Today’s slice of the bread of life, the Word of God, comes from Luke 5:36-39:
Then Jesus gave them this illustration: “No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and uses it to patch an old garment. For then the new garment would be torn, and the patch wouldn’t even match the old garment. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. The new wine would burst the old skins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be put into new wineskins. But no one who drinks the old wine seems to want the fresh and the new. ‘The old is better,’ they say. ‘The new wine will burst the bottles—these old bottles would not be able to stand the fermentation of the new wine, as the old sewing would be apt to give way.'”
It is scarcely necessary to remark that the eastern bottles are made of skins; generally those of goats. I had never realized until this morning that not only would the wine be lost – but the wine skins themselves would be ruined.
Well then, if we, the church, try to put any new instructions from God involving our present situation in our old comfortable way of churching, not only will we lose the grace of His new instruction to help us with our predicament, but the wine skin – that is, the Church Universal – may be ruined. Ouch! Sounds like we best be open-minded and not think we know it all.
Can we even acknowledge that our old wine skins, our old way of churching has become dry and hardened and may not be able to expand with the revelation of what God is doing in this season? Perhaps we need to let our wine skins be oiled with that which the Lord is wanting to provide.
There is a shaking coming. In fact, this leads me to mention the title of today’s message: “God is Going to Shake the Devil out of the Church“. When that happens we will find unity among us. Ooooo, I’m sorry, pull in your toes, I may be about to step on them.
Did you know that the angel of this nation is called “Unity,” or “Union.” If you study George Washington’s prophecy, you see that this is the angel that appeared to him in his darkest hour. And there were some miraculous things that took place with George Washington. His enemies in battle began to believe that he couldn’t be killed because they would shoot at him, they would shoot the horses out from underneath him, and everything else, but he had a Divine hand on him. I believe that Divine hand is coming again to America, and America is being called to come into a union.
There is coming a civil war in the Church, and each and every one of us are going to have a civil war inside of you. It is going to be the gray matter, the rebel, against the blue. We have tried to bring a unity in our minds for a few hundred years in America. There has not been any unity. There can only be a unity when we become united in the Spirit.
If I say something that offends you, don’t blow me off. God is calling for our minds to become a gold mind, and being offended is not an option. A gold mind is going to have what we need when we need it…
