“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 it so 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, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:1-5.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I do not do things halfway. All things come into play. Romans 8:28. To walk before Me you must be enlightened by the Trinity. My LOVE (the love of the Father), the GRACE of My Son, your Lord Jesus Christ, and the partnership of the Holy Spirit. My Son explained that to you. “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.” John 15:1. You know what a vine, such as a grapevine, is, and that the vine and the branches look very similar, you can hardly tell where one stops and the other starts. Do you see? You are His Body, the Church on earth, and you are empowered to do the works He did and greater for you are on the other side of the Cross and Resurrection. You are clothed in Christ. I conform you to the image of My Son as I take you from glory to glory. But do you know what a vinedresser is? I just gave you an idea for I conform you to the image of My Son. A vinedresser is the one who prunes, trains, and cultivates vines. I am taking care of you to complete the good work I began in you when you were born again in My Son, to bring you complete, blameless and without spot before Me—spirit, soul and body. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24. I am faithful and I will do it.
And Jesus went on to say: “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” Not by human power or might, but by My Spirit comes true dominion power. You are the branches, and when you dwell, remain, and abide in My Son, that is, in My Word, and My Son (My Word) in you, (and you know how He abides in you is by the Holy Spirit living in you, He sent you another paraclete from Me to be with you and in your always) you ask what you will and it is done for you and you bear MUCH fruit. And there you have the partnership of the Holy Spirit. The fruit. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:22-23. And this is the fruit you bear on the vine of My Son as you abide in My Word. My Word is truth and it sanctifies you. My Son told you that I prune you, that is, remove all your dead works (sins and omissions, disobedience and rebellion) and useless, idle thoughts by My Word. He told you, “You are already clean (kathairó: cleansed, purified, pruned) because of the Word which I have spoken to you.” John 15:3. And blessed are the clean of heart for they see Me. Same word, Kathairo.
You are cleansed by My Word. It is time you gave your soul a good washing and removed the filth you have picked up in the world with all its lusts, obscene talk, anger, bitterness, and gossip. Make sure that kind of talk is not in your mouth for it spreads like gangrene. It does not edify those who hear it, including you. Speak My Word and give cleansing and life. My apostle Paul told you the same by inspiration (partnership with) the Holy Spirit: “Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.” Ephesians 5:25-27. And you are members of His Body the Church if you have received Him as Lord. And if you have received Him, the Holy Spirit has joined with your spirit so that you have access to Me and the Kingdom within. Partnership, fellowship, unity. And He has made you fruitful. Never underestimate the Holy Spirit in you. My apostle Paul, who was enlightened by My Son and My Spirit and, of course, Me, wrote for your edification, “Now to Him who is able to do far more exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21.
And to be fruitful was the first thing I said to mankind when I created you. Genesis 1:28. I BLESSED them saying, “Bear much fruit!” That was the first thing I said. In Hebrew it is quite clear “peru ve rebu” (from the verb “parah” to bear fruit, and “rabah” to become or be much, many and great) BEAR MUCH FRUIT. Sounds like what Jesus said at the Last Supper, “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit.” So there Jesus tells you the secret of how to bear much fruit, draw all you need to produce it out of Him just as the vine gives life to the branch that abides in it and causes the fruit to grow by the flow coming from the vine into the branch of all that the branch needs to thrive and produce fruit. Faith is a rest, abiding in the truth of My Word, and letting My Word work mightily in you so that you walk in the life of good deeds I prepared for you in advance in Christ Jesus that you might enjoy them. In Me you bear much fruit, apart from Me you can do nothing. Adam found that out. And why is that? You can only thrive by living in the medium out of which you were created. From the waters of the sea I brought forth the fish, and they cannot abide out of it. From the earth I brought forth the vegetation, and it cannot survive with being planted in the dirt and drawing its life out of the soil. In the same way, you cannot thrive outside of abiding in Me, in My Word. My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. It is not an idle word, My Word is your very life. Eternal life is in My Son, who is My Word made flesh, that is, uniting man and God as ONE forever. My life in you by My Spirit. My Words are Spirit and Life. They are Words of eternal life. You do not live on bread alone but on every Word that comes out of My mouth.
Grace is like the sap of the vine flowing into the branches to give them the life and characteristics of the vine. The fruit the branches produce is the fruit that the vine defines. A grapevine will produce grapes in its branches, not tomatoes or watermelons, although they too grow on vines. But the type of vine to which you attach determines the fruit you will bear. When you attach to My Son by receiving Him as Lord, grace, that is, My divine life, flows into you enabling you to be like Me and giving you all you need for life and godliness. And more than you need indeed. I never do things just halfway. I make all things come into play—I make all things work together to produce good for those who love Me and are called according to purpose—what purpose? Kingdom. Jesus told you from a young age, “Did you not know I have to be about My Father’s business?” And what is that? Kingdom business. Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. The spread of My domain. The Garden of Eden instead of all the waste places. A replenished earth filled with good things that come from Me as you imitate Me as My dear children, as vinedressers, as you cultivate, train, cleanse, and guard My vineyard. For I have a vision, that all may be one in Me, a family in My own image, united, triumphant, and true. And for each of you I have a vision too, a good plan for each life, for you all come forth out of Me, and My plan for you? Shalom. A life victorious and fruitful, forever abiding in Me. I want to make your life beautiful, the most beautiful life ever lived. I have crowned you with glory and honor and given you rule over the works of My hands. And you are in My hand and there is no snatching out of My Hand. And I have written your name in the palm of My hand, and on the jewels on the breastplate over the heart of your High Priest are engraved each of your names. No, I have not forgotten you. You are always before My eyes. Loving eyes are gazing on you every moment if you just look up and at Me and smile. But have you forgotten Me? Have you written My Name on the tablet of your heart?
I love you. I never do things just halfway. All things come into play. To walk before Me you must be enlightened by the Trinity—the Vinedresser, the Vine and the fruit producer—My love (the love of God your Father), the grace of your Lord Jesus Christ, and the partnership of the Holy Spirit who is in you and on you. Know and believe in the love I have for you, I so loved you I gave you My Son and My Spirit and My Kingdom. Abide in the vine of My Son and draw all you need for life and godliness out of Him as a branch abides in the vine. And let My divine life flow into you and flow out of you as rivers of living water to a thirsty world by your partnership with the Holy Spirit to bear the fruit of the Spirit, and MUCH FRUIT. And Jesus told you, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so become My disciples. Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” John 15:7-11. Do this and you shall live the life that is life indeed with joy unspeakable filled with glory. You can’t help but be filled with joy and the Holy Spirit if you abide in Me long enough.
