The LORD keeps reminding me of a vision that He had given to me during the week.
As I was driving home this afternoon, I saw a fruit truck and now I believe that He wants me to release this Word.
I see Jesus and He is picking fruit up off a tree. I see a Bride walking towards Him and He picks off a piece of fruit and hands it to His Bride.
I hear the Father say, “Be fruitful and multiply. I AM handing you My Fruit. They are My precious fruit entrusted to you.
Take care of them. My fruits are of The Spirit and they give life. They make you shine with MY GLORY.
Without these fruit, the people cannot see Me. Keep them clean, fresh and pure. They are a lifeline to you.”
He brings me to Galatians 5:16-26.
Our obedience is living in The Spirit and not giving into the desires of our flesh. We must walk in the fruits of the spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control and long-suffering. The opposite is not who God is.
He says we are to go from glory to glory. To go from glory to glory we must become more like Him.
His fruit is not rotten and distasteful. His fruit is pure. Rotten fruit smells and gives off an odor. We must rid ourselves of all jealousy, discord, hatred, malice, rage, envy, self-ambition and drunkenness. In this, we will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit, (Galatians 5:24-25).
Who do we want people to see? You? Me?
People need to see HIM in us. We are just HIS vessel. This brings HIM great JOY!
So…. BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY!
“16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another,” Galatians 5:16-26.
“24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit,” Galatians 5:24-25.
