Released from the Curse of the Law
Key scripture Galatians 3:13, and supporting scriptures Deut. 21:23 and Romans 8:3.
What does it mean to us as believers when we read this scripture? Released from the “Curse of the Law!” Were we under a curse. Where did it come from? How did we become its victims?
To fully understand the reason and the consequences of the above statement we have to look at the tenets of the blood covenant. Back in Genesis, the fifteenth chapter, we are privileged to listen to God and Abraham discussing his (Abraham’s) future and what God had planned for his descendants. Abraham believed God, as we are told in Romans chapter 4, but exhaled, and wondered… God allayed his concerns with the directions to set up the sacrifice for a blood covenant. What is the Blood Covenant? Let us go back to Genesis when Adam disobeyed and took of the forbidden fruit. He broke his covenant relations with the Most High God, and control of the planet went to the Prince of Darkness (Satan). See II Cor. 4:4. We read that God slew an animal to hide their nakedness, but more than their physical nakedness resulted from the decision—the spiritual covering they had was also gone. God used the blood of the slain animal to cover their sins. Sin cannot stand in the presence of a holy God and survive! From that blood covering grew an act that all indigenous peoples practiced in various forms. It did not even resemble the original, but nevertheless the core was for covering/protection. Those in covenant became staunch supporters of each other’s families, resources, and rights. When two tribes, families came together in the bond of the blood covenant, it was an iron clad contract that pledged the support, protection, and assistance of the covenant partners to each other. Now, back to Genesis 15, and we have God telling Abraham to prepare the sacrifices.
The terms of the covenant include a blessing for upholding the tenets of the covenant and a curse for disobedience. Read Deut. Chapter 28:15-61. This is what would happen if the terms of the covenant were broken; when the physical descendants of Abraham went into bondage, it was the breaking of the terms of the covenant. The curse operates under the law. Since Jesus redeemed humanity (as many as believe in Him), we are no longer under the curse of the law, nor the law of sin and death.
If we are ignorant of the fact that the operation of the calamities that occur under the curse are operating illegally, unless we have opened a door, then we can stand on the Word of the living God for deliverance and restoration.
Listen to this Message and walk out of darkness into the light of His Love.
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Healing and Deliverance
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
