WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING
  • JOHN 15:1-7
  • 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.
  •  THE LORD LOVED TO USE A LOT OF FARMING PARABLES.
  • HE SPOKE OF THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER IN CONNECTION WITH HOW WE SPREAD THE WORD OF GOD
  •  HE SPOKE ABOUT THE FIG THREE THAT WOULD NOT BEAR ANY FRUIT  FOR SO MANY YEARS
  • THE OBWER OF THE VINEYARD  COMMANDED THE FIG TREE TO BE CUT DOWN FOR ITS FRUITLESSNESS
  • LUKE 13:6-9 HE SPAKE ALSO THIS PARABLE; A CERTAIN MAN HAD A FIG TREE PLANTED IN HIS VINEYARD; AND HE CAME AND SOUGHT FRUIT THEREON, AND FOUND NONE.THEN SAID HE UNTO THE DRESSER OF HIS VINEYARD, BEHOLD, THESE THREE YEARS I COME SEEKING FRUIT ON THIS FIG TREE, AND FIND NONE: CUT IT DOWN; WHY CUMBERETH IT THE GROUND?AND HE ANSWERING SAID UNTO HIM, LORD, LET IT ALONE THIS YEAR ALSO, TILL I SHALL DIG ABOUT IT, AND DUNG IT:AND IF IT BEAR FRUIT, WELL: AND IF NOT, THEN AFTER THAT THOU SHALT CUT IT DOWN.
  • IN THESE TWO PARABLES  GOD THE FATHER IS THE OWNER OF THE VINEYARD AND CHRIST IS OBVIOUSLY THE KEEPER OF THE VINEYARD
  • JESUS CLEARLY TELLS US THAT GOD THE FATHER ,THE OWNER OF THE VINE YARD IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR FRUITS IN THE TREES
  •   ACTUALLY ALL THE BRANCHES HAVE TO DO IS TO DEPEND ON THE VINE.
  • WE ARE THE BRANCHES AND HE IS THE VINE.THE VINE DOES ALL THE WORK
  •  JESUS IS THE VINE .WE MUST JUST CLING TO HIM AND THE FRUIT WILL COME OUT BIG AND HEALTHY TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER
  • THOSE WHO ARE BRINGING OUT FRUIT WILL BE PURGED FOR MORE  ANF FOR MUSH FRUIT AMEN
  •  THOSE WHO ARE NOT PRODUCTIVE AT ALL INSPITE OF ALL THE CARE THEY GET WILL BE CUT DOWN
  • COMPARE JOHN 15:2 AND 8 TO LUKE 13:6-7
  • 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
  • HEREIN IS MY FATHER GLORIFIED, THAT YE BEAR MUCH FRUIT; SO SHALL YE BE MY DISCIPLES.
  • LUKE 13:6-7
  •  HE SPAKE ALSO THIS PARABLE; A CERTAIN MAN HAD A FIG TREE PLANTED IN HIS VINEYARD; AND HE CAME AND SOUGHT FRUIT THEREON, AND FOUND NONE.THEN SAID HE UNTO THE DRESSER OF HIS VINEYARD, BEHOLD, THESE THREE YEARS I COME SEEKING FRUIT ON THIS FIG TREE, AND FIND NONE: CUT IT DOWN; WHY CUMBERETH IT THE GROUND?
  • GOD THE FATHER WANTS TO SEE THE  FRUITS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS ,FAITH LOVE AND JOY IN US,
  •  GALTIANS 5:22-23
  •   BUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH,23 MEEKNESS, TEMPERANCE: AGAINST SUCH THERE IS NO LAW
  •   IT IS CLEAR WHAT THE WILL OF THE FATHER IS FOR US HIS CHILDREN IN BOTH PARABLES
  • LACK OF THESE FRUITS WILL HAVE THE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCE OF DEATH
  • JESUS EVEN SAYS IN JOHN 15:6 THAT IF WE DON’T ABIDE IN HIM MEN WILL DESTROY US
  • 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.
