TOPIC: Fulfilling God’s Condition for Blessing (Part 2)
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:Deuteronomy 19-21; Mark 13:21-37
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Deuteronomy 28:1-9
MEMORY VERSE: “And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:” – Genesis 14:19
Jesus made the Jewish religious people to understand that nothing about the sort of life they lived portrayed them as true children of Abraham. He told them that they were only fooling themselves. Abraham walked before the Lord with all diligence. He was a man of a qualitative character, a man of faith, a man of brokenness. Since the blessings of Abraham are meant for him and his true children, Jesus told them that there was nothing from Abraham for them. He reminded them that the children’s meat was not meant to be given to dogs.
The true children of Abraham are as many as are saved by the blood of Jesus and only such can inherit the blessings of Abraham. Children of Abraham are genuine Christians who are sure of Heaven at any time. Are you?
Abraham’s blessing would be yours if you are doing the following things:
First, if you surrender and obey. The beginning of Abraham’s obedience brought God’s promises to fulfilment in his life as recorded in our Memory Verse. The Bible says “… So Abraham departed as the Lord has spoken unto him.” If you will not fear, if you trust God, if you do not give up, if you do not seek human permission, if you can hear Him! Child of God, do you hear your Father? (John 10:3-4). There is nothing bad when He speaks through someone to you, but there is everything bad if you never hear Him speak to you at all, not even over critical matters. You need to be faith-lifted. You need to be selfless and loving. You need to be kind and hospitable. You need to let Him comfort you. You need to walk before Him in perfection. You need to keep His covenant. Have you made a covenant with God? Then keep it. You need to forgive. Forgiveness goes a long way in bringing your blessing to you. We are heirs with Christ because God forgave us, and there is no blessing that is greater than this. We should also not find it so difficult to forgive others. If you will give, start giving because givers never lack. God gave His very best. Jesus is His all from the very beginning and He is the wholeness of God, yet He gave Him up. That’s what love is all about. That’s what loving God should be for us. Giving all we have and are entirely to Him. If you seek Him, don’t ever stop seeking Him. Don’t ever get too familiar with Him. You also need to serve God and others and sacrifice. Doing all of these and more would automatically usher you into great blessings.
THE POWER TO FULFIL GOD’S CONDITIONS FOR BLESSING IS AVAILABLE AT THE THRONE OF GRACE.
