The Acts or The Ax
You can only produce according to the seed that is in you or according to the seed that you are of. “Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?” (Mathew 7:16). Do men gather tomatoes from a cucumber vine or grapes from a watermelon vine? The vine can only produce no more than what is in the life of its own seed. When you know where the seed comes from you will know what kind of fruit to expect. Jesus said “Ye do the deeds of your father” (John 8:41). Jesus speaking to the unbeliever said, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44). Why will they do the lusts of their Father the devil which are characteristic to him? Why are their actions evil producing agents? The answer is simple, because they are of their father’s seed and that is all that seed can produce. They are of the seed of their father who is a liar himself, one who speaks falsehood. He, being the father of lies and all that is false, makes him the father of false prophets! A corrupt tree can only produce evil and corruption, because it’s of a corrupt and worthless diseased seed. Whereas, a good tree will produce and bring forth that which is good, that which is sound and healthy according to the seed life that it is of. The vine has no choice but to manifest the life of the seed that it is of!
The tares, like the false prophets, that Jesus spoke of that would come to us as “wolves in sheep’s clothing.,” (Matthew7:14) though they may be dressed in sheep’s clothing remember behind all that, inwardly they are devouring, ravening wolves. The tares may appear as true wheat but they cannot produce true wheat grain because there is no life in their seed to produce it. Oh, they can have great campaigns and project their voices with a scholarly degree of speech and expression, but they are unable to produce sound fruit! They can only produce some evil, counterfeit, a falsehood, because they are of the seed of lies and falsehood. That is the seed life that is within them! The seed that is in them carries the genetic material and characteristic of that which is evil and corrupt. All it will produce or even can produce is evil and corruption. Lies, falsehoods and murder are all that can be found in the seed of a corrupt tree to be produced! Remember, they can produce only according to the seed source that they are of! Jesus said you would know them by the fruit they produce and by this you will know what seed they are of. Now take note of what Jesus said concerning the believer in John 14:12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you. He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.” How is this? Once again the answer is simple. The born again believer is of the Word Seed Family and Jesus is the Word! The born again believer is of good seed and therefore destined to bring forth good fruit. The true believer is of the new creation seed and Jesus is the beginner of the “New Creation Word Seed Family!” Just as the corrupt trees can only produce according to the nature of life that is in the seed within them, so will the believers only produce according to the seed that is within them. The Church of Acts produced according to “Word Seed” and they prospered! The corrupt trees, every one of them, will be cut down and it seems I can’t say that loud enough! John said “And now the ax is laid unto the root of the trees.”(Luke 3:9). The corrupt trees in politics that want to corrupt our government and override our United States Constitution in order to fulfill their own lusts are among those which will be cut down and cast into the fire (Luke 3:9). The corrupt trees in religion that wants to pervert the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ are among those that will be cut down! All of them “Will be cut down and cast into the fire.” John said, the Ax is laid unto the very root source of their corrupt fruit. The source of their corrupt and evil fruit lies within the seed that is in them and all they are capable of producing and bringing forth is more corruption. What will be the fate of the righteous trees? They will produce according to the seed that is in them, according to the seed that they are of! They know the Word Seed is their source and they will continue to bring forth fruit in their season even in old age! Their leaf shall not and will not fade or wither! Whatever that righteous tree does it will prosper and come to maturity! (Psalms 1:3). The righteous tree will continue doing and acting upon the Word of Faith! “For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (Psalms 1:6). Those who choose to alienate themselves from God’s will shall perish and their end shall come to great ruin.
