Last week we studied Abraham’s Blessing and discovered that EVERY Born-again believer in Christ is an heir, and that it includes having Financial Blessings.
Now let’s continue…
What else does it mean to be an heir of the world?
What other blessings did Abraham receive?
The Blessing- Favour includes Health and Renewal of Youth
We know that Abraham was wealthy and strong, and so was Sarah, his wife. The Lord renewed their youth so dramatically that when Abraham was about 100 years old and Sarah about 90, Sarah conceived Isaac after many years of barrenness.
When God blesses, His blessings include fruitfulness in childbearing. Isaac was proof that the blessing they experienced was physical as well. As an heir of the world, the Lord will likewise cause you to be strong and healthy.
It is not possible to be an heir of the world if you are constantly fatigued, sick and flat on your back. God will make you healthy and keep you in divine health in Jesus’ name!
The Bible calls every female believer a daughter of Sarah. There were many other women of faith in the Bible, such as Ruth and Esther. So why didn’t God choose to refer to female believers as daughters of Ruth or daughters of Esther? Sarah was the only woman in the Bible who had her youth renewed in her old age.
The Lord calls you daughters of Sarah. You can trust the Lord to renew your youth as He did for Sarah!
God’s Word promises a renewal of your youth and strength. There are 2 passages in the Bible that you need to read for yourself:
Psalm 103:1-5 says: “Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s”.
Isaiah 40:31 – “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagle’s, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint”.
There is no such thing as a “prosperity gospel”. There is only the gospel of Jesus Christ. And Paul calls that Gospel – “THE BLESSING-FAVOUR” When you have Jesus and depend on His unmerited favour, all these blessings are added to you. What would you rather I preach about? That God wants you to remain sick and poor? Imagine going to your unbelieving friends and telling them, “Hey, God wants you to be sick and poor. Do you want to be a Christian?” Their response would be, “No thanks, I have enough problems on my own now!”
It is not God’s plan for you to be sick. Sickness, viruses and diseases are not from Him, and He would certainly not put sickness on you to teach you a lesson, any more than you would put sickness on your children to teach them a lesson! Be very clear that God does not and will not discipline you with sicknesses, accidents and diseases.
Look at the 4 Gospels. What happened every time Jesus came in contact with a sick person? The sick person got healed! You will never find Jesus going up to a perfectly healthy person saying, “I want to teach you a lesson on humility and patience. Now, receive some leprosy!” No way! Yet, that is basically what some people are saying about our Lord today.
Jesus wants to bless you with more than enough so that you can be a blessing to others.
Why is it then, that there aren’t more new covenant believers, the spiritual seed of Abraham, experiencing the full blessing of Abraham? The answer is found in Romans 4:13-16, which says:
“For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression. Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace (unmerited favour), so that the promise might be sure to all the seed…”
The Blessing-Favour of Abraham for the new covenant believer is made void and of no effect when you try to earn and deserve it through your efforts. Hence, the secret to walking in the Blessing-Favour of Abraham in your life is to stop trying to deserve it. Instead, exercise your faith to believe that you are righteous through Jesus’ finished work. The more righteousness-conscious you are, the more blessing you will experience. Begin to experience the Abrahamic Blessing of being an heir of the world today, trusting entirely on God’s unmerited favour in your life!
IT IS DONE!
The Greatest Revelation is “the FINISHED WORK of JESUS CHRIST on the CROSS OF CALVARY!!!”
You are already BLESSED and HIGHLY FAVOURED of God!!!
NOW, start to WALK and LIVE in the FULLNESS of the BLESSING-FAVOUR of God!
