Do you want to give up often while following the Lord and don’t understand why things keep happening if your really trying and love the Lord? You may be part of God’s firstfruits…the firstfruits were/are the sacrifice to the Lord….The Lord is showing us below he also has firstfruits connected to his vine
This morning I woke and heard the lord say: “The seeing, is in the firstfruits, he will never lose his way to drink.” Then he gave me this understanding and impression of a vine and how we are connected to him as the branches and there we get plenty of drink or his living water source as his firstfruits. He reminded me of all the visions I had of him pouring me water before. We drink from him as the living water and as our Vine. John 7:37-38 He reminds me when he spoke to me about the vine and the branches John 15:5. He waters us daily so we get sufficient needs met on our walk with him. I remember the series of back to back gardening visions God gave me and how he harvested them finally in the last vision. I saw him taking care of this plant in these series of daily visions, and this is also why I understand he uses the vine and branches as the same example…he takes care of his own fruit/plants/people. Apart from him we can do nothing, he restores us, he delivers us, and he makes all things new. Why will we never loose our way to this drink from him, bc he is faithful to keep us/take care of us. Finally, as a benefit of being the firstfruit, you have been given spiritual eyes through the holy spirit to see more or deeper then other’s in order to help other’s. We are also taught that what he reveals to us in the spirit, will happen at some point without us seeing it first. I have witnessed this so much from things the Lord said/showed to me sometimes years before it happened. So many meanings, but all lead to the same source of living water.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
Every thing we go through are light afflictions while with him, and if it is still this hard for us,…imagine as the scriptures states what it will be like for those without him? Even in our light afflictions bc we chose to do it with him, he delivers us from them all. Remember when the Lord said, do not think it strange when all these things come upon you? The blessing is he provides the needs/resources and/or way out. The Lord is constantly reminding me why, and why we go through so much more. His spirit reminds us to not give up, reminds us he is in control and reminds us who we are, and who we have been called to be…apart from this world. Some of us have been called to be his first fruits to help others see him deeper and we need his reminders to get through, because it is a much harder walk through fire if your now a constant target of the devil too. He teaches us how to conquer him. I’ve heard some of your struggles as well and how you also get no breaks sometimes from suffering/sacrifice. Your spirit feels broken, but you need to remember in those times how to plug into the Lord(Vine) to get delivered and to get a fresh word or insights/guidance from him, to drink from him. It’s not a weekly process, it is a daily process to stay connected and not fall back into the world. This message is amazing from him if you truly understand the deeper meaning that matches his word. Can I just say no matter what I am going through, how much joy it is to wake and hear a fresh word straight from the Lord’s mouth and heart?
1 John 4:17
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
To go with this, the Lord also gave me this word yesterday…”Your body is not your body” and that is another part of the suffering/sacrifice we all give to him. ( 1 Corinthians 6:20, Romans 12:1, and 1 Corinthians 3:16) You can’t just do all the things you desire with your body like the world does, or eat all the things you desire anymore without major consequences. When we come to Christ and operate with him, he owns our bodies as part of the temple of God now. We are now led by the spirit in all things. I could go into so much about this word from him, but I believe the Lord led me to the perfect words already written and I have copied a website below that explains what first fruits strive to do in this life, who they are and why we are chosen to be first fruits. For those going through long-suffering, please try to remember who you are to him and why he chose you to go through a harder walk as sacrificial firstfruit….He reminds me it will get better if we can keep walking with him and trusting, because we all have seasons of change at his appointed time.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