  •  OH YES ,FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS CAN JUST OVERPOWER US AND DESTROY US IF WE REFUSE TO ABIDE IN CHRSIT
  • THIS LEADS US TO HOW TO BEAR  FRUIT FOR GOD THE FATHER
  • JESUS CHRIST WHO GIVES US THE HOLY SPIRIT ,WHOSE FRUIT WE  BEAR IS THE ONLY ANSWER,
  • HE IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE  NO ONE CAN GO TO THE FATHER EXCEPT  THROUGH HIM
  • WITHOUT HIM WE CAN DO NOTHING.WE MUST TRULY GIVE OUR HEARTS TO HIM AND BE BORN AGAIN
  •  IT IS TIME TO REALISE THAT ON THIS PLANET EARTH ,WE MUST ALL TURN TO CHRIST
  •  BELIEVERS AND UNBELIEVERS ALIKE NEED TO GIVE UP THEIR PASSION AND THEIR PRIDE AND RETURN TO JESUS CHRIST
  •  IT IS AMAZING HOW SLOW AND INSESNSITIVE TO THIS TRUTH WE ALL ARE IF AS  BORN AGAIN  
  • CHRISTIANS WE STILL FIND OURSELVES DOING  AND SPEAKING IN CERTAIN MANNERS THAT DON’T GLORIFY GOD ,WE NEED TO TURN AROUND AND TRULY GIVE OUR HEARTS TO CHRIST
  • ONE GREAT REASON THAT MAKE CHRISTIANS REACT IN UNGODLY MANNER IS PERSECUTION
  • WHAT DOES JESUS SAY ABOUT PERSCUTION? WHAT DOES PERSECUTION EVEN MEAN?
  •  IT MEANS UNJUSTIFIED HOSTILITY AND ILL TREATMENT FROM OTHERS ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF RACE OR RELIGION
  •  JESUS SAYS IF WE DON’T ABIDE IN HIM,MEN NOT EVEN SATAN ,BUT MEN AND WOMEN LIKE US WILL DESTROY US
  • SO WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT PERSECUTION AND PRAY IT INTO OUR LIVES
  •  YES THE REMEDY  MUST BE PRAYED INTO OUR LIVES .IT WILL NOT JUST JUMP INTO US JUST BECAUSE WE ARE BORN AGAIN
  • MATT 5:10-12;38-43
  •   BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS’ SAKE: FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.11 BLESSED ARE YE, WHEN MEN SHALL REVILE YOU, AND PERSECUTE YOU, AND SHALL SAY ALL MANNER OF EVIL AGAINST YOU FALSELY, FOR MY SAKE.12 REJOICE, AND BE EXCEEDING GLAD: FOR GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN: FOR SO PERSECUTED THEY THE PROPHETS WHICH WERE BEFORE YOU…………YE HAVE HEARD THAT IT HATH BEEN SAID, AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH:
  •   39 BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT YE RESIST NOT EVIL: BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL SMITE THEE ON THY RIGHT CHEEK, TURN TO HIM THE OTHER ALSO.
  • 40 AND IF ANY MAN WILL SUE THEE AT THE LAW, AND TAKE AWAY THY COAT, LET HIM HAVE THY CLOAK ALSO.
  • 41 AND WHOSOEVER SHALL COMPEL THEE TO GO A MILE, GO WITH HIM TWAIN.
  •  42 GIVE TO HIM THAT ASKETH THEE, AND FROM HIM THAT WOULD BORROW OF THEE TURN NOT THOU AWAY.
  • 43 YE HAVE HEARD THAT IT HATH BEEN SAID, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR, AND HATE THINE ENEMY
  •  JESUS IS SIMPLY SAYING THAT WE SHOULD STOP DEFENDING OURSELVES, OTHERWISE WE WOULD BE DESTROYED BY WHAT MEN DO TO US
  • BESIDES WE SHALL NOT EVEN BE ABLE TO PREACH THE GOSPEL EFFECTIVELY IF ALL WE DO IS DEFEND OURSELVES WHEN MEN HURT US
  •  WE SHALL NOT PRODUCE THE FRUIT OF GETTING MEN SAVED INTO GOD’S KINGDOM
  •  JOHN 15:16-17
  •  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.
