Galatians 3:13-14 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: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
What is my stake, how am I linked to the covenant, because I am born again, I am redeemed. Redeemed from what? From the curse that came upon Adam which was passed down to all generations after him. The curse made man live in scarcity and lack but for man to work in the original dominion which God gave to Adam before the fall, the curse had to be removed. Why? Because you cannot have the combination of the curse and the blessing together, one has to be removed for the other to rest. This was exactly the mission of Christ, the burden remover and yoke destroyer.
He became the curse in your stead, he removed it and nailed it on the cross so that there will be room for the blessing to rest on you. The blessing of Abraham came on you instead of the curse, the blessing is a benefit of the covenant that God had with Abraham. Genesis 12:13. Genesis 22:16-17 Because of the blessing, Abraham became very rich in Gold and silver which is the equivalent of money and that is financial dominion. So it is the blessing that makes rich and does not add sorrows to it. Proverbs 10:22.
Breaking news! Money will not make you rich. It is the blessing of the Lord and nothing more. So if you want to enjoy true riches that endure, sorrow free, trouble free and stress free, go after the blessing and not after the money. Having money does not mean you have the blessing but having the blessing and appropriating the blessing will ensure you have money more than enough for you and much more to spread around. Say this out loud ‘ I have the blessing of the Lord, and by this I am becoming rich in all things. But how does the blessing make rich? The blessing is the anointing or the endowment to prosper, it is intangible and invisible but its effects are. It is like the invisible coat of many colours of Joseph that is on you and makes everything to work in your favour, just like it did for Joseph. Even when the physical coat was removed by his brothers, the invisible coat was still on him and making things to work for him such that everywhere he found himself, the blessing pushed him to the top. In Potiphar’s house, he became the head servant because he possess wisdom to manage affairs of the house, administrative skills and his loyalty was unquestionable until he was framed up and accused wrongly. In the prison, he came on top because of these skills and in addition the gifts of dreams and interpretation of dreams. All these skills, gifts and talents are as a result of the blessing.
Galatians 3:14 – 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
If you look at the above scripture, the receiving of the promise of the spirit through faith can only be actualized after we have received the blessing. The reason you are filled with the Holy Spirit today is because the curse has been removed and you have the blessing. Having the Holy Spirit is having the power, the spirit of knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Having the Holy Spirit is having access to the mind of God. Having the Holy Spirit is having the same ability that Jesus had when he was here. He knew what to do when he was faced with financial challenges; he knew the right buttons to press to make things happen. The scripture says in:
1 Corinthians 2:12 now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Since you have moved from curse to blessing, you have the spirit of God to direct and lead you into all that God has reserved for you to prosper, you have the spirit to tell you what to do and when to move. Friend, this is awesome, the bible says:
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed[ be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly[ places] in Christ:
if the blessing is in the spiritual realm then we need to bring it into the physical realm and that can only be done by the spirit. So what does the blessing do? It gives room for the spirit to rest upon you and by the spirit you have access to heavenly treasures and riches.
