Pt.#8 (God's Olive Tree Plan, From It's Roots To It's Fruit)- (8-8-20)
(BELOVED, BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT)! But TRY the spirit to see if it’s of God!) Jesus Said: ‘YOU (DISCIPLES) ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH, YOU (DISCIPLES) ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD! Jesus calls His Disciples The Salt of The Earth. Just like Salt adds the flavor to food, we are to add the flavor to ‘The Earth’. A little bit of Salt can make an otherwise bitter taste Better. We Disciples are to be ‘The Force For Good and Righteousness’ that Balances ‘The Bitterness and Ugliness’ of the world and all that is evil, wrong and wicked. In the same way He tells us that we are ‘The Light Of The World’. One Little Lamp can ‘Dispel A Lot Of Darkness’. Just as a’ Lamp On A Stand’ gives ‘Light To The Whole House’, so too we are to be ‘The Force That Dispels The Darkness From The Earth’. In the 2 analogies, Salt and Light are meant to be seen together as ‘One Obedient Force’. Therefore, being ‘The Salt Of The Earth’, is equivalent to being ‘The Light Of The World’. So too, ‘Losing Our Saltiness’ is equivalent to ‘Hiding Our Light Under a Basket’. What is the Saltiness? What is The Light? How can we be Salty? How can we ‘Give Light To Everyone In The House’? ‘COULD IT REALY BE SO SIMPLE AS THE TEXT SAYS’? Our saltiness (That Jesus Warned That We Are Constantly In Danger Of Losing And Therefore Being Worthless To The Kingdom) and our Light (That Jesus Warned That We Are Constantly In Danger Of Concealing And Therefore Being Worthless To The Kingdom), ‘ARE OUR GOOD WORKS (Commandments). Zechariah tells us that 'The Lampstand' with its 72 different parts, is 'The Holy Spirit'! (Zech. 4) To study The Lampstand, is to study The Holy Spirit! Learning about the 72 different characteristics of 'The Lampstand' (Holy Spirit), teaches us how to discern between God's Spirit and the counterfeit spirit of the enemy! Therefore, for Jesus' disciples, it's important to know and understand exactly what those 72 characteristics of The Lampstand (Holy Spirit) are, putting them upon The Lampstand, so THAT MEN CAN SEE OUR GOOD WORKS (His Characteristics) AND GLORIFY OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN!
