ABIDE IN ME! Posted 080220 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: ABIDE IN ME! It is written in John 15.4: Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches; He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without Me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch and is withered; and men gather them and cast them into the fire and they are burned. If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein am I glorified, that ye bear much fruit. Delight yourself in Me; and I shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
This is My commandment: That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye shall ask, I may give it to you. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. The servant is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also.
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which I have promised to them that love Me. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but I am faithful and will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way of escape, that ye may be able to bear it. Count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. He that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved. Be strong in Me and in the power of My might. Ye have heard the patience of Job, and have seen the end, that I was very pitiful, and of tender mercy. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. For ye have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of your infirmities; but was in all points tempted like ye are, yet without sin. For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done My will, ye might receive My promise. Wherefore seeing ye also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset you, and run with patience the race that is set before you. Remember that all things work together for good to them that love Me, to them who are called according to My purpose. ABIDE IN ME! Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
