And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others]. Genesis 12:2 AMPC
Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified); 14 To the end that through [their receiving] Christ Jesus, the blessing [promised] to Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, so that we through faith might [all] receive [the realization of] the promise of the [Holy] Spirit.
Galatians 3:13-14 AMPC
And if you belong to Christ [are in Him Who is Abraham’s Seed], then you are Abraham’s offspring and [spiritual] heirs according to promise. Galatians 3:29 AMPC
The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22 KJV
1. Through receiving Jesus Christ, the blessings of Abraham are yours.
a. [Christ, the Messiah] is therefore the Negotiator and Mediator of an [entirely] new agreement (testament, covenant), so that those who are called and offered it may receive the fulfillment of the promised everlasting inheritance—since a death has taken place which rescues and delivers and redeems them from the transgressions committed under the [old] first agreement. 16 For where there is a [last] will and testament involved, the death of the one who made it must be established, 17 For a will and testament is valid and takes effect only at death, since it has no force or legal power as long as the one who made it is alive. Hebrews 9:15-17 AMPC
2. Jesus signed His New Testament will with His own shed blood.
a. For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matthew 26:28 KJV
b. When someone dies, there is a reading and reader of the will.
c. Your name is in the will. You have been redeemed from the curse of the law and you have inherited all the blessings of Abraham. A “last will and testament” refers to by which one’s possessions are distributed after their death.
d. Sometimes people contest the will. They try to hold up or steal the legal benefits that belong to you as heir. Do you know who tries to contest Jesus’ will? It’s our enemy, the devil; he is the contester.
e. The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). John 10:10 AMPC
f. The contester says, “You should give up; the Lord has failed you.” The will declares, “I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]” Hebrews 13:5 AMPC
g. The contester says, “The desires and plans you are dreaming of are impossible.” The will says, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37 KJV
3. Excessive blessings are available to us, by His power, for His purpose.
a. That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! 20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]. Ephesians 3:19-20 AMPC
b. God grants you out of His rich treasury of His glory. There is no lack in Heaven. Heaven is not running short. He is El Shaddai, not El Cheapo.
c. Let the Holy Spirit have free reign to indwell your innermost being and personality. Let God have and be in control. Excessive blessings come in your obedience & submission.
d. You can and will carry out His purpose, by His power, and do superabundantly, far over and above all that you dare ask or think, infinitely beyond your highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.
e. You must make His purpose your purpose, on purpose, for Kingdom service.
f. Excessive blessings, from Heaven, cover every area of your life.
g. Health, Healing & Quality of Life - Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy; 5 Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]! Psalm 103:3-5 AMPC
h. Direction - The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. Psalm 37:23 AMPC
i. Favor - And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others]. Genesis 12:2 AMPC
j. Protection - Look, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19 KJV Also see Psalm 91.
k. Wisdom - If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him. James 1:5 AMPC
l. Financial Provision - 2 Corinthians 9:6-11 AMPC
m. Salvation for You and Your Entire Household - And they answered, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ [give yourself up to Him, take yourself out of your own keeping and entrust yourself into His keeping] and you will be saved, [and this applies both to] you and your household as well. Acts 16:31 AMPC
Excessive, superabundant, extravagant, lavish, too much, over-the-top, unrestrained, outrageous, extreme, superfluous and exorbitant blessings are yours! Take them - share them - enjoy them!
