"NEW WINE"
Contributed by Jerral Campfield

LORD HELP US TO BE FULL OF HE NEW WINE OF YOUR Holy Spirit TO DAY

13 Others mocking said, “They are full of new wine.” New wine causing them to be drunk, because of celebrating the new Kings arrival. They are seen by some as fools in Israel that is out of control drunk with stupidity. Note what drugs and wine does to the body; then see what the Wine of the Holy Spirit does to enable us for service in the Kingdom of God?

There is a new Song to express this new wine

Here is the lyrics: 

New Wine
In the crushing, In the pressing 
You are making new wine
In the soil, I now surrender
 You are breaking new ground
So I yield to You and to Your careful hand
When I trust You I don't need to understand
Make me Your vessel 
Make me an offering
Make me whatever You want me to be
I came here with nothing
But all You have given me
Jesus, bring new wine out of me'
Cause where there is new wine
There is new power
There is new freedom
And the kingdom is here
I lay down my old flames
To carry Your new fire today 

Now let look at 9 examples of new wine in the Bible that lets us know the need for the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Enliven Ministries Helen Calder gives a study on New Wine and what it really means I like.

1. New Wine is Associated with the Holy Spirit

Wine is symbolic of the Holy Spirit and Jesus spoke of it in association with the move of God (Matt 9:17) 17 Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins [a]break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”

In the New Testament, the infilling of the Spirit is compared and contrasted to drinking wine.
‘And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit’ (Eph 5:18 KJVS, see also Acts 2:13 others mocking said these men are full of new wine.)

What God has for us is distinctive for right now; it is a particular anointing for this new era. A new wine from Heaven! But let’s be aware—that which is ‘new’ tastes different. Now He says,

‘You have learned to receive of Me in one way, and now I am coming in another. One that you are not used to, and there may be a time of adjusting. I have a different impartation for you!’

“And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.’’ (Luke 5:39 NIV)


2. New Wine Speaks of Renewed Love and Intimacy with God

‘Take me away with you—let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers. We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine. How right they are to adore you!’ (Song of Songs 1:4 NIV)

There are frequent references to ‘love like wine’ in the Song of Songs.

In the new wine season, the Spirit is wooing you. Hear God say, ‘I am calling you to intimacy with Me. And in that place, I will be your greatest delight’.


3. The Trial is Giving Way to Joy

New wine is from grapes that have been through a recent process of crushing. In the Hebrew, the words translated ‘new wine’ mean freshly pressed, squeezed, expelled, and trodden out [2]. The grapes have come through the winepress, where they have been trodden underfoot.

Wine has been produced under pressure! So, if you have felt as though you have been going through a process of crushing, lift up your hands. 

Now is the time of outpouring.


4. New Wine Means it’s Time for the Harvest

In the Bible, new wine is associated with the harvest.
‘Then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil.’(Deuteronomy 11:14. NIV)

A harvest from God is abundant. And He has promised a day of overflow; one in which the harvest and new wine will be plentiful.

“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 all the hills…” Amos 9:13 NIV
‘Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over…’ (Luke 6:38)


5. New Wine Brings Celebration

The seasonal crushing and treading upon the grapes was a time of great joy and celebration for the community (Jeremiah 48:33) and wine is associated with gladness and celebration in Scripture. (Psalm 104:15, John 2)

New wine is also associated with blessing and bounty (Deut 7:12-13, Jer 31:12)


6. Where there is New Wine, New Wineskins are Needed

“Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins…” (Matthew 9:17 NIV)

John the Baptist’s disciples questioned the difference between John’s and Jesus’ approach to fasting. It wasn’t that Jesus didn’t believe in fasting (He taught on fasting) but He was often seen at parties and gatherings, in contrast to John’s austere lifestyle.

And that’s when Jesus’ taught on the difference between old and new wineskins. He was saying:

‘For this period of time, this is what God is doing. But don’t settle even for this—for the time is coming on My Father’s calendar when it will change again!’ (Matt 9:15)

Where there is new wine, there must be a new wineskin; a ‘flexible container’ for the new anointing God has for us. It’s time to ask:

  • What ways, means and methods are now being surpassed?
  • What strategies does God have for us to embrace?
  • What is the Holy Spirit indicating, as we pray about this?

7. New Wine Means God’s Promise is Being Fulfilled

When God promised His people the land of Canaan, He spoke consistently of the new wine. It was ‘part of the package’—something tangible they could look forward to in the Promised Land.

‘So Israel will live in safety; Jacob will dwell secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew.’ (Deut 33:28 NIV)

Isaac gave Jacob the blessing, ‘May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness—an abundance of grain and new wine.’ (Genesis 27:28 NIV) Hear your Father saying,

‘This is My promise to you, being fulfilled. Here I am! That which you have looked forward to, the new wine is here. This is the day your ‘cup runs over’.


8. The New Wine Season is One of Miracles

As at the wedding of Cana, the new wine was miraculous. 

Just as the master of ceremonies at the wedding was astounded, and servants looked on in wonder, people will be amazed at what God is doing.

