BY OUR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW US by (benaiah juma).
The unique place where faith is expressed is in its works. Fruits mean our works in this life, what we do and how we live our lives when we are alive. How a person lives his or her life is evident of what he or she believes. Jesus Christ said by their fruits you shall know them. This means how people speak, act, their thoughts, attitudes and desires. It is common today for people to claim that they believe and have accepted the lord Jesus Christ but their lives show that they are serving somebody else in the nether parts of the earth. When faith and works do not agree with one another then there is a problem with our faith. Faith without works is dead and likewise works without faith is dead also.
You cannot claim to love Jesus Christ and do the things which He calls them abominations, and likewise you cannot claim to hate Satan and live according to the will of Satan and his demons. Actions speak louder than words. Even though you may believe you are a Christian, if you live your life to the will of demons you will be comforted in the nether parts of the earth when you die. The devil is cunning and deceptive. The devil has succeeded in making people who know Jesus Christ to live like the lost and the people who are lost to think that they are saved. Example of the lost who think that they are saved include the Roman Catholics and Muslim. The Roman Catholics are into idolatry practices and up to now they still believe they are going to heaven, the Muslims deny Jesus Christ as the son of the living God and they still think up to now that they are on their way to heaven.
This kind of people are under a strong delusion and have began to portray hopelessness for their souls while still alive. A tree is known by its fruits. You cannot expect a mangoe fruit from a maize plant and likewise you cannot expect maize grains from a mango tree. A person who is evil cannot produce good works and likewise a good man cannot produce evil deeds. The lord Jesus Christ said a good man out of the good treasure in his heart produces good things and an evil man out of the evil treasure in his heart produces evil things.
If you produce evil things it is evident that your heart is evil and you are corrupt. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. If you claim to know God, praise, sing, speak in tongues but at the same time offend God, this proves hypocrisy. If what you profess with your lips does not work out in the way you live, then you are a hypocrite and you do not do the truth. You cannot speak good things and be evil in your heart. Either make the fruit good and the tree good or make the fruit bad and the tree bad.
Mat 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
Mat 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
The lord Jesus Christ knows each and everyone of us. He knows our thoughts, desires, emotions, feelings and everything about us is revealed before Him. We cannot hide our nature before the creator.The true nature of a person cannot be hidden because how they live, act and speak reveal their nature. It is impossible to accept the lord Jesus Christ and live an unrepentant sinful life. For if you truly welcome the lord Jesus Christ in your heart, your life will change. And this is what the lord Jesus Christ was saying in regards to being born again.
You are born again meaning there is something new, the old man dies and you are new creation in Christ Jesus. Even though a person may claim to love the lord Jesus Christ but if he or she lives a sinful life this proves they are corrupt and have not accepted the lord Jesus Christ. The way a person behaves shows the kingdom he or she is serving. Empty words mean nothing. We will not be judged by our empty words that we say every day. We will be judged by our actions, because the actions that we choose to take speak a lot about us, and what we believe.
The lord Jesus Christ was clear on this, when he said that this people draw unto me with their lips but their heart is far from me. People claim to love Jesus Christ but they are not willing to keep the commandments and obey His father. If you say nice and sweet things to Jesus Christ but refuse to keep and obey His word then this proves you do not love Him, you take Him for a joke, and you do not understand that He is the Almighty, all knowing and no one can deceive Him.
Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
You cannot be killing, stealing, destroying, deceiving, dressing indecently, worshipping idols like the Roman Catholics, denying Jesus Christ as the son of the living God like the Muslims, masturbating, raping, molesting children, failing to reprove sin, following false doctrines like the Roman Catholics, being a glutton, being slothful, playing video games with demons, gambling, jesting, drinking alcohol, backbiting, slandering, whispering, fornicating, committing adultery, lusting, forebearing to save the lost, being unfaithful, being a covenant breaker and performing abominable acts and hope in salvation it is not possible. A person's works identifies him or her as a good tree or corrupt tree.
If you live a godless life and offend God always you can rest assured you are not of God. If you are an unrepentant sinner and hate the truth you are of not of God whether you claim Christ or not. I have been talking to some people who claim to be Christians but when you start reproving their unfruitful works of darkness, they depart from you and produce excuses for their sinful lives. If a person is living a sinful life, even though they claim Christ and you reprove their deeds and see they are not ready to change be assured that they are not of God. An enemy of the truth and holiness is an enemy of the lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ said if you love me you will keep my commandments.
By our fruits you shall know us. If you are a channel of encouragement, doing good, blessing others, and pleasing God always you are of God and the father in heaven is the source of your goodness. If you are a channel of evil, doing mischief every day, getting deceived and deceiving others you are of the devil and the devil is the source of your mischief here on earth.
1Jn 2:29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
1Jn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
1Jn 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1Jn 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
You cannot live a righteous life if you are not of God, it is impossible, the lord Jesus Christ enables his children to live righteous lives while it is almost impossible to live unrepentant sinful life if you are not of the devil. Our works speak clearly whether we are of God or the devil. The words that we utter mean little. Even the devil transforms himself as an angel of light and likewise do his children claim to know Jesus Christ. By our fruits you shall discern children of the devil and God’s children.
Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
By their fruits you shall surely know them. A sinner is corrupt and of the devil and that is why they produce evil fruits repeatedly and likewise a righteous person is of God and that is why he or she produces good fruits repeatedly. Every tree that produces not good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. This means sinners who do not know God and are constantly serving the devil and offending God will be thrown into a furnace of fire if they do not repent.
The lord Jesus Christ warned us during the end of the world, He will send forth his angels and they will gather out of His kingdom anything that offends and those who work iniquity and shall cast them into a furnace of fire where there will weeping and gnashing of teeth. This means the angels will collect anything that causes people to sin, and children of the devil and will throw them in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone. Anything that offends includes things like miniskirts, alcohol, pornographic materials, charms. e.t.c.
Mat 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Everyone that does not do good works in this earthly life even though they claim Christ will face everlasting punishment if they stay unrepentant. Accept the lord Jesus Christ and have God's nature impacted into you so that you bear good fruits that portray goodness and repentance. Remember that your works are evident of what is in your heart.
Your works prove whether you are evil or good. Your works prove whether you are of God or of the devil and any one who is of the devil is an enemy of Christ and anyone who is an enemy of Christ the wrath of the father abides on that person. Be blessed in Jesus name and develop a healthy fear of God to overcome the wiles of the devil and his angels. You live in an insane society where there is no fear of God before their eyes. Bear good fruits that show repentance, love for God and love for your brothers and sisters.
By their fruits you shall know them.
