The Supernatural Fruit Of The Holy Spirit Transcript

  Friends, I’m so glad that you tuned into the broadcast. We have a great teaching. We’re concluding today the Supernatural Fruit of the Spirit. And Smith Wigglesworth asked a great question, or he was asked actually a great question, and that is, how does great faith come. We’re going to answer that in this broadcast, so stay tuned and I believe that you will be blessed. Friends, it’s so good to have you with us and Aaron, I just love this teaching that you taught on the fruit of the Holy Spirit, Supernatural Fruit of the Holy Spirit here at the church and today’s our last day to be talking about that so I’m gonna let you jump into it.


  Awesome, well we find the fruit of the Holy Spirit in Galatians 5:22 and 23. So I’m gonna read the series, it says, but the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control against such there is no law. We’ve gone actually through all nine over the past two weeks and today we’re just kinda summing up some things, but one thing we mentioned is that a lot of these fruit, they all go together. It’s not fruits of the spirit, but they all flow together and I really believe that a lot of them flow from love. And you just need to keep going back to the love of God and that’ll help you just in your own relationship with God, your relationship with other people, and your relationship with yourself. And I love first Corinthians 13, just how love is defined here and I’m actually gonna read from the passion translation ’cause you can really see how a lot of what we’ve been sharing and teaching on is just really summed up in this passage of scripture. This is first Corinthians 13 verses four through seven in the passion translation. But it says, love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic and shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat for it never gives up. Love never stops loving. I think just in every phrase there, you can just see just the past two weeks of our teaching is just really found in that. And the passion translation, I just think that certain passages is really impactful, but love is large and incredibly patient.


  Amen, and all the nine fruit of the spirit, flow forth from love, one thing I wanted to address, Aaron, is this, that you may think, well, I’m not a patient person. And listen, if anybody could say that, Pastor Lawson could say that, but you know what? I have the patience of God in me. And if you’re born again, you have the patience of God in you, you have the love of God in you. You have all nine of the fruit of the Holy Spirit in you in Christ, because you have the exact same spirit as a believer in Jesus, as one who has received Jesus as the Lord and Savior, you have the exact same spirit in you that raised up Christ from the dead according to Romans chapter eight, verse nine and if you read on down through verse 11, and so really you don’t have an excuse. And if you’re not manifesting these fruit of the spirit, then you have a maturity problem. And since we’re talking about love, and I love the past translation of that, I also really like the amplified, the old amplified translation of it, really brings it out. And you can check yourself in the love realm, but all of the other eight flow forth from the fruit of love. It doesn’t say that God is any of those, but it does say that God is love. The Bible says that God is love, God is life, God is light and God is consuming fires. It’s actually talking about in that context being consumed with the fire of his love and understanding grace in Hebrews chapter 12. But when it says that God is love, all of these fruit flow forth from the nature of God that is in us, in Christ. And Colossians chapter three, verse 14 actually says, put on charity or the God kind of love. That King James many times defines love, the God kind of love as charity because it’s giving, it’s not self-seeking, it’s not looking for its own. So charity is the bond of perfectness or the bond of maturity. And we can certainly tell how mature a person is in their Christian walk by how they manifest the fruit of the spirit. And Jesus said, you will know them by their fruit. So there’s no excuse really, if we’re gonna grow up in Christ, we’re gonna begin to grow and manifest these fruit manifestations of the Holy Spirit.


  It says love is large and incredibly patient. You talked about patience and how you’re joking that I’m not really always patient, but I have the patience of God in me. God is incredibly patient, patience relates to time, and you just think about how patient God is towards people, towards humanity. He’s incredibly patient because he invented time. Last night, I was having this conversation with my son at the dinner table. We got into kind of a deep conversation, but he asked how long was it before God created the heavens and the earth? And I said, well, that’s kind of a flawed question because God always existed. So he created time. And so he was there before it wasn’t like he waited 10 years and then said, let there be light. He always existed. So he’s greater than time because he made time. I said Fisher likes legos, said you’re greater than your creations, your Lego creations because you made them. God’s greater than time. He’s greater than space, he’s greater than matter. We talked about in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. So we have a God that created time. In the beginning, he created the heavens, he created space. We talked about outer space, just how immense space is. God created space, and he also created matter, atoms and molecules. And we’re talking about how God made these things and brought them together when there was nothing, there was void, and he brought matter together and he spoke it into existence. And then we’re talking about energy and what types of energies. He’s a very smart child so he’s only nine, but he is asking like, what kind of energy is there? There’s solar energy and sonic energy and kinetic energy, and you can convert one form of energy to another. And I said, God spoke and that there was energy, there was power in his words. And that made kinetic energy and it made solar energy, light happened. And I said, even in matter, like they’ve been able to split atoms apart and find that there’s sound waves, corks within matter. And I said we just got really deep and my wife Heather doesn’t care about those kind of conversations so much, but Fisher and I were going really deep on how God, he’s always there and he is love.


