So those that do not accept this absurdly unbiblical teaching will not be able to hold the new wine? Right; to that I say blue sleeps faster than Tuesday. She claims that our wineskins will be like bag with holes in them and then vaguely references Haggai 1:6; desperately hoping you do not actually go read this passage:

In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came by the hand of Haggai the prophet to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest: "Thus says the Lord of hosts: These people say the time has not yet come to rebuild the house of the Lord." Then the word of the Lord came by the hand of Haggai the prophet, "Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies in ruins? Now, therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes. -- Haggai 1: 1-6 (ESV)

Let's do the work of a Berean beloved. What is happening here in Haggai 1? Is this a descriptive text, telling us an historical story; or is it prescriptive -- instructing us how to behave today? The context reveals that this is a historical narrative explaining to us that God was not pleased with his people returning to Jerusalem after their captivity in Babylon. Despite their constant idolatry and worshipping other gods, the one true God relented of the exile in Babylon and allowed them to return home. There they set themselves up in paneled houses, rebuilding their own lives but not the temple. God then prophesies through the mouth of Haggai that they will never have enough until they rebuild the house of the Lord. They will eat and still be hungry. They will drink and still thirst. They will clothe themselves yet remain cold. They will lose money as if there were holes in the bag they keep it in.

So Jennifer Leclaire took this verse from Haggai, which had nothing to do with the matter she was speaking on, and pretended that she was providing biblical support for her nonsense. You can't hold the new wine! It will be like there were holes in your bag -- just see Haggai 1:6! To those who do not do the work of a Berean they may go to Haggai 1:6 and see that indeed it speaks about holes in a bag. And examination of the context however reveals that Jennifer Leclaire is either willfully false or should not be dividing the Word of God.

"Noteworthy is the fact that wineskins in biblical times were made of either sheep or goat skin. Prophetically speaking, I believe the outpouring of new wine will begin to separate the sheep from the goats--the true from the false. You will know them by their fruit (see Matt. 7:15-20). New wine manifests with not just the gifts of the Spirit but the fruit of the Spirit." -- Jennifer Leclaire

When the bible is your playground and you have no fear of the Lord this is the end result. Prophecy is NOT mangling the Word of God. God clearly has stated that the separating of the goats and sheep refers to the end judgment of all. You do not get to take that and pretend you are speaking for God while contradicting Him! Oh the delicious irony that Jennifer can refer to these verses from Matthew and not see they are warning us about her!

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. -- Matthew 7: 15-20 (ESV)

These verses have nothing to do with the sheep and the goats bible verses. They have nothing to do with the gifts of the spirit. What they are about is a warning regarding false prophets such as Jennifer Leclaire. While we are on the subject, just because the Matthew verses uses the word fruit and the description of the Holy Spirit also uses the word fruit -- that does not mean they are comparable at all! What is this; a Dr. Seuss exegesis?
