• NEW WINESKIN •

[1] ”The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.“

‭‭[1 Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭12‬ ‭NLT‬‬]


”Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.“

‭‭[Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭4‬-‭5‬ ‭NLT‬‬]


”And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church], [Ps. 8:6.] Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].“

‭‭[Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭22‬-‭23‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

[2] ”Then the disciples of John came to Jesus, inquiring, Why is it that we and the Pharisees fast often, [that is, abstain from food and drink as a religious exercise], but Your disciples do not fast? And Jesus replied to them, Can the wedding guests mourn while the bridegroom is still with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. And no one puts a piece of cloth that has not been shrunk on an old garment, for such a patch tears away from the garment and a worse rent (tear) is made. Neither is new wine put in old wineskins; for if it is, the skins burst and are torn in pieces, and the wine is spilled and the skins are ruined. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved.“

‭‭[Matthew‬ ‭9‬:‭14‬-‭17‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”For I am full of words; the spirit within me constrains me. My breast is as wine that has no vent; like new wineskins, it is ready to burst.“

‭‭[Job‬ ‭32‬:‭18‬-‭19‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

”He told them a proverb also: No one puts a patch from a new garment on an old garment; if he does, he will both tear the new one, and the patch from the new [one] will not match the old [garment].“

‭‭[Luke‬ ‭5‬:‭36‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]

[3] ”While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, Separate now for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.“

‭‭[Acts‬ ‭13‬:‭2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


”And when they had appointed and ordained elders for them in each church with prayer and fasting, they committed them to the Lord in Whom they had come to believe [being full of joyful trust that He is the Christ, the Messiah].“

‭‭[Acts‬ ‭14‬:‭23‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]


”Therefore there arose a controversy between some of John's disciples and a Jew in regard to purification. So they came to John and reported to him, Rabbi, the Man Who was with you on the other side of the Jordan [at the Jordan crossing]–and to Whom you yourself have borne testimony–notice, here He is baptizing too, and everybody is flocking to Him! John answered, A man can receive nothing [he can claim nothing, he can take unto himself nothing] except as it has been granted to him from heaven. [A man must be content to receive the gift which is given him from heaven; there is no other source.] You yourselves are my witnesses [you personally bear me out] that I stated, I am not the Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), but I have [only] been sent before Him [in advance of Him, to be His appointed forerunner, His messenger, His announcer]. [Mal. 3:1.] He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the groomsman who stands by and listens to him rejoices greatly and heartily on account of the bridegroom's voice. This then is my pleasure and joy, and it is now complete. [S. of Sol. 5:1.] He must increase, but I must decrease. [He must grow more prominent; I must grow less so.] [Isa. 9:7.]“

‭‭[John‬ ‭3‬:‭25‬-‭30‬ ‭AMPC‬‬]
