Do We Want to Reap the Flesh or the Fruit of the Spirit?
Think about it. Which way do we want to go? All our choices have consequences.
We will reap either Godliness with contentment, or sin with heartache!
Let’s do some comparing today of the results of our choice. The scriptures plainly tell us:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
Here is a link with a teaching video enclosed. It was strong on my heart as I awoke, to re-share this. I feel someone strongly needs to open this link today and listen and read.
” Good morning.
The main subject here today is about us getting into the Unity of the Faith together.
Also we will cover not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together.
Part of what we will talk about also, is bearing with one another, e.g. baby Christians.
(All Scriptures given at the end from Hebrews and Galatians)
Some main gists:
We will talk and read here of the ‘fruits of the flesh’ and the ‘fruit of the spirit’ operating.
As The LORD spoke to me many years ago, we don’t need to throw the baby out with the wash!
Some are not mature Christians and we are to nurture them by being patient and loving.
Some Churches have ‘Ichabod*‘ on their doors already. Still we must be faithful to assemble together wherever The LORD leads us. Some have house churches, etc.
We must be born again! When we come to The LORD Jesus Christ, He will take things away from us. We are to just catch the fish and let The LORD clean them.
When we correct others, we must first examine our own hearts then operate in a spirit of love. Still we don’t want to leave them in that shape.
There should be No gospel of gloom and doom with us!
In closing, the ‘Remnant’ in America can Arise out of the Ashes!
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25
“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 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 we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.” Galatians 5:13-26
“Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:1-2
*Ichabod : the Glory has departed
The works of the flesh take us in an entirely different direction. Still it is our choice.
Let’s choose right!
For sure know we will reap our choice! Also know that our sin will find us out! Let’s awake unto righteousness!
God bless you all.
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit The Kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:19-21
