CHAPTER 7 – BEARING “FRUIT” for JESUS CHRIST and DISCIPLING THEM into the KINGDOM of GOD.

In PART I – CHAPTER 1, I shared about our work in the world – that we Christians are to have an occupation, get married, raise and educate a family not only to the things and ways of the perishing world but also to the eternal things and ways of God and His Kingdom according to the leading of His Holy Spirit and His Word – the Bible. Remember the age old adage, “While we live in the world, we are NOT to be of the world?”

© In the Kingdom of God, our spiritual work is to bear eternal fruit winning lost souls…

We all pretty much know how to live and work in the world, but what we do not understand and apply in our spiritual walk with God is how to live and work in God’s Kingdom that is in us and among us here on earth. In the “Kingdom of God,” our spiritual walk and work is to bear eternal fruit winning lost souls – sinners to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior thus becoming spiritual children of God {brothers and sisters in Christ} and then to disciple/nurture them to live their physical and spiritual lives according to God’s Word and His Kingdom while living in the “kingdom(s) of the world.” I have been sharing this message throughout PARTS I and II of these books. Jesus could NOT have made His message any clearer when He said:
John 15:4-5 Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you {a true believer}. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. AMP
John 15:16 You did not choose Me {Jesus Christ}, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain {Meaning that YOU have eternal life with God and the spirit of the sinner that you witnessed to who accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior now also has eternal life with God.}, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you {WHAT A PROMISE!!!}. NKJV
Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life {WHAT A PROMISE!!!}, And he who wins souls is wise. NKJV
Daniel 12:3 And the teachers {of sanctification to those who are saved} and those who are wise {wins souls through the justification process} shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) {through the sanctification process of discipleship teaching and training} [shall give forth light] like the stars forever and ever. [Matt 13:43.] AMP

How do I know that each truly “Born Again” Saint has work that God predestined before time began – the work of winning lost sinners to Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and then discipling them so He becomes their personal Lord God and Master in their lives?
Ephesians 2:10 For we {those saved by grace} are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. AMP
John 17:20 “I am not praying for these alone {My disciples} but also for the future believers who will come to me because of the testimony of these {My followers}. TLB

About 40% of Jesus’ teachings are found in some 60 parables. Many of them start out by saying, “The Kingdom of God” or the “Kingdom of Heaven.” Which means they MUST be interpolated NOT interpreted for their true teachings about the spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God/heaven! To “interpolate” a parable, one MUST take its physical – “kingdom(s) of the world” language – and lay alongside the spiritual supernatural interpolation of the language of the “Kingdom of God.” All of His parables contain all or parts of the spiritual supernatural processes of a lost sinner being “Born Again” through justification – “the sinner becoming a new creation;” sanctification – “God the Holy Spirit setting the Saint apart for ministry;” glorification – “The Saint partaking of God’s Glory in heaven for all eternity;” or condemnation – “God’s judgment of separating unrepentant lost sinners from Him in Hell for all eternity.”

The parables have NOTHING to do with people working in the physical fields in the “kingdom(s) of the world” planting crops to produce physical food/sustenance for human consumption, or the different kinds of grain and weeds growing in the same physical field, or lending money to people to produce interest from your money, or finding material riches, or having great grain harvests, or catching huge quantities of fish, etc.! Jesus taught the people “Kingdom of God” teachings using the vocabulary of the “kingdom(s) of the world” because that is ONLY what they understood! The same still holds true for the people of the world “TODAY” including way too many Christians in the Christian Church! Most Christians do NOT understand that we MUST spiritually interpolate His parables about His spiritual supernatural “Kingdom of God!” This MUST change!!!

But to those who are His true Saints using the spiritually “sound mind of Christ,” the proper interpolation of the spiritual supernatural mysteries of the spiritual supernatural truths of the parables WILL be revealed so we can understand and apply their spiritual supernatural principles to our daily lives.
Matthew 13:10-13 Then the disciples came to Him {Jesus} and said, Why do You speak to them {unsaved peoples} in parables? 11And He replied to them, To you it has been given to know the secrets and mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12 For whoever has [spiritual knowledge], to him will more be given and he will be furnished richly so that he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 13 This is the reason that I speak to them in parables: because having the power of seeing, they do not see; and having the power of hearing, they do not hear, nor do they grasp and understand {My teachings about the spiritual supernatural “Kingdom of God.”}. AMP
Matthew 13:34-35 These things {Jesus’ teachings through parables} all taken together Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, without a parable He said nothing to them. 35This was in fulfillment of what was spoken by the prophet: I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things {reveal spiritual supernatural mysteries and truths} that have been hidden since the foundation of the world. [Ps 78:2.] AMP
Matthew 13:52 He {Jesus} said to them {His Disciples}, Therefore every teacher and interpreter of the Sacred Writings who has been instructed about and trained for the {spiritual supernatural} kingdom of heaven and has become a disciple is like a householder who brings forth out of his storehouse treasure that is new and [treasure that is] old [the fresh {new spiritual supernatural teachings/truths/revelations} as well as the familiar {accepted orthodox teachings}]. AMP

We MUST not forget what Jesus instructed us about seeking His Kingdom, and His and Its {now ours also} relationship to the “kingdom(s) of the world.”
Matthew 6:33 {Jesus said} But {you} seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. AMP
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom (kingship, royal power) belongs not to this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My followers would have been fighting to keep Me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, My kingdom is not from here (this world); [it has no such origin or source]. AMP
1 John 2:15-16 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]–these do not come from the Father but are from the {kingdom(s) of the} world [itself]. AMP

Why is sharing our testimony to win lost sinners to Jesus Christ and then to disciple them to a firm and true faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, Lord God, and Master so important and necessary? It is because God shared with us in Genesis 1:28 that humans are to be fruitful and multiply to fill the earth with children. This is why abortion – the murdering of unborn and now we are murdering just born babies – is such an abomination to God! This is why all types of contraception is an abomination to God! This is why man’s acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle and gay marriage which does not naturally reproduce children is such an abomination to God!

© Your eyes saw my substance (before time began), being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written…

What we must understand is that God the Holy Spirit has TWO miraculous works in the life of EVERY person on earth. His first work – a physical supernatural miracle is being present at the instant of conception by joining the husband’s right sperm to his wife’s egg to produce God’s foreknown and predestined offspring whether male or female that God knows by name, and then placing one’s eternal spirit in the “human offspring/fruit of the loins.”
Psalms 139:16 {Father} Your eyes saw my substance {BEFORE time began}, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days {You planned} fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. NKJV
Ecclesiastes 11:5 As you know not what is the way of the wind {Holy Spirit John 3:5}, or how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a pregnant woman {at conception}, even so you know not the work of God, Who does all. AMP

His second work – a spiritual supernatural miracle, the bearing of spiritual fruit that lasts for all eternity with God – is to use Christ’s spiritual adopted children to use their testimony and by the Spirit’s leading using God’s Word to witness to the above offspring with an eternal spirit to show them their sins so he/she may be saved.
John 16:8-11 “And He {God the Holy Spirit}, when He comes, will convict the world {put you name ______________} concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; 11 and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged. NASU
