*The Author and Finisher of Our Faith*
Good afternoon

Praise the Lord God I know it might be amonth when you are in your Houses/ Homes allow me to use this opportunity to to tell you these Good News but before I continue allow me to speak briefly about the Glorious Jesus in Hebrews as the author and finisher of our Faith

_Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith._ ( *Heb. 12:1– 2)*

- The thought here is *Jesus as the Author and Finisher* of our faith, Glory to God. What a sight to see our Lord Jesus Christ come forth clothed in His own majesty and glory, as no man was ever.

- He is clothed in majesty, What compassion He had when He saw the struggling multitude!

- When He saw the crowds in need, His heart yearned with compassion. How He handled the bread as in *Matthew 14:15–21; 15:32–38.*

- No man ever handled bread like Jesus did. I can imagine how people looked into His face and see His eyes glisten as He sees the multitude. He said to Philip, “I would like to feed these people; how much would it take to feed them?” Philip said, “Eight months’ wages is not sufficient, and besides, this is a desert place.” .....in *John 6:5–7;* *Matthew 14:15.*

- Philip had forgotten that he had the Master, who is the author and finisher of everything.

- Your Faith should be in JESUS CHRIST, the author & the finisher of our Faith
In many times people have trusted fellow human being, government officials, The power they have, many have trusted weapons, expensive things they have, many had trusted America but If JESUS CHRIST is not in the Equation, you can’t have life

*Let Us pray:*
Dear God, we had trusted many things and had not placed Our Faith in JESUS, help us to do so in JESUS' NAME
Amen
Shalom Family

And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which yr fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Isaiah 6:8
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Judges 6:12,14
[12]And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, The Lord is with you, you mighty man of courage.
[14]The Lord turned to him and said, Go in this your might, and you shall save Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you?

√ when God visits, he sees His plan for you not your plan for your life
Judges 13:3,5
[3]And the Angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and said to her, Behold, you are barren and have no children, but you shall become pregnant and bear a son.

Acts 9:6

[19]For I through the Law [under the operation of the curse of the Law] have myself died to the Law and all the Law's demands upon me, so that I may [henceforth] live to and for God.
[20]I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Amos 7:14-15
[14]Then Amos said to Amaziah, I was no prophet [by profession]! Neither was I a prophet's son; [but I had my occupation] I was a herdsman and a dresser of sycamore trees and a gatherer of sycamore figs.
[15]And the Lord took me as I followed the flock and the Lord said to me, Go, prophesy to My people Israel.

2 Corinthians 4:8-18
[8]We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair;
[9]We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed;
[10]Always carrying about in the body the liability and exposure to the same putting to death that the Lord Jesus suffered, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown forth by and in our bodies.
[11]For we who live are constantly [experiencing] being handed over to death for Jesus' sake, that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be evidenced through our flesh which is liable to death.
[12]Thus death is actively at work in us, but [it is in order that our] life [may be actively at work] in you.
[13]Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak, [Ps. 116:10.]
[14]Assured that He Who raised up the Lord Jesus will raise us up also with Jesus and bring us [along] with you into His presence.
[15]For all [these] things are [taking place] for your sake, so that the more grace (divine favor and spiritual blessing) extends to more and more people and multiplies through the many, the more thanksgiving may increase [and redound] to the glory of God.
[16]Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.
[17]For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!],
[18]Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.

[15]And Moses said to the Lord, If Your Presence does not go with me, do not carry us up from here!

Daniel 3:1-30
we take an example of 3 confident men who were never intimidated by the authorities to denounce their faith in God.
The Lord saw their trust in Him and intervined with His safety presence.

Notes.
√ The confidence we have in /when we have Him. Vs 17,28.
we express and confess our confidence in Him.
Psalm 23:4
Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.

