The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. (Galatians 5:22 & 23) To sum it up, be nice.
Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits.
The way to get the fruits, is to pick them.
I have 3 peach trees and a pear tree in my yard. This year we had a bumper crop. I picked up the fruit from off the ground and put them in bowels. I sorted them. The green ones were put in a bowl and put it on the picnic table outside in the (son) for a day or two until they ripened. The rotten ones got fed to the cows. The good fruit was brought into the house, where I cut them up and put them into the refrigerator or freezer. You see if your fruit is too green it is usable, but it is better if you wait a few days. If your fruit is rotten, it draws flies. Yep, if you don’t use your fruit, it will become rotten and draw demons. If you don’t use it, you lose it! Start using your fruits. RIGHT NOW!
I have been reading Smith Wigglesworth and I started thinking about those old-time preachers. At the alter call, they would line everyone up who wanted prayer, and walk down the line. They would take the palm of their hand and smack you on the forehead. And say verry loudly, I COMMAND YOU, BE HEALED, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! The people would fall under the power of Holy Spirit. And they were healed! It worked and it lasted.
So I started an experiment. In my imagination, I would walk up to a person, smack them on the head, and say, I COMMAND YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, BE NICE! Ha! Ha! So far, it has worked. Sometimes, I smack myself on the forehead. Giggle
Sometimes, if you are sick, it makes you grouchy. But sometimes, a bad attitude can make you sick. Which came first? The chicken or the egg? Doesn’t really matter. The point is, if Holy Spirit will change someone’s attitude and make them be nice, it will also create a healing. So, when you hit them on the head you are actually doing them a favor! Oh this is so funny!
Now, don’t hit your spouse on the head, and tell them I told you to do it. That would not be funny! And remember, I did tell you to do it in your imagination, or in other words, when you are in the Spirit.
Daddy used to say, “I want to be a loving liver!” lol You see, if you want to be manifested, if you want immortality, you must Love. It is easier to love someone when they are nice to you.
This may help facilitate the circumcision of the Heart.
Colossians 3:8 put off, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication and don’t lie.
This may be a way to help your friends and loved ones to accomplish this. You can’t rule and reign with your present sin nature and neither can your neighbor. Or if you need to, you can tell yourself to be nice.
Deuteronomy 30:6 and 4:4 Jeremiah 4:4 say to circumcise your heart so that you may live.
Jeremiah 9:26 says that circumcision of the heart is for the New Testament believers not for the Old Testament.
If you believe it, You can receive it.
Forever in His Love,