  • 17 THESE THINGS I COMMAND YOU, THAT YE LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
  •  MEN WILL SURELY PROVOKE US AND THEN TURN AROUND AND ACCUSE US OF NOT BEING CHRISTLIKE
  • THEN THEY WILL GLADLY REJECT THE GOSPEL WE PREACH
  • THAT IS HOW TO BE WOUNDED AND DESTROYED FROM MANY ANGLES
  •  SO WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? WHAT HAS HE SAID ABOUT THESE THINGS?
  •  DO YOU KNOW HIS COMMANDMENTS ABOUT HOW TO FIND PEACE FOR OURSELVES AND LIVE IN PEACE WITH ALL MEN,EVEN WITH THOSE WHO HATE AND PERSECUTE US?
  • JOHN 15”18-27
  •  IF THE WORLD HATE YOU, YE KNOW THAT IT HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU. 19 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.20 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 ALSO21 BUT ALL THESE THINGS WILL THEY DO UNTO YOU FOR MY NAME’S SAKE, BECAUSE THEY KNOW NOT HIM THAT SENT ME.22 IF I HAD NOT COME AND SPOKEN UNTO THEM, THEY HAD NOT HAD SIN: BUT NOW THEY HAVE NO CLOAK FOR THEIR SIN23 HE THAT HATETH ME HATETH MY FATHER ALSO.24 IF I HAD NOT DONE AMONG THEM THE WORKS WHICH NONE OTHER MAN DID, THEY HAD NOT HAD SIN: BUT NOW HAVE THEY BOTH SEEN AND HATED BOTH ME AND MY FATHER.25 BUT THIS COMETH TO PASS, THAT THE WORD MIGHT BE FULFILLED THAT IS WRITTEN IN THEIR LAW, THEY HATED ME WITHOUT A CAUSEBUT WHEN THE COMFORTER IS COME, WHOM I WILL SEND UNTO YOU FROM THE FATHER, EVEN THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, WHICH PROCEEDETH FROM THE FATHER, HE SHALL TESTIFY OF ME:27 AND YE ALSO SHALL BEAR WITNESS, BECAUSE YE HAVE BEEN WITH ME FROM THE BEGINNING
  • NOW THE LORD JESUS HAS SAID ALL THESE TO US NOT TO GIVE US THE LICENSE FOR SELF DEFENCE
  • NO BUT TO LET US KNOW THAT PERSECUTION IS REAL .IT IS PART OF THE PACKAGE OF REWARD THAT THOSE WHO TRULY  FOLLOW CHRIST MUST GET
  • MARK 10;28-31
  • 28 THEN PETER BEGAN TO SAY UNTO HIM, LO, WE HAVE LEFT ALL, AND HAVE FOLLOWED THEE.
  • 29 AND JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS NO MAN THAT HATH LEFT HOUSE, OR BRETHREN, OR SISTERS, OR FATHER, OR MOTHER, OR WIFE, OR CHILDREN, OR LANDS, FOR MY SAKE, AND THE GOSPEL’S,
  •  30 BUT HE SHALL RECEIVE AN HUNDREDFOLD NOW IN THIS TIME, HOUSES, AND BRETHREN, AND SISTERS, AND MOTHERS, AND CHILDREN, AND LANDS, WITH PERSECUTIONS; AND IN THE WORLD TO COME ETERNAL LIFE.
  •  31 BUT MANY THAT ARE FIRST SHALL BE LAST; AND THE LAST FIRST.
  • WE ARE ALWAYS CONCERNED  AND SURPRISED WHEN PERSECUTION HITS US HARD
  •  WE NEVER REMEMBER WHAT THE LORD HAS SAID AT ALL WE JUST WANT TO REJECT IT AND REACT IN THE FLESH.
