When He wants to bless you as a person, He blesses you to the thousandth generation.
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. [Deuteronomy 5:10]
God’s will and plan are to show love to a thousand generations. It is almost beyond the scope of my imagination that God blesses my 1,000th kin all because I did something to please Him.
Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations. [Deuteronomy 7:9]
He hath remembered his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
God will remember His covenant to you and your family and He will also remember His words of promise to you up to a thousand generations. If you fail to claim the promise due to your disobedience, someone in your family will claim the blessing on your behalf up to the thousandth generation. That does not sound too good. I would rather claim my own blessing in my lifetime.
Our God is such a wonderful God. His love surpasses His punishment. The scripture below says, He will punish only up to the third or fourth generation. His love to you will last for a thousand generations but His punishment will last only up to the fourth generation. Glory be to God!
Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. [Exodus 34:7]
God’s Multiplication System
The scripture below will help you to understand why God seems to calculate in measures of thousand. God counts a thousand to be one, hence the blessing of a day to you will last for a thousand years. When God really wants to bless you for a day according to God’s measure in the kingdom of God, you will receive a thousand physical days’ blessing all bundled together at the same time. That can be very overwhelming and awesome.
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. [2 Peter 3:8]
Promise of a Thousand Times Blessings
That kind of blessing will overshadow whatever the enemy might have been doing in your life. This is the kind of blessing that will flood and drown the enemy: that makes the enemy to run from you. The blessing that you can calculate and plan towards your future is a mere shadow compared to the blessing of a thousand times that is attainable in God.
“An anointing is not just given: you earn and maintain it.”
I have labeled this blessing an anointing because I have seen that it does not come easily on anyone, even believers. An anointing is that which allows you to do that which is beyond your ability. It endows you with extraordinary power and blessings. An anointing is not just given: you earn and maintain it. For you to activate it upon your life, you must apply some principles or maxims – secret principles of the Kingdom of God. If you will genuinely put these principles into action, buckled in with faith, obedience and a life of pleasing God, your life will begin to experience this awesome and unbelievable blessing.
