Before The Fruit

 

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is:

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness
  • Gentleness
  • Self-Control
Against such things there is no law.


Here we are told the result of being indwelled by the Holy Spirit as believers in Jesus, a promise Jesus made to those who follow him as disciples. We today are those disciples and there is a difference between the roles of being a disciple and being a apostle which might be a good study for another time.


I'd like to focus on the process that one goes through before the fruit shows up and as one who has been with Jesus since I was 8 years old, you can imagine the experiences I can share.


My earliest one was at a time where the bully in school was tolerated. Late 1970's early 1980's. I attracted bullies like no one else. Maybe sometimes I deserved it, many times not.


My only recommendation is that your never start a fight with a bully but if it cannot be avoided, you stand your ground and finish it.


It was during one of these times that I did stand my ground and I had this bully pinned to the ground on top of him ready to pound his face in.


I raised my left arm as high above my head as I could and I could not make a fist! I literally could not make a closed fist!


Something was holding me back and that surprise pause startled me. It scared me.


I ended up slapping him, giving him a titty twister and letting him go and it wasn't until later I had realized and just had a knowing it was The Holy Spirit who intervened.


It may not sound like much, but even to this day, I could never close my fist and hit someone which may explain why I got into YMCA Judo.


The influence of The Holy Spirit for a disciple, for a believer is a life long process. When you consider the effort needed from a farmer to go from soil to fruit, its not something that happens entirely overnight.


One also desires to produce the best and most abundant "fruit" one can create and this is not at all accidental, it involves choices that we make daily.


We lean into with our daily choices just as the farmer leans into all the choices from soil to fruit.


If the "fruit" is your priority, just like the farmer, your going to clear any and all obstacles seperating you from your goal.


In our "spiritual fruit" goals, this may involve all kinds of changes in behavior.


You may be guided to spend your time differently, your friends may change, your vibrational energy may change and you won't resonate with certain things, people or events anymore.


How you spend your money may change and even how you earn money may be different.


You may become more aware of your lifestyle and how it is a hinderence to the "fruit".


Most importantly, have the courage to change no matter where you are in life. If the "spiritual fruit" truly is your goal, trust in where The Holy Spirit is leading you. This might be the hardest aspect of before the fruit.


The Holy Spirit could be leading you into a change that will have everyone around you scrambling for an explaination.


One thing is for sure, The Holy Spirit will never lead you into confusion. After you take as much time as you need in Prayer and Mediation with God, you will know exactly what needs to be done.


Far to often, we each know and we don't have to courage to follow through and the "fruit" suffers in the end.


In The Love & Light of Jesus,


Amen

Welcome

 As I AM myself in these blog posts, there are some principles I would ask for you to keep in mind. My Prime Directive comes from the concepts, ideas and principles of Jesus Christ. As written in our miraculous Holy Bible which has survived every scrutiny and every attack possble and is still relevant today and will be with us as God has promised until the end of time. Jesus spoke of the Earth as not our true home. Jesus spoke of this home being in turmoil. Jesus spoke of the Earth being ruled by forces difficult to undestand. Jesus spoke of deception, few if any other spiritual teachers speaks of there being a global deception. Jesus spoke of the Earth being and under a curse. Jesus spoke of the Earth's demise and rebirth. Jesus spoke of not caring about this life and caring more about the next life. Jesus spoke of loving your enemies and doing good for them. It is upon these ideas and concepts that Jesus presents that I write. I write to warn, inform and awaken so you may see wha

The DC Enchantment

The enchantment magic around DC is there to make sure there is no true deviation from the agenda because when you consider the elected people who come to serve here from all over the country and they promise change because the local people who elected them desire proper change, however once they arrive, they realize it is hopeless, truly get discouraged and most of them stay a minimal amount of time being here. Trump did everything possible for real change and few agreed and even fewer things happened, he was our last hope against the agenda but the enchantment has been here for hundreds of years, marching step by step with minimal deviation and minimal distraction. The My Pillow guy knows pillow tech through and through. He does not know first hand, election tech. This was the best agency covert op if I ever saw one. They used his desire to believe against him. They put the right people in place to convince him. Then they destroyed him. Mike will be very fortunate just to continue his

Sadiant Lands - My Recent and Most Significant Beginnings

  In my most significant beginning, my great grandfather was an Army General who was in both WWI and WWII. He created the town Walden Hills, Ohio and as you can imagine a family wealth legacy that still continues to this day as every little plot of land was sub divided for new surburban homes. Fast forward to 1969, my mother gives birth to me at 16 years old after having sex with most likely a horny family relative or family friend (as far as I can tell because my father isn’t llisted on my birth certificate) and the only reason I’m alive is because they believed they would go to Hell in the afterlife if my mother had an abortion because they were Catholic. So, not born out of love. Born out of fear of a post humanous survival not in Hell because of religion. Let’s just get that straight. I’ve actually found my Mother in Independence, Ohio who works at the vet clinic. She wants nothing to do with me. Fuck you Mom and the entire family. This is very different from the story I was told a
