The curse placed upon the ground because of the sin of Adam affected mankind so much. It brought a lot of suffering, hardship, poverty, lack, insufficiency, evil and restlessness. But thank God for our Lord Jesus who through His atonement broke the curse and redeemed us from the all curses.
Gen 1:11-25 KJV 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
In Gen 1:11 & 24, God placed a demand on the earth to bring forth herbs and fruit yielding tree and it was so. Here were the herbs and the tree? Heb 11: 3 says so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
I used to think that were made from nothing, but what the place says is that they were made from things that cannot be seen
In order words they were made from something or they came from somewhere. The spiritual world.
So when God says let the earth bring forth, it was a demand on the earth to bring forth or out of itself what it harbor or contains.
This month your earth will bring forth
In verse 24 God commanded the earth to bring forth abundantly all the animals we see today and ever since then, they have been in abundance
I pray for you, may your earth not only bring forth but that it will bring forth abundantly.
Your business shall bring forth abundantly
Your family shall bring forth abundantly in Jesus name.
The earth was a blessing to man and beast. The earth was to produce food both for man and animals
Psalms:104:14: He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
In Gen chapter three, there was problem, Adam and Eve trespassed and the earth was cursed. The earth that was a source of blessing was cursed for man sake.
After the fall the earth was cursed by God for man sake
Gen:3:17: And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19: In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
God placed man in the garden and gave them instructions join what to eat and not what to eat, but the devil came as serpent and deceived man and woman, they trespassed against God”s instruction. Man obeyed God and fell into the trap of Satan .
Devil is doing the same today, may you not fall into Satan deception in Jesus name.
Thorns and bristles represent hardship and difficulty.
In Gen God asked the earth to bring forth herbs and fruit yielding tree as a blessing but after the fall, God commanded the earth to bring forth thorns and bristles for man. Thorns and bristles symbolizes hardship and difficulties.
Many people don’t understand the implication of the curse on the ground for man’s sake. Man does not need to suffer, the fruit yielding tree were there, and they were producing fruit, all man need to do was to walk up to whichever one he likes and pluck them up. No struggle, no labour, no toiling.
His sorrow was to arise from the labor and sweat with which he was to draw from the ground the means of subsistence. Instead of the spontaneous fruits of the garden, the herb of the field, which required diligent cultivation, was henceforth to constitute a principal part of his support.
But after the fall, struggle begins, he had to toil, labour and even with that the earth will still not bring forth abundantly for him again because of the curse.
That is why man is suffering today, sweating and toiling, struggling to make end meet.
May that yoke be broken over any life here in Jesus name
The same curse was placed on earth after Cain shed the blood of his brother Abel on the ground. It was the first murder. See what Bible says
Gen 4:11-12 KJV 11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; 12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
Ever since then, man has been struggling. But it will not continue for ever. God established jubilee year.
How was the curse reversed?
Lev 25:13-22 KJV 13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. 14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another: 15 According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee: 16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee. 17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God. 18 Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety. 19 And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety. 20 And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase: 21 Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years. 22 And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.
The year of jubilee was a year of release and if they observe it, God promised to command His blessing on the earth so much that they will not be able to contain it. They will have to carry out old stuff from their houses because the new lines are available
May that be your story in Jesus name, may money meet money in your hands.
What Bible was pointing to was what will happen in the new testament. They were pointing to what Jesus will do.
Now Jesus came, shed His blood, first in the garden when He was toiling in prayer for mankind. Bible says the sweat was like drop of blood, He also shed His blood on the cross of calvary,
Luk 22:44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Because of the blood mixed with sweat, the curse that was placed on man in the garden was broken. Man was released from that curse forever. The blood and sweat touched the ground and so, the curse on the ground was broken too. The toiling and sweating and hardship was broken, praise God.
Now if man. Sweat while working, it is not because of curse but because of perspiration which is good for man’s health.
Jesus is our jubilee and has released us from the curse.
Gal 3:13-14: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14% That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Now because we are Abraham sons, we are blessed people and we are now to speak to our earth to bring forth not thorns and bristles but to bring forth good fruit. Out lands is expected to bring forth good fruit.
Your earth may be your body, it may be your business, ministry, career, jobs, etc, you can speak to it and it shall bring forth blessings abundantly.
It is the time of Holy Spirit as prophesied
Isa 29:17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
Every dryness around anyone is being turn around in Jesus name.
Isa 32:15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.
Because the curse is broken, blessings has come
Isa 65:23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
Deu 28:4-5 4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
Every yoke of hardship, toiling without results is terminated over my endeavours from today in Jesus name
Every yoke of labouring in vain is destroyed in Jesus name
I command my earth to hear the word of God and bring forth its blessing in Jesus name.