In the season of new wine, Jesus is glorified!
Together, we rejoice and say, ‘You have kept the good wine until now!’(John 2:10, NKJV)


9. The Source of the New Wine

“Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.”
(Luke 22:20, NKJV)

The ultimate representation of the new wine was revealed by Jesus, as He took the Passover cup of wine, ‘the fruit of the vine’ (v18), in His hand.[3]

It is only through the sacrifice of His blood–shed for our sins–that every other benefit symbolized by new wine in Scripture is made freely available to us.

Such is the grace of God.

Growing in the Spirit of God
Contributed by Jerral Campfield

29 “Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Men and Brethren, we have the power to reason; God who loves us wants us to trust and obey, so we can find peace and satisfaction of being in His family as we abide in Him. 30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, [i]according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne. Here David and Jesus where prophets knowing the power of a prophet and the oath they took was important and to be able to see persecution and acquisitions’ of falsehood caused Him to stand tall as a person seated at the right hand of the Lord to intercede for us.  31 he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. His soul went to hades to take upon Himself the sins of the whole world, but rose victories after three days.  32 This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. Yes even today the Church knows Jesus is not dead, but alive, convicting people of sin that will destroy them if not dealt with.  33 Therefore being exalted [j]to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hearGod when He is exalted gives us more than anything the world can give to empower us for service in the Kingdom of God. God was going to perform a divine promise he made much earlier. Luke 11:13; If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!

Matthew 711 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father : who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

 

Acts 2:34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself:

‘The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
35 Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ’

36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Let everyone know assuredly this truth has now received its full confirmation and we are to publish it. God is alive and what to use his tongue to empower us for service in His Kingdom of Earth. Not proposed as probable, but proposed as absolutely certain. God glorified Him whom they crucified. This aggravates their wickedness they did to Jesus. Yet still today Jesus is both Lord and Christ and is here now going to give them the third part of the trinity the Holy Spirit to give them unction or power to speak the truth Jesus is alive.

37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Those who heard this new gospel were now questioning what should they do? What are we asking as people is very important for we are not asking as a Church for more freedom so we can do what we want; No, what does God want us to do? In order to do it we need a motivation, a purpose, a reason, or a ministry to give them the empowerment needed for such a task as going into all the world and preaching the Gospel; Jesus saves not us as people but God as the creator of all. Remember just a few day back they all fled and where in hiding until the Lord appeared to them for 40 day that revolutionized their lives. Here they are again confronted with something that was totally amazing. Here Peter had told them they had a hand in His death and are not mad, but thinking not of imagination times the vividness they witnessed, but the reality of who God is and what he is able to do. They were pricked in their hearts, cut in their hearts, know they were part of the problem. Their hearts are now awakened and their conscience touched by the Spirit of God. The word was piercing their minds heart.  They were certainly sinners, undone and feeling uneasy as their hearts are rent. A prick in the heart is mortal, and under a commotion of death, dying. This is what happens many times to people in jail as I was teaching life skills and seeing men and women cry as they heard and saw what the truth is able to do in setting them free of what sin has done to them. Here they are men and brethren gathered here showing honor and appreciation to Peter as Peter looks at them with the love of the Lord. As a preacher of the Gospel and as minister we are looked at as spiritual physicians and need to be led by the Lord to give hope, faith and love, not condemnation. There is no way people are happy in themselves regardless of how successful they become. Many People are lost and blinded by success and blind for they do not want to do what is right, but bent on destroying others and enjoying it. So here they are looking forward to what can I do to escape this misery. Those that are convicted of sin are soon glad for peace and pardon. 

38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the [k]remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Sinners need to be convinced they are wrong or they are sinners but need to be encourage to stop and turn to the Lord for assurance of the chains being off. They are no long bound up or addicted but sent free to say no to sexual activities our side of marriage, no to drug and alcohol. No to gambling, no to lying and cheating, No to serving other God. Repenting is accepting a new way, truth and life that bring goodwill and peace to all. Put away the guilt of crucifying the Lord so your other sins can be forgiven as will. Repent, is to change you mind, your ways, your bend so you pure and holy becoming more and more like the Lord. Be Baptized every one of you is a new doctrine of Christ for the Church. Renounce your infidelity as being lost and accept forgiveness is impressed on all who come to the Lord. 11:15 That is those who repent and believe are welcomed to be baptized.  This is accepting God grace. Israel was baptized unto Moses in the camp when they passed through the cloud and the sea 1 Corinthians 10:1,2 now it is personally Colossians 1:28. All this give assurance of remission of sins, repent. And not be ruined but be baptized. And this is the truth that justifies us in Christ as never sinning.  You’re a candidate to receive the Holy Spirit as well for it seals the truth of the Gospel, you can be full of the Holy Spirit to become justified and Sanctified. It not only for you, but your children. In the Old Testament the Son was circumcised at eight years of age and it seems that people that accept the Lord are able to think and have the ability to choose what is good and right. That is the reason we do not baptize infants for they do not understand yet. Remember it is the Lord that calls us to Himself.

39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” Thank the Lord He knew what man needed in order to establish the Church on a firm foundation.
