God showed me a grape arbor, a large area, abundant with fruit. I was riding in a truck through the area. The vines were hanging so low you could eat them just by putting your mouth up. Something seemed amiss while I was eating them so I grabbed one, (green grapes) and I squeezed it. A worm about an inch popped out and fell out. I threw the grape away.
This reminds me of the parable of the fig tree in Matthew 21:19:Now in the morning as he returned into the city he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way he came to it and found nothing therein but leaves only and said unto it. Let no fruit grow on thee henceforth and forever. And presently the Fig Tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it they marveled saying how soon is the Fig Tree withered way? And Jesus answered and said unto them. Verily I say unto you if you have faith and doubt not you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea it shall be done. And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer believing, you shall receive.
The fig tree only appeared to be ready to feed. The leaves come out after the figs do therefore Jesus thought that it was ready to eat from but it wasn't. It had the "appearance" of being right but wasn't.
Mark 1:21-28 even shows us that there are ministries that "appear" to be right and have all of the pomp and circumstance but, there is a worm in the fruit. A poison. The Destroyer, the Devourer is in the midst.
Jesus Heals a Man with an Unclean Spirit
Mar 1:21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
Mar 1:22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
Mar 1:23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
Mar 1:24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
Mar 1:25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
Mar 1:26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
Mar 1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
Mar 1:28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
Harken unto the Lord, All that glitters isn't gold.
