If it is not in your realm of possibilities, you think it is crazy, and anyone who thinks it is possible is crazy. Those of Jesus’ day thought he was crazy or possessed with demons, but those who came to Him, overcame their disbelief, saw miracles, signs and wonders, and those who encountered Him became a miracle, sign and wonder! Those who believed their own thoughts over the NEW EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE right before their eyes, plotted to discredit, trick, and kill him.
Now we each get the dangerous opportunity to either choose to believe and receive salvation AND transformation or suffer the consequences. When you KNOW God is real because you have EXPERIENCED the living Spirit of God heal, deliver and set you free, you go from despairing of life to joyful Life; from blind to seeing the glory; from hearing the lying voice to hearing the Voice of the Shepherd; from a hard defended heart taking offense, blaming, holding grudges, not able to forgive those who hurt or wounded you to forgiveness that sets you FREE INDEED!
The world thought Jesus was crazy; the religious leaders were jealous haters who did not want their cushy positions of power to end; therefore, if we believe and receive and know the Truth and have the confidence and boldness through the Holy Spirit to believe ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE with God, the world AND religious will call you crazy or try to knock you back down to toe the religious line or speak the politically correct script, the world soundbites, toe the global party line, or parrot the world’s wisdom instead of the LIVING ACTIVE Wisdom and Power that transforms!
All are invited to accept the New Wine or stay in bondage to sin, death, disease, disorders, distress, infirmity, affliction, tribulations, religious bondage, division, hatred, bigotry, partiality, conflicts, terror, war, mass shootings, geo-engineered storms and fires, blaming God and human beings made in the image and likeness of God instead of the hidden puppet master with a dark agenda to harm, destroy, kill and steal what has been given FOR ALL: The Messiah, The Christ, The Lamb of God, The Son of God who is the only WAY to reconcile with God to live as a new wineskin carrying the NEW WINE.
ALL are invited; most procrastinate, make excuses, would rather complain, blame and stay in victim mentality; take revenge, mock, deride, put down and stay down in the familiar fear instead of daring to step into the unknown with the known Jesus to KNOW GOD and be known by Him.
We can either believe the world’s interpretation of the bible or the Holy Spirit revelation within the bible–Jesus in every Word–either what life is like APART from Christ in God, or life RECONCILED with Christ in God; BOTH are vividly depicted.
Jesus is the “crushed” grape that transformed into new wine; what had never been seen, heard or experienced before. The New Wine brings healing transformation to those that come to the Spirit and the Bride–the church of the First-Borns from the dead–headed by the First Born from the dead–and take the Spirit River of Water of Life and the Word as Bread of Life to be made flesh in those who receive the New Wine of Christ’s River flowing from heaven out of God, now and eternally, for those who Come to Christ, yoke, and learn to REST in the finished work of the cross and let the Holy Spirit work in and through you! True Yokefellows with Christ!
Jesus paid the FULL PRICE. “He was crushed for our iniquities” (Isaiah 53:5). Christ is the new wine made from the crushed grape of Jesus, and all we have to do is COME through the open Door in his side. “He was pierced for our transgressions.” Woman came out of Adam’s side for the one to become two; the Bride goes back in Christ’s side to be made one with God!
The old wine is religion–the new wine is an invitation into intimate personal relationship with God in Christ. We become a new wineskin when we accept the marriage invitation for God to pour the new wine (Christ Spirit) into our body. “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you…for God’s temple is holy and that temple you are. Let no one deceive himself” (1 Cor 3:16-18). “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? Glorify God IN YOUR BODY” (1 Cor 6:19-20).
The new wine is ascended, glorified Christ Jesus. If you ask Jesus into an old wineskin, it cannot hold it or remain, but if you are saved AND transformed by the Holy Spirit in your spirit and soul and body, you become a new wineskin that can HOLD and CARRY the Presence of God, the glory within, the fire around to be part of the solution instead of remaining stuck in the problems of this world.
