Fruit Bearing? (A Response To R. Omokri's "Winners Chapel Is In Order" Thread

22

The Christian Life is A Spiritual Life! It means that the Christian Lives His Life in Christ! That is by the Rules/Law of Christ! He (The Christian) is not lawless but Under The Law of Christ! Christ has His Law- The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ! The sphere of the Christian's life is in God (Christ), it is a heavenly life. Therefore everything must have living/heavenly/spiritual meanings for such a life! For instance: "...that ye may bear fruits..." Must have a heavenly meaning! What fruit is Christ speaking of? What Nature of fruit is heavenly in its meaning and scope? Material fruits: money? more members in church? More church branches? Better job? Increased business deals? New children? And the likes...? If these were the fruits, Christ meant, then, NO ONE NEEDS TO ABIDE IN HIM to BEAR THOSE KINDS OF FRUITS! NO ONE AT ALL!!! Furthermore! Those fall very short of heavenly Life fruits! Why? The heavenly/spiritual life is eternal, not transient, not fading, not passing, not temporal AND MAY NOT BE LIVED BY NATURAL MEANS/ENERGIES! So, what kind of fruit is Christ speaking of? Scripture they say and rightly so, MUST INTERPRET SCRIPTURE! So, what do other scriptures say concerning fruit bearing? Galatians 5:22-25 (KJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Now those fruits NO ONE SOEVER CAN BEAR WITHOUT CHRIST! If one does not Abide in Christ they CANNOT bear those fruits! More so, those fruits are heavenly of the heavenly life! They are Spiritual, thus called the fruits of the Spirit! They are eternal! Not transient, not fading, not passing and cannot be lived out by any Natural means or energies! It has to be STRICTLY THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST bringing forth in Increasing and abounding measures (folds) such FRUITS even in the most demon-fested places, time, times and age(s).
