Mark 16:15-18 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptised will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
THEY ARE CORRECT, THIS IS THE MANDATE THAT JESUS GAVE HIS EKKLESIA.
However, this was not the mandate that Father gave Mankind. The initial mandate was given in Genesis 1:28
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth & subdue it, have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Unfortunately, this mandate has been placed on the back-burner & is receiving little if any attention from God's children today.
Does this mean that this mandate is redundant? No, a thousand times no!
Jesus died on the cross to reconcile us back to God. His Blood accomplished so much on our behalf, reversing the curse of Genesis 3 at the fall of man. However, the blood was not shed to reverse the curse on the earth. The mandate still stands, we are responsible to still fulfil Genesis 1:28.
Proverbs 11:11 says: “By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is torn down.” The challenge to every believer is that - in Jesus - we are made upright, therefore God has entrusted to us the power to exalt a city/region or province (the earth!)! Please note it is not through prayer or warfare that we do the exalting. It is by repentance & blessing!
