Broken Branches

file#02092017

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

— John 15:5-6 NKJV

A broken branch seeps out the life source of the whole tree.  It must be removed immediately if the tree wants to survive, especially the winter months.  Just as a dead branch to a tree us cast off and burned.  So are those who are lifeless to the Body of Christ.  Those who refuse to produce on their branch.  Thats what it is all about saints.  Production of fruit.  Increase of the population in the Kingdom of Christ.  We are instructed to have fruit on our branches. We have to get out here and work in the vineyard and retrieve the lost souls that are dying.  There are no excuses for not sharing the truth of Jesus to the world.  Even though many refuse to hear it is still our duty be a sounding trumpet.   To be a cymbol that clangs at the right moment to target the attention to the faith, not just make noise and have nothing to say once everyone is looking our way.  Your not here to be nice to the enemy.  Your here to take back what He has stolen, and unfortunately, that is not materials that you have grown attached too.  Your here to fight for your brother and sister who are under the weight of such heavy chains of bondage.  We do not have the time to drain the vine (vein) of Spiritual flow to feed our souls and not transfer the life sustaining power to the newly formed branch that comes from us to help another.  When you are not getting the flow, you block another person from receiving their needed daily dose.  After all this is a body, and all parts fit jointly together.  We have to feed each other.   If there are dead limbs, then they must be cut off from the body so that we donot waste what we have in energy on someone who doesn’t want it.  If we are connected to a true source of Spiritual power, then Christ will be with us and work through us to save the world.  If we are connected to a dead branch, then Christ cant reach us and we end up being cut off from the rest of the body of power.  Christ knows who is connected to Him and He will not cut you off, even if your branch is inactive, dont let it be that you are inactive too.  Put to good use what you do have available and stop drying out under he heat.  The excuse to fail can be directed at those who should know, but when you have the information that you need to branch off, it is now up to you to carry your load and bud something fruitful from your life that give God honor.  Dont be cut off and cast into the lake of fire, because someone else doesnt motivate you.  My mentors are gone, I literally have no one to glean from in Spirit.  So, I sip from the fountain direct that I might not over flow to gluttony and die because I dont know what to do.  A mentor is needed for all people.  We are all disciples of someone before us who no longer lives or may not function in their true potential any longer.  I am not a renegade trying to be something that I am not.  I long to be relevent until I am finished, what about you dear brother/sister.  Christ the vine, you and I are the branches.  Bare fruit today, and live in Eternity.
