“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.”
” Genesis 1:28 NKJV Gods Family Plan By David and Kathie Burnett Gods intent and design is for us to: 1. Increase - that everything we put our hands to would prosper 2. Multiply - be fruitful and be stewarded within the security and intimate relationship of a household 3. Govern - God gave the authority to rule over creation to man and wife not a religious, institutional, military or political structure.
“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.” Genesis 1:26-28 MSG
