I refer to the Old Testament as the "if and then" era. "If and then" because the blessings of God could only be obtained by meeting certain conditions. If you did this or that, then you were blessed, and if you didn't, then you were cursed. The curse was a result of disobedience to the Law.
Sadly many preachers are still preaching the message of the Old Testament. We must come to understand that today, we do not inherit God's blessings as a result of what we do; in fact, God already blessed us long before we contemplated giving Him our lives! He has already blessed us with all spiritual blessings and given us all that pertain to life and godliness; so which other one are you working for? Do God's word because you love Him and because it is true, not because you want something in return!
Galatians 3:13-14 reveals that Christ HAS redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, that the blessing of Abraham might come upon us. Hallelujah! We are products of faith, therefore, we are blessed with Abraham.
The door has been opened; the obstacles have been removed; Jesus has suffered for our disobedience, no need to suffer again! You've got to wake up you sleeping believer and demand for what's already yours in Christ! Blessed are you in the city, and blessed are you in the country; blessed are you when you come in and when you go out; anyone who rises against you will be defeated before your face; all you set your hand to do shall be blessed, blessed shall you be in the land which the Lord has given you! Amen.
