Healthy Womb, Healthy Land and Healthy Body

"If you listen to these case laws and follow them carefully, the LORD your God will keep the covenant and display the loyalty that he promised your ancestors. He will love you, bless you, and multiply you. He will bless the fruit of your wombs and the fruit of your fertile land." (Deut 7:12-13a)

"You will be more blessed than any other group of people. No one will be sterile or infertile - not among you or your animals. The LORD will remove all sickness from you." (Deuteronomy 7:14-15a)

He promised healthy wombs and healthy land and healthy bodies in the same way he said they would use abundance to have healthy relationship. He said earlier that there would be no poor in Israel because people must share their abundance.

It is Father's heart that we live a life of Kingdom abundance, that we would live a life of abundance, a life with much fruit, so that the world would know him. The resurrection should be manifested in a life lived properly in the Spirit.

The Kingdom still functions according to the commandments. We need the commandments and we need God's voice.

I am still chewing over the four offices Yahweh set up in Israel - the priest, the judge, the king and the prophet. Jesus fulfills all these offices but he also uses us in these offices. Many of us handle the priest (the commandments) but we often forget the authority of the King. The place of the judge will come later but also plays a role in the discernment in our lives. The one we neglect the most is the Prophet - the voice of God.

If we want to move in the abundance of the Kingdom we need to learn obedience to the Voice in our walk of righteousness.

Still thinking through most of this.
