Thus saith the Lord God.
Creator of heaven and earth,"There are no blessings for the disobedient.
No matter how much you claim your blessings,they will not come for the heavens are shut until you obey."
When the Lord said this He showed me the closed heavens that He was talking about.
They were completely sealed,not even the smallest thing could pass through them.
I can best describe it like a person trying to pass through a wall!
If you want the blessings of God,the shortcut is obedience.
His ears ll be open to your prayers and His eyes ll be on you.
Jesus Christ told me that if only the women could obey even in the area of dressing decently and not wearing trousers or using makeup and artificial hair,He said if their obedience included even these areas,they wouldn't even have to pray and fast just to get married or have that job or get those blessings they want from Him.
He said they would just come to them easily.
This is just an example Jesus used but the obedience in this is for men as well.
Don't obey God in part,obey Him fully if you want to see His blessing both here on earth and in the life to come.
satan knows that the secret to your blessings is obedience and that's why he fights so hard to keep you in disobedience to God.
If only you would obey God fully even in tithes and offerings,you would live under open heaven.
The blessings of God lie only in obedience.
"Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."Matthew 6:31-33
" And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field……….Deutronomy 28 (Read the whole chapter).
" I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, BLESSING and CURSING : therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: "Deuteronomy 30:19
The opposite of a blessing is a curse. All the blessings of God come as a result of obedience,when there's disobedience, you get the opposite. that's why if you read the whole chapter in deutronomy 28,it further mentions curses which follow disobedience which are the exact opposite of blessings.
MESSAGE GIVEN BY GOD TO MY HUSBAND
This message was received during a series of teachings from the Lord on obedience.
The Lord said,"Why do you want Me to do what you ask Me to do but you don't want to obey Me (to do what I want you to do)?
The above sentence was said in a tone of rebuke by the Lord.
"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." James 1:22
"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, THIS MAN SHALL BE BLESSED IN ALL HIS DEEDS ."James 1:25
