REPETITION: THE WATERING PROCESS
I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. (1 Corinthians 3:6)
“Revelation comes by repetition.” – Mark Hankins
Repetition is the watering process of the Word. We know that Paul and Apollos preached and taught the same Gospel. Paul said, “I planted and Apollos watered.” The planting would be the first time you heard the Word and received the seed of the Word. Apollos watered — he taught the same thing that Paul did over and over again.
Increase comes from the spirit of wisdom and revelation. However, the spirit of wisdom will not operate without repetition. Increase in faith, increase in fruitful- ness, and increase in blessing come from increase in revelation. Sometimes people reject the watering process because they think, “I already know that, so I am not going to pay attention. I’m not going to listen.” When people reject the watering process, there is no increase.
The Word of God is designed for increase — thirty, sixty, and a hundred fold! Where the Word is planted and watered appropriately, there is supernatural increase!
Confession: Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6 | NKJV)
