What did Jesus mean when He said, “I am the True Vine” (John 15:1)?

Answer: “I am the True Vine” (John 15:1) is the last of seven “I am” declarations of Jesus recorded only in John’s Gospel. These “I am” proclamations point to His unique divine identity and purpose. Jesus said, “I am the True Vine” to closest friends gathered around Him. It was only a short time before Judas would betray Him; in fact, Judas had already left to do his infamous deed (John 13:30). Jesus was preparing the eleven men left for His pending crucifixion, His resurrection, and His subsequent departure for heaven. He had just told them that He would be leaving them (John 14:2). Knowing how disturbed they would feel, He gave them this lovely metaphor of the True Vine as one of His encouragements.

Jesus wanted His friends, not only those eleven, but those of all time, to know that He was not going to desert them, even though they would no longer enjoy His physical presence. His living energy—His spiritual reality—would continue to nourish and sustain them just as the roots and trunk of a grape vine produce the energy that nourishes and sustains its branches while they develop their fruit. Jesus wanted us to know that, even though we cannot see Him, we are as closely connected to Him as the branches of a vine are connected to its stem. Our desire to know and love Him and the energy to serve Him will keep flowing into and through us as long as we “abide” in Him.

Jesus went on to remove any misunderstanding about what He meant (John 15:4). He said that no branch can even live, let alone produce leaves and fruit, by itself. Cut off from the trunk, a branch is dead. Just as a vine’s branches rely on being connected to the trunk from which they receive their energy to bear fruit, Jesus’ disciples depend on being connected to Him for their spiritual life and the ability to serve Him effectively. The fruit we produce is that of the Holy Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22–23). Our source of life and spiritual fruit is not in ourselves; it is outside us, in Christ Jesus. We can live, live rightly, and serve Him effectively only if we are rightly connected to Him in a faith/love relationship.

Then Jesus underscored His point even more strongly by saying, “Apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). This illustration of the vine and branches is no thoughtless generality or careless simile. It is absolute, stark reality. No believer can achieve anything of spiritual value independently of Christ Jesus. He also reminds us that there are some who are “in” Him who bear no fruit. But these are not, as some would suppose, true branches that just happen to be fruitless. All true branches bear fruit. Just as we know a healthy, living tree by the good fruit it produces, so do we recognize fruitless branches as having no connection to the True Vine. This is why Jesus tells us, “By their fruit you will know them” (Matthew 7:16–20). Those who do not produce good fruit are cut away and burned. The reference here is to apostates, those who profess to know Christ but whose relationship to Him is insincere. He neither called them nor elected them nor saved them nor sustains them. Eventually, the fruitless branches are identified as not belonging to the Vine and are removed for the sake of truth and the benefit of the other branches.

So, we depend on Jesus for everything, starting with our very life—“For in Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28)—and including our reconciliation with God through Him (Romans 5:10). No one can serve God effectively until he is connected with Jesus Christ by faith. Jesus is our only connection with the God who gave life and who produces in us a fruitful life of righteousness and service.

I am the way the truth and the life, no man can know me unless my Father draws him.
It is by the Spirit of God that the truth, the saving grace of our Lord can be revealed and implanted in your heart and mind. It is not by mans wisdom, limited understand but by the grace and power of God where men can be saved.
God Bless

God is not limited in the ways He communicates with His people. Job 33:14-18 says that God speaks and man does not perceive it, in a dream or a night vision, He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction.

Dreams and visions are as important as words of prophecy and words of knowledge given to us for direction, warning, or destiny.
When I have God dreams, I remember them in detail and God gives me the interpretation. He impressed on me long ago to write the dream and interpretation in a log. Some dreams were from the past, for the present, or for things to come.

The first time I was given a God dream, I was not yet a believer. Certainly, the dream had my attention and led to my salvation.
We all dream naturally and even supernaturally. God will bring interpretation in His timing. Pray for interpretation, pray for recall upon waking. Much like a prophetic word, the enemy wants to remove the seed, distort the understanding, and destroy the message.

Thank you Lord for Your release and impartation of the ability to hear and see the things in the Spirit that You want to share with Your children. Our desire is to communicate with our Heavenly Father. We pray for spiritual discernment that the enemy cannot deceive us, that as Your sheep we know Your voice.
We open our spirits to the Holy Spirit who will teach us and guide us into all truths.

