Almighty God is preparing a new wineskin fit for His Kingdom that is perpetually flexible, like gold. This perpetually flexible wineskin will allow the rivers of living waters to be turned into a golden new wine. The essence of the best-saved-for-last golden new wine is GENU-WINE, which is authentic believers flowing in the best our King has to offer – His perfect love.
GENU-WINE is a prophetic term that’s a playful combination of the words “genuine” and “wine.” To be GENUINE is to be sincere and honest; to be free from hypocrisy or pretense; and to actually have the reputed qualities of the character of Christ.
WINE depicts the inner qualities of the grape from which it comes. Buried within it is an essence that can be extracted, fermented and transformed into wine. Therefore, wine reveals one’s innermost self. Please note that wine is made from the pressing of the grapes that abides in the Vine (i.e. Yeshua).
No single grape can make wine. It takes the pressing of the cluster with the addition of another living organism that causes fermentation by virtue of its enzymes. Once God’s people are pressed corporately, His new wine still has to endure the process of active (often seemingly disorderly) development, which is a state of creative agitation.
The Vine Himself brings forth His golden wine of common union (communion). He is the active enzyme – the catalyst – who paid the price on the cross by His blood for His “blood” (family). Therefore, the beautifully fermented beverage poured out to a lost and dying world is His very essence – His own blood – on several levels.
There will be 14-karat, 18-karat, and 24-karat believers in our day. Twenty-four-karat believers will be the cluster of Bridal Grapes from which the Lord’s golden new wine will come. Buried within each one of you is the beautiful essence that will be extracted, fermented, and transformed so you can be poured out to a lost and dying world.
“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14 KJV). My translation of this verse goes something like: The Bridal Call goes out to all of God’s people, but few choose to do what it takes to attain its reality. Bridal intimacy with the King of Kings is a glorious mind-blowing target for anyone who chooses to forsake all but Him.
