Blessing as a form of empowerment
As we enter a new era of spiritual and material warfare, it is important that we deepen our understanding of the Blessing.
If it happens that you read the Bible, I strongly recommend that you investigate or query the reason for the order and the occurrence of certain events or things in the Bible.
In today’s post, I will discuss the relevance of the Blessing.
The Bible says:
"He created them male and female, and He blessed them and called them “human.” (Genesis 5:2).
When God created Adam and Eve, He blessed them at the beginning.
When God appeared to Abraham as in the first time mentioned in Genesis 12, God blessed him.
When Jesus was born, He was blessed with gifts from the Magi (reference Matthew 2).
The presence of the Blessing in the lives of many Bible heroes was a pillar of strength that gave them relevance during their times.
In Jewish tradition, the Blessing was considered as part of the inheritance that a man would leave to his children.
By being blessed by God, a person (regardless of his/her position in society) would be both empowered and relevant in society. Within the context of this post, relevance refers to the ability to have a positive influence.
It is also possible to be out of the Blessing.
In order to crush the children of God, one of the favorite tactic of the devil consists in:
- Pulling the children of God out of the blessing
- Or, keeping the children of God in the curse of lack
The reason why the devil wants humanity under a curse or away from the blessing is because it will weaken humanity. In the Garden of Eden, the enemy wanted the authority of men but he also wanted to solidify his plans by ensuring that Adam and Eve fall into a curse.
In Joel 2:28-29,the Bible says:
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days.”
The above passage is one of the most popular passages associated with the End times. Since we are in the End times, the above passage is linked to our time.
However, if you read carefully, you will notice that verse 28 starts with “And Afterward”.It also means that the promise in Joel 2:28-29 can only follow another passage in the same chapter.
Here is a question: “what precedes Joel 2:28-29?”
The passage of Joel 2:28-29 is preceded by the passage of Joel 2:19-27 where God promised a list of blessings. After those blessings comes the passage of Joel 2:28-29.
It is important that the church understands the mechanisms associated with the Blessing in view to be empowered.
In the context of our day and age characterized by global wars and economic crisis designed to usher the Antichrist, it is important that Christian live in the empowerment of the Blessing. However, if we don’t live in the Blessing empowerment, we may live at the mercy of rich unbelieving individuals who will use their wealth to dictate national policies that will usher the Antichrist.Furthermore, the next year will be characterized by severe economic crisis and it matters that Christians walk within the empowerment of blessings.’
Enter the Blessing.
