Today, The Holy Spirit brought to mind the verse where Jesus says, “I AM The Vine, you are the branches.”
And I was taken into a vision in which a Child of God was not just on the outside looking at the Tree of Life, but he had become a part of it.
He was a Branch connected to the Tree. There were no breaks in the branch, they were perfectly joined together.
And I saw the Glory of God like Liquid Light, like Heavenly Sap running through the trunk of the Tree and into the Branch. Jesus is the Tree of Life.
When you are born again, you now abide IN Him and He in you. Isn’t this marvelous to think about? You are made ALIVE in Christ. You are the Father’s fruitful Branch of the Glorious Vine who is Jesus.
“Beloved, I AM the Tree of Life. I AM the Vine and you are the branches. You are in Me and I in you.
The Branch doesn’t have to strive to be fruitful but just be connected to The Vine. I AM He who gives you life and sustains you.
Forever, you are a part of Me. You are the Body of Christ. You are ALIVE in Christ. Nothing shall ever separate Us, My Child.
As I AM, so are you in this world. I AM the True Vine, and your Father is the Husbandman. Those without our Connection can do nothing, but with Me, ALL things are possible.
I AM a good good Father. I AM the your Heavenly Husbandman who takes care of you and watches over you. You are being changed from glory to greater Glory by the Spirit in you.
I gently prune away all that would inhibit your spiritual growth with the Light of Life. My Glory is the DNA flowing through your veins.
To abide in Christ is not a one-sided relationship, Dear One. We have a close, mutual, and ever-growing relationship. It is a continual and eternal connection.
In Me, you live and move and have your being. I came to bring you LIFE and life abundantly. As you cling to Me, the Fruit of the Spirit shall blossom forth and explode with My Glory and bring a harvest, the likes of which you have never seen!
As you abide in Me, My Spirit will guide you always. I will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. You did not choose Me, Beloved, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He may give you.
We are One, My Child. You are like a Tree planted by the Rivers of Water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever you do shall prosper.
You are like a green olive tree in the house of God, and you shall trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.
Nothing can separate us, Beloved. You sit under My Vine and under My Fig Tree, and no one shall make you afraid, for the mouth of The LORD of Hosts has spoken.
And in this day I shall sing to you,“A Vineyard of Red Wine!” I, The LORD, shall keep you, and I shall water you every moment; Lest any hurt you, I keep you night and day.
I AM The Vine, you are the branches. The one abiding in Me and I in him, you shall bear much Fruit.
I AM pouring NEW WINE into new wineskins. For apart from Me you are able to do nothing but with Me, you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you.
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is your Beloved among the sons. Sit in My Shadow My Child, with great delight, and My Fruit shall be sweet to your taste.
I will sustain you. My Glory and the Light of Life are flowing to you now. The Tree of Life and His Branches are ONE.
My Name is like Perfume poured out upon you and the Fruit you bear shall be the Sweet Fragrance of Christ among those who are saved and those who are perishing.”
VINE : Strong’s Greek 288 ámpelos – a grapevine; (figuratively) Jesus Christ, “the true vine” (Jonh 15:1). Only Christ Himself is the true Vine, in whom the people of God are formed into the mystical body of Christ. This is the fruit of His love (redemption). Compare John 15:1,4,5 with 1 Corinthians 12:13. [288 (ámpelos) is used of a literal grapevine in Matthew 26:29; Mark 14:25; James 3:12.] (Biblehub)
Confirmation in science 😃 : SAP is the LIFE’S BLOOD of a plant. Hold a leaf up to the sun and you will clearly see the VEINS used for fluid transport in the plant. Both the phloem and xylem forms of sap flow through these veins. It flows from the roots to the stems and leaves of plants. (Texas A&M)
The Greek word for ABIDE “meno” and the Hebrew word “yasab” both mean to remain, to stay. In Aramaic, the language Jesus used, the word “qewa” meant to remain until the end or conclusion. To abide in Him means to stay or remain with Him forever.
“I AM the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman.” John 15:1 emphasis added.
“Already you are clean by reason of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch is not able to bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither you, unless you abide in Me. I AM the vine; you are the branches. The one abiding in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit. For apart from Me you are able to do nothing.” John 15:3-5 emphasis added.
“As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my Beloved among the sons. I sat down under His shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.” Song of Solomon 2:3.
“The LORD will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58:11.
“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” Psalm 1:3.
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who is wise wins souls.” Proverbs 11:30.
“My sister, My Bride, you are a garden locked up, a spring enclosed, a fountain sealed. Your branches are an orchard of pomegranates with the choicest of fruits, with henna and nard, with nard and saffron, with calamus and cinnamon, with every kind of frankincense tree, with myrrh and aloes, with all the finest spices.” Song of Solomon 4:12-14.
“In that day sing to her, “A vineyard of red wine! I, The LORD, keep it, I water it every moment; Lest any hurt it, I keep it night and day.” Isaiah 27:2-3.
“Even to your old age and gray hairs I AM he, I AM he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” Isaiah 46:4.
