The Circumcision of Old Wineskins
In 2015, God is going to do major cleansing in his church and raisie up his revival remnant to stand against apostasy/deception that is rising and will continue to rise.
I believe one of the greatest things that must happen in the church today is for God to wreck church service plans. Leaders are so constricted and are actually in bondage by living under the domination of old wineskin mentalities instead of under the domination of the Spirit's freedom. This does not mean you do not prepare for a meeting, but your preparation needs to be in the secret place with fasting and prayer so that the fire is always burning, not planning services out to a T where everything is written in stone. Seriously? This means that God could change your message on the spot, or God forbid you actually go past an hour and a half for a service or actually stop doing the same routined church lest someone get saved, healed, delivered, and the fires of revival truly break out. Oh no, not that. Not real revival fire, not "mess up my plans, Jesus."
Churchianity kills. When are we going to wake up and change this? When are leaders going to stop just talking with their lips in agreement with these revival ideas and actually make them happen? I hear it all the time where preachers will say they want revival but are not willing to kill the old wineskins or do what they are preaching. With the majority of churches I have visited, whether to minister at or attend, I feel more bondage, religion, and "churchiness" than anything else, especially the power of Christ's deliverance.
It is time for the circumcision of old wineskins. For the love of humanity and all that is holy, there must be the death, burial, and cremation of old wineskins, lest the leaders and congregation remain dead, buried, and turned to dust by the constricting of wineskins. We do not have reivival because we are not willing to pay the price for revival. There are too many old wineskins walking around that are not dead yet. God help us.
