    Exodus 1:1-7

    These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob, each with his household: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. All the descendants of Jacob were seventy persons; Joseph was already in Egypt. Then Joseph died, and all his brothers and all that generation. But the people of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly; they multiplied and grew exceedingly strong, so that the land was filled with them.

    Genesis 1:28

    And God blessed them. And God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.

    Genesis 15:5

    And he brought him outside and said, Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.Then he said to him, So shall your offspring be.

    Exodus 1:7

    But the people of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly; they multiplied and grew exceedingly strong, so that the land was filled with them.

    Exodus 12:37

    And the people of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and children.

    Matthew 28:19

    Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

    In the book of Acts Jesusdisciples went from 120 to 5000 in a short amount of time (from Acts 1 to Acts 4).


    Revelation 7:9

    After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

    Blessed (Bara): Gods favor on your life for His praise from your life.
    Fruitful (Para): To grow.
    Multiply (Rava): To become many.
    Fill (Mala): To accomplish the mission.




    Exodus 1:8-11

    Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, Behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and, if war breaks out, they join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with heavy burdens.

    John 16:33

    In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.



    Exodus 1:15-21

    Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live. 

    Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, Why have you done this and let the boys live? The midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian womenfor the Hebrew women are vigorous; they give birth before the midwife gets to them! So God dealt well with the midwives. And the people multiplied and grew very strong. And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families.
