“And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit. He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” John 12:23-25.
When Jesus’ hour had come to be glorified, He told His disciples unless He was sacrificed to pay sins debt, He would abide alone but if He died, He would bring forth much fruit. For those who accept the Lord’s glorious Salvation, we are His fruit. When we understand Who Jesus is and what He did for us on Calvary’s Cross, we also understand Jesus’ Resurrection was never in question. It was and is finished on Calvary’s Cross and Jesus’ Resurrection is proof.
“Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.” Luke 20:18.
The Lord will lead us out to the wilderness so we can fall on that stone and bring forth fruit unto Him. If you are in the wilderness, praise the Lord for bringing you there…He’s trying to show you the stone, the Rock of your Salvation. Look to Him for understanding. Faith in the finished work of Jesus to deliver you, to bring you through the wilderness to the promise land, IS falling on the Rock. If you are not giving it to the Lord, you are keeping it from the Lord. Too many are still working for their victory over sin instead of giving it to God and allowing Him to deliver them.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33.
Fall upon the Rock of your Salvation, Jesus Christ. Stand still and see the Salvation of the Lord. Trust Him to bring you out of the wilderness once you fall upon the Rock. Bring forth much fruit unto God by the word of your testimony.
“And they overcame him because of the Blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.” Revelations 12:11.
