The Fruit You Get!

“But not that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.” (Romans 6:22 ESV) I had a dream where I was at a park which had a fig tree in the center. People who passed through that park... Continue Reading →

Blood

"In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood"  (Hebrews 12:4, ESV).

“Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do it, for how should my name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another” (Isaiah‬ ‭48:10-11‬ ‭ESV‬‬). Isaiah 48:10 speaks of a purification, God using... Continue Reading →
