The 9 Fruits of the Holy Spirit
5 Fold Ministry Gifts
( Ephesians 4:7-13)
9 Spiritual Gifts
(1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
- discerning of spirits
- interpretation of tongues
The fruits of the holy spirit are evidence that the spirit dwells within you. The spirit that was gifted to you upon the Messiah's death, and resurrection. John 14:27-29 states:
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Additionally, the scriptures say in Matthew 7:15-20 you will know them by their fruit.
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
What is Spirituality?
Spirituality is an acknowledgment of a spiritual world. It is typically void of any standard belief system. Typically people who identify themselves as spiritual have created their own dogma or religion based on how they live their lives. There is no standard, as the standard tends to change as the individual changes his or her feelings.
Just as energy transmits on a variety of frequencies, and data can travel through radio waves that our eyes cannot see until it decodes across a computer screen, the spirit realm is equally as real, whether we acknowledge it or not.
How Do I Deal with Adversity?
Adversity is part of life… but so is a blessing! When you walk with Jesus you will face adversity, but you are promised blessings on this earth and salvation, or eternal life in the spiritual realm.
Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 8:17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
What Should My Mind be Focused On?
Romans 8:5-8 King James Version (KJV)
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Present Suffering and Future Glory
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
Why we should walk in the Spirit?
We should walk in the spirit because that is when we are closest to God. That is when we take dominion over our problems and circumstances.
Galatians 5 King James Version (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
In addition to the song, I have written a poetry book titled "Fruit" that you can read along with during your prayer and meditation while listening to the single fruit.
