A Study on Blessings and Curses
Many people don't realize that blessings and curses are powerful and affective. According to the Scriptures we can bring a blessing or a curse upon ourselves by our words and/or our actions; we can bless or curse other people and we can also be blessed or cursed by others. We can also, of course, be blessed or cursed by God.
In the begining God blessed His creation, and although believers and unbelievers alike still
We've not been bought with diamonds, with silver or with gold
Since none of these could free us from the devil's vice-like hold.
We've not been saved through threats, with promises or force
For such manipulative methods God would not endorse.
God did not barter with the devil, nor did He compromise;
He did not deign to make a deal with
Who is He?
Who is this Jesus Whom you love - a babe upon some straw
Whilst wise men bow down low to worship and adore?
Do you perhaps envision Him walking upon the Earth;
The quiet, gentle Teacher who came by virgin birth?
Yet then, again, at times is He the Lamb upon the cross
Maimed, broken, hurt and dying - God's sacrifice for us?

But kept on moving through each day
And from his course he did not stray.
Quite soon he was joined by others;
They bonded and became like brothers.
Though that man

Move closer and listen; I'll tell you a story
Of the Prince of Peace; the Son of Glory,
Who long ago on this earth did dwell
To save us from sin and death and hell.
It happened one beautiful starry night
When one star in particular shone very bright;
It guided the wise men to Bethlehem -
To a humble stable which they did not ken.
