IN 2019 NEW WINE MIRACLES WILL BE SEEN – OF “UNKNOWN” ORIGIN
Mid-summer 2018 I experienced a miracle which the Lord did not allow me to share publicly until now, because He says that NOW is the year for the birthing of new wine miracles. This was the first miracle that Jesus performed. This will be a year of birthing firsts, where the usual ways of doing things will not work and transformational miracles of such magnitude will occur that you be in awe, wonder and the fear of the Lord at His greatness and sovereignty.
In the account in John 2:1-11, the water is turned into wine…wine of which the governor of the feast “knew not whence it was (but the servants which drew the water knew).” Thayer’s Greek Lexicon describes the phrase “knew not whence it was” as meaning not knowing the origin, or source, the author or giver. The governor of the feast was one who able to discern by taste, sight and smell which vineyard produced the wine. This was no ordinary wine. Holy Spirit showed me that the miracles that will be seen this year will be such that there will be no possible source but GOD!
THIS WILL BE A YEAR OF TRANSFORMATIONS – SUDDEN, UNEXPECTED AND INEXPLAINABLE MIRACLES DISPLAYING GOD’S GOODNESS AND GREATNESS!
Water becoming wine was a transformational miracle showing God’s greatness and goodness, and that is what I experienced as well. I love gardening, especially plants that are fragrant. Some years ago I purchased a lily at a garden club sale. It was not blooming and did not state what the color would be or if it was fragrant. I took a chance, hoping for my favorite type – the pink oriental lilies with exceptional fragrance. When it bloomed, I was disappointed. It was orange with black stripes and no fragrance. Nonetheless, I kept it and it flourished, multiplying each year. A few years later, I purchased a fragrant pink oriental lily. Mid-summer 2018 I had a total of six pots of lilies – four orange non-fragrant and two fragrant pink. When they bloomed, all six were pink oriental lilies…not an orange one in the bunch, and all fragrant. How? Why? The ONLY explanation I had was that God knew what I liked and blessed me with this miraculous, extravagant, unexplainable (ONLY GOD) miracle!!! I am clearly hearing that this is a year where God is going to move in sudden and unexpected ways, showing off His goodness and greatness, where it will be said, “Only God can do that!”
As I was studying the water to wine miracle and seeking the Lord’s wisdom, He gave me revelation for the year 2019.
THIRD DAY MIRACLES
“And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.” (John 2:1-2 KJV)
The water to wine miracle occurred on the third day of Jesus’s ministry. Third day represents resurrection and birthing of the spiritual. There were three who witnessed Jesus in glory on the mount of transfiguration, Jesus was raised on the third day, the three members of the Godhead, Jesus began His ministry at 30 and completed it in three years. This is a nine year, which is three threes. Holy Spirit impressed upon me the account of Abraham experiencing a visitation where three is significant. It is listed in a later section.
RELATIONSHIPS WILL SHIFT
“And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” (John 2:3-5 KJV)
This will be a year where relationships will shift, aligned into Kingdom order for the purposes of God to come forth. I believe that Jesus saw that Mary was perceiving the spiritual shift that had occurred at His baptism, and that her request was not coming from her role as His mother. I believe that His saying, “mine hour is not yet come” was a testing of that, and her response to direct the servants, “Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it” confirmed that this was, in fact, the case. What I am hearing is that in this year the anointing that is within us is going to be pulled upon in unexpected situations and by unexpected people.
This will be a year where we cannot rely on what we know, what has worked in the past, but only on what we hear by the Spirit of God as He relays the words of instruction that will birth the miraculous. We will need to stay alert to the divine opportunities that are orchestrated for the goodness of God to be poured out. To see transformational miracles such as water to wine, we must be quick to respond when we perceive the Spirit of God moving. Jesus was quick to respond to the divine opportunity presented, even though He stated, “mine hour is not yet come.” This year there will be many divine “interruptions” requiring a quick response.
The first instance of the word “quickly” in the Bible is Gen. 18:6, where Abraham was resting in his tent at noon and saw three men appear. He had recently received the word from the Lord that Sarah would bear a son according to promise. Abraham was alert spiritually even though he was resting at noonday.
When the three men appeared to him (another “three”) he knew it was the Lord! His spirit was quickened at the appearance of the three and he ran to meet them, asking them to stay. He asked Sarah to quickly make a meal for them. The visit resulted in the Lord confirming to Abraham the word he had received and declaring the same to Sarah. “Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” (Genesis 18:14 KJV)
This is a year where many of the words you have received will be birthed. You will hear Holy Spirit repeating over and over, “Is any thing too hard for the LORD?” Be encouraged, be alert, be ready to move quickly.
“His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” (John 2:5 KJV)
Jesus Himself tells us that He only did what He saw the Father doing (Jn. 5:19) and only spoke what the Father said (Jn. 8:38, 12:49-50, 14:10). He and the Father are One, and Jesus prayed in John 17:21-23 that we would be One with them, in the glory. Saul lost the Kingdom through incomplete obedience (1 Sam. 15). This is a year where kingdoms will fall and the Kingdom of God will rise in their place. The Lord is shifting kingdoms and bringing order – those with a heart after His will rise into positions of authority.
