Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Sesugh believed very strongly that his family was under the influence of a curse. He saw things that made him begin to believe that he too was now beginning to suffer the effect of this curse. When he discussed this situation with his pastor who he had seen demonstrate the great power of God to heal and deliver in the past, his pastor asked him if he had believed in the Lord Jesus. He said he had.
Pastor Dan: Have you been Baptised in the Holy Ghost?
Sesugh: I’m not sure sir.
Pastor Dan: if you’re not sure, then you’ve not been baptized. If you’ve been baptized in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of tongues, you’ll be sure.
If you read Galatians 3:13-14, you will see that Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law by being made a curse for us. He replaced our curses with the unbeatable blessings of Abraham. But the proof that we have received this is that we receive the gift of the Spirit.
After this conversation with his pastor, Sesugh was now eager so to be Baptised in the Holy Spirit and to speak in tongues. Before, he could care less.
Curses are in different categories and with different degrees of power. The most powerful curses are ‘the curse of the law’. These are curses declared by God Himself and enforced by the power of heaven because God and His laws were handled with contempt. Even the curses of the law enforced by heaven are removed by the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, how much more weaker curses of demons and principalities?
The proof that a believer has been delivered from generational and other curses and has received the blessing of Abraham instead is that he receives the gift of the Holy Spirit by faith(see Galatians 3:14). It is through the Holy Spirit that we appropriate our blessings in Christ and walk above the power of curses.
Go into today remembering to celebrate the Holy Ghost within you and pray in the Holy Ghost daily. Praying in the spirit is a sure way to appropriate your daily dose of the blessing. Remember that all things of the Spirit are received and appropriated by faith, so quit believing that you are under any curse and start believing that you have the blessing of Abraham.
Prayer Confession: Because Christ was made a curse for me on the cross, I cannot be under any curse. I walk in the blessings of Abraham, I walk daily in the Spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
