MORNINGTIME 3450by Benjamin Munsell on April 14, 2020
Blessed is the man that TRUSTETH in the Lord, and whose HOPE the Lord is. For he shall be as a Tree planted by the Waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the River, and shall not see, (be affected by), when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful, (worry about), in the year of drought, NEITHER SHALL CEASE FROM YIELDING FRUIT. Jeremiah 17:7-8. So, what is the "Fruit" spoken of here? If you are a Christian, a Believer, A Follower of Christ, one Hungry to feed on the Bread of Life, (Christ), and Drink from the River of Living water, if you "daily" Repent of your sins and gladly lay down on the "operating table" asking the Holy Spirit to cut and take out of you anything and everything offensive to Him, and to Fill you with His Holy Spirit more and more everyday, if you are Desiring to Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS, NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES, then YOU are that Fruit. And if you are willing to go and do whatever it takes, to even run towards "death" itself to snatched from the Jaws of Satan himself a lost sheep he was sure he had, then you are also bringing "Fruit" Home to lay at Jesus Feet. The Bible teaches us that the Battle was fought and Won by Christ and His Shed Blood on the Cross of Calvary, that Christ is with us EVERY step of The Way, that NOTHING is impossible for the Lord, AND THAT THERE IS NOTHING FOR US TO FEAR, (so Live Fearlessly). If this is you, then you also know that Christ didn't Die to Save you so you could fight most of the Battle, AND THEN CUT AND RUN WHEN YOU FACE A LITTLE TRIBULATION COMING FROM THE HAND OF GOD AGAINST A REBELLIOUS AND HATE FILLED WORLD. His Judgment and Wrath is against those who Hate Him. His (small "t") tribulation is against any last vestiges of self, flesh and the old man nature still trying to hide out in you. Like the Good Doctor in Surgery, you'll feel much better when He's removed a secrete sin you didn't (or did?) know you had. LIVE IN CHRIST, GROW FEARLESS, and you WILL, Be Blessed!!!
