Christ 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”
It is astounding to realize how few Christians really know what Jesus did for mankind when He died on the cross. Even people who have been in church all their lives are still talking about generational curses and attending endless “deliverance” services without ever getting delivered!
Religion has sold us short and we are left believing that God still needs to do something additional in our lives to bring us into victory, and that He will only do that when we fulfill the correct criteria.
Yet the scrpiture tells us very clearly that Jesus Christ has ALREADY redeemed us from the curse. We are no longer operating under any kind of curse : He became a curse for us and dealt with the problem at the root.
Let’s look for one moment at what the curse is. Deuteronomy 28 gives us a full description of all its outworkings, but in essence to be cursed is to be destined to to fail at whatever we undertake. It brings depression, hopelessness, sickness, lack, desperation and death.
Under the Old Covenant Law we always come up short of whatever we need to fulfill all righteousness and to succeed. It is impossible to meet the standard. It’s demands are too heavy a burden for us to carry.
In fact the Law was only given in the first place to bring us to the point of recognizing our need of a Savior. We were never supposed to succeed by means of our own performance and efforts.
But the truth is that we are redeemed. Everything that it is going to take to make us whole has been taken care of. Jesus bore the curse in His own body and the burden is lifted.
Once we accept this we recognize how strong our position is. No more trying and failing. No more feeling unworthy. We can stand up for what is ours and fight for it. We are redeemed from every agenda that the devil has been working in our lives.
Declare it today: “I am redeemed from not having my needs met and from dying young. I am redeemed from having no job and no prospects, from fear and from pressure, from loneliness and from people who are against me. The blood was strong enough to reverse the effects of the curse in my life! I am blessed!”
