THE TRUTH ABOUT “I will bless them that bless thee …”

False doctrine abounds today and Christian Zionism and Dispensational theology is at the top of the false doctrine list.  Beliefs determine behavior and when a false doctrine is accepted as truth it will have deadly consequences.  It is a great unkindness to lead a Jewish unbeliever to think that the blessing of God is upon him in his unbelieving condition when in reality it is the wrath of God which is upon him or any other person who does not believe the glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Matthew 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

MHCC:

The promise of the blessing was made to Abraham and his seed; of the dominion, to David and his seed. It was promised to Abraham that Christ should descend from him,

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Genesis 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

and to David that he should descend from him,

2 Samuel 7:12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. Psalms

89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,

Psalms 132:11 The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

and, therefore, unless Jesus is a son of David, and a son of Abraham, he is not the Messiah. Now this is here proved from well-known records. When the Son of God was pleased to take our nature, he came near to us, in our fallen, wretched condition; but he was perfectly free from sin: and while we read the names in his genealogy, we should not forget how low the Lord of glory stooped to save the human race.

Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
