Reminiscences of an Old Guard during a Visit to the Wine Cellar
“Sipping from The Old Wineskin , there’s nothing like it…ahhhh. Nothing changes; there’s the old familiar taste that I grew up on. I like the look of it, and I love the taste of it… that old vintage…I remember the first day I tasted it. I was young and it made me feel so revolutionary and somehow different from all those silly systemites around me. They couldn’t see what I saw after I’d taken a good swig.
Now what is this I see on the shelf, a shiny new bottle with the year 2022 on the label? I wonder who put this here? It wasn’t the old winemaker David; he’s long gone, yet right here on the label it says produced at David’s Winery…hmmm.”
Old guard takes a sip…
”It’s fruity, has some tang to it, kind of bites the tongue, too fresh I’d say, bottled too early, must be some new hand working at the winery. Don’t think I like it, where’s that old vintage? Oh yes, here’s some. Now this is what I call wine. Wow! Look at the date on this bottle, 1976…ahhhh, that was a great year, a vintage year. Humph, don’t know where that new winemaker got his certificate; imagine calling himself a wine maker… winemaker indeed.”
Sips the deep red 1976 and burps…
“Well, whilst I’m here I may as well take a look at what else they have in the cellar…Let me see, oh yes, this looks like an interesting year…2005. I wonder…hmmm. I see that the seal has been removed and the cork’s only halfway inserted and…that’s interesting…let me see what the label says.”
“Art of War Part 5”…“It all comes down to how you receive My NewWine-via the GNs, and via your live contact with Me moment by moment. Whether you are thirstily drinking it in and accommodating it within your spirit, or whether you are rejecting it-even in part-and aren’t able to readily receive it. It depends on whether you are moving ahead into the new ways that I am giving you, or whether you are clinging to the old ways-even old ways that once came from Me.”
“(Jesus: ) No, it’s not that you should always prefer the new wine over the old. There is lots of wonderful vintage wine which is just as powerful and true today as ever. But you should not be stuck only on the old wine, without drinking in the new wine. If all you want to read and absorb is the old wine, then you’re going to get left behind in the past. You need both new wine and old.”
“Sometimes My New Wine is sweet to your taste and easy to receive‚ but that’s not always the case. It’s because the Enemy fights you, and he’s continuously trying to get you to be an old bottle, to harden your wineskin, to make you feel like rejecting the New Wine of My Spirit when it’s uncomfortable to receive. So he uses sensitivity in this way-either by making you feel sensitive to the Word and thus not willing to apply it to your life, or making you sensitive to what others say so that you don’t accept their counsel or correction or instruction, and even making you too sensitive to receive My fresh Words in prophecy.”
“If you want to be new bottles, you will be, as you keep yielding, as you receive the fresh flow of New Wine with open and receptive hearts, and as you yield to the New Wine Maker.”
“Be an avid lover and believer of My New Wine. My Words will keep you new, if you live them and obey them. Keep up with the New Wine. Keep up with the revelations of My Spirit. Make it a priority to study them and live them.”
Old guard stops reading label…
”Wow, that was a mouthful…but it did get me thinking about that winery down along old World Service Road. What ever happened to that place…is it under new ownership? I heard that it just closed its doors one day and moved away. They say there’s a timeworn sign on the old place that reads “Reboot.” I wonder if that has got anything to do with making new wine. Okay let me see… what else is on this shelf? Oh here’s one, good year too…1995. Amazing, the label has the ingredients written on it”
…old guard reads…
“Getting accustomed to the new wine 8grams
Ungrateful attitudes towards prophecy 10grams
Jewelry House prophecy 11grams
Old and new wine; grass and grain prophecy 12grams
Open your hearts with faith and receive the new wine 13grams
I might just take this one home with me and sit down over dinner with wifey and pop the cork. Wait on; what’s this say under the list of ingredients?”
“For me this `new wine’ straight from Heaven is the most feeding, encouraging, convicting, inspiring, challenging, beautiful and Heaven-sent yet! It’s wonderful to have Dad still speaking to us through these prophecies.”
“Ha, would you look at that! The venerable old wine maker himself is still at it…and it looks like he did move shop…all the way to the Heavenly City. God bless his soul…and it says he’s still whipping up some spirit-filled brews…amazing!”
Old guard checks his watch.
“Oh dear, look at the time…is it that late? Gosh, time slips by when you’re reminiscing. Let me grab one more bottle before I leave. I say, this wine cellar is a fascinating place. I’ll make a quick choice. Maybe there’s a good vintage closer to the door, some new stuff that’s just been bottled…haha. Listen to me, talking about new wine now. Maybe it was that cocktail I threw back when I first arrived…better check the label before running home. Oh goodness, what on earth is this? …another of those 2022 bottles. Perhaps I could get use to the flavor. What does it say here?…fascinating indeed…How to make your own wine…by the Master Wine Maker Himself. It says bottled on March 04, 2022—The Keys Are Your Wilderness…What a curious title.”
“My loved one, you who keep My Word close to your heart will be kept in the hour of tribulation. All those faithful Children of David, who have held closely to the revelations I’ve sent down the pipe to David, Maria, Peter and now you in the form of new…new wine will see a parting of the veil and will pass through the fire but not be burnt. Hold that fast which thou hast that no man take thy crown. You are My dearest ones right in the center of My will…you have the Key of prophecy…you are listening to the My still small voice, you have your Key to the wilderness of My spirit in your hand and all you have to do is obey and do exactly what I tell you to do in those hours that you spend with Me in our bed of love. Do not fear what is coming upon the children of men, for you live in another dimension. Call on the keys of 5th dimension when things look bleak to the carnal mind, and I will be there instantly to direct your next and every step. Obedience to My will is what has kept you safe all these years, and your obedience to My will through the voice of My Word will continue to do so even unto the time of the End. I will not fail to show you what your next step is…willing to go willing to stay…remember? I love you and am waiting expectantly for our next rendezvous xxxxxxx”
“Wow that was spicy! What is this at the very bottom of the label? It’s the logo; now that’s a funny place to put it…’Reboot your life; drink new wine today’. Oh yes, how could I have forgotten, the Keys of prophecy. I have one in my office desk drawer. Fancy forgetting it was there. Silly me, seems I’m losing my memory. I think I’ll take a look at it after dinner.”
Looking at the label again.
“This label is fascinating…Hey lookie here…a message from David himself…I wonder what he has to say… recent too, February 2022.
“Hello son, the words of life are still flowing. The new wine is pouring down, and it takes a big cup of faith to hold it all. We are pouring down some pretty interesting revelations of late. The Alice series has some deep truths and hidden mysteries that have taken a lot of faith to see. The enemy is fighting this one just as much as he fights all the new wine that is passing through your channel. Don’t allow him an inch. It is in his interest to delay or even stop this wine going out.”
Old guard stops reading then stares into the bottle of new, new wine, reminiscing about the past few years, then comes back from some past memory…
“Oh my, the time, yikes!!! The wife will have my neck…I know, I’ll slip this bottle of new wine into the shopping basket and surprise her (snickers)
Funny but I was just reminded of that bottle of liqueur I drank many years ago called Revolutionary Sex. Hmmm…I wonder what’s inside this stuff…maybe it will do the trick!”
“So don’t get so stuck with either a name, a method or a message that you can’t change from day to day with whatever God has for you that’s new, new wine, new message, new method, new way! Because if you do, you’re sunk or you’re broken because you’ve become an old bottle!” (DO #251)
“In humility and desperation, call on the keys of change, regeneration and deliverance to make you a new man-one who loves Me and My Word above all, and who is an embodiment of the new weapons and moves of My Spirit.”
