OUR INHERITANCE IN CHRIST JESUS!
Every heir is eligible for an inheritance. The size or extent of your inheritance will depend on the wealth and resources of your parents or benefactor.
An inheritance can't be earned through the application of human effort, ability or hard work. It’s a free Promise to be received by heirs who believe it, know it, and then ask passionately and persistently with perseverance, for its fulfillment. Though it's our birthright, there's a thief, the Devil, always out to oppose us, nevertheless, our victory is always certain in Christ Jesus, Hallelujah!
So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the Law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s.
As Jesus Christ ensured that God was His only Father, He has given us the privilege to do the same. What a great, glorious privilege! Now, if God is our ONLY Father, what then should be the size or extent of our inheritance in Christ Jesus?
A) EVERYTHING GOD HAS IS OURS - HE'S OUR FATHER!
As heirs to God we're entitled to a great inheritance, just like every heir.
Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, everything he has belongs to you.
See also, Luke 15:28-32; Romans 8:16, 17; Hebrews 2:11; Galatians 3:29.
B) GOD DECLARES HIS ASSETS THAT ARE ALSO CURRENTLY OURS!
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. (All the US Dollars, Pound Sterling, Euro, Yen etc)
See also Psalm 50:10-12; Psalm 24:1. All things are yours. 1Corinthians 3:22b. All these are yours!
C) AN INHERITANCE IS ASKED FOR, NOT EARNED OR WORKED FOR! AN INHERITANCE IS A GIFT, PRIMARILY BY BIRTHRIGHT!
Servants, slaves and subjects labour and receive rewards for their services rendered, while sons, heirs and saints ask and receive gifts as their inheritance, Hallelujah! This is the bedrock of the gift of wealth, our far more superior covenant of great wealth inheritance in Christ Jesus!
The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: “The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.
2 Corinthians 8:9.
You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.
See also Luke 15:12; Matthew 7:7-11; Galatians 4:7; Romans 4:4; Ephesians 2:8, 9.
D) AN INHERITANCE IS AN UNDESERVED GIFT, PRIMARILY BY BIRTHRIGHT, RELEASED SUDDENLY, SPEEDILY AND WHOLLY, IN SUPERABUNDANCE!
“Don’t be afraid!” David (GOD) said. “I intend to show kindness to you because of my promise to your father (elder brother), Jonathan (Jesus Christ). I will give you all the property that once belonged to your grandfather Saul and you will eat here with me at the king’s table!” Mephibosheth bowed respectfully and exclaimed, “Who is your servant, that you should show such kindness to a dead dog like me?” Then the king summoned Saul’s servant Ziba and said, “I have given your master’s grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family.
The younger son told his father, ‘I want my share of your estate now before you die.’ So his father agreed to divide his wealth between his sons.
See also Genesis 2:6-15; Deuteronomy 6:10, 11; Ephesians 1:11; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 3:16, 17
E) THE INHERITANCE REMAINS WITH THE OBEDIENT HEIR!
The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden— except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”
You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God.
See also Deuteronomy 6:10-19; Luke 15:28-32; Deuteronomy 28:1-13.
F) INHERITANCE ACCOMPANIMENT - WITH THE INHERITANCE COMES LOYAL, COMPETENT SERVANTS OR OTHER PEOPLE'S EFFORT, EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE! (O.P.E) - The prodigal son wasted and lost his entire inheritance because he had no investment plan, and didn't ask his father for competent, faithful and loyal servants to help accomplish his investment plan, like the noble man did in Matthew 25:14-30, and also in the remarkable story just below.
Then the king summoned Saul’s servant Ziba and said, “I have given your master’s grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family. You and your sons and servants are to farm the land for him to produce food for your master’s household. But Mephibosheth, your master’s grandson, will eat here at my table.” (Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.)
Ziba replied, “Yes, my lord the king; I am your servant, and I will do all that you have commanded.” And from that time on, Mephibosheth ate regularly at David’s table, like one of the king’s own sons. Mephibosheth had a young son named Mica. From then on, all the members of Ziba’s household were Mephibosheth’s servants.
See also John 4:34-38; Isaiah 61:1-7.
As we ask for our inheritance, we must also ask our heavenly Father for a lucrative and practical investment plan. We should also ask for faithful, competent and loyal people to help manage, organize and accomplish our investment plans and goals. God will send them promptly, since this is our entitlement as His heirs.
G) JUST ONE OPPOSITION TO ANY OF OUR INHERITANCE.
1) To our gift of salvation/righteousness, we bind and cast out the spirit of UNBELIEF.
John 16:9, 10.
The world’s sin is unbelief in me. Righteousness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more. See also 2Cor.4:3,4.
2) To our gift of healing, we bind and cast out the spirit of INFIRMITY.
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. (Whatever Jesus took away we are to cast away!)
3) To our gift of wealth, we bind and cast out the spirit of BANKRUPTCY. We should also attack the Gates of hell and Principalities, as major oppositions. Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 6;12.
You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor,( To be rich & then become poor is bankruptcy) so that by his poverty he could make you rich.
If we violently attack these devils with our mighty weapons of our warfare ( the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, the power of the Holy Spirit, prayer and fasting etc), loosing down these gifts, that's all we require to receive our inheritance from our heavenly Father who loves to give us the kingdom, Hallelujah!
As sons, saints and heirs of God, as we ask and receive our great wealth inheritance from God, we don’t need to WORK any more for money, men and material benefits. Instead, our money, men (servants, employees) and material assets should do far better and more productive WORK for us in our absence. See Matthew 25:14-29; Genesis 39:2-6, 20-23; Genesis 41:37-44; 2Samuel 9:1-10.
Remember, an asset that is not generating an income is a liability. Don’t be sentimental, get rid of such “assets” if you need capital to advance. Then, keep buying and acquiring income generating assets, employing loyal, competent and faithful professionals and specialists to manage them. I assure you that God will bless and enrich you greatly by His far more superior covenant of the GIFT OF WEALTH through intensive intercession. This is our right as heirs of God, Hallelujah!
Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, everything He has belongs to you.
Only ignorant, timid or disobedient heirs are deprived of their inheritance. While the immature heirs are delayed of their inheritance. See Galatians 4:1,2. Let’s build up our faith on God’s Word and take full possession of our great wealth inheritance in Christ Jesus.
Enjoy a marvelous day in God's awesome presence.
