“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and 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.””
Genesis 1:28 NKJV #youareblessed#fruitful#multiply#filltheearth#subdue#dominion#onefortheroad#lawoffirstmention
It is interesting and pertinent to note that the first thing that God did for man after he created man was to bless man. It wasn't a coincidence or an accident, it was intentional and symbolic. Because the blessing was an employee's handbook; a manual for operation. It wasn't just a pronouncement but an endorsement, an empowerment for man to fulfill purpose. Having established this, What did the blessing mean? What did it signify? In compliance with the law of first mention which basically alludes that the first time a word is mentioned, its use or implication is its truest meaning. The word "blessed" was first mentioned in our text, and aligning with the law of first mention its implication is in the same verse, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and 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.” And so to be blessed entailed the ability to be FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY, the capacity to FILL THE EARTH and SUBDUE IT, and the responsibility to exact DOMINION. These we will expound subsequently but till then, friend! Realize that you are blessed, for it was the first thing that God did for you because you simply could not live without the blessing, not even for a moment. For to live without the blessing is similar to the futile attempt to try to exist outside your natural habitat.You are blessed! That is what it is :unarguable, undeniable, unapologetic.

*Still I Rise*
Though it appears my dreams are shattered, my hope is lost, and I'm alone in this world;
When it seems my life is over and I have nowhere to run;
When I'm in great pain that can't be washed away by my river of tears;
Even when my heart bleeds and my soul hurts;
Though the failures from my past and the uncertainties in my future threaten to take away my joy;
When I grow weary and cry out for help but all I hear is "You have to be strong"; I Rise.
When, on many nights, my sleep is stolen by worries about who I will become in future;
As I realize that I am not alone in this struggle;
I Rise when my future calls out to me.
I Rise when God says to me: "Be of good cheer, I've overcome the world." I Rise to take Charge!
I Rise to take Territories!
I Rise to take Dominion!
I Rise to a better Future!
I Rise to a New Hope!
I Rise Daily!
Still I Rise!

I don’t even know where to start...
Last night a couple of friends and I reluctantly went and saw the film, Dominion @dominionmovement at the Mechanics’ school of arts in Sydney.
I have never even been able to sit through the film Earthlings, so this was extremely confronting and frightening for me! BUT I forced myself to stay and watch, even when others had to get up and leave, because our animal friends lives matter/ed and what I was about to endure was nothing in the face of what our poor innocent and defenceless friends go through.
It left me questioning the human race😡 and what I can possibly do to make bigger changes to help them!
Being vegan, while it’s the end goal for all, right now, is simply just not enough!
What else can we do to break the chain of unnecessary violence, greed, corruption, cruelty, destruction of our health and our planet..what more can we do????
1) GO VEGAN
2) BE A VOICE WHERE YOU CAN AND EDUCATE
3) DONT BUY/WEAR THE SKIN OF OTHERS
4) BECOME AN ACTIVIST
5) RESCUE ANIMALS
6) VOLUNTEER FOR CAUSES LIKE @dominionmovement and @anonymousforthevoiceless
7) READ BOOKS AND WATCH INFORMATIVE VIDEOS TO EDUCATE YOURSELF SO YOU CAN EDUCATE OTHERS
8) USE SOCIAL MEDIA AS PLATFORM TO INFORM
9) DONT BUY PRODUCTS THAT TEST ON ANIMALS. This app can help you @crueltycutter
AND DON’T FORGET to do things along the way that remind you of the joy of vegan living, and take it one day at a time. You've chosen an amazing, exciting and profound way to live your life – be sure to enjoy it, so that others see the benefits too🙏🏻 @theoriginalvegansociety
*Please add more ways we can help below...my brain is still in a bit of turmoil after watching Dominion😏