You are all the sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness (I Thess 5:5). The light of God fills us by the Holy Spirit. Light and darkness cannot occupy the same space. Light ALWAYS overcomes darkness. Love cannot abide in hate, truth cannot abide in deception, prophetic cannot dwell with demonic, neither can faith abide in fear.
We do not light a lamp and hide it under a bushel, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are i…n the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matt 5:15-16)

Don’t accept the lies and deceptions of the devil. He can never put out the light of God in our lives; our destiny to be fulfilled, our dreams to be come a reality, our lives to be formed into the image of Christ. We cover our light with a bushel when we believe and accept the lies of the devil. Give the enemy no place. Separate from those who seek to destroy the life and the light of God within you; they are unGodly relationships.
Jesus said “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but have the light of life”.

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.There is a place in good where you walk with Him and His hand comes upon you to shield you and protect you from all harm… Nothing by any means shall harm for the Lord thy God is with you.

He infuses his life and spirit within you, he joins himself to be one with you His new friend He Is the Lord that healths me.. He sends his Word, His covenant promise and heals me and you by the power of His Word and grace. He wraps me in His Glory and His Love, there is a life of joy in the presence of the Lord that the world has never experienced. It comes by giving your all to the Lord, and see the joy in giving. He shares his life his joy with those that will join themselves with God. God be for us who can stand before us.  As you believe and seek the Lord you shall find…

Put on the Lord Jesus Christ and his righteousness, that we may be ensued by power and grace that only He can supply.

Obama’s school transgender directive – Bad News

11 states sue over Obama’s school transgender directive

We need to protect our families from non-Christian values being forced upon our children, that will open risk of sexual harassment and denying our expression of protecting our religious rights and freedom of education in a protected environment that parents will approve. He us fight this religious injustice. Join us as we stand in faith and demand that the president and government official take heed to our voice the voice of the American people. We must stand up for truth and justice that protects the innocence of our children and family.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas and 10 other states are suing the Obama administration over its directive to U.S. public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.

The lawsuit announced Wednesday includes Oklahoma, Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Maine, Arizona, Louisiana, Utah and Georgia. It asks a North Texas federal court to declare the directive unlawful in what ranks among the most coordinated and visible legal challenges by states over the socially divisive issue of bathroom rights for transgender persons.

The Obama administration has “conspired to turn workplace and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights,” the lawsuit reads.

Many of the conservative states involved had previously vowed defiance, calling the guidance a threat to safety while being accused of discrimination by supporters of transgender rights. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has previously said “there is no room in our schools for discrimination.”

The White House had no comment on the lawsuit. The Justice Department said it would review the complaint and did not comment further.

Texas’ lieutenant governor has previously said the state is willing to forfeit $10 billion in federal education dollars rather than comply. The directive from the U.S. Justice and Education Departments represents an escalation in the fast-moving dispute over what is becoming the civil rights issue of the day.

Pressed about whether he knew of any instances in which a child’s safety had been threatened because of transgender bathroom rights, Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said “there’s not a lot of research” during a news conference about the lawsuit. He said he his office has heard from concerned parents, but didn’t say how many, and said he did not meet with any parents of transgender students before drafting the lawsuit.

The states claim that the directive demands “seismic changes” in schools across the U.S. and forces them to let students choose a bathroom “that match their chosen ‘gender identity’ on any given day.”

Two school districts joined the states in the lawsuit: one is the tiny Harrold school district in North Texas, which has roughly 100 students and passed a policy this week requiring students to use the bathroom based on the gender on their birth certificate. Superintendent David Thweatt said his schools have no transgender students to his knowledge but defended the district taking on the federal government.

“It’s not moot because it was thrusted upon us by the federal government,” Thweatt said, “or we were going to risk losing our federal funding.”

The question of whether federal civil rights law protects transgender people has not been definitively answered by the courts and may ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court. But schools that refuse to comply could be hit with civil rights lawsuits from the government and could face a cutoff of federal aid to education.

The guidance was issued after the Justice Department and North Carolina sued each other overs a state law that requires transgender people to use the public bathroom that corresponds to the sex on their birth certificate. The law applies to schools and many other places.

