Are You Under a Curse or a Blessing? #law #grace

You place yourself under a curse if you insist that in order to please or obey God, you MUST do a certain thing, a particular way ALL THE TIME; that you MUST rigidly follow a particular practice through just one method or one way, leaving no room for flexibility. This is a curse because it shuts out spirit. You cannot place the indwelling spirit of our Heavenly Father in a box. You cannot place a strict limit on God. Such a posture drives out divine influences and divine spiritual manifestations. 

When you understand these things, you will begin to appreciate why Jesus did not insist that it is a MUST for people to do this or do that: for example, that it is a MUST to be circumcised; a MUST to give tithes; a MUST to give your entire income of the first month (by the way, the law of Moses didn't even demand the entire income of the first month); a MUST not to wear earrings; a MUST for opposite sexes not to shake hands or exchange hugs, etc, etc. The New and Living Way established and promoted by Jesus Christ did not say, "It is a MUST". Instead it says, "Walk in love." Do all in love as you are led by the spirit from within. It teaches a life that communes with the Father intimately and follows the "divine leading" of the Heavenly Father.

This is a key reason why Paul rightly said in Galatians 5:4, "You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace." It is not possible to walk by FAITH and JUSTIFICATION if you put yourself under the yoke of, "a set pattern", which is what "the law" does. Also, you cannot implement one or two laws and leave out the others. You must implement ALL. Please, see Galatians 5:3, "And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law." And also, Galatians 3:10, "For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”"

Frankly and sincerely, it is not possible to do ALL things written in the book of the law. From the get go, it was designed to put people in bondage. Even if you succeed in implementing all, you will end up in a very severe and terrible bondage. You will shut out the leading of God from your life. You will turn off the Still Small Voice within you. If you place yourself under the law, you cannot successfully walk by faith and great love.

In the New Covenant in Christ Jesus, we are admonished and encouraged to give money or material goods in accordance with what we have been blessed with and to do so cheerfully (lovingly). Let the indwelling spirit of the Father lead you. That’s it. However, do you wish to tithe? Then do it cheerfully and never make it "A LAW" in your life. Even with the tithe, let the spirit lead you as to when, how and to whom to disburse it. Do you wish to give first fruits? Again, the principle is the same. But if you make these things a law, you remove yourself from the blessings of grace; from the blessings of being led by the spirit; from the advantages of “doing things in different ways as opposed to strictly and rigidly following a set pattern”. You may unknowingly invite curses into your life, as explained above.

Be led by the spirit. You are under grace not the law. You are under the anointing of faith that works by love not religious laws. For example, the spirit of God the Father within you can say to you, “I know you are in the habit of taking a tithe to your local Church. However, this month, I want you to take that 10% and give it to your Aunt who is going through a financial crisis.” Bear in mind, in the kingdom of God, you are not chained down by a strictly rigid way of doing things! So, would you acknowledge that as God’s voice or would you rebuke it, “I rebuke the devil in Jesus’ name.” Deep speaks unto deep!

Please, understand that you are to live a life of liberty, obeying the law of the "Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus", the law of "Faith that works by love". (Please, see Galatians 5:6). This is the perfect law of liberty, the law of love (James 1:25-27). Be guided by the divine love not religious laws. Be led from within you!
The heavenly Father’s perfect law is in your mind, and it is written on your heart (Jeremiah 31:33). What you need to do is to “activate” a real, living and powerful personal relationship with Him. We need to come to a very high place of deep intimacy with the Father in order to understand and walk in the reality of these things. Amen. This is the all powerful domain of the realities of the New Creation “in Christ”. May God Almighty bless us! Hallelujah! Hosanna in the Highest!
