“The Curse – 101”…Blog.

“The Curse – 101”…Blog.

What a heavy subject… to handle today! No one wants to be cursed at… nor have one given to them. But did you know this… ‘Earth’… is cursed for the disobedient actions of the parents of the human race… “Adam & Eve?” Their simple act of disobedience brought… “The Curse”… to all of mankind and creation.

(Genesis 3:16-to-19) To the woman He [God] said, = I will greatly increase your sorrow = and = your conception. = In pain you shall bear sons, = and = your desire shall be toward your husband, = and = he shall rule over you.
(Gen 3:17) And to Adam = He [God] said, = Because you = have listened to the voice of your wife = and = have eaten of the tree, = of which I commanded you, = saying, = You shall not eat of it! = The ground = is cursed for your sake. = In pain shall you eat of it = all the days of your life.
(Gen 3:18) It shall also bring forth thorns = and = thistles to you, = and = you shall eat the herb of the field.
(Gen 3:19) In the sweat of your face = you shall eat bread = until = you return to the ground, = for out of it you were taken. = For dust you are, = and = to dust you shall return.

All Sickness, Pain and Suffering… is a direct result of the “Disobedience of Adam & Eve”. So too we… inherit their Curse. Ever wonder why there is so little… ‘Peace in this World’… and so much Turmoil? All this is a direct result of “Disobedience to God”. The sickness and old age that we all will suffer is… simply reaping what our ‘Human Parents’ did.

(Romans 5:12) Therefore, = just as sin = entered the world = through one man, = and = death through sin, = so death = spread to everyone, = because = all have sinned.

But there is “Good News”…! God has made a provision for mankind in providing a ‘Redeemer Savior’… “Christ Jesus”… the God Man that died and rise again for our… “Sin/Sins!” We need Him… because of the root of sin… in each and every one of our… ‘heats and lives.

(Romans 5:8) But = God = demonstrates His love = for us = by the fact that = Christ = died for us = while we were = still sinners.

(1Corinthains 5:7) Therefore = purge out the old leaven = so that you = may be a new lump, = as you are unleavened. = For also = Christ our Passover = is sacrificed for us.

This “Redeemer is pictured”… in the ‘Passover Sacrifice’ of the OT writings. God’s people, The Jews, were given the Law by God through Moses. They rebelled against God… and did not keep His Law, His Precepts, His Testimonies and His Statutes. And yet they were chosen by God… to be a witness to the World that… “God Loves Mankind!” This Grace is offered to Everyone… and… “Rejected by Most!” How about You… what have You done with this Grace…?

(2Chronicles 6:6) But now I [God] = have chosen Jerusalem, = so that = My Name = might be there, = and = now I have chosen David = to be over = My people = Israel.

Why else would… there be such a... “Hatred for Israel” and the Jews, God’s People? Satan led the angelic rebellion and this rebellion continues in the human rebellion against God and His People! But what is this hatred all about? It is the hatred for God and for the Authority of His Word and… and for All those that are… “Redeemed by Christ Jesus”. I thought that the Jews were God’s chosen people? Yes… but Not All!

(Romans 9:6-7-8) Now = it is not = as though = the Word of God = has failed. = For = not all Israelites = truly belong to Israel,
(Rom 9:7) And not all = of Abraham's descendants = are his True descendants. = On the contrary, = "It is through Isaac = that descendants will be named for you."
(Rom 9:8) That is, = it is not the children of natural descent = who are God's children, = but it is the children = of the promise = who are regarded as descendants.

Wow! Do you understand That…? Human lineage or decent does ‘NOT’ make one a “Child of God!” It is for the one… that accepts by Faith… “The promise of Redemption in the Finished Work of Christ”… as the “Scriptures have Promised!” That is why… ‘So Very Many’… Do Not… believe The Bible and Its Promises of the… “Savior and Lord”… of all Mankind! The “Rejection” of these Facts… causes hatred for the Jews and the Word of God. One cannot say they… Love God… and then Hate His Word… and Hate the Jews!

IF ‘You’ do not Love… “The Bible”…. THEN… You are ‘Not’… a child of God! Plain and simple isn’t it. God gave “His Word” to… ‘His Children’… so that they may know… “The Mind of God!” Without that… “One will simply rely on their ‘human experience’ of Religion”… and not on God and His Word… “The Bible!” This can be tested simply by YOU… substituting your “Experiences”… for what God… has already said in… “His Word”.

The Identical Rebellion… that Adam & Eve had towards God and His commands to them… is the… “Identical Rebellion”… that “ONE”, will have against the “Complete Authority of God’s Word!” Say it isn’t so…? Do you… “Read & Study”… the Word of God… to know the “Mind and Heart of God?” If You… do ‘Not’… then You do not… Love God! See… “John 15:9-10…!”

(Isaiah 55:8-9) For = My thoughts = are not = your thoughts, = nor = your ways = My ways, = says Jehovah [God].
(Isa 55:9) For as = the heavens = are higher than the earth, = so are = My ways = higher than = your ways, = and = My thoughts = than your thoughts.

