Therefore by their fruits you will know them. (Matthew 7:20)
When the Lord Jesus Christ appeared to me I asked him how will I know the truth with all the different doctrines and churches out there? When ever He speaks to you it is always so simple and easy to understand. He said any one who is speaking by the unction of my Spirit will always produce the fruit of my Spirit. Galatians 5:22 states, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.” If there is anything other than the fruit of the Spirit of God flowing out of their mouth it is not from the Lord Jesus Christ! The Word of God is always glorifying God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word.
Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
The number one fruit of the Spirit of God is Love. God is Love! 1 John 4:8 states, “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” Many people think that a person who is always preaching doom and gloom and judging others is a spokesperson for God. The love of God is what changes and heals peoples lives and causes them to come to the Lord Jesus Christ. In John 13:35 Jesus says, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” The Word of God always produces life and hope and it is impossible to fail or change!
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
But why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do the things which I say?
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.
