FRUITS THAT ARE NOT OF GOD BUT THAT ARE MANIFESTED IN PEOPLE

in HeartChurch5 months ago

The life of a person reflects the fruits of his language because to speak of life is to speak of God's perspective on every aspect of it and to speak of death is to refer to the opposite of life, to proclaim defeat or to constantly complain

Proverbs 18:21
In the tongue there is the power of life and death;
those who love it will eat its fruit.
(RVR1960)

This proverb describes the importance of the power of the tongue, since it refers to the way of speaking and what effect it can have according to their words since every word that comes out of our mouth will have an effect be it for better or for worse.

Isaiah 55:11
This is also the word that comes out of my mouth:
She won't come back to me empty
but it will do what I want
and it will fulfill my purposes.
(RVR1960)

Just as the words we speak have an effect and bear fruit according to what we sow, so also God's plans are fulfilled with as much security as happens with the fall of rain and snow in nature.

So, that our actions, thoughts, words or any manifestation that we sow in this life, we are going to reap some fruits and they will be positive or negative according to what we are sowing.
God has given us the word of life so that we sow good fruits but unfortunately many people do not plan to receive good fruits but daily reap bad fruits such as: anger, hypocrisy, blasphemy, injustice, resentment ... and then they pretend to collect it that they never sowed.

Natural people who do not have God in their heart unfortunately practice all kinds of fruits that do not come from God and obviously these are bad fruits that will have a negative effect on personal and social life, but the bible warns us that these are fruits of the flesh or opposite the fruits of the spirit

Galatians 5: 22-23
Instead, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. There is no law that condemns these things.
(RVR1960)

People who practice the fruit of the spirit will obviously have manifestations like those mentioned in the indicated verse which are virtues characterized as fruit, in contrast to the works of the flesh, only the holy spirit can produce them and not their own efforts. Another contrast is that, even when the works of the flesh appear in the plural, the fruit of the spirit is one and indivisible because when the spirit completely controls the life of the believer, it produces this result. The first three concern our attitude towards God, the second triad has to do with our social relationships, and the third group describes the principles that guide Christian conduct.

We must be very careful with the manifestations that we express in our lives because remember that the people who live according to the manifest flesh are the works of the flesh, which are: adultery, fornication, filth, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, lawsuits, jealousy , anger, strife, dissension, heresy, envy, murder, drunkenness, orgies ... and those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 19, 20)

Que el creador nos ayude a practicar los frutos del espíritu. Bendiciones.

There is power in the tongue and those who misuse the tongue saying negative things have regrets.

La Palabra de Dios nos señala también que el nos ha puesto para vayamos y llevemos mucho fruto y ese fruto permanezca (Juan 15:16).
Como somos nuevas criaturas, hemos nacido de nuevo, vamos a vivir conforme a esa nueva vida, una vida en el Espíritu, vestirnos cada día del nuevo hombre, no andando en las obras de la vida anterior, cuidando lo que sale de nuestra boca, es un reto que día a día nos planteamos como creyentes.
Gracias, @ricci01 por esa exposición de la Palabra, muy edificante.

Bendiciones 🤗