√ His presence gives us life and safety.
His presence is more evident in times of need.
Psalm 46:1-3
GOD IS our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.
[2]Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas,
[3]Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

~~In contrary, Jesus disciples feared the storm on the lake, even when they had Him in the boat, But when they awake Him, he calmed the storm and anabled them cross to their destiny.
Luke 8:22-25
[22]One of those days He and His disciples got into a boat, and He said to them, Let us go across to the other side of the lake. So they put out to sea.
[23]But as they were sailing, He fell off to sleep. And a whirlwind revolving from below upwards swept down on the lake, and the boat was filling with water, and they were in great danger.
[24]And the disciples came and woke Him, saying, Master, Master, we are perishing! And He, being thoroughly awakened, censured and blamed and rebuked the wind and the raging waves; and they ceased, and there came a calm.
[25]And He said to them, [Why are you so fearful?] Where is your faith (your trust, your confidence in Me–in My veracity and My integrity)? And they were seized with alarm and profound and reverent dread, and they marveled, saying to one another, Who then is this, that He commands even wind and sea, and they obey Him?

√ The glorification after the trials.
Vs 29-30
There are several promotions that are dependant on the level of the dust that the enemy raises.
Isaiah 59:19
So [as the result of the Messiah's intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight.

[05/06/21]   "BEAR MUCH FRUIT"
BY
RANDALL J BREWER

There are two super important things that you need to learn in life. You need to know what's important, and you need to learn what's not important. For example, some people think texting their friends is more important than staying in the proper lane on the highway. Or how about the pleasure seeking father who would rather play golf with his friends than attend his son's championship ball game? You need to learn what's important in life and what's valuable and what's worth spending your time and energy and your resources on. If you don't discern what's important you could spend your entire life on that which is not important. The truth be told, some things are not as important as people think they are. People are wasting days of their lives doing nothing important. They spend two hours fixing their hair and another two deciding what clothes to wear. Some people spend an entire day shopping and looking for things but leave the mall without buying anything.

Why do people spend three hours deciding which pair of shoes to buy and a couple days later spend more time taking them back to the store? If they were led by the Spirit they wouldn't have bought the wrong pair in the first place. Foolish people waste time doing whatever comes up, whatever their friends want them to do, and whatever strikes their mind and tickles their flesh. They do things that are not important and do it for days and weeks and months and years. The end result is a wasted life, a life that bears no fruit for the kingdom of God. When it comes to time, you can never get back that which you've wasted. Once it's gone, it's gone forever. The most valuable thing you have is your time. Not your job, your house, your car, or your money. You can't put a price on time for it is irreplaceable and precious beyond cost. Only a fool will take something that is priceless and trade it for that which is worth nothing, something that is common and useless. Still, people do this every day.

People think they have all the time in the world to do the things they're supposed to do when suddenly the curtain drops on their life and they pass on to the other side. Time is flying by quickly and there are only a few days left before it will all be over. Heb. 9:27 says, "It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment." People act like life goes on forever and don't realize that their lifetime is a very brief amount of time. James 4:14 says, "For what is your life? It is even a v***r that appears for a little time and then vanishes away." The Message Bible says, "You're nothing but a wisp of fog, catching a brief bit of sun before disappearing." Job had a revelation of this when he wrote, "My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle. Oh, remember that my life is a breath!" (Job 7:6,7). Time is precious so don't waste it. You get to live your life one time and one time only so spend it on eternal things and not on that which won't mean anything next week or next year. In just a few more days you're going to look up and your life is going to be over.

Time is precious but it is also short. Your life is like a mist. You're here one moment and gone the next. Years come and go quickly like telephone poles flying by on the highway. People live like this life is all there is and what they're doing now they'll be doing forever. They don't realize that nothing that's happening now is going to last very long. Not where they're living, not where they're working, and not with the people they associate with. Things are different today than it was yesterday and things will be different tomorrow. Change happens to everybody but soon and very soon it's all going to be over. When the time comes for your departure from this planet you don't want to look back at your life and find out that you've wasted a great portion of your time on things that have no eternal significance. Check up on yourself and take account of your life. Ask yourself, "What am I doing with the one life I've been given?" What am I doing and why am I doing it? What's it worth and what is it producing?

