Ephesians 1:3 (KJ) – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:”
Last week we have established that GOD IS BLESSED and out of the BLESSED God flows the BLESSING-FAVOUR!
Let’s continue this week to determine WHAT the BLESSING-FAVOUR is.
2 Peter 1:2 (AMP.) – “May Grace (God’s Favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of JESUS our Lord.” It is really THAT simple.
The unmerited BLESSING-FAVOUR of God will flow like a mighty torrential River into every parched area of your life, be it your physical body, marriage, career, or your finances, WHEN YOU SEE JESUS! The more you increase in the knowledge of our loving Saviour JESUS CHRIST and His Finished work at the cross, the more God’s unmerited BLESSING-FAVOUR will be multiplied in your life. It is His unmerited BLESSING-FAVOUR that will cause you to enjoy success beyond your natural intelligence, qualifications and ability!
God’s BLESSING-FAVOUR is not just another topic. It’s not just another teaching. GOD’S UNMERITED BLESSING-FAVOUR IS THE GOSPEL! (Apostle Paul calls it THE GOSPEL in Gal.3:8)
The BLESSING-FAVOUR is a PERSON, AND HIS NAME IS JESUS! When you have Jesus, you have the BLESSING-FAVOUR! Jesus and the Blessing-Favour do not exist separately. The Blessing-Favour is EMBODIED in His entire being and in His finished work at Calvary.
Genesis 12:1-3 (AMP.) – “Now [in Haran] the Lord said to Abram, Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father’s house, to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will BLESS you [with abundant increase of FAVORS] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a BLESSING [dispensing good to others.] And I will BLESS those who BLESS you [who confer PROSPERITY or HAPINESS upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; IN YOU will all the families and kindred of the earth be BLESSED [and by you they will BLESS themselves].”
This is the initial BLESSING-FAVOUR spoken to Abram.
Notice the RESULT/EFFECT/FRUIT of THE BLESSING-FAVOUR:
Genesis 13:4 (AMP.) – “Now Abram was EXTREMELY RICH in livestock and in silver and gold.”
In Galatians 3: 6 – 9, 13 – 16 & 26 – 29 Paul reveals the Awesome truth that we Gentiles are now Abraham’s offspring and thus His Sons and spiritual heirs according to Promise THROUGH THE FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST JESUS ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY. This BLESSING-FAVOUR initially promised to Abraham now has come upon US, the Gentiles.
THE BLESSING-FAVOUR DEFINED:
Endowed Power for SUCCESSand PROSPERITY. In other words: the RESULT of the BLESSING-FAVOUR is PROSPERITY and SUCCESS. It means to be “ENDUED” = Fully dressed or clothed (“Dressed for SUCCESS”) It means: Something is being PUT ON YOU/SMEARED ON YOU. It’s a sign of special FAVOUR that’s intended to result in PROSPERITY and SUCCESS! The BLESSING-FAVOUR is the ABILITY FROM GOD’S VERY NATURE. It is God SUPERNATURALLY EMPOWERING or ENABLING you. His SUPER put/smeared on your NATURAL…that SUPER is called THE BLESSING-FAVOUR!
NOT “Blessings” – NO…”THE BLESSING-FAVOUR” Blessings are merely the effects of THE BLESSING-FAVOUR! The SUBSTANCE are greater than the effects. You MUST have a Revelation of the very NATURE of this word: “BLESSING-FAVOUR” Matthew 6:33 (AMP.) – “But seek (aim at and strife after) FIRST OF ALL HIS KINGDOM and His RIGHTEOUSNESS (His way of doing and being right), and then ALL THESE THINGS taken together will be given you besides.”
The BLESSING-FAVOUR are not the “things”…that’s only the EFFECTS/RESULTS/FRUIT of THE BLESSING-FAVOUR. “BLESSINGS” is what THE BLESSING-FAVOUR will cause and do…THE BLESSING-FAVOUR IS THE ROOT OF THE FRUIT…IT’S THE VERY SOURCE… it is JESUS HIMSELF! There’s something ON/IN YOU that causes and makes you to PROSPER and SUCCEED…That’s THE BLESSING-FAVOUR! The BLESSING-FAVOUR is the PATH to the “BLESSINGS”. The BLESSING-FAVOUR is the PATH to the “things” that you want that you don’t yet have. There’s a PATH to get out of debt. There’s a PATH to get 100% Healed. There’s a PATH to get delivered. THE BLESSING-FAVOUR is the PATH!
Deut. 8:17,18 (AMP.) – “And beware lest you say in your [mind and] heart, My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth. But you shall earnestly remember the Lord your God, for IT IS HE who gives you POWER to get wealth, that He may establish His Covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Also see: Proverbs 10:22 GOD GIVES YOU THE POWER…and that POWER gives you the ABILITY to get wealth. God is adding to your ability HIS ABILITY. It is what has come FROM HIM that gets you wealth. That ABILITY is called: THE BLESSING-FAVOUR! Don’t call the “things” THE BLESSING-FAVOUR”…NO… THE POWER/ABILITY IS THE BLESSING-FAVOUR!
What I GET is a result/effect/fruit of WHAT I ALLREADY HAVE…I HAVE THE BLESSING-FAVOUR!!!
