Is God About to Chop you with The Ax?
Matthew 3:10 (KJB) And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
This verse was given to the Jewish people for reminding them of the certainty of the judgment of God against anyone who did not produce fruit. However, this ax-wielding message still rings true for every person alive on this earth today.
God did not provide His mercy and grace and remove sin just because He desires to clean mankind up and give each of us a new life. No, God expects His child will desire to cling to His Vine and desire to receive His eternal nourishment. Otherwise, his or her life will be cut with the swing of His ax.
For those hearts who desire to stand on their own, and to journey about in this world without personal application of the presence and power of God, they can be certain that they will be found without spiritual fruit production and set to be chopped from God’s vine at a time of His choosing.
God has sent each person to this world with a specific will and purpose. For those who seek to live according to God’s purposes, they will be eternally nurtured and nourished by God. However, those hearts who seek their own way and sustenance will be pruned to the ground and cast into the fiery judgment of God.
