And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:11-12.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Heaven. Ephesians 1:3. Jesus became a curse for you to redeem you from the curse of the law in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to all people, so that you would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13-14.
What am I talking about? It is important for you to know so that you may not only realize what you have in Christ Jesus but be diligent about making sure you have all that I have freely given you in Him. The Blessing is yours but for it to manifest in your life you must receive and take it by faith and enforce it by faith. And this is where many fall away and conclude the Blessing is not for them. But they are wrong, and My people perish for lack of knowing of what is theirs in Christ Jesus and thereby let Satan get away with stealing their seed, their harvest, and their Blessing.
You receive the gift of salvation by faith, not by your deeds whether righteous or unrighteous. I call sinners to repentance and qualify the ungodly. I make sinners into saints. When your heart is towards Me it will lead to good works, such as Cornelius, which brings you to the attention of My heart to reveal My Son to you, but you do not receive the Spirit by the works of the Law but by hearing with faith. And once you have been made righteous by faith, your can walk in righteousness by faith and see the working of miracles in your life as you do the works that Jesus did and greater as you attach to Him as a branch to the vine and draw all you need from Him in a continuous feed, a live stream that you have tapped into by the Spirit.
You begin the New Covenant by the Spirit, and it is My Spirit that quickens your mortal body. You cannot be perfected by the flesh, it is opposed to the spirit. Your born again spirit, joined up with My Spirit, must be the authority in your daily life over your mind (thoughts) and your actions (works). This is the only way you can walk free and enjoy your life of dominion authority on earth. I provide you with My Spirit joined with your spirit and My Spirit works miracles among you, not by the flesh, but by hearing, speaking, and acting with faith.
Abraham believed Me, and I reckoned his faith to him as righteousness.
Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham. The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “All the nations will be blessed in you.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer. Galatians 3:7-9.
Under the commandments of the Law that I gave Moses for forming the great nation of Israel, the people had a choice of actions, just as the citizens of any nation do even now. If you obey you have good success in what you do and are not curtailed in your activities. If you choose not to obey you may end up imprisoned and/or fined.
If My people followed My Law in obedient love, I could give them days of provision, power, majesty, and might for then I had authority to bless them as they had submitted to My jurisdiction even though on earth. I was able to give them days of Heaven on earth and to protect them from the destroyer.
But if you rebel against My Word, as Adam and Eve did, all creation, which is sustained by My Word, will turn against you and you have opened your door to Satan. There are only two choices you are either under My jurisdiction and My laws or you are under Satan’s jurisdiction and his laws.
But that is not what I am telling you here. Under the law if you disobeyed My Word the curse alighted in your life and there was no escape when your sin was intentional.
For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.” Galatians 3:10.
But you do not have to trust in yourself to be perfect as I am perfect, you can entrust yourself to Me by being rooted and grounded in Jesus, that is, attached to His life in you like a branch to a vine, and follow the lead of the Holy Spirit, drawing up all you need for life and godliness as you produce the fruit of the Spirit in your life just be being attached by faith and speaking that faith to call into the earth what I have freely given you in the Spirit. “The righteous man shall live by faith.” However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, “He who practices them shall live by them.” No one but Jesus has ever been able to keep all the Law perfectly, but because He kept it perfectly I now account that to you who live your life through, in, and with Him.
Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.” John 15:9-12.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.1 John 4:7-10.
And if you yield to the Holy Spirit I can sanctify you in truth, My Word is truth. And that is how Jesus told His disciples He had made them clean—by My Words that He had shared with them.
You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 14:3-5.
I told Abraham I blessed him to make him a blessing to others as well. When you are blessed it overflows to others. More than you can contain. And why do I bless you from the start? Love. Love blesses. Love heals. Love gives gifts to the beloved. True love is forever and has no limits. And I am the only one that can love you like that for I AM Love. I think in Love, talk in Love, and walk in Love. Everything else is foreign to Me and cannot enter.
