Children, our love must be not just words or mere talk, but something active and genuine. First John 3:18

 

Every branch in Me that bears no fruit He cuts away, and every branch that does bear fruit He prunes to make it bear even more. John 15:2

 

Acts 9:26-31, Psalm 22, First John 3:18-24 & John 15:1-8

 

Jesus uses His Disciple John to describe today something I encountered as I was actively praying yesterday in two different locations of South Florida including Fort Lauderdale and Miami. These two instances reflect the pruning we receive when you seek every aspect of bearing fruit for His Father’s glory. In less than two hours, I encountered two separate God-instances that swept me away in the Spirit to accomplish His Will. The first was in Fort Lauderdale where I choose an active prayer point on the corner of Federal Highway and Oakland Park Boulevard.

 

Last year I wrote about my Prayer Point ministry that I created where I took a 15-foot flagpole with an American flag and a POW flag and attached a three-foot-by-three-foot sign that reads “Prayer Point- Stop and Pray for the USA.” Once a week on Saturday morning you’ll normally see me with the sign in front of the abortion mill on 117th Ave and Sunset praying with an active rosary vigil group for the babies dying that has been going there now for almost seven years. Every so often, I use the sign too at different locations in the city to stop and pray to passer bys sometimes encountering extraordinary prayer warriors for God’s Truth.

 

Yesterday her name was Melanie and I would describe her as a woman in her 70’s short with a grey ponytail simple white skirt and shirt donning a light blue scarf wrapped around her head. At first, she just nodded as I said “God Bless You” stopping near me waiting to cross a very busy intersection seemingly focused on her route. I will often kneel when praying in a Teebowing sort of way and I kneeled after she walked by and refocused on my prayers when within one minute she startled me with a tap of her hand on my shoulder asking, “Would you like to pray with you?” Looking up I witnessed a glow around her head as she smiled at me with these twinkling blue eyes as I replied, “I’d be honored to pray with you.” Standing up and gripping my flagpole in my right arm, I reached out and held hands with her praying aloud.

 

When I finished, she looked at me and said, “If you were to die right now, do you believe you would go to heaven when God asks why you deserve to be let in?” I replied, “I am a sinner not worthy to enter Your Kingdom LORD and only by the Blood of Your Son has my sins been wiped away. By my belief in His Sacrificial Redemption I am offered His Promise of Eternal Life in Heaven.” She smiled and said, “God Bless you” shaking my hand turning to walk the crosswalk at perfect timing to catch the light. When I looked up a few seconds later smiling to see where she was going, she was gone heading South down US 1 out-of-sight as if she had vanished in thin air. I said aloud “Thank You Jesus” rejoicing aloud in a song in my heart.

 

The second was a homeless man I met at Tropical Park on Bird Road. I saw him on a corner where I was unable to stop because of an off ramp at 826 green light. I yelled to him to come find me a Tropical Park because I had some shoes and clothes for him. About 15 minutes later, he walked by my Prayer Point and I asked him if he needed any shoes or clothes. His tanned dirty face was smiling a mile wide was shaking his head yes and we walked over to my “Trunk of Comfort.” After giving him some new perfect fitting shoes and clothes, I prayed with him by holding his shoulders making the Sign of the Cross on his forehead when I finished saying may God Bless you looking into eyes of tears rolling down his cheeks.

 

Finally, I then offered him my open arms in a hug when we were finished praying and he responded with the tightest love-held hug I feel every time my wife and I hug- it was Christ-felt and pure. The only difference is my wife has a smell of Heaven not a stench of living in hell on the streets. He walked away overjoyed as I continued my Prayer Point location in thankful prayer for the Child of God I had just prayed with. Jesus will use us as His Disciples just as He taught and shared His Truth with Saint John. Find out how His Truth can be shared in an active and genuine way as the Father prunes your branches to create fruit that is more delicious. Amen.

 

Dear Father, we pray to love in not mere talk but something active and genuine for Your glory LORD. We pray for my children. We pray You never relieve the burning sensation in the center of our hearts to live only for You. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

                                      

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

Pruning the branches of deed to create more seeds of use- John 15:1-8

 

From the mouth of Jesus

Lessons of Truth came forth

The True Vine from the Father

An example of the inspired True North

 

God shears away the branches

Those not producing fruit

Pruning the branches of deed

To create more seeds of use

 

His Disciples were pruned

Christ’s Word of guts

He spoke to remain in Him

As He remains in all of us

 

Without His Word

We are nothing to be

In His Word

Much fruit to seed

 

All branches pruned

For lack of use

Gathered and burnt

In a fire of truce

 

The ceasing of your preaching

Because My Words are not in you

If you glorify My Father

My Words live an Eternal youth

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
