Can You Put New Wine Into Old Wine Skins?
Luk 5:37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
Luk 5:38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
Jesus is speaking of the "wine" as the Holy Spirit and when is that given to us? Also, old wineskin or old bottles represent the old carnal man dead in trespasses and sins!
I ask you what is Jesus atoning for the sins of the world for the old man or the new spiritual man? Is Jesus reforming the old man or putting him away? Who is Jesus calling to himself the old man or the new spiritual man?

Does the law state that the soul that sins shall die? Is Jesus atoning for the sins of the world changing the Law? Is God consistent or not? However God is saving humanity but how? God did send us a Saviour! Jesus rose out of death for our justification but who is being justified the old man or the new spiritual man?

How is God saving humanity? God is quickening humanity out of the death state thus we have a new spiritual humanity and God has put the old man away!

Co 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
2Co 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
2Co 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
You see God is putting new wine into new wine skins thus when the good news is preached it is the new spiritual man with a spiritual disposition that God calls to himself that can spiritually hear and respond to God's calling. This is through God's grace that provides us faith and we receive the indwelling Holy Spirit. It is not the old dead in trespasses and sins that can receive the good news message and God has put the old man away!
Eph 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Eph 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Eph 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Now, some teach that the old man can believe Christ when God calls him but God is not calling him because he is dead with Christ in his death.
God is putting new wine into new wineskins

God bless you. 🙂
