Vessels And Their Fruit

The vessels of dishonor are known by their fruits and we are called to be fruit inspectors.  We are to minister to those who are in this category but we must be careful not to fellowship with those who meet these criteria for we are at risk of becoming like the company we keep.  Let us not fear those who are vessels of dishonor but let us be a light to shine in the darkness.  Wisdom wrote in Proverbs chapter 6:

16 ​​These six things the LORD hates,

​​Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:

17 ​​A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others],

​​A lying tongue A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths],

​​Hands that shed innocent blood,

18 ​​A heart that devises wicked plans,

​​Feet that are swift in running to evil,

19 ​​A false witness who speaks lies,

​​And one who sows discord among brethren.

If FATHER hates these seven things, we too will come to hate these as well.  We must shine the light on these seven things in Love when Wisdom gives us the opportunity.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Timothy chapter 2:

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.

21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.

22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

We were all vessels of dishonor before receiving salvation through Our Lord Jesus Christ and if we look back at the fruit we produced, we would easily see our actions which would fit into one or more of the categories mentioned in Proverbs chapter 6.  Thankfully, the Blood of Christ was and is sufficient to overcome all of our sins so that we are now able to walk as vessels of honor.  If we are having difficulty in any area of our life, let us come to FATHER’S Throne of Grace and plead the Blood of Christ over our difficulty.  His Blood is greater than any difficulty we face.  We must not let our mind regain control over our heart by leading us astray with lustful or prideful thoughts.  The mind would exalt and overestimate oneself and discount others.  Let us humbly walk as vessels of honor and walk with a grateful heart.

As we become mature Sons and Daughter in Christ, Wisdom will guide us into all Truth concerning these things FATHER hates.  They will be easily identified and we will be given the Word and power to deal with them in the appropriate manner.  Some of us will be called upon to expose these things which will affect the course of history.  We must be of good courage and know that FATHER will provide us with the Words to speak when we are given the opportunity.  Others will be called upon to intercede in prayer for those who are called to the spotlight.  Let us all be prepared to do our part when FATHER moves upon us by HIS SPIRIT.  Vessels of honor will be called upon to act on behalf of the Kingdom and we must be fully prepared.
