Hello World…..True Vine and chosen


   I Am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.Every branch in me that bears not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit.Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me.I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you.Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be my disciples.As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: continue you in my love.10 If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.12 This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you.

Yesterday is gone.  Today is the day that I abide in Him and He in me.  Each day is a choice for us to make the right decisions and walk in Him and His Word.   Someone told me that I had a lot of misspelled words in my blog because I capitalized Him.  I didn’t answer at that time, but today I would like to answer that.

The vine has the root planted deep in rich soil so that it can produce branches.  If a branch gets damaged or bruised, it sometimes does not recover and it dies, withers and falls off.  Many times a branch that does not produce, even though it isn’t damaged, gets pruned and thrown away by the gardener.   Yesterday I did something stupid and dumb.  I asked God to forgive me.  Was it sin?  I call it sin because I was not abiding in Him and asking Him if this was the proper thing to do.  I just did it and then realized it was not in my nature in Him to do this so I repented and asked forgiveness.  He does it quickly and being my Father, sometime He does it with laughter, because He knows my heart. If the little foxes cause you to repent, the bigger things won’t take hold of you because He knows your heart and He protects you from the enemy attacks.

I capitalize Him because He is God.  . . . . .  and whether anyone approves or not, any reference to Him is big in my sight and my heart worships Him in spirit and truth.  When I fall short, He still loves me and calls me His own.    He told me that I was not of this world and that He chose me out of the world and that the world would hate me like it hates Him and His name.  When I am tempted to conform to this old world, He reminds me that I AM His and He is mine, we are One.  He chose me to walk a different path, and if you are His, He has chosen you to walk a different path.  It is not an easy path sometimes, because the world does not agree with the narrow way. When you put your trust in the Son and read the Word and the Word becomes alive in you;  you no longer are of this world. 

You are of a realm that believes in love.  Love your neighbor, love yourself, love your enemy.   Do unto your neighbor as you would have them do unto you.  If you love yourself, you can love God and others.   If you love your enemies you are becoming like God.  While you were yet sinners, He loved you enough to send His Son to die in your place so you don’t have to pay that price and can go to that realm of eternal love.

If you love Him, you don’t let the opinions of man or the world cause you to doubt His goodness and love.  You will be different because little things of this world cause you to repent.   You will encounter attacks from the enemy of your soul because the enemy can not stand what He has to offer you in this world or the one to come.  The true Vine offers us a hope that the world does not have.  One of peace, joy, love, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,  meekness, temperance,  Against such there is no law in any country that can stand against and bring a people to heaven.   People around the world are looking for a way out of the mess this world is in.  They look to government, they look to war and   subversion, they look to a religious law, but nothing can compare to the freedom that the True Vine offers the chosen ones.

You, Beloved of God, bear His fragrance.  You are of His image and you can know that He is with you everyday and every hour  and will protect you.  Think about it, if you are in Him and He is in you, whether you live or die, you win……….for death is stepping out of this world into His eternal world where the soul never dies.

I WIN!!!!  YOU WIN!!!   WE  WIN!!!
