John 15:1-27 Every Branch in Me That Beareth Not Fruit He Taketh Away

John 15:1-27

1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away:
and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it
may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken
unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can
ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in
me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for
without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch,
and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the
fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall
ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;
so shall ye be my disciples.
[Matthew 13:24-30, 38-43 The kingdom of heaven
is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his
field: But…his enemy came and sowed tares[false
brethren/falseteachings]among the wheat”
“Wilt thou
then that we should go and gather them up?”
“But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root
up also the wheat with them.” “Let both grow together
until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will
say to the reapers,
Gather ye together first the tares,
and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the
wheat into my barn.”
“The field is the world; the good
seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are
the children of the wicked one.”-Compare John 8:44; Mark
16:15; Gen 3:15
“The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are
the angels.” “As therefore the tares are gathered and
burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this
“The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and
they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that
offend, and them which do iniquity;”
“And shall cast them
into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and
gnashing of teeth.”-Cp. Rev 18:15-24; 17:15; Lk 13:24-28;
21:23-26; Hos 13:13-16; Mic 4:9-12; Jer 4:31; Jhn 5:43

“Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the
kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him

9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you:
continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love;
even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide
in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might
remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I
have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down
his life for his friends.
14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant
knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you
friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I
have made known unto you.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and
ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and
that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask
of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before
it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:
but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you
out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is
not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they
will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they
will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my
name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had
sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other
man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen
and hated both me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be
fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me
without a cause.
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto
you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been
with me from the beginning.