PURE VESSELS – “And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.” (John 2:6 KJV)
Over the last months, Holy Spirit has been strongly emphasizing the need for purity, for true holiness – recognizing that we are created for God and His purposes, set apart and sanctified by the Holy Spirit. When we recognize that we are His and live alert to His presence, others will see the Lord in their midst. These six vessels were consecrated for the tradition of pouring out water for the washing of hands and feet as people entered from the street or they prepared to eat. These six vessels represent us as vessels through which rivers of living water flow out to others. We are set apart for the Master’s use, washed by the water of the Word of God.
A Recent Shocking Dream – “I will have a White Christmas this year.”
In the process of writing this word, I was hesitating about emphasizing purity in relation to the new wine. I then had a very strange dream where the Lord spoke clearly to me that I was to include it. In the dream, there was a very robust chef, ruddy cheeked, curlicue hair on top of his bald head, checkered shirt, holding a silver platter. In the middle of the platter was a head. I heard clearly, “I will have a White Christmas this year.” I immediately asked the Lord, “What do you mean, you don’t even celebrate Christmas.” He said, no, but you do, and so does most of My Church. And I want you to get up right now (it was 3:30 a.m.) and write about it, and knew you would need a shocking dream in order to do it.” This is what I heard by the Holy Spirit:
“You will see the false beheaded this year; I am purifying My church and Jesus will now be the Head. I am removing the leaven brought in through worship of the queen of heaven (Jer. 7:18; 44:17-19, 25). The sword of My word will lay her low; no more my people tossing to and fro. Many held captive will be set free; new wine will pour forth and many will see.
My new wine will be sweet, having been purified, emptied from vessel to vessel, all sediment removed, no longer leaving a taste of “self.” (Jer. 48:11) Others who drink will taste of Me alone and see that I am good.
I am serving the best wine, stored up for these last days. Even as John the Baptist was beheaded for exposing sin (Matt. 14:11) the blood of my prophets will be avenged. I am stirring up a Holy fire among My prophets and they will proclaim with boldness the truth and slay the enemy with the sword of My word. Jezebel caused Elijah to run from her threats of death. My prophets are being set free from fear, for MY voice will be loud in their ear. The blood of pure wine will be served this year. For there is a pressing that has been and will be even more, for there is great reward in store. I am pouring out visions from my throne that will keep your eyes on Me alone, seek me when under the pressure you groan.
My wine will pour forth and many will drink, in amazement they will think, “What is the origin of this new wine? There has never been a taste so fine.” My Bride will proclaim the Bridegroom My Son, and you will see My Glory come.””
FILLED TO OVERFLOWING
“Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.” (John 2:7-8 KJV)
The water was turned to wine after the vessels were filled to the brim with water. We need to be full of the Holy Spirit, overflowing with living water. As we are pressed upon, sensitive to the movement of the Spirit, the demand of faith by others will cause the Spirit of God to flow from us and new wine miracles will be birthed! I am hearing, “Even as the woman with the issue of blood pressed in to My Son and virtue poured forth from Him, in the days to come I am stirring faith to rise that will cause many to open their eyes. My people will be pressed and look to Me, and My spirit will flow forth as new wine, you will see.”
SPONTANEITY AND FREEDOM
This will be a year where religiosity and rules will be transformed into spontaneous, inexplainable new wine miracles bringing Glory to God. This year we will experience freedom as never before, relying not on our own understanding, experience or even what we have seen others do. Miracles will come forth as we are simply living life, even in the commonplace (gardening) where God will show you how much He loves you, and build your faith for the miraculous. The water to wine miracle happened at a time when Jesus and His five disciples were simply attending the wedding, they had no special role. There is freedom in enjoying life and trusting God to move when He wants, simply being available and ready.
THE CHURCH IS LEAVING THE BUILDING
The new wine is found in the cluster (Is. 65:8). I am hearing that many more miracles will happen in gatherings outside of the “church building” than in. The church is leaving the building! Many house gatherings will form and in the small gatherings true intimacy and growth will occur. New wine miracles will be a natural result of needs arising and God supplying.
THE BRIDEGROOM WILL BE CALLED
“When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,” (John 2:9 KJV)
When the world sees these new wine miracles manifest, “and knew not whence it was,” there will be a great acceleration and increase of harvest as the LORD is seen as the origin of these miracles. Many will call upon the Name of the Lord. I have been hearing for months that there will be showdowns in the spirit as with Elijah and the prophets of Baal, where the fire miraculously burned the drenched wood to show the power of the One True God! This is a year where God’s power will put His enemies to shame, and He will receive all the fame due His Name!
GLORY OF GOD WILL BE MANIFEST
“This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.” (John 2:11 KJV)
This will be a year where extraordinary, spontaneous and unexplainable miracles will bring forth the Glory of God through sons and daughters stepping out as their spirits are stirred in unexpected situations. I hear, “My purified vessels have desired the beauty of My holiness. They turn away from the trappings of the world, and through them My glory will be unfurled. Their desire is for Me alone; through them new wine will pour from My throne.”