Supporters say such measures are needed to protect women and children from sexual predators, while the Justice Department and others argue the threat is practically nonexistent and the law discriminatory.

Education officials in Arizona said campuses already had policies to protect students from bullying and discrimination “regardless of their gender identity.” A small Arizona school district also joined in the lawsuit.

“The fact that the federal government has yet again decided that it knows what is best for every one of our local communities is insulting and, quite frankly, intolerable,” Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said.

Helping people to come to know Jesus, Lord God Messiah.

Jesus came in a lowly way riding upon a donkey

Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.” All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: “Tell the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly, and sitting on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ” So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Hosanna in the highest!” (Matthew 21:1-9, emp. added).

Lord wants to bring you to the place where He can place himself, his anointing upon you to He may share his love with the world.  I remember years ago the Lord spoke this scripture to me and said bring him to me, the Lord has need of him, to carry the Word of God to the Nation. To bring a people that dwell in darkness to the Light and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. That a people that are not my people may be called the children of God. That they may experience my love and changing power to release them from darkness and bring them to the life, transformed by the power of God to become Sons of God, walk with me and I will teach thee to walk with me and learn my way to bring a Nation of people out of darkness.

Secret Place of the Most High                                                                                                    October     2015


Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear not evil, for you are beside me.

“Psalm 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

There is a secret place, a circle in which God surrounds you and protects you.  Every outside evil  cannot penetrate, cannot have access to you. You are shielded from harm by the most High God; He is our High Tower and our Refuge and we run to Him.

Psalm 3:3 But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.

There is a refuge in Christ, a secret place in the Almighty that He has prepared for us to dwell in with Him.  He walked with Adam in the cool of the evening, in the secret place. God communicates with man and reveals the mysteries of God to the inner man; Spirit to spirit.

There is a secret place in the very heart of God where He directs you in the center of His will, when we walk by the Spirit, led of God, nothing can touch you or keep you from your desired end.  Even though a storm may arise to divert us, when we realize that Jesus, the Spirit of God is abiding in the boat with us, we know that He will help us reach our purpose in the plan of the Lord.

Out of your inner most belly will flow rivers of Living waters. He will bring times of refreshing from the presence of the Most High God.   He will heal our inner wounds and comfort us and bring us near to Him that we might know Him and the Power of His resurrection.

There is a walk with God where this world has no place in you; where we can walk with God, and His Spirit will walk beside us and guide us with every step we take.  The bible says that He will guide us with His eye.

If we walk in the midst of storms and troubles, we will not be harmed, for the Lord our God is with us and will keep us in all His ways.

Put your trust in the Living God and know that He is with you for He cares for you.  He has a place of safety and a refuge for those that love Him.

Come to know the Lord your God in truth that you have been changed by Him, that you are transformed into the very nature and likeness of Almighty God when we have an intimate relationship with Him.  For He has made us to be joint heirs with Him, Christ now abides in us and shall keep us in all our ways. And no evil shall come near our dwelling place to the one who abides in the most High…

That I Might Know Him

                                                Rev. Peter Kelleher


“That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death; if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.”  Phil 3:10,11

Jesus Saves 282x300 That I Might Know Him

God our Father sent his Son Jesus Christ

There is a realm of intimacy that the Lord wants to reveal to His Church, that the saints of God have inherited through Christ Jesus. Jesus is both God and man. God has come to reveal himself through the man Christ Jesus. He is the visible image, representation of the invisible God.


“No man knoweth God except His Son, and no man can know the Son except the heavenly Father reveal Him to him.”  We need to be introduced, welcomed into the living relationship with His Son in order to know God. It is through our relationship with Christ that we can come into a knowledge of God our Father.  Jesus revealed and made known to His disciples that His heavenly Father is the God of love, not the God of wrath and destruction, but the God full of mercy and forgiveness.  That Jesus came to save the world, not to condemn the world.  That through His life, this world and its people could be saved. Forgiven of their sins and come into the knowledge and relationship that our loving and forgiving Father wants to have with His creation, the children of God.


Our Lord is revealing to the world that through our Father we can be saved, redeemed, spared from the curse of sin; that there is an escape from death, hell and the grave.


God never intended that man should fall from his relationship and right standing with Almighty God.  But in the garden, man separated himself from the life and relationship with His heavenly Father and began to have a relationship with Satan; and was brought into a covenant relationship with sin and death.  He did not understand that this would be a permanent separation from God.  That there was no possible way for himself to bring forgiveness and reconciliation without God.


