Lev. 26: 3-13, 3 If ye walk in my
statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; 4 Then I will give you rain in
due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field
shall yield their fruit. 5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and
the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the
full, and dwell in your land safely. 6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye
shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out
of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. 7 And ye shall chase
your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8 And five of you
shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight:
and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9 For I will have respect
unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant
with you. 10 And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the
new. 11 And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you.
12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.
13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt,
that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke,
and made you go upright.
Romans 15:8, 8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision
for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
The Old covenant testifies of the New, and the New testifies of the Old. My
promises from the Old covenant are yea and amen, as they are in the New
Covenant. But, in every relationship there is give and take. What do I require
of My people to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before their God. And in
the doing of these simple things the keeping of My commandments will be met.
If My people that are called by My name will treat each other justly, and do
what is right in My sight in their relationships, then My favor and My blessing
will be upon them. Oh, if only My people loved to give the mercy that they have
received from My heart. But so many want Me to bestow great mercy upon them, but
they will with hold it from others. This should not be. If mercy is given it
will return again to the giver, good measure, pressed down, shaking together,
and running over. If it is with held, then when those that are with holding need
mercy none will be found.
My people have yet to come to the knowledge and understanding that I am a just
God and I judge not only the hearts of man, but their motives, and their
actions. It is all a matter of the heart. And some come to My altar with
offerings of unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, and resentment. These are
unacceptable gifts, those of bulls and goats. They must be left at the altar,
and the giver must return to the Cross where there is forgiveness of sin. Then
return again to My altar with clean hands and a pure heart. To these will My
blessings flow, and to these will My promises be released, even the blessings
spoken over the fathers of long ago.
As My people walk in My Ways, and follow the commandments that I have set before
them for the abundant life that I have promised they will inherit the land, and
no weapon formed against them shall prosper. Oh My people want Me to do all the
giving without giving Me anything in return. These are those that have
introverted eyeballs. They see only what they desire, without consideration of
what I desire. They see only their own needs, without thought of what I need or
want. Their world revolves around, I, me, mine, and my. These will not inherit
the promises, or the Kingdom of their God. These are self serving, using
manipulation, control, and other means to build the kingdom of self. How can I
release the blessings of My Kingdom to these? It cannot be.
But, I have a people that do justly, that love mercy, and that walk humbly
before their God. They do not want to be served but to serve. They have been
forgiven much, and they forgive much. They esteem others more highly than
themselves. They donít look down on others, but look up to the God that has
delivered them from guilt and shame and remember from whence they came.. They
understand My scale of justice, and administer justice with mercy. And as they
come to My altar with clean hands and a pure heart, I cannot restrain Myself
from bestowing upon them favor and blessings.
Watch now as the promises are released into the lives of those that do justly,
love mercy, and walk humbly before their God. Heirs of the promises.
