Fruit of D'Vine is the name of our monthly newsletter, based upon the biblical truth that each Christian is a “partaker of the divine nature” (2 Pet. 1:4-KJV), and that those who abide in Christ, the Vine, and are thus living truth, will bear godly fruit just as he did.
The Only Bridge Over Troubled Waters (Christianity 101)
As you know if you read these monthly communiqués, and perhaps also watch our monthly “WWF” teachings, we plan to film our presentation titled Jesus Christ: The Diameter of the Ages from Monday, July 11 through Sunday, July 17 in Orlando FL. We expect the video to be about 20 hours. Between now and then I am immersing myself in developing the content of this unique production, which we are doing because we know of nothing in Christendom like what we will present. I am also working to rehab myself after last month’s hip replacement surgery, as well as aggressively continuing my naturopathic protocol to destroy the cancer that has been attacking me so that I have sufficient energy to film that many hours of teaching in one week.
You Can’t Tell the Players Without a Program
Major League Baseball is now in full swing here in the good old USA, and the above phrase is one that vendors yell as they move about the crowd hawking their scorecards. Knowing who’s who in the game greatly helps a fan identify with his team and more fully enjoy the action. Were I to put a sub-title on the above, it would be: Are We Christians the Israel of God? To the surprise of too many misinformed brethren, the answer is a resounding NO.
Our Treasure is Not Fool's Gold
It’s SPRING! No foolin’! One-fourth of 2016 has already passed, and with it we bid farewell to cold and dark Winter and welcome warm and verdant Spring. As we experience the inexorable passage of the “days of our lives,” we also note our own changing seasons, that is, “periods of time marked by particular conditions.” One day, either when the Lord Jesus gathers us to himself or when we fall asleep in death, the legacy of your earthly life and mine will be completed. What will it be?
Did Jesus Really Die? Is Death An Enemy?
“HE IS RISEN!!!” Here’s the record of when those indescribably glorious, and theretofore unheard of, words were first spoken:Matthew 28:5-7a
But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7a And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead…
That angel is someone I can’t wait to meet! What on earth (or not) did he do to become the first being who got the privilege to proclaim the greatest truth God could speak to man: DEATH, THE MORTAL ENEMY THAT HAS RAVAGED HUMANITY SINCE THE FIRST ADAM CHOSE TO DISOBEY GOD, HAS BEEN CONQUERED BY THE LAST ADAM, WHO OBEYED GOD ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE CROSS.
