The Branch of Christ

October 20, 2017

THE BRANCH

 

The branch looks insignificant to our eyes,

But in reality it is a reflection of our heart in disguise.

God prunes the branches so it can bear more fruit and more blessings.

This is achieved through our testings.

The testings we experience are designed to increase our faith and patience.

Knowing and embracing that God is our strength and promoter – our source for all our needs.

As we trust and obey Him through our deeds.

God prunes our branches everyday.

If by abiding in Him (the Word) we will stay.

The branch is intricately connected to the vine (Jesus Christ)

Our source of treasures divine.

Treasures of love, joy, and peace;

That will never cease.

THE BRANCH OF CHRIST

Jesus is the vine – the foundation from which branches (Christians) grow.

The branch is a byproduct of Jesus with the same infrastructure as God.  It is intimately and intricately attached to the vine, and its very life is dependent upon the vine (Jesus Christ – The Word).  The vine is the life-giver to the branch.  It contains all the necessary nutrients needed for the branch to grow.  The life of the branch is totally dependent on the vine (Jesus Christ – Word of God).

The Word is the nourishment for the branch, and Christians are the branches.  In order to grow, we must obtain the proper nourishment – we must get into the Word of God by reading, studying, and meditating on the Word of God.

We must remain constant (steadfast – unmovable – rooted and grounded) in the Word in order to continue growing (advancing).  If we stop abiding (dwelling) in the Word, we stop growing.  If we are not growing then we can’t bear fruit.

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. (John 15:4-5)

Abide – to sojourn; dwell; remain

Fruit – the offspring of living things; the results of fulfilling the goals and purposes that God has ordained for our life.

Therefore, in order for Christians to bear fruit, we must:

  •  Abide in Jesus Christ (The Word).  Develop an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ so that we develop the character of Christ in our lives, and be true Ambassadors for Christ.
  • Allow the Word to remain in us. Our hearts and minds must be filled with the Word of God; let it outpour from the very depths of our soul through our confessing the Word over our lives and circumstances, and testifying to what Jesus has and is doing in our lives.

The power of life and death is in the tongue.

We overcome the world by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of our testimony. (Revelation 12:1)

Live the Word.  Apply God’s Word in every area of our lives.  This includes:

*   Giving

*  Praying

*  Marriage

*  Relating to Others

*  Fellowshiping with others

As we live the Word, we Walk in the Spirit.

When we (branches/Christians) are constantly nurtured by the Word of God, then we are constantly developing the mind and character (thoughts an attitudes) of Jesus Christ.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)

As our thoughts and attitudes are transformed, then our actions (fruit) become Christ-like

and give glory and honor to God.

As we (Christians) take the steps necessary to bear fruit, we are walking worthy of God because [Colossians 1:9-10] says:

For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.

Benefits of Bearing Fruit are:

Joy is everlasting.  Our joy becomes everlasting as we continue to abide in the love of Jesus Christ.  Our lives must reflect the love of Jesus Christ toward our brothers, sisters and enemies.

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love. (I John 4:7-8)

You may ask, what does it mean when it says ”God is love”. It means that God’s thoughts and ways reflect (show) love.  We see God’s thoughts and ways through his son, Jesus – how Jesus acted in many different situations and responded and related to people. We know that this is how God would act because Jesus says I only do what I see my Father do.  So our example of love is Jesus Christ, who sacrificed his life, so we would be saved from eternal death in hell.  We are to follow in his footsteps in thought, word, and action.

Let brotherly love continue. (Hebrews 13:1)

It is important that we walk in love because when we walk in love, we walk in the nature and character of Jesus Christ, and produce fruit that is a byproduct of love. It is a byproduct of love because the very source of the fruit is love.  In the Word, God says that one of the fruits of the Sprit is LOVE.  (Galatians 5:22)

When we walk in love, we walk in righteousness (holiness).  God command us to love one another.

This is my commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you. (John 15:12)

 

These things I command you that ye love one another. (John 15:17)

Help others by edifying (lifting) and ministering to them.

Consequences of Not Abiding in Jesus are:

  1. You become detached from Jesus like a branch detached from a tree, which cannot bear fruit because it is no longer connected to its source of  nourishment. It’s not getting what it needs to grow and produce fruit.
  2. You wither away spiritually, physically, and mentally.
  3. Men begin to use you for their own destructive purposes.  You are no longer of use for the kingdom of God.  Don=t be a branch that is severed from the vine and cast to the ground to be gathered for burning; be a branch that dwells in Jesus and produces much fruit – results from God-given purposes and goals.

