Vruchten van geest beletten hetzij inactief of onvruchtbaar te zijn

“Als u deze eigenschappen in overvloed bezit, is uw kennis van onze Heer Jezus Christus niet nutteloos maar vruchtbaar.” (2 Petrus 1:8 NBV)

5 Ja, juist om deze reden moet GIJ, doordat GIJ als weerklank van UW zijde ernstig elke krachtsinspanning bijdraagt,+ bij UW geloof deugd+ voegen, bij [UW] deugd kennis,+ 6 bij [UW] kennis zelfbeheersing, bij [UW] zelfbeheersing+ volharding, bij [UW] volharding godvruchtige toewijding,+ 7 bij [UW] godvruchtige toewijding broederlijke genegenheid, bij [UW] broederlijke genegenheid liefde.+ 8 Want indien deze dingen bij U bestaan en overvloedig zijn, zullen ze U beletten hetzij inactief of onvruchtbaar te zijn*+ met betrekking tot de nauwkeurige kennis van onze Heer Jezus Christus. (2 Petrus 1:5-8)

zullen ze U beletten hetzij inactief of onvruchtbaar te zijn:   Of: „zullen ze u noch inactief noch onvruchtbaar laten zijn.”:

(#Tit 3:14): 14 Maar laten ook de onzen leren voortreffelijke werken te blijven doen ten einde in hun dringende behoeften te voorzien,+ opdat zij niet onvruchtbaar zijn.+

(#Re 2:4): 4 Niettemin heb ik [dit] tegen u, dat gij de liefde die gij eerst had, hebt verlaten.+

(#Col 1:10): 10 opdat GIJ moogt wandelen op een wijze die Jehovah*+ waardig is,+ ten einde [hem] volledig te behagen, terwijl GIJ in ieder goed werk+ vrucht blijft dragen en blijft toenemen in de nauwkeurige+ kennis van God

Het beperkte aantal christenen dat door Jehovah is uitgekozen om met Christus in de hemel te regeren, ondergaat een nieuwe geboorte als door de geest verwekte zonen van God. Ze worden met heilige geest gezalfd om koningen en priesters met Christus te worden (Openbaring van de apostel Johannes 20:6). Petrus zegt dat die nieuwe geboorte ze „een levende hoop” in het vooruitzicht stelt. Die hoop noemt hij „een onverderfelijke en onbesmette en onverwelkelijke erfenis” die in de hemel voor ze is weggelegd. Geen wonder dat de gezalfden zich ’zeer verheugen’ in hun levende hoop! (1 Petrus 1:3-6) Maar de vervulling van die hoop hangt van hun getrouwheid af. Petrus spoorde gezalfden aan ’hun uiterste best te doen om hun roeping en verkiezing voor zichzelf vast te maken’ (2 Petrus 1:10). Ze moeten moeite doen om eigenschappen als geloof, godvruchtige toewijding, broederlijke genegenheid en liefde te ontwikkelen. w12 15/3 3:4, 5

    “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will, to the praise of His glorious grace that He favored us with in the Beloved.”—Ephesians 1:4-6

    Why did Yahweh choose Mary to be the mother of Yeshua? What was so special about her? Why did Yahweh choose Abraham… Moses… David… Peter… Paul…etc.? What was so special about them? Why did Yahweh choose me? What’s so special about me? And here’s the answer…because He could. He is the Sovereign Ruler of the universe. Not because any of us are more special than anyone else (Romans 3:23), but because He shows mercy to whom He will show mercy and He will have compassion on whom He will have compassion (Exodus 33:19; Romans 9:15).

    There is a certain level of personal responsibility required of us as Christians. We are accountable for our knowledge of who He is and what He expects of us. So, as you question (silently or aloud) the reason that you are “stuck” in this place, ask yourself:

    • How do you treat God’s people (particularly those who can do nothing for you)?
    • Do you put neighbors before yourself?
    • Do you speak like a man or woman of God?
    • Do you speak in truth at all times?
    • Do you uplift or belittle those who think or behave differently?
  • Fruit of the Holy Spirit (fropuff7.wordpress.com)
    The fruit of the Spirit are issues of the heart. We read the Word with our mind, build it into character in the heart, out of the heart come the attitudes, veiwpoints, behavior, and ministries of life. Producing and living in the atmosphere of the Sprit is a choice we are continually making every moment. If we are sincere in seeking God then we will produce fruit. That is the evidence of our Christian relationship with God. Everyone who does not produce fruit will be cut off and cast into the fire. Even Christians. Though they profess Christ as king, but if they do not produce fruit they are not true Christians. True Christians have the Holy Spirit within them. Those who have the Holy Spirit within them will produce fruit.
  • Be Fruitful (calebsermons.com)
    Life before God can be compared to a fruit tree. We as people are the trees, and the fruits that are in our trees are the things we did in life.

    No one plants a fruit tree for good looks, there are other trees that suit that purpose. We plant fruit trees to bear fruit. We expect something from it, a return of some sort. In like manner, Christians aren’t here just to look good, we’re here to bear fruit. And the fruits that we’re to bear aren’t apples and oranges, they’re the things that we do that please God.
  • Assurance of Salvation (josephfranks.wordpress.com)

    How would we know if we were chosen?  How would we know if we were internally regenerated, transformed or born-again?  How would we know if the Judge has declared us “Not Guilty!” because of the sacrificial and substitutional work of Jesus Christ?  How would we know if the Holy Spirit dwelt within?  How would we know if Jesus were praying for us from the throne above?  How would we know if our heavenly garment was being pressed and our glorious mansion in construction?
  • Stairway to Heaven (xulonthoughts.wordpress.com)
    There really is a stairway to heaven in a spiritual sense – and we can spend our lives as believers climbing up the wrong flight if we’re not careful (lead verse).  We are now residents of God‘s household on earth.  It is a building fitly framed together into a holy temple – with a single staircase inside leading up to heaven (Ephesians 2:19-21).
    +
    If all the spiritual steps above are followed in order through abiding in God – as He abides in us (John 15:1-5) – fruits of the Spirit are bound to be produced and become abundant (Galatians 5:22-23).Our Father assures us we will not become barren or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ if we climb up the right flight of stairs.  God will make really large steps for us to land on – so our feet won’t slip (Psalm 18:36).  If we climb the stairway to heaven’s door the right way, we shall never fall – and we shall be saved (2 Peter 1:10-11, John 10:9).

  • The Body (holdingforthhisword.wordpress.com)
    there is rank rebellion in our midst today, both conscious and unconscious, that turns the hand of blessing into the hand of dutiful discipline and purifying judgment. God’s call to His children today is to turn from sin and heresy.  We are warned throughout the New Testament that compromise by individual believers ushers in judgment upon the body because of its corrupting influence.
  • The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world (prepareforthelamb.wordpress.com)
    • Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. James 1:15
    •  These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin, and sin when it is finished, bringeth forth death. James 1;13-15
