1. New Wine is Associated with the Holy Spirit
Wine is symbolic of the Holy Spirit and Jesus spoke of it in association with the move of God (Matt 9:17) .
In the New Testament, the infilling of the Spirit is compared and contrasted to drinking wine.
‘And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit’ (Eph 5:18 KJVS, see also Acts 2:13)
What God has for us is distinctive for right now; it is a particular anointing for this new era. A new wine from Heaven! But let’s be aware—that which is ‘new’ tastes different. Now He says,
‘You have learned to receive of Me in one way, and now I am coming in another. One that you are not used to, and there may be a time of adjusting. I have a different impartation for you!’
“And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.’’ (Luke 5:39 NIV)
2. New Wine Speaks of Renewed Love and Intimacy with God
‘Take me away with you—let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers. We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine. How right they are to adore you!’ (Song of Songs 1:4 NIV)
There are frequent references to ‘love like wine’ in the Song of Songs.
In the new wine season, the Spirit is wooing you. Hear God say, ‘I am calling you to intimacy with Me. And in that place, I will be your greatest delight’.
