"As for you, be fruitful and increase in number" God said to His first of creation of human life (Genesis 9:7). Even though he was referring to procreation of human life here, if we understand that God's Word - Holy Scripture, is a spiritual book with value for spiritual lessons taken from natural principles, we can see that God's ideal is always an increase in value, a growing momentum of principle He desires and this with strengths, not weaknesses.
Again we hear, be fruitful and multiply while God provides the seed for the sower, and it is fruitfulness with the constant momentum of an increase in value.
"Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”
Here's a picture of what God is looking for:
The lions in Africa will fight when a lioness is in heat and it is mating season. No, they don't fight with the lioness but the male lions will fight among themselves, and only the strong will survive. It is strength that mates and reproduces, and if carrying this principle of fruitfulness and the quality of value our fruitfulness must contain for human strength - mentally, emotionally and spiritually, it is never our weaknesses that we want to to reproduce as a form of fruitfulness. It is our strengths and this the righteousness of Christ, not or own. It is the transformation in us that God has so tediously worked, the wisdom of God we have embraced along the way, His Character developed in us - the believer, and this with the abundance of life containing His Blessings that will often make us a blessing to others as we are so full of His Life - to bless.
We can only be a blessing to others to the degree we have been blessed, to the degree we have received the blessings God has dispersed, and this in order to be that strength of fruitfulness to others in every way.
And so the fight is staying he course of change that must take place in us so we can be fruitful with strengths and not weakness. Only that which contains a value pleasing to God will He increase and honor. Only that which contains health for the mind, body,
spirit will God bless with an increase.
Between the words: "be fruitful and multiply," is a defining moment. If you won the fight you will be fruitful and multiply with strengths. If you lost the fight there's still time. God has not given up on you. And we can be sure there will be many other opportunities to win a fight for the sake of fruitfulness God's Way.
God is eager and always ready to receive a humble heart who will fully yield to Him, who will seek Him diligently and this to be conformed to His image and likeness. It's a life time of work, His Spirit transforming us - the believer, "from glory to glory" the scriptures teach. It's ongoing, always room for growth, always increasing in our frutfulness for the sake of multiplication.
This transformation for an abundance of fruitfulness, will require many fights for the win, but the glory of increase is like none other ! It's an increase of multiplication, a supernatural increase of measure !
2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
