Do NOT Grieve the Holy Spirit

John 15:1-19

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

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.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

These things I command you, that ye love one another.

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Sitting At the Feet of Jesus

Luke 10:38‭-‬42

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.

She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.

She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Jesus Full of Grace and Truth

YouTube Podcast

John 1:9‭-‬18

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, ‘This is the one I spoke about when I said, “He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.” ’) Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No-one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in the closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

This is the Time of your Vindication

WORD

All that is covered shall be revealed and all that has been hidden secretly shall be exposed.  I am the LORD and those who solely put their trust in the LORD with their whole heart shall fear not.

This is the time of My vindication for I am your defence, I am your strong tower and when you run into My everlasting arms I place Myself as a shield and buckler around you.

I know those who have maligned you, spoken slanderous words against you.  I know those who have condemned you without knowing all the facts of your life.  I know those who have placed stumbling blocker before you because you spoke the truth in My Name.

Fear not My children, for I am the One who shall vindicate you.  Expect My vindication to come from unexpected people and places, for even now many who profess My Name do not realise the shaky ground they stand upon with My anger towards them.

I know all hearts, I know of every careless word spoken against My anointed, against My children.  I am your Father and I love My children.  I am the Holy Spirit and shall I not defend Mine own from the mouths of those who choose to blemish, who choose to stand in contempt and scorn against those whom I love?  I am not a man who looks the other way, for those who choose to judge without knowledge, neither with all the facts shall be judged themselves by My Hand alone.

My children, this is the time of My Vindication so step aside and lean into Me as I bring this about to completely exonerate you.  All shall see that I have fought for you, all shall witness and see  how I convict those who have blamed you without reason.

Many have discredited you with no true knowledge and without love or kindness.  My church has become a house of gossip and slander and this has been to your own brothers and sisters in Christ; this should not be!

Have I not commanded thee to love one another as I have loved you?  Have I not forgiven all your sins by My precious blood?  Who are you to judge those whom I have vindicated, those whom I died for on the cross and for those whom I love as My own?  Surely, I am the LORD who shall vindicate My own children.  Yes! And more!  I shall do this openly in the hope that those who judge, those who blame and condemn without knowledge will come to Me in the fruit of deeper repentance.  For surely all shall stand before the Throne of God, some sooner than they think.

Yes, I am the One above who vindicate My sons and daughters for I, Jesus have placed all their sins in the sea of My forgetfulness, I have placed their name in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Shall your slander and gossip of lies against your brothers and sisters make Me change My love for them?  No!  But I say be careful for I shall judge every careless word, every lie at My appointed time.

Take heed for I am watching, I am threshing My floor with My winnowing fork, My refiners fire is here and behold it starts with the House of God!

If you claim to follow Me, walk as I walk, walk in My Spirit and bear the fruit of repentance; love one another as I have loved you.  Be careful that you do not do your righteous acts as though before man, remember I openly reward those who seek Me in the secret place.

Humble yourselves therefore under the Mighty Hand of God and He shall lift you up.  Serve the LORD with fear and trembling for His eyes roam to and fro over this earth; God cannot be mocked for a man reaps what he sows.

The time is short so I say get rid of your anger, jealousy, slander even unto your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus for I am the LORD who examines the heart, I am the LORD who sees all both good and evil.

I am the Good Shepherd and I lay down My Life for My Sheet.  I know My Sheep and My Sheep know Me.  Surely I say that judgment starts with the House of God.

Repent therefore.

I AM JESUS

Be Still and Know that I am God

Psalm 46

YouTube Podcast

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.

God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.

Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth.

He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
