The first words ever spoken to man were - (Be Blessed!) Be fruitful! Multiply! Replenish! Subdue ( ALL lack, sickness, disease, and evil) Have Dominion over EVERYTHING!
(except other men, Be BLESSED to Be a Blessing) -Gen 1:26
This is God's will for all men, for all time.
EVERYTHING He has EVER said or done has to be in relation to and in light of these FIRST WORDS.
He never changes.
So now you never ever have to misunderstand or be confused about the intent of anything in the Bible as long as you look at it in the light of , and in relation to THE BLESSING!
Everything Jesus taught and did was in relation to and part of this same BLESSING. All blessings are a part of THE BLESSING.
God is able(willing and ready) to make ALL *Grace abound to you, that you always having all sufficiency at all times may ABOUND to every good work! -2 Cor. 9:8
*God's absolute willingness to treat you, and see you as if you had never sinned
Words are spoken to Bless (empower and change) or to curse..... Choose (words of) Life!
