The generation of the upright shall be blessed
Ephesians 1:3 "Blessed the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly in Christ"
Listen: "who has blessed
us" God's elect are already blessed; what has to happen is the experience of these blessings, and one of them is "Spiritual
colossians 1:9-11 "9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard, do not cease to
pray for you, and to desire that ye be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;10
That ye walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;11
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness"
Ephesians 1:15-18 "15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the
saints,16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of glory, give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:18 The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the
Psalm 119:18 "Open thou mine eyes,
that I behold wondrous things out of thy law"
Lord open the eyes of your people, so we could see your
truth in Malachi 3:10.
Malachi 3:10 "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there be meat in mine
house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out
a blessing, that not enough"
Remember, God's chosen people blessings are spirituals, so our tithing is spiritual.
The Meat is Christ, the house is man.
How do I bring my tithes? Every time I proclaim that Jesus is the Bread, Jesus
is the Water, Jesus is the Lamb of God, Jesus came to save sinners, Jesus is God, and many more spiritual truths.
57:1-3 "1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings

shall send from heaven and save me the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and
Verse 3 "He shall send from heaven" "God shall send forth his mercy and his truth"
remember Malachi 3:10 "prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven"
The Lord Jesus Christ has sent His mercy and truth to my soul (Salvation) I trust in Him alone. The windows that He is opening
is the Truth of His Salvation; His sovereign control over life and salvation: yesterday, today and tomorrow (if I get there)
Psalm 149:4 "For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation"

of righteousness shall be peace and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for
Psalm 29:11"The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless
his people with peace"
Righteousness = Christ.
The work of Salvation in Christ is peace and the
effect of Christ is quietness (I wait) and assurance (I know that I am a child of God) for ever.

of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry: Abba, Father.16 The Spirit itself beareth

I have been crying "abba Father" for
a quite some time (25 yrs plus)
Galatians 4:4-7 "4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his
Son, made of a woman, made under the law,5 to redeem them that were under the law, that we receive the adoption of sons.6
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying: Abba, Father.7 Wherefore thou
art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ"
John 1:14-17 "14
And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father)
full of grace and truth.15 John bare witness of him and cried, saying: This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me
is preferred before me: for he was before me.16 And of his fulness have all we received and grace for grace.17 For the law
was given by Moses; grace and truth came by Jesus Christ"

unto us and bless us; cause his face to shine upon us; Selah"

of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ"
1:12-17 "12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of
the saints in light:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated into the kingdom of his dear Son:14
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn
of every creature:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven and that are in earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:17 And he is before
all things and by him all things consist"
greatest blessing is to know and trust in the Salvation of my soul; that my Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ: God himself and
the He has given me this knowledge and peace because I am a chosen of God, my Heavenly Father.
"Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth"
John 3:5 "Jesus answered: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water
and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God"
Water = The Lord
Isaiah 44:3 "For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty and
floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed and my blessing upon thine offspring"
Does your soul yearn for spiritual blessings? My soul hath yearned for spirituals blessings since the Lord Jesus
Christ brought Salvation to my soul.
Psalm 133 "1 Behold, how good and how pleasant for brethren to dwell
together in unity!2 like the precious ointment upon the head that ran down upon the beard, Aaron's beard: that went down to
the skirts of his garments;3 as the dew of Hermon, that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded
the blessing: life for evermore"
PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
