Blessed are the peacemakers

Matthew 7:15-20 NASB

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?  So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  So then, you will know them by their fruits.

Proverbs 18:20-21 NASB

With the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Hebrews 13:15 NASB

Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.

1 John 4:1 NASB

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

John 6:63-64 NASB

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.  But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was that would betray Him.

We test them by the words they speak.

James 3:18 NASB

And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Ephesians 2:13-16 NASB

But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.

Do their Words unite you to God? Remember God cannot be One with sin, therefore do their words free you from sin, or do they keep you believing yiu can never be free from sin? Understand that the flesh cannot please God, this is why we must be born of God and know that Jesus destroyed the flesh at the cross. We HAVE been crucified WITH Christ, it is NOW He who lives in us. Know who you truly are.

Matthew 5:9 NASB

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
