“You blind Pharisees! First wash the inside of the cup and the dish, and then the outside will become clean, too.” (It doesn’t work the other way around.)
Concerning Dec. 21, 2012.
This is what the Word says about that.
“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.
Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.”
“Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.”
“Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God.”
What kind of fruit grows on your tree? How often do you get pruned?
