Faith for Fruitfulness and Multiplication
1. Faith is of the heart - It will grow as strong as you allow it to grow
Mark 11:23-24 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
● Do you have the spirit of faith for fruitfulness and multiplication in your heart and if you do how strong is it
Acts 6:1-7 Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly
Gen 1:28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue (conquer) it; have dominion
Gen 9:1 So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.
Gen 17:2-6 "My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly." Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful"
● The fruit of God’s blessing is fruitfulness and multiplication
● Abraham - Your new name is exceedingly fruitful multiplier
Gal 3:14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. (Here is the Devils nightmare)
2. Faith to be fruitful and to multiply come from a deep desire
Jn 15:7-8 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
● Faith and life will go in the direction of our dominant desires
● A desire to love and please the Lord and do His will, to help stop people from going to hell, to help people to be established (discover their freedom), to disciple God an army, and a desire to stand before God one day and give account for my life
Prov 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for out of will come the direction of your entire life.
Matt 9:36-10:1 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Mark 10:27-31 "Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel's, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first."
