If we learn about God’s purpose in pouring out the early rain and the latter rain, it is to restore the years of life of His people who have lost, damaged or destroyed by the work of various evil spirits (Joel 2: 23-25). But for His people to be able to keep the restoration that God has done, they still have to build an accurate life!
The terms of the early rain and the latter rain are often associated with the servants of God with old grapes and new grapes. But here’s what’s interesting: Regardless of new grapes or old grapes, all of that is only influenced by the mere element of time – both are from grapes! But when God brought His people to live in His Divinity, regardless of all the patterns of the world or the various effects of the work of the Evil One, He provided a different wine, which was not made from grapes so that it could not be called ‘wine old ‘or’ new wine ‘. This is the best wine that the Father has indeed provided for His people in these last days.
John 2:1-10 (NKJV) On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”
Wine always talks about joy and happiness. God provides divine joy and happiness that source is from ‘hear and obey’ – not comes from external things. I believe, as the servants only need to obey every direction God has given them in their lives: Fill the waterpots from the well to the brim, drawn it up and gave it to the master of the feast and miraculously the best wine returns for now!
What we have to do these days is to make sure our spiritual ears are ‘in tune’ with the frequency of heaven, our spiritual eyes still focused on Him and the fulfillment of His plan and also make sure to always have a heart that is responsive and obedient to anything that He speaks; and always enjoy the best wine in our present. Not only for our future, but our present. In the future, He has provided all the best that He has for us His redeemed people. #ILoveGod
