The BIBLE states, “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.” (John 15:16)
BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:
JESUS said, “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.” (John 15:4-5) If you are ABIDING in CHRIST JESUS then HIS WORD is ABIDING in you. If so, YOU ARE A BRANCH in CHRIST JESUS! Praise the Lord! The next point is very crucial to your existence. The BRANCH can not BEAR FRUIT of ITSELF except IT ABIDE in the VINE [CHRIST JESUS]. Thus, you’ve got to stay in HIM 24/7 to survive. When you are out of HIS Will, you are out of the arch of safety!
*NOW YOU CAN ASK THE FATHER FOR ANYTHING YOU WANT and “HE MAY GIVE IT YOU! ” Don’t ask for something stupid like for God to kill your enemies…just ask Him to save them and then let their teeth fall out their mouths or for a big ugly wart to grow on their ugly foreheads! You know sometimes your enemies can really b-u-g you and force you down on your knees before the Lord GOD. Be careful for what you ask for as you just may get it! You just may be the one to pray them out of their situations.
However, there is nothing wrong with asking the LORD GOD to do great, great, great things in your life and in the lives of others. On a more positive note, go over the Gifts and Callings because there are wonderful things you can ask the Lord to do for you! Whatever you do, DO NOT ASK FOR PATIENCE as you will receive several severe trials and tribulations. Trust me, you don’t want to go there!
Since you are in CHRIST JESUS, your fruit will remain to the end of the World. When you stand before THE ALMIGHTY GOD (i.e., in Judgment), your works will be tried and tested in the Fires of GOD. If your works withstand the “Fires,” you will receive a Crown of Glory from the Lord GOD. If your works do not withstand the “Fires,” you will still receive everlasting life and be in the presence of the TRIUNE GOD. Every day, make sure you do something for the LORD! If you testify to someone and he or she repents and comes to the Lord, all of Heaven rejoices. On the down side, if you testify to someone who refuses to believe in the Lord JESUS, don’t worry about it! You’ve done your part by sharing the Gospel which is the Good News. Frankly, it is better for that person to surrender to the Lord as Hell is everlasting!
Have a Blessed Day!
