YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS
The unique place where faith is expressed is in its works.
Fruits mean our works in this life, what we do and how we live our lives.
How a person lives his or her life is evident of what he or she believes. Jesus said by their fruits you shall know them.
This means how people speak, act, their thoughts, attitudes and desires. It is common today for people to claim that they believe Jesus but their lives show that they are serving somebody else in the nether parts of the earth.
When faith and works do not agree with one another then there is a problem with your faith. Faith without works is dead and likewise works without faith is dead also.
You cannot claim to love Jesus and do the things which He hates, and likewise you cannot claim to hate Satan and live according to the will of Satan and his demons.
Actions speak louder than words. Even though you may believe you are a Christian, if you live your life to the will of demons you will end up in hell.
A tree is known by its fruits. You cannot expect a mangoe fruit from a maize plant and likewise you cannot expect maize grains from a mango tree.
A person who is evil cannot produce good works and likewise a good man cannot produce evil deeds.
The lord Jesus said a good man out of the good treasure of his heart produces good things and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart produces evil things.
If you produce evil fruits; it is evident that your heart is evil and you are corrupt. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
If what you profess with your lips does not work out in the way you live, then you are a hypocrite and you do not do the truth. You cannot speak good things and be evil in your heart.
Either make the fruit good and the tree good or make the fruit bad and the tree bad.
Mat 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
Mat 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
The lord Jesus Christ knows each and everyone of us. He knows our thoughts, desires, emotions, feelings and everything about us.
We cannot hide our nature before God. The true nature of a person cannot be hidden because what they do and say reveal their nature.
The way a person lives his or her life shows the kingdom that he or she is serving. Empty words mean nothing. We will not be judged by our lip service that we offer to Jesus in praises.
We will be judged by our actions, because the actions that we choose to take speak volumes of what is in our hearts.
The lord Jesus Christ was clear on this, when he said that this people draw unto me with their lips but their heart is far from me. People claim to love Jesus but they are not willing to keep his commandments.
Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
You cannot be killing, stealing, destroying, deceiving, dressing indecently, worshipping idols like the Roman Catholics, denying Jesus Christ as the son of the living God like the Muslims, masturbating, raping, molesting children, failing to reprove sin, following false doctrines like the Roman Catholics, being a glutton, being slothful, playing video games, gambling, jesting, drinking alcohol, backbiting, slandering, whispering, fornicating, committing adultery, lusting, forebearing to save the lost, being unfaithful, being a covenant breaker e.t.c and hope in salvation it is not possible.
A person's works identifies him or her as a good tree or a corrupt tree.
I have been talking to some people who claim to be Christians but when you start reproving their unfruitful works of darkness, they depart from you and produce excuses for their sinful lives.
An enemy of the truth is an enemy of God. By our fruits you shall know us.
If you are a channel of encouragement, doing good, blessing others, and always pleasing God, you are of God and the father in heaven is the source of your goodness.
If you are a channel of evil, doing mischief every day, getting deceived and deceiving others you are of the devil and the devil is the source of your mischief.
1Jn 2:29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
1Jn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
1Jn 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1Jn 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
The words that we utter mean little. Even the devil transforms himself as an angel of light and likewise do his children claim to know Jesus.
Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
By their fruits you shall surely know them. A sinner is corrupt and is of the devil and that is why they produce evil fruits and likewise a righteous person is of God and that is why he or she produces good fruits.
Every tree that produces not good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire.
This means sinners who do not know God and are constantly offending God will be thrown into a furnace of fire if they fail to repent.
The lord Jesus Christ warned us during the end of the world, He will send forth his angels and they will gather out of His kingdom anything that offends and those who work iniquity and shall cast them into a furnace of fire where there will weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Things that offends includes things like miniskirts, alcohol, pornographic materials, charms. e.t.c.
Mat 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Accept the lord Jesus Christ and have God's nature impacted into you so that you bear good fruits that portray repentance. Remember that your works are evident of what is in your heart.
Your works prove whether you are evil or good. Your works prove whether you are of God or of the devil.
Bear good fruits that show repentance, love for God and love for your brothers and sisters.
You shall know them by their fruits.
