April's Answers and Apples

Were you looking for April showers? Here it is from the Heavens.

Zechariah 8:12 (KJV) For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.

April's apples and answers are designed to get you a place of knowing and receiving what God wants you to have. It is meant to cause you to look at where you are and to understand His purpose. Are you a part of a local assembly?

Hebrews 10:25 (KJV) Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Are you doing the work of the Kingdom? Are you being fed by you favorite TV Minister? Do you feel out of place or stagnate, like you are not growing? Are you consistent at your Church? These Questions have answers. As you search yourself and your actions God will give you the answers. What is the expected end? It is for you to mature to do the works. It is agreed that You must feed your spirit man least it die. You go to Church to hear, and to learn of Him. Until you are matured to rightly divide the word of God and you develop a life style of eating the word, you will need someone to feed you. We will never know it all. But Our God knows all things.

Romans 10:14 (KJV) How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? This teaching is not in anyway a form of Judgment nor is it's intent to provoke rebellion.

1 Corinthians 14:33 (KJV) For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. It is a biblical teaching to propel you to a place of knowing where you fit in the Body of Christ.

John 15:4-5 (KJV) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. [5] I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

I was talking to a dear Friend about being out of place at Church. She told me of a council she received for a Friend of hers. She likens it unto The Church being an Apple tree with lots of apples and a pear. All the apples praised alike, comfortable and content. She being the pear had been among the apples so long that she thought something was wrong with her. She spoke in tongues, worshipped God in all of her doings, and her praise was different. Something was missing. She was neither comfortable nor content. She inquired of the Lord and He showed her that she was a pear and she needed to find a pear tree where they spoke in tongues, worshipped God in all of their doings, and their Praise was like hers. What type of Church do you belong to?

His New Jerusalem International Worship and Training Center is a Pomegranate tree. So the people that God sends to our Church is full of gifts and talents that will need to be nurtured, Nourished, and birthed for they have many seeds and much work to do for the Kingdom. They will be able to reproduce after their own kind. You may ask can any other fruit grow on this Pomegranate tree. The answer is, No. However, they can give their lives to Christ, but they will soon feel like the pear out of place, different, and uncomfortable. It can be nurtured and nourished but it will not be able to mature into the fruit it is supposed to be and neither will it reproduce after it's own kind.

James 3:12 (KJV) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. In the beginning all seeds look similar if you are not skilled you will not know the difference. All seeds must die first; they must fall on good ground, and receive nourishment in order to grow. Once it grows you will be more able to determine what type of fruit it is. It is like a New Christian. They come to a Church, Give their lives to Christ, The process begins of dying to their sinful ways. They attend Church to Hear and Learn of God.

Ecclesiastes 2:5 (KJV) I made me gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them of all kind of fruits: There are many diversities of places to worship God. If they are in a Church that is designed to focus on salvation, they are in the right place for that time. Their search of why they are here in the earth begins. To avoid Church hopping you must submit to the authority, which God has placed over you. God is a God of Order. So to inquire of the Lord first would be the proper thing to do.

1 Corinthians 14:40 (KJV) Let all things be done decently and in order. The Spirit of God led you there and He will lead you to where He wants you to be.

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

Matthew 12:33 (KJV) 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.

If you inspect your spiritual foundation you will find that the people who have imparted into your spiritual growth will be what God is building on. You will always remember what they taught you just as you remember your ABC's.

Ephesians 4:11-24 (KJV) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; [12] For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: [13] Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: [14] That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; [15] But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: [16] From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. [17] This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, [18] Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: [19] Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. [20] But ye have not so learned Christ; [21] If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: [22] That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; [23] And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; [24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
