Fruits of Righteousness

   Fruits of righteousness are the working of Christ within us. They come from Christ, and not from our own selves.

Hosea 14:8, From me is thy fruit found. Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

Philippians 1:11,  Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which ARE BY Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Romans 7:18,   For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwells no good thing: Nevertheless, God has chosen to work His good works through us.

God has chosen to use his people as His vessels  for bearing his fruit. These Spirit produced fruits are works of righteousness that  are the working of His Grace and do not originate from our own ability.

Therefore, all the glory and praise and credit for those works should go to Him; the excellency of the power is of God, and not of us  2Corinthians 4:7

The power or ability to do good works come from the Holy Spirit who dwells in the vessel by his grace. There is no good thing that dwells in us as Paul says. In us dwells no good thing Romans 7:18

Each good work is actually a  gift from the LORD given  through uis to bless others.

Ecclesiastes 3:12,13  I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

God ordains us to bear the fruits of righteousness that he wants each of us to bear. True Christians are the vessels that God uses to pour forth his Spirit to  minister his mercy and grace to others.

Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone, but if it dies, it bears much fruit John 12:23, 24

You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:16

True Salvation is evident by the bearing of fruit in our lives. We are not saved by bearing fruit, but if we are truly saved then the fruits of righteousness will be evident in our life.

Hosea 14:8 Ephraim shall say, What have I to do anymore with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.

Bearing fruit is the result of first hearing God’s word and then walking in the word which has been revealed to us.

  For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth. Colossians 1:5,6

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:11

The saints are called “trees of righteousness” in Isaiah 61:3.

How does a Christian bring forth fruit?

He brings forth fruit in the vine. By nature we are barren producing no life. There is not one good thing growing in us  but when by faith in the gospel we are engrafted into Christ, then we will grow and bear fruit. John 15:4: “Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me.”

Jesus Christ is that blessed Root which shoots up that sap of grace into His branches.

Solomon 5:1: “I have gathered My myrrh with My spice.”

 Jesus does not say, “your myrrh,” but “My myrrh.”

If we bear any spiritual fruit in our lives it is Christ’s myrrh ,his sweet smelling sacrifice.

Hosea 14:8: “From Me is your fruit found.”

The Christian brings forth the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, and faith,meekness,temperance.Galatians 5:22

When we are  set free from the law of sin and death we are under a new law, the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. This law is of faith and not of self righteous deeds.

Romans 6:14, “You are not under law but under grace”.

Therefore glorify God in your vessels, as vessels of honour unto holiness,which comes by abiding continually in the vine and producing fruits of righteousness.

I am a minister (servant) of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Grace ministries • Evangelism • Teaching • Children’s ministry • Apologetics • End times I have a BA in History and Anthropology/Sociology combo Paralegal Diploma (specialty Research, Writing, Critical thinking & argument & Instruction) Paralegal Instructor-taught paralegal for 1 year Diploma in Physical Education ( Fitness, nutrition, coaching, ) Faith based Social Work (almost completed degree) Certificate in Personal Ministry (Intercession, deliverance) 1 year (independant) bible college (concentration area, intercession, deliverance,) Ministry Experience : Evangelism ministry 20 years (preaching, intercession,deliverance, apologetics ) Ministering and serving low income families,single mothers, marginalized. Child Evangelism in different communities. Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
