GOOD FRUIT, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 8/2/19 (Notes for our Friday Evening House Church, tonight)
Fruit of the Spirit,
So what is God’s design for us in the way of fruit after we are born from above ??…. When moved to Kealia, we cut down about 10 big old trees in moving here. Common mango (3 months of garbage per year.) Kakua Nut, if you like to make necklaces or need a primitive candle and African tulip trees that can easily crush a house in a high wind. Of course the neighbors got upset that we took down all of those old beautiful trees. And in there place we have now planted 16 fruit trees and more to come. You should see how happy those guys are. Seems like the LORD was also making a parallel in HIS teachings to souls and trees. And if I take what HE said as facts when I go to Costco to get groceries, 97 – 98 souls of 100 souls that I see will not make it into HIS KINGDOM due to their own choices, Romans 1, and the kind of fruit on their tree. So what kind of a fruit tree is our LORD looking to plant in HIS ETERNAL GARDEN? Peter’s first sermon on Pentecost was for the folks to “REPENT”…… (CHANGE)
Jesus taught, “
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.13 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:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Paul taught, “ But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Gal..5:22-23″
Love 1 Cor. 13
Peace 1 Cor. 14:30
Longsuffering 2 Pet. 3:15
Gentleness 2 Cor. 1):1
Goodness 2 Thess. 1:11
Faith Hebrews 11, whole chapter
Temperance 1 Pet. 1:5-7
More Character Traits of Jesus with the attachment.
Yours in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
