“A New Wineskin for a New Anointing”
May 2009

 

When the Israelites were in the desert during their 40 year journey, when “The Cloud” moved, His people moved with the cloud.

And although we serve Him who is the same yesterday, today and forever, He is a creative Being. His presence brings either life or death. Once creation begins, be in on the earth  (with plants, animals and all living things) or in the heavens (as the Universe which is expanding at the speed of light) and once these things are set in to motion, they will continue until He says no more.

Can God still be God when everything He touches changes with the newness of life or death? Of course!
Does God actually change His mind concerning a thing? Yes, according to the Scriptures.

Would God’s creativity in doing something differently mean that He is not the same yesterday, today and forever, of course not!

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept,
Line upon line, line upon line,
Here a little, there a little.” Isaiah 28:10

What we fail to see many times is our God has the ultimate and perfected plan, one in which does not have various other plans (just in case) nor does His plan change daily with our levels of belief or obedience.

Whenever we hear that six letter word, “change” we almost invariably want to run and hide (like Jonah) knowing that any change will require more energy, greater effort and initial failure before success.

Drastic sea changes are coming upon the Body of Messiah. They will not come easily or with victory in the beginning. The Spirit of the Lord has always been in the process of moving us up to the next level!

Field promotions are now being made, because those who have been faithful with little are about to become rulers over much. However with our “New levels” and new assignments comes new devils and they will come to resist your efforts and His purposes that He has set before you.

The hardship we have endured and persevered has brought forth a maturity and is working Sav la naute (patience) and is revealing an understanding that brings preparation for the next step forward.

And because of making right confessions, speaking the things we know to be truth and agreeing with Him, we place ourselves in right alignment to His intended purposes. We are learning to yield to the Spirit and join ourselves to Him in such a way that our prayers will not be hindered.

The New Anointing that is coming will require a place to rest. Through the confessions, declarations, repentance and times of refreshing we are creating and establishing a Structure for a New Wineskin. And this will hold and be a reservoir for the new work and new unction of the Holy Spirit to work.

A New anointing is coming upon the Saints!
An anointing that enables us to accomplish all that has been prepared, and it will be birthed by the Spirit.

At first it will not necessarily appear or feel like an anointing but will be more subtle and will differ upon each one who loves the Lord and who is ready to sacrifice himself in life or death for kingdom purposes.

For some, the anointing will bring Spirit ordained ideas that will enable them to create great wealth. For others, greater anointing will come upon their musical or artistic abilities. Others, their teachings will be nothing less than revelation from heaven. His Body, finally will have one conductor, the Holy Spirit!

A “Holy Boldness” will come! When Love is present, fear will flee!
Humility will be prevalent within the Body and will turn away the wrath of many and expedite and usher peace in to inflammatory situations.

Love will be exercised Not just to other believers but to all men.
For finally the world will know us because of our Love. ”For God so loved the World.”
If we love only those who love us, what reward should we expect?

I once heard the Spirit say,
”If you are Teachable, you can have it all!”

The True Church of Jesus Christ, will be teachable!
We will not be puffed up with knowledge, but like the early church, each one will value and speak and act as though every other believer has greater worth than ourselves. Selfishness will become a thing of the past just as we finished with the childish things.

Great things are about to fall upon the ones who are desperate for Him. We will put on Purity and come to Unity.

So Saints, be of good courage and remain in His presence, knowing that all of your hard fought battles have brought you wisdom and understanding, strength and desire to engage the enemy and a knowing that in everything, “He is faithful and watchful in performing His Word and work in you!”

One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. Psalm 27:4
