KEY SCRIPTURE: Genesis 22:18 “And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”
What does the blessings of Abraham entail? Before we go into the details of some of the blessings of Abraham, I wish that you make up your mind that you will walk in these blessings for they are true, real and very compelling.
Please listen to what the Spirit said in Galatians 3:17 “And this I say that the covenant that was confirmed before of (by) God in Christ, the law which was four hundred and thirty years after cannot disannul (render in effective) that it should make the promise of none effect”.
What the above scripture means is that, the Abrahamic covenant has been confirmed by God in Christ, and as a result the law which came into effect 430 years later cannot render it ineffective.
Some of the blessings of Abraham found in Genesis 12:1-3, 17 :2-3, 22:17–18 are as follows
- Multiplication of seed as sand of the seashore and the stars of heaven. Fruitfulness is your package.
- Every seed of Abraham shall possess the gates of their enemies.
- All nations shall be blessed
- All who bless you are blessed, and all who curse you are cursed.
- Make thee a great nation and make thy name great.
(Note: Whatever was said to Abraham is said to you.)
A woman whom the Lord declared to be loosed from her bondage in Luke 13 was met by the displeasure of the ruler of the synagogue; who said she should come for healing on another day, and not the Sabbath day. The Lord answered and him and said “And ought not this woman being a daughter of Abraham whom Satan has bound lo these eighteen years be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day “ Luke 13:16. The Lord implied that because she is a daughter of Abraham and benefactor of the blessings of Abraham she must not continue to suffer. Today decide to be free from anything that is holding you captive and bound. You are a daughter or a son of Abraham and you must be free.
Among the blessings of Abraham the bible said the seed of Abraham shall possess the gates of their enemies. The word possess is translated from a Hebrew word “yarash” which means to seize, dispossess, take possession off, inherit, disinherit or occupy. This is very refreshing. It implies no enemy should overcome you. If you will take your stand on the word, no enemy will ever overpower you. We have also been blessed with greatness and riches of Abraham.
Galatians 3:9 reads “So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. God blesses us because we believe His word and honour Him. Claim these blessings on the bases of your place in Christ.
I am a son or a daughter of Abraham. I am blessed alongside faithful Abraham. I possess the gates of my enemies, I am exceedingly fruitful, and my impact is felt by all men for He has made me very great.
Genesis 12:2 “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”
Galatians 3:29 “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”.
