15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorns? Or figs from thistles?
17 So every good tree brings forth good fruit, and a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that does not brings forth good fruit, is cut down, and cast into the fire.
20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
How’s your fruit?
Some days i hank mine stinks, and at my best it seems to struggle to get past the bud stage. The thing is don’t give up you have a rotten fruit day ask to be forgiven, get in the word of God, get up and go at it aging, always do your best to do better than the day before. Ask Father God for forgiveness, and Jesus for help He gave us His Holy Spirit to be our helper to lead, guide and teach us Gods ways, if we will allow Him to He will do this.
When someone comes around using all the right churchy words (Christiane’s as i call it) impressing everyone with their words, take the time to really check out their words are they the word of the Father.
If they call themselves a profit have they ever been wrong when prophesying?
If they call them self a teacher are the truly teaching the word of God or is there a site twist on what they teach?
If they claim to be a healer are people truly being healed?
What fruit are they producing?
It is our responsibility to know the word of God, and to listen to the Holy Spirit so that when someone speaks Gods word we know if they are misleading or speaking the truth. And so that when we are sharing the word we are speaking the truth also.
It takes time and dedication, but what less do we owe the Lord then our time and to be dedicated to Him. Check the fruit of the people you listen to along with your own.
Tomorrow; What’s your foundation
