The Kingdom Expansion

The Kingdom Expansion

 Scripture: Genesis 1:28

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moved upon the earth.”


  I have a question for you. If I were to ask you to explain or describe the Kingdom in one word…and one word only…

What word would you choose? Take a few seconds to think about that now…real quick… What word did you come up with? 

When I ask people to describe the Kingdom in one word the answers, I typically get are… Most say Love…many will say Righteousness…and some will say Peace or Joy. And while all of those are certainly found in the Kingdom…after over a decade of dedicated time to studying The Kingdom of God…

I believe there is a different word that best describes and explains the Kingdom…

And That One Word Is… EXPANSION            

You see from the very beginning…In Genesis 1 we see that God desired to expand His kingdom. He desired to Expand His Heavenly Kingdom (An Invisible Realm) …to a visible physical realm called Earth. 

God then further wanted to Expand His influence over this new physical realm called Earth, so he created Man (Male and Female) you and I in His image and put us in charge over the Earth.               

 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” – Genesis 1:28 

So, from the very beginning till now…God has always been in the business of Expansion. Jesus even as a young boy understood this which is why he said to his mother “Why did you come looking for me? Didn’t you know that I’d be about my father’s business.”           

Have you ever wondered what business that is? Well, I believe it’s pretty obvious…

The Father’s business then is the same as it is today and that is the business of EXPANSION…

Specifically Expanding the Kingdom of God here on Earth.

And while most if not all of the World’s financial experts are predicting 2023 will be a year of a global economic recession….

I am here to declare that it is the will and purpose of God for you and I to Expand personally, and for his Kingdom to Expand in 2023 and Beyond. 

So which word…which prophecy…which declaration will you choose to embrace?

Recession or Expansion? The choice is yours…             

Well, if like me you are choosing Expansion…then consider this my personal invitation to sharing daily digest to all social media groups, individual contacts, friends, and family. I also encourage you to begin personal evangelism as you tell people about Jesus anywhere, everywhere, and to everyone you may come in contact with. As a result, you are directly or indirectly involved in the “Kingdom” expansion God has always desired to have.


Dear Lord, I pray for the grace to consciously dedicate my life to the Kingdom expansion. I ask for the zeal and by the Spirit to be willingly involved in Kingdom expansion business henceforth, Amen.
