THIS IS THE ORIGIN OF THE BLESSING:
Wow talk about an "aha ah" call it revelation if you like, but while I (Allan Carrington) was preparing for tomorrow's AFCC online gathering I was working with the Scripture reading that Samuel reads for us. Sam is reading Exodus 20:1-21 and suddenly words jump off the page as they do right? Chapter 20 Verse 6
God is talking "I will show love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments" DUH I never connected the ten commandments to the ultimate blessing before. Also Glynis connected it to the second verse of the song The Blessing which has gone viral around the world (50 different country versions so far)The song says:
May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
Your family and your children
And their children, and their children
Take time to listen to this familiar scripture but this time reflect on the fact that loving God and keeping God's Law is necessary and connected to His Blessing ... it changes everything!
Join us tomorrow at 4.00pm Adelaide time ... as Pastor Lindsay unpacks this and be blessed! ... See MoreSee Less
