YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. Posted 092820 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. It is written in Matthew 7.16: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bringeth forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto Me: Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth My will. Many will say to Me in that day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them: I never knew you; depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock; and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not; for it was founded upon a rock. And everyone that heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them not shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand; and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house and it fell; and great was the fall of it. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If ye live in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit. Be not desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. Wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in Me; walk as children of light. Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. But now being made free from sin, and become My servants, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Whereby I have given unto thee exceeding great and precious promises; that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, give all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of your Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Give diligence to make your calling and election sure; for if ye do these things, ye shall never fail; so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Be confident of this very thing, that the good work I have begun in you, I will perform it unto the day of Jesus Christ. Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, tht ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, it shall be given to you. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
