“But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep [it], and bring forth fruit with patience.”
Brothers and Sisters in Life we will always show our True Colors in one manor or another, but what is The Color that you are showing? We can show our True Colors in so many ways. It can be in Our Speech, it can be in the Clothes We Wear, it can be in How We Speak To Others, it can be in How We Inter Act With Others and the list goes on, but in these I will address.
In the verse above there are seven elements that make up a Christian, Blood Bought, Saved persons Life, and an Unsaved or Backsliding Person. If the Ground is Hard it will not be of good use, it cannot bear Good Fruit, because the Ground in itself is Hard, Unyielding.
“12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for [it is] time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. 13 Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.
The Ground must be Broken Up, Tiled, Prepared for Sowing Good Seed, The Heart Must be Ready To Receive, to get Rid Of Weeds, Iniquity, Sin before The Word can be Planted In Our Hearts. Only in doing this can a Person be Brought Into Honesty and considered a Good Heart.
It matters the Reason you have done this, is it for Fleshly Gain or Spiritual Gain. If I Truly Seek Jesus with my Whole Heart, with All Of My Soul, with All Of My Strength and All Of My Mind, then and only then, is The Ground Prepared for The Word, The Seed in which Jesus Sows. But, if I ask Jesus to Save me and do not give Him Full Control over my Heart, Soul, Strength and Mind, then a number of things that are Not Good will happen.
Now the Preparation Of The Ground can be done in many different ways, different fashions. It can be in a time of trouble, it can be in a time of hurt, it can be in a time of feeling lost without purpose and it can be in times of acceptance, of being curious . But there is always the Preparing before The Planting.
“14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
So there must be those who are Sent to Minister The Word, but, not to wipe away the Sending, we are all told to Bear Fruit Of Jesus In Us. So then, by Our Lives we become The Ministers Of Jesus to The World.
Now comes the really, really hard part, Keeping The Word. Jesus has sent us help in doing this, but even in that, it is Your Choice. Jesus sent us The Holy Spirit to Teach Us, Train Us to be Jesus Followers, to be Acceptable To The Father.
“But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
There are Blessings in Keeping The Word, Doing What The Word Says and there are Cursing’s in Not Keeping The Word, Not Obeying The Word. Understand this, that Your Love Of Jesus is Measured in this, both unto Life and Death. If we Choose to Obey The Word then are we Abiding In Jesus and With The Father.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
“For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.”
“21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Understand this my Brothers and Sisters, Jesus will not play favorites, He will not be Merciful to One who does not try and Keep The Word, but it is to us who in the Fullness Of Life Obey The Word both in Word and Deed among All People no matter what.
Understand! If The Word says to Love Thy Neighbor as Yourself and You Choose to be Arrogant, Unfriendly, Judgmental towards them, then have You Sinned in Not Keeping The Word! If The Word says to Give and You Choose to be Greedy, having No Compassion, Ignoring, then have You Sinned in Not Keeping The Word! If The Word Says that Jesus Anointed Five Office for the Ministry and You Choose to Setup Your Own Counsel, then have You Have Sinned in Not Keeping The Word! If The Word Says that Husbands are to be The Head and You Choose, both men and women, that the Woman is Head and she Usurps Authority Over Him, then have You Have Sinned in Not Keeping The Word! If The Word Says that Husband and Wife are to come together Intimately and You Choose, both men and women, Not to do so for what ever reason, then You have Sinned in Not Keeping The Word! If The Word Says that Children are to Obey Their Parents and You, the child, Choose Not To, then have You Sinned in Not Keeping The Word! If The Word Says that we are to Obey The Magistrates, the Law of the land, and You Choose to Rebel because of Fleshly Reasons, then have You Sinned in Not Keeping The Word! The List goes on and on and it comes to this point, if You Choose Not To Obey The Word then IT IS SIN, it is NOT ACCEPTABLE TO JESUS or THE FATHER!!! Jesus said, in Matthew 7:21 that we MUST DO THE FATHERS WILL in order to be SAVED, which is KEEPING THE WORD, both in Word and Deed!!!
As I have said many times before, if Salvation was so simple, if Salvation was Given Automatically to anyone who said they believed in Jesus, then the New Testament would be One Sentence, but it is not. We have a Bible filled with Books, Writings that tell us How We Must Live in order to Please The Father, to Please Jesus.
The Blessing of The True Colors You Bear. If YOU are Obedient in Keeping The Word, then it is impossible Not To Bear Fruit. There are many times many folds in The Blessings that Bear The True Colors of Jesus In You. Jesus said I give to You, My Followers a Peace that the World cannot give, nor can they receive.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
“Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things [which belong] unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.”
There also the many, many Blessings that come with Obedience to name a few… Peace with you Boss, Finding True Love of another, a Household filled with Peace when The Word is Obeyed, Peace with Your Neighbors, Peace during Calamity, Peace in Death. Besides all of the other Blessings that cannot be numbered when You Obey The Word.
Now there is one other thing that we Must Understand is that, through The Word and Holy Spirit, Patience’s Must Be In All Things. God does NOT move in Our Time Frame, He moves in His. Even though Frustration may come, even Disbelief, we must Endure With Patience Until The End. Jesus will answer us in His Time and in His Way, but we need to Understand that there are many, many Spiritual Battles that take place on Our Behalf that we know nothing of. Daniel prayed for 21 days not receiving an answer, not knowing that the Angel that was sent to deliver The Message Of God was delayed because of a Battle they were in.
“10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and [upon] the palms of my hands. 11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. 12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision [is] for [many] days.”
So then, we Must Have Faith and Waver Not, we must Believe that for our good to Glorify Jesus, our Patience and Prayers MUST not be hindered by The Flesh in order to Please Jesus.
“2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man [is] unstable in all his ways.”
“But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Let The True Colors of Jesus be In You
