God's Sword of Truth - The Word
"FRUIT" - meaning your works....your way of life.... what you do in the flesh....what you believe....and what you follow.
It's not what you speak, but what you live everyday. Many speak great words of wisdom of the Word of God but do not show it in the way they live. So goes your heart which shows the real way you believe.
You can say you know the Lord, you can say you love Him, even then He knows your heart. But if you do not live the Lord's Word, your faith is shipwrecked. You may, in all appearance, be a holy man, a so-called Reverend or Minister, but your fruits will betray you.
It is written, by their fruits you shall know them. MATT. 7:16-20...."Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." Don't tell me how holy you are, or what good you have done. Let me see it, let the Lord know it, it is He that shall reward you, not me. Religious people go to hell! Good people go to hell! Remember, there are no religions in Heaven, just Christians, those who were Christ-like on this earth and agreed as ONE WITH CHRIST in everything, and they got there on the same one-way road. They lived their faith in Jesus Christ.
"And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. - That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. - And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:" - JOHN 17:11,21,22
