Got Fruit?

Spirit & Works go together when one is in an ongoing relationship with YHVH.
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.

Christianity is more than a theology. Jas.1:22,(23) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. Heb.10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Gal.5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Matt.5:14-15 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house (Luke 11:33) Jas.2:20 (17) But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.(Titus 2:7,14 / Titus 3:8,14) Matt.5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven
____We are to be known by our fruits___
Matt.3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
Matt.7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Matt.3:10/ Luke 3:9
Matt.7:20 - Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matthew 12:33)
2 Cor. 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
Yahshua (Yeshua) speaking- John 15
___________________________John 15:1-8 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. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
(purge here is to say- to cleanse, of filth impurity, etc- to prune trees and vines from useless shoots / metaphoric for that which stunts spiritual growth)
Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
___Be of the vine___
Luke 6:44
For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. (Acts 2)
James 3:12
Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
Colossians 1:10
That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
*Reason we were created- Rev.4:11
God likes can do people who Show him love.________________
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
(Note:Entering into the LORD's day) (Matt.8:11-12/ Lk.13:28/ Matt.21:43/ Matt.13:42/ Matt.24:30,51/ Deut.30:15-18)
Look at the Rich man, he was rich physically but poor spiritually (having no fruits). When he died he recieved tourment in the spirit realm in reservation unto the Great white Throne judgement that comes at the End of The LORD's day. Lk.16:23-24.
Only thing you can take with you are your good works!
Spiritual linen: Ps. 132:9/ Rev.14:13/ Rev.19:8/ Rev.6:11 (Col.3:12/ Eph.6)
1 Pet.4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. (Members of the body are instruments of The comforting Holy Spirit/ Love and concern for others brings forth good seed planting/ from there God gives the increase!)
________________________John 15:9-23:
As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye 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. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
(Christians are concerned for others. This should show in all relations with others. For love is the greatest virtue and is to be used with all Christian tactics, Many fail to understand how love is used in rebuke, and discernment.)
Psalm 73:28
But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
Psalm 107:8
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Reason we were created- Rev.4:11
This is done by bringing forth good fruits!
____Generation of the Fig Tree/ Harvest__
Cursed fig tree-Matthew 21:18-19; 20-22 and Mark 11:12-14; 20-25
/Luke 13:6-9- unfruitful fig tree parable
Suggest the blog:"parable of the figtree"
At Harvest time will I hear:
Matt.7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Luke 13:27)
Matthew 25:23
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Jas.3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom

Rom.8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
Heb.10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Heb.5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Eph.2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God

Yeshua did his part (Provided THE Atonement that allows Grace to be open to us/ 1 Cor.5:6-8/ Jn.3:16/ Heb.2:14/ Rom.5:1-11/1 Jn.2:1..)
Acts 2:34-38 After the people believed In The sacrifice of Mashiach they asked (the Apostels) "what shall we do"
vs36-38 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

We are called to action. We areNT saved by Our works however we are required to embrace The Authority of YHVH in His blueprint for salvation as early as Genisis 3:22 immediately following the introduction of sin. This is the beginning of our part in the relationship.

Yochanan the baptist had a ministry of "Repent" Matt 3:2 /Lk.3:8
Yeshua had a ministry of Repent Matt 4:17
Its always been about a (ongoing) relationship. And i think we all know relationships take two (working together). Our work is to embrace the works of YHVH in Yeshua (Repent, Be baptised, & Endure). The strength and nature to do this again is found in YHVH.
Heb.12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (right hand -power and works Is.48:13/ Heb.1:3/...)(2 Cor.12:9-10)
For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin

Jas.1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves

Faith without works is dead Jas.2:14,17 and "perfect faith" is Faith that bares fruit Jas 2:22/ Heb.6 (also recall the parable of the soils)
Show me your faith and i will see your works and vise versa
We are justified by faith in the works of Yeshua Rom.5:1,2,9,11 (Gal.2:20-21)

Deut 6:4-5 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. Notice here might shows action. We know that faith without works is dead! (Jas.2) /
Those who are familure with the bat stone should look at the Root (#181 Heb.) of the word translated might (#3966 Heb.)! The LORD takes into account Spirit and works to determine who his people are!
ood- to rake together, poker (for turning or gathering embers) fire brand

The enemy does the works of their father John 8:41-44/ (Luke 11:48)
3 John 1:11
Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
1 John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Albert Pine - "What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal."

Num. 15:39 / Israel was called to remind themselves to bare fruit by wearing tzitzits (fringes/ blossoms) on their clothing.

1 Cor. 3:10-17 by our fruits we shall known, our fruits will be tested by fire (YHVH)
