The Truth

John 15:4-5: NKJV: Abide in ME, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in ME. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in ME, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without ME you can do nothing.

 

Romans 11:18-21: Do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you. You will say then: Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in. Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, HE may not spare you either.

 

The entire universe was created by God. Yet HE selected the earth as a dwelling place for sons and daughters. * John 15:1: I am the true vine, and MY Father is the vinedresser. * Symbolically, each person is a branch of the vine from the Garden of Eden. However, because of disobedience mankind was cast out as an illegitimate vine. Mankind has received a legitimate true vine (Christ) with a purpose to redeem (buy back) from death. Redemption will fully take place at resurrection as Christ set the example. In the interim, Christ has said we can do nothing without HIM who sent the Holy Spirit to mankind on the day of Pentecost in the year 31.The key to bearing much fruit is threefold.

 

1 Corinthians 13:13: And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. * Faith is belief and trust with complete loyalty to God. With faith, belief and trust we cherish the desire of expectation to become part of the eternal family of God.  However, to bear fruit we must do much more. We begin with loving every soul as you love yourself. This is initial proof for godly love to abide (remain, dwell, abode) to keep the Word of love which came down from heaven. * John 14:15: If you love ME, keep MY commandments.

 

Juan 14:16-19: And I will pray the Father and HE will give you another Helper, that He (it) may abide with you forever---the Spirit of truth (Holy Spirit), whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees HIM nor Knows HIM; but you know HIM for HE (it) dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. A little while longer and the world will see ME no more, but you will see ME. Because I live, you will live also.

 

John 14:23-24: Jesus answered and said to him: If anyone loves ME, he will keep MY word; and the word; and MY Father will love him, and WE (Elohim, Genesis 1:26) will come to him and make OUR home (abode) with him. He who does not love ME does not keep MY words; and the word which you hear is not MINE, but the Father’s (word of Father God) who sent ME.

 

Galatians 5:22-25:But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness (meekness), self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passion and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us walk in the Spirit.  * The true vine (Jesus Christ) is symbolized by the root of the vine or tree which nourishes the limbs and leaves. The vine or tree blossoms and produces seeds and fruit. In the same manner people are nourished by the Spirit of God with the gospel words of life. The entire bible has the necessary nourishment and meaning for life. The many stories of the household/family of God illustrate why you were born. * Born to inherit the earth.

 

Psalm 37:11: But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace (Matthew 5:5, also). * The entire world is deceived (Revelation 12:9).

Deceive, mislead, delude and beguile and trickery mean to impose a false idea of belief resulting in ignorance of why you were born. The popular belief of most Christians is we die and go to heaven. * John 3:13: No one has ascended to heaven but HE who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man (Christ Jesus) who is in heaven. * Ecclesiastes 9:5: For the living know that they will die; but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten. * The dead know nothing until resurrection. * Ecclesiastes 12:13-14: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep HIS commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil

 

The truth of the word of God is clear. The meek are people accepted by God who are non-violent but strongly submissive to keeping the commandments of the word of God. God gave a human spirit of life (Hebrew: nephesh) from creation (Genesis 2:7). Adam and Eve were created meek but chose to listen and obey the serpent, Satan the Devil (Genesis 3:1-24) To this day the genealogy of the whole world failed to obey the holy word of God (Revelation 12:9). On June 8, 2014, a few people in the world celebrated the anniversary of the plan of God to increase the household of God. This date is the birthday of the Church of God in Jerusalem 1, 983 years earlier with the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-47).

 

Ephesians 2:18-19: For Through HIM we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God. * God is a Father who has one Son born of woman. * Luke 2:21: And when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, HIS name was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before HE was conceived in the womb.

 

God is now producing children for the household of God. God now implants His Spirit into obedient people who will grow into the stature of the fullness of Christ. * Ephesians 4:11-13: And HE Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

 

At resurrection the bodies of the saints will be changed into spirit beings as kings and priests and shall reign on earth (Revelation 5:10). Christ and these saints will rule the world at HIS coming (Daniel 7:18, 22, 27). God is building a family, a household (1 Timothy 3:15 and Ephesians 3:15). How glorious this world of peace will be with no death, no sorrow, and no pain forevermore! * I remain you brother in Christ. Be blessed until we meet again.
