YOU ARE AN HEIR
Whether You Know It Or Not
Whether You Believe It Or Not
You Are An Heir Of Almighty God
First of all you are an heir of everlasting life. Second, when you receive everlasting life, you become heir of everything God has.
You really need to know and fully understand the REALITY of being an HEIR of God.
When you follow the rules set forth in God's WILL, you get peace, joy, health, happiness and prosperity. Do you want these things or do you just give lip service to them?
Jesus said: Jo. 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;
Jo. 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
If you are in any kind of bondage: Physical, mental or financial or whatever, you either do not know the truth or you are not doing what it says to do.
Oh, Sure, some of you will say "I believe in evolution. I don't believe in God". Friend you have been deceived. Everything left to it's self dies or deteriorates. End of evolution theory. That gets us back to the Creator.
Consider this: Say you heard that Ross Perot or Bill Gates had died, and shortly thereafter received a letter from the administrator of his estate. The letter states that you have been named to inherit $10,000,000.00, provided you meet the terms of the will. Be honest, wouldn't you do everything in your power to find out the terms of the will and meet them.
Then, it would be just good sense to find out the terms of God's will and meet them.
When I read Acts 10:34 I knew that God dealt with everyone the same. I just didn't know how. That was a long time ago.
Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Then in 1992 as I read Hebrews 9, I instantly realized how He did it. Before we go to that scripture, however, let us look at some scriptures which establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are heirs.
Ro. 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Ro. 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Gal. 3:29 And if you are Christ's, then are you Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Gal. 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differs nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
Gal. 4:7 Wherefore you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Heb. 6:17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
1 Pet. 3:7 Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
Now that we have established the certainty that we are heirs of God, let's continue.
Of course, the heirs mentioned in the above scriptures are those who have been born again, that is, obtained eternal or everlasting life. The fact is, though, everyone who has ever been born is an heir of eternal life. It is simply a matter of meeting the terms of the WILL!!!!!!
It seems that all Christians are aware that we are heirs of salvation, but they don't seem to realize that we are also heirs of everything God has. Everything He has is available to us in the here and now except the glorified body which we have no need of at present.
Now let's get to Hebrews 9.
Heb. 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new (1)testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
1. G1242. diatheke, dee-ath-ay'-kay; from G1303; prop. a contract (espec. a devisory will):--covenant, testament.
Heb. 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. (Someone who has made a legally binding will before death)
Heb. 9:17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator lives.
As I read those scriptures, they seemed to just leap out at me. Unless there is a written will, heirs cannot receive their inheritance.
Any time a person of great wealth makes a will, there are always three things involved.
First, the will is written specifying what has been inherited and the conditions that must be met in order to receive the inheritance.
Second, when the testator dies a lawyer reads the will to the heirs and explains what has been inherited and the conditions that must be met to receive what has been inherited.
Third, there is always an administrator to see that the conditions are met before the inheritance is given to the heirs.
Since God is the wealthiest being in the universe we have all of those things.
First, Acts 1:1 through the last verse of Jude is the written will.
Second, He, the Holy Spirit is the lawyer. Jesus said “When He the Spirit of truth is come He will guide you into all the truth and tell you things to come”.
Jo. 16:13 However when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will (2)show you things to come. How anyone can read this and still argue that God does not speak to people today is beyond me. If the Holy Spirit is not talking today, what is He doing?
2. G312. anaggello, an-ang-el'-lo; to announce (in detail):--declare, rehearse, report, show, speak, tell.
Third, God the father is the administrator. Jesus said, “Whatever you ask the Father in my name, He will give it you”.
Jo. 16:23 And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatever you shall (3)ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
3. G154. aiteo, ahee-teh'-o; of uncert. der.; to ask (in gen.):--ask, beg, call for, crave, desire, require. Comp. G4441.
G4441. punthanomai, poon-than'-om-ahee; mid. prol. from a prim. putho (which occurs only as an alt. in certain tenses); to question, i.e. ascertain by inquiry (as a matter of information merely; and thus differing from G2065, which prop. means a request as a favor; and from G154, which is strictly a demand of something due; as well as from G2212, which implies a search for something hidden; and from G1189, which involves the idea of urgent need); by impl. to learn (by casual intelligence):--ask, demand, enquire, understand.
We see here that when we meet the terms of the will we have a legal right to what we ask for. As a matter of fact, that seems to be what God was talking about when He said through Isaiah, “Put me in remembrance”. Isa 43:26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare you, that you may be justified.
It looks like He was saying, when you come to me tell me what the WILL says and if you have met the terms I will say it's yours now but if you haven't met the terms I'll tell you so you can meet them and I can give it to you. Isn't that the way a loving earthly father treats his children?
We know that God wants to bless his children because Jesus said so in: Lk. 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. It certainly stands to reason that if we have the kingdom, we have his blessings. It also states in Colossians 1 that we have been translated into the kingdom of His dear Son.
It is sad that so many have missed the reality of the WILL. If everyone had the revelation of the will, we wouldn't have all the different denominations, sects, etc., because the WILL says the same thing to every heir.
Look at what Paul says to the Ephesians about unity. 1775. henotes, hen-ot'-ace; from G1520; oneness, i.e. (fig.) unanimity:--unity.
Web. Dict. unanimity n. the state or quality of being unanimous; a consensus or undivided opinion
Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the (a)unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
a. Web. Dict. unity n., pl. ties. 1. the state of being one; oneness. 2. a whole or totality as combining all its parts into one. 3. the state or fact of being united or combined into one, as of the parts of a whole; unification. 4. absence of diversity; unvaried or uniform character. 5. oneness of mind, feeling, etc., as among a number of persons; concord, harmony, or agreement.
Now let's look at what he said to the Corinthians: 1 Cor. 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same (b)mind and in the same (c)judgment.
b. 3563. nous, nooce; prob. from the base of G1097; the intellect, i.e. mind (divine or human; in thought, feeling, or will); by impl. meaning:--mind, understanding
c. 1106. gnome, gno'-may; from G1097; cognition, i.e. (subj.) opinion, or (obj.) resolve (counsel, consent, etc.):--advice, + agree, judgment, mind, purpose, will.
There is no doubt that Paul believed that it says the same thing to every person.
Why do you think there are so many different teachings on the bible? Do they not cause confusion? God certainly does not cause confusion.
That is clear from this scripture: 1 Cor 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
How do we receive eternal life? And of course these are the terms of the WILL. Here they are.
Ro. 10:8 But what does it say? The word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Ro. 10:9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
Ro. 10:10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
You need to understand that believing here is not like believing that the color at the top of this page is blue. The believing that brings eternal like causes a person to stake their very life on that belief. It causes a change in a person's want to. 2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Once a person has met the terms and received eternal life, then that person is eligible for everything God has, provided the terms are met for those other things.
The creator God through His Son is still calling: Mt. 11:28 Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
