Another short message from TTN Ministry on God’s commission on every person on earth. To listen to the short message, please click on the image above or the video below.

Genesis 1:26-28 NKJV
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

“Be fruitful and multiply”

Interesting .. when you check the Hebrew to my shock it doesn’t really mean how we understand it

The meaning of fruitful is not in the sense of creating more kids … but the real meaning is really .. be prosperous

Genesis 1:26-28 The Message
God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature, So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.”
God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”

You see when God created heaven and earth .. the principle was for every human being  …

TAKE DOMINION – be responsible for earth

You see part of God’s commission to every person is to be prosperous .. your God-given right, get kids and teach them how to take dominion for God’s Kingdom …

Let me just rephrase that .. to make myself clear

Being Prosperous is not an option .. This was God’s commission to every person on earth … it is not really optional … it is an obligation …

Luke 19:13 NKJV
13 So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’

One day Jesus is going to come back and hold every person accountable for what they did on earth

Hope this was helpful.