Don't live for self-gratification and don't make being rich and famous your primary goal in life. Reject the notion that "He who dies with the most toys wins" and "Let's eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die." Both are a lie of the devil and he'll never reveal to you the severe consequences of living solely to satisfy your flesh. People who think this world is all there is live to satisfy their own lustful desires with no regard for anybody else nor do they consider or worry above the consequences. These are the people who need to take heed to the words of the apostle Paul written in Eph. 5:14, "Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light." Most of the world is either spiritually dead and not born-again or else they are born-again but are asleep. They're saved but are doing nothing with their lives to advance the kingdom of God. It is time for the church to wake up and get rid of all those mundane things that rob you of your time.

It has been estimated that people spend one year of their life looking for their socks and deciding what clothes to put on. Spend more time with God and He'll show you what's important and what's not important. He'll show you what to do and what not to do. He'll show you what to change and do more of and what to change and do less of. He'll show you how to do things in less time and how to get more results from your labor. Prov. 9:10,11 says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you." With wisdom and God's direction you can produce more in one year than the previous ten years put together. God can make you fruitful beyond your wildest dreams. This is what your future and your life should look like. It doesn't matter what your background is. You may have been unfruitful for fifty years but you can be fruitful now. It's never too late to begin.

God is gracious and He loves you so much He'll help you make up for lost time. He'll restore the years the locust and the caterpillar have eaten up (Joel 2:25). You're here, you're breathing, and God is still on the throne. There's still time to be fruitful and do something good with your life. Don't go to heaven empty handed. God is expecting you to bear fruit and plenty of it. Jesus said in John 15:1,2, "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit." You are not here just to get saved and then wait to die so you can go to heaven. Religious folks put a high emphasis on getting saved and going to church but say very little or nothing about bearing fruit. People are dazzled by church services with laser shows and bright lights and smoking mirrors and loud music. People get amazed and moon-eyed and follow these preachers down the path not knowing where it will lead.

People should not be so gullible and so easily swayed. The Bible says you will know them by their fruit, not by what they say or dream or by what type of brilliant show they put on. Some people all they do is talk, talk, talk but produce no fruit. You can put any type of label you want on an empty can but the bottom line is, "Where's the fruit?" Churches today are filled with much activity. There are plenty of meals to eat and much gossip to go around with all that food. Sunday services have turned the church into a social club with no thought of teaching on denying the selfish appetites of the flesh and rising up to advance the kingdom of God. These people have a form of godliness but deny its power (2 Tim. 3:5).
Barrenness and doing nothing for God is a serious thing and has severe consequences. God expects a return on what He's poured into your life. He expects you to bear much fruit and to do what you're supposed to do.

Ezekiel 15 tells the "Parable of the Vine" that the Lord spoke to the prophet. It says in vs.2-4, "Son of man, how is the wood of the vine better than any other wood, the vine branch which is among the trees of the forest? Is wood taken from it to make any object? Or can men make a peg from it to hang any vessel on? Instead, it is thrown into the fire for fuel; the fire devours both ends of it, and its middle is burned. Is it useful for any work?" This passage of scripture says that branches are good for either bearing fruit or for burning. They are not good for building anything and they can not produce their own life. The branches actually display and bear the fruit of the vine. Jesus is the Vine and all born-again believers should be thinking about being fruitful every day of their lives. Going to church and warming a pew is not being fruitful. Most people don't even care if they're fruitful or not. For them the zeal languishes, the professed love is gone, prayer is neglected, the sanctuary is forsaken, and the soul becomes like a withered branch reserved for the fire on the last great day.

God will take from His church all professed Christians who give no evidence by their lives that they are truly united to the Vine, the Lord Jesus Christ. Heb. 10:30,31 warns, "For we know Him who said, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord.' And again, 'The Lord will judge His people.' It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." The Message Bible says, "This is no light matter. God has warned us that He'll hold us to account and make us pay. He was quite explicit: 'Vengeance is mine, and I won't overlook a thing,' and 'God will judge His people,' Nobody's getting by with anything, believe me." Jesus said in Matt. 9:37,38, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." We are here for only a brief amount of time and you have got a job to do. You are here to produce and bear much fruit for the Master. If you are already bearing fruit you can produce a hundred times more than you have been.

