I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
As a new creation, you have access to God’s wisdom, strength, provision, protection; you have access to everything God has through what Jesus Christ has accomplished. 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” Philippians 1:6 – “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ”
It’s possible that we can learn to please God. Jesus said “My Father has not left me. He is always with me because I always do the things that please Him.” In Christ, we already please God because we believe in His Son. Here are some definite ways to please God.
Abraham was the first person who believed that God could raise someone from the dead. He believed that God would raise his son from the ashes of the offering. In doing so, he paved the way for us to believe that God could raise Jesus from the dead. Abraham came from a land of idols, where people sacrificed their children to false gods. God stopped him from harming Isaac, and told him that He Himself will provide: a prophetic statement that God would provide an offering for the reconciliation of mankind.
Apostle Nicolas Schmidt and Prophet Claire Schmidt share their experience of planting a Harvester Church in France. Evangelist Brian Adams encourages us regarding stewardship of our most holy faith.
How do people grow in the knowledge of the presence of the Lord? Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. When we focus on God and His Word and practice His presence in the menial tasks of life, we eventually become automatically aware of His ever-present reality.
Every generation demands an anointing that is relevant to its time, an anointing that’s in touch with the time. When you understand the level of hostility that the devil has released and is expressing himself in, you’ll understand that the church cannot survive with anything less than a radical, authoritative, governmental and pioneering spirit.
Jesus baptises us with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Prophet John the Baptist prepared the way for the fire of God through prophesying and speaking into being the destructive process with which Jesus was to baptise. John understood the technology of God’s fire as he had himself experienced God’s fire during his life of separation.
