    "For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. " Jn 3:17 see also vss. 18-21 The will of God and His only begotten Son Jesus is to bless and not to curse.. Persistence in the lack of both faith and obedience is to bring a curse upon ourselves. It is as though God has held out two hands before us and we chose which we will ultimately receive. Our Savior in one moment can become our Judge in the next. God still turns the cursing of man against us into blessing if we remain faithful. Revelation 2:10
