4. No More Curse


“And there shall NO MORE BE ANY CURSE: but the throne of the Deity and of the Lamb shall be in it”.


The conclusion of the whole matter is that there shall be no more any curse upon the earth and upon them who inhabit it. The Eternal
Wisdom and Power did not create the world that it might be forever under a curse. A curse is only an incidental occurrence, or casualty, in the Divine purpose; which was to erect a splendid habitation here fit for Him to reside in; surrounded by neighbors, all of whom should be intelligent, wise, faithful, and affectionate, sons with whom He could freely associate and enjoy life. This was His ultimate purpose in Creation as He has revealed it in this wonderful prophecy given to the Anointed Jesus; and by him communicated to the servants of the Deity, through his beloved disciple in Patmos. What is a week’s curse of seven thousand years compared with an eternity of blessedness to follow? The curse of this Millennary Week is a mere incident in the situation, turned to good account by the wisdom of Him who imposed it. The occasion of the curse was the transgression of the Divine law by the “very good” nature formed in and of the dust of the ground. “Cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 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”. So long, then, as the Sin-Nature continues to inhabit the earth there must be sorrow, toil, and death; for the sentence pronounced upon the sinning nature declares the continuance of the curse to be in all the days of its life.

To abolish the curse, then, is equivalent to the abolition of the nature cursed with sorrow, toil, disease, and death. This abolition is the consummation of all things, by which is introduced an entirely new creation; the basis of which is a nature that neither has nor can transgress —that is, the Divine Nature. All that comes out of the ground is cursed, and unclean; so that even the body of Jesus, and the bodies of the approved saints, in resurrection, require to be justified, rectified, purged, or perfected, by all-absorbing Spirit: which makes every atom of their substance instinct with incorruption and life; in other words, transforms it into Spirit. In such a removal of curse and uncleanness, a higher nature is developed, which is so clean and pure, that when it is indicated, it is represented by “fine linen, pure and bright,” or “white,” and “pure gold, transparent as crystal”. How infinitely inferior to this is the nature cursed! And is it to be doubted for a moment by any reasonable mind, that the transition from the accursed sin-nature, to the pure bright, golden and crystal-like, or Divine-Nature, is truly an ascent to the Father, who is Spirit? The new nature is the fine gold, precious stones, and pearls of the Holy City, developed in the “swallowing up” of the curse; so that, in relation to the saints, “there shall no more be any curse”. When they are transformed into the New-Jerusalem by the energeia (Phil. 3:21) or inworking power, that “descends from the Deity out of heaven,” there is to them entire freedom from everything pertaining to the curse. But this is not the case with the nations subjected to their iron, but righteous and blessed rule. These are under treatment for their accursed maladies, which are being healed by the medicine administered by the Saints — the Royal and Divine College of Infallible Physicians. Their medicinal treatment progresses in all the thousand years; at the end of which the curative process will be consummated in the destruction of all offending matter; and the abolition of sorrow, pain, and death; so that thenceforth “there shall be no more any curse” known in all the earth. “The Leaves of the Wood are for the healing of the nations,” who walk in the light of the New Jerusalem — for the taking away of the curse. The healing is not done all at once. They are therefore styled, ta ethne ton sozomenon, the nations of them being saved; not, who have been saved, but, who are undergoing the healing process in the prospective removal of the curse.
