What about the wheat and tares? How do we distinguish between the two? Are you reflecting God on any given day of the week, or do you just warm a bench at the Synagogue or Church? Jack Hibbs is a respected man of God who teaches about the parable of the Tares. Spiritual imposters are everywhere. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you discernment. Galatians 5:22-23 Amplified
1 Timothy 4:1 📣 Jude 1:3

Galatians 1:6-9 📣 Acts 17:11
Is there fruit in your ministry or your church ? “But the fruit of the Spirit, which is the result of His presence within us, is evident in us to others. We love our neighbors with an unselfish concern for others. What breaks the heart of God (ie division; abortion) breaks our heart. The inner Joy of the Spirit of God should exude from us even in the midst of trials. Peace should permeate from us as the world frets about circumstances. Does the watching world witness our remarkable patience, or our calm ability to sit in a traffic jam? We are not to shake our fist and grumble when a driver delays us. An authentic follower of Jesus extends kindness to those who are angry and bitter. Our compassion for the lost and how we demonstrate love to the unlovable is how the Jesus we reflect becomes attractive. The character of a fruitful Christian focuses on the goodness of God and His faithfulness while the eyes of the watching world desires the grace we demonstrate. Without judgment we should be holding our tongue while we listen as others pour out their anger, bitter complaints and concerns. With everything poured out, we then have the opportunity to ask “Do you know Jesus offers His love, forgiveness and eternal life to everyone?” There is no law that forbids Christians from being; loving, joyful, patient, kind, good, faithful, or self-controlled. With honest self-reflection, can you see the fruit of the Spirit working through you? In your church? Is God’s Word honored in your everyday life, not just when you sit in church? Is the name of Jesus spoken with reverence and authority? Do you currently test the things you hear in the news, or from the pulpit against the Holy Bible? It is wise to invite the Holy Spirit to reveal anything in us that does not reflect Christ as God’s hope for glory abides in us.
The Lion wins, not the Liar! God does not dwell in temples made by man, He dwells within us! “Do you not know that the Spirit of God dwells within you?” We are His offspring and we ask “Lord what would You have me do today? Here I am, use me to speak a word of encouragement to someone.” Luke 11:5-13 – The disciples knew Jesus and witnessed the Holy Spirit working but they had questions. CHURCH be encouraged to ask and expect to receive from God, in His way, and in His timing. The truth is that we who are His …will NOT breakdown, we will BREAKTHROUGH!
His Church, His holy remnant are warned NOT to be deceived. The wheat and the tares look exactly alike. In order for us to make a difference for God’s kingdom, we are called to be set apart, holy, pure and shining His light. America will NOT fail, only IF America turns back to the Lord Jesus Christ. As Christians, we did NOT lose the battle of GOOD vs EVIL, we WON! We will NOT live according to what a DICTATOR says, we will live by the Word of God. The world did NOT conquer us, we claim the VICTORY as our Father’s anointed warriors and we CONQUER the world as His overcomers! We take the authority we were given by God and use it for His glory! We are His church and we do NOT complain, we do NOT weep because we find peace “in Him”. 1 JOHN 3:5 – Jesus was manifested to take away our sins. He came into the world to 1) Destroy the power of sin over us. 2) To pardon the guilty conscious of sin over us. 3) To cleanse us from the pollution of sin over us. Jesus suffered and died that His precious blood would accomplish God’s purpose. AMEN — https://youtu.be/ubfwJ522OdQ
