My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above context we learn that the law of God is perfect, but the penalty for breaking any part of Gods, law, however, insignificant it may be in our sight leads to death—eternal separation from God. The Bible says, All have sinned and all have fallen short of the glory and perfection of God. And the wages of sin is death. But God in His grace ordained that the curse of the law can be lifted only through the sacrifice of His dearly Beloved Son.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, there is nothing, that we can do, to redeem ourselves from the penalty of sin and be set free from the curse of the Law. And there is nothing that we can add to the price that Jesus paid on the cross. Only God Himself in the Person of Jesus Christ is able to redeem us, and He did this by dying on a tree and becoming a curse in our place. And the price that Christ paid is sufficient.
It was Moses who wrote that the penalty for condemned criminals was to hang upon a tree, as a sign that they were cursed of God, and by being lifted up and hung on Calvary’s Tree, Christ was made a curse for us. During the journey in the wilderness the people of Israel spoke against God and Moses. So the Lord sent fiery serpents, to bite them. And many people died. Then they repented of their wrong doings, and asked Moses to pray to the Lord, to take away the serpents from them. Then God told, Moses to erect a bronze serpent on a pole, and so it was, if anyone was bitten by the serpent, when he looked at the bronze serpent he lived. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so Jesus was lifted up on the cross of Calvary, that whoever believed on him should be saved.
Christ redeemed us by dying in our place and the wrath of God was poured out upon Jesus to pay the price for your sins and that of mine, instead of God’s wrath being poured out on you and on me. And without the death of the holy Son of God there could be no redemption from the terrible curse . The curse of Law is death, but Christ paid the price in our stead.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, God doesn’t want you to live in curse. God wants you to live a blessed life hence, He Himself became a curse and hung on the cross. No curse shall follow you. God will make you stand before all those people who cursed you. God says, He is pleased and loves to bless Israel. He will bless you and give you all the blessings that you are lacking. God will do as He says. He will surely bless you. It is not God’s will to see you getting destroyed or being in bondage or in any captivity. He wants you to inherit all the blessings of Abraham, and live a blessed life. The Bible says, the blessing of the Lord is upon the righteous. The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it. For until this time you have suffered sufficiently. God is bringing an end to all your sufferings.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from today God will bless you and settle all your debts and make you free from all your financial crisis. He will help you to secure a good job and help you earn a better income. May be all these years you were looking out for a life partner but nothing seemed to work but surely your hope will not be cut of, for there is a hereafter. God will provide you with a good life partner. And for those of you who are anxiously waiting for the gift of a child, may have tried all methods but because, you were under some bondage you were unable to beget a child. But now God is removing your curse and blessing you with a beautiful child. May be until now you didn’t do well in your studies, but in future you will excel in your studies and have a bright future. God will put an end to all your problems and He will give His strength to overcome all your troubles. He will change your curse into a blessing. God bless you.
Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for changing the curse into blessing by dying on the cruel cross. Lord thank you for protecting us from the hand of the enemy, Satan. Thank you for settling all our problems. Lord we thank you for lifting up our heads before others. Bless Israel in all his ways. In Jesus Name we pray,
