The LORD says today, “My people, My people, so many have all but shriveled and dried up.
My vine sends forth the nutrients, but the fruit is all but dead, sour to the taste.
See how I have tried to make them understand my ways but they refuse to listen.
The branches must be cut off so that real fruit may come forth. Pruning is the only way to help the vine.
I AM the vinedresser and the vine needs My care. Trust Me, lean on Me for there is no other way to live in these times.
Believe Me when I say that you cannot make it without Me, you will shrivel up and die.
Only in Me can you walk through what is ahead. Hold fast to Me or the times will have a hold on you. You must see it and believe what I AM saying for the way is slippery and many will fall over themselves, falling headlong to death.
Look and see what I AM doing and stay free from the world. It’s grasp is strong, but I AM stronger.
Lift up My Name that is above every name and watch evil shrink back and go. Trusting Me is the key! I love you, DO YOU LOVE ME?”
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing,” John 15:1-5.
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?” John 6:63-67 (KJV).
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses,” 1 Timothy 6:12.
God Bless You, you are in my prayers
