The New Wine Must Be Put Into New Wineskins
“No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; or else the new piece pulls away from the old, and the tear is made worse. “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.” Mark 2:21-22
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright.
For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears. Hebrews 12:14-17
God wills that men do His perfect will rather than their will. He desires they do His will rather than their will. Yet, men say, “How can we do your will, O Lord, for we are merely lowly men. We can’t possibly know your perfect will.” For they are a stiff-necked people full of dead men’s bones and false knowledge. As they desire the knowledge and wisdom of this earth rather than the one that comes from above. Then, they wonder why God doesn’t answer them? Why God could possibly upset with them? Yet, they say, God is not judging it is the devil out to destroy them or using others for their harm. Never do they look to themselves and their ways before God. They think they can do no wrong because God accepts all of their ways as perfect and acceptable.
But God does not accept all of their ways or all of their thinking. He doesn’t accept the corruption of their minds or their bodies. He doesn’t accept their high minded philosophies and theologies. He doesn’t accept their rules and regulations for living. He doesn’t accept them. Something they can’t understand that God would reject them directly for what they sincerely believe to be His desire but they don’t hear Him when He tries to speak to them. They don’t listen when He calls them. They can’t hear in the spiritual realm because they have not developed listening spiritual ears.
What they call spiritual is not spiritual at all. It is carnal fleshly religious hogwash. They call it deep spiritual understanding. They expect God to endorse their philosophies but He doesn’t accept any of it, nor will He ever accept it. They must accept what He desires them to see and hear. They must stop having itching ears full of their desires and passions and flesh. But, they don’t see their flesh because they are so close to it. They don’t see and therefore they are spiritually blind and devoid of God purposes for their lives and the lives they lead to hell with them. They think they will escape God’s judgments and His anger but they will escape nothing.
God has set a place for them where they will rot forever in the halls of their own passion. They will cry everyday for what they never saw and totally missed. As God has sent His prophets to them and they would not receive the truth from their hand. He will send no other to them. They have rejected the truth. The truth that would have set them free if they had only seen it for what it was—the real honest to goodness truth!
Yet God is moving in a miraculous way to destroy the enemies of His truth and bring about a new church full of real truth. He is bringing spiritual healing and awakening to His land and His body. He is moving to bring change to a decadent and decaying church. He is destroying those who have exploited His people in His Name. Any who used God’s Name to bring such abuse and misuse of His sheep will now pay with their very lives and their livelihood as Eli and his two thieving and raping sons did. Even now God’s armies are marching to tread down the strongholds of men’s vain philosophy from one end of the earth to the other.
No, idol worship, philosophy, technology, financial empire, government institution or any other man made structure or system of thought will withstand the advance of God’s great and powerful army. His vanguard will both in prayer and in teaching tear down all these vain strongholds and bring to not their influence. For great is the influence of God’s true ones. They are beyond the world and they will bring great deliverance to His hurting multitudes.
Yes, multitudes are about to enter into a new relationship with God, full of the Spirit and real truth. They are mounting a fresh attack in the spiritual realm and great is the destruction of the enemies’ fortresses. He thinks they will not fall but they are already falling. They are coming to a new place of destruction. The oil refineries and the pagan nations and the denominations and the governments and the institutions and the medical professions and the vain systems of thought and subject matter are coming to their proper end. God reigns sovereign above all. They cannot withstand His great army of truth and power vested in His great servants and prayer warriors. This battle has not even begun. What is now seen is only a glimmer of the great destruction and harvest that is coming.
God protects His own! He defends His true ones. He magnifies and uplifts His beloved children. He blesses and glorifies His own pure ones. He is delivering them out of harm’s way because they are His true servants and He is their God! There is no one who can take them from Him and there is no one who can stop what is about to take place. The weapons they carry are spiritual and very destructive. Their tongues are a shape two edged sword carrying the Word to many nations. Their hearts are full of the Spirit of the Lord and His truth. Their hands wield the sword of the Spirit and bring the plans of mice and men to their fitting destruction. Let all men be liars and God be true for there is on other on earth who is greater than He.
For God is the great I Am and the enemy is coming to his end. He thinks because he is clever and appears smarter than God’s people that he has somehow won but he has not won at all. He is defeated and a simpleton who is deceived and thinks that he has won what he has not won. He thinks he possesses what he does not possess for the possessions of the heathen are stored up for the righteous and the cattle on a thousand hills are God’s !
And now, the hour of their destruction and calamity is at hand. Men will run to and fro but find no place to find shelter from the storms He is setting against them. As they set a snare from God’s true Ones now they will suffer the same fate. They will experience first hand the destruction they have desired to see set upon God’s people as Haman desired for Mordecai. But Mordecai became second only to the Emperor and Haman hung on the gallows he made for Mordecai. If men think destruction is not eminent they don’t know God at all. But what is that to God, after all, He is the great I Am and none may stand before Him.
Yes, God loves deeply and profoundly! but He only loves those who truly desire to serve Him with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength. He does not desire men’s lip service but their true surrender to His perfect will for their lives. But men, even religious ones, have gone each to their own way and refused to do what He has commanded them to do directly. He spoke to them and they could not hear. But that is no consequence to God. If they choose not to hear that was their choice. He gave them only one choice and one option. He commanded them to hear His voice and they would not. So, now is their destruction about to come upon them and for some it has already begun. This is not God’s choice but theirs. God is only doing what He must do as a Great and Sovereign Lord. He cannot deny Who He is. He cannot deny His purity of heart and Spirit. He cannot deny His Own true Nature.
Men can’t believe God’s true Nature. They think God exists only as they see Him. They think He, somehow, fits into their mold for Him. But they think wrong! God doesn’t fit their mold. He doesn’t fit their theology. He doesn’t fit into their logic. He just doesn’t fit into their religious thinking. He fit His own thinking and He will not change. It is men who must change and mold their lives by yielding to God’s will, not He to theirs. This is something few understand. True obedience is true yieldedness and teachableness. It is not a verbal surrender. It transcends the mind and the body into the Spiritual realm and brings man’s nature into a new dimension where few have gone before.
Now, is the hour of their transfiguration. Men may be transformed into God’s image in only a way He can do. They cannot accomplish this spiritual union. Only a surrendered humble vessel can possibly hope to achieve this ultimate relationship with God in the spiritual realm. Only the humble pure vessel can hold the New Wine! For after all it is the New Wine!
