother of Jesus, believe Jesus was God. Two angels at Jesus’ tomb reminded them that Jesus said He would “be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again” (Luke 24:7). They didn’t realize that Jesus was God incarnate.

Friends and neighbors also rejected Jesus. In Nazareth, Jesus “did not many mighty works because of their unbelief” (Matthew 13:58). They elbowed each other and asked, “Who does he think He is? Why, we’ve known Him since He was a boy . . . He’s the carpenter’s son, and we know His mother and His brothers and sisters . . . Who gives Him the wisdom to teach like this and the authority to perform these mighty works?” (See Matthew 13:55-58 NIV.) Jesus’ countrymen knew Him, yet they rejected Him.

Satan and his Poisoned Wine Persuaded the Disciples

Satan and his false doctrine caused the disciples to reject Jesus as Messiah and God. Jesus tried to warn them of His coming crucifixion and resurrection (Mark 8:31; 9:31; Luke 18:31-33), but “they understood none of these things” (Luke 18:34). Peter and Thomas wanted to go with Him (John 13:36, 37; 14:5) and Philip asked Him to show him the Father. Jesus answered, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” (See John 14:9.) After Jesus was taken prisoner, “all the disciples forsook him, and left” (Matthew 26:56). Judas had betrayed Him, Peter denied Him, and Thomas refused to accept Him. The disciples believed Jesus came from God because they had heard His sermons and seen His miracles, but they rejected Him as Messiah and God.

When Mary Magdalene and Mary ran from the tomb to tell the apostles that Jesus had risen,  they wouldn’t listen. “Their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not” (Luke 24:11). Later, Jesus walked with Cleopas and others whose eyes were blinded “that they should not know him” (Luke 24:16). But “he took bread, and blessed it, and break, and gave to them and their eyes were opened, and they knew him” (Luke 24:30-31). These followers were blinded until Jesus blessed and broke bread.

The disciples didn’t believe Jesus had risen. “They were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit” (Luke 24:37). Jesus said, “Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have” (Luke 24:39). But they “believed not” (Luke 24:41) until He ate a piece of broiled fish. Later, Jesus appeared unto Thomas. “Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing” (John 20:27). The disciples were unsuccessfully fishing when Jesus appeared again and said, “Cast the net on the right side of the ship(John 21:6). When they drew up a net full of fish, they knew Jesus was God incarnate.