God can make you fruitful beyond your wildest dreams. The question is, "What are you doing with your time?" If you are striving to serve God and please Him with it then that time becomes precious to Him. When you serve God with the time you now have and show Him what you would do if you had more, He'll give you the resources that will help free you up and give you more time with which to serve Him. He'll give you the finances so that you won't have to work all that overtime. He'll give you good health so you don't have to sit in the doctor's office for hours at a time. He'll give you a new car so you don't have to waste time waiting for the old one to get fixed. If you are faithful over a little time God will make you ruler over much time. Be a good steward with what you have now and God will give you more. He'll give you the things that will help you redeem the time (Eph. 5:16) and save more hours and days. He'll give you more money, more ability, more opportunity.

Let God lead you and make every day of your life count. He will lead you to greater fruitfulness when you abide in the Vine. Withered up branches don't produce any fruit so let nothing hinder the full flow of His Spirit and His life that causes you to produce an abundance of fruit that pleases Him. What good is a branch that bears no fruit? Every branch that isn't bearing fruit needs to start doing so in a hurry before it becomes withered and cut off. This is serious business. Bearing fruit begins with the fear of the Lord. Abide in the Vine and get God involved in everything you do. The life is in the Vine and if that life is blocked the branch dries up and withers. When people don't stay connected to the Vine their creativity is cut off and their joy is dried up. They lead a dead, boring, fruitless life. To bear much fruit you need to stop wasting so much time and be led by God. Prov. 11:30 says, "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life."

When you do what God tells you to do, it will be profitable for there will be life in it. It will be valuable and it will touch the lives of other people. It will quicken them and make them more alive. It will draw them deeper into the things of God. The Greater One inside you will lead you so that your life will be more sufficient and more profitable. Slow down and take time to hear from Him. You don't have to do a lot of the things you think you have to do. Check your heart and be more particular about the decisions you make. Prov. 3:5,6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." If you're more selective, you'll be more effective. People today are getting worn out doing things they shouldn't be doing. They're not being led by God and end up being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Things happen that wouldn't have happened had they taken the time to get before Him and be led by His direction. Ask God what you should do. Remember, pride assumes but humility asks.

You are a co-laborer with God (1 Cor. 3:9). You are not called to do things "for" God, you are called to do things "with" God. Do what He says. Don't add to it or take anything away. Don't change anything because you're not going to have a better idea than God. Jesus said, "Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in Me" (John 15:4). The word "abide" means 'stay' and Jesus is saying to stay in Him and He will stay in you. The enemy will tempt you to leave but stay hooked up to the Vine. Stay joined and stay connected. The nature of the flesh is impatience. It doesn't want to stay anywhere for very long. It's flighty. It's here, it's there. With the Lord you have to learn to be still and see and know that He is God. Wait on the Lord and He will renew your strength and He will make your heart strong. To be fruitful you must stay connected to the Vine and have continuous communion with Him.

You can be aware of God and commune with Him all day and all night. Stay in Him and His words will stay in your mind and in your heart and in your mouth. This is the way to make every second count and not waste your precious life here on the earth. You were called to the fellowship of Jesus Christ. The great deeds and miracles in the life of Jesus were a product of His fellowship with the Father. He did not waste His life on fleshly pursuits but did only what the Father told Him to do. He knew what to do and say every minute of every day. Look how much the Father did with Jesus in a little more than three years. What can He do with you in a year, or two, or three? Abide in the Vine and make your life count.
There are many courses in the university of life. Some are painful but God uses these required lessons to drive people to a more intimate relationship with Him that in turn will produce spiritual fruit that remains for all eternity.

