The people in the auditorium beheld new insights into God’s plan for their lives during this session. Dr Winston explained Isaiah 51:16 where God talked about planting the heavens, which is also the title of his message.
Reading from John 15:3-5 and Genesis 1:26-28, he made us understand that God made mankind and gave him what to do – have dominion over everything. “God made man, after he had made everything else, to rule, govern, be stewards and exercise authority.”
He said that the way to achieve this is by being fruitful, multiplying and replenishing the earth. God blessed man. “This blessing is an empowerment for success. It is the power God used to create and He gave it to man.”, he said.
Dr Winston taught that 1 Corinthians 3:9 explains why God gave man this power which is that God wants us to work with him. God’s plan is that earth be like heaven and man to be like God. For that to happen He needs stewards.
Isaiah 55:8-10, Jeremiah 29:11, Genesis 12:2 all point to the fact that God has planned to make you a walking supply house. “To be fruitful means to produce, to create and to bring forth. God has planned for you to be like him. God made man so that if he doesn’t like what he sees he can change it. God gave Adam words to manage the earth.”, he taught.
Dr Bill explained, reading from Matthew 12:33-37, Mathew 15:13, Proverbs 23:7, that we all come into the kingdom with grown trees. He went further to say, “These trees are belief systems and thought patterns. If you don’t have the right tree then you cannot produce the right fruit. Whatever you believe you become. Whatever is in you is going to manifest outside. I am the captain of my ship. My life is on the inside of me and I can determine how far I go.”
He pointed out from Luke 17:20, Matthew 14:14-16, Matthew 15:29-31 that all that you need in this life is in the Kingdom. “The Kingdom is in you. You have a production centre in you for yourself and anything you want to minister in the earth. Lack and poverty exists because of an absence of self production.”, he charged the audience.
He rounded up the session encouraging us to be fruitful, to create and to produce. You have words and it is time to get to work. Like Jesus you can operate in both the physical and spiritual realm. Stop making small plans.
