true vine

  Posted by Chrysoprasus on Saturday, July 27 10:36 pm

JN 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

Jesus is claiming who He is.

JN 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

The branches not bearing fruit may be referring to people who say they are Christians but aren't, as is evidenced by their lack of action. The ones bearing fruit (truly saved), He will work with and help them become even more fruitful.

JN 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

HE has spoken His word, and we believed, which is what happens for salvation. When we truly hear the word we are made clean.

JN 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

Like a plant, you cannot take a branch away from the main vine and expect it to grow. It will wither and die on it's own, just like we will do if we do spiritually if we do not stay stay close to Jesus.

JN 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

He is telling us who the vine is that we need to stay connected to. It's Jesus. Remain in Him and you will be fruitful...nothing done without Him is considered a good work.

JN 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

A truly saved person will live for Jesus and be productive. If you aren't, you are seperated from the vine and will be cast into the fire. I believe this is a representation of the eternally lost being cast into the lake of fire and destroyed.

JN 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

but to the saved...He hears our prayers, and will answer them.

Simple Rules for this Site!

  Posted by Webmaster on Saturday, August 31 2002

Web-Ministry is intended for the Glory of God.

Please try to be respectful of God and to be reverent toward His Word, which is the Holy Bible.

Some may not be Christian nor agree with Christian theology in general,
but please be respectful of those that do and to Christendom in general.

People from all walks of life and backgrounds of faith are welcome here,
including the backslidden and nonbelievers, as well.

We may not all agree... but we can agree to disagree, at least.

However, any potential disagreements still need to remain civil in nature, and should stay as such.

Please, just debate the points of your position, if necessary, and refrain from ad hominem attacks.
Slandering and name calling serve no productive purpose.

Posting rules are based upon decent conduct and generally acceptable chat behavior and,
also, on Christian beliefs and morals found in the Holy Bible.

Please refrain from using offensive language or obscenely suggestive innuendo.

Usernames that are not becoming of basic common decency and morality are not to be used and may possibly result in membership cancellation.

Refusing to follow forum rules may result in membership cancellation and possibly some or all applicable posts being deleted and if necessary... entire threads.

If you feel these things to be unacceptable, please find another forum to post on.Thank you.
