Galatians 3:13,14, 29 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. Being made
a curse for us. For it is written, cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.
That the Blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ.
That we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. And if you be
Christ’s then are you Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.
If you read Deuteronomy 28 you will see the Blessings and the
curses that came upon the children of Israel, Abraham’s seed.
The Blessings: Prosper in Spirit, Soul, Body and Financially.
The Curses: Poverty, sickness and spiritual death.
Abraham lived by faith to receive the promises. The Bible
says he pleased God. Just think how much more power we have to live by faith
with Christ living in us. But the blessings of God will not just fall on you,
you must believe for them and accept them by Faith.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him. For he that
comes to God, must believe that He is and that He is the rewarder of those that
diligently seek Him.
When the Old Covenant was in effect, the power of sin was in
force. Satan had perverted Adams authority, using fear and death on men. Sin
plagued man day and night because he was not a re-created spirit.
In the New Covenant, God rules by life and faith. We have
Jesus in us and the power of the spirit to stand on the word. We are one with
Christ. Be strong in the Lord and the power of his might. Walk by faith not by
sight. (II Cor. 5:7)
Certain elements of the Old Covenant are still in effect. We
still have to walk right before God. We still have to obey his commandments and
conditions laid down in His word. For every promise there is a condition. If we
are not receiving the blessings, maybe we are not fulfilling the conditions. We
cannot have hatred, bitterness, un-forgiveness, doubt & unbelief in our
lives and expect to receive from God. James says we cannot be double-minded or
we will not receive anything from God.
James 1:5-8 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to
all men liberally, and withholds not; and it shall be given him. But let him
ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea
driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall
receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways
Do you need something from God? Find the scripture that says
it is yours, and claim it.
To not receive all that God has for us, is to say that Jesus
died in vain. To say “I can’t” when God says Phil. 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me” is going against the word.
Speak the Word! Live the Word!
Proverbs 4:20-23 My son, attend unto my words, incline your ear unto my
sayings. Let them not depart from your eyes. Keep them in your heart. For they
are life to those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your
heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.
Walk in obedience to God and His Word, and He will bless you
Jesus was the fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenant.
