Summary: Seeking Fruitfulness Through Prayers targeted at spiritual and physical drought in the life of Christians
REVELATION 22:2: "In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations."
EZEKIEL 47:12: "And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine."
MARK 11:12-14: "And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it."
“Every Month, A Fruit!”
God hates barrenness and loves fruitfulness. That is very true, every month ought to bear you a good fruit to nourish your life on earth. There are 12 fruits, one for each month, according to the word of God in the scripture above. Therefore, February must have some heavenly-ordained fruit for your destiny, know that now if you are unaware of that spiritual fact.
Somethings are taken for granted by God and such things are natural occurrence for our lives. When suddenly such things are missing from our lives, God gets angry, not because of those things but because we are blind to see the power He had invested in us to obtain those things. Jesus could have miraculously brought fig from that tree, but was angry because of the strange deceptive behaviour of the tree. It was not the time of fig but this strange tree brought out leaves, giving impression that it has fruit.
That was a strange game, particularly on a very important and sensitive subject of fruitfulness. In the garden of Eden, the first set of blessings by God upon man was BE FRUITFUL!!! Our Lord Jesus did not waste time with semantics or diplomacy, HE CURSED THAT FAKE TREE FROM THE ROOTS!!! I wish somebody out there reading this message would get angry like our Lord Jesus, and they would stand up with boiling anger and curse the root of their problems to WITHER IN JESUS' NAME!!!
Now let us do some spiritual exploration. The journey of every fruit began from the seed. From the seed-stage, it grows into the tree-stage. From the tree-stage, it flourishes into the fruit-stage. Whenever the fruit-stage is due and you are not seeing any result of fruitfulness, then there is a trouble that you must deal with, with holy violence. That means it is time for you to fertilize your life with hot violent prayers and deal with that situation with boiling anger.
There is this similar story in Luke 13:6-9: "He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down."
Is there any any situation in your life which had a sprinkle of testimonies in years past, and after the initial testimony, there was a freeze: has stagnated and refused to grow or move forward? That sprinkle of testimonies was when the situation grew from seed-stage to tree-stage with green leaves, but suddenly refused to bear fruit. This is your month, get ready for violent battle and your victory dance.
Since the journey of every fruit begins with the seed. The seed is the word of God in your mouth boldly declared and turned into effectual fervent prayers, they shall not fall to the ground without accomplishing the things which you send them to arrest. May the heavenly seed in your mouth germinate and bring forth bountiful harvests of fruits for your life this month in Jesus' name. Let me round up this part one of the prayer points for the fruits of February with the following prayer exercise.
