While positionally we are exempt from the curse, set for heaven, forgiven, we can still place ourselves in the way of a temporal curse practically speaking.
If we spend like madmen we end up broke and we are cursed with poverty. Same if we refuse to work.
If we believe lies and myths we are cursed by deception and it's fruit. We lived defeated or at least more in defeat than we would be if we lived in truth.
If we abuse drugs and alcohol we are cursed with lost time, lost potentials, lost brain cells, and if we decide to drive while in this condition, maybe loss of freedom.
If we violate the commands against adultery we are cursed with bad relationships.
If we steal or murder we may be cursed in a jail cell.
All activities that cause us to drift from where God's best is for us, is a curse and we bring it on ourselves.
All this can happen, and we suffer the result of our disobedience here on earth, yet we can be ready and clean before God as we enter heaven. He only sees Jesus when He looks at us. We are hidden in HIM.
Jesus came and died to redeem us from the curse of sin. He did not come to lift consequences from our actions here on earth, we will not suffer in eternity, but ask anyone dying of a disease brought on by unwise behavior if they feel cursed. Sickness is not a blessing.
There is however a more pervasive curse, a culture, a society, a nation can be cursed when people do not stand against evil. Worse than that, there are those who by their sanction of certain leaders endorse the evil and end up under a temporal curse. I see this and so do you.
There was a time in ancient Israel when a horrible thing took place.
A pagan god was erected. It was made of bronze. It was actually a furnace/statue. Once per year the furnace was heated until it was red hot. People would bring little babies and lay them in the arms of the red hot god statue Molech where the screaming baby was burned alive. This horror was done so the people of Israel would experience prosperity in the coming year.
What made this even more horrid is after this evil they would go to the Temple of God to thank God for the Prosperity to come. Somehow one supposedly offset another. Playing both sides of the street. They used the Temple worship to firm up their prosperity for the year to come that they believed they achieved by their infant children being burned alive. They profaned the temple of God.
The same thing is happening all across the USA. People support, endorse and encourage national leaders and governments who embrace organizations and systems that kill unborn children and butcher them for profit. They support these evil people because of the prosperity they believe will come in the form of social programs from those hands. Now we have generations of entitled people who would riot at the thought of their government check being cut off, the "Prosperity" they traded their soul for.
Yet after supporting evil people in power they will go to the Temple, (the church) to shout, jump, pray and sing which they believe will offset the evil they are sanctioning. Just like they did in Israel.. Yet babies are being killed in their name.. It's the spirit of the false demon god MOLECH. They profane the temple of God.
God condemns this abomination practiced today in the USA.
Leviticus 20:1-27Notice he asks his people to deal with those who do such things.. "The people of the land shall stone him with stones". He is particularly angry about how they come into the temple afterward and profane his name by giving thanks for prosperity after using a live baby as a living burnt offering. "To make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name".
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech. ...
The last sentence is the one I want you to look at twice. He says that IF people tolerate this, and don't deal with it, "If the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man" HE will set His face Against them and Cut them off. "I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech. ..." So we have people being gunned down in the streets of the city I live in, Chicago. 9 year old children. It's a curse. They have been cut off.. and so are their children, cut off from life.
If Father were to address his people today, I believe this is what he would say to those in this deception:
"My Kingdom is a prosperous, safe, glorious place. YET by your retained sin you have robbed your posterity thru murder on the streets. You are become impoverished because you are not right before me. Your enthusiastic action in my church is a disguise for the darkness of your heart.
Repent of your dead works. Examine your hearts. You are cursed with a curse even though I sent Jesus to redeem you from the curse of the law. Your lawless acts of tolerating Molech worship keeps you from what I intended for you. Not reaching the destiny I had for you is a curse in itself.
Repent of your dead works. I speak to all My called ones, help those who hear your voice to come to grips with what this tolerance of evil has brought. There is a curse you live under when a worldview that is killing babies and as a result killing your children on the streets is considered normal. Accepting this and not acting against these things means my face is against you.
You are cut off. Murder on the streets will continue until the murder in your heart stops."
Let he who has ears to hear, HEAR what the spirit of the Lord is saying..
