The Fruit Of The Spirit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,  longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, (Galatians 5:22) (For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) (Ephesians 5:9) Being  filled  with the fruits of righteousness,  which  are  by Jesus  Christ,  unto the glory and praise  of  God. (Philippians 1:11) But  if I live in the flesh, this [is] the fruit of  my  labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. (Philippians 1:22)

"Which  is  come  unto  you, as [it is] in  all  the  world;  and bringeth forth fruit, as [it doth] also in you, since the day  ye heard  [of it], and knew the grace of God in  truth: (Colossians 1:6) That  ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing,  being fruitful  in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge  of God; (Colossians 1:10) Now  no  chastening for the present seemeth to  be  joyous,  but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable  fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.  (Hebrews 12:11)

"By  him  therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise  to  God continually,  that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving  thanks  to his name. (Hebrews 13:15)

"But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle,  [and]  easy  to be intreated, full  of  mercy  and  good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of  them  that make peace. (James 3:17,18) Be  patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of  the  Lord. Behold,  the  husbandman waiteth for the precious  fruit  of  the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the  early and latter rain. (James 5:7) And  he  prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the  earth brought forth her fruit. (James 5:18)

In contrast Israel is described as: "These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast  with you,  feeding themselves without fear: clouds [they are]  without water,  carried  about  of winds; trees  whose  fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; (Jude 1:12)

Reassuring Israel that the Abrahamic Covenant is not going to be forgotten, the Book of Revelation reveals: "And  he  shewed me a pure river of water of  life,  clear  as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.  In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of  the river,  [was there] the tree of life, which bare  twelve  [manner of]  fruits, [and] yielded her fruit every month: and the  leaves of the tree [were] for the healing of the nations.

"And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name [shall be] in  their foreheads." (Revelation 22:1-4) The twelve manner of fruits are the twelve tribes of Israel confirmed by the His name on their foreheads which refers to the 144,000 which are sealed when Jesus returns.

"Him  that  overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple  of  my God,  and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him  the name  of my God, and the name of the city of my God,  [which  is] new  Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God:  and
[I will write upon him] my new name. (Revelation 3:12)

"Afterward  he brought me again unto the door of the house;  and, behold,  waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house [stood toward] the east, and  the waters came down from under from the right side  of  the house, at the south [side] of the altar. (Ezekiel 47:1) And  it shall be in that day, [that] living waters shall go  out from  Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half  of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it  be. (Zechariah 14:8)

"That I will give [you] the rain of your land in his due  season, the  first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest  gather  in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. (Deuteronomy 11:14) The  LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust:  from heaven  shall  it come down upon thee, until thou  be  destroyed. (Deuteronomy 28:24) And  they waited for me as for the rain; and they  opened  their mouth wide [as] for the latter rain. (Job 29:23)

"My  doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall  distil  as the  dew,  as  the small rain upon the tender herb,  and  as  the showers upon the grass: (Deuteronomy 32:2)
