Pattern of the Priestly Blessing (RH)

Programme: Workers Blessing/Revelation Hour (RH)

Date: Saturday, 3rd February 2024



Reverend Kayode Oyegoke said, “The most of my blessings to you are teachings . One way of blessing is via teaching or preaching. When God blessed Adam, He “said” unto him (Gen. 1:26). Likewise, I would be saying to you. Not only saying to you, I am blessing you and praying with you. Don’t make light of it.”


Genesis 1:20-23

“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. [21] And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. [22] And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. [23] And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.”


Genesis 1:26-28

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. [27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. [28] And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”


Genesis 12:1-3

“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: [2] And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy 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.”

Genesis 3:6-21

“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. [7] And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. [8] And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. [9] And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? [10] And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. [11] And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? [12] And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. [13] And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. [14] And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: [15] And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. [16] Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. [17] And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; [18] Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; [19] In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. [20] And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. [21] Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.”


Genesis 4:11-17

“And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; [12] When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. [13] And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. [14] Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. [15] And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. [16] And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. [17] And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.”


I read the verses above to show us the reason initiating blessings is important, and why people should be blessed. The first time the earth experienced a curse was immediately after the disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, when they ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The next reaction of God was to pronounce a curse (Gen. 3:14). God first of all cursed the serpent (Gen. 3:1). Before the curse, the serpent was not a crawler. However, by its involvement in conniving to bring death to the earth, the serpent was cursed by God. God cursed the serpent by limiting its ability (Gen. 3:14-15). The serpent was not a goer with/on its belly. The serpent might have been a creature who stood tall. The Bible does not describe how the serpent operated before the curse. However, it is clear, that the serpent had a kind of limb. 


When God cursed the serpent, it became limited. That which God said has not changed until now. Nothing could change the serpent's outward formation. This tells us that the serpent had a design by God when it was first created, and when it was formed. The expression of the animal was much more than the latter. God cursed the serpent by touching its form. Therefore, for God to bring a curse, He touched the formation of the creature. Moreso, the serpent was cursed above all animals (Gen. 3:14). The rest of the animals were not guilty of the curse but came under it because of the serpent and man. Man was the inviter of the curse. He ought to have refused the serpent but he brought death.


Romans 5:12  

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”


Romans 5:19  

“For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”


Genesis 3:14,15

“And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”


God allowed the curse to come upon the animals of the field as a result of Adam's disobedience. But what the serpent had was both as a result of Adam's disobedience and the serpent's involvement. Curse was on every creature. No other creature has a deformity like the serpent in their visage because the serpent’s curse was higher. The curse did no't affect the look of man; they (the man and the woman) were still the same way in design although they fell and received the life of death into our universe. The curse was in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The greater the offence, the more the clear-cut expression of how the curse fell on the disobedient. The serpent was cursed above all (Gen. 3:14). Man was cursed but not directly. God also allowed some curses to come to the woman (Gen. 3:17-19)


Thorns and thistles are sicknesses and diseases. Herbs are medicines. This means that man will fall into the help of the earth. A fruit is not for healing the body; only herbs heal the body. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. But, the fruit is for life. God meant that they would have to depend on herbs of the field for healing. Tilling the ground interpreted that the man would farm, he wouldn't eat in leisure. The sun will smite him by day and the moon by night.


Adam made a special commitment to sin. The first commitment brought all these into the earth, but the second commitment (Cain’s commitment to sin) brought more. This was the first time God cursed man (Gen. 4:10-11). God has cursed the earth in Genesis Chapter 3 but in Chapter 4, he cursed man. Cain is the first man God cursed. The first curse was not a curse per se, but more of a limitation to unsettle man. However, in Chapter 4, Cain invited the curse. It is not easy to be free from the way of Cain.


Genesis 4:12. 

“When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.”


