Gen 22:15-18 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, 16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son— 17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
Gal 3:14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Many receive blessings; whether it is from the Lord or general mercy of our God or a blessing from the devil to deceive, it is hard to differentiate. How can we differentiate whether we received God’s blessing according to His providence plan? God’s blessing is eternal and for His eternal purpose. Other blessings including Satan’s deceit is temporal. Any blessing that is not received through Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and obeying to the Holy Spirit is temporal and earthly. It cannot pass into eternal realm. Abraham was blessed by God’s blessing abundantly when he obeyed the ‘Voice of God’ through the faith in the everlasting God. He received this promise as a blessing ‘In your seed all the nation will be blessed’. By this blessing, we all today inherit the kingdom of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. This blessing is eternal and of unimaginable proportion. The blessing of God even on earthly things will have its fruit yielded to eternal. Would you be interested in God’s eternal blessing or will you be satisfied with the temporal blessing? Ask your heart and you will know whether you received the blessing by obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit who is speaking in you, in faith.
