“’The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when the reaper will be overtaken by the plowman and the planter by the one treading grapes. New wine will drip from the mountains and flow from the hills,” Amos 9:13.
In that day new wine will come flowing down from the mountains and the hills.
We have the new wine that is being poured out upon us through the Holy Spirit, but the time is coming when that oil will flow like the rivers themselves.
There will be such an abundance of this new wine that it will overflow unto everything that is around.
As many would know or surmise, a farmer would plant the seeds of various crops during a certain season. Then later on, when those seeds have grown into mature plants, he would harvest them, and then store them into bins.
All of this would be dependent upon the condition of the soil, the rains that would come, and the sunshine. But at that time in the future Kingdom, both planting and reaping would not follow the regular course of events that have been upon this earth.
The prophet Elisha came to the widow at Zarephath and called to her to fetch some water for him since he was thirsty, as well as some bread. The widow had run out of flour and oil and was getting ready to die.
But the prophet told her to make a cake for himself, the widow and the child. The oil and the bread did not run out, and it flowed endlessly.
“For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.
And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah,” 1 Kings 17:14-16.
We are told that the latter house will be greater than the former one. For now we have the Holy Spirit “within us,” whereas before, that Spirit was “upon men and woman.”
“‘The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former,’ saith the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place will I give peace,’ saith the Lord of hosts,” Haggai 2:9.
But everything will pale in comparison to the greatness of that house that we shall reside in on that day. The harvest will be continuous.
The seeds that have been planted in us will have come to such fruition that their yield of planting will overcome the reaping of the fruit. Seed time and harvest will be a continuous thing throughout the ages.
“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be ye glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them,” Isaiah 65:17-23.
Joel 3:18 which says,
“In that day the mountains will drip new wine, and the hills will flow with milk; all the ravines of Judah will run with water. A fountain will flow out of the LORD’s house and will water the valley of acacias.”
