Helping people discover and embrace limitless life in Jesus!

Irreversible Blessing!

“ Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth 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.” – Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV)

Galatians declares that we have the blessing of Abraham, so it would benefit us to know what this blessing is. Many already know that like Abraham, we are made righteous by grace through faith, and not because of works of the law (Romans 5:1). However, that is as 631far as many have ventured towards understanding the blessing, but God has more for us to discover!

Galatians 3:9 says that ‘they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.’ (KJV) We are blessed in the same way that Abraham was blessed – so let’s by blessed by discovering the blessings!

  1. “the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.” – Genesis 24:1 (KJV)

  2. “And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.” – Genesis 13:2 (KJV)

  3. “Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken (i.e. advanced) in age;” – Genesis 18:11 (KJV, brackets mine)

  4. ““And the Lord hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.”– Genesis 24:35 (KJV)

  5. “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:– Genesis 12:2 (KJV)

  6. “For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.” – Romans 4:13 (KJV)

  7. “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;”– Genesis 22:17 (KJV)

  8. “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”– Genesis 12:3 (KJV)

  9. “And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac.” – Genesis 25:11 (KJV); “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him.,” – Genesis 26:12 (KJV)

  10. “And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her”. – Genesis 17:15-16 (KJV)

The weight of the blessings and Goodness upon our lives is staggering, shocking, and astounding. In Christ, we have become heirs of the world, overflowing with blessings in every facet of our lives to such an extent that those around us are also blessed abundantly in supernatural proportions!

These blessings are evidently not a one off thing, but in Christ we shall experience one 632blessing after another, both in the natural and in the spiritual. Because we have the blessing of Abraham upon our lives, will experience wealth, health, divine renewal of youth, and divine protection, to name just a few of the above blessings.

Also, just like Abraham’s wife Sarah, through God’s blessings we shall no longer by defined by how others have viewed us, because the blessings of God will re-define our status and our identity. In areas where we have seemed to be lacking, we will discover such over-abundance of blessing and influence that we will forget the past and rejoice!  (see Isaiah 61:7). We will not have to do anything to make this come to pass, either, as God will ensure that this is so through his grace given to us in Jesus Christ. This is why Paul prayed not that believers would gain their inheritance in Christ, but that they would know just how glorious and hope-filled their calling is, because they already have ‘the riches of the glory of Christ’s inheritance’, within them. In other words, the blessing is already within us and upon our lives, and Paul wants us as believers to know and recognise this! (Ephesians 1:18, KJV)

Through the blessing of Abraham upon our life, given to us in Jesus Christ, God has promised to curse the curses that come against us, and to bless these blessings upon our lives so that we go from one degree of blessing to another.

Now, don’t think that these blessings are for some and not others. Because Scripture has made it clear that Christ has qualified us, redeeming us from our sins and the curses of our633 mistakes and failures! (Galatians 3:13-14). Get ready to experience and see more blessings than ever before through the power of this Gospel message! (Romans 1:16)

 “ Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” – Ephesians 3:20 (KJV)

Being in heir of the world is also about unconditionally inheriting all of the promises included in Deuteronomy 28, such as:

  • Being blessed wherever you go (28:3)

  • Experiencing blessing in your family and career (28:4)

  • Being blessed with abundant material provision (28:5)

  • Experiencing blessings within your home and also outside of your home (28:6)

  • Being blessed with all authority over your enemies, such as sickness, poverty, and worry (28:7).

  • Being blessed with influence and favor with people (28:10)

Yes, being blessed to be an heir of the world means that in all circumstances you are ‘above only, and not beneath’ (28:13). It means that in Christ you have authority over ‘all the power of the enemy: nothing shall by any means hurt you’ (Luke 10:19, KJV). Do not think that these blessings will be a small trickle. In Christ, you have supernatural-sized blessings, just like Joseph in the Bible who prospered so much in Jesus that even his non-believing master could physically see that ‘the Lord made all that he did prosper in his hand’ (Genesis 39:2-3, KJV). So today, simply focus on the fact that God loves you. Take the focus off your performance, and place it onto your righteousness in Christ. You will reign with the blessings of Abraham, manifesting your identity as an heir of the world!

“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)” – Romans 5:17 (KJV).

Through the finished work of Jesus Christ, the blessing given to Abraham that kings would come from him, has been fulfilled in us (Genesis 17:6). We reign in and through Jesus 634Christ and his grace, and exercise royal authority on earth and over our circumstances (Revelation 1:6; 1 Peter 2:9) . When you reign, sickness, sin, disease, and poverty does not. When you reign, the abundance and supply of heaven is released into your body, your emotions, your mind, and your surroundings. This is truly good news!
