I Will Make Of Thee A Great Nation

Another practicality in the scriptures, “I Will Make Of Thee A Great Nation.” What do these scriptures have in common?

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

I gave a broad open-ended question because there are a myriad of things these scriptures have in common. However, the fruitful and multiplying, as well as the replenishing of the earth is crucial.

By this time, a man from the family of Cush, Nimrod by name, had taken the fruitfulness and multiplying of the people and concentrated them into a kingdom, his kingdom to be specific. He allowed other families to become nations, but they were subject to his kingdom.

Now the title of today’s subject, “I will make of thee a great nation.”

Nimrod had a nation and now the Most-High Creator of all promised Abram that if he left his father’s house, and go to a land he would be shown, he’d get something out of it. What was that? Outside of land, Abram was promised by the Almighty that… well let me just quote it again.

“I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make your name great.”

Abram would be made into a great nation. Today there are over 190 nations worldwide on the earth. It is practical. Man, then man and woman, then man, woman, and child. What do we have? A family. Clusters of families form communities, and communities form cities, states, and nations.

Let’s rewind.

A man moves side by side with his wife because of their commonalities. They also need differences to allow them to keep each other sharp, so that is a good thing. However, they must have commonalities. They instill practical principles and the commonalities they live by into their children. Then they find other families with common practices and principles to build with.

Have you ever heard, “No you can’t play with those kids.”


“No, you can’t go over to Joey’s house.”

Why did Mom and Dad not want you going to Joey’s house? Joey’s mom and dad lived by different practices, and principles, and did not have much in common as your parents. Either that or Joey’s parents owed your parents money… comic relief.

At any rate, through commonalities, we build nations and have success thriving together as one. The wealthiest families, if the common practices and principles are right, assist and help the poorer families in the nation.

This keeps everyone happy and protective of each other.

Thus, quite naturally, nations without the same commonalities, with different practices, and different principles, wouldn’t want to commingle. More often than not, they have too many differences which would ultimately divide the people.

So if one of the families or two, decided they wanted to live by different principles, practices, and culture, they should and would leave the nation. They could start their own or find a nation that aligns more with their new ideologies. This is how it should be in practice, but some people feel like their new ideas should be forced upon everyone. Therefore, they do not leave, they start a campaign within to convert as many over to their new ideas.

When they get strong enough they attempt to overthrow the nation’s leaders.

Excuse the rant. The premise of this is that a vital practical piece to the scriptures next to land is the people who live upon the land. The nation and nations are built by communities, communities by families, families by man and woman. These all join together by commonalities, common principles, common practices, and common culture.

This was the first thing the Almighty shared with His steward and friend, Abram. Thus it is vitally important; why is it not just as vitally important to the greater Christian community?

Let’s leave it there for now.

Power be with you.
