“As the new wine is found in the cluster and one said destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: “
*New Wine is Found in the Cluster* was painted July 7th 2007 on the platform during the graduation ceremony of the Bethel Supernatural School of Worship.
July 1995, Victoria Randolph had a vision while attending a Renewal Conference that was sponsored by several churches from the Greater Redding area held at the Risen King Church. The prophet team of Wes and Stacey Campbell were the guest speakers and were prophetically ministering individually to many Christian leaders & their spouses.
During this interaction Victoria saw a vision of the left hand of Jesus taking a large cluster of grapes from a vineyard and squeezing the cluster into a golden cup for the harvest of new wine. Each grape was losing its individual containing skin (that causes bitterness and restraints).
The Left hand of God represents the private hand of intimacy (the Right hand of God represents the public hand of fellowship). The new wine was gathered in a golden cup of honor by the right hand of the Lord.
As the new juice began to flow, many of the grapes were unhappy to be pressured into being ruptured and blending their essence with others without distinction. But other grapes were overjoyed to be harvested to become the new wine.
The Lord decreed a blessing in the midst of the clusters as the wine flowed out: full of glory radiating into the cup. The Lord is greatly pleased to crush the grapes to make the new wine as He delights as the Vinedresser.
The grape vines are valuable to God and precious for the Kingdom of God (Parable of the Vinedresser). The golden cup of honor is raised by the Lord as he tastes the new wine.
Unbeknownst to Victoria as she shared the vision with Wes and Stacey; the day before they had come to Redding as guest speakers, the denomination leaders of their church in Kelowna the new leadership from headquarters came for a visit. The new leadership was concerned with some of the manifestations that revival centers within their denomination were experiencing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit called the “Toronto Blessing”.
Some of these manifestations were causing controversy and the new denominational leaders wanted the pastors of these revival centers and churches to put a stop and not allow these unusual expressions. Some of these pastors decided to leave their denominations rather than restrict the free moving of these new expressions in Europe, Canada and the United States.
Twelve years later in July 2007 Victoria was asked to paint during the Bethel Supernatual School of Worship graduation celebration. She painted the vision from 1995.
A month later 8.5.2007 Victoria felt led by the Holy Spirit to bring the painting with here to the Church Service without knowing why. She carried the painting into her Sunday School class thinking she could possibly share it there but did not have an opportunity. She decided to return the painting to her car so she could go into the main Church service where she ran into Eric Johnson. When Eric saw the painting he said you must show this to my Dad because he is preaching on this. Immediately Bill Johnson looked at the painting and asked to use this for a sermon illustration for the second service. Bill Johnson had just come from a meeting with other Revival Leaders to establish an alliance for the purpose of revival. He was announcing this news in the morning service.
