Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer. Ephesians 1:3 God’s Word Translation
When you think of “spiritual blessings” do you think of a car, a home, a favor for your child to get into a certain school? Probably not. Why? Because more than likely you have been taught that spiritual blessing are SPIRITUAL. They are immaterial and exist only in the ether or you will get those when you get to Heaven. Well I have some Good News for you. Spiritual blessings can be material and ARE material. It’s amazing what you can learn and how much revelation you can get simply from defining words because everything is made up of or out of WORDS!! So lets define that word ‘spiritual’ there in the that scripture. That word spiritual is the greek word pneumatikos. Pnematikos means spiritual or that which emanates from the Spirit. So lets find out what emanates from the Spirit. Do you remember in Genesis when God said Let there be light!? Of course you do. But did you realize that nothing happened until the Spirit moved at God’s Word?
So Light emanated from the Spirit. The world you see, the very air you breath, emanated from the Spirit. Would you say that having oxygen to breathe is a good thing a blessing? I do, because without it our bodies would die. But that oxygen emanates from the Spirit as does the trees and the firmament that surrounds the Earth. The Word says every good and perfect gift descends down from the Father of Lights. The Word of God is Spirit or spiritual. When it is spoken in faith it causes things to manifest in the natural realm. So you see these spiritual blessings are very real and can be seen. They are all around us. You are a spiritual blessing. You are born again therefore you have come from and emanate from God’s own Spirit. You are called to be a blessing to the Kingdom, your family and other people.
People are the main way God the Father has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. Every person is a spirit. There are people who are not even born again and have created great inventions that make life easier for us each day. That is a spiritual blessing because it is a blessing that emanates from the Spirit. Now I want you to look at this translation of that same scripture.
May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be eulogized, the One who conferred benefactions upon us in the sphere of every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 Kenneth Wuest Translation
This scripture says Poppa God, has conferred or bestowed upon us benefactions or benefits in the sphere or in the form of every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. These blessings such as air and food were all conceived in Heaven but they have been given on Earth for our benefit. The Father has no problem with you living like you are already in Heaven and this applies to your health, prosperity and other areas even relationships. Now you probably can’t get those gold streets just yet but you need to come as close as possible in every area of your life because you are an ambassador and Poppa has provided for you to receive from Heaven and live here in your embassy with the same quality of life as you would in Heaven. You may have to chew on that awhile because it is a spiritual steak but if you keep chewing you will get it.
When the United States ambassador goes to an impoverished country he or she does not live like the other people in the country lives. They live as if they were in the USA. They have access to the same food and quality of life and material as if they were back in the U.S.. The rest of the country may go without but the embassy is fully stocked, furnished and staffed to meet all the ambassadors needs. Why? Because they are there on assignment. They are not there in their own name or power or provisions. They are there with all the wealth and backing of the United States Government. Think about that!! You are a citizen of Heaven here on assignment for the Kingdom of God. You don’t go have to be subjected to just Earthly living because you are here on Earth. The Word of God declares:
But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. Phillipians 3:20 New Living Translation
So you can live right here on Earth with the same means, blessings and benefits as you would if you were at home in Heaven. “Well Brother Vincent I have never heard or seen anyone living like that!” You have not seen your brain but you believe you have one!!!! Heaven belongs to you NOW!!! The health of Heaven, the wealth of Heaven and all of its other benefits are yours NOW because of the finished work of Jesus Christ!! So based on that I translated every word of Ephesians 1:3 and I have my own translation with the help of the Holy Ghost. Did you know the Holy Ghost is still giving inspired words. I didn’t say it was scripture but I said inspired words especially ones grounded and rooted in scripture. I would like to share it with you and it is a great confession.
“Blessed be Poppa the Father of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and Us, Who hath conferred only what is beneficial on us in Christ with every property and characteristic belonging to and emanating from the Divine Spirit to endow us with and bestow and grant us the same blessings, benefits and standard of living that are fitting according to Heaven’s standards and standpoint for sons of God and citizens of Heaven. Amen!!! Ephesians 1:3 (Vincent H Ivory Translation)”
I tell you what, if that does not bless you it blesses me and I believe it pleases the Father!!! And I believe it and I am coming into agreement with it to receive the same blessings, benefit and standard of living that is fitting according to Heavens standard and standpoint for sons of God and citizens of Heaven. Amen! Amen! and Amen!!!
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
