VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. CHRIST is the Vine

"Yes, I am the vine"

John 15:1 (New King James Version)

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

Isaiah 11:10 (New International Version)

In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious.

Revelation 14:18-19 (New King James Version)

And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."

So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

1. Vine came from the Greek word:"ampelos" meaning vine, a support. CHRIST is the true vine our support, our fruits comes from the roots, which is also our LORD JESUS CHRIST both supports us to bear fruit for the Kingdom of GOD. There is the true Vine and another vine which will be harvested in the winepress of GOD's wrath. We are slaves of the one we choose to be slave of. If CHRIST chose us as His branch then we will not be harvested in the winepress of GOD's wrath but instead be pruned by GOD, the Father to bear more fruit for Him.

B. We are the branches

"you are the branches"

Jeremiah 23:5 (New Century Version)

“The days are coming,“ says the Lord, “when I will raise up a good branch in David’s family. He will be a king who will rule in a wise way; he will do what is fair and right in the land.

Jeremiah 33:15 (New Century Version)

In those days and at that time, I will make a good branch sprout from David’s family. He will do what is fair and right in the land.

2 Corinthians 3:5 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.

Colossians 1:27 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

Galatians 2:20 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

1. CHRIST lives in us, and we live in CHRIST. We live because of Him not us. If we're called the branch and CHRIST was also called The Branch in Jeremiah, it means to say that it's both true, because The Real Branch lives in us, branch. All our accomplishments are done in CHRIST not us. We are all nothing, CHRIST must increase in our lives.

C. He who remains in CHRIST and CHRIST remains in him will bear much fruit

"Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit."

1 John 2:27-28 (New King James Version)

But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
