THE LORD’S BLESSINGS

  • TODAY THE LORD IS COMMANDING ME TO BLESS YOU ALL IN CLMI WINDHOEK FOR ALL YOUR MORAL,PRAYERS AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR MY MISSIONARY WORKS
  • NUMBERS  6 :23-27 IS A COMMANDMENT FROM GOD TO THE PRIEST TO BLESS THE PEOPLE:

Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.  And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

  • IT IS THE WILL OF GOD THAT THE SERVANT HE SENDS TO BLESS HIS PEOPLE MUST DO IT WILLINGLY AND WITH THEIR WHOLE HEART
  • IT MUST NOT BE DONE HALF HEARTEDLY OR IN AN IMPATIENT WAY
  • BUT WITH FULLNESS OF HEART AND WITH SINCERITY OF FAITH AND PURPOSE
  • ISAAC JOYFULLY BLESSED JACOB AFTER EATING A DELISIOUS MEAL FROM HIM
  • HE THEN  SAID TO ESAU THAT  HE HAD BLESSED JACOB AND HE SHALL BE BLESSED INDEED

HEB 13:17 SAYS:

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

  •   EZEK 44:30  TEACHES THAT  GOD’S PEOPLE HAVE THE OBLIGATION TO SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE THE PASTOR WITH THEIR OFFERINGS ANFD FIRST FRUIT
  • WHO IN TURN HAS A SERIOUS OBLIGATION TO SINCERELY BLESS GOD’S PEOPLE
  • And the first of all the firstfruits of all things, and every oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the priest’s: ye shall also give unto the priest the first of your dough, that he may cause the blessing to rest in thine house.
  • THE DESIRE OF THE PASTOR  TO SEE THE PEOPLE BLESSED IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE EAGERNESS OF THE PEOPLE TO WANT TO SINCERELY BELIEVE AND RECEIVE THE BLESSING
  • THE RAISING OF THE HAND AND LAYING IT ON THE PEOPLE IS LIKE A VIRTUAL ORDINATION
  • THE PHRASE THE LORD LIFT UP HIS FACE TOWARDS YOU PICTURES A PARENT LIFTING UP HIS CHILD WITH LOVING KINDNESS AND JOY
  • GOD’S CONTENANCE OF MERCY  AND GRACE MUST BE RECEIVED WITH LOVE AND THANKSGIVING
  • ALL BLESSINGS COME FROM GOD ALMIGHTY
  • THE FIRST BLESSING WAS TO ADAM AND EVE GEN 1:28
  • THEN GOD BLESSED NOAH AND HIS SONS WHEN THEY LEFT THE ARK
  • THEN GOD BLESSED ABRAHAM AND GAVE HIM THE POWER TO BLESS OTHERS IN GEN 12:3
  • THE POWER WAS TRANSFERRED TO ISAAC AND THEN TO JACOB WHO BLESSED HIS SONS IN GEN 48 AND 49
  • AS GOD BEGAN TO ORGANISE THE ART OF WORSHIP,THE RIGHT TO BLESS GOD’S PEOPLE WAS PART OF THE TRAINING MOSES GAVE TO AARON AND HIS SONS
  • THEREFORE UNDER THE OLD COVENANT, ONLY AARON AND  HIS SONS   WERE ENTITLED TO PERFORM THE PRISTLY BLESSINGS
  • BUT UNDER THE NEW COVENANT ALL BELIEVERS  CAN BLESS OTHERS  IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST
  • HEB 13:15  INDICATES  THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE OBJECT OF THE PRIESTLY BLESSING.
  • HE ALONE IS THE LORD ,HE ALONE IS THE BLESSER
  • HOWEVER HE HAS MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS UNTO OUR GOD I PETER 2:9;  REV 1:5-6
  • AS HE ASCENDED TO HEAVEN HE LIFTED UP HIS HANDS AND BLESSED HIS DISCIPLES IN LUKE 24: 50-51
  • HE ALSO BLESSED THEM WITH PEACE IN JOHN 14:27 AND JOHN 20:19
  • AS THE LORD IS DIRECTING ME TO BLESS YOU TODAY WITH LAYING ON OF HANDS EXPECT MORE THAN MATERIAL BLESSINGS IN JESUS NAME
  • INNER PEACE IN YOUR LIFE IS THE GREATEST AND MOST IMPORTANT BLESSING
  • BECAUSE WITHOUT IT NO OTHER BLESSING CAN POSSIBLY BE RELEASED
  • WITHOUT THE INNER  PEACE THAT ONLY GOD CAN GIVE AT FULL SALVATION,
  • ALL THE OTHER BLESSINGS  OF WEALTH,HEALTH,MARRIAGE CHILDREN ETC WILL EITHER BE IMPOSSIBLE OR SIMPLY MENINGLESS
  • PROV 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
  • ONLY GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY AND THE POWER TO SECURE YOUR BLESSINGS SO THAT THEY WILL NOT BECOOME A CURSE OR FADE AWAY
  • GOD TURNING HIS FACE TOWARDS US FOR  BLESSING INDICATE SPIRITUAL INTIMACY,THE OPPOSITE INDICATE HIS ANGER
  • SO LET US COME JOYFULLY TO THE THRONE OF GRACE THIS MORNING AND RECEIVE HIS FREE GIFTS OF LOVE AND MERCY WITH THANKSGIVING
  • TRADITIONALLY THE PRIEST WOULD JOYFULLY PERFORM THIS BLESSING CEREMONY AFTER THE SACRIFICES OF THE PEOPLE
  • THE LORD HAS SEEN OUR VARIOUS SACRIFICES IN CLMI WDK NORTH AND WANTS TO BLESS US
  • LET US RISE UP TO THANK HIM WHO HAS MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS
  • MINISTERATION
  • SALVATION
  • BLESSINGS WITH LAYING ON OF HANDS
