About All Things New Series

We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?

Devotional

Matthew 9:17 NKJV
Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.

Jesus declared that there is no coexistence, no harmony, no partnership between the OLD and the NEW. This is the basis of the NEW Testament, the NEW covenant: the NEW cannot exist within or with the OLD, else the NEW is lost and the OLD is ruined.

That means the new dispensation cannot be held, nor understood, nor received in the old human mind. It must be poured into the NEW spirit, received at the NEW birth. It means the NEW indwelling of the Spirit cannot live in the old human nature.

The OLD must GO!
