“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” -Galatians 5:22-23. NIV
Resisting sin and surrendering to the Holy Spirit produces a Fruit of the Spirit life approved by GOD. The number NINE carries the spiritual weight that we sometimes forget or ignore. When you go deeper, you can see that NINE is very powerful. It represents the fruits of God's Holy Spirit. There are some negative associations with the number NINE in the Bible as well.
However, the message in this post is to highlight the Blessing of the number NINE and the gifts from the Fruit of the Spirit. It is the spiritual fruit that comes from the heart and Spirit of GOD. Those excellent spiritual characteristics that JESUS said people would recognize the Body of CHRIST by. Allow me to define and serve you the Fruit of the Spirit to nourish and fill your spiritual digestive system spiritually.
