Christ has purchased our freedom from the curse of the Law by becoming accursed for us ? because "CURSED IS EVERY ONE WHO IS HANGED UPON A TREE. " - Galatians 3: 13
Once, I heard a man of God narrate a particular incident.
He had been to a hill station called kodaikannal in India. After the meetings were over he was praying for several people who were soliciting his prayers individually. There came a middle-aged woman in the prayer line and when it was her turn to get prayed she fell at the feet of the man of God and cried bitterly. Several minutes later, after she calmed down the man of God asked her what it was she was crying about. It was then that she told him her pathetic story. She said she was the wife of a wealthy businessman in Sri Lanka. Her husband loved her very much, because of her beauty and kept her like a queen. She had several servants just at her beck and call.
There was nothing lacking in her life; for her husband had showered his love upon her. Yet, she was enticed by a young man who was her driver. He spoke sweet words of love to her; she foolishly believed him and followed him to India to live happily ever after, away from her loving husband and children. But she saw the true colors of the young man after they came to India. He started beating her asking her for money. He took all her jewels, money and passport and deserted her. She wept and told the man of God that she had to now work for her every meal, and she was also unable to leave the country since her passport was not with her.
Yes, dear friends God like the dear loving husband had showered mankind with His love. There was nothing good that was withheld from man. The Garden of Eden where God kept man to reside was a picture of opulence, a picture of God?s wealth. Yet man chose to disobey God like the foolish woman, the wife of the wealthy businessman. The LORD said to the man, ?? the ground will be under a curse because of what you did.? Gen 3:17. Man reaped the consequences of his rebellion. The earth was cursed because of him. Sickness, poverty and death entered the human life. Mankind was living under this curse for 2000 years and it is to break this curse Jesus Christ the son of the living God became a curse for every man on the cross of cavalry. He was wounded for our rebellious acts. He was crushed for our sins. He was punished so that we could have peace? Isaiah - 53:5 Jesus Christ came into this world to reconcile man to God. He never came to found a religion! Jesus Christ was the sinless Lamb of God who was sacrificed on the cross. He was punished for the sins of every man. Now, through Him we have peace with God.
? By his wounds we have been made well. - 1Peter
Sickness is a curse; Jesus Christ was wounded so that we might have healing through his stripes. This is the only reason His body was broken. He? healed all that were sick. Matthew 8:16. Two thousand years ago the Lord Jesus Christ healed every sick person who was brought to him; even today it is His will that you be healed and enjoy the perfect health of God. Jesus became a curse so that you can be free today. If, any of you dear ones who are reading this are sick, I pray the Lord will touch and heal you now, even as you are reading this article.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Although he was rich, for your sakes he became poor, so that you, through his poverty, might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8: 9
Poverty on this earth is a result of man?s sin. But, Jesus Christ hung on the cross naked and forsaken in our stead. He took the curse of poverty on himself on the cross, that we might become rich through his poverty.
? The LORD your God is the one who makes you wealthy. Deuteronomy 8: 18.
Your blessings are sure to appear as you look to the cross. It is God?s will that you prosper financially. The Lord will bless the work of your hands and He shall make you the head and not the tail. I pray that peace with God, health and wealth will be your portion as you meditate on these truths.
