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: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith...And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
(Gal. 3:13,14,29)
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law!

What is the curse of the Law? The only way to find out is to go back to the Law. The expression "the Law" as found in the New Testament usually refers to the Pentateuch, the first five Books of the Bible. As we go back to these books—or the Law—we find that the curse, or punishment, for breaking God's law is threefold: poverty, sickness, and spiritual death.

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
(1 Tim. 4:8)
Some people would have us believe that we don't have any promise in this life of any blessing, material or otherwise, but this scripture emphatically declares that we do.

According to Deuteronomy 28: 15-17,38-40, the curse of poverty was to come upon God's children if they disobeyed Him. It was a curse that would come upon them because they failed to observe all His commandments and His statutes.

God Shall Supply All Your Needs
Paul said, writing to the Church at Philippi, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Phil. 4:19). "All your needs" would include your financial, material, and other needs. In fact, in this chapter, Paul is talking about financial and material things.

Jesus Himself said, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33). These things that shall be added unto you are material things in life—something to eat, something to wear, and so on.

Some people seem to have the idea that if a person is a Christian, a believer in God, it is a mark of humility—a mark of godliness—for him to live in poverty and not have anything. They think you ought to go through life with the top of your hat out, the soles of your shoes out, and the seat of your pants worn out—just barely able to get along.

But that isn't what Jesus said, He said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Not taken from you; He said they shall be added unto you! Praise God.
