Witness Him Now
The LORD has been speaking to me a lot the last few months, but I have been posting it all on Facebook. I am now taking the time to post here.

The only thing that matters now is fruit. We need to all check our own tree. What kind of fruit is on it? God is looking for trees with good fruit. Those trees are the ones He has planted in His garden. The people who KNOW their God will be filled with love and joy and peace and patience and kindness and goodness and faithfulness and gentleness and self-control. Even in these changing, uncertain, hate-filled times - no matter what happens, fruit will be there. Light and truth and mercy and grace and unfailing love will make sure this happens. Kindness will keep the fruit fresh. It is God's kindness that leads us to repentance.
It does not matter what is happening in Washington. It does not matter what is happening with our jobs. It does not matter what is happening in our families. The only thing that matters is fruit.
Jesus said, "I am the true grapevine, and My Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn't bear fruit." - Are you listening to what Jesus is saying? - "And He prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in Me."
"Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce MUCH FRUIT. For apart from Me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in Me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned." - Are you listening? - "But if you remain in Me and My words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are My TRUE DISCIPLES. This brings great glory to My Father. You didn't choose Me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give your whatever you ask for, using My name. This is My command: LOVE EACH OTHER." (John 15:1-8,16-17)
It all comes down to us being able to love one another. It is not possible in these chaotic times unless fruit is on the tree - patience and kindness and goodness and gentleness and faithfulness and self-control - mercy and grace - love and joy and peace.
So if the fruit on your tree is not what you want, go to God. Face Him with your heart-wide-open. Let Him set you free and heal you. Tell Him you are guilty and sorry for what you have done. When you do this, God plants new seeds - seeds of righteousness and joy. This is VERY serious message because God says in Matthew 3:10, "Even now the ax of God's judgment is poised, ready to sever the roots of the trees. Yes, every tree that does not produce good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the fire." This is a warning. The ax of God's judgment is poised. It is about to sever the roots of the trees. God is not playing.
Blessings, my friends. May your tree have large, abundant, lasting fruit. My your leaves never wither and your fruit never fail. May your tree bring much glory and honor to our Father in the coming days. In Jesus' name.
The scripture says, "May you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
