Study of John Chapter 15
I am the True Vine, and my Father is the Husbandman. Every branch in me that bear not fruit He takes away; and every branch that bear fruit, He purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Read Isaiah Chapter 5 and John Chapter 15
Reminder: Yahshua did not come to destroy the Law, but fulfill and rightly interpret
The Most High GOD, the Creator of all there is, was, and ever will be sent many prophets, to warn His people to humble themselves and pray, seek His face and turn from their wicked way, then He would hear from Heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land. In these latter times, the Most High GOD, sent His Son.
Believe in His Son Yahshua and repent for the remission of sin.
Yahshua is the “True Vine” that the Holy Father, which is in Heaven, sent to bless us, in these latter times. Every branch [believers] that abides in Him, bear “True Vine” fruit.
If we [Jews and Gentiles] are attached to Yahshua the “True Vine” whom the Holy Father sent into the world for the salvation of mankind, to proclaim the gospel of the Kingdom of YHVH/GOD, then the “ Light” of Yahshua will shine forth from within us, beaming forth the good fruit from heaven, and lighting the way for others to see their way out of darkness.
The Law came by Moses, but Grace and Truth came by Yahshua ha Mashiach/Jesus Christ. The Law came to identify sin, for how can a person know sin, unless there is an identifier of sin. The Law served as an instructor, until the time of the Mashiach, who is the walking, living and breathing WORD of YHVH and now brings His WORD us, with GRACE and TRUTH.
Yahshua and His disciples extensively quoted from the Hebrew Scriptures. It is vital that we know the WHOLE of the Holy Scriptures, they testify of our Holy Father and His Kingdom, His love, and His PLAN of salvation for mankind.
My Father is the Husbandman
Yahshua’s Holy Father is the owner in charge of the vineyard. He tends His vineyard by examining the development of produce. Unfruitful branches are removed from the vine, and fruit bearing branches are cleansed or pruned, in order to “bring forth more fruit”. John 5:30 (KJV)
Yahshua stated: “I can of mine own self do nothing”. Notice how Yahshua recognizes His dependence upon His Father, who is the One True and Living GOD. Yahushua further stated: “If a man love me, he will keep my Words; and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loves me not keeps not my sayings and the Word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me”. John 14:23-24 (KJV)
Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you.
It is the Spirit that quickens (makes alive, vitalizes), the flesh profits nothing. The Words that I speak unto you they are Spirit, and they are life. John 6:63 (KJV)
The LORD GOD formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7 (KJV)
If any man hear my [Yahshua speaking] Words, and believe not, I judge him not, for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejects me, and receives not my Words, hath one that judges him; the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. I have not spoken of myself but the Father which sent me, He gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. I know that His commandment is life everlasting. Therefore, whatsoever I speak, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. John 12:47-50 (KJV)
Sanctify them through thy Truth: thy Word is Truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them [Yahshua’s disciples] into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the Truth. John 17:17-19 (KJV)
Abide in the Living, Breathing WORD of the One True and Living GOD
Yahshua is the Word of GOD made Flesh John chapter 1
Abide in me (Yahshua), 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. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit, without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does, but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 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. These things I command you, that ye love one another.
John 15:1-17 (KJV)
