Blessing of Abraham

“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3)

God’s original plan for mankind was to be blessed. In fact, the very first thing that God did after he created Adam and Eve was pronounce His blessing upon them and declare that they be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:28). This blessing was not simply a command, but a supernatural ability to prosper and be fruitful in whatever they set their hands to. Their work was a joy, and with very little effort they produced much result, and everything just seemed to “work out for them.” But suddenly, all that changed.

Most of us, of course, know the story; Adam and Eve disobeyed God and brought a curse into the earth, and everything that was good reversed course. The curse became “genetically inbred” into the world, if you will, and because of disobedience, all creation took upon itself the bondage of corruption. What was once wholesome and good suddenly morphed into a twisted and perverted shadow of what once was (Romans 8:21).

The root of all physical matter is the Word of God (Hebrews 1:3, 11:3, Colossians 1:17, John 1:3), it upholds the very tiniest of sub atomic particles, and consequently defines their conduct. In this world, it dictates the course of events according to the curse, as was spoken of by God in the Garden of Eden, and formally given through Moses in the form of the law (Deuteronomy 27:26, Galatians 3:10). The curse of the law currently remains in effect and active, unless it is redirected by faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

With these things in mind then, it is evident that since all things are framed, upheld and consist by the Word of God, that all things are therefore subject to the same Word. The Word of God spoken out of our mouths, declaring the blessing of Abraham through Jesus Christ!

When I was in flight school, we were taught a principle called positive static stability, which is the inherent tendency of an object in motion to oscillate back to its original path and attitude if interrupted or disturbed by an outside force. It could be said that the world that we live in has positive static stability in regard to the curse, and must be redirected by our faith, and held in place to line up with the blessing.

Satan will tell you that your confession and declaration of faith won’t work; he will tell you these things are foolishness, but don’t believe it! Things may not change overnight, but the declaration
of God’s Word will begin to change the problem from the root (Mark 11:20), and cause events and circumstances to line up with God’s will and plan for your life!

Does this mean we will float through life on a bed of ease? If anyone believes this, they are in for very a rude awakening! The determination for nothing short of complete victory must be firmly settled from the beginning, as Satan will do everything he can to stop us; he will lie to us and use the pressure of persecutions, afflictions, cares of this world, deceitfulness of riches, and lusts of other things in order to steal the Word from our hearts and out of our mouths. (Mark 4:14-20)

Joshua tells us not to let the Word of God depart from our mouths, but that we should meditate therein day and night, that then we would make our way prosperous, and have good success (Joshua 1:8). If God has given a dream or a promise, then we must begin to declare it done, until it’s done! (Romans 4:17) Well, how much faith do I need to move a mountain?” You may ask. The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart several years ago, and said, “If you have enough faith to do it (speak and declare the promises of God), then it is enough faith to move the mountain!” This is accurate according to scripture, for we demonstrate our faith by what we actually do! (James 2:18, Revelation 20:12-13)

A person that does not believe will not do it! They will hear these things preached, and they will go their way and dismiss them. We may not think we believe at times, but if we will just do it, and continue to do it (Hebrews 6:12), then eventually it will get down on the inside of us, and enable God to move on our behalf! (II Peter 1:19)
