Genesis 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
Sometimes one verse is spoken and becomes to a person more than it originally was. The above promise of the children of “the promised seed” made to Abraham is with power of the Spirit of God “to bless” all nations rather than “to curse” all nations. Through the children of the promise made to Abraham “shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;”. God promised Abraham to multiply them “as the stars” which is “lights” multiplied. Light is “to bless”. Darkness is “to curse”.
Luke 9:54-56 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?  But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
Should we call down fire from heaven “and consume them” ?
The only seed that multiplies LIGHT and remains is “His seed”. The only seed that multiples “as the stars” giving light and destroying the darkness is His seed. 1 John 3:8-10 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
“For THIS purpose” the Son of God was made manifest “That He might destroy the works of the devil.” That He might destroy the works of darkness with light “multiplied as the stars”. That He might destroy death and sin and the curse through blessing. Through the children of the promise made to Abraham of blessing and not the curse...all nations will be blessed. It is a certainty. All nations “blessed” through the children of the promise made to Abraham. Consider all the verses that say the children of God are to bless and to not curse. Zechariah 5:1-4 speaks of the curse “Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.  And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.  Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.  I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.”
See it, the curse enters into the body or the earth and goes to work eating and consuming the structure of that house until it is weakened...the curse consuming the timbers and stones thereof. This is more than “timber” and “stone” but the curse consumes and eats flesh and all that is not of God until it is weakened enough to collapse. This could be said of “the curse” which consumes the earth...entering in until she is consumed and passes away. Or it could be said “the curse” enters into the house and consumes until it falls. Many were told to eat it, this flying roll. “This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth.” It was bitter in the mouth but then sweet in the belly. It “the curse” consumes and eats away man’s glory and pride and arrogance and every vain imagination lifted above God ...until it all falls and “great is the fall” of it. great is the fall of every vain thing lifted up above God.
BUT God promised a seed...HIS seed through which all nations would be blessed and not cursed. The promise to rebuild “anew”out of those “base” things, those “low” things. To build up, edification in blessing and not the curse. This house built upon Christ, built of the Spirit of God and not man ...is sure in its foundation built up in blessing and not the curse which fails and crumbles.
In light of “all nations will be BLESSED through His seed” and how the children of promise are to be perfect as their Father in Heaven is perfect. Matthew 26:73-75 becomes...wow! “And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.  Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.  And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.”
Peter began to “curse and to swear, saying I know not the man.” ...and wept bitterly. Peter didn’t say words such as ‘shit’ or ‘damn’ but “cursed”. Leviticus 19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:  Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.  Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
“...all nations will be blessed through His seed.” All nations cursed...or all nations blessed. The curse enters in and consumes and devours; until what is eaten and devoured “timber” and “stones” cannot stand but falls to the ground. Galatians 5:15-16 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.  This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
In His seed, of the Light and not of the darkness ...all nations will be blessed.
 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?  And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others ? do not even the publicans so?  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
 But I say unto ...you which hear..., Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,  Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
