HEARDOh really, the turtles abandon their shells?


VISIONI saw all these turtle shells lined up along a flowing creek bed and a pool of water.  These shells were standing up on their ends, like armored shields and were all stacked together like Pringles potato chips in a can!


I saw that the turtles had shed them because they no longer fit and they had jumped into the water with brand new and larger shells.  The water was a lovely turquoise.


[This is a Word parable, because turtles do not shed their shells in real life.]


HEARDOld wine skin. 


Mark 2:21-22  AMP

No one sews a patch of unshrunken (new) goods on an old garment; if he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and the rent (tear) becomes bigger and worse [than it was before].   And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the bottles destroyed; but new wine is to be put in new (fresh) wineskins.


IMPRESSION:  God doesnt take our old life, but we with our own choice in our thoughts and deeds walk away from what no longer fits and what we have grown out of in maturity.


HEARDWe have abandoned what no longer works because we have grown out of it. 


2 Cor 5:17-18  NKJV

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.



It is time to shed and abandon old ways and old patterns that do not promote abundant health to your soul, body and spirit.  Yes what is outside of sin is lawful, but all things are not edifying; they do not build you up.  Precious one, you have asked for My increase in your life.  If you stayed in the old skin in your thinking, perspectives, emotions, habits, the increase of My anointing would burst through cracks in your character and it would cause much damage to you and others.  Beloved if you are feeling tight and squeezed in areas, it is because I AM moving you to let go and leave the old self behind.


I have brought you through years of maturation where these old patterns no longer fit you.  Simply be willing to lay these down and walk away.  Your character in Me has grown to the place where your will is strong enough to say, “NO!” to old dysfunctions of what no longer works to appease and what no longer fits My image.  Strip off the old self, abandon it and return to it no more.  You are a new creature in Me, and old things have passed away.  As you abandon the old skin, you will have a new covered protection and home in Me.  I will increase your blessing as you swim freely in the waters of My Spirit.


Mark 2:22 NLT

And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. The wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine needs new wineskins."