Since no one was being justified by the Law since no one could keep it perfectly, I offered you justification by substitute, Jesus justified you by giving His own eternal life in the flesh to fulfill the debt owed to Me under the law. An eternal life for an eternal life. But none born of Adam’s seed, which is all of you, had an eternal life to live let alone give. So I sent Jesus as propitiation for your sins. He took all your sins and offenses, and He gave you My righteousness, which is also His to give. And My blessings are on the head of the righteous. Wealth and riches are in your house and you have no fear of a bad report for your heart is steadfast in Me. Psalm 112.
Disobedience brought the curse but the obedience of Jesus brought the Blessing. I redeemed you from your sins by His blood shed for you. He made peace through the blood of His cross and reconciled all to Me.
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.
What does this mean to you? You are blessed with the gift of righteousness by faith like blessed Abraham but there is more beyond where Abraham walked. You have received the promise of the Spirit. And what is that promise? Your sins gone, a new heart in which I put My Spirit, and eternal life beginning now. I have made you a partaker of My divine nature and a joint heir with Christ so that you are not only heir of the world with faithful Abraham but heir of the Kingdom as well. Your sins are not just forgiven, they are gone, borne by Jesus and punished in Him. In Him, I have justified you and made Him to be wisdom unto you, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. In Him alone are you made perfect, that is, complete in spirit, soul, and body.
Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him [Jesus] forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified through the Law of Moses. Acts 13:38-39.
Blessed beyond measure. But remember the measure you use in measured back to you. You determine the measure you receive. An unlimited amount is available but “he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9:6. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for I love a cheerful giver. And I am able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed. 2 Corinthians 9:7-8.
Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:10-11.
The Blessed person is a diligent person. No sluggard is blessed. I prosper the work of your hands. When I blessed man when I made him it was an empowerment to bear much fruit and to increase, not decrease.
Jesus taught you. He did not just come to sit around and be served. No, He came to serve you. He came to seek out and save the lost. I sent Him to undo the works of the devil. He walked in the Blessing and in Him so can you.
You will notice in the first parable My Son told about the seed sown on different types of ground, the harvest came through perseverance. Faith does not draw back but goes forward no matter what gets in the way. You must not only be a hearer of the Word, though that is how faith comes, but you must also be a doer to manifest it out to the physical realm.
I give seed to the sower and bread to the eater. I give you the seed to sow, that is one of the first things I gave Adam and Eve to prosper them and make them increase, the seed. Genesis 1:29. And that is the first parable Jesus told you as well. And in the spiritual realm, My Word is the seed and it produces the harvest.
The most important seed to sow is the Word but you can also sow tithes and offerings and other ways to make increase but sow your offerings with faith declarations for the harvest you are seeking. e He
I give you the seed to sow by increasing you more and more and when you do sow as I direct you in prayer and by My Word and by My Spirit I make it grow through your cooperation in cultivation of the seed b perseverance and working out what I work within you, until you have the promised harvest. And depending on your diligence in applying and doing My Words you will reap thirtyfold, sixtyfold, or a hundredfold.
It all begins with obedience, it leads to partnership, and ultimately leads to ownership to reign with Me in life through Christ Jesus your Lord as joint heirs with Him. I have called you to partnership with My Son. 1 Corinthians 1:9. The greater works.
Do not despise small beginnings, they lead to greater ends. Even a small seed planted and grown had produce a great tree. And the more you sow, the more will grow. The seed comes before the harvest. Selah. If you don’t plant and cultivate there will be no harvest.
I love you. I am the One who teaches you to profit and the way you should go. Of first importance in sowing is the tithe. You must tithe to live under an open Heaven and to have tither’s rights. Abraham tithed. Genesis 14:18-20. And it was after that that I promised him a son and the land that later I would give to his descendants.
Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you! Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,” says the LORD of hosts. “All the nations will call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land,” says the LORD of hosts. Malachi 3:9-12.
