The blessing of Abraham a promise God gave His people to make them prosperous where ever they go. The blessing of Abraham can’t be removed from the person by means of BEE, transformation or the changing of names or anything designed to take control of that person’s life or wealth. The blessing of Abraham follow the person it was given to. Let me explain to you what the blessing of Abraham is, where it came from and why you can't get rid of it even if you kill or chase the people away. Isaac was the son of Abraham, God made a promise to Abraham that his seed would be blessed where every they go. We can see here in Genesis 26 how the blessing worked for Isaac [Genesis 26 - 1 Now there was a famine in the land—besides the previous famine in Abraham’s time—and Isaac went to Abimelek king of the Philistines in Gerar. 2 The Lord appeared to Isaac and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live. 3 Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you. For to you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham.]

Isaac obeys the instruction of God and stayed in the land. He started to farm and became very rich so rich that the people of the land envied him and started to destroy his property [Genesis 26 -12 Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him. 13 The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy. 14 He had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him. 15 So all the wells that his father’s servants had dug in the time of his father Abraham, the Philistines stopped up, filling them with earth.]

The people of that land became afraid of Isaac because of his wealth and asked him to move away from them so that they can take his wealth. He left the country and gave the people all his land and his farms but he took his blessing with him. All the wells and farms dried up when Isaac left and the people of the land beg him to come back and promised to leave him in peace. [Genesis 26-16 Then Abimelek said to Isaac, “Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us.” 17 So Isaac moved away from there and encamped in the Valley of Gerar, where he settled. 18 Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them. 19 Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there. 20 But the herders of Gerar quarreled with those of Isaac and said, “The water is ours!” So he named the well Esek,[c] because they disputed with him. 21 Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah.[d] 22 He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth,[e] saying, “Now the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land.” 23 From there he went up to Beersheba. 24 That night the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bless you and will increase the number of your descendants for the sake of my servant Abraham.” 25 Isaac built an altar there and called on the name of the Lord. There he pitched his tent, and there his servants dug a well. 26 Meanwhile, Abimelek had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces. 27 Isaac asked them, “Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?” 28 They answered, “We saw clearly that the Lord was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’—between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you 29 that you will do us no harm, just as we did not harm you but always treated you well and sent you away peacefully. And now you are blessed by the Lord.” By killing or chancing away the blessed people in this land will ultimately lead to the lands destruction. [Genesis 26-4 I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspring[a] all nations on earth will be blessed] To leave you with a thought [Romans 12: 18 (If it be possible live peaceably with all men)]
