I was privileged, in 1958, to be in the presence of a major
visitation in which there was visible glory – visible
to the physical eye - glory visibly moving mightily. There
was a fountain of “new wine” that was there. You
could see it in the spirit and enter into it. This fountain
of new wine was one hundred proof. (proof - standard strength
or quality or alcoholic content OR spirit content!) (could
you describe what you saw in the spirit?)
We have touches of it today that are maybe only about ten,
fifteen or twenty proof. It affects you. I am probably functioning
at ten or fifteen proof and I am saying, Lord, I want the
hundred proof. I am believing Lord to go beyond where I am.
I desire that impartation.
“New wine” – “Be not drunk with wine
where in is excess,” that is the worldly counterfeit.
But there is a real “wine of the Spirit.” The
real wine of the Spirit releases us from our human inhibitions.
It actually produces a release in us and gives us a boldness
and an ability to function.
It is a divine enabling, an empowering that releases us.
It is very real and very powerful and it abides. When you
have been touched by it, it stays with you, it lingers, and
it abides. Once you have received it, you can impart it to
others, because you will have it within you.
What we are getting today is about (less than what is available)ten
to twenty proof. I was blessed and experienced (the fullness)one
hundred proof. It removes the inhibitions, the fears, and
enables us with a boldness to function, to move, and that
is the purpose of it. It has a purpose - it will take us beyond
the human limitations that we all feel.
I believe that this world is going to receive a witness of
the Lord beyond anything they have ever seen. There is a last
day visitation, an empowering and instead of the Lord literally
sneaking the church out, I believe that He is going to empower
a body of people that He can trust with that – that
will not exploit to their own advantage, but it is going to
become a witness to the world beyond anything the world has
ever seen. That hasn’t happened yet. It is going to.
I believe that we are living in the time when we are being
made ready – when the capacity for that is being developed
Therefore, it is very important that we feel, that we are
touched by the presence of God. Every time we are touched
by the presence of God, we receive some new wine. We are touched,
we become more sensitive, and more open. It releases a desire
within us – our capacity is enlarged and we are drawing
closer and the door is beginning to open wider.
