Turning Curses to Blessings

Carl Fox

 

Do you ever wonder why the same old problems keep coming back into your life? Why some things just never seem to get resolved? Why you continue to be sick? Does it seem like the flow of God's blessing is just out of reach? While much of Christianity believes curses are non-existent for believers, God’s Word says differently.

The anecdotes are vivid testimonials of the deliverance and healing available because of the work our Lord Jesus accomplished on the cross.


Introduction

The subject of curses and blessings is often unfamiliar to students of the Bible. Yet God has much to say about them. Surprisingly, despite the clear fact that Jesus hung on the tree, and became a curse for every man to redeem us from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13), we nevertheless must still deal with curses. How can I say such a thing if Christ finished our involvement with curses? Revelation 22, the closing chapter of the entire Bible speaks to this very question.

"And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him..." Revelation 22:3

The fact is, curses are still with us. What Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross was this: He gave every child of God the freedom to get out from under curses. This was one of His final acts by hanging on a tree. But clearly from Revelation 22:3, curses still exist and must be dealt with in the practical Christian walk.

The same argument is true regarding healing. Though by His stripes we were healed (I Peter 2:24), are all Christians healed today? No. But can they be if they reach out in faith to receive what Jesus accomplished for us on the cross? Yes. So it is with curses. Continue reading