  So we’re talking about God being patient. And the scripture actually says this in Hebrews about God, you were talking about how patient God is, but James chapter five, verse seven and eight says, be patient therefore brethren to the coming of the Lord, behold the husbandman. That’s talking about like a farmer, right? God is the one who’s taking care of the earth. He’s the one waits for the precious fruit of the earth. Just like a farmer knows when he plants a seed, there’s time before he gets a harvest. And he has long patience for it until he received the early and the latter reign. So the early reign was like when the Holy Spirit was poured out and the church was born. So we’re talking about something about 2000 years ago and the latter reign, I believe we’re living in right now. But he says, be patient. If you’re gonna, like for instance, I grew up farming and we grew wheat, winter wheat in eastern Colorado. And if you grow winter wheat in eastern Colorado, you sow it in September, you reap it in July. But if you’re gonna get a great harvest, you need two times, it needs to really get moisture. Number one is you need moisture in September… The beginning of October to bring that seed up. But then you also need moisture and we actually, if we’re farming dry land, we go out in eastern Colorado, it’s a very dry climate so we farm all summer like five times and we do crop rotation every other year. But all we’re trying to do in farming is keep the weeds down because the weeds will rob the soil of moisture. So when we go and plant that seed in September that it has moisture to spring up. But then in April, if we get a good rain in April, it looks like little grass when it comes up, but then it will grow up a little bit, but if you get good moisture in April, it will shoot up, we call it coming in the boot and you can actually split the wheat across before you do that and you can look down in there and in that little grass looking thing, there’s a little head and it’s tiny, but if it doesn’t get moisture, then you won’t get a harvest. So you need two main times of moisture to get a harvest. You need moisture that comes to bring the seed up, but you also need moisture that comes to cause the fruit to come. And so we’re talking about a fruit that comes from God. If we’re gonna have this fruit, we need the moisture of the Holy Spirit to bring the seed up. The word is the seed that’s planted. We’re born again by the incorruptible seed of the word, but we also need the moisture that brings that fruit out. And those can be in God’s timing, like with the harvest of the earth, we’re talking about a 2000 year time period. But those things, it takes time to mature and see the fruit come in your life. And so actually when we would irrigate, we would grow 100 bushel wheat almost every year where we had irrigated land ’cause we would irrigate that seed up in September after we planted or the beginning of October, and then about April, we would pour the water to when it was down in the boot and it just first covered the ground and then it grew up in the spring a little bit, but it’s down there in the boot, but when you pour that water in it, then it just shoots up and it might get three foot tall or 30 inches tall and those heads just fill out, but you gotta have two periods of moisture and they’re at different times to bring that harvest. And in our life, it’s not just being born again, you have the spirit of Christ in you, but you’ve gotta have a continual relationship with the Holy Spirit, right? So that seed is able to produce a harvest.


  I was thinking about a question that someone asked Smith Wigglesworth one time. Someone asked Smith Wigglesworth, how does great faith come? And I think they were talking about the fruit of faith, which we talked about the other day, the fruit of faith or the fruit of faithfulness. How does great faith come? And he said, first the blade, then the ear, then the full corn in the ear.


