JESUS BECAME THE ACCURSED OF GOD SO THAT WE COULD BE THE BLESSED OF GOD
Deuteronomy 21:22-23 says, “If a man has committed a sin deserving of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, his body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day, so that you do not defile the land which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance; for he who is hanged is accursed of God.”
Did you see that? He who is hanged is accursed of God. Here’s what it means to be accursed: “to be consigned to damnation, perdition or misery.” It is to be declared evil or cursed by the authority.
Now, look at Galatians 3:13-14. It says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
Think about any reason why we should be cursed; Jesus became accursed for us! That’s why the man and woman in Christ CANNOT be cursed for any reason! I wish we could get this simple revelation! If you get it, you would never feel threatened by curses! God is not cursing us! How could He? We are in Christ! He can’t His Son!!! And Jesus has suffered for us! We are forever and ever and ever, and ever BLESSED! Hallelujah!!!
