Summary: We represent the priesthood who minister the things of God. We cannot define our blessings because our blessings are limitless. As the Word says, these blessings are pressed down, shaken together, and running over and they are more than enough. So walk in
Priestly Covenant Blessings
Deuteronomy 18:1-2;5 - The priests, the Levites-all the tribe of Levi-shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel; they shall eat the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and His portion. Therefore they shall have no inheritance among their brethren; the Lord is their inheritance, as He said to them. For the Lord your God has chosen him out of all your tribes to stand to minister in the name of the Lord, him and his sons forever.
Money on its own is not a blessing. Money is part of the blessings but it is not the Biblical definition of blessings. There are things that money cannot buy.
What are spiritual blessings?
• living in a peaceful environment
• living a life which is stress-free
• having your family around you
• living in health and healing
• enjoying a long and fruitful life
• having sufficiency in all things
• being safe from harm
• fulfilling your divine purpose
It is possible to have all these blessings here on earth. God wants to release blessings in your life, but you may have to re-position yourself in order to receive these blessings.
1 John 4:17 - Because as He is, so are we in this world.
We are living in the now and God wants us to experience all these blessings.
A lot of believers do not walk in their blessings because they think they do not deserve it. You do not necessarily have to work for these blessings. The blessings of the Lord can be accessed by being obedient and speaking them over your life by faith.
Abraham was God’s covenant partner. He was a man of faith and he pleased God. When you please God, God is going to please you. A happy father is a giving father. Abraham believed God and he did things which were right in the sight of God.
God called Moses to take the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt. After Moses died, God raised up Joshua to divide the Promised Land as an inheritance to the tribes of Israel.
Of the 12 tribes, only 11 were permitted to inherit land which had clearly defined boundaries for each tribe.
The remaining tribe of Levi were the priests who ministered to God, to the people, and presented the people to God. They were representatives of God and were not allowed to receive any land.
The other tribes received an inheritance that was clearly defined and had limited prescribed boundaries. God had something else in mind for His anointed priests.
He did not want them to inherit land, because He wanted them to inherit Him. He wanted them to understand that when they inherited Him, they inherited undefined blessings without limits and without boundaries. They did not have an inheritance of material things because they (the priests) would be the blessings and they would release the blessings of the Lord on God’s people and on the nation.
They were not discriminated against or shortchanged but received the best because they inherited God, all His power, all His wealth, and all His authority. That was God’s plan for those who ministered to the Lord and represented the things of God to the people.
Throughout the history of humankind, land has always been important. Throughout the ages, almost every war that has been fought has been fought over land.
God did not want the priests to be at war which meant that they would never have to fight. He wanted them to live in peace.
The priests would never have to fight a war because they represent God who is the God of peace, the God of love, the God of reconciliation, the God who redeems, and the God who forgives. They would not have to fight over land because they were not warriors, but peacemakers. That was their purpose and their inheritance. Not physical possessions with its limitations, but unlimited potential.
How does this apply to you and I?
1 Peter 2:9 - But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
Because of the work on the cross and the blood of Jesus, we are priests under the New Covenant. We represent the tribe of Levi. We are the tribe that does not receive defined, limited blessings. We are not the tribe that is in constant conflict and fighting wars. We are the peacemakers who inherit God and everything that God is. The blessings allocated to the tribe of Levi are allocated to you and me. This is our inheritance. That is who we are.
We are who God is and we are the possessions, we are the blessings. Because we inherit God, we inherit all that He is and all that He has. We have every blessing because of who we are. It is our God-given inherited right because we are washed in the blood of the Lamb. We do not have to beg for anything.