  He used the scripture, it’s Mark four, I’m looking it up. I believe it’s verse 29. Yeah, well, Mark four, verse 28, the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself. So the earth, everything that’s above the earth came out of the earth. Like we’re sitting in a building, we see wood, we see sheet rock, we see concrete, we see metal. All of those things ultimately came from byproducts of the earth. But our heart is like the earth, in the parable, the seed and the sower in Mark chapter four. So everything that’s above the earth came outta the earth. What comes out of your life came from your heart. So these things are in your heart, but he said, Smith Wigglesworth said this is how the earth brings forth fruit. Great faith comes for the earth, brings forth fruit of herself. First the blade, then the ear, then the full corn, same thing, right? You had the blade. If you’re growing corn, it comes up as a little blade, then it grows up and you get a ear, but before that fruit comes in the ear, then you get the full corn in the ear. So it’s a process. And bringing forth God’s will, living out God’s plan for our life is not something that’s immediate. You’re born again immediately. And I believe if you’re born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit, you have all of the good things of God in your spirit, but it takes a lifetime to walk ’em out. And in Romans chapter 12, Paul kind of said it this way, he says, I beseech you brethren, by the mercies of God, you present your body as a living sacrifice only acceptable to God, which is your reasonable, this isn’t unreasonable, this is reasonable service as a believer. But verse two says this, do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed. If you’re gonna see that transformation by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and the perfect will of God. So the will of God is not automatic, and that’s what too many people think. They think the will of God is automatic, but the will of God is not… Andrew Wommack was just here recently teaching at our church and he talked about how the will of God doesn’t always come to pass because they’re variables. One of the variables is our heart condition. Another variable can be the world which we live in. The people that we surround ourself, whether we’ve renewed our mind in the word, another variable can be the devil, the world, the flesh and the devil try to fight the fruit of the spirit or the plan of God from coming to place in our life. So it’s not automatic. So if you want these things to come to pass, you gotta renew your mind in the word and that fruit takes a period of time for it to come to pass, but great things come when you keep living by faith. We’re gonna be right back after a short break, so stay tuned. You don’t wanna miss the last half of this broadcast. Friends, I certainly hope that you’ve been enjoying watching this broadcast. My son Aaron taught this series on the Supernatural Fruit of the Holy Spirit here in Church Live and it is fantastic teaching. In fact, I had one of my staff say that’s one of the best teaching that he’s ever done. So you can get these live teachings from the church by accessing our website free at If you’re really operating in faith, two things are gonna be happening. Number one, you’re gonna get joyful and number two, you’re gonna get thankful and you’re gonna start seeing what you have instead of what you don’t have. You’re gonna quit complaining, you’re gonna quit whining, you’re gonna quit acting like a victim. As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk and him rooted, built up, established in the faith as you’ve been taught, abounding there in with Thanksgiving. Friends, I’m so glad you stayed with us, and Aaron’s gonna continue to teach. We’re talking about the supernatural fruit of the Holy Spirit and how that’s manifested in our lives.


  Yeah, and just before the break, I brought up how someone asked Smith Wigglesworth, who is a great minister, great person of faith, they asked him, how does great faith come? And they were kind of talking about the fruit of faith, how do you develop this fruit of faith? And really it’s all about trusting in God. Smith Wigglesworth is someone who ministered in faith and his focus was really on God and listening very closely to God and not being so concerned about what other people may think. But there’s stories of him people coming for prayer and him punching them right in the stomach where they had tumor and people aghast, but he was so in tune with God that he didn’t care about what people thought.


  Actually, I’m gonna tell the story about that because actually this was in California and they brought a woman who was dying of cancer and her belly was completely swelled up like she had a baby. And so she came up for prayer and they actually brought her in like on a stretcher, like a cot. And so he said, stand her up. And when he prayed for her, he hit her in the belly and she fell and he said, stand her up again. And he hit her in the belly again hard and she fell again to this cot and he said, stand her up again. And somebody said, stop it, you beast. And he said, you mind your business, I know my business and he hit her again. And when he hit her the third time, that whole tumor fell out of her body, and she was completely healed by the power of God. And see, but most people, if somebody said, stop it, they would quit right there. They would quit because they’re so tuned in to what other people think rather than what God thinks.


  But Smith Wigglesworth, Lester Sumrall went to visit him, had a newspaper under his arm, went to his house, and Smith Wigglesworth said, you could come in, but that newspaper stays out. I don’t allow anything but the good news in my house. And man, he just basically laid down the law and said, this is how it is. And one time, one of the first times Dr. Sumrall went to visit Smith, and this was in England, Dr. Sumrall was pretty young and when he went there, he got to the door and said, how you doing today, Smith and Smith Wigglesworth said, I don’t ask myself how I feel, I tell myself how I feel. And he said, I get up every day and I dance 10 minutes before the Lord and praise God. You can’t just be this emotional wamby-pamby person and think you’re gonna manifest a lot of fruit of the Holy Spirit or a lot of miracles.


