Twenty one - God multiplies the product of our produce
God multiplies the product of our produce. For the produce is the product of our lips and of the Word.
Multiplication is a formidable power, for it is the power of adding multiple copies of one number. And God is a formidable Power, for by His great power His creation has multiplied. For when He made the creatures of the earth, He “blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.’” (Genesis 1:22) And when God created Adam and Eve,“God blessed them; and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’” (Genesis 1:28) And when He destroyed mankind in the flood, He saved a remnant through Noah. And “God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.’” (Genesis 9:1) And God said to Abraham the father of all nations, “I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be blameless. I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and I will multiply you exceedingly.” (Genesis 17:1-2) And God blessed Ishmael and made Islam a great nation, “as for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold,I will bless him, and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall become the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.” (Genesis 17:20) And God blessed Jacob and made Israel a great nation, “I am God, Almighty; be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall come from you, and kings shall come forth from you.” (Genesis 35:9-11)
