Further to my reference in the previous post to Catch The Fire in Farnborough, Hants, the senior leader Revd Christopher Bird aims to have its official launch in September. Before then, a ‘thought for the day’ and a weekly teaching from Christopher at 7pm every Sunday is ‘live’ on its Facebook page.
Nina and I were invited to join its second weekly video meeting last Wednesday evening and got online just in time to hear Christopher outlining this new church’s DNA, viz:
- committed to welcoming the presence of God;
- being disciples who make disciples, and
- cultivating a true sense of family.
On the first point he taught about the meaning of and necessity for new wineskins and how this applies to churches, and as an example referred to Moses’ encounter of the Glory of God. On being told to “Lead these people” Moses reacted that he’d not been told whom God would send with him and quoting the Lord, “I know you by name and You have found favour with me” asked, “If you are pleased with me, teach me Your ways so I may know You and continue to find favour with You…” Exodus 33:13 NIV).
The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.” The rest of the passage is conversation about God’s Presence, and then He showed Moses His Glory!!!
My finger remained in those pages when we turned to the Gospels but I got impelled to go back and noted Exod 34:10 as being what the Lord is promising us today!
The Covenant Renewed
10 And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do [a]marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.” [NKJV courtesy Biblegateway.com]
SO, this morning I find that Veronika West has published a confirmation on her ministry Facebook(emphases mine):
‘Yesterday I heard the Lord say so clearly,
“WATCH! FOR NEW WINE SKIN MINISTRIES ARE NOW BEING BIRTHED IN THE EARTH”…!
‘When I heard the Spirit say those words, I saw a NEW BREED OF MINISTRIES BEING BIRTHED in this time of RESET…,I saw the words ‘DYNAMIC’ AND ‘DUNAMIS POWER.’…THEN I SAW DIVINE EXPLOSIONS WHICH WERE TAKING PLACE IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT….AND THEN I HEARD THE SOUND OF MANY RUSHING WATERS….AND I COULD SEE WELLS OPENING UP ACROSS THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH…!
‘THESE ARE THE WELLS OF REVIVAL…BURSTING FORTH UPON THE NATIONS WITH THE NEW WINE OF THE SPIRIT AND WITH THE DUNAMIS POWER OF GOD…!
‘Ps; I will let you into a conversation I had with a dear friend who shared with me that the Lord had given her the word “FUNNEL” while she was praying…and so she asked if I had some insights…and this was what the Lord showed me;
“The funnel is so interesting, I thought straight away of the NARROW PLACE…a PLACE OF BIRTHING….! Also A TIME WHERE THINGS ARE BEING BROUGHT TO A HEAD/POINT!!! A place of DIVINE CONVERGENCE…!
‘A Time of FRESH INFILLING, OUTPOURING AND RELEASE. I hear the words, “A SEASON OF DIVINE DECANTING”… gradually pour (wine, port, or another liquid) from one container into another, typically in order to separate out sediment.
‘Often a FUNNEL IS USED TO DECANT WINE….! I believe this is a TIME OF DIVINE SEPARATION, THE SEDIMENT AND IMPURITIES ARE BEING REMOVED….’NO MORE MIXTURE’…EVERYTHING DEFILED AND UNCLEAN MUST BE DONE AWAY WITH.
‘I SEE A HOLY PURITY COMING FORTH IN THE EARTH….A PURE AND UNDEFILED MOVEMENT OF THE SPIRIT THAT WILL REDEFINE MINISTRIES FOREVER…HE IS REPOSITIONING AND REALIGNING THOSE WHO HAVE ‘CLEAN HANDS AND PURE HEARTS’ WITH ‘A NEW WINE SKIN MOVEMENT’ THAT IS BEING BIRTHED IN THE EARTH.
‘There is a “DIVINE DECANTING TAKING PLACE, A DIVINE EXCHANGE…AND A SUPERNATURAL TRANSFORMATION”…!!
‘I hear the words, “NEW WINESKIN MINISTRIES ARE NOW BEING BIRTHED IN THE EARTH …!
‘If you have not already read this powerful dream please prayerfully do so, it speaks to the ‘OIL OF HEALING AND THE VINEYARDS OF NEW WINE’;
