“And he said to him, ‘Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!’” John 2:10, NKJV.
As of recent, the Spirit of God has consistently ministered to me that He is raising up a “NEW WINE GENERATION.”
It is time to break out of the religious institutions raised up by and built by man, and time for the church to drink deeply of the heavenly WINE made available to us, and given freely to us, by the Spirit of the Living God through Jesus Christ. God desires for each of us to be vats overflowing with the precious WINE of His SPIRIT, that everywhere we go, we will manifest the presence of God, bringing forth the very fragrance of Christ.
In this hour, the Lord is inviting those who have either been ignorant of, or have limited, the working of the Spirit of God in their lives. He is breaking molds made by man, and bursting forth the NEW WINE of His Spirit! Even those who have been taught and also taught others, that the Spirit of God’s working and gifting’s were only for the early church. But the Spirit of the Lord is present and active just as much as He was on the day of Pentecost and in the 1st century church!
When we allow the NEW WINE of the Spirit of God in, HE will bring the necessary changes and restore us, not only to the Word of God, but also to true INTIMACY and COMMUNION with the Lord.
The NEW WINE of the Holy Spirit tears down mental strongholds, including religious mentalities, that have tried to put the Lord into man-made ritualistic boxes. The Lord is saying it is time to do away with the OLD WINESKINS, that the NEW WINESKINS might be filled to overflowing, with the NEW WINE of His Spirit!!
BUT in order for the new wine to come forth, we MUST do away with the OLD, to allow the NEW to take it’s rightful place! The Lord is saying that if we allow Him to do the necessary work IN US, to deal with the OLD, we will experience the fresh outpouring of the NEW WINE of His Spirit we so desperately seek after.
In this season, I sense there may be some OLD habits, people, places, and things God is saying to rid of in your lives. This may also include leaving some even “good” OLD things behind, in order to walk into the NEW. But when the Lord REMOVES the OLD, He ALWAYS fills in with the NEW!
There is a generation arising that will not settle for less than God’s best! There is a GENERATION rising up that is hungry, thirsty, and desperate for the PRESENCE of GOD! There is a GENERATION waking up to the call of God’s Spirit and they will NOT LIMIT what God desires to accomplish in this hour! There is a GENERATION that will not grip the OLD, but make room for the NEW!
The Lord is saying there are many that are still hanging onto the OLD ,when the Lord is calling them to the NEW!
NEW WINE is being poured from heaven! NEW WINE is flowing forth even in this hour! There is no drink so satisfying, none so refreshing, none so fulfilling!
The ceiling is opening up! The walls of religion are coming down in this hour! It is time to drink of the NEW WINE!!
The Lord says, “It’s a NEW WINE GENERATION!”