All men are fugitives. And to bless the saints, you need a priest. Those who can bless the church as she ought to have not arisen. Impartation of blessing by hand has limitations. God did not lay hands on Adam when he created him and blessed him (Gen. 1:26; Gen. 5:2). One can be created and not be blessed. To bless is to say/declare to your operating system; to talk to you; to release you and set you in motion for your expression. You were created. You can be created but not be blessed. Many have been recreated in Christ Jesus but have not been blessed (2 Cor. 5:17). Blessings in the New Testament are for recreated Christians. We have received certain kind of blessings but not the blessings of the New Testament.  


New Testament blessings for recreated Christians lay in the storehouses of blessing. Blessing takes teachings and sayings. One can be recreated and has not gotten a blessing. The saying that God said in Chapter 1 of Genesis did not have an effect. It takes formation. Formation is needed to carry out the blessing. Creation without formation makes the blessing lie inactive and dormant. Formation is necessary. It is the body that can make a blessing function. God created animals in Genesis 1, but they could not function until He formed them in Genesis  2 (Gen. 1:20-25; Gen. 2:19).


God called Abraham from the Ur of Chaldees (Gen. 12:1). This calling is likened to the recreation of his spirit. Leading him means forming him. Abraham was led from Genesis Chapter 12 to Chapter 22 to receive the blessings. It took 10 chapters to activate the blessings. All those blessings were said in Chapter 12 but had to be resaid in Chapter 22. Blessing is two-sided. It can be a promise and might not have rested, that is, the blessing is hanging. One can have a promise but has not become their material (a substance within). Blessing can be upon you but has not rested on you. God worked overtime to make you get the blessing.


Genesis 4:12 KJV

“When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.”


Genesis 4:12 AMP

“When you cultivate the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength [it will resist producing good crops] for you; you shall be a fugitive and a vagabond [roaming aimlessly] on the earth [in perpetual exile without a home, a degraded outcast].”


Another word for one who is a fugitive and vagabond  is to be unstable, mediocre, a wanderer or useless. He is someone who goes on without a purpose. A purpose pulled Cain out of presence. Immediately God cursed him, he became a wanderer, and that wanderer (a fugitive) built a city. The day Abraham met God, God stopped his aimlessness. Cain built a city and didn’t die homeless. However, a lot of people are fugitives and vagabonds. Abraham was also aimless before he met God. The day he met God, God stopped his aimlessness. To aim means to get the target. You can be firing but you are not hitting the target. You can misfire. 


When God cursed Cain, he was only declaring the curse which Cain inherited from Satan by obeying Satan. Cain became like his father, Satan. Before man’s life can be given true meaning, it’s not easy to redeem man from being a fugitive and a vagabond. One can be constructive while being a fugitive, and at the same time look fruitful. Cain gave birth to children and generations. You can produce and be successful, but you are aimless.


Deuteronomy 30:19-20

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: [20] That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”


Blessing is life, while curse is death. The purpose of the blessing is to cut off the fugitive and vagabond. God gave the physical land to Israel to remind them of home, and how to end. The adversary is fighting hard for the teachings to be stopped because he needs vagabonds. Vagabonds are those who will refuse God’s order of life. 


You are a workforce for humanity to locate the accurate path away from being cursed. You are a soldier on the path of the blessed one. The thought of proactive achievement, showing purpose and relevance is from vagabonds. A vagabond and a sane/blessed man can both build a city. The difference is that if you go into the city of a vagabond, a system runs in it that will make one inherit death. But if you follow those who are looking for a city whose builder and maker is God (Heb. 11:10), you are following a company of people who have, by God and by mercy, found the chart of the path of those whom God has blessed. Blessing is laid before us. In the beginning, He laid two paths before Adam: blessing and curse (Gen. 2:16-17)


Some may argue that Cain lived the curse and not us. But Cain’s life filled the earth in Chapter 6, and only 8 men in Noah’s ark escaped (1 Pet. 3:20; Gen. 7:7). It means a lot of men on earth became fugitives and vagabonds. A preacher ought not judge people by things a vagabond can have. We do not disdain the natural. God created the natural. What we are against is how the nature of the fall bears these things. The way the unbelieving regards ephemeral things is what we are against. Cain was tempted. Satan came and told Cain that he was wasting time in the presence of God and he was growing older. He told him that he should make haste. So Cain decided to make haste. Cain never trusted the presence any more, He lost faith in it. Whenever you are in presence, the greatest battle is to take you out of it. 


