The mistake is not in believing the enemy, the mistake is to entertain his conversation. His words are aromatic like honey dew dripping with taste, but the smell of them is poison and the taste of them is why nations fall.
You have made his ideas a bedfellow and his words have become your mantra. Treachery, jealousy and covetousness have become justified and normalized. Where is your character? Where is your Faith? Where is the distinction in your living?
Your mouth extols ME, but your actions deny ME. You are mine in name only, your methods, thoughts and behaviors represent the Evil one, making him your lord. Move away from this foolishness and the desire to be accept by the world.
You are better than this. I made you to produce life and not death. There are relationships and behaviors, that need to be cutoff immediately and you know what they are. You have a choice, cut it yourself or I will begin the process of cutting.
“I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.
