AND IF IT BEARS FRUIT WELL BUT IF NOT
AFTER THAT YOU CAN CUT IT DOWN ......................................................LUKE
IF NOT...CUT IT DOWN.
This scripture is connected to the parable of the fig tree, the barren
fig tree. Brother Donald Wilson my beloved fellow servant and minister in the Christ
adopted this particular parable as a launching pad for his part in the body of Christ/The
Living Church. And might I say he has blessed many a soul over the years with the light
Father has given him to shine. My family, fellowship and I being ongoing wilful recipients
of such beautiful light. (click here).
- IF IT BEARS FRUIT (V9) tells us that we have a tree which is expected to bear fruit,
surely a loving God would not expect something from someone that they are not capable of
producing. You can breath freely, God does not expect the unsaved to bear fruit, Godly
fruit. However God does expect the unsaved to bear fruit worthy of repentance......Matthew
3:8, John 15:2.
- FOR THREE YEARS (V7) this certain man came looking for fruit for three years, this
certain man was very kind, generous and hopeful, he gave the tree/person, three years so
to speak. But he found no fruit...Divine Time is called grace..........Hebrews 2:3.
- CUT IT DOWN (V7) was the word from the owner, it's a waste of space
- LET IT ALONE THIS YEAR (V8) the keeper wanted to dig around and fertilise this tree, he
wanted to try to help this tree, save this tree/person from destruction, from being cut
down, cast out................ .............James 5:19, 20, Isaiah 5:1-7.
- IF IT BEARS FRUIT, WELL.....there must be fruit, progress, change and reason for the
tree to be granted a place in this vineyard.......Matthew 5:13.
- BUT IF NOT (V9) cut it down was the agreement. We also find this very same point placed
in the story of the.............branch in Him/Jesus, ref/John 15:2. And again we also read
in Romans 11:22 about those who do not continue in his/Jesus goodness they shall be cut
off. Now is the time of salvation and the day is also called now.
When we are planted in a yard that is expected to bear
fruit let us never (wilfully) forget the noble vine, noble meaning excellent or of high
moral qualities, the noble vine which turned into the degenerate plant. This is found
written in the book of Jeremiah. Much soap, perfume or after shave can not remove the
dirty stains of sin.......Jeremiah 2:21, 22....(click here)
We are told by the judge himself, Jesus that all unfaithful people of God shall be cut
into pieces, a fair, equitable warning for all I believe. They then are numbered with the
hypocrites......Matthew 24:51...(click here)
Woe unto all the men and women who suppress the truth. Suppress means to hold back,
restrain or withdraw from publication......Bible ref/Romans 1:18......selah!,amen.
