Dear reader, you may find some difficulty believing what I am about to tell you, but it is the real truth. God’s spiritual blessings are like a gift shop. Every spiritual blessing has a price attached to it. You have to pay that price before you get it. Every truly spiritually blessed person in the Kingdom of God represents what that person or the parents paid to get that blessing.
I and my wife.
Many years ago my fiance, who is now my wife, was the first to receive Jesus Christ. Then I realized that she had spiritual peace and victories I never experienced. For that reason I one day followed her to her church where I received Jesus Christ as the Lord of my life.
From that point both of us started seeking God with all our hearts. We never missed any Sunday service, any all-night prayer meetings, any fasting event, or any conference at our church. I remember one time we heard that there was an international American evangelist who was coming to our neighboring country. We both agreed to endure a 14 hour bus journey to go and attend this minister’s meetings. This was the price we both paid for what we have now. God saw our yearning and hunger for him. Soon after that journey God appeared to me in a very powerful and spectacular way. Read here about this supernatural event that took place in my life. This was the beginning of this ministry. My wife was also blessed with her own ministry. So far she has bought land and built three churches in her home state.
Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Long before Jesus Christ was born on Earth, he was seated with our Father in Heaven. Jesus asked our Father this question:
“My Father, will it ever be possible for me to sit on your right hand side?” [see cross reference in Mark 10:35-40.]
Our Father in Heaven replied:
“My beloved Son, it is possible. But are you willing to pay the price of that blessing?”
“What is the price?”
“It is the price of dying on the Cross for the salvation of humanity” the Father replied.
“I am willing to pay that price. I know the Holy Spirit seated here with us will come and help me accomplish that difficult assignment.” Jesus replied.
As we know, Jesus came here on Earth and paid that price. After this payment, God made Jesus sit on the Father’s right hand side. Not only that, our Father in Heaven gave Jesus Christ a bonus. God exalted Jesus to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus Christ every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:9-11).
Stealing another person’s blessings.
I have heard of some Christians who steal other people’s spiritual blessings. This is like stealing an item from a gift shop. You will never be comfortable with what you have stolen. Satan and demons will arrest and torture you. Your end will be very bad, and you may end up in Hell.
