“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.”
We understand from previous messages that God is a God of the covenant and his blessings are conditional. Unless someone fulfills the conditions, he or she cannot enjoy the blessings of God in fullness.
Many started this Christian race well but did not finish well.
Many are serving God faithfully to the best of their own knowledge but are not enjoying the blessings of God.
You must know that in heaven there is the law of obedience before you can enjoy the blessings of God.
There is nothing you can do to please God than to pass the test of obedience
There is no battle of life that can overcome a Christian that passes the school of obedience. Satan ensured that the first people on earth (Adam and Eve) failed the test of obedience.
When they failed the test lost all the blessings. They lost the garden of Eden, they lost fellowship with God, fear entered their life and they began to run when no one was pursuing them, they became naked… Anyone that becomes naked is disgraced.
Satan succeeded in taking away what God gave to them.
God gave Adam and Eve dominion over all things. But it came to a point when they see lion, they began to run, serpent and other animals, they run.
When a man’s destiny is exposed, all satanic powers can attack such destiny. Any arrow can prosper, spiritually armed robbers can attack.
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:”
If you want this God to be your God, you must enter into the covenant of obedience with him.
You need to read the whole of Deuteronomy 28 in order to really understand God.
There is a benefit for them that obey God. This is his blessings.
There is also a benefit for them that disobey God. That is his curses.
There are many Churches that show people only one side of God and this has led many into destruction. They only show people God is a God of Mercy. They don’t show people that God is a God the Judges.
They only show people God is a God that blesses. They don’t show people that God is a God that curses.
If anyone knowingly or unknowingly disobeys God, that person will attract curses from God.
The Bible says, “if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments”
This means we don’t have the opportunity to choose which law to obey or not obey.
We need to obey God with the understanding of who he is. We need to follow God faithfully.
To observe and to do means to pay attention and to be watchful.
You don’t walk with God anyhow, dress before him anyhow, and come to him anyhow.
God is a God of principles. You don’t serve God according to your own times but according to the times of God.
You don’t choose for God. It is God that chooses for you.
The Bible says, “that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:”
Before God will set you above your colleagues, there are conditions.
Before God will set you above your competitors, there are conditions.
Before God will set you above all principalities, there are conditions.
This condition is to obey the commandment of God. In our relationship with God, prayer and fasting are not number one.
Number one is obedience.
If you disobey God, you will gain spiritual attacks, failure, disappointment, untimely death and all manner of curses.
Anyone that chooses to disobey God has chosen to reject his blessings.
If all the blessings are for the Children of God, why are some people poor and live miserable lives? It is disobedience.
There is no one that God cannot help, but when you disobey God, you reject his help. There will be a lack of favor in such a life.
When there is a favour in the life of a person, there will be an abundance of blessings.
Until you understand the covenant of God, you cannot understand God and enjoy his blessings.
Obedience to God and disobedience to God is a choice.
All blessings to God are attached to obedience.
All curses are attached to disobedience.
You cannot love the blessings of God and hate obedience to God.
Adam and Eve were not born by humans. They were created by God himself.
If God did not spare them when they disobeyed, who is deceiving you that God will spare you when you disobey.
Apostle Paul says, “…Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid….”
The Bible says, “Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.”
This means wherever you are, you will be blessed. Your location is not what will determine your blessing.
Genesis 26:1-3, 12-14 gave accounts of how God blessed Jacob in the land of famine.
“And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.
And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
Sojourn in this land and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year a hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.
And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.”
When you chose a life of obedience, the economy of the world will not determine your blessing, and you will not live by the budget of the earth but the budget of heaven.
He is the God that brings water out of the rock.
He is the God that blesses you beyond measure.
He is the God that owns heaven and earth and can give you any portion that nobody can challenge.
He does not need anyone to help him.
There are blessings, but there are blessings that nobody can attack. This is the blessings of obedience.
There are blessings that anybody can attack but anyone that fights the blessings of obedience shall die.
The three Hebrew boys were thrown into the fire but because they chose to obey God, they were not burnt, rather the people who threw them in died. The same happened with Daniel, the lion became his friend.
Satan knows that when you decide to live a life of obedience he cannot attack you. So he does everything for you to disobey God.
When you enter into the covenant of obedience, no child will come out of you and will become a curse or burden.
Whatever you touch will be blessed.
Wherever you go, you will be blessed.
Anything you do shall be blessed.
You cannot be a blessing and be ignored.
- Whatever you touch will be blessed.
- Wherever you go, you will be blessed.
- Anything you do shall be blessed.
- You cannot be a blessing and be ignored.
Joseph entered Egypt as a slave but was holding the keys of all that his master has. Even in prison, he became a leader. If anyone can inherit a covenant of blessings, then somebody can also inherit a covenant of curses. What did you inherit from your father? This means you can suffer for the sin they have committed. If you acquire, inherit, or purchase a company with a profit then you can enjoy the profit. In the same way, if you acquire, inherit, or purchase a company with loss, you will suffer for that loss. That is why deliverance is necessary after salvation. You need deliverance to break every inherited covenant curses.
