7 DIMENSIONAL BLESSINGS OF NEXT LEVEL

The Word: Galatians 3: 13 – 14(KJV)

13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Dig Deeper: Genesis 12:  1 – 4(KJV)

1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessingAnd I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessedSo Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him;

7 DIMENSIONAL BLESSINGS OF NEXT LEVEL
Let’s do a recap of our discussions so far:

Deuteronomy 2: 2 – 3 (The LORD said we have compassed about this mountain, long enough. Turn ye northward)
– We said a 7th season represents a prophetic or Divine season of perfection and completion. 7 being symbolic of the completion of a phase or a circle.
Ecclesiastes 3: 1 – 3 (To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven) Everything in life has a time.
Ecclesiastes 3: 11 (He makes all things beautiful in its time) – God has a natural timing for all things when he makes them beautiful
John 2: 4 (My hour has not yet come) God has his own time when he prefers to move ready. God’s timing is what we call appointed time (Psalm 102: 13). The set time, the right timing. (Genesis 18: 14)

In Romans 8: 28 -30 We understand those he predestinated he called. Those he called he justified and those he justified he glorified. So you have been called, I’ve been called. Each call of God is a call to the NEXT LEVEL. Salvation is a call to a NEXT LEVEL. It just the beginning of the call. The call to purpose is also another call. It’s a call to a higher level in GOD. Next level is what is available after.

God called Abraham out of Haran and his father’s house and clan (Genesis 12: 1). That was a call to the NEXT LEVEL.

– It was a call of faith
– It was a call to obedience
– It was call to a life of separation
– It was a call to higher level of commitment
– It was call to go deeper in God.
– It was a call to holiness and purity
– It was a call to the blessing
– It was a call to the NEXT LEVEL

God calling Abraham out of his father’s house and country is a shadow of Jesus’s call to us at salvation. One call was in the old testatment, another was in the new testament. Both calls are similar. 

In our text today, We read: 

Galatians 3: 13 – 14
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

What is the blessing of Abraham?
Let’s go back to Genesis 12: 1 – 4 (The Abrahamic blessing is 7 dimensional)

1. Generational Blessings – And I will make of thee a great nation, 
2. Empowered to prosper – I will bless thee,
3. Change of Identity – make thy name great;
4. Channel of blessings – thou shalt be a blessing:
5. Association blessings – I will bless them that bless thee
6. Self Protected Blessing –  I will curse him that curseth thee:
7. Spiritual blessing of Redemption – and  in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Nuggets: 
The next level is an invitation to the  Abrahamic 7 dimensional blessings
