ARE YOU BEARING FRUIT?


Since John the baptist first preached the
kingdom of God, the world has been warned that every tree that does not bear fruit,
will get cut off and burned. We read in Matthew 3:1-12
1Now in those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying,
2“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 3For this is the one referred to by Isaiah
the prophet when he said, “THE VOICE OF ONE
CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, ‘MAKE READY THE WAY
OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT!’”
4Now John himself had a garment of camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist;
and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5Then Jerusalem was going out to him, and
all Judea and all the district around the Jordan; 6and they were being baptized by him
in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins. 7But when he saw many of the Pharisees
and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers, who warned
you to flee from the wrath to come? 8“Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance;
9and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for
I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham. 10“The axe is already laid at the root of
the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown
into the fire. 11“As for me, I baptize you with
water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not
fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12“His winnowing fork is in His hand, and
He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn,
but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” We read in John 15:1, Jesus said:“I am the
true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2“Every branch in Me that does not bear
fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear
more fruit.. 4“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself
unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5“I am the vine, you are the branches; he
who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6“If anyone does not abide in Me, he is
thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire
and they are burned. 7“If you abide in Me, and My words abide
in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8“My Father is glorified by this, that you
bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. 9“Just as the Father has loved Me, I have
also loved you; abide in My love. 10“If you keep My commandments, you will
abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.” Here is the key to bering fruit. We must obey the commandments of Jesus, His
words and teachings as they were also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Are we bearing fruit? Are we living as Jesus commanded? If we don’t we will get cut off and burned. May Jesus bless you. Jesus Christ is alive and hell is real. I am here to introduce you to Jesus Christ
