The Grapes Are Ripe: Are You Ready?

New Wineskin

When you think about it, it is our experience with God that is central to our Christian faith. For a few thousand years the Jewish people thought that they understood who God was, but when Jesus came he was very different than their theology expected.  Even so, Jesus was exactly, perfectly, and completely in line with what the word of God really said. Only those who allowed the experience of God to modify their theology were able to accept Jesus.

God says,

“Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.”

Matthew 9:17

We must choose a new wine skin

So too, in the coming move of God’s Spirit we will again have to choose whether to trust what we think or to trust our experience with Him.  Initially, we won’t be able to intellectually understand most of what is happening because it is so far removed from our current theology. However, if we will accept our experience in Him, then gradually we will understand how it all fits together. This is why we all need a new wine skin.

Tabernacle Theology is an experience

The theology of tabernacles is borne not out of study, but from experiencing God in new and different ways.  Personally, God did not fit in my old wineskin.  I simply could not accept the reality of God and keep my old ways of thinking.  Knowing my Father’s voice I accepted what He did, even though I could not shoe horn it into my idea of “sound doctrine”.  Only as I accepted God for who He was, allowing Him to fashion a new wineskin within me, did things start to make sense.

Those who will not make a transition to a new wineskin will either sit out this great move of God or persecute it. If we cannot change our point of view, even in the presence of God manifest through His body, we will lose His Spirit.

You’ve come to a place full of new wine

Within this website is a new wineskin that allows you to successfully hold the new wine of The Tabernacle Experience. Even as new revelation increases, the Tabernacles Theology is designed to expand along with it. Of course, no wine skin lasts forever and someday we will all have to discard this also.  However, for now, this new perspective on God’s eternal word provides a starting point from which to accept and understand the experiences we are having.

I invite all those who desire a new wineskin to take what I show you and use it as God leads. The “common” people heard Jesus gladly, and experienced the greatest outpouring of God’s love in human history.  Now it is time for the common people to hear Jesus gladly in our generation.  Come, understand the deeper things of His spirit as we ascend to the mountain of the house of the Lord!

God bless,

Michael King

How can I apply this teaching to my life?

The next time a new thought comes into your mind simply stop and consider it.  Pick it up, handle it, turn it over, examine it.  Think about it carefully.  Ask yourself “if this is true, how could it fit in with what I already know?”  Consider also, “If I change my viewpoint to what I feel God is saying what does that mean?”

Train yourself to hear God

Train yourself to resist the urge to reject any thought that does not line up with your doctrine.  Give yourself time to consider a new revelation or truth.  If, after careful consideration you decide it is not “sound” then discard it. No harm, no foul. Even if you make a mistake have faith that the Holy Spirit will help you sort it out. Frankly, over the years, the Holy Spirit has helped me sort “a lot” of things out.

Finally, give yourself permission to consider new ways of looking at old things.  Allow God to help you see His word a bit differently.  In this way, as God leads and guides, you will align more closely to what His scriptures really say. 

Smith Wigglesworth (ever increasing faith) is a good example of someone who heard God!
