Be Fruitful

 By: Apostle Skhumbuzo Sangweni

  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply… (Genesis 1:28)

From the beginning God determined that we must be fruitful, the first blessing that was bestowed upon man was intended to be fivefold in its visible manifestation and operative power, the first fold being; fruitfulness by definition fruitfulness means; to bring forth, to grow and to increase. All fruitfulness answers to the principle of sowing, this is the process that necessitates that the seed must leave your hands into an appointed ground. Whilst fruits answers to seed, we see clearly in the scripture above the fruitfulness is called is the evidence of the blessing. “And God blessed them as said be fruitful”

Whilst man is blessed to produce fruit, however unless the fruit manifest he remains devoid of the blessing experience. The blessing is a spirit “He blessed us with all spiritual blessings” (Eph 1:3) It is however meant to be experienced in the visible realm. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.” (Deut 28:4).

Fruitfulness and increase doesn’t come by default, it comes by principle namely the principle of sowing this blessed truth of sowing governs the power of God that causes increase in the spirit. “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.” (1 Cor 3:6)

It always begin with God blessing us and it always ends with God increasing us, our sonship responsibility is to yield the seed into a good ground.

Now may He that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness, (2 Cor 9:10). This scripture suggests that God has a ministry “he that ministereth” The Lord both executes and supply the seed, once the seed is in your hand the bible now calls you a sower, this is actually a name given to God himself    “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.” (Matt 13:37) When you sow the good seed that the Lord has supplied you with, you become like the son of Man; Jesus Christ himself because He is a sower, sowing is God’s ability on man, with potent power for increase. The fallen Adamic man is not a sower by nature, he doesn’t have the ability to touch the realms of God for increase, that’s why he who sows is aligned to Christ the last Adam The Lord from above who is abundantly generous towards us, not only does he gives us a seed to sow He also gives us bread to eat. “…both ministers bread for your food” in our hands we have both seed and bread, we should be careful not to eat the seed, because it has been anointed for the increase of the fruits of our righteousness, however this anointing only works when the seed is in the ground. “But his master said to him, ‘You’re an untrustworthy[a] and lazy servant!…why didn’t you deposit my money in the bank? 27 Then I would have received it all back with interest when I returned (Matt 25:26-27) The spiritual ground where you plant your seed works like the banking system which yields interest and profit in human terms, spiritually these are called increase and fruitfulness.
