Blessing of Increased Fruit

Scriptural Reference Isaiah 44:3-4

God promises to pour out His Heavenly Spirit on all those that ask (Joel 2:28-29) Proverbs 1:23) says that if we change after being chastised, God will pour out His Spirit uto us and make His words known to us. God promises that He will pour His spirit on our seed (offspring or fruit) (Isaiah 44:3-4). In this section, God says offspring and seed so I believe they are not the same thing. I believe this verse, when referring to seed, is referring to spiritual fruit. I don’t think there is just mere repetition here and I don’t think it is talking about physical fruit either. How many of us are actual fruit growing farmers?

The spiritual fruit that is being referenced here is in (Galatians 5:22-23); Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. God promises that these fruits will sprang up above the grass as tall as willows by the rivers (Isaiah 44:4). Jesus (God) promises again to give us the Holy Spirit so we can follow his statues (laws and commandments) (Ezekiel 36:26-27). God also says that there will be no more famine upon us and that He will multiply the fruit of our tree (Ezekiel 36:29-30). This can be a promise for physical blessing, however, I think the focus is also, and more importantly, on a spiritual blessing of increased spiritual fruit towards righteousness.

As earlier when Jesus was talking about eating His flesh and blood, He was not talking literally, but figuratively. So I think we should apply that same figurative thinking here and not be literal. The focus of God’s Kingdom and God’s Kingdom itself is spiritual, which is in fact way more real than the physical realm.
