MULTIPLICATION, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 12/11/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
|“And I will make My covenant (solemn pledge) between Me and you and will multiply you exceedingly” Gen. 17:2|
|He Will Multiply You|
God is in the multiplication business. It doesn’t matter what your need is today, God wants to increase you! One time in the Old Testament, God simply multiplied the sound of four men’s footsteps and caused them to sound like a mighty army. When their enemies heard them coming, they took off running. There were thousands of enemy troops running for their lives, scared to death, thinking they were being attacked by a massive army when, in fact, it was just four people!
Friend, God can make you seem bigger than you really are. He can make you look more powerful. He knows how to multiply your influence, your strength, your talent and your income. You don’t have to figure it all out. All you have to do is put your trust in Him. If you will release your faith and get up every day expecting God’s far and beyond favor, you’re going to see God multiply you in every area of your life!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father God, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. Thank You for Your promise to bless and multiply me. Direct my steps, keep me close to You as I increase in You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
In my experience, it seems really strange but many Christians never seem to understand that they were not only Born from above by making Christ Jesus Lord but that they were also born into the Kingdom of God to reproduce. I know of many so called Christians that have never helped another soul find Christ Jesus as Lord. And they really don’t feel responsible at all? In the Old Testament Isaiah in 52:7 makes this prophesy: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” David in Psalm 126:6 records this, “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
In the New Testament Jesus shares with us: “ Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matt. 28:19-20 and in John 12:24-26: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.” and also in John 17:20-26: “ Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.”
To help other souls into the Kingdom of God is the most important aspect of Christian maturity. Only athe mature can do this well. And it is inconvenient and uncomfortable at times in confronting the world as to their need to be born from above.
And it take time, energy and knowledge of the Word of God as well as being able to be guided by the Holy Spirit. But it is one of the major things that a Christian can do that will be sent ahead into the eternal Kingdom of God. I will deeply enjoy seeing the many faces of those that the Holy Spirit has allowed me to help into the Kingdom of God. We are born of God to spiritually grow up and to learn to reproduce. We are bought with a price and we have a job to do here on earth in assisting the Holy Spirit in the harvest of souls. Christ Jesus even instructed his disciples to pray for us to come and help with the harvest in Matt.9:36. “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” Our Heavenly Father has given us Christians the responsibility to share the Gospel of the Kingdom to our lost world.