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16)

You didnt choose me, I chose you and appointed you to produce fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. (John 15:16)

What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed?  For the end of those things is death.  But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end of everlasting life. (Romans 6:21-22)

Were you bearing fruit when you were a slave to sin?  No, because those things you did caused shame and only resulted in death.  The wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23)

When you became saved through confession and believing in Jesus Christ, you became a servant to God, and only what you do becomes fruitful because your thoughts and actions are righteous (holy).

What you do for Christ will last.


You are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

October 6, 2017

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”  (Psalm 139:14)

The Hebrew word for fearfully is yare (yaw ray) which means to revere (respect).

The Hebrew word for “wonderfully” is palah (pawwah) which means to put a difference, show marvelous, set apart.

When God made you, He made you a respectable marvelous masterpiece.  He carefully formed you with unique character and personality and designed you with unique spiritual gifts to use to bless others and give Him glory.

He created you with a unique purpose. Once you discover your purpose and start fulfilling your purpose, then you will have inner fulfillment, peace, and joy.  When you walk i your purpose, you walk in fulfillment; you walk in Divine Completeness, and no man and no circumstance, or trial and tribulation can stop you.  When you walk in your purpose, you open the door of prosperity.  God has given power to get wealth; your gift will make room for itself.  When you walk in your purpose you walk in what God has set apart for you to do, and you please God.

Enter Into His Rest

September 15, 2017

Rest – to stop; forbear, hold peace, quiet self; wait; be still; comfortable ease; peaceful consolation

In order to enter into REST we must quiet ourselves and be still, trusting in God and holding on to His promises.  Knowing that He is just and faithful, and will uphold His promises.  He is not a God that lies.  God is in control.

When you rest you enter a comfortable ease where there is no worrying or fretting; no frustration; but peace that surpasses all understanding.

God desires for us to abide (dwell, remain, become rooted) in this state of rest (waiting for His direction) instead of going forward on our thoughts and emotions.  Our thoughts and emotions will lead us in one direction, but God’s guidance will lead us in the right direction – moving us ever forward.  However, we must enter into a “Rest” mode and patiently wait.  God is in control.

Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.  Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust also in Him and He will bring it to pass. (Psalm 37:3-5 (AMP)

As we continue to abide in comfortable ease, knowing that God is in control, then He will open doors of knowledge, revelation, and strength.  We expand our spiritual horizons and become greater blessings to others.

Give, and gifts will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour into [the pouch formed by] the bosom.  For with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others, it will be measured back to you.  (Luke 6:38 AMP)

As we bless others, God blesses us in ways we cannot imagine.  He is the Blesser and Controller of our lives.  If we follow Him, we will never fail.

PATIENTLY WAITING

Father with everything I’ve been through,

Considering all the enemy has sought to do,

I cast every fear, doubt, and confusion very comfortably on you.

You know who I am and who I want to be.

You know all I need, and my hope to be planted as firmly grounded as a tree in thee.

I believe every vision and every desire of my heart has been

beautifully created by the creator’s finger art in part.

Now pressing towards the mark that you’ve carved in my heart.

I’ll continue to trust and believe my steps are ordered by you on

the path you’ve set and see,

and sometimes reveal to me.

Teach me Lord as I go along with all expectancy in You, that You are the God of all creation,

and all that I desire is mine if I patiently wait to see you, see me through.

Endued With Power

September 1, 2017

God has endued us with power from on high.

And behold, I will send forth upon you what my Father has promised:  but remain in the city [Jerusalem] until you are clothed with power from on high. (Luke 24:49)

Power – “authority”.

Endue – to put on and to be clothed with; to be skilled

(Luke 10:19) “Behold, I give unto you power and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

(Hebrews 2:14) “ . . . He himself in a similar manner partook of the same [nature] of human beings], He himself partook of the same [nature], that by [going through] death He might bring to nought and make of no effect him who had the power of death – that is, the devil.”

With (God = Jesus = Word of God) on your side you cannot be defeated!!!  There is power (authority) in the Word.  Jesus used the Word to overcome satan’s temptations.

If satan is prevailing over you and defeating you, then it has to be for one of the following reasons:  (1) A lack of knowledge of your authority over him; (2) knowing your authority, but failing to act upon it; (3) knowing and using your authority, but giving up too quickly because you are deceived into thinking that you cannot win.  Jesus you are my strength in the time of trouble, disappointment, and discouragement.

Trials and adversities may come our way, but they cannot keep us from living a victorious life.  Psalm 34:19 states “Many evils confront the consistently righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” With God on your side, you cannot be defeated if you trust in , rely, and are confident in the Lord Jesus Christ.

