REMOVING CURSES by Pastor Paul Locke for loxland.com 22/01/2016 and YouTube
Detection of a curse in your life is the beginning for there is such a wide gap between blessings and a curse. (Deut 28:1-14 & 15) The blessings are visible to the world that see and call you blessed. A curse is like a leaking boat that if you fail to stop the leak your boat sinks and you along with it. The classic removal of a curse was when the Philistines possessed the Ark of the Covenant and sent the Ark back to the Israelites with tributes to prevent further calamities in their communities. (1Sam 6:3)
Promise to Abram and his seed from God was to bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. (Gen 12:3) Not all wealth is a blessing, but the love of money is the root of all evil. We are to seek first the Kingdom of God and all its righteousness and all things will be issued unto you. The wealth of the wicked is laid up for the righteous and God shows us how to access this wealth when we are told to ‘ask the Egyptians for gold and silver.’ (Ex 12:35)
Judaizers were ignorant disciples of Jesus who were Jewish at birth and in life; who could not understand the message of Jesus who took the curses upon himself for us. (Gal 3:13) Peter would never lay hands on a gentile and this is the reason God baptised sovereignly the household of Cornelius. Later he laid hands on the Samaritans because those people were Jews. (Acts 8:17) Paul was called to lay hands on the gentiles and cursed anyone preaching a different Gospel than his.
Modern day churches are cursed by Paul for departing from his message of laying hands for impartation of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 19:6) He clearly understood the teaching of the Holy Spirit and the righteous in Jesus are called to be the ‘hands and feet of Jesus’. Nothing is impossible with God but chooses to use Born Again believers to impart the Holy Spirit to those who repent and ask. (Lk 11:13) Churches need to repent for this omission.
American Churches still tell people they are Born Again when they accept Jesus which negates the teaching of Jesus. (Jhn 3:3-5) This omission keeps people as one talent persons that come through hearing and belief in the Gospel. Those who progress seek to become two talent people by impartation of the Holy Spirit go further and begin to invest their gift to others: a doubling effect that is revealed in this parable. (Mtt 25:22) Taste and see the Lord is good.
