“Who is BLESSED?”
Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven; whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the LORD does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit. Psalm 32:1-2
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He chose for His inheritance. Psalm 33:12
BLESSED: Blissfully happy or contented.
Just who is a BLESSED person, our verses today gives us the answer. A BLESSED person is one whose TRANSGRESSIONS are forgiven, they can REJOICE and be GLAD, HAPPY and CONTENT, because their SINS are FORGIVEN. Their TRANSGRESSIONS will never be remembered by God, He will REMOVE THEM as far as the EAST is from the WEST, because of His GREAT LOVE for His own. That amount of FORGIVENESS is something to REJOICE and be GLAD about.
Those who have TRULY GIVEN their HEARTS and LIVES to God, by COMING to Him, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and CONFESSING their SINS to Him, then BELIEVING, with ALL their HEART, that JESUS died and was RESURRECTED from DEATH and the GRAVE, in order for them to have ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and to be able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, THEY are the ONES who are BLESSED. Are you in this category?
Another group who are BLESSED, are the NATIONS of the world, whose God is the LORD, those whose people are GOD’S CHILDREN, and the NATION that will HONOR, RESPECT and UPHOLD GOD’S LAWS. A nation that will NOT PERSECUTE those who WORSHIP the TRUE LIVING GOD, but will HONOR and RESPECT their WORSHIP. That nation will be BLESSED. This attitude can be accomplished when there is the PROPER, RIGHT, GODLY LEADERSHIP in place, then will God bring the BLESSINGS on such a nation.
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, you are NOT His Child and you will not be BLESSED. In order to receive God’s BLESSINGS, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your SINFUL lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. CONFESS your SINS to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and BE BLESSED. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
