It has never ceased to amaze me, that the very first miracle Jesus did, that we have recorded, is the Lord extending a party. Now, let me assure you, I am pretty sure that Jesus performed miracles while growing up, they just are not recorded for us. But this one in John chapter two is.
John 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and His disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto Him, "They have no wine." 4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, "Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it." 6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three *firkins apiece. 7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And He saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. (* A firkin is about 9 gallons, so each 2 firkin pot held 18 gallons and each 3 firkin pot 27 gallons.) (John 2:1-25 ACP/KJV)
Six barrels holding either 18 or 27 gallons of the best wine they had ever had, now, we don't know how many were at the marriage feast, but that is a minimum of 117 gallons and a maximum of 153 gallons of wine. Let the party continue.
Now one of the reasons I am so sure that Jesus had done miracles before is the way His mother came to Him, in verse 3, she simply went to Jesus and said "They have no wine." And while Jesus didn't say He would do anything about it, she said to the servants "Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it." She had to know He was capable of creating wine out of thin air if necessary. How would she know this? Well I think she knew it because miracles where something Mary had seen Jesus do in the past. I would imagine when one of his brothers or sisters got sick, He healed them. Perhaps He supplied food for them, I don't know. Maybe when the family donkey got sick, the Lord touched it and it was made whole, I don't know.
Another reason I believe Jesus had done miracles is found in verse two. Jesus had just picked five of His disciples, yet, there was room made for them at the feast, "And both Jesus was called, and His disciples, to the marriage." Ever planned a wedding, imagine having to find room for five more men and maybe their wives and kids, with only a one day notice. Not going to do that for just any Tom, Dick or Harry.
Jesus is still doing miracles today, bigger miracles today than ever, for the greatest miracle of all is the gift of eternal life with Him, The Father, and The Holy Ghost, and He bestows that gift upon all that call on His name in honesty and sincerity.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