(Psalms 25:12-13-14) What man is he = who fears Jehovah? = He = shall teach him = in the way = that he shall choose.
(Psalms 25:13) His soul = shall dwell at ease; = and = his seed shall inherit = the earth.
(Psalms 25:14) The secret = of Jehovah = is with those = who fear Him; = and = He will show them = His covenant.

In these Verses… it is plain to see that “MANY”… that say they ‘Know God’… and “Do Not”… know His Word… “Really… ‘Do Not’… Know God!” I have had many profess to me that they “Knew God”… and had done so for Many Years… and yet knew… “Nothing about Him or His Word” or even how He Works… with Mankind! Simply See… “Deuteronomy 29:29!” Do you know… “The Secrets of God?”

About now… there are ‘Some’… that will simply write me off! They will say that I have a critical spirit or that I am legalistic. I have made the statement… “IF you do not Love the Bible… then You Do Not Love… GOD!” How else would You… “Know God?” Surely… Not through Religion! Surely… Not through your Church! YOU have to Learn about God… From His Word, The Bible! That is why He… gave us this pattern… “Percept upon Precept!”

(Isaiah 28:13) But = the Word of Jehovah = was to them = precept on precept, = precept on precept; = line on line, = line on line; = here a little, = there a little; = that they might go, = and = fall backward, = and = be broken = and = snared = and taken.

The Hatred for ‘The Word of God’… goes way beyond… “Religion”. Each and every one of us will stand before God… and… give an account of every aspect of our lives! Most do not want to accept this… “FACT”… but the Word of God… “Bears it Out!” When shown… the Word of God… ONE… Will = “Either REPENT”… or = Will… “Harden their Heart”… against God… and His Word! Do you Not… believe Me? Simply see… “Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 & John 12:44-to-50!”

Adam & Eves Rebellion… against God and His Word… has been passed on to each of US! The hatred for “God’s Word”… is taken away by the “Holy Spirit”… when we are ‘Born Again!’ We then have “God’s Holy Spirit”… indwelling Us for Eternity! Never… to leave us to ourselves ‘Again’. But we can… “Grieve”… the Holy Spirit of God… by our Rebellion against His Word.

(Ephesians 4:30) And = do not = Grieve = the Holy Spirit of God, = by Whom = you are sealed = until = the day of redemption.

(Hebrews 3:13-14-15) But exhort = one another = daily, = while it is called = today, = lest any of you = be hardened = through the deceitfulness = of sin.
(Heb 3:14) For we = are made partakers = of Christ, = if = we hold = the beginning of our confidence = steadfast = to the end,
(Heb 3:15) while it is written, = "Today = if you will hear = His voice [Word], = harden not = your hearts, = as in the provocation."

Ok so what IF… I have been in this condition… for some time… after I have trusted in the Finished Work of Christ? Where do I go from… Here? Perhaps open your Bible… and read out loud… “1John 1:5-to-10!” Then… “Obey”… what the Scripture says. Simple isn’t…? Suppose that I have these doubts Again…? Well then turn to… “Hebrews 9:14”… and read it out loud!

You will then… begin to understand… the “Mind of God”… which ‘ONLY’ comes from His Word! Satan does not want you to… “Read & Study & Learn”… the Word of God! Remember during the temptation of Christ Jesus after He had fasted 40-days… the devil temped Him. But He responded… “It is Written…!” [Matt 4:4 & Luke 4:4] You too, will learn… the Word of God… and then be able to say… “It is Written…!”

Suppose I do not… believe what you have said here in this Blog? Well then, you have given up … just as the Jews did in the OT. ‘Many’… rejected God’s Word… Over and Over and Over Again! Simply Read = Isaiah, Jeremiah and Many of the OT Prophets. They came to the Jews… again and again… with the “Word of The Lord”… and were… “Rejected!” God’s Mercy and Love… was No Longer, extended to Them…!

(Jeremiah 7:16-17) Therefore = do not = pray for this people, = nor = lift up cry = nor prayer = for them, = nor make intercession to Me [God]; = for I = will not hear = you.
(Jer 7:17) Do you not see = what they do = in the cities of Judah = and = in the streets = of Jerusalem?

(Amos 8:11) Behold, = the days come, = says the Lord Jehovah, = that I = will send = = a famine = = in the land; = not a famine of bread = nor = a thirst for water, = = but of hearing = = the Words of Jehovah.

Perhaps NOW… is the time to… ‘Confess and Forsake’… your ways and take “God’s Word”… as your “Only”… point of reference? If you have read all the way through this blog… then your heart is still open to God and to His Word! I would PLEAD… with YOU! Turn to God and His Word… as your only point of reference! Forget Your Religion…! The same Rejection of the Word… that happened to “Israel”… has happened to… ‘Many’ today… that call themselves… “Christians!”

(Proverbs 28:13) He who = covers his sins = shall not be blessed; = but = whoever confesses = and = leaves them = shall have mercy.

(1Corinthains 16:22) If = anyone = does not love = the Lord Jesus Christ, = let him [her] = = be Accursed. = The Lord comes!