Satan was in presence but he went out, he therefore knows how to tempt people. Satan became overly ambitious and wanted more, desired the inordinate — something away from his design —  these things took him out of presence. Within his heart, he lost trust in presence. He began to think in his heart that God only limits potential. This language—“God limits potential” —is not modern; it is older than the earth. It was the first language that Satan spoke to Adam (Gen. 3:4-5). Whoever comes to tell you that your pastors are limiting your ability is only retelling what Satan told Cain. Cain became creative; he birthed the idea of a city and became the first architect. This pattern flowed onto Cain's children; they were all creators (Gen. 4:22). Satan can make people creative. Satan is not a “dirty gutter boy”. He is a designer of cities. Satan has seen a civilization that is higher than man. 


Whatever man is doing on earth stems from the world of angels. Satan is trying to teach men how to copy the technologies and advancements of the angelic world. He understands all manner of waves and knows how to utilize them, from infrared to ultra-waves and more. Fallen angels know more about earth than human beings. They are engineers. Satan can raise a man and “bless” him. Jesus owns a world more sophisticated. God created the angelic world. This is to say that all that is being copied to earth, including the idea of a city that Satan gave to Cain, is a copy of the invisible; just as Moses was shown the vision of the tabernacle which he replicated on earth. All of these things are in heaven—cities and worlds built with more sophisticated materials. 


Our earth is a blessing and it is limited. God designed the earth to be so limited that that which is in heaven would not be directly copied and easily done here. There are laws there that are easily operational. To get those things and bring them into our world, certain things have to be put together. For instance, the tabernacle Moses saw was made of a superior material but he had to use inferior earthly materials to copy what is real. 


A fugitive is one who borrowed an idea that God has not given authority to be released. God did not want man to dwell in cities and He had a reason for that. He created man in Eden for a reason, but Satan was hasty for a city and he gave Cain that haste. God wants the mind to be detached from earthly goods. He wants to be the giver of these things. God clothed Adam with better clothing than Adam had thought for himself; God made provision (Gen. 3:21). This shows that from the beginning, God intended and still intends to be the One who solely provides and clothes us. 


Our physical body matters to God and He is concerned about it. God knows when we are going naked and He makes provisions available before we get to nakedness. When we are not thinking of provision, God thinks for us and He will provide. We do not know that heaven has blessed us, but we will wake up one day and see natural things begin to come to us. God thinks of us; He knows that we have need of these things (Matt. 6:32).  


Matthew 6:30-32

“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? [31]Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? [32](For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”


Oftentimes, we assume that God cannot give us the things that we want but we should always ask Him first. We should be bold to ask God for the things that we want. God will not bring fugitives and vagabonds to His children who desire to get married. He will bring those who know how to say the right things, who can say these things, who know what to say and who will say them the way they ought to be said. The only thing we should do is to remain and trust in presence, and God will bring the right ‘sayer’. Even if there seems to be no ‘sayer’, God is able to raise sayers from the dust of the earth.

The Blessing


These things are sayings to us. God is breaking boundaries because He has said it and so shall it be. Sayings differ. There is a time when God is really saying it. God can be saying a thing, but there is a time when He really says it. 


Genesis 22:15-18

“And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, [16]And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: [17]That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; [18]And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”


This is the same principle. Firstly, God said to Abram when he had not yet birthed a child that He would bless him and bless generations after him (Gen. 12:2). As Abram's account in righteousness began to accrue, God began to say it several times until the day He decided to say it (Gen. 22:17)


“This is a workforce and it is like giving yourself. Believe the Lord and believe Him in His servant that in blessing, He will bless you.”


