REVELATION ON THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
He gave me a thing that I wanted to share with you. Last
Oct and Nov my dreams were terrible. Every night there
were one or two or three dreams. They were either
spiritual, wrong spirit, mental, wrong spirit, or
physical wrong spirit. They were financial, emotional,
physical and sexual. We are 3 things, spirit, soul and
I was told I was too old, out of tune, unanointed,
discarded, unwanted, rejected. And I would wake up and
say NO. Then I would have another one. For 2 months I
On the last day of Hahnika in December. They were the
worst. He said I am going to burn your house, I am going
to kill all your family, you haven’t got any protection,
you’re too far out on a limb. Nobody is praying for you.
There just terrible fear and everything else. I would
have to wake up and say NOPE. No way. You’re a liar. NO,
NO, NO. But it would disturb my sleep. That Saturday
morning I was really tired. I got and tried to make it
through the day, but I was just too tired. I figured it
was about 4 o clock that the devil had been up all night
tormenting me, so that he probably was taking a nap so I
went in and jumped in bed and I was going to take me
one. So I no more hit the bed, then I was gone but not
in sleep. I was gone before the throne. And there Viola
and I stood holding hands. And I saw a man and his wife
come up before the throne and Jesus was sitting on it.
I believe that Hanicak is not the birth of Christ, but
the conception of it. And I believe that Christ was made
flesh and dwelt among us at conception.
And these people were going up there before the Lord.
And the first man and wife, they had the most beautiful
basket of navel Sunkist oranges I have ever seen. They
put this basket down and said, “Happy conception day
Lord.” And He said, “Thank you.” Then came the next
couple. They had the most luscious looking peaches you
have ever seen. They were beautiful. They were big and
looked real luscious. They put them at His feet and
said, “Happy conception day Lord.” And one after another
came and I just started weeping. I said, “Viola we don’t
have any fruit to give the Lord.” It’s His conception
day and I don’t have anything to give Him.”
You know you don’t bear fruit with works, you bear it
with relationship. By abiding. You know I think that
sometimes we try to earn brownie points with works, when
we can only have it by relationship or intimacy. And so
I started weeping. And the man that took me and Viola
there said, “Why do you weep Bob?” By the way, He is
faceless. I have never been able to see His face. He is
called the Parakleet, the One that stands beside you.
You may know Him as the Holy Spirit. He said, “Look at
John 14:16 KJV
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
parakletos (par-ak'-lay-tos); an intercessor, consoler:
KJV - advocate, comforter.
I looked down and we had a pink
basket, Viola and I, and we both had a hold of it. We
had the most big luscious grapes I have ever seen. They
were as big as a baseball. I said they are the grapes
that come from Esgo??? They are the promises of God,
they are out of the promised land. I said, “Viola, we’ve
got something to give the Lord!” I went up there and
said, “Happy conception day Lord.” And He said, “Thank
you. Do you know where you got those grapes Bob?” And I
said, “No, no Lord I don’t” He said, Every time you said
no to the devil the last 2 months you were baring
And so He gave me a teaching on this. The only thing
that you can give the Lord is the fruit of the Spirit.
Everything else He gives. The fruit of the Spirit is
Gal 5:22-26 NKJV
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23
gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh
with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the
Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
So the fruit to come up they gave the orange, is Love.
The color of orange means the sweet companionship of the
Lord. Psalm 25:14
Ps 25:14 NLT
Friendship with the LORD is reserved for those who fear
him. With them he shares the secrets of his covenant.
Love really means, You are our greatest pleasure. And it
was Sunkist…. Kiss the Son.
Then I saw the peach, which is joy. Those that have got
joy are really sweet. They are sweet peaches. Joy brings
a sense of well being. I’ve got the joy of the Lord.
Jesus loves me and I don’t have any doubt. I am pleasing
Him in all my ways. For the Lord rejoices over me and
that’s my strength. When you’ve got the joy its because
you know Jesus loves you. Don’t ever lose that.
Apple represented is health. Someone told me that there
is a new study out that those who eat an apple before
every meal will lose weight. But we are the apple in the
Lord’s eye. Peace means freedom from disturbing thoughts
or emotions. Freedom. Dream warriors. Freedom. Having
your emotions and your thoughts under your control,
instead of under their control. That’s peace.
The 4th one is patience. I don’t think that I have
totally got all this down yet. I’m trying. Patience is
the pear tree. Long life, bearing fruit even to 150
years. How are you going to bear fruit for 150 years?
Through your children, and your children’s children.
Whatever you break through, they won’t have to. Whatever
you bring under control in your life is what your
children’s children’s children will be doing a 150 years
from now. That’s long life.
Patience really means enduring life without complaining.
I have always believed it was the sweeky wheel that got
oiled. I have really got a lot of work to do on that
one. Enduring life, that’s patience. I’m not complaining
and getting serpents raising up against me. I don’t want
to put that in my children, children’s children. If you
are like that, so are your children going to be. Boy
this is a biggee.
It was the tomato. It was big like a heart. All kind of
seeds in it. Big hearted. Kindness means very generous.
More than just money, it means time. Very generous in
all the ways.
The 6th one is GOODNESS. It’s the strawberry. Goodness
means excellent virtue. Healing virtue comes out and
heals. Small in your own eyes, but very sweet. Very
humble. The hyssop is known as the humble plant in
scripture. The strawberry is as small as the hyssop. The
body of Christ needs to get a hold of it when goodness
is working in them, its what heals. When the Lord
healed, virtue came out of Him. If you’ve got goodness
in you, virtue can come out of you. For you represent
Him down here. You’re His representative. Excellent and
virtue. It begins to have its work in you, there’s no
telling what you can do when you let that goodness come
out and touch others. For it can sure heal.
It was the grape. Faithfulness just means loyal.
Loyalty. Saying no to your options. I bore fruit by
saying no to all the enemy’s suggestions. All the
options he’s given me to fail on. You bear fruit by
abiding in the Vine. By just abiding, the Vine will bear
the fruit on you. Being loyal. Every time I said no in
those 2 months, Viola and I were producing a grape out
of the promise of God. Be loyal to Him and He will be
loyal to you.
The 8th one was gentleness, the banana. It simply means
being gentle. Being gentle with everybody around you, no
matter what kind of an emotion they are in. The banana
is yellow. One of the throne colors, real close to the
Lord. It’s the banana, it is soft hearted and very
sweet. It’s go a substance in it called Potassium which
really strengthens your heart. When you are gentle, God
will really strengthen your heart for people. He will
give you a strong heart to finish the race.
This was the grapefruit. It is again the grape, being
loyalty and bearing fruit. It was big, both sweet and
sour. Sweet staying focused on the Lord and sour,
putting to death the old man every day. And self control
means having control over one’s emotions. It’s when you
are in charge and staying focused on Him. Having control
over your own emotions.
This is the only thing you can give Him. But when you
can, this character in your nature, you are in the Vine.
You become John 15:15. The divine nature has worked in
you and you have become the friend. You are not longer a
slave, you are a friend. For you and the Vine are
connected. And this friend, He tells everything to. I
learned a long time ago that my relationship with the
Lord is not based on my performance. It’s based on my
abiding, my relationship with Him. My partaking of His
divine nature, which are these 9 fruits. All of us have
a little room to grow in this. But we should strive for
it. For when we bear this, we can come into His Presence
any time we want to and bring Him our gifts. And He will
give those to whoever has a need.
So when the thoughts come and you say no to them. You
say, I am bearing fruit, I am abiding. I may not be
doing the works that many want to do, but I am taking on
the divine nature of Christ. And I am becoming a friend.