  • THIS HAPPENS TO US ALL AND WE NEED TO KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT GOD’S WILL AT ALL FOR OUR LIVES
  • IF WE REACT LIKE OUR PERSECUTORS WE SHALL NOT DEVELOP THE GODLY  CHARACTER OF OUR FATHER AND WE SHALL NOT WIN SOULS FOR CHRIST AT ALL
  • WE SHALL NOT BE ABLE  TO BEAR FRUIT TO HIS GLORY,IF WE DO THE FRUIT MAY NOT REMAIN
  •  JESUS SAYS THE FATHER IS GLORIFIED WHEN WE BEAR MUCH FRUIT
  •  SO WHAT MUST WE DO?
  • 1 PETER 2;18-25
  • FOR THIS IS THANKWORTHY, IF A MAN FOR CONSCIENCE TOWARD GOD ENDURE GRIEF, SUFFERING WRONGFULLY.20 FOR WHAT GLORY IS IT, IF, WHEN YE BE BUFFETED FOR YOUR FAULTS, YE SHALL TAKE IT PATIENTLY? BUT IF, WHEN YE DO WELL, AND SUFFER FOR IT, YE TAKE IT PATIENTLY, THIS IS ACCEPTABLE WITH GOD.21 FOR EVEN HEREUNTO WERE YE CALLED: BECAUSE CHRIST ALSO SUFFERED FOR US, LEAVING US AN EXAMPLE, THAT YE SHOULD FOLLOW HIS STEPS:22 WHO DID NO SIN, NEITHER WAS GUILE FOUND IN HIS MOUTH:23 WHO, WHEN HE WAS REVILED, REVILED NOT AGAIN; WHEN HE SUFFERED, HE THREATENED NOT; BUT COMMITTED HIMSELF TO HIM THAT JUDGETH RIGHTEOUSLY: 24 WHO HIS OWN SELF BARE OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BODY ON THE TREE, THAT WE, BEING DEAD TO SINS, SHOULD LIVE UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS: BY WHOSE STRIPES YE WERE HEALED.25 FOR YE WERE AS SHEEP GOING ASTRAY; BUT ARE NOW RETURNED UNTO THE SHEPHERD AND BISHOP OF YOUR SOULS.
  • THE LORD OUR SHEPERD ,THE BISHOP OF OUR SOULS  HAS SHOWN US HOW TO HANDLE THESE THINGS
  • WHO DID NO SIN, NEITHER WAS GUILE FOUND IN HIS MOUTH:
  • 23 WHO, WHEN HE WAS REVILED, REVILED NOT AGAIN; WHEN HE SUFFERED, HE THREATENED NOT; BUT COMMITTED HIMSELF TO HIM THAT JUDGETH RIGHTEOUSLY:
  • 24 WHO HIS OWN SELF BARE OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BODY ON THE TREE THAT WE, BEING DEAD TO SINS, SHOULD LIVE UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS: BY WHOSE STRIPES YE WERE HEALED.
  • THIS IS HOW TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT WE ARE SAVED,THIS IS HOW TO KEEP AWAY FROM BITTERNESS
  •  THIS IS HOW TO BE BLESSED AND HEALED AND BE PRODUCTIVE IN THE VINEYARD
  • YES A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN NEITHER BE HEALED OR BLESSED BECAUSE THEY HOLD  ON TO HURTS AND BITTERNES
  •  JESUS SAYS THEY HAVE CLOSED THEIR EARS ,AND EYES AND HEARTS AND HE CANNOT CONVERT AND HEAL THEM
  •  MATT 13; 15  FOR THIS PEOPLE’S HEART IS WAXED GROSS, AND THEIR EARS ARE DULL OF HEARING, AND THEIR EYES THEY HAVE CLOSED; LEST AT ANY TIME THEY SHOULD SEE WITH THEIR EYES AND HEAR WITH THEIR EARS, AND SHOULD UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART, AND SHOULD BE CONVERTED, AND I SHOULD HEAL THEM.
  • OH YES WITHOUT LISTENING TO HIM WE CAN DO NOTHING.WE CANT EVEN BE CONVERTED NOR HEALED
