“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. 5 I am the Vine, you are the branches: He that abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing. 6 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.” John 15:4-6.
Beware of those who profess to abid…e in the Lord Jesus Christ but do not possess the fruit thereof. Do they profess good fruit or possess good fruit? Don’t look at what they profess, discern the fruit they possess according to the Word of God. Does their fruit resemble the world or the Word? Prayerfully choose the fruit….don’t forget, satan also told Eve she would surely not die from eating the fruit.
“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 5:6.
Discern not only the fruit, discern who is tempting you to eat the fruit.