No matter what comes against us, it will not succeed if we stand in the authority that Jesus has conferred upon us.  In Luke 10:19 we read, “Behold I give unto you power to tread upon serpents, and scorpions, and over all of the power of the enemy, and by no means shall anything hurt you.”

As a Child of God, you have the power to overcome.  According to I John 4:4, God said that,  “. . .you are of God  and have defeated and overcome them [the agents of antichrist], because he who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.”

 

Walking in Victory “That You Have Overcome”

Victory means deliverance, help, safety, and triumph.

Triumph means to overcome, conquer, joyful, and rejoice.

Victory is a sign that you have overcome conditions and circumstances through dependence on Jesus Christ, which is the only way you can experience victory.  When one has overcome a negative condition or circumstance, his natural response is to rejoice because he is no longer pinned under or bound by the condition or circumstance.  Therefore, he becomes free to experience joy which yields rejoicing = triumph = victory.

(Romans 8:37)  “ . . . in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him (Jesus Christ) that loves us.”

(I John 5:4-5) “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world:  and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God.”

(Revelation 12:11)  “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus Christ), and by the word of their testimony . . .”

Defeat is not God’s plan for your life.

The key to remaining UNDEFEATED is believing, trusting, and relying on the Word of God.  This requires using the R-Reading S-Studying;M- Meditating method.  As you engage in the R-S-M  Method, you will develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and experience true love, joy, and peace beyond measure – heavenly treasure.

When you use the power God has given you, everything you do succeeds, flourishes, and thrives because of the Word working mightily in you.  Jesus is your strength in the time of trouble, disappointment, and discouragement.  He is the peace that calms all of my storms, and removes all of my fears.  He is the rock upon which I stand, and upon which my faith is founded.  He takes you to higher spiritual heights, so you can soar on the wings of understanding and wisdom.

Wisdom is the principal thing, and requires you to lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all of your heart, mind, and soul.  It requires knowing and recognizing that God is ALL MIGHTY and POWERFUL and acknowledging Him in all things.

Draw Near to Jesus

August 18, 2017

End Time Prophecy – Follow Jesus Closely            April 18, 2010

By: Minister Burt Farias – Holy Fire Ministries

 

Follow Jesus closely, closely.

Draw near to me closely. It is a day of drawing near because of my fire.

Follow not that which is unclean, uncommon, and unworthy.

If they (so-called ministers of the Gospel) do not speak of my holiness and righteousness, do not follow them. Do not follow personalities, and those who draw attention to themselves even though they might have a large following.

Jesus will warn you of false spirits, error, and false doctrine.

It is a day when men of old will go down. It is a season of the passing of the torch to the next generation. It is a day NOW of drawing near to me, says the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

 


The Door of Blessings

August 4, 2017

God gives us doors, but they can only be opened when we meet the conditions (requirements) that God has set.

The Door of Blessings is opened when you meet the following requirements:

1.  Live a Holy Life by walking in the will and plan of God, rather than the ideals, attitudes, and customs of the world; and rather than the advice and purposes of sinners.

2. You walk in the will and plan of God by using the R-Reading, S-Studying, and M-Meditating method.  That is, Read, Study, and Meditate on the Word of God.

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”  (Psalm 1:2)

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”  (Joshua 1:8)

3.  When you tithe unto God you open the Door of blessings because God says in Malachi 3:10-11 “Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.  And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts.”

God will rebuke the devourer (things that eat up your money).  For example, your car being constantly in need of repair.  The harvest you are reaping through tithing will not be premature, but an ON-TIME HARVEST.  Whatever you need, God will provide it when you need it.  He will provide more than you need.

And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 4:19)

Trust and depend on God for ALL YOU NEEDS, rather than the world system; rather than man.

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.  In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.  Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.”  (Proverbs 3:5-7)

 “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.  Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

They also do no iniquity: they walk in his way.  Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.  O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!  Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.  I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

I will keep thy statutes . . .”  (Psalm 119:1-8)

 TRUSTING IN THE LORD

 

But trust in and lean on the Lord without wavering and you won’t slide.

Trusting in self and relying on your own physical strength is an expression of pride.

 

Acknowledge God in all your ways, and from his thoughts and ways you will never part.

But if you decide to go your own way from your God-given purposes you will never start.

 

Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

And you will experience love, joy, and peace during the day and at night.

 

Honor and respect God in thought, word, and deed through love,

And you will ascend to higher spiritual heights like a dove.

 

Remember to put God first and not last,

Then you will experience joy unspeakable joy,

And a peace that surpasses understanding,

and a love for others that cannot be outcast.
