Sunday Walk 55 – The Cross: Blessings and Curses

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, King James Bible 1769

Given the Deuteronomy quote above there are both blessings and curses (life and death). Furthermore, experience suggests that many of us find it easier to curse than to bless. Too often we speak harshly of others and even ourselves. Too often we slip into immorality while seeking either pleasure or power.

Given curses, how do we undo them? How can we go from curses to blessings?

Near the beginning of the video below Derek Prince said, “If you have any need or problem whatsoever in your life there is one place and only one place to which you must go to find God’s provision or God’s solution and that one place is the cross of Jesus.”

Satan wouldn’t want to remove a curse. Those nature deities like Gaia couldn’t. Honoring them with attention might go beyond being a waste of time and lead one through idolatry to even more curses.

  1. Frank,
    It’s surprising to me how nature deities have infiltrated our culture’s discourse as if it’s all perfectly “natural.” It used to be luck, fate or karma. Looks like our culture is for the old “gods” again, now that environmentalism has become a religion.
