New Fruit

I might say some difficult things but I have an urgency in my spirit. God wants our hearts open and ready so that whenever He does what He is about to do, there will be people all ready to say yes to Him. And while confused men argue among themselves in the corner the army of the living God will rise up and do the Will of God. I am not interested in the arguments of man anymore. Jesus said you will know my disciples by their fruit. Matthew says that every good tree bears good fruit, but bad trees bears bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit anymore than a bad tree can produce good fruit. In other words, Jesus is saying don’t look at what they say look at what they are producing. Anybody can sit in the seat of the scornful and criticize and rebuke and find fault. But it takes men and women of courage who will not listen to those voices but who will give themselves to the Spirit of the Lord and examine the fruit to determine the Will of God and to determine His activity.

 Anytime I pray a prayer in the Name of Jesus…is there anyone else who can answer that prayer? When you pray in the Name of Jesus, who answers the prayer? Can the devil answer the prayer? No! No! So if my brother is sick and I lay my hand upon him and I pray in the Name of Jesus and he is healed…Did the devil heal him? No, Jesus healed him. If I can not trust the Name of Jesus that He is the one who heals the person I prayed for then I cannot trust Him for anything. But we can trust Him for everything. We trust the Name of Jesus. Listen, Paul demonstrated God’s Power not words. Listen to this in First Corinthians chapter two. Paul says, “…and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom but my preaching was in the demonstration of the Spirit and of Power. So that your faith wouldn’t rest in the wisdom of man but rather in the Power of God.” He goes on to say this, “…we do speak of wisdom however, but we speak wisdom among the mature, a wisdom that doesn’t come from this world. It is not a wisdom that is passing away but we are speaking God’s Wisdom a hidden wisdom, a wisdom that none of the rulers of this age understood. For if they would have understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory. But just as it is written, things which the eye has not seen or the ear not heard, things which have not entered in to the heart of man, God has prepared for those who love Him. And God revealed these things to us by the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things even the depths of God.” Listen again to verse nine, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, things which have not entered the heart of man, God has prepared for those who love Him.” If they are things we have not seen, if they are things we have not heard, if they are things that have never entered into our heart before, then they are new things. They are things we have not experienced before. If we are going to go on in the things God wants to do we have to trust Him that there are things we have not experienced before that we will begin to experience. We do not live in the box; we do not live in the sealed room. In fact the bible says that we are looking for a city made without hands whose builder and maker is God. We are looking for a city made without hands; we are looking for a city we have not seen before. We are looking for the Love of God in ways we have never experienced.
