1 Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.” 2 Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 3 And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. 4 Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, 5 but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell. 6 So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” 8 Now Cain talked with Abel his brother;[a] and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. Genesis 4:1-8 New King James Version (NKJV)
We must begin increasing our expectation for the life God gave us. God’s original intent for man was for Adam to rule in the earth and for His people to have dominion in the earth. Because of Adam and Eve’s sin they and all man kind lost that privilege. So in order to remedy the problem, God sends another Adam who’s name is Jesus and He is the second or the last Adam. The fist Adam took all mankind into sin and the second Adam… JESUS, raised all mankind out of it.
JESUS did not die and save us so we could go to church. JESUS died to reestablish us in the lifestyle of ADAM. Through JESUS we don’t work for the world but the world works for us. The church teaches us to be good and go to church. But Jesus didn’t die so you could go to church. Jesus died and became what you were so that when He rose you could become what He was. That we would no longer be foreigners and aliens but sons and daughters of the high God. And that ladies and gentlemen comes with inalienable rights, benefits, and privileges.
Not only are we freed from sin through JESUS… not only are we guaranteed a spot in the heavenlies, we are reinstated to the original authority of Adam and Eve. That means we have been reinstated to the original authority of the first Adam. So what is that? And how do we function in the authority granted to us?
When Adam and Eve where put in the garden they were told to do two things: tend the garden and multiply the earth. So simply put… SOW SEED. Functioning in true authority is sowing seed. Functioning the way Adam and Eve where originally designed to function is to sow seed so that there may come a harvest.
That is hard on us because nobody prays for seeds. We pray for harvest. You pray for a raise. Have you seeded that raise? You pray for favor. Have you given favor to anyone? You need mercy. Have you been merciful? You believe you are going to find friends this year. Have you been friendly? You ask God to bless you. Have you blessed God? Stop waiting on a harvest and start sowing seed.
