I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 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. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. John 15:1-3 (KJV)

 

In today’s scripture, Jesus is teaching us a lesson. He tells us that he is the true vine because there are some lying, religious vines trying to get in our ears by saying, “God doesn’t want you to have all that; you are more humble when you don’t want anything.” – That’s the lying vine. God’s vine wants you productive. He wants you blessed. How can you go around representing His name thinking you can’t make it? Who told you that lie?

It’s your soul and your body that’s the problem. Your spirit is not. Your spirit is pure, holy, and sanctified just like God. Matter of fact, you are a partaker of His divine nature.  Howbeit, every time you get off key; that’s your soul or your body. At times, they can become renegades. The Christian heart is pure. It’s holy. It’s sanctified. Nevertheless, we are dealing with three parts. When you sinned, or carried out “flesh” actions, you did not perform those actions in your spirit; you committed them in your soul and your senses. It is important for you to stay properly connected to your supernatural power source so that when the world starts telling you what you can’t have, where you can’t live, and what you can’t drive; make a demand on the power of God and silence all those lies. You can live where you want to live, you can live as long as you want to live, and you can live the best life that you want to live!  All lying vines are cut off and silenced from your life now and forevermore!
