Fruit Of Their Way



Proverbs 1:29-31 (ESV Strong's)

29 Because they hated knowledge

and did not choose the fear of the LORD,

30 would have none of my counsel

and despised all my reproof,

31 therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way,

and have their fill of their own devices.


The fruit that appears on the branches of the vine of life reflect a life fed by the life of Christ. It is a long, abundant, and satisfying life which has no end. 


There is much other fruit that may be temporarily satisfying, but in the end life will be short and subject to scarcity.

Mightier Than



Psalms 93:3-4 (ESV Strong's)

3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD,

the floods have lifted up their voice;

the floods lift up their roaring.

4 Mightier than the thunders of many waters,

mightier than the waves of the sea,

the LORD on high is mighty!


The darkness of the deep rises against the truth of the light. The waves cannot rise high enough to drown out the voice of the Lord. His word will prevail.

Be Satisfied



Isaiah 53:11 (NASB Strong’s (Lockman))

As a result of the anguish of His soul,

He will see it and be satisfied;

By His knowledge the Righteous One,

My Servant, will justify the many,

As He will bear their iniquities. 


When the anguish of our souls lead to repentance from our iniquities, our eyes will open and we shall see and be satisfied. By our knowledge of the righteousness one we will be justified before the Lord. 


He will bear us to the throne of God and lift our names as His brothers and sisters. We will partake in the life of His house as family members.

He Will Carry Them



Isaiah 40:10-11 (ESV Strong's)

10 Behold, the Lord GOD comes with might,

and his arm rules for him;

behold, his reward is with him,

and his recompense before him.

11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd;

he will gather the lambs in his arms;

he will carry them in his bosom,

and gently lead those that are with young.


Jesus is the strong arm of the Lord God and is the Good Shepherd for all who would follow. He will judge and rule the world upon His return. 


He carries us in His heart, even as He abides in the hearts of those who love and obey Him. There will be a time when He will gather up His Bride and bring us physically to where He is.

The Door At The End

Isaiah 40:29 (ESV Strong's)

He gives power to the faint,

and to him who has no might he increases strength.


It is when we come to the end of ourselves that we can enter the life and strength of the Lord.

Until



Genesis 1:1-2 (ESV Strong's)

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.


Man is empty without the life of God and formless until made in the image of Christ. This is the way of every man and woman until they receive the light of the world. 


The new creation is a one on one process between an individual and Jesus Christ. It’s personal and intimate. This is the body of Christ until we receive our own.

Your Word



Psalms 119:25 (ESV Strong's)

DALETH My soul clings to the dust;

give me life according to your word!


John 1:1 (ESV Strong's)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
