Blessed in Heavenly Places

Eph 1:3
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Previously we talked about how it was God’s will for mankind to be blessed from the beginning. We saw from Genesis chapter 1 that after God created man, He blessed us and commanded us to increase and multiply. We examined how that when the devil (who is the thief) made an appearance in the Garden of Eden, he came to basically steal this blessing from us and ultimately destroy the plan of God for mankind. When the devil visited man in the Garden of Eden, He killed us spiritually. When Jesus came, he came to give us back life. We needed our spiritual life back in order to function in the heavenly realms where God is. Now that you have been saved, you have life, abundant life. You are now a member of the body of Christ. God has blessed you with all spiritual blessing in heavenly places.
One of the reasons why our blessing has to be SPIRITUAL BLESSING in HEAVENLY REALMS is because the realm of the spiritual directly controls the physical and the heavenly realms control the spiritual realm. The devil also operates from the realm of the spiritual, but the heavenly realm is beyond his manipulation, and this is the realm in which God has chosen to install your blessing, where no one can steal or destroy it.
One of the major attributes of blessing is that it causes multiplication and increase. When God told man to multiply, increase, rule over and subdue the earth, He had to bless us first. Multiplication and increase is only possible after the blessing has been installed.
God’s blessing upon your life will make for increase and multiplication in your life; you will begin to experience growth and increase, multiplication and prosperity in every area. Just make sure you stay joined to Christ and plug into your spiritual blessing in heavenly places.
Stay in the will of God and stay filled with the Holy Spirit. This is the surest way to stay joined to Christ.
May you see an unusual manifestation of the blessing this year in Jesus name
