BLESSINGS AND MIRACLES
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” Ephesians 1:3 KJV
This is the second capsule in this series BLESSINGS and MIRACLES. I would concede that this is not a catchy title, however my intention is to show you the difference between the two and lead you into God's best by proper application. In the introduction, I gave some working definitions. I would advise you to go through again. In brief, a Blessing is designed to enhance the natural laws, making them work better to your benefit. On the other hand, Miracles of necessity require the suspension of these natural laws. For some reason most people can identify a curse (the opposite of blessing) when in operation, the natural laws just refuse to produce (Genesis 3:17-19).
“The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.” Deut. 28:12 KJV (In context Verses 2-13)
Deuteronomy 28:12 gives a graphic example of how a blessing works, I call it the dynamics. See how the natural law is enhanced. God opens up His good treasure causing the Rain to fall at the right time on your land, ( the most appropriate time, not too early or too late), to bless the WORK OF YOUR HAND. The result is that you will then have so much abundance that you be able to lend out to others. Simply put, when this blessing is in operation, it makes you get an unusual high yield or reward for your effort. What this means is that those who refuse to work, despite being blessed would not receive this abundance. The reason is simple, they have either knowing or unknowingly refused to COOPERATE with this blessing (I would explain this later in the series). By refusing to work, you are actively working against this blessing, making it dormant instead of active (I really pray you grasp this).
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” Ephesians 1:3 KJV
For the New Creation or New Covenant, unlike in the Old Covenant we are blessed all around, in every facet and aspect of life, I call it 360 degrees. Christ by His redemptive work is the guarantor (Hebrews 7:24-25). Every aspect of our life is supposed to reflect maximum yield, from your health to your wealth. This includes soundness of mind because you are free from the condemnation of sin and free from demonic control (Romans 8:1, Luke 10:19, Mark 16:17-18), walk in divine health and healing (3John 1:2, Romans 8:11, 1Peter 2:24), have so much abundance that we abound to every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8, Philippians 4:19, Psalms 35:27). God has catered for every aspect with blessings, making sure the laws of nature yield maximally, what we need to do is cooperate!. The fact that we are not experiencing it does not mean God has not made the provision......“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” 2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV. Again, I remind you that these natural laws were put in place by God from the very foundation of Creation, and God Himself describes their working as very good (Genesis 1:31). Not only that, He has set them in perpetuity for as long as the Earth remains (Genesis 8:22). This is God's first and preferred pattern.
The logical question then is, 'Why Miracles? Why does God suspend these natural laws on occasions to achieve His desired end?' (This might shock you, but give it serious consideration). God introduced Miracles because of Sin or the Fall and indirectly because of ignorance. Sin introduced perversion or evil into the world, such that it takes a Miracle (suspension of natural laws) on some occasions to stop the consequence of evil in its tracks. Secondly, ignorance could lead to unintended consequences except there is intervention in the form of Miracle. Miracles in a way recalibrate things and reinstate the equilibrium. (I am painting with broad strokes for now, in subsequent capsules we will go into details). The overriding nature of God is Love, that is the reason we have Miracles to stop evil and ignorance taking hold and wreaking havoc or subverting the ultimate goal of God (Jeremiah 29:11). I know that this might offend the established and conventional theology, but it is true and I intend to provide strong evidence in this series. Once you get it, it makes the Christian life so much better. You are no longer prey to the current fad or popular thoughts, you will wake up every morning full of vigour knowing the seed of the blessing to overcome all is already in you.
I will like to end this capsule with this cautionary note. Which ever way God brings deliverance I will take it and I encourage you to do the same. You will never get to the point where you will outgrow the need for a Miracle, it is important to note that. Nobody knows it all, we are all at different stages in our Christian walk, thank God for Miracles.
Thank God for Miracles but learn to cooperate with BLESSINGS
I am really excited about this series, I believe somebody is about to be set free from the clutches of evil trend into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. This is not for the mainstream, it will challenge every sinew and fabric of what you think you know. I believe God will give you understanding
