While worshipping with my German family the Lord suddenly and
with great force began speaking to my spirit. I wrote down His words verbatim on a piece of scrap paper I found in
my Bible. The bold type below contains the words I heard, while the
italicized words are my sense of amplification as the Holy Spirit
gave me understanding.
It is my observation that in many places the hunger for a greater
expression of the Life of God through His church has led some to
attempt to create, build, fashion, craft and organize what only He
Himself can and will create.
This is what I heard in June, 2006:
“Let Go! Let Go, my church! It is not up to you to find a place and
a way for My New wine!” –
Man has never “found his way.” All we like sheep have gone astray,
we have turned, everyone, to his own way.
There is a way that seems right to us, but the end of that way is
the way of death. God has opened a “new and living way” for us to
have access to His presence through Jesus.
So we will never “find a place and a way” for His wine to flow and
to be contained. It is only God Who can show us that way.
“You will not create, neither will you touch My wineskin because it
is holy unto God.”
Man has always attempted to usurp the position and the place of God.
Yet He alone is Creator. Satan has never created anything, but
rather the devil imitates. Man is the created one – the creation.
God is the Creator.
We are wasting our time and energy trying to “invent” the church of
the twenty-first century. Man destroys whatever he touches. The best
efforts of the best minds have always given us “religion.” We must
stand back, take our hands off, and watch to see what God in His
heaven will create for us.
Further, we must not “touch” His wineskin. Uzzah put out his hand to
touch – to steady the ox-cart containing the ark of God’s presence –
and died for his effort. Let us refuse to touch that which is
Divine, Holy and uniquely God’s church.
“My wine is the Blood of My Son that is shed for your lives. It is
My wineskin and not your wineskin that will contain
the wine of Blessing and Refreshing and glory and life.”
God has promised blessing, refreshing, glory and life to those who
will recognize that it is His church, and not our church. We must
continually remind ourselves of Who it is Who holds the title deed
of the church. It is His, not ours. If we can remain in this
context, the outflow of our relationship with Him will be Blessing,
Refreshing, Glory and Life.
go, My church and I will do for you what you can never do for
