The Vine & the Branch

 

“I am the Vine; you are the branches.  The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing,”   John 15:5, AMP.

My child, it is time to revisit the vine and the branch.  The vine gives life to the branch.  The branch brings forth fruit.  In truth the vine and  branch in unity produce great fruit to feed and nourish the nations.  Their union is essential. There is no harvest to reap unless the vine and branches are in one accord.

I AM the Vine, My child.  You are the branch.  You were created to be “one” with Me in life and purpose.  When you were grafted into Me through acceptance of My offer of salvation through My Blood, you became vitally connected to Me: spirit, soul, and body.  You are a part of Me as I am a part of you.  As I pour My life (Resurrection Life) into you and you willingly receive it, you begin to produce the good fruit of the Spirit.  This pleases the Father as My love explodes in you and through you.

As you continue to draw life from Me, you become more like Me.  As we meld together in unity, I can release greater power and authority to you so you can produce the greater works needed in this day and hour.

Unlike the natural branch, the spiritual branch, by exercising free will, can limit the flow of Resurrection Life it is willing to accept.  This type of branch is in danger of becoming weak, unable to produce well-formed, good fruit.  These are the ones who want to limit My life force that flows into them so they can keep one foot in the world.  I AM coming to prune these branches to strengthen the weak ones and remove the ones who have withdrawn from Me.

These are the days of destiny.  My people are in the Valley of Decision and must choose who they will follow.  Abide in Me, be vitally connected to Me, identify with me, or turn away and return to Egypt (the way of the world).  I AM making the choice very plain for the darkness can no longer disguise itself as light.  I counsel all to choose light: greater intimacy with Me.

The nations are hungry for the true fruit of My Gospel to come forth in this hour.  They have waited for the good fruit of the Kingdom to ripen.  The fruit of man’s religious system did not satisfy their needs or heal their hearts (wounds).

My dear child, the harvest of My harvesters is at hand. Every branch will be full of Kingdom fruit: sweet, succulent, and full of life. This fruit will attract the lost ones who have longed to be filled. You are My table that I have set and prepared for the world to come, receive, and taste of My Kingdom.

As My life flows through you, you shall release it wherever you go.  The very atmosphere will become electric with My presence.  The glory will rest upon you and all will give Me the honor and praise for the great works that will come forth.  It is a good day to rejoice.  The Kingdom advances daily as the fruit ripens on My branches.  My joy is your strength.  Our unity brings great delight to My Father.  Receive My instructions and be glad for you are a productive branch. Shalom.

“By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples,”  John 15:8, NKJV.
