The 21th Davar Summer Bible Seminar "God's Fruitful Family" 8/6〜8/11/2017

Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea … (Gen 1:28).

Our human world began with one married couple of husband and wife who were created in God's image. Our system of family comes from God and represents the way God exists in Trinity. No matter how much we may increase in number, this foundation of humanity will cannot be altered or replaced by something else. God said to Eve when the first couple sinned:

Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you (Gen 3:16)

A different type of spirit began to flow between the couple who had been created as one flesh. In this condition, God's kingdom would no longer be built on earth. So, God raised the family of Noah, and that of Abraham in order to show the world his system of family built upon his principles.

For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him (18:19).

Yet, Satan continued to hinder this plan by engraving his evil principles on people's hearts.

Judah's sin is engraved with an iron tool, inscribed with a flint point, on the tablets of their hearts and on the horns of their altars. Even their children remember their altars and Asherah poles beside the spreading trees and on the high hills (Jer 17:1-2).

As these principles permeated each family of Israel, the whole nation finally collapsed, and the temple was destroyed. This has proved that this God's system of family cannot be realized by human efforts. So, Jesus Christ came, and said:

Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother (Mat 12:49-50).

The church is a spiritual family built upon God's system of family. It cannot be built upon the commonly accepted principles of family in this world. Thus, we will learn some biblical principles that are essential for building a God's fruitful family.
