I will make them and the places around My mountain a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing. Ezekiel 34:26.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Blessing day. That is what today is. Showers of Blessing on My holy mountain—Zion. There you dwell as a people set apart—a people I have Blessed. “As I see him from the top of the rocks, and I look at him from the hills; behold, a people who dwells apart, and will not be reckoned among the nations.” Numbers 23:9.
Jesus loved you and by His blood released you from your sins and made you a kingdom of priests unto Me. Revelation 1:5-6. In Him, I have made you a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people set apart. A people the LORD has blessed.
And it has to do with your great good Shepherd, who brings you to the mountain of blessing, to green pastures and restful waters of peace, and your great High Priest who blesses you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies as He ushers you into the Holy of Holies to come with confidence to My throne of grace. Blessed to be a blessing. Showers of blessing.
In blessing I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Heaven in Christ Jesus. And no one can curse what I have blessed. In Me, surrounded by the Blessing wall, evil cannot touch you. I surround you with My favor like a shield.
From the beginning to the end, from the first to the last, it is all Blessing. I spoke Blessing from the day you first opened your eyes to the day Jesus went up to Heaven to the day that you come home to Me and then Jesus will say, “Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 25:34.
Jesus became a curse for you so that you could be blessed. “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:13-14. Yes, I sent Jesus to bless you in redemption, salvation, and abundant life—the life of the Blessed. He is your city of refuge. Your place of rest, leading you back to the garden of Eden as if sin had never been.
But many of you are not living the Blessing. Your lives look too much like those who have not believed in My Son. Like those without a Shepherd.
How do you live in the Blessing? How do you see it operating in your life?
You tap into it. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose trust is the LORD. For he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8. And what pulls you out of the Blessing? “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD. For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when prosperity comes, but will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, a land of salt without inhabitant.” Jeremiah 17:5-6.
When you meditate on My Word day and night it will change you from a dry barren bush that does not see good when it comes to be like a beautiful spreading tree that hits an underground spring- live streaming with a continuous feed, whose leaves never wither and whose fruit does not fail. “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.” Psalm 1.
And how to you stay tapped into that Blessing stream, poured out of the floodgates of Heaven flowing from My throne? You must be rooted and grounded in Christ. And Christ is My anointed Word come down from Heaven to give life to the world. He is the rock struck so that living water gushed forth. And you must build your life on the foundation rock, the keystone, by hearing and doing My Words. For in My Word is the Blessing. In Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. And if you abide in Him and His Words abide in you, you will bear much fruit and you will be Blessed.
I sent My Word to heal you, deliver you from all destruction, and to BLESS you. There is no other word the same. Blessed is the one who keeps My Word, he shall not be moved by any storm. My Blessing makes rich and adds no sorrow with it.
Jesus took the curse so you could be Blessed. If you take away the curse all that is left is blessing, the way I planned and made the earth from the start. Everything started as blessed and everything will finish as blessed. In My Kingdom there is no curse. “There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.” Revelation 22:3-5.
The Blessing is an empowerment to prosper and walk in good health. It is abundant healed whole and radiant life. Essentially, it is My life in you, My Spirit in you, raising you up to eternal life. It is resurrection power creating anew the joy of a blameless life in full communion with Me. It is a life free of sin, guilt, shame, blame, and fear. It is a life of answers, free from doubt and free from darkness. It is a life lived in the fragrance and sunshine of My love.
The past it is history, the future a mystery, but you know who it is has hold of your hand, I lead you from darkest alleys into the pleasant valleys filled with the fragrance and the sunshine of My love. And I lead you on to My holy Mountain, the assemblies of Zion, the place of grace, and there I bless you with showers of blessing. There is no harm on My holy mountain. It is there I make you joyful in My house of prayer.
My desire is to bless you. My ways are paths of loving kindness and truth. “Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation. I will hear what God the LORD will say; for He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; but let them not turn back to folly. Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land. Lovingkindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth springs from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven. Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its produce. Righteousness will go before Him and will make His footsteps into a way.” Psalm 85:7-13.
Speak blessing. Bless and never curse. Cursing is whenever you speak words of failure, defeat, lack, sickness, poverty, depression, anger, bitterness, impurity, fear, anxiety, shame, offense, and I could go on but you get the idea. It is being in the darkness, a barren wilderness of a fruitless life. Hating and being hated. Blessing is whenever you speak words of encouragement, victory, healing, health, strength, joy, prosperity, provision, forgiveness, sweetness, light, peace, security, deliverance, direction, guidance, beauty, love, and I could go on but you get the idea. Bless your body, never curse it. Do not declare it ill, old, failing, corrupt, impure, unclean, and the like, instead bless every part of you and speak life into it and perfect functioning, speak thanksgiving over it and rejoice in it. Your body is a gift and I will raise it glorified on the last day. Blessed.
Bless those around you—your family, your friends, your co-workers, your boss—the apostles called Joseph, a Levite f Cyprian birth, “Barnabus,” which means “son of encouragement” when he came and joined the early Christian community. Would people call you that? Be an encourager and you will be a blessing. And I will shower you with blessings, for the more blessing you speak and give out, the more flows back in. “Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:14.
Tap into the stream by tapping into Jesus, My Word.
I love you. I bless you. Will you bless Me?
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits.” Psalm 103:1-2.
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, ‘Thus you shall bless the sons of Israel. You shall say to them: “The LORD bless you, and keep you; the LORD make His face shine on you, and give you His grace. The LORD smile upon you and give you shalom peace.” So they shall put My name on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them.” Numbers 6:22-27.
