Jon, (John-15-1) I am the Vine, and My Father is the Husbandman: Remember, Jesus said, no man come to Me, except My Father draw him? Jesus is the Root (Romans-15-12) There shall be a Root of Jesse, and He that shall rise and regin over the Gentles: in Him shall the Gentiles Trust! Christ was the Seed Promised to the Nation, Israel, the Seed promised to Abraham, The Lamb of God, The Sacrifice unto whom the Nations of the earth might be Blessed when they receive Him. and the Seed Promised to David, according to the flesh, However, Israel received Him not, therefore, cut them off, then He turned to the Gentile, (Romans-11-18) Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou beaest not the Root, but the Root thee. (19) Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off (Israel) that I (Gentile) might be grafted in. (20) Well: because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith, Be not highminded, but fear: (21) For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest He also spare not thee. (16) For if the Firstfruit be Holy, the lump is also holy, so are the branches. As He is Holy, be you also holy! (Romans-8-29) Christ is the Firstfruit, the Firstborn, among many brethen, that we might be conformed like unto His image, to know no sin! The Work of the Spirit of Holy God, in the heart of His children. However, God also warned of the danger of falling away from the Spirit of Holy God, Who speaks from Heaven unto His children (Hebrews-12-25) See that you refuse not Him that speaks, For if they escaped not, who refused Him that spoke on earth (Israel) much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him that speaks from Heaven! (now, to the Gentile) Satan deceived the children of Israel, in their conceit of the flesh, as the Seed of Abraham, (John-8-33-44) the warning to the Gentile, do not think too highly of the flesh, but of the Spirit of Christ Jesus, in us, and us in Him (John-15-5) for without Him, we can do nothing! Satan deceived Israel, and we are warned not to be highminded, but to fear, because satan will try and also destroy the Gentile! (Jeremiah-4-7) The Lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentile is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate: and thy cities shall be laid waste, without inhabtant. So you see, we cannot put our trust in any man, any Religion, trust no man with your SOUL, our only hope is in Him and Him only, down on our kness seeking Him, with all our heart, mind and soul, and He said, you will find Me! Trust Him and Him only, repent of your sins, for He is faithful and just, to forgive us of our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness, ask Him to come into your life that you might be strengthened with might against future sin, by His Spirit inside of your heart! (Ephesians-3-16) that the work of the devil, sin and death, against you, might be destroyed, the very reason He came! (1John-3-4-8) that everything we lost in first Adam, might be restored unto us! No reason to fear satan, Holy God is the only One we must fear, when you truly turn to Him, with all your might, heart, mind and soul! Then you will know, Greater is He that is in you, then he that is in the world! We know, satan is the god of this world, (Romans-16-19-20) But the God of Peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly, Obey Christ Jesus-- sin no more, that you might receive His Spirit, giving you the victory over both sin and death, and you shall find Peace! God Bless You!
