[Proverbs 27:18]  Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: “so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.”

[John 14:6]  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

[John 6:29]  Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

[Romans 1:17]  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

[1st Samuel 15:23]  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

[Matthew 11:28]  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

[Psalms 51:17]  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

[Matthew 16:24]  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

[Isaiah 57:15]  For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

[Matthew 19:21]  Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

[John 12:24]  Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.


[John 8:34-40]  Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.


[John 4:24]  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

[John 15:3-8]  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, 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: for 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.

[Luke 8:15]  But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

[2 Corinthians 8:21]  Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.

[1 Peter 2:12]  Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.


[Jeremiah 44:10]  They are not humbled [honest contrite heart] even unto this day, neither have they feared [Wise in their own eyes], nor walked in my law [just shall live by faith], nor in my statutes [this is the work of God is to believe on the one whom He has sent for Jesus Christ is the only way the only truth and the only life], that I set before you and before your fathers.


[Ephesians 5:19]  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;


All the new testament verses and word do  depict “ a humble spirit of edifying each other in truth and praise to the glory of God.


[1st Corinthians 12:24-26]  For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.  And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.


How does the body suffer? “schism”, “lack of faith in listening to the Holy Spirit of Christ by not perfecting ears to hear”of His word to do it, pride, no charity, unbelief, loving and looking for the praise of men, and fear loving their selves more than Christ.


[1st Corinthians 13:4-7]  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.


How does the body partake of the honor of God? Being found in Christ and obeying His word enligtened to the believer by the Holy Spirit.

[1st Corinthians 13.4-7 above]

Romans 11:14  If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

[Here he is talking about his Jewish friends not in the Lord Jesus.]



[John 6:63-64]  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning [of the speaking situation He was in at that time not from the beginning of the world for God is no respecter of persons.] who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.


[John 10:25-27]  Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”  So where would the term “Iron sharpeneth Iron” fit in here?

“[John 10:27]  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”.  They are not contentious nor argumentative but humble having their ears open to hear Christ’s truth from anywhere it comes to walk in it.  Anyone that is contrary to this is not a humbled person nor seeking to glorify God by his or her life. They are trying to pretend and hide from God, if that is possible, which it ain’t, like an Ostrich hiding only its head in the sand thinking no one sees it.


Religious tradition and denying the truth, is to excuse one having to be placed in a position to see oneself, by the Holy Ghost and the word of God, to adhere to the life of Christ in faith to live holy.  It gives room for excuses and self justification to turn from the truth through arguments, the proving of ones point. It does not provoke unto love for Christ in obedience to the Holy Spirit in faith, but obedience to religious law minded traditions, imaginations and rote Theology to keep ones life in this life.


The crucified ones do not do fight with truth and light but welcome it knowing they will be closer to Christ and more like Him. “True” saints are not rebellious against truth [light] to the heart. They will stand on correction by the word of God, take it and change. “[Matthew 5:6]  Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” True Saints have the heart of David “to chase after the truth in the inner man to conform to Christ” not religious traditions or self righteous rules and laws that war against faith in Christ making one unable to commune with Him through the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Christ and His truth of His word. Jesus said what belongs to the Father belongs to Me and what is Mine [meaning you in Him as well as the gift of the Holy Ghost to believers from God the Father] is God’s. So the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ as well as the Spirit of the Lord.

[Proverbs 27:18]  Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: “so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.”

Paul did not go around trying to prove some kind of theological point of view in an argumentative or contentious fashion but was preaching and teaching the truth of God, the gospel of Jesus Christ and the now Kingdom of God, having the life of Christ and dead to sin, for people to repent and follow. He wanted people to live in Christ and not die in their sin and rebellion. As Jesus was so was Paul, which Paul wanted to know Him more and the power of His resurrection. This isn’t religious Theology but living in Christ and dead to sin, to know the power of His resurrection to make us alive in Him and forever to be with Him having eternal life now holy, righteous, and perfect in Jesus Christ.


[Romans 10:17]  So then faith [in Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God] cometh by hearing, and hearing [keeping, walking, doing, joy in the Lord] by the word of God.

[Hebrews 1:2-3]  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
