I know that you may think that this is not “Christian”; no! It is NOT! But the concept behind it IS!
Have you ever been blessed? Job, promotion, new house, family, understanding, wisdom, properties? Let us get basic! Brethren, Sistren, a Church, community…
I should once again ask if you have bee blessed?
1. Blessing and Cursing in the Structure of Genesis
We get an understanding of “Blessing”: blessings pronounced, blessing promised, blessing anticipated, and blessing experienced. We begin to get a sense of what it really means to be blessed in Numbers 6:22–27
“And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” ’
“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” Numbers 6:22–27
Are we ‘expectant’ of ‘blessings’? Some will think I said “Do we work for or do we ‘earn’ blessings?
We are given blessings – unearned, undeserved because we are of The Kingdom!
I was moved to point out yet again that all that is seen comes from the unseen! Just so that you do not think I made that up…
