February 5 — 5 is the number of Grace….
I heard, “Not the Grapes of Wrath but the GRAPES OF GRACE”
The Season of FINE WINE, the best saved for the last. The Time of New Wine flowing into New Wine Skins. A NEW MANTLE of the New Covenant.
“Beloved. There is a battle between the Old Wine skins and the New, My Child; between the old mindset of works and the Mind of Christ and My Grace.
Many shall come against you, My Child. Many shall come against your message of My Forgiveness, Goodness, Mercy and Grace.
Do not fear and do not grow discouraged. Spiritual things are only understood spiritually. Many are walking in their flesh. But you walk in the Spirit, My Bride.
Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My Sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Know this, My Child. There are many who cannot come where you are going. Sometimes you must come out with Me on your own. Do not let the enemy hold you back.
You are the Ones with crazy faith! For you know your God and you shall do exploits! You will not have the agenda of man but of your God.
Many cannot take the New Wine because they are still their Old Wine skin because of stubbornness and pride.
People see only the OLD ways when I AM doing a New Thing. There is a NEW and LIVING WAY in Christ Jesus. There is no doom and gloom in My Kingdom.
I AM the same yesterday today and forever.
Depending upon My Grace alone and not works is the only Way up, Beloved. Grace is only understood by the Spirit.
I AM bringing My Own up to new levels. New levels of wisdom and understanding. You must understand the GRACE of your God to be victorious.
It is NEVER about works, but ALWAYS about My Finished Work of the Cross. Venture out today, My Child. I hold you by the hand. Be teachable, Dear One. For I AM your Teacher.
Do not let religious spirits hold you back and depress you. I AM meeting you Face to face. I AM bringing you forth from the Secret Place where I have infused you with My Glory.
No one shall change this, Beloved. No one shall change you for “you shall know that you know.”
And you shall be a refreshing SPRING, an OASIS for those who are thirsty. RIVERS of Living Water shall flow from you. The NEW WINE shall BUBBLE UP and your effervescence shall intoxicate others by the Spirit of your God!
So be fearful no longer. Be anxious no longer. Look at yourself and your own works no longer. You are My Witnesses and My Voices who have died to self and now are alive in Christ.
I AM releasing the NEW WINE. Let there be no more division over trivial things but you are all ONE in Me. Love one another as I have loved you. Desire the NEW WINE which gives LIFE!
Take off the Grave Clothes, Dear One. Pick up your NEW MANTLE, Beloved. I have qualified you as ministers of a NEW covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life!
The NEW WINE is flowing! My Bride is rising up in Glory and Grace. I have saved the BEST WINE for last, My Beloved, and it shall go down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
I have saved the BEST until last, My Bride! And I shall reveal MY GLORY in you and many shall believe!”
EFFERVESCENCE : Full of life and movement; having an ‘effervescent’ personality. Excitement, liveliness. Someone with an effervescent personality is lively, sparkling and high-spirited. Joy, enthusiasm, jubilance. People who are ‘bubbling with enthusiasm’.
“Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim that anything comes from us, but our competence comes from God. And He has qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” 2 Corinthians 3:5-6.
“For God has not appointed us to suffer wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him.…” 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10.
“He also told them a parable: “No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will tear the new garment as well, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will spill, and the wineskins will be ruined. Instead, new wine is poured into new wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine wants new, for he says, ‘The old is better.’ ”” Luke 5:36-39.
“(The Bridegroom speaks) And the roof of your mouth like the BEST WINE for My Beloved, that goes down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak. (The bride speaks) I am my Beloved’s, and His desire is toward me.” Song of Solomon 7:9-10.
“and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not know where it was from, but the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone serves the fine wine first, and then the cheap wine after the guests are drunk. But you have saved the fine wine until now!” Jesus performed this, the first of His signs, at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed His glory, and His disciples believed in Him.…” John 2:9-11.
“So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?”
Others mocking said, “They are full of new wine.”
But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.” ” Acts 2:12-18.
“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” Matthew 5:12.