Jacob received sayings from Isaac on that day. He took the place of Esau to be blessed. The blessing had not yet come upon Jacob. There should be a training season for Jacob to be really blessed. It took him some time. The first test of the blessing was that he married Leah. Leah was not the woman he intended to get married to but God said no. God was the one who changed things. 


Genesis 29:24-25

“And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid. [25]And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?”


God knew that, with Rachel in the picture, He would not have the heart of Jacob. The Lord aimed at something and Jacob fell right in by falling in love with Rachel. If Jacob had rejected Leah, that would have been the end. 


Blessing has some sacrifices attached to it. Right now, some people are making sacrifices and it is a great honour to be able to do so. Everyone has his own design and different manners of sacrifices. The way one's life is committed to God shows how much of a lover such is. This was what Abraham did; he came to a mountain place of sacrifices and God released everything that was inside Himself (Gen. 22:16-18)


Ephesians 2:8-9

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9]Not of works, lest any man should boast.”


Though we are saved by grace and not by works, we have also received immeasurable grace for work. 


Daddy proclaimed, “Your life is about to be translated and God is about to change things around you.” 


The deformity that came as a result of a curse was what Jesus came to deal with. What Jesus did can never be overemphasised. It is beyond what we can imagine. 


Ephesians 1:3-4

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: [4]According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love…”


What are you looking for? What do you want? 


Daddy blesses, “If God asks us these questions, we will not remember that we want natural things. We will take stock and have wisdom of what will be of more profit to us.”


If these questions come to us, we should ask for the grace to ask because something is about to change. Anything you ask becomes so. We should ask from God and tell Him what we want. There is an anointing for that. God has heard us and it is done.


“Today, God is authenticating upon you the reality of you being blessed. I have used teaching to invoke blessings and that is the duty of a priest. I have used teaching to invoke something here and that thing is here. We have the right of saying the blessing in another manner. As Jesus would say to you, “Be blessed, prosper and be in health as your soul prospers” (3 Jn. 1:2). The eye of my heart saw souls fading and I see God treating that. The Lord said I should say to you, ‘You will not pass away. You will remain.’ Every sickness and disease will expire here in the presence of the Lamb.”


“Spiritual blessings in heavenly places are what I have been teaching today. There is a higher power available to make these blessings so in your life. The Lord bless you and keep you.”


 The apostles were blessers. They were not just greeting in their epistles; they were saying blessings. 


2 Thessalonians 1:2

“Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”


We do not know how much Cain’s generation poured on us. What Cain brought to the earth was in Ham in a measure, but Ham did not get corrupted, he entered into the ark. It took some generations for that Cain’s gene to show in Nimrod—that fugitive and vagabond life. We should thank God that He arrested us. 


Psalms 73:3

“For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”


The wicked here does not refer to those who have come into uttermost wickedness. The wicked can be an ungodly person. This is somebody who is using the principles of the devil to prosper, someone who uses a twisted principle to prosper on earth. Years ago, these wicked people were models for us; people liked them and that took their heart. However right now, such things no longer move our hearts. 


We should thank God because Satan’s stars are not our models anymore. God saved us from vanity dreams and vagabond pursuits. He also redeemed us from fugitive passions, removed our ignorance and fought our wars; we should thank Him. 


I see God removing a stumbling block from our lives. It is not easy to completely obliterate curses. It takes some time for curses to pass if we are not yet healed. But God is healing us and when He is healing, He is deciding to bless. God needs to take some time to remove limitations because curses are another way of seeing blessings. May we see how blessed we are. No curse will steal your blessings and destiny. Curses can steal the throne of God in you. 


Revelation 22:3

“And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him…”


A curse is a throne. What was driving Cain was a throne of iniquity. We will not be under the throne of iniquity; instead, we will be blessed. Today, stand up from thinking about things that weigh you down and know that you are too much for what Satan is saying. Know that you have been promoted.