You see that Satan, the devil was imprisoned and held captive and had no right to relationship with man in this world. But through his cunning craftiness and false wisdom he was able to deceive man into breaking his covenant agreement with God. Saying that you shall not die… if you can partake of the tree of good and evil, you can have your own life without God. Once you eat of this fruit you shall be like God, live as your own God. Isn’t that what the devil is telling people today: “you can live your own life without God.”  But at that time when Adam and Eve took part in sin and rebelled against God. Their eyes were opened, they realized that they were naked and that their covenant relationship with God was broken. They realized that the life they shared with God was dead, they were cut off from the eternal life source of Almighty God.  Little did they know that this new life they bought into with Satan was a covenant with sin and death. Death now reigned in their mortal bodies, they were no longer protected, no longer separated from sin and death. Sin now ruled over them. Now because of sins dominion over their flesh they taste death and eternal separation from God. This was the devils destiny, and now it was theirs.


God would now have to intervene and prepare to make a way of escape for his creation and mankind. To save them from hell and the grave. Hell was created for Satan and his demons, not for mankind.  God created man to live eternally with Him to never have to taste of death.  But to live an eternal life and to walk in a loving relationship God, his heavenly Father.


God our Father now promised to send His only Son Jesus into the world to save man from sin and death. Sin and death have no dominion over Christ His Son. He is supreme, all God and all man.  An eternal being that would never die but had the eternal life of the Father in Him.  He would have to lay down His life, no man could take away His life from him. He would surrender His life, sacrifice His life to save mankind.


Jesus showed that He had power over sin and death, through the life He lived here on earth.  He lived a perfect life free from sin.  He raised Lazarus from the grave, to prove to the world that He was the resurrection and the life. Any man that believed in Him, any one that came into a loving covenant relationship with Jesus would be saved from the curse of sin and death, and would be set free to live a new life with God.


This new knowledge and experience would be birthed in man by his Holy Spirit and this knowledge would cleanse us from our sins by the blood of Jesus and cause us to become a new creation in Christ. We now become alive to God and dead to sin. The promise of the Holy Spirit had been released upon the Church of God after his resurrection.  Jesus promised that He would send the Holy Spirit to be a comfort and guide to us after He rose from the dead.  He cares so much for us that He gave His life that we may be spared from death, hell and the grave. This new covenant relationship, the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has been given to the Church, to all that believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.  They shall be partakers of His resurrection power that will enable us to be saved from the power of sin and give us a new resurrected life to live with Christ.


Just as the grave could not hold Jesus, in that He rose from the dead on the 3rd day, we too will rise to a new life when He calls for us. He said that I go to my Heavenly Father, I am not leaving you but I go to prepare a place for you.


“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:2,3


Jesus goes ahead for us to prepare a place, a new life, He opens up new realms of the Spirit for our new place of habitation. A new existence, a new creation is now brought into being through Christ completed work on the cross. Through His blood sacrifice He purchased, paid the price for our new existence and life with Almighty God.  He goes ahead to prepare all this, that He may return to receive us into the kingdom of God.


Jesus said “I am come that ye may have life and life more abundantly. Not as this world has to offer, but the life that only heaven can offer”.  New resurrection life with and through Jesus Christ, His Spirit will live in us and abide in us if we ask Him into our hearts.  Jesus said I came that none would perish, but have eternal life.  And as many as receive Him, He gave them the power to be saved as sons of God.


“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”  John 1:12


Saved to walk in relationship with our Father God, through Christ new breathed life in us.

We are quickened, made alive in Christ, free from sin and hell.  Sin and death shall no longer have dominion over you.  But if you abide in Me, keep my covenant, keep my commandments, then I will abide in you and you will abide in Me and you shall have eternal life.  We can live the heavenly life that God intends for man. As we join ourselves to the Lord we become one Spirit with Him. His life live in us. I realize that through the new birth, being born again in the Spirit, I find that there is the life, the person of Christ living in me.  If I pray and seek his face, at times He reveals Himself alive in me and I know that I am not alone in this world, but somehow, some way, He now lives in me. And you too can have this new resurrection life of Christ living, abiding in you.
