The two Angels beckoned unto the Disciples while looking up on the mountain where Jesus ascended before their eyes. "Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
This is just a tip of the iceberg. I hope what The Apostle Peter and Paul said of his imminent return gives another insights of his earthly returns.Brethren Christ comes.Keep looking up for the trumpet is at hand.Be at alert.

The Blessings of God

I am writing on Blessings.God began with Blessings.He blessed mankind to multiply and fill the earth.Christ began his first  recorded sermon by declaring the mind of God on Blessings.
Blessing is what gives an edge, as a result of  effort put into doing ,finishing or completing tasks.Spiritual blessings control the needs of our basic needs here on earth.
Blessings comes as a result of works!No work,no Blessings.

However,the works i am saying here is not tied to the works we do to earn wages or salaries alone.There are other works.Obedience engineered  spiritual works.The same with faith.Hope too,and together with love they yield blessings.

Blessings come in different colors.They also have diverse sources.No wonder the Bible said, "The Blessings of God".If we are to carefully analyze that biblical phrase ,we could deduce that there are other sources of Blessings.I want to go into those,other, possible sources.

Let's say, the first Blessings is from God.There are copious examples of how God gave his blessings in the Bible and  we are witnesses to how he bless in this our present time.
Then the second will come from the Devil but not for you in Jesus name.Devil gives his blessings on some of his satanic agendas.
The third,Parents.Yes Parents do give Blessings too, a vivid example is taken from the case of Esau and Jacob's story.The two were chasing their father's blessings.
The fourth, from oneself.Yes it is possible to see people blessing themselves.I have seen that more than countless times.People(families) of the earth now blesses themselves in Abraham according to God's words in Gen.12.
The fifth source of Blessings is a general blessings.A form of  collective blessings.The Children of Israel were blessed  generally  by Moses in Deut. 28.

These forms of blessings generates and influences our basic living on this planet earth.Do you ever wonder why people crave for blessings?
People do so because of the following reasons;
Blessings are vital to human survival.
Blessings gives confidence and assures.
Blessings approves.
Blessings are good sources of weapon.It is a powerful weapon in the hand of whom God blesses.Abraham had God's blessings on him that why he was able to rescue Lot his nephew from the group of five kings' battalions.
Blessings is a spiritual material we cannot program  for our immediate use.

Among all these Blessings,the Blessings of God is unique.When God blesses,He maketh rich and  He add no sorrow to it.The Blessings carries no emblem of sorrow.The trademarks of sorrow are usually  absent.You the receiver at the other end too know and discern the uniqueness of it.

Esau so much wanted the blessings that he wept before his father for another blessings.Jacob regretted  supplanting his brother.He was very much afraid when he was about to meet his brother on his way to return to Canaan,the land where his father was a stranger.That blessings his  father gave him is not from God.He stole it. That's why there is an element of  sorrow in it.

Blessings reflects mostly in everything we do here on the earth.The world is shaped in blessings and curses.
Balak recognized this fact when he  sought for Balaam to curse the children of Israel for him.It shows in other areas of our  lives too.Someone may have the blessings of satan to ruin you,There may be someone whom the enemy of your life has appointed to cause you trouble.The enemy blesses his agents too,he gave them his blessings.They come out with boldness to accuse you,beloved,honestly they will be wrong, but  by virtue of satanic anointing on them, will look for every opportunity to bring you down or discourage you.This happens often.It is an effective strategy satan employ against the people of God.

In relationships too it do rear its ugly head.If you are in a relationship that always make you sad.Beware,there may be no God's blessings in  such relationship.What you have to do is to make a U turn  and flee for your dear life.If you have put in the best efforts you think you could muster to save the situation, but all to no avail, i advised you to check out.I have experienced such  in this very recent time.Relationship that will make you contemplate suicide is having devil's blessings not God's.Please take note and beware!!!!
The wealth in God's blessings is not necessarily to be in form of  the multitudes or plenty of cash at hand,in the bank or in the investments..The blessings of God on Abraham made him to rescue Lot from the Mesopotamian army of the five kings that will be five times of his own 400 armed men.The Blessings of God makes one to do exploits that cash cannot do.The Blessings of God makes one rich.You will be richer when God bless you.

Proverb 22:10 is a memory verse i have memorized  and got familiarized with.I have seen and have confirmed, that,  it is true.The Blessings of God brings no sorrow.Consider Job for example,he has sorrow but God double his blessings.Temptations made Job to be grieved but God's Blessings clear away those sorrows.You too,i don't know the situation you are in, presently.May be you are passing through a very tough times in your life.Don't give up.God's Blessings comes to wipe away all your sorrows in a moment that you shall never remember them, again.
Rely on God.Don't be discouraged instead pray through to discourage your problems.

Go for God's Blessings today!Count yourself out of those worldly blessings.Some want to be rich through Jackpots,Lottery,Magic rings,419 frauds,bribery,threats,extortion,embezzlement and many other fast satanic means.Don't let me forget internet frauds too.All these don't amount to a single God's blessing.Believe me.

I can see God's shower of Blessings falling on you in every area of your life if you yield yourself to wait for  the right woman,man  and people that God will use to bless you.Be bless and bless yourself in Christ.
