The Seven Blessings of
Galatians 3:9 So then they which be of faith are
blessed with faithful Abraham.
- 10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is
written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written
in the book of the law to do them.
- 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident:
for, The just shall live by faith.
- 12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in
- 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for
us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
- 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus
Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
There are more than 40 blessings in the Word given to Abraham either for him or
those who would be through blessings would be blessed. In this sermon outline we
list only seven of the blessings given to or through Abraham. The blessing of
Abraham begin in Genesis 12: 1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of
thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that
I will shew thee:

name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
- 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.
