Made to Multiply

Greetings, Prayer and Promise: Jeremiah 1:12 (NASB): “Then the LORD said to me, ‘You have seen well, because I am watching over my word to perform it.’” God Himself, Watches Over His Word, While Making Sure It Accomplishes Its Purpose. 

Make 2022 A New Year By Making It A New You: 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting; Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm; Tuesday and Thursday Broadcasts, 1pm.

Genesis 1:26-28 (NLT): (26) “Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.’ (27) So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (28) Then God blessed them and said, ‘Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.’”  God Designed Them, Genesis 1:26; God Created Them, Genesis 1:27; God Blessed Them, Gen. 1:28.

A Connection to God: They Were Made for Relationship, Genesis 2:18 (NLT), “It is not good for the man to be alone…” They Were With God, With Each Other—A Supernatural Connection. An Identification From God: They Were Made With a Purpose, Gen. 2:15 (NLT): “The LORD God placed the man in the Garden of Eden, to tend and watch over it.” They Were Placed In the Garden. They had a God-Given Assignment, God-Given Abilities, God-Given Anointing. A Manifestation By God: They Were Made to Thrive: God Created An Environment to Thrive. Supernatural Provision, Supernatural Power, Supernatural Protection. God Said: Be Fruitful—>Bear Fruit—> Sow Seed—>Genesis 8:22 (NASB): “While the earth remains, there will be seed time and harvest…” Multiply—–>Increase—–>Harvest. Fill The Earth—–>Reproduce—–> Replenish. Govern—–>Rule and Reign—–>Dominion. 

God Said It To Them To: Genesis 9:1 (NLT): “Then God blessed Noah and his sons and told them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth.” Genesis 17:20 (NLT): “As for Ismael, I will bless him also, just as you asked. I will make him extremely fruitful and multiply his descendants. He will become the father of 12 princes, and I will make him a great nation.” To Abraham as a promise about his son Ishmael. Genesis 28:3 (NLT): “May God Almighty bless you, and give you many children. And may your descendants multiply and become many nations!” A blessing from Isaac to Jacob. Genesis 35:11 (NLT): “Then God said, ‘I am El Shaddai—’God Almighty.’ Be fruitful and multiply. You will become a great nation, even many nations. Kings will be among your descendants.” A blessing to Jacob.

God Has Said It To Us: John 15:1-8 (NLT): “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for any-thing you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great joy to my father.” 

There’s A Blessing For Those In Christ: Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV): “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 2:6 (NLT): “For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with 

Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV): “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” 

God Wants You To Thrive. Exodus 23:20 (NLT): “See, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you.”
