Are You a Proliferator
June 22, 2019 | Bishop Hugh Thomas
In Genesis 1, 2, and 3 – You can succeed! You can find out who God is and who you are.
Genesis 1:26-28 - And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
- We were created in the Spirit
- We were formed in the Soul
- We were anointed in the Flesh
Each had a part.
Isaiah 45:1-7 -
1Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.
5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.
7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
Genesis 2:4-5 - These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
Till – To serve. There was no man to serve, to bring to pass the PPE (Purpose, Plan, and Expectation) of almighty God.
Genesis 2: 6-7 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
You were formed in Soul and God breathed (anointing).
Genesis 2:15 - And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Jezreel means God scatters. God scatters seed on the whole earth. Man was called to sow in his designated garden.
Proliferation means to increase. Everyone has their own designated garden.
Proliferation is in your garden.
For example, the gentiles were the garden for someone else, not for the whole group of disciples.
Dress it means to make serve. God put Adam in the garden to serve him.
Keep it means to maintain service.
**Serve God no matter what situation or circumstance you are going through.
God had to teach Adam to eat.
God put a taste in you for life, his word. Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Jesus = Cross = Tree
Every tree you can eat thereof. Each one of us can eat of the cross. God put a taste in you for Jesus.
Genesis 2:17 - But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Don’t touch the tree of decision, you don’t have that right. When we become decision makers, we introduce our ground to fear.
Adam was formed to be willing and obedient to God’s divine decisions. To consume life more abundantly. God will never short change you at the table.
Saturday Nights we come together at 6:00pm for a night of prayer in preparation for Sunday Mornings Service!