Jesus said that branches that produce fruit get purged and pruned so that they will bear much fruit that remains and glorifies God. Pruning involves the cutting away of dead branches, but also the cutting back of living branches to enhance the quality and quantity of the crop. The worst thing God could do would be to leave you alone and let you have your own way but, if you'll get before Him and listen to Him, He'll trim you up. He'll show you in the days to come those things that are a waste of your time and resources that need to be cut off. There is no such thing as a fruit tree that doesn't need trimming. Even the very best fruit trees and vines need some dead stuff cut off so it can put out new shoots and new branches and thus become more fruitful. Purging may not sound good but it's better than being cut off and burned. 1 Peter 5:10 states, "But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you."

The Message Bible says, "So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won't last forever. It won't be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ - eternal and glorious plans they are! - will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes He does."
Purging is not a pleasant experience and most people wouldn't want to go through it again. Jesus said it was like plucking your eye out or cutting your hand off (Matt. 5:29,30). A useless life is an unproductive life, a life that bears no fruit. Start up that spiritual chain-saw and cut off those things that are hindering your walk with God and holding you back from bearing much fruit. Every believer needs some w**d pulling and limb trimming and dead stuff removal. Discipline yourself and ask God to show you every hindering thing in your life that needs to be removed. Disdain the things that are wasting your time and your resources and your life.

If you live for only what's down here you are throwing your life away. You only have a short window of opportunity to produce fruit that remains for all eternity. If all you do is live to please yourself and try to make your flesh comfortable then you have thrown away something that is precious and beyond price. There is a God, there is a heaven, there is a kingdom that lasts forever, and there is a judgment to come. The biggest fear in your life should be that you not obey God. Don't be concerned about how much money you have or if you'll be comfortable in your retirement years. Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you (Matt. 6:33). Now is the time to work. God wants you to enjoy your life but don't make having fun your top priority. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. You've got to double up on your work effort because there are millions of believers doing nothing and don't care about anything but their own ease and comfort. God says, "You fool! This night your soul will be required of you" (Luke 12:20).

As painful as pruning may be, those who go through the process wouldn't trade it for anything in the world for there is a benefit that comes through the pain that takes place. 2 Cor. 5:17 says, "Old things have passed away; behold, all things become new." Old branches that produce no fruit have become new branches that bear much fruit. What a glorious day that will be when it is revealed that you didn't waste your time, money, and opportunities on things that don't matter in the long run. Instead, you were fruitful and the Father was glorified by all you did for the kingdom. When you love God and people you just automatically want to do more. If you have a heart toward God, you'll want to do more this year than you did last year. Titus 3:14 (NIV) says, "Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives." Jesus said you will be known by the fruit you produce (Matt. 7:15).

There are wolves who wear sheep's clothing and people are swayed because they're not looking at the fruit. They're looking at the outward appearance and the brilliance of the show they put on. Jesus said you will know them not by their beliefs and opinions and their good intentions but by what they produce. Ask, "Where's the fruit?" What have they produced with their lives and ministry? We don't want to know how they survived the hard times, we want to know what they produced for the kingdom of God. Where's the fruit? The fruit grows on the branch but the power to produce the fruit is in the Vine. This is why every branch must abide in the Vine. You can not bear fruit by yourself with your own effort and good intentions. You can only do it if you abide in the Vine. The more you are connected to Him, the more full of life you are, the more vibrant you will be, and the more fruit you will produce. Your energy level and your patience will soar and you'll be able to do those things that really matter and count.

You'll be led by the Spirit and you'll know what to do in every situation. One of the most tormenting things in life is being confused and not knowing what to do. That darkness is a result of withering, of not abiding in the Vine, of not being connected and trying to do your own thing. You don't hook up to God for a few moments, you've got to stay in His presence all day long, at work and at play. Is. 26:3 says, "You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because He trusts in You." If you don't know what to do, you won't have peace. But if you'll deny the flesh and say to Him, "Not my will but Your will be done," He'll show you what to do. As you contribute to His work and His plan and His kingdom you'll be spending your life wisely. The end will be here faster than you know and when it does you can hold your head up and say you ran your race, you finished your course. And when you are asked, "Where's the fruit?," you can say with all boldness and confidence, "Come, let me show you."
