Make The Tree Good

In Matthew 12:33-37 Jesus continues upbraiding the Pharisees. Their mouths had revealed the intent of their hearts as being venomous. This venom would be injected into unsuspecting prey through ungodly blasphemous words. Jesus says that we will be judged by our words. In verse 36 we discover that even an idle word can provoke judgment.

Idle here is Argos (G692) which means lazy or useless. The wicked and injurious accusations of the Pharisees would invoke divine judgment but Jesus takes the argument a step further. "I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."

If we call ourselves Christians, then judge by the fruit if it is true. We've learned that our words reflect the state of our heart. Do our words build up? Do they give grace to those who here them? (Eph. 4:29) Is our speech seasoned with salt so that we may know how to answer a person? (Col. 4:6) Do we guard our mouths and preserve our lives? Or do we open wide our lips and come to ruin? (Proverbs 13:3)
We have a choice. Make the tree good and it's fruit good or make the tree bad and its fruit bad. (Mat. 12:33) Making bad fruit is easy. We've all done it. Making good fruit is more difficult. For this we must surrender our heart and our will to the Lord Jesus. Without repentance, good fruit is impossible. Good fruit will reflect a repentant heart. "Bear fruits in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham." (Luke 3:8)

Pre, Mid, Post Tribulation?

Does the bible tell us when the rapture of the church will happen? Both the old and the new testament speak of this event. Rapture refers to the church being forcefully removed from the earth to be with the Lord Jesus. In 1 Thess 4:13-17 the Apostle Paul says "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Once we determine that this event is actually going to happen the next question is when will it happen? Paul had to write back to the Thessalonians because this statement stirred them up to the point that they were expecting it to happen at any moment. 2 Thess 2:1-11  " Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."  Read on...

What is Repentance?

"Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all]." Matt. 18:3 "Repent (change your mind for the better, heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. "Matt. 4:17. "Unless you repent (change your mind for the better and heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins), you will all perish and be lost eternally!" Lk. 13:3.(AMP) Read more...