  Yeah, and I wanna read the whole passage of scripture that we referenced. The great faith comes by first the blade, then the ear, then the full corn in the ears. So this is Mark four, we’ll start in verse 26. It said, Jesus said, the kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground and should sleep by night and rise by day and the seed should sprout and grow. He himself does not know how. One thing I know about when you’re born again and you’re just really walking with the Lord, you’re just in relationship with him, these fruit, these nine fruit, they’re gonna manifest. You might not even know how, you might realize, wow, I’m loving more than I ever loved before. I’m more joyful. You might not even be aware of it happening, but sometimes when you go back and see someone that you knew maybe years ago, they’re gonna say, wow, I didn’t realize you were such a patient person. I didn’t realize and what’s happened to you? You’re such a kind person, used to be kind of mean, but now you’re kind.


  I’ve had people, Aaron, actually say things about me like that. And like even people who were my mentors, who I really love and respect would make jokes about me being conservative, so on and so forth and I’m still very focused on people–


  You’ve grown in the fruit of faith.


  But I’ve grown in that area where people that used to joke about it now actually compliment our generosity now actually. They see the fruit because I knew that in my mind, I’d already changed in my heart. On the inside, I’d had a great change of mentality. They just hadn’t seen it yet. And I knew one day, and I’ve actually had people consider me like I was at a Christmas party at the Bible school years and years ago and this person said there was some question they were doing a little contest and they said, it’s like you Pastor Lawson, and they were comparing me to gold because my life represents wealth because it changed so much. The fruit of my life changed so much because those things that were in me have been developed. And you have a change in your mentality before you see a change in reality.


  So again, back to Mark 4:26, the kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, should sleep by night and rise by day and the seed should sprout and grow. He himself does not know how. So I think sometimes when you’re just in a close relationship with God, you just realize that this is your new nature in Christ. These things are there. I didn’t realize that I had this patience. I didn’t realize that I had this joy. I didn’t realize that I had this desire to be good and to give good things to people. For the earth yields crops by itself. First the blade, then the head. After that, the full grain in the head. So it says the spirit is gonna yield crops by itself. The spirit is fruitful. The spirit of God is fruitful. When you have the spirit of Jesus on the inside of you, it’s gonna want to come out of you and bear fruit, produce fruit, and just manifest this fruit towards other people, and the way it manifests is through these nine things, through love. Like Jesus said, how they’re gonna know you’re my disciples is by the love that you have for one another.


  Love is the mark of maturity. Love is the mind of maturity, Colossians 3:14.


  Yeah, I think one way to know that the spirit is present is that there’s joy and like people just be able to see the joy in your life. There’s something different about them. They don’t have to just get trash to… Like they can just have joy because it’s there inside of them.


  Aaron, this is something that happened. We lived on a farm. We didn’t have a lot of close neighbors, but after we got in a spirit-filled ministry for a few years, I mean, two or three years, people began to ask at my high school, they ask, where do you go to church? And our neighbors began to ask, where do you go to church? And our neighbors, after years of growing up in a traditional church, kinda like the one I grew up in, ended up coming to our church and being part of it because they saw that our lives changed so much and–


  They saw the fruit.


  The fruit of it and my life. I mean, it’s a continual process. When you’re growing in your relationship with God and you’re growing as you renew your mind. Listen, I’ve had so much change in the last 45 years since I’ve been baptized in the Holy Spirit. It is unreal, it is unreal the change I’ve had in the last 22 years. I’m sure you’ve noticed a lot of change.


  And then in the world around us, there is corruption, there is things that are fading away. There is stuff that’s just junk, but you just need to stay planted in Jesus Christ, stay planted in the word and the roots within you is gonna bring forth this fruit. And no matter what’s going on around you and the world around you, you can keep bearing fruit, you can keep being connected to that kingdom of God.


  Amen, and you know what, that’s what brings pleasure to God. Jesus said in John 15:8, here and as my father glorified that you bear much fruit, so shall you be my disciples. And so it’s fruitfulness and not failure that glorifies God. And God wants us to be fruitful and multiply, praise God just like in the beginning.
